Audio | Marshall Headphones
I’ve not yet heard them myself, but as something of an audiophile I fully intend on seeking these out, if not purchasing them outright. I recently switched from a $500 pair of Shure SE535Earbuds that sounded really full and vibrant, but after three years the cord shorted out. Rather than get a replacement, I re-entered the audio market to see what was out. One of the sets of cans I was most impressed with was the Monster Beats by Dr. Dre. They had some lucious low end that made my liver quiver, but aesthetically they looked like I was some college kid spinning the new L’il Wayne single. Plus, I don’t listen to too much bass-heavy hip hop.
When I saw these Marshall Overear headphones, I was super excited. The notoriously loud and growling English amp producer is bringing the cans. They look marvelous and have a thick frequency response range of 20 ~ 20kHz. They’re only $99 bucks too.
(By the way, I went with a pair of Klipsch Image S4 earbuds to replace my Shures. They also cost about $100. The construction quality is pretty flimsy, but they sound amazing and have a relatively rugged metal case to protect their wimpy cords. For about $400 less, they sound sonically comparable to the Shures.)
