They told you in preschool — don’t stick things in your ears. You dutiful souls who still heed that warning have a new over-ear headphone set for your listening pleasure. And it’s a pretty good set at that. With the Major III you can listen to thirty hours of music on a single charge, delivered wirelessly via Bluetooth aptX technology. Custom tuned 40mm drivers produce rich bass, a smooth midrange, and clear high-tones.
Since your phone is most likely who’s on DJ duty, the Major III has a multi-directional control knob that not only lets you control the volume and play/pause your music, it also lets you answer and end any calls that come through.
The look is that of a classic pair of vintage headphones, but the ear cushions, hinges and headband have all been improved and updated for a better fit, which will no doubt lead to longer listening. Maybe even the whole thirty hours straight. – $149
