If you prioritize battery life and comfort for extended listening sessions with an over-ear design, the Marshall Major IV would likely be better, despite being more expensive. However, if you prefer a lightweight and portable in-ear option that may be more suited for active use and talking on the phone due to a built-in microphone, the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless could be the more suitable choice. If low latency for gaming or watching videos is important, the Razer earbuds may also have an edge due to their gaming mode feature designed to reduce lag. Give Feedback

Sound Guys

Jasper Lastoria | September 2023
"The Marshall Major IV shares quite a bit in common with its predecessor, but a key upgrade appears to be softer ear cushions. They make upgrading worth it. As a set of basic wired or wireless headphones the Major IV ticks most boxes by remaining easy to use, and fairly comfortable (at least, as on-ear headphones go)."

The Verge

Chris Welch | August 2019
"This latest set is more “Pro” than not in both looks and features: they offer active noise cancellation, a low-latency gaming mode, and have switched to a in-ear design with silicone tips. Just like many of the company’s laptops and gaming accessories, the 2021 Hammerhead True Wireless include Razer’s full Chroma RGB system. It makes for what Razer calls “the ultimate wireless earbud flex.”"
