Marshall presents its first ANC equipped in-ears. Expect the typical brand design and enjoy the silence!
ANC or Active Noise Cancelling is one of the things you would like to have nowadays. For example, to get rid of ambient noise during a session of home work or study. And while ANC used to be very expensive, those days are over. Take for example these new Marshall Motif in-ears. You pay a the relative modest amount of $199 for them.
Of course, this price is not based on ANC! The newborn Marschall in-ears come with a charging case designed in typical Marshall leather look. Furthermore, the plugs are IPX5 moisture resistant. Ideal for sports, for example, or just a daily commuter walk in the equally daily rain that – predictably – pours at that exact time.
A bit more punchy batteries would have been nice
Slightly less impressive is the relatively short playing time that the Marshall Motif offers on fully charged batteries: 4,5 hours. No drama, but it could have been a bit longer. Fortunately you can listen for up to 20 hours without a power outlet around, thanks to a rechargeable battery included in its case. Needless to say, you can make hands-free calls effortlessly with them too. If all goes as planned, the Motif ANC will be available by the time you read this.
