Marshall is one of those brands with a long history in the world of sound. In its catalog, it has headphones and speakers, but so far it did not have a product whose popularity has grown tremendously in recent years: completely wireless in-ear headphones. But that is over, as the company has just launched the Marshall Mode II.
They are completely wireless headphones, like the Galaxy Buds Pro or Huawei’s FreeBuds Pro. These stand out for having a sleek and elegant design and promise a good sound and autonomy of up to five hours. They can be pre-ordered now on the Marshall website at 179 euros, although they will not start shipping until March 18.

Elegant as few others
The Marshall Mode II headphones, as we said, stand out for having a very elegant design. They are finished in black and with a kind of rough surface, where the huge logo of the company stands out. This surface is touch-sensitive, so we can control playback with gestures. Each earphone weighs 4.75 grams and has IPX5 resistance, so theoretically they should resist sweat without problems.
The case, meanwhile, has a black cover with the company’s name that looks like leather (it is not mentioned if it is leather or if it simply simulates it). In turn, it has a rough stripe in the central area, something that should improve the grip, a USB Type-C port, and an LED that indicates the charging status of the case. It weighs 35 grams and has IPX4 resistance.
Sound-wise, each earphone has a custom six-millimeter dynamic driver that Marshall says delivers deep bass, smooth mid-tones, and crisp highs. It has a 20 Hz – 20 kHz response, a sensitivity of 100.5 dB SPL, and an impedance of 16 Ω. What it does not have is active noise cancellation, but it does have a transparency mode that improves the sound of vocals.
Let’s conclude by talking about battery and connectivity. Marshall has not disclosed the amperage of its new headphones, but it does assure that they are capable of offering five hours of autonomy on a single charge and 25 hours of autonomy with case charging. It will ultimately depend on how we use them. The headphones are compatible with iOS and Android and use Bluetooth 5.1.
