2010: From the stage to the people – Marshall Headphones

It was in 2010 that Marshall took its first steps into the world of lifestyle products. Keen to introduce our famous sound, unparalleled wisdom, and dedicated manufacturing to a wider audience, we debuted a bold new venture that year – and have never looked back.

Marshall headphones and speakers inspired by the original amps.

Decades' worth of audio innovation on the stage were fine-tuned for home and on-the-go listening with the launch of Marshall Headphones. Our first on-ear headphone, the Marshall Major, featured the iconic white script logo, black vinyl covering, and heavy-duty hinges. It was designed to thrive on daily use and render music the way it was meant to sound (no matter what the flavour) – and was a hit from the outset. Thanks to a dedicated fanbase and our passion for creativity, we’ve been able to expand the Marshall Headphones product range exponentially in the years since.

“Breathless roadies and roaring trucks have worked hard to make Marshall heard all across the globe. Now, the time has come for you to carry this magnificent burden of rock 'n' roll all by yourself.”

Taking Marshall speakers on the road.

Our first home speaker, the Hanwell, followed in 2012, and we went portable with the Kilburn and Stockwell models three years later. In 2018, our first noise-cancelling headphones went on the market, and in 2020, we unveiled the Emberton portable speaker – which utilises True Stereophonic, multi-directional sound. In 2021, we introduced our most recent innovations. The Meet Mode II marked our first true wireless in-ear Bluetooth headphones, while the Motif ANC offered an active noise cancellation headphone capable of up to 20 hours of wireless playtime.

Marshall speakers for the home and on the move.

Our legacy of loud continues to broaden as more refined home audio and lifestyle products are added to the Marshall roster year on year. Where next? The sky’s the limit.
