For beat-heavy, dance-oriented music lovers - we couldn't think of a better tune to test the mettle of the Monitor IIs with than Faithless's iconic 'We Come 1'. Emma Boyle is TechRadar’s ex-Gaming Editor, and is now a content developer and freelance journalist. With this single control, you get a dedicated button direction for volume up, volume down, and track navigation, rather than having to tap things multiple times or hold them in for long periods (the volume controls work in conjunction with your mobile device's master volume levels). Advanced active noise cancelling technology blocks out the noise, letting you focus on what matters most – the music. Ultimately, though, it’s the slightly below-par noise cancelling that undermines these headphones’ charge to the top.

This is an inconvenient oversight, particularly as the control knob on the headphones themselves doesn't work when they're out of battery. 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. The entire look is matte, though there are various materials in play here—faux leather, aluminum, brass, and the added touch of a coiled audio cable running from each earcup to the headband—a design flourish that lends the headphones a retro-cool feel.

We’d have liked the soundstage to feel wider – they don’t exactly feel closed off, but some tracks demand more space to let the instrumentation ‘breathe’. Gone are the shining bronze knobs, and the blindingly bright white Marshall logo - the 60th anniversary Diamond Jubilee collection adopts a far more covert, subtle and minimalistic design - controversial as that may be amongst Marshall fans. If you opt to turn off active noise canceling you can squeeze another 15 hours out of these if you need it. You get the minimal, all-black colorway complete with a gold accent on the control knob and the white logo on the side of each ear cup. The trade-off, however, is just how much power a pair of headphones can pack in compared to earbuds, as well as that truer soundscape that makes all the difference when listening to your favourite music.More frustrating than this, though, was the pressure on the temples that appeared without fail after a few hours of wear. The guitar strumming also benefits from the sculpting in the higher frequencies—its attack is bright and sharp. Featuring custom-tuned 40 mm dynamic drivers, these headphones produce a superior signature sound only Marshall can deliver. A sturdy foldable design, excellent controls, a comfy fit, customisable noise cancelling and great all-round sound performance are sure to make these cans a big hit. The range maxes out at about 10m though so as long as you keep within that range you shouldn’t have too many issues.
