We previously reviewed Marshall’s Major II headphones, and came away pretty impressed with the on-ear headphones. Now Marshall has updated the Major II line and added a Bluetooth version — the Marshall Major II Bluetooth headphones. Featuring the same great sound from the custom 40mm dynamic drivers, the Major II Bluetooth connects to your device using Bluetooth aptX and boasts an incredible 30 hours of play time on a single charge.
Bluetooth aptX minimizes audio and video syncing issues, not only allowing you to enjoy your music in CD-like audio quality, but also watch movies without experiencing de-synced audio. In addition, the detachable double-ended coil cord is compatible with any music player that has a 3.5mm jack, and when used wirelessly the 3.5mm auxiliary port on the earphones allow you to connect your headphones to another pair and share your music with someone else.
With the integrated analogue control knob you can play, pause, shuffle and adjust the volume. Phone functionality is also included so you can answer, reject or end a call with a few simple clicks. The built-in microphone allows you to have conversations or record voice memos through your device. Like it’s wired counterpart, the Marshall Major II Bluetooth headphones are collapsible, making them easy to store and transport when not in use.
Key features include:
- 30+ hours of playtime – above industry standard, the 30+ hours of playtime on a single charge keeps the music going strong
- Bluetooth aptX® – gives you the freedom and convenience of a wireless headphone combined with over 50 years of tried and true Marshall performance
- Custom 40mm dynamic drivers – tuned for excellent bass response, smooth mids and sizzling highs.
- Analogue control knob – gives you easy access to phone and remote features. Controls let you play, pause, shuffle and adjust the volume. Phone functionality is also included so you can answer, reject or end a call with a few simple clicks.
Marshall Major II Bluetooth will be available in EMEA on February 26th, and later this spring in the US for $150 at MashallHeadphones.com.
