Sonys gon' be higher fidelity with more capability. Marshalls are pretty fucking fantastic and I kinda adore their tuning. I really like using them with the Xduoo Link dongle as well and they sounded so good on my Zen DAC with the TrueBass on that I almost made sweet love to them right there and then. But alas no consent so I refrained.
What I know now I would say the Sonys because they're likely going to be more comfortable with a better range of options. If it was between the Sony XBs and the Marshalls I'd say Marshalls. But the WH has some very pleasant mids and highs, along with the ability to tweak the EQ.
Again, and I can't say this enough, the biggest decider should be staging. Do you want sound that sounds up close to you or like you're sitting on a couch with speakers in front of you? The Marshalls have great sound but the staging is up close. As a result they sound "fun". The Sonys are likely to push that stage back making them more relaxed and enjoyable for listening sessions.
So my advice would be -> Sonys but only the WH.
