Marshall has expanded its True Wireless earbud line with its first noise cancelling model, the Motif A.N.C., and cheaper stablemate Minor III. Both models herald an entirely new stick earbud design for the brand, rather than the more familiar dot, but retain the brand’s distinctive rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic.
Tech specs look good. Fully charged, the Marshall Motif buds boast a 4.5 hour battery life, with a cumulative 20 hours, if you include the reserve in the charging case. Active noise cancellation and sonic transparency is fully adjustable.
If you switch noise cancelling off, you’ll up playtime to six hours. Even with Active Noise Cancelling off, the buds claim a level of passive noise cancellation, owing to their sealed-fit design.
The Motif buds feature a 6mm dynamic driver, with touch-sensitive control and built-in dual microphones. The earbuds are certified IPX5, for water resistance. Bluetooth is v5.2.
