In short, it sucks
In short, they're the best earphone in this millenium.
I bought these a week ago, the design is nice and they seem to stay in my ears well, they do become uncomfortable though and I have noticed some distortion with the sound, my old regular iPhone headphones sounded better, with more bass and clearer sound. I would only recommend these to people who are sick of their headphones falling out, I am a little disappointed and expected more from such a well established company..
I actually prefer no noise isolation. I like to hear surrounding traffic and conversations and such. Even walking with noise isolation headphones feels weird to me. I have another pair of earphones for occasional noise isolation use, but I personally quite rarely need those. I see it as a matter of choice rather than "the worst issue".
Hi, Tero. I'm with you on prefering noise isolation. What other headphones have you used?
Hi Inswinger. I used Urbanears Medis first, but after the plug broke from it and the also the warranty replacement, I am trying if Marshall would be more durable. They are likely exactly the same phones, but at least the plug feels sturdier in Marshall. I am also using Marshall Majors. They were smaller though than I expected. I also have some cheap isolating in-ear plugs that I don't like very much.
Thanks for the reviews guys. I am glad to have come to this website as I am supposed to grab one of this earphones.
I just purchased a Marshall Minor while on holiday in Hong Kong. I live inDubai, so I can't take it back to the store. Problem is the 3-clicks to goback one song on the in-line remotedoes not work. I am using it with my Samsung Galaxy Note II. Any one else have similar problems with the in-line remote?
I think I know 1 problem with uor fittng that many does the rouded side on the litle buds should be uotwards. Not like you have it on your secont picture in page 2.
durability is not something these earphones have going for them. I'm on my second pair in 1 year, and my current pair just stopped working last week. The left side konked out, because of the flimsy jack. If you're a commuter who likes their music device in their pocket, I can't recommend these for you as far as durability goes.. I have a friend on his third pair. Personally will go with Shure SE215, I hear those are good albeit twice the price.
I happen to have both the minors and the 215! 215 sounds better, but only when I lay in bed, motionless! Canalfit is not for the road. The minors slightly less sound quality, but the perfect match for my bikerides.
no, it is a bit tricky to do lol
i have 1, and i used to be a sales of marshall products, some of my costumers said 3 clicks not working, it just a bit tricky to do.
I know this is late but I own these and I would like to say something about the tonal depth.
The frequency range is impressive, me being able to hear as low as 35Hz at normal volume, all the way up to about 18kHz. Severe warbling is audible at 18-24kHz on a tone sweep with a huge bump at about 3kHz and 80-100Hz. Even at max volume through an amplifier I can't hear past 30Hz.
So it isn't at all flat, but it's pretty well tuned for most types of music.
