Marshall has an illustrious history in the field of stage speakers, but also makes very nice headphones. Like the new Monitor II.
The Marshall Monitor II A.N.C. (as it’s officially called) is a wireless Bluetooth headset with ANC, or Active Noise Cancelling. Noise Cancelling is adjustable in two steps; moreover, this technique can be turned off in the so-called Monitor Mode. Furthermore, it is an over-ear design with 40mm drivers. The mobile workforce has also been taken into consideration, as microphones for hands-free conversations are available. And for enthusiasts: Google Assistant can also be used.
A multi-functional rotary knob controls the music and calling capabilities of the Monitor II. Another knob allows you to switch between user-defined equalizer settings. It also activates the Google Assistant.
When fully charged, the built-in batteries provide up to 30 hours of playing time with the ANC turned on; without the ANC, you can play for up to 45 hours. A quick charge function allows you to refuel the Marshall Monitor II up to 5 hours of playing time in 15 minutes. The soft ear shells together with the padded brace ensure wearing comfort. Included are a USB C charging cable, a separate 3.5 mm audio cable (for when the battery is empty) and a tarpaulin carrying bag. The Marshall Monitor II costs €299.
