Marshall Major III Bluetooth®
Wireless on-ear headphones (Black)
Our take on the Marshall Major III Bluetooth® by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
The vintage-styled Marshall Major III Bluetooth headphones play music wirelessly from your phone.
Free-spirited wireless headphones that travel light
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 III Bluetooth headphones. These lightweight on-ears offer a defiant look and hard-hitting sound — without the need for a cable. Your music plays wirelessly from your phone, and Marshall's redesigned drivers deliver a well-balanced sound with a forward presentation.
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.
An impressive 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. Based on the previous generation's battery life, that's likely 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 III 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. Those square-shaped 'cups look cool, but also feel comfortable thanks to the extra-soft earpads.

The knob tilts in four directions, plus presses straight down, giving you 10 different functions: power on/off, pairing, muting the microphone, answering/rejecting/ending phone calls, volume up/down, play/pause, track forward/reverse, and fast forward reverse.
