Marshall, king of guitar amps, has a line of headphones to go along with their world-class amps and speakers. Marshall Headphones announced the Major II today, a new set of headphones that follow up on their previous Major headphones. These new Major II cans are supposed to sound better and feel better than ever. The Major II has “updated sound, looks and durability, as well as improved ergonomics, give way to a whole new level of listening.” The new headphones have custom drivers that provide deeper bass, and better highs and mid-range, and can be played louder with lower distortion. The Major II has a detachable coiled cord with a built in microphone for taking phone calls, and also has two 3.5 mm AUX jacks so you can share your tunes. Here’s what Marshall Headphones says about the Major II headphones:
“An impressive second act, the classic Major kicks up its performance a few notches. Updated sound, looks and durability, as well as improved ergonomics, give way to a whole new level of listening. A rock-solid character that’s built to last, the Major II makes its presence known. Its’ more advanced sound features include customized drivers, to deliver deeper bass and more extended detailed highs with a refined mid-range and overall lower distortion. The detachable double-ended coil cord with mic and remote is equipped with an L-plug end, providing improved durability and carrying ease. The dual 3.5 mm jacks allow you to choose which side you prefer to wear your cable on or to plug in and share your music with a friend.”
The Major IIs have an updated look, with rounded ear cans and a vinyl finish that should hold up to wear and tear. The hinges and headband have been redesigned to be more comfortable and fit better than the previous model. The Major II will adapt to your head shape so you can wear them for long listening sessions. Marshall Headphones will have the Major II available on their website and in retail stores in over 90 countries by the end of the month.
