    Especially for those who create music, you probably know the Marshall name from their iconic line of guitar amplifiers, but they also make a line of headphones and speakers for those who want to rock out while listening.

    I recently grabbed a pair of the Marshall Monitor Bluetooth Wireless Over-Ear Headphones, and after putting them through their paces, I’m not giving them back.

    Here’s why.

    INITIAL IMPRESSIONS

    I’ll list the specs and give more details below, but let me just say that the wireless performance of these headphones won me over. Before these headphones, I had tried wireless in-ear headphones, but could only use them for limited amounts of time because of listening fatigue from having something jammed into my ear canal. No thanks.

    I had also tried wireless headphones that required you to add your own batteries. I found these types of non-rechargeable headphones not dependable because you’d be enjoying your tunes on a road trip and suddenly the batteries would die — if you hadn’t pre-purchased and pre-packed extra batteries, you were hosed. And I don’t think the environment needs to be poisoned with extra throw-away batteries just so I can catch up with the latest audiobook.

    These Marshall headphones on the other hand are over-ear headphones that are rechargeable — the built-in battery allows for a playlist-friendly 30+ hours of listening pleasure per charge. Moreover, I maintained wireless connectivity up to about 30’ from my iPad, which means I can move around the house from room to room without losing signal. Finally, the aptX Bluetooth audio quality is good enough that it makes me forget I’m on a wireless connection.

    So from a pure sonic freedom standpoint, these headphones are already winners in my book, but there’s more.

    WHAT’S INCLUDED

    In the box you get:

    * Headphones
    * Cloth carrying bag
    * 3.5mm to 3.5mm headphone cable with built-in remote and microphone
    * USB to micro-USB charging cable
    * User manual

    FIT AND FINISH

    I found the fit of these headphones to be about just right — they were snug enough to help isolate ambient noise and keep the headphones firmly attached to my head, even when actively playing air guitar while rocking out, yet not too tight to cause listening fatigue. I found the headphones to be lightweight and with enough ear cushion padding to allow for hours of solid use.

    One con: these are over-ear headphones, but the ear cavity was not generous in size — the fit around my ear was barely adequate. In fact, if the ear hole opening was any smaller it would almost be an on-ear design. I have medium-sized ears, so just keep that in mind. That said, the ear cushions themselves are easily removed by simply lifting off the ear cushion, as they are held in place with magnets. This makes replacing the ear cushion a convenient task, though I don’t expect to need to do so for quite a while.

    Overall though, there is a nice attention to detail in the design and construction of the headphones. The design embodies the classic Marshall style and the leather headband trim and brass accents speak to a quality design — they even embossed “Long Live Rock N’ Roll” under each ear cushion.

    USE

    The headphones come stylistically packaged, reminiscent of an Apple design, except in Marshall black and with a bit more attitude. The headphone look is mostly a combination of black vinyl with white Marshall logo lettering, and brass accents throughout. In the hand, the headphones feel solid — not too heavy, yet robust via their metal frame, metal hinges, and leather headband detailing.

    The headphones charge via the micro-USB socket — you can use the included micro-USB cable or a separate charging brick, say one you might have from an old phone. An LED lights up your status.

    Syncing the headphones to my iPad was an easy process, and the Bluetooth scan was initiated by the headphone’s brass control knob. This control knob is like a multi-direction, multi-function mini-joystick — it allows you to turn the headphones on/off, answer incoming phone calls, play or navigate through songs, adjust the volume, and initiate Bluetooth pairing.

    For example, you can increase the volume by clicking the knob up, you can skip to the next song by clicking the knob to the right, and you can pause the song by pressing the knob down. These directions may seem strange, since up/down and left/right depend on the angle the headphones are placed on one’s head, but after a few tries, the use of the control knob becomes intuitive.

    The knob itself is brass, and this gives a feeling of durability and style to the interface. After pairing the headphones for the first time, I did have to turn the headphones off and on again before the volume controls became functional, though I’ve had no problems with the control knob since.

    You can also field voice calls while wearing the headphones via the microphone built-in to the headphones, and you can accept, reject, or end a call via the control knob.

    When you are finished using the headphones, they compress to a small form factor and fit easily into the included carrying pouch.

    SOUND

    I realize what sounds “good” is somewhat subjective, especially dependent on the person listening and what they are listening to. For me, I have multiple use cases, and so I want a more general pair of headphones rather than something engineered for one specific type of audio. These headphone’s 20Hz–20kHz frequency response has a mid-frequency scoop, which sounds clean and quite nice to me, especially when listening to rock, blues, audiobooks, and podcasts.

    However, if you prefer more bass-heavy audio — in fact some rock tunes may sound like they are missing some thump — then you may find these headphones lacking in the low end. So, I’d say that if you want a more general sound profile that especially sounds good for vocal tracks and you don’t mind not feeling the bass in your bones, then these are a definitely headphones to try.

