When you’ve got legitimate rock-sound credentials, why wouldn’t you make headphones? Right? To that end, Marshall is back with a new pair — called Monitor — to sit at the top of its existing range. Players in the current market seem to have found the sweet spot between premium pricing and street credibility, and there’s no change here. Priced at $200, the Monitor is pit against other sets that mix style-consciousness with claims of quality audio. It’s not all about looks, though: the Monitor sports a proprietary “F.T.F” (Felt Treble Filter) system that lets you change the sound for a different high-end response.
Under the hood is a 40mm driver, and the same gold, black and leather stylings we saw on the Major model. This time, however, Marshall opted for an over-ear fit, and threw in a few other goodies too. These include the increasingly popular 3.5mm pass-through jack (so friends can plug in and share your music), a collapsible design, a detachable part-coiled cable and in-line remote. The Monitor is available starting today for the aforementioned $200. But, if you want to know a little more, we got our hands on a set — head past the break for our first impressions.
