Marshall Motif ANC: True Wireless Bluetooth 5.2 Headphones with Active Noise Canceling

After the True Wireless Marshall Minor III presented in a previous news item, the British manufacturer unveils new wireless in-ear headphones, this time with an active noise reduction function, the Marshall Motif ANC

With the Motif ANC True Wireless earphones, Marshall lets you enjoy your favorite music as if you were at a concert, thanks to the active noise reduction feature. Combined with the passive isolation of the supplied end caps, active noise reduction allows you to completely isolate yourself to enjoy 100% of the sound.

Marshall Motif ANC, main specifications

Namely, the active noise reduction can be finely tuned to let the noise from its surroundings filter more or less, useful to remain vigilant against potential dangers when walking in the street for example. Otherwise, these wireless headphones still feature Bluetooth 5.2 for quality audio streaming through respectable size transducers, 6mm to reproduce a wide sound spectrum.

Comfort and functionality

On the comfort side, unlike the Minor III models which adopt a semi-intra configuration, like the Apple AirPods, the Marshall Motif ANC are true in-ear. Namely, the IPX5 certification (protection against water jets) is required for the headphones (resistance to water splashes, they can therefore be used in the rain), IPX4 for the storage / charging box. The controls, for music and call control, are tactile.

As for battery life, 4.5 hours are offered with active noise reduction, 6 hours without more than four additional full recharges via the case for a total of 20 hours with active noise reduction , 26 hours without. It is therefore possible to travel far without needing to refuel.

Available at an indicative price of 199 euros.
