Audio company Marshall has announced the launch of Minor II Bluetooth, a wireless set of earbuds offering 12 hours of playback alongside an in-ear design. This model follows the original Minor earbuds, which were launched back in 2011. The updated version includes wireless support and an integrated microphone.
The Marshall Minor II Bluetooth features a retro-like design similar to other existing products from the company. Buyers can choose between white, black, and brown color options, each with an outward facing metal bit on the ear pieces.
The earbuds have an in-line control with a microphone and a brass-colored multi-directional control knob; this is used to answer calls or control music. Design aside, the Minor II Bluetooth has a low-energy standby mode, which shuts down the model after six hours in standby to save battery charge.
This model features 14.2mm drivers, a 20Hz to 20,000Hz frequency response, and Bluetooth 5.0 aptX connectivity. A magnetic pause function automatically pauses audio when the ear pieces are connected together, that enabling the headphones to drape around one’s neck when not in use.
According to Marshall, the ear pieces were engineered to stay in one’s ears “lightly” over long periods, a unique shape helping create an ideal fit. This model is available now from Marshall in all three color options for $129 USD.
