Marshall Major headphones launch
If you have ever been to a concert or played a guitar you have probably seen some of the famous audio gear and amps from Marshall. The company has some of the best-known electric guitar amps around and has been used by pro musicians the world over. Not too long ago the company started to tease us with hints at its new consumer line of headphones.
The things sounded interesting with styling cues from the firm's amps and other gear, but until now, we didn't know what the stuff looked like. Marshall has now gone official with its line of headphones with a fill-size over the ear set called Major and the small in-ear set called Minor.
The Minor earphones are compatible with any device using a 3.5mm headphone jack. They also have an in-line remote that offers full control over the music and allow the user to answer and end calls. The transducers in the Minor earphones are 15.4mm moving coil speakers and the frequency response is 20 Hz to 20Khz. They ship with an adapter for using the earphones with a standard stereo. They also ship with interchangeable ear pads and will sell for $59.
The Major headphones are full-size over the ear offerings and have a 40-inch extension cable. They are compatible with any 3.5mm or 6.3mm music player or device. The headphones fold flat or storage and use 15.4mm dynamic speakers. The ear cushions are super soft and the Major headphones have no in-line control for track. They sell for $99. These headphones appear to be playing on name recognition and style more than any new and unique features.