    These headphones also allow you to share what you are listening to with a friend via the 3.5mm I/O jack and included cable. In fact, if you can even use the headphones with a device that does not have Bluetooth using this cable, by attaching the cable directly to the device’s headphone jack and talking using the cable’s included mic and remote. Or you can otherwise just listen to audio in a wired fashion with the cable, in case you just get tired of being free to roam around in sonic bliss.

    BATTERY

    A long-life battery is also what helps make these headphones such a joy to use — listening time is rated at about 30+ hours, which means you get several days worth of using them, which is a lifesaver when on travel when far from a charging outlet. There’s also some smarts built into the unit’s power management circuit, as the headphones will turn themselves off after 10 minutes if not connected to a sound source, which helps extend battery life.

    CONCLUSION

    All in all these are a solid pair of headphones. The killer features for me include long wireless range, good wireless audio quality, snug fit, long battery life, and an overall tasteful design and style. The features that may cause these headphones not to work for you include the size of the ear cushions and the frequency response audio profile — especially for the price, you want your headphones to fit comfortably on your head and you want them to sound good for the type of audio you listen to.

    For me, these headphones fit great, sound good for music, and sound especially great for audiobooks, podcasts, and conference and phone calls. Though these headphones might not work for you if you have to have that bass boost, the audio profile of these headphones works well for me since I listen to a variety of audio types, especially voice.

    In fact, I may have to pick up another pair, since my wife found mine and now I have a hard time getting them back.

    Thanks for reading and I hope you found this review helpful!

    Dopo diverse cuffie provate (tra cui anche senheizer) ho apprezzato questa marshall soprattutto per la comodità. Le porti per diverso tempo senza sudare l’orecchio, anche se hanno il loro bel peso. Ma si distribuisce bene sulla testa e sull’orecchio. Comodossimo l’unico “joystick” per controllare volume, tracce e play/pause che ti permette di usarlo anche con i guanti. Inoltre ha 2 pulsanti aggiuntivi ben accessibile multifunzione. Uno lo uso per il toggle con l’ascolto ambientale. In pratica mette in pausa il brano e attiva i microfoni così non devi togliere le cuffie per sentire i rumori ambientali. L’app a corredo è ben fatta anche se l’equalizzazione personalizzata non fa un gran lavoro. Bilancia le frequenze senza enfatizzare nulla. Se aggiungi bassi, è come se togliesse medi e alti per bilanciare. Non ottimale… Il volume di ascolto è buono. Più alto rispetto alla media delle cuffie di questa fascia. Il suono è bilanciato, molto dettagliato, soprattutto per voci, chitarre e alti. Il basso non si “sente” sull’orecchio fisicamente, come avviene su cuffie come le beats. MA è presente e bilanciato. E’ fatta per chi ama un suono pulitissimo, dettagliatissimo ma senza eccessivi bassi. Fatta soprattutto per musica rock, ma io ascolto un po di tutto ed è apprezzabile su ogni tipologia. E poi l’estetica… che dire! Certo, non è fatta per i più giovani, è una cuffia da “papà”, quale sono io! Altre info: L’ANC funziona bene e si può modificarne le impostazioni dall’app. Ha il jack cuffia (fondamentale, così la si può usare anche al pc), il ritardo del bluetooth è accettabile ma si vedono i video sul cellulare senza ritardi percettibili. Si ricarica tramite usb-c. La stella in meno è solo relativa al fatto che l’equalizzatore dell’app non fa un gran lavoro e avrebbero potuto darci un pizzico di bassi in più da poter gestire. Meglio usare i loro preset. Ma nel complesso: TOP!

    I was a bit skeptical when I first tried ordered these headphones, but after some testing, I truly believe that these are the only $300+ bluetooth headphones that are worth the price.

