    The Marshall Emberton is a testament to Marshall’s commitment to quality and innovation. It seamlessly blends timeless design with cutting-edge technology, delivering a speaker that not only looks stunning but also sounds exceptional. The iconic Marshall logo adorns the front, paying homage to the brand’s heritage.Portability and Convenience: The Emberton’s compact size, weighing just 0.7 kilograms, makes it incredibly portable. Slip it into your bag or pocket, and you have a powerful sound system wherever you go.Sound Performance: Don’t be fooled by its size; the Emberton packs a punch. With two 10W drivers, it delivers a surprisingly rich and dynamic sound. The bass is deep and satisfying, the mids are clear, and the highs are crisp, offering a well-balanced audio experience. Even at high volumes, the sound remains distortion-free, showcasing Marshall’s commitment to audio excellence.In conclusion, the Marshall Emberton is a testament to Marshall’s engineering prowess. It defies its size, delivering a sound quality that rivals much larger speakers. Its robust build, impressive battery life, and excellent sound make it a top choice in the realm of portable Bluetooth speakers.

    A few months ago I had an epiphany. When I was a kid my father loved to have the best in sound equipment in the house, and I would play with graphic equalizers and lay in the floor looking for the best position between the giant speakers to experiment how to better enjoy the music.Today, I hear music in monophonic audio in an old JBL Charge 3 speaker (don’t tell my dad, he would be ashame of me).So I started to get better equipment. Now, I live in a small apartment with thin walls in a 3rd floor, so, big amplifiers and so are out of the question, but at least I could get better bluetooth speakers, so I tried the Marshall Emberton II.To say that I impressed with the sound would be an understatement. With out-of-the-box settings, the sound is more than detailed. 80s and 90s music sound outstanding although, Peter Cetera’s Glory of Love and Toto’s Africa vocals sound as I never heard them before, they are sharp and strong, sometimes detracting just a little from the overall sound (keywords here, really, just a little).This brings me to my first recommendation: do not mess with your applications equalizers if you don’t know what you are doing. This speakers were clearly designed to use the manufacturer equalizer settings (more on this later). I have youtube music and amazon prime music (yeah, I know, no spotify), and my sound with the latter was to heavy on bass, to the point of drowning the music and feeling almost distorting. Tron: Legacy’s soundtrack sounded specially dreadful, as Daftpunk uses heavy bass in their electronic music for that specific music. I then set the equalization in Amazon Prime Music to flat. It was a different performance altogether. I could ever hear some slight effects they used, that I had not noticed before.Now, one down for the application. Bluetooth pairing used Google Fast Pair, which was seamless and impressive (it shows appears to be a custom Marshall little window, so, it looks cool), but the application takes forever to actually “discover” the device, even when it is already paired.When it finally discover it (which was not too long, but took a couple of turning on and off the speaker), the application notified me of a firmware upgrade, which I proceeded to install. The installation failed miserably, so, I temporarily stopped that effort, which I retook successfully a day later. The update was surprisingly big in size, taking around 5 minutes to download, and the application simply marked the update successful while the speaker was still rebooting, which took a few seconds more than what I feel comfortable with, but it went through, and after that, the application again took surprisingly long to detect the speaker.To end that topic, the equalization settings are definitely underwhelming, with only three modes: Marshall, Voice and Push, of which I have only tried Marshall as everybody else says that Voice is just for podcast and such and Push increases bass at the expense of all the other sound bands quality.Lesson learned: unless too picky, when using this speaker, leave your apps equalizers on flat, their profile is that good.Now, to the hardware itself, people will notice this little wonder. Using the nostalgia factor with the Marshall amplifier design was a touch of genius, and the brass button on top is the cherry on top. Some reviews complain about a single button approach to multifunction (power, volume, forward-back, bluetooth pairing has another almost invisible button, which fits because you are not changing your pairing frequently). If we can handle touch control on over-head and in-ear speakers, this button is a piece of cake.My only complain in this department is that, at least for me, an old guy, the signs indicating the functions around the button, being carved in the black speaker, which has texture, are for all intent and purposes invisible, but once you get accustomed, an use the logo as a positional reference that’s not a problem anymore.And finally, the little caveat. Single speaker, stereo sound. Let that sink in.Done? Ok, they achieve this trick by separating the sound left and right with drivers back and front respectively (or was it the other way around? well, you get my point). Stereo suffers a little (not too much) because both sources are incredibly close, but it brings this caveat. This speaker should not be set as others, against walls, like in shelf, and so, because you end up drowning one side.The best position for this speaker is in the center of the audio stage, and if you want to appreciate the sound, you should point one side (not the front or back) to you. that way both sources are equally distanced from you so you get a better balance.If you are ok with the caveats this product is worth the price, I definitely recommend it.

    good sound quality, battery life, looks sexy, and it’s shower-safe!

