Sound quality is pretty good too.
These are high quality headphones that look great, sound great, and feel great.
I know I have a big head but I always felt like they ran small.

I bought these as a replacement for my Panasonic RP-HTX7; phenomenal headphones which lasted for more than 12 years and took a ridiculous pounding. The Panasonic retails for $70. You will find these for about $100. With that in mind, they are perhaps the best pair of headphones your going to find for $100 bucks. I did not get these on

I tried these headphones out on an iPhone 3GS, Macbook Pro, and out of a 12 channel Behringer mixer I use for my video game and movie audio system. It needed more voltage to perform well with the iPhone, mainly because the iPhone audio signal is low voltage and has audio limiting on it (anyone can correct me on this). The Macbook and the mixer both made these headphones sing.
Burn in period with them was about 2 to 3 hours before they became warm and leveled out.

Sound quality and quantity are on par with the Monster Beats Solo and the Skull Candy Aviators. The aviators, although perhaps looking very cool, do not sound very good in a crowded room. The Monster Beats Solo are a great piece of equipment, but I see them on everyone.

A couple of points which may be of concern:

1. The size of the ear cups was surprising to me. I thought they were going to be bigger. They are tiny. Do not let that fool you.
After your initial encounter with them, you will appreciate their small form factor.

2. The cable on this is coiled for half the cable.

3. The audio jack is of VERY high quality. Textured for easy gripping and the cable has a spring coil sheathing it into the connector. Very nice construction.

4. The headphones are a bit small. So people with HUGE heads may not enjoy these.

5. They fold up. I did not know this but I am pleased they do.

I initially had no problems and liked these headphones quite a lot. However, after a year of minimal, at-desk-wear they are literally falling apart. At first the small, metal Marshalls engraved plates above the ear pieces both fell off. Glued them back, no problem. A little disheartening, as I stated before, they never leave the desk and get minimal use even there. Today I noticed a black piece of plastic laying on my desk beside the headphones. Upon further examination I realized that yeah, of course it was from the headphones. A chunk at the hinge just broke off all by itself and there's a hairline crack going up the outside of the hinge. Broke out the superglue (yet again) and glued the chunk back so that the earpiece wouldn't jiggle back and forth. I took a look at the opposite earpiece hinge, and noticed it too has cracks radiating out from the screw there. So it's only a matter of time before a chunk of plastic breaks off there as well. These headphones are just not put together very well, or the materials themselves are of poor quality (or both). Unless you like doing self repairs to your headphones every few months I'd just avoid these altogether. I'm sure there are better options out there at the same price point or maybe even cheaper.

If you do decide to buy them anyway, throw a tube of super glue in your cart as well. You are going to need it.

So, I was pretty pleased with these headphones; I got them the moment they were available, and they sound really good, very punchy, really solid sound. A few things:

1 - They may be called "Major" and look big in the pictures, but the actual headphones are waaaay smaller than I thought, maybe 2.5" square. I had to kind of squish my not large ears to fit in them, and for the first week or so, they were uncomfortable. I was able to break them in, though.

2 - The real problem is the joint that connects the headphone to the rest of the frame. The plastic is soft, and literally just comes apart. I have two pictures, which I will try to post to the product information page, but suffice to say, these headphones are ruined. These headphones lived at my desk--I never moved them, I never folded them up, I just put them on and took them off, but that action wore away the plastic and there was nothing I could do about it. I am looking at them right now and -- wow, I just picked them up and the entire Mashall faceplate just fell off the headset.

They may fix the plastic with enough complaints, but this first generation version of the headphones are not worth your money. This is clearly a quality control problem and is very disappointing.

Until they fix the plastic joint, I would strongly recommend not buying these.

I rarely write reviews for anything, but I'm so pleased and impressed with these headphones that I felt that I owe it to Marshall to do this. First, let me say that I would consider myself a "power user" and an audiophile to some degree. I am a multi-platinum credited audio engineer/producer, and over the last 18 years I've used more headphones than an average listener could imagine. My Sony earbuds (that I loved) took a dump on me after two years of faithful service, and I was in the market for a comparable replacement set. My friend told me that Marshall now makes headphones, so being a metal/rock guitar player I was naturally intrigued and wanted to try a pair of the earbuds.

About a month back, I walked past an Urban Outfitters store in D.C. when I noticed a headphone listening station setup near the front of the store. I went in and immediately noticed a pair of the Marshall Majors amongst the offerings available for a test run. I put the cans (headphones) on, plugged my EVO 4G in, and fired up some LOUD music that I consider to be well recorded and mixed. Needless to say, I was completely FLOORED by the POWER that these cans put out! I'm not talking about loudness, I'm talking about POWER. Like the same power emitted from cranked guitar amps that you try to capture in the recording studio. This power is often referred to as "moving air", and these headphones definitely moved some air! Since I was in the market for earbuds and not cans, I left the store without purchasing the phones... But I walked in circles around the block several times because I couldn't stop thinking about the sound of those headphones LOL. So, I went back to the store after about an hour of contemplation and purchased these for $109 after tax.
