With AirPods 3 missing, Marshall releases new true wireless earbuds

in General Discussion
While Apple didn't announce any new AirPods at its September iPhone 13 release event, rock-inspired brand Marshall is out with two new sets of true wireless earbuds.

Marshall's newest earbuds are the Motif ANC and the Minor III and they have rough shapes similar to that of the AirPods Pro and AirPods.

Minor III

Marshall's entry-level Minor III earbuds have 12mm drivers that were custom-tuned to deliver Marshall's signature sound with "enhanced bass, smooth mids, and clear highs."

They charging case and earbuds combo boast up to 25 hours of total playtime with five hours per earbud set charge. The charging case is powered over USB-C or wirelessly via Qi. Other features include IPX4 water resistance and touch-sensitive controls.

The Marshall Minor III earbuds are available now for $129 from Marshall directly as well as Amazon.

Motif ANC

Then we have the Motif ANC. The premium offering brings active noise cancellation and adjustable EQ with the companion app. The level of ANC can be set within the app, as can the level of transparency when letting in external sound.

Battery life is rated at 4.5 hours at once and a total of 20 hours when combined with the wireless charging case. This high-end set also has stronger IPX5 water resistance.

The Marshall Motif ANC earbuds are available for preorder now for $199 from
Marshall directly and begin shipping September 30.

    Hopefully the volume goes to 11, you know, for when you need that extra push over the cliff.

    Really? They had to knockoff the AirPods cases?

    Companies I once respected are becoming Apple “me too” copycat companies.

    "With AirPods 3 missing"

    Un-announced products cannot be deemed missing. All anything is before an announcement is simply rumour and wishful thinking.

    I thought the rumor was that there is going to be another event in October, and that was when the new airpods would/could be announced?

    I am anxiously waiting for the redesigned M1 Mac Mini!

    Do we remember the old children song: “Let us play in the woods while the wolf is not there”?
