What is this Marshall speaker?

The Marshall Emberton II incorporates the always very elegant visual codes of the brand, with a metal grille accompanied by the Marshall logo on the front, and a black coating. The silicone surface helps with grip and protects against impacts, while a non-slip area prevents it from slipping. Note that an IP67 certification allows it to withstand brief immersion in water. Its dimensions of 16 × 6.8 × 7.6 cm and its weight of 672 g make it an easy to transport speaker.

On the top panel, the main button is used to turn on the Emberton II, control the volume or select tracks. The second button is more discreet and is used to pair your devices via Bluetooth. Note the presence of the multipoint connection, useful for connecting a second device to the speaker. The battery level indicator next to the buttons is well integrated overall and can be practical for always keeping an eye on the remaining autonomy.

Is this Marshall speaker worth it with headphones?

Less than €160 for a beautiful, high-performance speaker and Marshall headphones is a good deal. Marshall often focuses on the design of these products, but what about the audio? The Emberton II uses True Stereophonic technology for 360° sound distribution. This allows you to broadcast detailed sound, both in front and behind. Unfortunately, the speaker struggles to transcribe faithful sound on the sides and the tracks are less precise, with muffled instruments. The Emberton II has even more difficulty convincing at high volume outdoors, but remains sufficient to create ambiance. The speaker has an excellent battery life of over 20 hours.

As for the Major IV headphones, Marshall's design is once again perfect. The helmet is beautiful and comfortable, but a little fragile. The audio is decent despite a few flaws, such as sometimes lagging bass and treble. Fortunately, the monster battery life of 80 hours almost erases the few flaws.
