The Marshall Monitor II A.N.C. Headphones have advanced active noise cancelling technology blocks out the noise, letting you focus on what matters most – the music. Engineered for an all-day listening experience, they boast up to 30 hours of wireless playtime with active noise cancelling and up to 45 hours without, meaning you’ll never miss a beat.
As you can tell, these are the second version of the Mashall over-ear headphones. The big addition is the Active Noise Cancelling. There is a USB-C charging cable included as well, but no wireless charging.
The battery life has had a massive boost as well. Giving listeners a humungous 30 hours of battery, with quick-charge capability. I was able to charge these for 15 minutes and managed to get around 17 hours of play.

These look great, I can’t think of another way to say it. They stick with the Marshall look that has flowed through each iteration of their headphones. There’s a texture to the faux leather headband, while the earcups are flat and feature a striking Marshall logo. The multi-directional knob offers a splash of gold to the look, and also a retro way to control your music. These are incredibly light, but there haven’t been any sacrifices made to the materials used.
With the multi-directional control knob you can play, pause, skip and adjust the volume of your device, as well as power your headphones on or off. You can also answer and end calls.
These do a great job at blocking out higher frequencies, and even blocked out a train passing by, which I was impressed with. Bass has a good amount of body to it, but not too overpowering. Mids were great too, but I was a little let down by the highs. Things like cymbals sounded far away. But, there is the Marshall app which can tweak the EQ and I was able to solve that problem.
These utilise advanced active noise cancelling technology that continuously pinpoints and measures ambient noise to block out the things you don’t want to hear. Delivering high performance sound like you’ve never heard before. They feature custom-tuned 40 mm dynamic drivers that produce a superior signature sound only Marshall can deliver.
