  • Fantastic ideas, poor execution.
    Reviewed by Bren - August 23, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have to say that my general feeling when it comes to the Marshall headphones is disappointment. While these headphones have some real charm, they lack the core areas of importance that true music fans desire. A pros and cons list will be most helpful here: Pros: -Good looks. The gold 'M' on the earbuds and the control toggle along with the muted textures on the control stem itself. -Comes with a charging cable. And not just any old USB micro cable, but a pretty classy looking one at that. -Fun factor. All of the operating noises for turning it on, skipping a song, etc. are different little electric guitar noises like muted strums and such which is really fun and was quite a surprise. -The control toggle. It takes a bit of getting used to, but I found that this toggle was a cool way to control the experience and was intuitive once I got used to it. Cons: -Poor audio quality. The bass, and treble are both lacking in these headphones and the audio experience is really not there for this price range. I would forgive thirty dollar headphones of this, but not ones costing thrice as much. -There is minimal customization for the fit of the headphones for different ear types. They employ a system with these where you push or pull more of the cable out of the earbud, but this really made almost no difference for my ear shape and size. YMMV, but i think that having included some different ear bud adapters would have been a far more prudent step in making this enjoyable for a wider variety of users. I think that in going for elegance with this method, they skipped out on what is practical. -Intermittent connectivity issues. Perhaps I have just been spoiled with Apple W2 devices like Airpods and Beats headphones, but I found that I was experiencing stutters and skips in the bluetooth connection while walking around with my phone in my pocket (thus eliminating distance as an issue). Overall, I would say that if you are faithful to Marshall as a brand or just enjoy the quirkiness of something different, these are not a bad buy. But if audio experience and customizability are important to you, I would pass these by.

  • Not good enough
    Reviewed by JonB - August 29, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted to get a decent amount of use out of the headphones before submitting my review. After having owned previous devices, I'm actually disappointed with the earbud design entirely. There are certain aspects of the design which I find so puzzling. For example, why wouldn't they make the ear tips replaceable? Or why wouldn't they make the ear tips noise canceling so that the user could get better noise isolation? Expect to turn your volume all the way up in noisy settings. My first impression of the Marshall - Minor II Bluetooth Wireless In-Ear Headphones is "Meh". PROS: Bluetooth 5.0 Adjustable loop/Stability "fin Single control unit/knob design

  • Great sound but not the most comfortable
    Reviewed by Porsche - August 22, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Marshall Minor II In-Ear Headphones is another Marshall product aimed at the regular consumer, rather than rock guitar players. The headphones are light and have that classic Marshall look to them, including the logo. The sound is clear and detailed, with plenty of volume, which from experience, tends to be a problem with Bluetooth headphones. The bass is more neutral than many other headphones, which in my book, is a positive, not a negative. They’re advertised to last about 12 hours, and have a quick charge feature, when time is of the essence. It takes two hours to fully charge the unit. My biggest negative is that the headphones are not particularly comfortable. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Buds, that I can barely feel when they’re in my ears, the Minors always make me aware that they’re there. There’s a slight pressure, that probably comes from the fact that there’s no cushion, just a hard rubber/plastic feel. The only way to adjust size is by pushing the cable through the unit, there’s no exchangeable rubber. I have small ears, so I did not find the cable-adjusting very helpful, I preferred it when the cable was just slightly extracted. This may be more useful if you have large ears. I will say that when it comes to the discomfort, it doesn’t get worse over time, but it doesn’t get better either. There’s a gold button that controls everything. Power, volume, next track etc. This works pretty well by pushing the button down, up, left, right. A USB cable is included, so all you need is a USB-port or a USB-charger. A manual with many languages is also included and is very informative. To sync it to your smartphone, you have to hold the button for five seconds. You have to do this when the unit is off, or else, you’ll just turn it off. You turn it on by holding it for three seconds, so all you have to do is hold it for another two. There’s no noise-cancellation, physically and digitally, so these may not be the best headphones for noisy environments. I’ve been looking for the perfect Bluetooth headphones for a while now. The Minor II headphones are close when it comes to the sound, but they’re just not comfortable enough in my ears to be worn daily. Perhaps the third generation will address that. That would make it a home run!

  • Great fit, good headphones
    Reviewed by AsiaLovely1 - August 21, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These headphones are very lightweight and nicely made. These headphones are the best fitting headphones in the ear that I've ever tried. I usually have a hard time finding a good fit, even with the different sized ear covers that come with some headphones. These do not come with any additional earbud covers and they are not needed. You adjust the headphones with the cord provided to fit your ear. Once I was finally able to get them connected, the sound quality is very very good clear, and with no delays that you sometimes experience with Bluetooth headphones. They are also very lightweight and you really don't even realize they're there. Overall good quality.

  • Great for Music! Not as good for calls.
    Reviewed by hotice - August 23, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] If you're a rock star or you wish you were a rock star you should probably just buy The Minor II now! Not only are they Marshall branded but they play good sounding guitar riffs every time you turn them off and on. It's pretty cool at first and I haven't found it to be annoying yet. The sound quality of the Minor II is excellent! Whether watching a movie with action happening all around you or listening to crisp stringed instruments or heavy drumming and electric guitars all sounds come through full and clear. I was impressed with highs and lows. Not only could I hear low drumming very well but there was one song that had sounds in it I never heard before because, apparently, I hadn't listened to it with good enough sound equipment before. Those were high sounds and they were subtle but came through crisp and clearly. Vocals were always clear as well. I love the fit. I put them in and they twist into place nicely. The adjustment system is brilliant, using the cord that's there anyway instead engineering something else to move or break. I mean, everyone has different ears so these may not fit you no matter how you adjust them but they fit me very well with little adjustment. The fit is snug - there's no extra room in there, but it's comfortable even for wearing hours at a time. Of the 4 or so ear buds I've had over the years I like the fit of these best. I also actually like having them together on a cord. It's convenient to stick them together and wear it like a necklace instead of putting two separate buds in your pocket or something. I also like the way it pauses media. It worked for me with music and Netflix. And of course, you'll never loose one! The battery life is great. It's rated for 12 hours. I didn't test that in one shot but I got a lot of use over the course of 3 days before charging them again so to me that's very good. That's listening to media and at least a few hours on the phone. There were other times I used it a lot more than a few hours at a time and it just kept going. I also love the way you can see the battery life you have left on your smartphone - I guess because it's Bluetooth 5 and you probably need a newer smartphone. I was using them mostly with Android 9 but also on a Windows 10 PC. I was skeptical of the controls. In actual use I liked the knob and it worked well. The only issue I had was it didn't always turn on when I held down the button. Then I would try again and it would work. I think I was probably pressing at an angle instead of straight in when that happened but I'm not sure. It didn't bother me. There have to be some compromises to controls on all small devices and I like what they came up with for this. The only real disappointment I found was that they don't have noise cancellation. They don't advertise it but I figured all ear buds in this price range have that. It turns out I was wrong. That's why I gave it four stars. Don't get me wrong, the mic is great - but almost too good for not having noise cancellation. I was on a phone conference and everyone stopped talking at one point to hear a conversation going on in the room I was in which I wasn't even aware of. If you plan to only use these for phone calls, you may want to look for something else. On the other hand, if it's just you and there isn't background noise the person on the other end will hear you loud and clear and you'll hear them like they're next to you. If you're looking for earbuds to listen to music or other media and do some occasional calling, these are perfect!
