About this deal
The included micro USB charging cable is refreshingly long, making it easier to use. Marshall estimates battery life to be around 30 hours, but your results will vary with your volume levels. Performance
The headband produces enough pressure for the Major IV headphones to stay glued to the head. Once a good fit has been found, the Major IV’s natural noise isolation is decent enough to at least mask the footsteps of someone behind you while keeping the wearer aware of what’s around such as traffic. In environments where there’s lots of noise, there is a struggle to hear audio.Pros: great sound, long battery life, great controls, fold up for travel, sturdy, great look, good connectivity
Select Major III Bluetoothfrom your sound device's Bluetooth® list. The indicator turns off when pairing is complete. The new Marshalls lasted well over 30 hours in my testing, making them some of the longest-lasting Bluetooth headphones around. You’ll probably be able to go weeks of commuting between charges, even at relatively high volumes. One other feature is using the 3.5mm cable to plug into another set of headphones and share your music. The cable is long enough for it not to turn into a ‘Lady and the Tramp’ situation, but I can imagine it being awkward unless you’re both sitting down. It does work, however; although it seems to work best with Marshall headphones (I used it with the Monitor II A.N.C). Signal noise seems prevalent if you try with another brand.That’s certainly the case with the Marshall Major III Bluetooth headset. Despite a premium appearance, these headphones are wonderfully affordable, as well as lightweight and versatile. Let’s take a closer look at what you can accomplish with the Marshall Major headphones. Marshall Major III review: Design and size The classic Marshall styling has been slimmed down and updated for 2018.

The Bluetooth mic offers decent intelligibility. Using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone 6s, we could understand every word we recorded, though the mic sounded slightly distant and there were some minor audio artifacts, which is typical with Bluetooth headphone mics. The cable's inline mic delivers excellent clarity, with even a little added bass response. They fare better with Wild Beasts’ All The King’s Men, in which baritone vocals sound rich and sonorous, while meandering bass lines underpin complicated drum fills and undulating guitar riffs. The Marshall Major III Bluetooth are another brilliant pair of wireless on-ear headphones from the British audio brand that bring great sound, very long battery life and classic styling.They look less blingy and the faux-leather look is less evident than the previous model. The cushy headband is both sturdy and springy, with some flexibility to fit bigger shaped heads too. Yes, these bluetooth headphones will connect wirelessly with a computer, tablet or smartphone that supports bluetooth.
