When it comes to the latest tech gadgets I’m always keen to try out new lifestyle brands on the market as I get an exclusive sneak peak of Marshall Headphones Major III Bluetooth Headphones before their official release next week.
During the official London launch night yesterday evening at 180 The Strand it also marked the opening of the brands worldwide major solo Exhibition. It was so exclusive that no photo’s were allowed which was separate to the main event where social media could be used to Instagram footage of the event live.
Marshall Amplification is a British brand founded by Terry Marshall a successful drummer musician that has acclaimed music industry status for excellence that dates back as far as the nineteen sixties. Since the brands founding from its early days from a drum shop its established itself as the leading music brand in the world. So lets touch upon a bit about the company history where Marshall started designing and manufacturing music amplifiers, speaker cabinets, brands personal headphones and earphones.
The exhibition was a great way to get to know the history behind such an iconic brand as part of popular culture and the integral part that Marshall played in revolutionizing sound technology innovation for the music industry today. As we entered the exhibition I was greeted by a brand rep who then handed me a pair of headphones connected to a smart phone which had the exhibition in digital format to explain factual information on the brand.
Parts of the exhibition were divided in zones that related to the individual chapters on the smart phones helping to navigate you as you make your way round and observe the images and information to help gauge a better understanding of the brand and it’s purpose. There was even a chill out area if you happened to take a wonder and explore where you could test out the new Marshall Headphones, listen to music and relax away from the party if needed.
Lately, I have been attending some great music events connected to lifestyle brands as more and more are finding new ways to connect with their audience via live music sets and performances. For this evenings entertainment Marshall Headphones headlined with Alternative/Indie bands such as Black Honey and Goat Girl leading London’s Indie scene.
Whilst I was there I got an exclusive sneak peek of their new material too and according to The Guardian and NME they are the One’s to Watch on the emerging artist music scene so definitely check them out.
If you are thinking of getting your hands on a pair of headphones I suggest trying them out before you buy to convince yourself otherwise. You get 30 + hours of wireless playtime and tune out function with mid active noise cancelling which is a modern classic re-engineered . The major III model features 40 mm dynamic driver that are custom tuned for enhanced base, smooth mids and clear highs. All in all, I’d say the product is much more improved than the M2 and added comfort too.
