Marshall Major IV Bluetooth headphones keep going like Springsteen

Marshall has released a new iteration of its iconic Major Bluetooth headphones. The Major IV embrace the brand’s distinctive rock aesthetic, and offer 80+ hours of wireless playtime, along with rapid charging and an improved ergonomic design. Improved ear cushions are softer to the touch for a more comfortable fit.

Not that these cans sound soft. The headphones use 40mm dynamic drivers, custom tuned for ‘roaring bass, smooth mids and brilliant treble.’

The earcups themselves sport signature Marshall branding and a tactile multidirectional control knob, for volume and track control.

New design changes include a fold clip that means the Major IV fold down into an even more compact size, while ear caps protect from too much wear and tear.

The headphones support Bluetooth 5.0, which helps explain their almost Springsteen-like wireless stamina, and there’s the option of a wired 3.5mm connection (if your mobile device supports the standard), if you run low on juice. That 3.5mm wired output also allows you to share your music with a friend, while you listen wirelessly. A USB-C charging cable is included in the box.

A quick-charge capability will give you 15 hours of listening for a 15 minute charge. The cans are available now for pre-order from marshallheadphones.com, and become available October 14, priced £129.
