Marshall has been a staple in the audio space for years now, and they continue to put out great products down to this day. The company has been manufacturing top notch headphones and speakers lately, but one area they’ve yet to jump into is the wireless headphones space. However that has changed with the new Major II Bluetooth headphones.
These headphones feature a design that is nearly identical to the standard Major II as well as the same 40mm drivers, however these headphones include Blutetooth aptX and an impressive 30 hours of play time on just one charge. There is of course also an included 3.5mm headphone jack for use with devices that do not include Bluetooth which can also be used to share your music with someone else who connects their own pair of wired headphones.
The Major II Bluetooth headphones also include an analogue control knob which gives users access to their music controls and volume. There is of course also a microphone for phone calls.
Marshall will start selling the Major II Bluetooth headphones starting today in EMEA and later this Spring in the US for $150. More information is available in the press release below.
