Marshall launches Major IV with substantial battery upgrades

Marshall launched the successor to its flagship headphone series this week, and it is all a music fanatic could imagine.

The music giant, Marshall, launched its latest series of headphones with claims that, if true, would make for an excellent personal music product to the market.

The Heritage Rock Company describes the latest addition to their headphone collection as “an improved ergonomic design,” among other things.

According to the specifications that people know so far, the Marshall Major IV picks up where the Marshall Major III left off.

What’s new on the newest Marshall headphone?

Major IV brings about a considerable increase in the battery department. Major III boasted a 60 hour of battery life, which was already impressive by the industry standards, but the Marshall Major IV takes things to another level.

According to a report by GSM Arena, the Major IV claims 80-hour battery life on a single charge. However, the addition of mind-blowing features in the battery department does not stop at the battery’s capacity. As per Tech Radar, the Major IV also supports fast charging.

Marshall claims that a 15-minute charge on the Major IV would give the user 15 hours of usage. Furthermore, Major IV supports wireless charging through its coil placed in the headset’s right ear cup.

However, the headphones don’t come with a wireless charger in the box. Users can still charge the headphones with a USB-C charging cable.

The Major IV supports wired cables via a 3.5mm jack, enabling the users to share their music with another headphone device.

Design appearance

Marshall did not change the design policy from Major III on the newest Major IV.

The headphones still come with a recognizable Marshall script, textured black surfaces, and the golden accents. It also collapses in a compact form like Major III.

The multi-functional knob makes a comeback on the new device. The said feature allows the user to play/pause music, skip tracks, take calls, and even adjust the volume.

However, in an Engadget report, the cushion pads come in a different shape, unlike the previous product, which allows a more comfortable fit.

Pricing and availability

The Major IV, like Major III, starts at USD 149 and is now available for pre-order via Marshall’s official website. The company will begin shipping the product starting from October 14, 2020.
