Raw Power: Marshall debuts first True Wireless earbuds, partners with rock legend Iggy Pop

Rock ‘n’ roll brand Marshall has introduced its first True Wireless in-ear headphones, the Mode II.

Engineered to deliver the brand’s signature sound using custom-tuned dynamic 6mm drivers, they promise deep bass, naturalistic midrange and crisp treble. If you need to tweak, you can fine-tune EQ settings using the accompanying app. The Bluetooth employed here is v5.1 

There’s obviously not much room for the classic Marshall iconography on these little buds, but they do sport the classic Marshall M. 

The Mode II have an IPX4 water-resistance rating and offer touch sensitive control. A quick dab will activate Transparency mode and voice assistant.

The headphones offer five hours of playback when fully charged, with 20 hours more available via the carry case. The Marshall Mode II sell for £159.

The launch of the Mode II coincides with a new ad campaign from the brand, featuring the legendary Iggy Pop, An artist, it says, that has always embodied the loud, unapologetic spirit of Marshall.

We say, if you haven’t got Iggy and the Stooges’ Raw Power in your album collection then you really don’t know how to roll your rocks.

Marshall notes its new campaign ‘not only explores their rich history of working within emerging and rebellious countercultures of the past, but also the way that Marshall continues to influence and support new voices.’

“Iggy is one of the few artists who has continued throughout the years to be nothing but original, rebellious and loud, in every sense of the word,” says Creative Director Andrew Sekora.
