Major II Bluetooth April 25 2016

Like their wired cousins, the Major II Bluetooth pack in 40mm drivers that Marshall says are “tuned for excellent bass response, smooth mids and sizzling highs.” A collapsible design makes them easy to toss into a backpack to take with you when you’re on the go.

As evidenced by the name, these headphones connect via Bluetooth and use aptX to offer CD-quality playback and minimal audio/video sync issues when watching video. If you have a high-res music player or would just rather plug in, the headphones also offer a 3.5 mm jack and a removable coiled cable featuring a built-in mic and remote. The 3.5mm jack can also be used to share music with someone else when listening wirelessly.

One advantage these headphones seem to have comes in the area of battery life. While many Bluetooth headphones can struggle to hit the 20-hour mark, Marshall says the Major II Bluetooth offers up to 30 hours of playback time on a single charge, more than enough to last through a week of moderate listening.
