The headphones designed by the Marshall people are seeking an alternative to Apple’s ubiquitous AirPods. Marshall, famous for the live audio equipment recently acquired by the Swedish company Zound Industries, expanded its range with several generations of headphones and wireless speakers. Marshall today announced the $199.99 Motif II headphones with improved noise cancellation and battery life.

The Motif II ANC is the first Marshall headphone to be LE Audio ready. The company said in a press release that this technology improves the audio quality while increasing the streaming bandwidth and increasing the timeframe of recording audio. But LE Audio is still in the early stages of its implementation.
LE Audio allows you to transmit audio data via Bluetooth. This increases the battery life of the connected devices. LE Audio also adds a new LC3 codec, Auracast broadcast technology, Multi-Stream capability, sound support and an improved Wifi switch performance.

The new headphones are in accordance with Marshalls signature style: their notched feet and texture make them feel comfortable next to any company’s equipment. Marshall claims that the headphones and the housing are made of 70 percent recycled plastic. The owner can rely on six hours of playback or 30 hours with the recharging in the case. The manufacturer promises improved battery life.
The Marshall Motif II ANC comes with wireless charging support and multi-point connectivity, so you can combine them with two different devices at the same time. The headphones only use SBC and AAC codecs as their tools, and LC3 will be available as soon as LE audio has launched. People who are angry at lack of AptX or other software, can’t afford to listen to these headphones or give themselves a full range of tools.
