It’s been nearly a decade since Marshall introduced its Major headphones and almost two years since the wireless Major II launched. Now, the company has updated its most popular model as the Marshall Major III. 

On the surface, the Marshall Major III looks a lot like the original, but with some critical changes. First, it features slight changes both to the headband and ergonomic 3D hinges. Marshall promises this one-two punch makes the headphones more comfortable to wear for more extended periods of time.

The Marshall Major III also includes updated 40mm dynamic drivers for improved sound.

As Marshall explains:

This modern go-to classic has been re-engineered for a cleaner more refined design, while the silhouette stays true to its original form. Sticking to the basics, the Major III is covered in time tested durable vinyl covering and proudly stamped with the iconic script logo, all giving a firm nod to the legacy of Marshall.

Other highlights include:

  • 30 hours between charges for Bluetooth version: Same as the previous models.
  • One button remote with microphone: Control your headphones and phone functionality with the one button remote with a receiver located on the detachable 3.5 mm cord.
  • Share your music just by having a friend plug into the free 3.5 mm socket.
  • For wireless version, Bluetooth AptX allows you to move within 30 feet of wireless listening range.

The wired Marshall Major III is $79 while the wireless version is $150. Both are available through the Marshall website and at retailers.

The Marshall Major III looks like a great release and at price points that sounds reasonable. We’ll try to get our hands on a pair for a full review.
