  • Small and mighty!
    Reviewed by Bren - August 9, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My initial attraction to this awesome Bluetooth speaker is the fact that it departs from the typical soda can looking Bluetooth speakers that are out there and provides a cool, vintage-vibe looking speaker that supports Marshall's legacy as an excellent speaker and amplifier company as well as providing incredible audio out of a speaker at this price point. As is typical of Marshall consumer audio-products like their Bluetooth headphones, this speaker includes all the fun quirks of the brand. All of the speaker interaction sounds that go with powering the speaker on-off etc. are little guitar riffs and other electric guitar sounds. That is fun and sets this speaker apart from other run-of-the-mill speakers. The multi-control knob is fluid for skipping songs, increasing the volume, and turning the device on and off with a separate button solely committed to Bluetooth connectivity (this utilizes Bluetooth 5.0). The rubberized, textured feel of this speaker feels high quality--absolutely a cut above the competition. This speaker feels like it could take a tumble from a height no problem and live to play another day--not that I was willing to toss this on the ground to test that assumption! A neutral observation to note with this speaker. It is Bluetooth connection only. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack, so be aware of that. Other speakers in the Marshall lineup certainly have 3.5mm headphone jacks. My opinion on this is that, for one, the higher waterproof rating (IPX7) is achieved with the exclusion of this jack as it is, by design, a higher-likely point of ingress for moisture than the strict USB-C this speaker utilizes for charging. None-the-less, if you are looking to use this speaker in conjunction with a 3.5mm audio input device like a vintage iPod (how crazy to have to say that!), an Echo Dot, etc. The sound. The sound the sound. Oh how I love the sound of this speaker. I have review a lot of Bluetooth speakers. So when I turned this on and put on my audio testing playlist, trust me when I say I was astonished by the sound! The two 2" 10 watt speakers produce incredible highs, great mids, and respectable bass notes out of a speaker of this size and build. Furthermore, their claim to a 360 degree sound I feel is accurate. I tested this speaker in different spaces throughout my house, and I found that the sound had an even reverberation and tonality through the space it was placed in. The speaker gets LOUD too. Definitely could be a respectable audio source for a houseboat party float, backyard bash, etc.! One last cool little feature I wanted to mention is the charge level indicator located on top of the device. This is my first speaker to have a clear and constant visual indicator of how much battery charge is remaining which is really neat! I cannot speak to the claim of a 20 hour runtime, only that that is based on the power demand of the device and that Marshall almost certainly tested that runtime at a fixed volume, probably in the midrange. Thus, higher will drain the speaker faster, lower slower, etc. Overall, I think the price for the value of the product you are getting with this little Emberton speaker is awesome. I highly recommend it if you are someone who is as concerned with the looks of an audio device as you are its features and sound!

