Marshall is updating its popular Major headphones, which are now in their 4th generation. 80 hours of wireless playing time and wireless charging are among the innovations.

With batteries that last for more than three days, you can rock all weekend – and well then! The new Marshall Major IV wireless headphones have also finally got wireless charging, so you never have to see a cable again. Should the battery still run out of power, you can still listen to music with the included minijack cable, as with regular passive headphones.

Unmistakable Marshall

Marshall Major IV nods recognizably to the guitar rock legacy, with the iconic Marshall logo on the sides and ear cups in the same vinyl material as the legendary Marshall amps. The shape is reminiscent of the previous Major generations. Comfort promises to be top notch with thick ear pads. And when you go out, Major IV can be folded and go easily into your backpack.

You can also control music, volume and calls directly from the control button on the earpiece or on the integrated control on the cable – if you ever want to connect it. The Bluetooth signal supports aptX, which provides better sound than the standard SBC codec.

Marshall Major IV: Availability

Marshall Major IV is only available in black. USB charging cable and audio cable are of course included, but you have to buy a wireless charger next to it.

The headphones will be in stock on October 14
