Free-spirited wireless headphones that travel light

Marshall Major II Bluetooth wireless on-ear headphones

Crank up your music wirelessly using the Marshall Major II Bluetooth headphones' earcup button.

Stuck on the bus to your next gig? Or glued to your desk, working on your next project? Steal some freedom with the Marshall Major II Bluetooth headphones. These lightweight on-ears offer the same defiant look and hard-hitting sound as their wired version — without the cable. Your music plays wirelessly, big, and bass-heavy from your phone. And an incredible 30 hours of battery life gives you even more independence.

These 'phones are like most Marshall gear: easy to pack and durable. They're made of tough and flexible materials to survive life in your travel bag. Plus, they fold up into a portable bundle you can grip in your hand.

Wait....30 hours of battery life?

That's right. The built-in rechargeable battery offers up to 30 hours of wireless listening on a single charge. Early reviews have suggested that's not an exaggeration. You can expect to rock your way through the day, without constant fretting over finding an outlet. 

On-ear, one-button control over music and calls

Below the left earcup you'll find a small brass button. You can push that button in, but also move it around with your thumb like an analog joystick. Toggling the button in different directions let you play and pause music, skip tracks, and adjust the volume. You can even take phone calls wirelessly through the built-in microphone.

Classic Marshall looks, comfortable fit

The Major II Bluetooth headphones have a design that's all Marshall. There's a detachable coiled cable for wired listening that features minplug connectors modeled after guitar plugs. And the signature Marshall logo is stamped in raised, textured type on each earcup.

The square-shaped earcups look cool, but also feel comfortable thanks to the extra-soft earpads. They also create a tight seal to keep music from escaping.

AptX® improves your movie and music experiences 

Always sound-conscious, Marshall included aptX audio coding. This advanced type of Bluetooth wireless streaming retains virtually all the hard-hitting details of your tunes. AptX also keeps the wireless audio in sync with the video from compatible phones, tablets, and laptops. This way you don't have any weird sound delays with lips moving while watching shows or movies.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these based on a recommendation from Crutchfield rep and am very satisfied. I researched and research plus listened to other brands at local stores. These sound terrific, are comfortable, and controls work great. For the price they are excellent value. I have Grado SR80s and V-Moda Crossfade 100s to compare. I definitely recommend.

Pros: Great sound, comfortable, and lite weight

Cons: no case

Love love love!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I really love these headphones. I love that I can use them wireless or without a wire. They are comfy and functional and they look really cool too. The price was great for what you get as well

Pros: Great look, very comfortable, great piece. Can be used with or without wires

Cons: Not completely noise cancelling but I don't mind that because I am typically not in super riot noisy environments

Product Research


Overview: The Marshall Major II Bluetooth on-ear headphones are solidly built, using handmade custom drivers, and soft ear cushions. Built-in Bluetooth technology lets you wirelessly stream audio or take phone calls from your smartphone or other Bluetooth device. It also comes with a coiled cord with an in-line microphone and remote. The ear cups are hinged and fold in for storage or transporting.

Drivers: The Major II Bluetooth headphones are equipped with large 40mm handmade drivers that feature a wide frequency response. The headphones deliver deep bass and extended highs.

Bluetooth with aptX: With built-in Bluetooth, you can wirelessly connect to your smartphone or Bluetooth-enabled device and listen for hours. aptX lets you listen to your favorite content in CD quality, plus it minimizes lip syncing issues when watching videos. The built-in battery, when fully charged, can give you over 30 hours of playback time. Even a 2-hour quick-charge can power the headphones for approximately 8 hours. When the battery is exhausted, you can continue to listen by simply plugging in the supplied audio cable. The headphones come with a 40" Micro USB cable for charging the battery.

Control Knob: The Major II Bluetooth headphones feature a small control knob that lets you perform many music and phone functions. Located on the bottom of the left earcup, the control knob's 5-way action (left, right, forward, backward, and press down) lets you adjust the volume, pause, play, skip tracks forward or backward, and answer, reject, or end a phone call. The control knob is compatible with both iOS and Android devices.

Cable/Remote/Mic: When you can't (or prefer not to) go wireless, the Major II Bluetooth headphones let you plug in the supplied 48" coiled cable. The cable has an in-line microphone and 1-button remote control, and features spring-reinforced stress relief where it terminates into a right-angled 3.5mm plug. The plug is narrow enough to be used with many smartphone cases. The remote is compatible with select Apple iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch), and can control your music (play, pause, skip tracks forward/backward, fast forward/reverse) and phone calls (answer/hang up). The remote has limited functionality with Android devices.

Dual 3.5mm Jacks: The Major II Bluetooth has a 3.5mm jack on both ear cups. This allows you to choose which side to plug in the cable. It also lets you plug in a second headphone to share your music with someone else, even while listening wirelessly.
