Marshall has revealed the latest version of its Major III on-ear headphones. Joining the brand's lineup of rock-and-roll-inspired wireless in-ear, on-ear, and over-ear headphones is the Major III Voice with Google Assistant support.
For just US$20 (RM84) more than the price of the Major III Bluetooth on-ear headphones, Marshall nearly doubled the wireless listening time to approximately 60 hours on a single charge and added the Google Assistant.
In terms of design, the biggest difference between the Major III Voice headphones and the standard Bluetooth rendition is the dedicated voice assistant button. By pressing and holding it, the wearer can ask the Google Assistant to play a particular playlist, read their text messages, or give them navigation instructions – all without having to take out their smartphone.
Like its sibling, the Major III Voice has Bluetooth connectivity with a 10m range and 40mm drivers.
The fit has been subtly modified with an updated headband, cushions, and slimmed-down hinges. Despite these changes, the headphones are still recognisably a part of the Major III line.
Marshall's new Major III Voice headphones are available to order today for US$169.99 (RM711.88) and will begin shipping on Oct 16. – AFP Relaxnews
