British audio company Marshall has announced the launch of the newest in its headphone series – the Marshall Headphones Mid Bluetooth Black. Promising over 30+ hours of playtime on a single charge and featuring Bluetooth AptX audio, these on ear headphones are just in time for festive season gifting.
Marshall Amplification founded by English drummer Jim Marshall, famed for working with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and The Who. Apart from headphones, Marshall also makes speakers, music amplifiers and drum kits that are popular worldwide.
The Mid Bluetooth succeeds the Major II Bluetooth Headphones and is similar to its predecessor in almost every feature. Despite being smaller and less bulky in size, the Mid Bluetooth packs the same power as the Major II – a frequency range of 10 kHz to 20 kHz and 40mm drivers. The sound is loud with emphasis on bass and will have you reaching for the volume down control quite often. The Mid Bluetooth look stays true to the standard Marshall standard of black with gold trimmings. In a nutshell, these headphones are compact, lightweight and stylish.
The Mid Bluetooth comes with a 3.5mm audio cable in case your battery dies out and akin to the Major II lets you share audio with someone else while staying wirelessly connected to your phone. The brass control knob lets you play, pause, control volume, fast forward, rewind, and shuffle music as well as receive, end or reject calls. Two built in microphones allow you to not only have clear conversations but also record voice memos through your device.
Enhanced audio ensures you enjoy movies with cinema quality sound and even use the Mid Bluetooth professionally in the studio and DJ booth. The headphones have the standard connectivity range of 30 ft. which in actuality provides crisp sound even at a range of 40 ft. While you do have the option of listening to music with regular cables, sounds are crisper in Bluetooth mode as opposed to the cabled mode.
On the flip-side, the Mid Bluetooth is not too sturdy, so if you will be carrying it along in your backpack with other luggage, it would be wise to invest in a special case. Moreover, its features are not too different from the Major II that retails at over $50 cheaper.
The Mid Bluetooth Black is available at select retailers and online on the Marshall official website at a price tag of $199, with delivery estimated at 6 days from the date of purchase.
