Marshall Headphones has produced some home speakers in the past, but their newly announced Kilburn is their first portable speaker. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Marshall without that iconic Marshall amp style, grid, and classic logo. It connects via Bluetooth v4.0 + EDR or a audio cable. It has a 4″ woofer and 2 0.75″ tweeters inside. The active stereo loudspeaker system with Bass Reflex system has a class D amplifier (2X 5W and 1X 15W) and a frequency range of 62 – 20,000Hz. Cross over frequency is 4200Hz. The speaker has a rechargeable battery inside that’s good for up to 20 hours (at 50% volume level) of music between charges. Marshall Headphones says: “Setting the bar as one of the loudest speakers in its class, the Kilburn is a compact stout-hearted hero with a well-balanced audio which boasts a clear midrange and extended highs for a sound that is both articulate and pronounced. The analogue knobs allow you to fine tune the controls to your personal preferences while the guitar-influenced leather strap enables easy and stylish travel.”
The Kilburn will be available in black or cream for $300 USD starting in June 2015. Read the Marshall Headphone’s press release for more details.