    PROS (and there are many)
    +Sound quality is perfect. As usual, Marshall doesn’t disappoint. Music is punchy and immersive. Textures in the music and instruments are also very clear. Great listening experience overall.
    +ANC is better than most. Cancels out a majority of fans and outdoor noises when I work. After testing a variety of different ANC headphones, I would say the Marshalls lose out only to the Bose NC700 and Sony WH1000xm3.
    +Build quality is excellent. The hard plastics, metal, and faux leather construction make for a durable and premium feeling device. The faux leather, although nowhere as nice as genuine leather, is still very soft and offers plenty of padding.
    +Design is phenomenal. I would usually lump design in together with build quality, but the design on these is so overwhelmingly brilliant that I had to speak on it separately. There are several elements that make the design of these so great. 1st, they are slim and offer a low profile look while wearing them. 2nd, these headphones fold up in just about every imaginable way. Depending on how you want to store them, you can fold them up similar to how Beats fold up, or how the WH1000xm3’s fold up, or the ATH50mx, or… you get my point. 3rd, The button placement on these are exactly where they need to be. Although some other headphones have very nice touch controls, Marshall chose to keep their knob control which works as well as, if not better than any touch controls that I’ve tested. The knob works well and intuitively- up and down for volume, forward and backward for skip/reverse, and press and long press for play/pause and on/off. In addition, the ANC and multi-function buttons are placed on either side of the cups exactly where the headband connects to the earcups. When touching your headphones, they line up exactly where your thumbs would be.
    +The app is another aspect of this headphone not only works, but exceeded my expectations. Just like other companion apps, they have a battery indicator and offer some customization buttons. However, Marshall’s app takes it a step further and offers full ANC/ambient sound customization. Using the app, ANC and ambient sound’s effectiveness can be toggled from 0%-100%. The app also allows the user to assign different functionality to the multi-function button, toggling between the equalizer, Google assistant, or your device’s native voice assistant. If you choose to set the multi-function button to equalizer, you will be able to toggle through 3 different sound settings, 1 preset Marshall tuning, and 2 other optional presets that can also be tuned with a full eq.
    +Comfort on the Monitor ANC II’s is also spectacular. The earcups cover my ears completely with a relatively loose clamping force. This causes less pressure on the sides of my head compared to many other headphones. However, this looser clamping force does not negatively impact the seal or the stability of these headphones. They sit well on the head even when looking down or jumping up and down. The headband padding is also very thick and soft, with no pain after 5 hours of continuous use.
    +Battery is top of the line. With ANC on full and the volume at around 70%, I was able to get 18 hours from 100% to 50% battery. I have no doubt that these headphones will be able to meet the 30 hrs that Marshall has listed. Additionally, due to the USB C charging port on these headphones, fast charging will fully charge the battery in about 2 hours.
    +The 3.5mm audio cable that comes is the box is top notch in terms of quality and length.
    +Like most other ANC headphones at this price, the Monitor II’s feature multipoint, allowing it to connect to two devices at a time, for all you multitaskers out there.
    +Bluetooth connection is very good and stable. Setting my phone down at the corner of my house, I was able to walk all throughout my two story house, through walls and floors, without losing connection or experiencing crackling. This was a feat, few headphones were able to achieve.
    +Microphone works great. Testing these with discord’s playback testing feature, my voice came in loud and clear. Some other reviewers have complained about a lack of microphone in wired mode, but rest assured that is not true. While the 3.5mm cable that comes in the box does not have a microphone, the mics in the headphones will still work during wired mode, whether the headphones are on or off.

    CONS (and these are small nitpicks)
    -Long press time it takes to power on the headphones is approximately 5 seconds, which is a bit too long for me, especially when considering powering off only takes a 2 second long press.
    -No hard case. This is quite a bummer, considering how well these were designed. I would have loved to see what Marshall could have done with a case design. That being said, due to the variety of ways the Monitor II can be folded, just about any case available should fit these headphones.
    -Coming in at 320 grams, the Monitor II’s are a bit heavier than much of the competition. However, after hours of testing, I can safely say that I have experienced no neck pain.
    -No sensors in the earcups, so you’ll have to manually pause the music when you take them off (feature has been a bit buggy on other headphones I have tested anyways, and for many of those, I would end up having to pause them on my own just to make sure they were actually paused)

    I simply cannot praise these headphones enough. While there are some areas where other headphones score higher (sound quality:MW65, Beoplay H9i, B&W PX7 and ANC: WH1000xm3, Bose NC700), no other pair of headphones offer such a complete set of features that all work exceptionally while still offering a decent price.

    Sound is good (not excellent) and the fit is good as well. It goes closely and tightly around the head (unlike other headphone that I own that protracts too much outward). Battery is good as well.

    However, don’t expect this headphone to connect to two devices and switch automatically. It connects to my Samsung Note 10+ and will fail to connect to my laptop running on Windows 10 (unlike my Sennhensier or Sony).

    La cuffia è fatta molto bene ed adempie egregiamente alla sua funzione con una riproduzione audio ottima!
    Anche la durata della batteria, cun il volume impostato al 60% e con l’attenuatore di rumore disinserito, è quella indicata dal produttore, anzi un paio d’ore in più. Io l’ho presa per collegarla via Bluetooth al computer e il PC l’ha vista immediatamente, senza alcun problema, ma…… ho provato, dopo alcuni giorni, a collegarla al mio smartphone (Xiaomi) e a quello di mia moglie (Samsung S21) e non c’è stato verso di farlo, i due telefoni proprio non la vedono!
    Se l’avessi acquistata per usarla con i telefoni avrei dovuto restituirla.
