BERLIN – Aug. 30, 2018 – Introducing Kilburn II, a portable speaker that packs a punch. New for Kilburn II is the multi-directional Blumlein stereo sound, which will immerse you in your music, indoors or out, as well as Bluetooth Qualcomm® aptX™.
Free from the confines of wires and cords, Kilburn II offers 20+ hours of portable playtime on a single charge.
BLUMLEIN STEREO SOUND
Kilburn II is constructed with British engineer Alan Blumlein’s original idea of stereophonic sound. By separating out the spatial content of stereo recordings, Kilburn II enhances the size and reassembles the signal in a way that can be projected in all directions. The experience is completely different to other portable speakers on the market, and results in a rich, multi-directional sound that immerses the listener in their music and gives them a true 360° sound experience – indoors or outdoors.
20+ HOURS OF PORTABLE PLAYTIME
Kilburn II weighs just 3kg (6.6 pounds) and offers 20+ hours of portable playtime on a single charge. You can track the speaker’s battery life with the visual battery indicator located on the top panel.
BLUETOOTH 5.0 aptX
Kilburn II comes equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 aptX technology for wireless music play. Play music with any Bluetooth device at a range of up to 30 feet away from the speaker.
Kilburn II features multi-host functionality so you can easily connect and switch between two Bluetooth devices. Now you and a friend take turns playing what you want to hear.
UPDATED LOOKS AND ROADWORTHY DESIGN
In addition to larger-than-life sound, Kilburn II offers an updated look that enhances its roadworthy design. Embodying the legacy of rock ‘n’ roll, Kilburn II has a solid metal grille that pays homage to the steel mesh grille found on many microphones and a guitar inspired carrying strap for easy portability. Its flush mounted corner caps and IPX2 water-resistant design make it supremely rugged and durable.
Kilburn II will be available for purchase now for $299 at Marshall retailers around the world and online at marshallheadphones.com.
ABOUT MARSHALL HEADPHONES
Marshall is a true rock legend. A distinct and expressive sound combined with an iconic stage presence that has inspired music fans around the world for over five decades. This unparalleled amount of wisdom has been distilled and fused into every part of Marshall headphones and speakers. Nothing has been compromised when expanding the Marshall heritage of big stage performance to the individual enjoyment of good music.
The legacy began in a small Hanwell drum shop in 1962, where Jim Marshall sought to give a bunch of then-local guitarists the sound they wanted – a sound that was harder, crunchier and more rich. The result was the JTM45, an amp that reverberated with a sound that was much heavier than anything ever heard before. In a twist of rock and roll fate – those guitarists, much like the Marshall name, would go on to revolutionize music forever.
