    Anyone have any experience with the marshall majors in terms of sound quality? I'm a guitar fan, and am looking for some new headphones (not really for guitar playing, but it would be a nice capability) In terms of music, I listen to all kinds of stuff from blues, rock, indie, electronic etc. With the price at $89 shipped on amazon, they're looking tempting.

    I've been using the standard iPhone earbuds for years, but the best portable headphones I've listened to are the Sennheiser HD-25 II's, but they are way out of my price range.
    Thanks for any help!

    What is your price range? Is portability your main concern?

    I don't like ANY "on ear" headphones. No matter who makes them. I use the full size studio type headphones, or earbuds if I'm outdoors walking the dog or at the gym.

    The on-ear type compromise the sound and are I think, are not comfortable.

    The first question when buying headphones is "what is the listening environment?" and "how will they be used?"

    Budget is about $90. Portability is a concern, as is style to a degree (irrelevant in terms of SQ, but I dig the look of the marshalls a lot)

    The listening environment is really any time I can't use my speakers, so most likely in transit, at home etc. Nothing professional, just casual listening.
