The heavy sound of Marshall has been carried over the world for nearly 50 years. Breathless roadies and roaring trucks have worked hard to make Marshall heard all across the globe. The success story of Marshall Headphones is constantly being written as the brand continues to grow, and new products are being launched each year.
Based on the signature of Jim Marshall, the Marshall script is one of the world’s most recognizable symbols. Since half a century back, Marshall has been the major name in guitar amplifiers and has subsequently acted as a backdrop to an immense number of artists, from the local heroes to the arena rock giants. Marshall amps even cameo in the legendary rockumentary Spinal Tap, where the featured band has custom equipment that can be turned up to 11, rather than just ten.
The iconic heritage of Marshall was a natural fit for headphones. With the amplifier being a rather expensive outfit, and only for those blessed with the ability to handle a guitar. Because Marshall expanded to headphones, the brand became accessible for anyone to enjoy music, widening the audience to nearly everyone in the world.
Marshall Headphones is Zound Industries’ premier licensed brand, and although it is a license, it is treated with as much care and thought as one of the company’s house brands. Working closely with Marshall Amplification, several products have been created to authentically represent everything that Marshall stands for. Even without the logo, the headphones and speaker line embody the brand. The greatest effort has been put into the aesthetics of these products, making sure they ooze that iconic Marshall look.
When Marshall Headphones launched in October 2010, over 1,000 headphones were purchased from the online store in the first week alone. Today hundreds of thousands of headphones have been sold to consumers worldwide and through Zound Industries’ vast network of sales agents and distributors. With the introduction of the Hanwell speaker, Zound Industries is poised to take Marshall to the next level of home audio entertainment.
