In my hands I have a classic reinvented, the Marshall Major III headset. An on-ear bluetooth headset with a quite dignified sound, comfortable due to its pleasant synthetic leather and padded cushions, very light and foldable, and with a solid construction with little plastic to the touch.
CONTENTS OF THE BOX
When you open the box you will find the Marshall Major III headset itself, a USB charging cable and an extendable audio cable with a mini-jack.
While the definition and separation of instruments are of quite good quality, the frequency balance is not so good. The low end are clean and quite present. The treble is of quality, the nuances in each song are appreciated. The weak point is the midrange: short and strong, they lack punch. Speaking of instruments, the drum box sounds a bit hollow, without attack. (Note: a drum box has its fundamental frequencies around 500 Hz, a point close to the center of the mid frequencies. Looking for the box is a good way to start evaluating the media of an audio device)
The good news is that by boosting the EQ in the media area the sound is greatly improved. There goes my equalization proposal for the Marshall Major III with the (mac/pc) BOOM 3D software:
The microphone is of regular quality. I’ve recorded a sample of it that I insert down here.
If you’ve decided on these headphones, remember, leave the power button pressed until the LED goes from light blue to dark blue, otherwise they won’t appear to match (it took me a while to realize this).
List of features:
- Single button to play, stop, mix, adjust volume, turn on, turn off and control calls.
- 30h battery life.
- Compatible with Aptx bluetooth codec.
- Stick to the center.
Marshall Major III headphones are comfortable. Its padded, synthetic leatherette ear cushions are comfortable. They have a very flexible structure and do not squeeze at all. However, they do not fit too tightly and can easily fall out with just a few head movements. Because of their construction on-ear can be uncomfortable for the ears if worn over a long period of time.
One of the highlights is the construction of the Marshall Major III. They are covered almost entirely with synthetic leather, offering a pleasant feel in both headband and ear cups. They are quite reduced in size so that they do not bother hanging from the neck, and their folding makes them easy to carry in small spaces.
The design of these headphones with Marshall aesthetics is perhaps what generates the greatest attraction and that shows in the price. Having a pretty good sound, a great battery life, a more than acceptable comfort and an elaborated touch and finish, they do not reach the results and the quality/price ratio of the JBL LIVE 500BT that surpasses them practically in everything for a similar price.
