Taking inspiration from old-school headphone design and current tech, Marshall is expanding beyond amp-inspired refrigerators and Bluetooth speakers to introduce the Monitor II A.N.C. These premium, over-ear headphones come with sophisticated technology that effectively blocks outside noises so listeners can focus on what's important—the music.
The high-performance Monitor II A.N.C. has been made with 40 mm dynamic drivers in order to produce Marshall's high-quality signature sound. No part of the audio spectrum is left out, from clean upper register sound through tight mid-range audio to profound deep bass notes.
Marshall's advanced active noise canceling works by identifying and analyzing ambient sound to selectively block the noise that might interfere with your listening experience.
Simply press the Active Noise Canceling (A.N.C.) button to switch modes or just turn off the function if you need to stay aware of the environment around you.
The Monitor II A.N.C. can provide as much as 30 hours of wireless play—with the active noise canceling engaged. Turn that off for a remarkable 45 hours of use.
It juices up pretty fast too—just 15 minutes of charge time will give the user five hours of listening.
Marshall has also installed Google Voice Assistance. From their press release:
Monitor II A.N.C. combine the legendary sound of Marshall with the helpfulness of the Google Assistant. Enjoy entertainment, keep in touch with friends, get answers to questions and manage your day – all without glancing at your phone. With a press and hold of the M-button on your headphones you can tell your Assistant to play your favourite playlist, read your text messages or give you directions while on-the-go.
You may never take them off again, save to charge them.
Monitor II A.N.C. headphones come in a canvas carrying bag with a detachable cord and a USB-C charging cable.
Marshall's Monitor II A.N.C. is available around the world and online at marshallheadphones.com beginning March 17, 2020. The manufacturer's suggested retail price: $319.
