If you know the Marshall Emberton II speaker, the new Middleton uses the same true stereophonic system to produce multidirectional 360° stereo audio so you feel like you’re in the room with the players you’re listening to – and it’s all what Marshall like to say is “optimised for loud”, what we’ve come to expect from a company that has been behind the world’s best artists since it was founded in 1962. We’re talking 87 db SPL @ 1m.

Outside, you’ve got the classic Marshall look, with the sturdy frame consisting of 55 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic from used electronics, water bottles and automotive light products. Plus, it’s 100 per cent PVC free.

Inside, you’ve got a rechargeable battery Marshall claim will keep the Middleton annoying the neighbours for more than 20 hours. It will also act as a power bank to charge your other devices.
