I just have to say, I really enjoyed reviewing these Marshall Headphones. (I felt sad when they had to go back inside their boxes.)
On to the review!

Loving the earth-friendly, Muji-ish packaging.
UN-BOXING THE MARSHALL MINOR
RANDOM THOUGHTS – Marshall Major
Initially I wasn’t so impressed with the sound quality of Marshall Major.
I tested it first with a random J-Pop song and I found the clarity so-so. But when I played a House/Trance track… BOOM! I was blown-away!
The bass of the Marshall Major is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
With regards to comfort, the cushions are super soft. I could listen to music with these headphones for hours!
RANDOM THOUGHTS – Marshall Minor
The Marshall Minor earphones is a fascinating little thing!
Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing bad about the Minor. I just found it a little… different from most earphones.
The ear pieces of the Marshall Minor boggled me a little bit. Unlike most earphones that you stick all the way inside your ear, the Marshall Minor earphones is worn by placing it on your ear. Using the tiny, tiny latch (EarClicks), the Minor simply hangs on your outer ear.
Seriously, it’s just hanging right there on your ear! It felt soooo weird wearing it. This is definitely NOT the earphone to use when you go running or working out at the gym as it could fly off when you shake your head. (But the good thing is, no painful ears after long use!)
I guess that’s one way of saying that this earphone is used ONLY for sitting down and simply savoring music.
When it comes to sound quality, there wasn’t any doubt – the quality is very, very good. Surprisingly, it delivered a full sound! (Thought it was going to sound airy.)
In my opinion, it is much better when it came to clarity compared to the Major, but the bass is at par (maybe a bit less, just a tiny bit!) with the Major.
GEEK GIRL’S VERDICT
If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for an audiophile, these Marshall headphones and earphones are a good gift idea!
A bit on the pricey side but I assure you, your significant other/friend/family will love you for it!
