Marshall In-Ear Headphones

by Volker Weber


Marshall presented a new set of In-Ear headphones at IFA in Berlin. There are some neat details like the cable protection on the angled plug. This is where most earphones are likely to break. And there is a (black) switch on the cable remote control. This changes EQ settings for the headphones between heavy bass and crystal clear mids and highs. The golden button is the usual play/pause/fwd/rew button and that works on all phones. If you see volume up/down, the remote usually only works with iOS devices.


Played both house and rock music, and I love the sound. The headphones come with four different gels, I needed the second largest for a good seal. Remember to always fit your in-ear headphones for a good seal, otherwise they will not deliver.

Interesting because the cable protection at the plug is standard for cables that musicians use. No wonder this "invention" was made by Marshall :)...

That's the deal for all products. They want transfer some bad-ass from their guitar amps. Look at the Woburn they just introduced. That's what I really want.

Volker, I'd be interested on your thoughts of the new Bose QC25 noise cancelling g headphones also announced last week at IFA?

Do they go to 11? ;-)

Lewis, Bose knows what they are doing. Sound is good, but not great. It's a simple wired headset which makes sense if you only use it during air travel. It folds nicely into a small carrying case which also holds the cable and an adapter. N/C is driven by a AAA battery whoch is spec'ed to last 30something hours.

On a personal note, I don't want one since I have a number of better options. But the QC15 was the default headset for air travelers and I suspect many bought them with miles.

Hi ... what are the better options with NC?

Nokia BH-905i ist wesentlich bequemer und kann mehr. Sitzt auf dem Ohr und nicht um's Ohr. Nokia BH-920 (Purity Pro) kann mehr, schaltet NC und BT automatisch ein uns aus, ist aufladbar. Eine Ecke billiger ist er auch und schaut nicht so nach Business Kasper aus. Den nehme ich aktuell überall mit hin.

Aber jetzt habe ich diesen Plantronics BackBeat Pro und ich denke, dass der den Nokia ablöst. Auch wenn er arg riesig ist.

Richard, of course they do. And you have to get a large tatoo.

Volker Weber, 2014-09-06

Thanks Volker. The ideal I dream for is Noise Cancelling wireless headphones... One day...

Lewis Turek, 2014-09-06

Lewis, I recommend you check out the Plantronics BackBeat Pro
