Marshall is a legendary brand; its guitar amplifiers have been flown with rockers through the ages.
Yet Marshall is not limited to guitars. It also offers some of the most attractive.
Bluetooth speakers are on the market, bringing their signature design and sound together with modern technology and functionality.
Among these new offerings is the Marshall Stanmore III Bluetooth Speaker, which is re-engineered to convey a high degree of immersion and power.
In this article, we will delve into what this does and what features and capabilities it has. So, if you’ve been curious about just how good it is, this should explain, and hopefully, you’ll pick up some useful info along the way!
The Marshall Stanmore Ⅲ is a mid-sized speaker that measures eight by 13.8 × 7 x 4 inches, 4.2Kgs.
It is retro and elegant in design with a cloth grille, faux leather shell and brass control panel. It comes in three colour options: black, brown, and cream. The front has the Marshall script logo and a beautiful mural of legalese on the back, where its only flaw is revealed.
The control panel includes a 3.5mm convenient aux-in, source button, five knobs for volume and bass & treble adjustment, along with a playback switch plus a power on and off switch.
All the knobs and switches operate with an excellent click, while even the volume control also features an indicator showing how full your batteries are.
NOTE – It even has a USB-C port, an RCA input on the back and an opening where drivers can easily travel.
It is a 5-inch speaker with two tweeters, each powered by a class-D amplifier.
Of course, it really needs to deliver the signature Marshall sound–rich and balanced with a wide stereo field of experience plus dynamic loudness that optimises tonal balance as you adjust the volume.
In addition, the app includes a parametric EQ and presets so you can tailor your sound just right.
t has Bluetooth 5.0, which ensures a stable and low-latency wireless connection. It can connect two devices simultaneously, seamlessly switching between your phone and computer.
It also boasts a Smart Ambient, allowing you to communicate with or listen to your surroundings without removing your headphones. The app lets you adjust its ambient sound level or use the talkthru mode, which drops the volume and boosts background voices.
Plus, the quality of the microphone is pretty good. You can clearly hear what you are saying in your speaker.
Battery life is long, with up to 50 hours without ANC or 40 hours if ANC is turned on.
It also has fast charging capabilities, allowing four hours of playback in 10 minutes. Includes a hard carrying case, USB-C and audio cable.
The device is also compatible with the Marshall Headphones app for iOS and Android devices. The app allows you to customise your sound, settings and controls and provides easy access to firmware updates and tips.
The Marshall Stanmore III successfully fills any room with its power and detail.
Its sound profile is slightly V-shaped, with correspondingly fuller bass and treble than the midrange. It is also suitable for rock and pop, hip-hop or EDM genres because it can give them a punchy feel. But if you’d rather hear a different sound, the app also allows users to customise EQ and presets.
Its noise cancellation does an excellent job of eliminating noises such as engine rumblings, office chatter or whirring fans. It also features a Smart Ambient function, allowing you to hear your surroundings or converse without taking off your headphones—the app or the TalkThru mode, which reduces the volume and brings out nearby voices better.
In addition, the speaker I have here is very good quality; it will pick up your voice with little background noise.
It has a long battery life of 50 hours with the ANC off or up to-4O if it is on. It also has fast charging capability, allowing you to get four hours of playback after just 10 minutes.
There is a USB-C port for charging and a 3.5mm jack for wired listening. In addition, it includes Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility for a stable and low-latency wireless connection. It can pair to two devices at once and switch back ‘n’ forth between your phone and laptop.
Yet, it is also being tested by other Bluetooth speakers in the same market segment, like Sony’s SRS-XG300 speaker, Bose SoundLink Revolve + and JBL Boombox 2.
Unlike the Marshall Stanmore III, these speakers are waterproof and can be used in multiple rooms simultaneously. They’re also equipped with a modestly long battery life. However, they also have their disadvantages such as:
- Less code support
- Less EQ customisation
- Less soundstage
Ultimately, it all comes down to what you prefer and require.
Marshall Stanmore III Bluetooth Speaker is top-ofhte-range.The design is retro and elegant, and the sound is powerful yet balanced with a wide stage and dynamic loudness. In addition, it provides extended battery life and a user-friendly app as well as Smart Ambient. It’s a speaker that can bring the legendary Marshall sound to your home, office or studio. Marshall’ has fused traditional sound and style with cutting-edge technology to create a Bluetooth speaker that splits the difference. If you get one, you’ll enjoy it. Good luck!
