Marshall Headphones

We mostly associcate Marshall with rock guitarists and loud amps. However, the company has now teamed up with Swedish headphone innovators Zound Industries to bring its audio expertise to the personal headphone market. The fruits of this union have now been revealed and the over-the-head cans have been joined by some earphones.

Marshall is now ready to sell two headphone products, called the Minor and the Major. This is an interesting move by the legendary guitar amp maker.

The headband of the Major phones have Jim Marshall's signature scrawled underneath and is covered in the same vinyl used for the company's classic amplifiers. The Minor earphones have a snug-fit design and come with a Marshall cable clip - very cool.

The exterior of the Major's headband is made out of the same vinyl used in Marshall amplifiers and it bears the original Marshall texture. The Major is a solid workhorse with great stamina, designed with non-stop, all-day listening in mind.

The Major headphones are available now for US$99, and will be shipped from the company's distribution center in Sweden (a flat rate shipping fee of US$20 has been put in place).

The Minor earphones get a similar technical setup to the Major headphones and come shipped with interchangeable silicone earpads, which help the patented EarClick system provide a snug fit. The outer casing has the markings of an amplifier's volume dial – a nice touch – and the branding is on the inside in gold, above the speaker grill. There's also a microphone and remote for use with mobile phones and a tangle-resistant fabric cord. They'll cost US$59 and, like the headphones, will be shipped from Sweden.
