Marshall Major II Black Headphone Review


Music by far is my mental escape. I love getting lost in my own little dancing queen world. In order to truly enjoy, you really do need quality sound, otherwise you are probably just killing your eardrums. Marshall Headphones and Marshall Amplification combine for beautiful clarity with the Major 2 headphones.

The Major 2’s are pretty similar to the original Major’s released in 2010 with a couple differences. The new Major 2’s have new customized drivers that deliver a better bass performance and midtones. The frequency response will be between 20 Hz and 20 kHz, with an impedance of 64 Ohms and sensitivity of 99 dB SPL (100 mV at 1 kHz). I also has a one button in-line remote which allows you to answers calls from your smart phone. On top of that, the new headphones come with a removable spiral mini-Jack cable with L-plug end, which can be connected to either the left or right headphone. You can use the second branch for sharing your music with friends and family.

As far as comfort and cost the Major 2 can compete with the best of its competitors. More cushion on the ear cups makes extended wear possible. Price as $120 they are much more reasonable than many others on the market priced well above $200.  Overall I would say the new and improved Major 2’s by Marshall will give you more “bass” for your buck.
