Marshall hits 50 years, launches Major 50 FX headphones


Marshall celebrates its 50th anniversary with the Major 50 FX—the company’s newest iteration of the Marshall Major headphones.

The limited edition Marshall Major 50 FX carries the fret detailing used in Marshall’s anniversary line of amps in the inner ear caps. However, unlike the outer ear caps of the original Marshall Major , which are outlined in black, the outer ear caps of the Major 50 FX sport a gold lining.

The headband is made from the same material used for the outer covering of Marshall amps. The inner part of headband no longer carries Jim Marshall’s signature; instead, it reads EST. 1962 LONDON-ENGLAND.

The package is still the same. It still comes with a 6.3mm adapter so you can plug the headphones into your amp, a neutral stereo plug adapter so you can use it on older mobile phone models, and a built-in remote and microphone.

The Marshall Major 50 FX headphones is available at Astrovision, Automatic Center, Avant, Beyond The Box, Buzz, Complex, Digital Hub, Digital Walker, E-Central, Egghead, Electroworld, Futureworld, Gadgets in Style, Gui, iCenter, iGig, iStudio, Mobile 1, Republik, Power Hub, Power Mac Center, PC Hub, Switch, Technoholics, Urban Athletics, Spectra, Listening Room and Listen Up.
