Marshall’s Waterproof Emberton Speaker Runs For 20 hours on a Single Charge

Published on July 1, 2020

You might not be able to enjoy that many pool parties during COVID summer, but Marshall’s latest speaker will definitely be useful once social distancing policies come to a close. Marshall’s new Emberton speaker put Marshall’s signature sound in a vintage-styled chassis that weighs less than 25 ounces and is IPX7 certified. An IPX7 certification means the Emberton speaker can be submerged in about a meter (about 3 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes.

Despite its tiny stature, Marshall’s Emberton sounds rich, loud, and distortion-free. The speaker features a multi-directional sound output that according to Marshall means ‘every spot is a sweet spot.’ Battery life is outstanding, coming in at more than 20 hours on a single charge. Also, there’s support for fast-charging. 20 minutes connected to a charger will net you 5 hours of battery life. The Marshall Emberton speaker has Bluetooth 5.0 support, so it can maintain a connection to another compatible device at a range of around 33 feet.

Marshall’s Emberton Speaker is $149. That’s the same price the popular Boom 3 speaker by Ultimate Ears’. These two speakers widely match each other’s features. The Boom 3, though, includes dust protection and Marshall’s Emberton does not. Both speakers do, however, include 360-degree sound, and both feature water resistance. Marshall’s new speaker has 33% more battery life than its Ultimate Ears counterpart, with the Boom 3 rated for just 15 hours on a single charge. Another win for Marshall’s Emberton is the inclusion of a USB-C port rather than an old Micro-USB solution.

At $50 less, Sony’s XB23 Bluetooth speaker only includes 12 hours of run time. So basically, Marshall is joining a pretty crowded sector of the Bluetooth speaker market. Consumers already have several compelling options, but Marshall’s Emberton really stands out with its vintage look, high performance, and long-lasting battery.
