THE Anatel carried out the homologation of the two new Bluetooth speakers of the Marshall brand. Thus, both Emberton I and Emberton II can now be sold in Brazil. According to the company, the gadgets offer more than 20 hours of use without having to recharge. Another highlight is the 360° sound technology, which promises to deliver multidirectional audio quality.
Through the information released by the National Telecommunications Agencyit is possible to note that the approval was issued on December 22, 2022. The applicant was Admiralty Importação e Exportação, while the manufacturer is Zound Industries International AB.
Thus, both Bluetooth speakers can be sold in the country in the same colors available abroad. Emberton I brings Black, Cream, Black & Brass and Forest options. Emberton II has only Black & Brass and Cream versions.
It is important to point out that the Technical Compliance Certificate contains information that the two devices have the same characteristics as each other. Differences between models are battery life, color options and upgrade to IP67, exclusive to the Emberton II version.
They were released in the United States in May 2022 with prices starting at $169.99.
Compact and waterproof
Both new Marshall speakers bring interesting features. Starting with the size, the gadgets are small and compact, but they don’t disappear among other objects. In addition, they weigh no more than 0.7 kg, making it easy to move to parties and other places.
Marshall preferred to opt for IP67 certification in this new model, that is, they are waterproof and dustproof. For those who expect to use the devices for a long time, the brand claims that the internal battery lasts more than 20 hours of portable use. With just 20 minutes of charge, you can enjoy at least five hours of music and podcasts. However, there is a need to recharge for three hours to have 100% power. All over USB-C, of course.
The Bluetooth connection is 5.0, nothing 5.1 here, which is a shame.
Finally, a feature that caught my attention is the battery indicator on top of the Emberton. It has 10 segments that represent the current energy load. This facilitates during use, as it does not take the user by surprise at the most important moments of the day.
