Mc.redneck's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good surprise ... to rock!"

Marshall Major
I use it for a few days. Nothing like a "monitoring" model that will be far more linear, better insulated, built better but much more expensive.

So here is my opinion. It is ONE thing, he did well, do not ask him more.

I think it's a real bias on the part of the manufacturer, and I must say I find it successful.

I was offered this headphone, and generally speaking, in utlisation pro I use better quality headphones (Ultrasone, AKG, Sennheiser.). Me here at last it is a nomadic headset to listen to MP3.

it's comfortable, it takes a little ears warm. I find it quite suitable for the insulation of the nomad (in town it can not be too bothered by outside noise, but not to be surprised by either traffic for example.) Is also quite light.

I listen to mostly rock with. The pads are soft and thick, and it does not serve me too skull.

For a headphone of this bill can not expect a flawless production. Swaged wire and jack a little cheap may decrease its life expectancy.

This is where it gets interesting. This headphone made me smile at its output, a range of headphones nomadic stamped Marshall did not give me confidence, CA smelled rather crappy marketing plan than anything else.

And bah bah ... and in the end it's not bad. Not bad for the rock, and that's where I think Marshall did a good job. I will not make a toast on the material to its "right" or "colored" I like certain products in each category. The strength of this headphone is precisely that it is adapted to its logo. The report will be average or mediocre on other styles of music, but the large width of the soundstage really helps loosen the intricacies of mix (vocals / keyboards / strings, "artistic" effects of compression ..) that often go to the hatch. The bass are not artificially inflated (which usually just fills me. A kiss to Beats and Bose in passing.) So serious (Low / Bass drum) take out their place in the mix. The highs are a little muffled, probably an old reminiscence fans JCM 800,) and the mids are a bit inflated, thereby enhancing rather subtle sound of guitars, but also to highlight the speech intelligibility, and this is also really nice. The headphone is not a monstrous potato, thereby not making the listening tiring after a while.

I also tried on guitar preamp and I find the results quite satisfactory for playing guitar with headphones. light, not overwhelming, comfortable and rewarding.

newjazz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Pretty, but ..."

Marshall Major
I have long used in my home studio the AKG K140, and for several years the Audio-Technica ATH-M50, a marvel of value, which for 50 € more buries the righteousness Marshall sound level ( but it is true that there in between the headphone monitoring category ...)

Otherwise, listening to "hifi" I also had the Sony and Sennheiser, which I was pretty happy.

So finally, I would say that this headphone is nice, not a bad end, but the bass reproduction at once too "generous" and messy (my copy anyway) makes listening very unpleasant.

I used this headset to go with my iPhone. No concern for comfort, "small" atria not bothered me beyond measure.

Manufacturing is correct, but no more: it happened a pad detaches. Even if just the reclipser to the headset at this price level we begin to expect better.
No detachable connections ... as on most headphones so it's not really a criterion (say that it is rather pleasant surprise when a LA model the offers).

Good audio balance is clearly THE weak point of this headphone. While some here have heard a predominance of mid-high, I found my way over-representation of low, whatever the style of music listening. And even if they were accurate ... but no, it's drool everywhere.
The frequency response of these headphones vary it with a copy to the other?

courtjus's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good"

Marshall Major
How long have you been using?

Did you try many other models before buying it?
I am currently compare with the Spirit of One in FOCAL (freshly out) and also with my old Sennheiser HD200 which soon 10 years. I also had a SONY MDR 7504 and I could hear some BEATS, AKG, BEYER DYNAMIC, BOSE ...

What feature do you like most?
The Marshall is a marvel! The 1st second it seems a bit tinny, yet everything is well detailed, very accurate. Is acute low back a little but not annoying dutout. Certainly not neutral but so precise, it happens in all musical styles. But I'm a big fan of techno (I'm DJ), but not only, I listen to a lot of different music, and I judge always better with real zik.

FOCAL when he has insulates very well, a neutral sound, + cold, with beautiful infrabass, analytical (he know a her rotten), but overall not as accurate as MARSHALL (though it costs twice) .
SENNHEISER to the fact his time even after hard races (2têtes under the headphone ..... it happens!!), And 2 + cords later, he is still alive. Very little dynamics, no bass, but without specific +, comfortable, not isolate dutout, the foam is still not deformed or damaged. (And he has seen heads).
The SONY lasted only 1year and a half, he broke at the earpiece headband (though jaded, it was a kdo) assé precise but more neutral

the least?
I have not yet found

How do you rate the quality / price?
Very good, especially since I just OCCAZ topper like new but it is a 40 € KDO

I recommend!
Tomorrow I will test mode DJ

guillermo.nounours's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent headphones, I love"

Marshall Major
I received this headset as a gift at Christmas 2011.

Before him I had only headphones found in supermarkets, in ranges of average price (50 euros).

I love the look (very nice), its ergonomics, lightness (we do not feel almost), and especially its sound reproduction. Very good definition sound, clear sound clarity and realism of big sounds.

The only negative, it is hot after a while, which is not necessarily pleasant.

I think for the price (about 85 euros on the net), it was a very good headphone, look at Marshall.

I think I remake this choice unless my budget allows me to see what happens in the more expensive ranges.
