    Marshall? Are you serious?

    As someone who plays a little guitar, I wonder if these earphones have quality issues that plague all modern Marshall amps? The Marshall name isn't what it used to be, and neither are their amplifiers.

    Marshall is still decent

    I'm a Mesa Boogie man myself, but Marshall amps remain quality instruments although not the Marshall of old.

    The marketing slogan for these headphones should be something like: If our stacks haven't ruined your ears yet, try these.

    Yawn...

    They're headphones. Wow, the excitement. Welcome to the 20th century Marshall. Nothing better than listening to quality 128mbs MP3s and AAC files through high-quality headphones!
