Marshall Motif ANC earbuds review: Style over substance

Marshall's disctinctive black-and-leather looks are present and correct on its earbuds. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
They're actually taken a bit too far on the 'buds themselves, which have a scratchy finish on the stem which isn't so comfortable. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
They sound very solid in your ear, though, with great balanced sound and decent active noise cancellation. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Battery life could be better at 4.5 hours with ANC on, and the ear detection is very hit and miss. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
We also think the looks will be right up some people's street, but we don't love their aesthetic too much. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
They're also launching into a really competitive market at this price. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Still, they're far from bad - if you're a Marshall fan these could be worth considering. For everyone else, we think there are better alternative. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
