The Major IV Is Marshall’s First Wireless-Charging Headphone Model

Though Marshall Amplification was founded in the early ‘60s, it didn’t unveil its first headphone models until 2010 with the original Major and Minor series. In the decade that’s followed, Marshall has continuously refined its personable audio range as the sector evolves, though in an effort to remain at the technological forefront of the industry, the company has now launched its first-ever pair of headphones with wireless charging capabilities in the all-new Marshall Major IV.

Weighing less than 6oz, the fourth-gen Major headphones feature a collapsible design with a brass-style multidirectional control knob, the latest Bluetooth technology, an improved ergonomic ear cushion design, and the British brand’s “Signature Sound,” all while retaining Marshall’s distinctive and iconic industrial design language. The Major IV’s sound comes from a pair of 40mm dynamic drivers with a 99dB sensitivity and a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency range. The most noteworthy element on this new model, however, is undeniably its battery setup. Capable of receiving wireless Qi-style charging, the Major IV’s Lithium-ion cell affords 80 or more hours of wireless playback time, and can receive 15-hours of playback time via only 15 minutes of charging. Available now, the Marshall Major IV Wireless Headphones are priced at $149.
