New to its range of Bluetooth speakers, the Marshall Willen and Emberton II are two ultra-compact portable speakers. To make things more interesting, both are compatible with Marshall’s Bluetooth app and feature the expandable Stack Mode.
The new Marshall Willen
The Willen combines classic Marshall looks with the latest in portable speaker technology. Equipped with a 2-inch full-range driver and two passive radiators, it may be lightweight but promises to pack a punch. As far as the build goes, the IP67 rating means it’s protected from dust and has basic water resistance.
Combined with 15+ hours of playback time, the Willen is rugged enough to carry around wherever you go exploring, both indoors or out and about. In addition, you can now control the Willen via the mobile Bluetooth app and link multiple speakers in your rig with the nifty Stack Mode feature.
Now available in black or bronze for preorder at $119.99, shipping from June 2.
The Emberton II
The slightly larger Emberton II is an update on its predecessor that now boasts up to 30+ hours of playback time. The True Stereophonic speaker system consists of two 2-inch full-range drivers and two passive radiators. In addition, the Emberton II also has an IP67 rating and is ready for outdoor fun.
This delivers the Marshall sound in 360° wherever you choose to listen and once the party’s over, the Emberton II takes only 3 hours to return to full battery life. To customize your experience, the Marshall app gives you EQ presets, while OTA(Over-the-Air) updates will ensure you have the latest firmware.
The Emberton II comes in both black and bronze and is also currently available for preorder. It’s priced at $169.99 and ships from May 10.
