Stuff that works :: Marshall Monitor Bluetooth

The AirPods are my favorite earbuds. And the Marshall Monitor is my favorite over-the-ear headset. It fits my large head and my ears, it plays well with my very own set of music, and the battery seems to last forever. No active noise cancellation but excellent passive isolation, a single brass knob to control everything. Not to forget that is goes to eleven.

Update for Ralph: yes, it shows its battery level both in the header and the widget. More importantly, volume is coordinated. It does not matter if you adjust it via the brass knob, the iPhone volume rocker or the Apple Watch. Be careful here. I hardly ever have this headset over 50 percent volume.

Do they show battery status on the iPhone's status bar and widget?

Thanks for the update! Had the Backbeat Pro for some time and really liked them, but they where too big. The Backbeat Pro 2 where a big step backwards in my opinion: Neither sound, nor comfort, nor material where on par with their predecessor and they where too expensive. Sold them again and bought the AirPods. No looking back but from time to time I want some more "oomph" - especially when traveling or commuting.

The Marshall Monitor look to be just the right companion for the AirPods.

I think this Marshall headset is also too expensive at its suggested retail price of 249 €. Don't buy from the Marshall website. You should be able to get it for 149 €.

As where the Backbeat Pro 2 ;-) Where did you find them for € 149?

@ralph: On the internet. I don't want name a shop here, but any given search engine should point you in the right direction.

"brass nob" - an unfortunate typo ;)

I don't even want to know.
