Marshall Willen, new design and ultra-compact portable Bluetooth speaker

In addition to the new Emberton II (see our news Marshall Emberton II, new portable Bluetooth speaker), Marshal also presented a few days ago the most compact portable Bluetooth speaker ever offered by the brand, the Willen.

Square in shape, the iWillen ultraportable speaker from Marshall is IP67 certified, so it can survive a 30-minute immersion in 1 m of water. It is also equipped with a fastening strap to easily attach it anywhere, on a bicycle for example.

Marshall Willen, 310g and quick charge

With an autonomy of 15 hours, it benefits from a fast charge, i.e. 3 hours of listening for only 20 minutes of charge (and 3 hours for a full charge). Compact, it fits in the palm of the hand and weighs only 310 grams. The control is carried out via a multidirectional button accessing all the usual commands: pause, play, passage of tracks, volume and even on/off.

Marshall Willen, acoustic package and durable active speaker

The Willen features a 5 cm wideband loudspeaker, two passive radiators to enhance the rendering at low frequencies. Namely, the Stack mode allows you to associate as many Marshall Willen speakers as desired to create an amplified sound session. Similarly, the Marshall Willen is a durable speaker made of 60% recycled plastic from used household appliances, water bottles and automotive lights.

Bluetooth 5.1 compatible, the Marshall Embertone of course adopts Marshall's rock'n roll imagery with the brand's logo and a metal grille. Available at an indicative price of 99 euros.
