Thy Marshall Majors are about to go on sale tomorrow for 99€ and we were thinking… should we get a pair of headphones manufactured by “Zound industries“… the same people who produce those for for H&M or Hello Kitty….?
Despite being designed in Stockholm (where Zound are from) they’re manufactured in China just like most (which doesn’t really bother us), so we thought that maybe a pair of Audio-Technica, Sennheiser or even Grado would suit you better for the same price tag. Ok, it might not say “Marshall” and won’t be a limited edition, but they may also sound better.
Anyway, what we’re really liking (which didn’t get much hype the last time Marshall Headphones were announced) are their “Minor” model. An in-ear model that seems to secure into your ear with a patented system they’ve called “EarClick”, and that we’re dying to get our hands on.
Btw… there’s a launch party on December 11th at the ACE Hotel in New York. They won’t give them for free… but they might raffle a couple. More info on their website (oh and as the manufacturers of the Minor are ZoundIndustries you may be able to buy the same product without the “Marshall” brand slightly cheaper on their homepage!!!)
