Marshall Kilburn II Bluetooth Speaker

Audio brands will inevitably live and die by the quality of the sound that their devices are capable of producing and whilst this is, of course, of paramount importance, it is the aesthetics that we hold equally as valuable here at Coolector HQ and that’s why we always find ourselves gravitating towards the products of Marshall – especially their latest release, the wonderfully eye-catching Kilburn II Bluetooth Speaker.

The Kilburn II Bluetooth Speaker from Marshall is billed, somewhat wonderfully, as a stout-hearted hero and one that is capable of delivering some 20+ hours of portable playback. With a price tag of $299, it represents a great value audio solution for all your autumn camping adventures or backyard BBQs and the Kilburn II Bluetooth Speaker is free from the confines of wires and cords and the 20+ playback on a single charge is a real feather in its already many-feathered cap.

Impressive Technological Performance

There are an awful lot of impressive features to the Marshall Kilburn II Bluetooth Speaker, especially when you take its $300 price tag into consideration. This includes the fact it comes replete with Bluetooth 5.0 aptX technology for wireless music play, thoroughly engaging multi-directional sound that will immerse you in your music, indoors or out and a supremely rugged and robust design that means the Kilburn II is ready for whatever adventure comes your way.

Portable thanks to its lightweight design, the Kilburn II Bluetooth Speaker from Marshall weighs in at just 2.5kg, this is an audio device that really is built for adventure and trips out into the wild. It boasts a clear midrange, deep bass and extended highs that are unparalleled for a speaker this size and, in a nod to the legacy of rock ‘n’ roll, the Kilburn II has a solid metal grille that is a homage to the steel mesh grille found on many microphones. Last but not least, it has a guitar inspired carrying strap for easy portability when on the go.

The Marshall Kilburn II Bluetooth Speaker has eye-catching, flush mounted corner caps and an impressive water-resistant design which ensures it fantastically rugged and durable wherever you plan to take it. You can play your favourite music with any Bluetooth device at a range of up to 30 feet away from the speaker which makes it one of the most functional and versatile speakers on the market. In addition, the multi-host functionality means you can easily connect and switch between two Bluetooth devices effortlessly.

Cool Customisation Capabilities

With the Marshall Kilburn II Bluetooth Speaker, you always have full control of how you listen to your favourite tunes. It has an aesthetically pleasing top panel which boasts analogue control knobs for bass, treble and volume, allowing you to fine-tune it to the exact sound you’re after. The quick charging capabilities mean you can pick up and leave at a moment’s notice as 20 minutes charge gets you 20 hours of portable playtime, while a fully charged battery can be reached in just 2.5 hours.

Great price, eye-catching visual impact and a really phenomenal audio performance all combine to make the Kilburn II from Marshall one of their stand out devices to date. If you’re looking for a lightweight but top performing speaker for your home or road trips in the rest of 2018 and beyond, look no further than this when it hits the shelves on 13th September.
