Marshall Motif A.N.C. Review


Quality audio performance with deep bass and sculpted highs ; Cool, rock-inspired design ; Water-resistant build

Pricey ; In-app EQ isn’t customizable ; Underwhelming noise cancellation

The Marshall Motif A.N.C. earphones deliver a strong audio experience, but we expected better noise cancellation and more app features for the price.

Marshall Motif ANC true wireless headphone review: Yet another hit


Marshall's Motif A.N.C. active noise-cancelling headphones look and sound great out of the box. They also feature different EQ settings.

Great sound with multiple EQ presets ; Effective active noise cancellation ; Highly configurable via the Marshall Bluetooth app

No user-defined EQ settings, only presets (a firmware update is promised) ; Only three sizes of eartips are provided ; A bit pricey

Marshall Motif ANC review: Wireless earbuds that rock...until they stop | ZDNet


These $199 wireless earbuds are an hour or two of battery life away from being top tier.

Well-balanced sound right out of the box ; Lightweight design is comfortable on the ears ; Companion app is very useful ; Wireless charging

Mediocre battery life ; Mids can sound distant ; Equalizer settings are preset

Marshall Motif ANC review: Slick sound that could last longer


The Marshall Motif ANC are a more premium choice for anyone looking to have earbuds emblazoned with the classic brand, but aside from good looks, the sound and performance also hold up. You just have to be OK with them not lasting as long per charge.

Excellent sound profile ; Lightweight build ; Decent ANC and ambient sound ; Nice retro design ; Solid app support ; Good call quality

Mediocre battery life ; EQ needs to be more customizable ; A shame there aren't other colors

Marshall matches its ability to make design look cool with audio quality that offers far more flexibility for all musical tastes. Their excellent performance is subdued by middling battery life, which means you'll be putting them back in their case often.

Marshall Motif ANC


A stylish pair of true wireless , the Marshall Motif ANC deliver strong audio, although the ANC isn't great nor is the battery life

Stylish design ; Good sound ; Comfortable fit

Middling battery life ; Disappointing ANC

A stylish set of true wireless earbuds, the Marshall Motif ANC deliver strong audio performance. Although the active noise cancellation isn’t great, nor is battery life isn’t top of the class, these buds still sound and look very good.

Marshall Motif ANC review: stylish noise-cancelling wireless earbuds


The Marshall Motif ANC look cool, they sound fantastic and they'll keep you focused on the music

Fantastic sound ; Stylish design ; Decent ANC

Battery life could be improved ; No manual equaliser ; Unreliable touch controls

The Marshall Motif ANC true wireless earbuds are everything you'd expect from such an iconic audio brand - they sound excellent, they look cool and the ANC works well. Admittedly the battery life could be better and there aren't loads of extra features...

Marshall Motif ANC earbuds review: Style over substance?


Marshall's distinctive earbuds have some unique looks, but how do they sound?

Solid sound ; Decent active noise-cancelling (ANC)

Not hugely comfortable ; Could look better ; Disapppointing battery life

Marshall's earbuds have some crucial flaws, in particular on the comfort side of things, that hold them back and make alternative choices a good chunk more attractive at this price.

Marshall Motif ANC review: Big on style, short on customisation


The Marshall Motif ANC nail the brand's signature sound and style, but are held back by limited customisation and several niggling issues

Perfectly tuned for rock and metal ; Stylish speaker-inspired design ; Reasonable noise cancellation

Not the most comfortable fit ; Limited customisation options ; Mediocre battery life
