    Great headphones if ...
    - you are prepared to break them in for 40 hours - play your entire collection on them while you are asleep or at work at normal volume until they have racked up the hours. This will fill out the bass and enhance resolution in the mids to highs for loud complex sounds.
    - You prefer rock to classical. These headphones have been somewhat tuned to salute the live band Marshall amp sound. They will work for classical, but you gotta prefer rock.
    - You either like a tight fit (won't fall off when you pogo) or you are prepared to put them on your bike helmet at night to get them to open up. The head clamp errs on the tight / small head size. Also the way these fold small will further tighten the clamp so you wont want to fold small if you have a big head / delicate ears. I will wear for 3 or so hours but not all day.
    - Like a distinctive set of cans. These look great!!! ... and not everyone is prepared to do all the above, so they are not going to be on every Tom, Dick or Mary.

      Comments about Marshall Audio Major On-Ear Stereo Headphones with Mic and Remote:

      I am a video producer/editor, so really needed to replace my aging pair. I had two requirements: (1) great sound, and (2) comfort. There were a lot of headphones to choose from with #1, but #2 was much more difficult. I went into B&H and spent an hour trying them on. One sales person was really helpful and understood my dilemma. I have a small head, and the top piece of most headphones (especially the professional ones), were really uncomfortable.

      I did stumble on the Marshall Major On-Ear Stereo Headphones, but wasn't sure how they compared with the sound of the professional ones, as they seemed great to me! Independently, the B&H salesman guided me to the Marshalls, which I bought immediately.

      As one other reviewer said, you really do have to break them in, as they fit tight on your head. For two days, I stretched them using a basketball (really!), and then I bent them slightly to make final adjustments. And honestly, they are fantastic, both sound-wise and for comfort!! I can wear them for hours without any ear-burn (sound), or pain at the top of my head!

          Besides what I had mentioned earlier about this headphones, I just dicovered that's it's the best headphones I'ver used when practicing my guitar music, especially with the attached guitar effects. The sounds that I hear are pretty much the same with what come out of the guitar amps that I used. This is great when fine-tuning the effects without disturbing my neighbor.

            switched from in-ear buds to these on-ear style headphones and have been happy with the move. these have a low profile appearance, won't fall of off your head during commuting, and slip on and off with ease. sound wise they have a big dynamic range with plenty of low end. the little remote on the cord is pretty handy for skipping forward or backwards a song. and they're good looking to boot. no complaints!

              Comments about Marshall Audio Major On-Ear Stereo Headphones with Mic and Remote:

              When buying a [$] headphone, there's not much more you can expect than decent sound, and these phones definitely won't let you down.With an amazing throwback design, that reminds you of the legendary Marshall amps, it still manages to give you pretty great sound quality, with stable basses and hardly ever distorted treble. The only let down might be the size of the phones and the lack of noise cancelling of any sorts, which allow for ambient noise to eventually bother you when listening to music on noisy places.

                  Comments about Marshall Audio Major On-Ear Stereo Headphones with Mic and Remote:

                  Overall I'm not disappointed by my expectations of the Marshall name. I am impressed with their sound quality. The closed-back style does an excellent job of blocking out external noise. The leather padded ear cups are comfortable, but I can see where the other reviews would knock them for getting warm. Lucky for me my office is freezing, so I didn't so much notice or maybe it was mind the warmth. The I like the single-sided 6-foot cable with the coiled portion several inches down, so that I never ran the risk of yanking them them from my work station or off my head.I was a bit surprised that there was no carrying bag or case to store them in, but like I said I bought these with the understanding that I need to take care of them. So that responsibility was on me from the start. Also they are constructed well, I am not very concerned about the beating they will take being moved around in my backpack.Marshall backs the Major headphones with a one-year warranty and B&H offered a two year protection plan, which I did opt for.The Marshall Major headphones fit my needs nicely. They are a reasonably priced, comfortable, noise-isolating headphone, that differentiate themselves aesthetically. Most importantly the sound quality lives up to the Marshall name. If you are looking for a comfortable set of headphones, they're worth a listen. I am not disappointied with my purchase.

                      These are great as far as sound, design, quality of manufacture, and overall style. The gold jack, coiled cord, brass Marshal logo plates on the sides (inside) and signature on inside top head band are fine aesthetic touches. Love the in-line mic as well since I use these with my cell phone for hands-free occasionally. The only negative I can mention is that they are very tight fitting. While not advertised as Noise Cancelling phones, they certainly are given the grip they place on your head. I found them uncomfortable for even a short listening period. In all fairness the sample I have is brand new out-of-the-box and not broken in. Overall these are a superbly made and fantastic sounding set of head phones.

                        I use these headphones to connect to the phone jack on my Canon XHA1s. The first time I used them was to record a live music performance. They had great sound. Very clear and rich. Easy to control the audio levels when it is coming through so well.

                          Although they are small great sound quality. Easy to carry around. Really functional. Great value, much better quality than other headphones i previously had whuch were more expensive. Love the retro look.

                              Great headphones! I originally just liked the look, but the sound quality is great, too. Compact for an over the ear headphone-easy to throw in a shoulder bag when not using. A little tight at first, but I stretched mine out a bit and now they fit great!

                                Warm sound, good bass, comfortable fit. I'm used to in ear headphones so I think the volume I listen at can be annoying to those around me so if you need them loud, I would consider in-ear ones instead.

                                I'm also used to in-ears so I can't tell if you pick up more background noise than other over ear styles.

                                  - you are prepared to break them in for 40 hours - play your entire collection on them while you are asleep or at work at normal volume until they have racked up the hours. This will fill out the bass and enhance resolution in the mids to highs for loud complex sounds.
                                  - You prefer rock to classical. These headphones have been somewhat tuned to salute the live band Marshall amp sound. They will work for classical, but you gotta prefer rock.
                                  - You either like a tight fit (won't fall off when you pogo) or you are prepared to put them on your bike helmet at night to get them to open up. The head clamp errs on the tight / small head size. Also the way these fold small will further tighten the clamp so you wont want to fold small if you have a big head / delicate ears. I will wear for 3 or so hours but not all day.
                                  - Like a distinctive set of cans. These look great!!! ... and not everyone is prepared to do all the above, so they are not going to be on every Tom, Dick or Mary.

                                    Comments about Marshall Audio Major On-Ear Stereo Headphones with Mic and Remote:

                                    These sound superb, especially for the price. Very accurate and clear. I use them for music mostly and they work great. The bass is very present without drowning out everything else while the treble is crisp and clear. They can get a little uncomfortable after a while but nothing unbearable. They are much smaller than I expected making them lightweight. They fold up nicely and are fairly compact. I love the gold plug and signature under the headband. They're stylish but not flashy like some other headphones. Understated and elegant. Great, great product for price. Highly recommended.
