About this deal

With light, soft memory foam lining the earcups and underside of the headband, comfort levels are superb. Play, pause and shuffle your music, adjust the volume of your device and control phone functionality with the controll knob whilst the multi-function M-button lets you switch between three equaliser presets or alternatively, access your voice assistant on-the-go. Using the Voice Memos app on an iPhone 6s, both mics allowed us to understand every word we recorded, but the wired mic was far clearer, with fewer audio artifacts than the built-in one.

Bluetooth doesn't have a major impact on the sound of headphones, except that of course it means the amps are internal, and the headphones may be tuned through DSP as well as through physical alterations. Yet, with the Monitor II being almost three years old, with no actual technological upgrades to the Diamond Jubilee Edition headphones - do the Marshall Monitor IIs stand up to this year's headphones competition? And then, in come the midrange vocals with Lindsay Buckingham's calm, soft tone backed by both Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks, lulling you into a blissful, melodic groove that's never sounded better.My favorites were the super lightweight and comfortable Bose QC35 for a couple of years, but I was sent a review unit of the Marshall Monitor II ANC two years ago and I haven’t looked back since. While there are reasons to like the Marshall Monitor II ANC headphones, it lacks some truly premium features that other top headphones have such as support for high quality Bluetooth codecs. Maybe I will put some heavy "mileage" on these (once we're all able to leave the house) and see how they fare.

In the event you forget to recharge the headphones or if you want to connect to an inflight entertainment system or some other non-Bluetooth device, there’s also an analog cable. It's not necessarily uncomfortable, because there's generous cushioning in both the earpads and the headband, but the actual earcups do feel smaller than most circumaural pairs we test. Using the Marshall app, you can adjust the level of noise cancelling, as well as the transparency level (how much noise you allow to enter through the earcups), using sliders that go from 0 to 100%. If you want some of the premium feel of the Monitor II ANC, but with better ANC and codecs, check out the Sennheiser MOMENTUM 4 Wireless. I don't have M4U 2s (loaned my pair to another reviewer, and I can't remember who) but they are notoriously un-durable.They’re an over-the-ear design that employs 40mm drivers and can be connected to your phone wirelessly via Bluetooth or the provided 3. That's with noise cancellation switched on, too – turn it off and Marshall says you'll get 45 hours of wireless playback. As for its connectivity, Marshall, in its infinite wisdom, has given users the option to use both wireless headphone functionality with Bluetooth 5. For extra peace of mind, they come with a denim carrying pouch; it won’t offer the protection of a hard case but it should save your cans from scratches, and it looks really cool, too. In the same way, Nils Lofgren’s Keith Don’t Go is replete with ambient detail; you might not like the yells and whooping of the crowd in the background but they’re certainly easy to pick out.
