Compared to other brands


  • Above-average sound quality. The Marshall headphones are a blend of style and good audio. They deliver an above-average audio reproduction, a good amount of bass, and a decently balanced mid-range for instruments and vocals. They won't be the ideal critical listening headphones, but they should satisfy most casual listeners.
  • Stylish designs. The Marshall headphones have the same aesthetic style as their amps. This gives them a relatively unique, stylish, and rugged look compared to other headphone brands.
  • Mediocre build quality.  The Marshall Major II that we've tested looks rugged and well-built at a distance, but in hand, feels quite plasticky and not sturdy. On the upside, the plastic design keeps them lightweight. but this means they won't be as durable as headphones within the same price range from other brands.
  • No noise cancelling models. The Marshall headphones are slightly lacking in active features. They have some wireless models, but they're not as feature-packed as some of the other headphones available on the market for the same price range. This makes them a slightly less versatile brand for every day casual use. They also tend to lack in other more casual models too like sports headphones.

Overall, Marshall does not have the largest selection of headphones, but they do have a model for each type of headphone. They offer a couple of over-ears and on-ears with wireless variations, as well as two in-ear models. We've only reviewed 2 headphones from Marshall. but since they're an audio-focused brand, most of their headphones should deliver in the sound quality department. Unfortunately, they're a bit pricey for what they have to offer, often lacking in features like active noise cancelling and great app support for customization options.

    The best Marshall headphones we've reviewed so far are the Marshall MID ANC. They have the iconic design of the Marshall brand, they're lightweight, and they have a good sound with a well-balanced audio reproduction that packs a good amount of bass. They're wireless, have a long battery life, and have an efficient control scheme. However, their ANC is a bit weak compared to other noise cancelling models. If you're looking for a stylish and good sounding on-ear, then the Marshall MID ANC is a good choice.

Conclusion

The Marshall brand is most known for their amps, but they cleverly incorporate those aesthetics into their headphones. This gives their headphone models a unique and rugged look that stands out without being too flashy. They also tend to focus on good audio reproduction, and although we haven't yet reviewed many Marshall headphones, the ones we have delivered an above-average sound quality that's good enough for most listeners. Unfortunately, their lack of selection means you may not find a model for your specific use.
