The Middleton speaker has controls for playback, bass, and treble using controls on the speaker or within the companion app. Built-in Dynamic Loudness adjusts the tonal balance of the sound, so music sounds excellent at every volume.

Middleton uses True Stereophonic, a unique form of multi-directional stereo sound from Marshall. The company claims that it that can offer spatial audio and binaural sound for a surround-sound experience in a single unit.

The speaker has an IP67 rating for resistance to dust and water, making it a flexible speaker that works indoors and outdoors. And a single charge offers over 20 hours of playtime and reaches 100% battery life in 4.5 hours, or two hours of playtime with 20 minutes of charging.