  • MARSHALL = Iconic Rock 'n' Roll !!!
    Reviewed by TechReviews - August 4, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] If you’ve ever been to an arena rock concert (1960s - 2019 art form), then you’ve likely experienced the Marshall brand and amplification on stage — possibly even an entire wall of Marshall Amps capable of leaving your ears ringing for days. My history with Jim Marshall’s legendary British amplifier company dates back to the 1990’s when I purchased my first Marshall guitar amplifier. You can imagine my enthusiasm when given the opportunity to evaluate this Emberton miniature bluetooth speaker. Marshall Amplifiers and Gibson’s Les Paul electric guitars are iconic staples, synonymous with Rock ’n’ Roll. Visualize The Who, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Def Leppard, Guns N Roses Slash, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Muse, Randy Rhoads, Ozzy Osbourne, Nirvana, Eddie Van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, ZZ Top, and many more. Even Nigel Tufnel’s Marshall Amp on cult-classic Mockumentary “Spinal Tap” famously “goes to 11”. Just as Marshall had various vintage amplifier models spanning decades, including : - JTM 45 - ’62 Bluesbreaker - ’59 Plexi - ‘70s JMP 2203 - 80s JCM 800 - 90s JCM 900 - JCM 2000 - JCM, JVM, DSL and more This is far from their first bluetooth portable speaker, but it is the NEWEST and MOST AFFORDABLE - $149 Emberton < * this product here * > - $160 Stockwell II - $199 UXBridge - $249 Action II - $249 Killburn II - $299 Action II (voice) - $349 Stanmore II - $399 Stanmore II (voice) - $399 Tufton - $499 Woburn II While the classic Marshall sound is predominately a high-gain “crunch” sound, this little guy delivers Distortion-free music, even at max volume. This speaker really shines with a rich and smooth mid-range. Bass is adequately meaty (how much air can small drivers really move), and highs are clean and clear without tinny sounding harshness all too many portable speakers these days. “True Stereophonic” multi-directional technology is no gimmick. The sound field is super wide, open and airy. It never seems to strain regardless of what I pushed it wish. I was pretty blown away that it sounds as clear faced rearward, or even face down on the grille. It was convincing enough that my wife failed to identify which direction it was facing, front, back, side, upright, all sounded equally good. PROS ——— +“True Stereophonic” multi-directional 360 sound + H U G E sound from dense footprint + quick charge 20 minutes = 5 hours + full charge is 20 hours battery life + easy to see battery indicator on top + thumb joystick for volume + / - and track > / < + IPX7 waterproof certification (3 feet for 30 seconds) + rugged design, solidly built, quality craftsmanship + decent heft, rounded corners, silicone exterior + capable of filling a room with decdnt sound + USB-C (not mini- or micro-USB) + finally a lengthy charging cable + bluetooth 5.0 up to 33 feet CONS ——— -on-board EQ would be nice, but iPhone tools do the job -no ability to link to another unit for double speaker stereo -no support for aptX codec CONCLUSION ———————- There seems to be no shortage of cheaply made, low-FI bluetooth speakers to pick from these days. We’ve tried many of them to utter disappointment. This Marshall Emberton most definitely punches above it’s weight class. It’s rugged exterior, waterproof for 30 seconds @3-ft, and very decent sound quality make this a contender for an affordable portable speaker that maintains quality. Recommend

  • Best portable speaker
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Applelover - July 23, 2021

    The best portable speaker I purchased in a long time. The clarity, the bass, and loudness inside this small unit is so surprisingly awesome. And if you’re a Marshall fanatic like I am, it’s a must and a plus!

  • Classic brand, classic sound!
    Reviewed by MischiefOW - August 4, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had many Bluetooth speakers in my day. Marshal has hand downs been a go to brand for big bands and it’s brought the same quality now to the regular consumer. The quality on the speaker is next to none. Sturdy rubberized black silicone-like material that surrounds the USB type-C Connection and the whole speaker itself. It’s nice and heavy and feels amazing. I remember touching the big Marshal amps my older cousins used to use, such a blast form the past. The neatest part is the metal grill with the Marshal logo. Absolutely amazing sound and quality. Easy to pair and high quality material means this a a no-brained to recommend to any audiophile.

  • Bass punch with battery life that is awesome.
    Reviewed by PhillipB - August 5, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The bass on this little speaker is great. Battery life is great. Sound. Highs and Bass are distinct. Voice comes out clear. Connection. Easy. Simple Bluetooth connection. No need for separate software etc. Battery. I am on day 2 on my typical work from home and I am only down 10%. At this rate it will last about 10 days. Appearance. Looks like a guitar amp. Nice colors and feel of rubber around for slip resistance and drop protection. Functionally. Sound comes from both sides. No need to mess with dust covers. Only 1 plug to plug a USB C to charge. 1 multi toggle button to control volume, fast forward, rewind, and power. Another for Bluetooth. I actually had the guts to submerge this in water and it survived... Great job Marshall. I would highly recommend this product.