    Not much to say. I looked up a lot of models and decided to try this based on the price and other reviews. I am very happy with it. Good battery, great texture, pretty good sound, and it’s small.

  5. Amazon Customer

    Very good full bodied sound. It feels much bigger than it is. It has enough gut to fill mid to big room with qualitative sound. Very enjoyable listening.Though, the companion app is almost useless, doesn’t have equalizer and doesn’t work on Android 14.

    Feels churlish to give just three stars. 3.5 imo. So to the point. I bought this Em II to mainly listen to my true crime podcasts in my bedroom. Easy & seamless Bluetooth connection to my iPhone 14max. Easy straightforward use for controls on the unit. I really didn’t need to look at the instructions with that. Smooth use there.To test the sound quality I streamed some mesic. The sound quality for music is fine’ish considering the size of speaker. It’s fine for background music if you’re flexible on sound quality as long as you don’t play loudly, at that point the music will frazzle out. So limited, not surprising. Podcast quality is definitely an improvement from my phone’s speaker and in line with the price point, in general. I think it should be about $25 less. The app is useless. I guess I expected something from the app. I’m at a loss for the point of it. I tried it out on my phone. It continued so say my phone Bluetooth was not on. Even as I was literally playing music through it. I did all the stuff. Restart, reconnect etc. Reviewed the booklet, Nothing. Everything re the speaker and phone working fine. But what is the point of the app? I interpreted from the manual that I should download the app to get extra features. Maybe bass and treble controls? The book claims you can stack more speakers through the app but I would not invest in that as it continually says my phones Bluetooth is off. lolFine retro look, sturdy, small footprint and working out for podcasts. Do not think the app is or will be helpful.If I were to try another I’d probably go with the Klipsch of similar design. It’s approximately $50 more but better sound and working app.Remove $25 dollars off price on the Em II and it’s a fair deal.

    I haven’t found anything to dislike. Sound is very good and it’s surprising given its small footprint.This gets nothing but accolades as it’s a wonderful product!

    Buen sonido, claro y nítido, buenos bajosDefinitivamente estas bocinas Bluetooth valen lo que cuestan. Una buena marca y buen sonido, si tienes dos y las pones en modo de apilamiento o stack se escuchan perfectas, fuerte y claro. Esos detalles de el sonido de la guitarra cuando enciende y cuando se apaga que hacen distintivo a la marca me parecen excelentes, para escuchar heavy metal son perfectas, pero también para escuchar música clásica, pop, electrónica, igual ver películas, tengo un monitor de pantalla ancha y se oyen perfectos los bajos.El único detalle que no me gusto es que no se pueden poner en modo estéreo o sea una a la izquierda y otra a la derecha y cada una reproduzca un canal, para eso compré el par hehe, pero ni modo las dos se escuchan en estéreo así es que la única manera que las oigo es en modo apilamiento o stack.No se batallan para el emparejamiento, solo que como no se conectan en stereo solo se conecta una y de ahí pues hay que presionar el botón de la principal 3 veces y la otra dos veces cada que las conecto para escuchar las dos. Fuera de eso tiene un buen sonido y son de calidad, solo que al subir completamente el volumen tienen una muy pequeña distorsión pero es muy mínima.Fuera de esos dos detalles es una muy buena marca y tiene un excelente sonido. Las recomiendo sin dudarlo.Nota: no recomiendo actualizar el firmware del dispositivo, yo lo hice en una bocina y su sonido pasó de ser claro y nítido a un sonido encerrado, soso y nada preciso. Después de eso lo restauré a las condiciones de salida de fábrica y todo perfecto volvió a tener el sonido fuerte y claro de cómo nuevo.

    Muy contento con la adquisición de ésta bocina.Que me gustó de ésta bocina: Bueno, pues lo primero y mas importante, la calidad del sonido que emite la bocina, es increible que de algo tan pequeño salga un sonido de tan alta calidad. Los materiales de los que está construida se ven sobrios pero elegantes y su diseño es agradable a la vista. Se siente de cosntrucción sólida y compacta. Su botón de funciones es sencillo e intuitivo. El indicador del nivel de bateria es adecuado. La encontré en barata, así que la relación calidad-precio fue excelente.Que no me gustó de la bocina: Ojalá pudiera emitir mayor volumen de sonido, pero creo, por el tamaño, que es lo que puede alcanzar a emtir.

    Fácil de usar e boa qualidade sonoraO som dela é muito bom, bem equilibrado e agradável. Tem potência sonora e boas respostas tanto em graves como nos agudos. A bateria dura bastante e é fácil de usar. Exceto pelo soquete de recarga que não aceita todos cabos USB-C. O encaixe é pequeno e só o cabo original consegue ficar no local e dar contato. A proteção externa deveria ter mais espaço para o plugue.De resto, ela faz jus à marca com bom acabamento e qualidade dos materiais.
