Connection quality

I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with SBC.

 

I don't know because I haven't been in crowds, but it is stable in the home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. There was a momentary interruption when a barrier was inserted, but then the music could be heard consistently.

 

There may be a small amount of background noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

 

Interface/operation

The operating interface is a touch type.

 

Power ON Open the lid of the charging case and take out the earphones
Power OFF Store the earphones in the charging case.
Pairing Open the lid of the charging case and press and hold the pairing button on the case
Play song Tap the multi-function button once
Stop playback Tap the multifunction button once
Forward song Tap the multi-function button twice
Backward Tap the multi-function button three times
Answer call Tap the multi-function button once
End call Tap the multi-function button once
Switch between ANC and Hear-Through Press and hold the multi-function button

Sound quality description

The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with a SBC connection.

 

Marshall Motif A.N.C has a neutral and near flat sound signature.

 

Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.

Lows / Bass

The low end of the Marshall Motif A.N.C. extends relatively deep, but not much deeper.

 

The drums are not badly weighted and have a certain impact, but the rumble is a bit lacking.

 

The electric bass is also rather black, but lacks a little more sink.

 

In terms of presence, the balance is almost balanced with the midrange, or a little weaker. Low-frequency lovers will find it a bit lacking.

Mids

The midrange of the Marshall Motif A.N.C. is adjusted fairly close to neutral and the texture is almost perfect.

 

As is typical of Marshall, a guitar amp manufacturer, there is an emphasis in the upper midrange to mid-highs, and the distortion around guitar edges has been adjusted to increase. This adjustment makes the guitar edges and snare sound a little harder, more contoured, shiny, and impressive. The attack of the snare is clearly audible and the bite of the guitar is quite lively, but it may tend to be a little too sharp. The sibilance is also a bit strong, and the vocals tend to sound sharp in the "t" and "s" consonants. The lyrics are easy to understand because they sound crisp, but many people may get the impression that it is a bit aggressive and lacks softness.

 

The center of the midrange is sufficiently low distorted and well resolved to sound quite clear, but the upper midrange is a bit rich and atmospheric as the sound spreads into space due to distortion.

Highs / Treble

Although the extension is a bit lacking, the highs are adjusted rather smoothly.

 

Subtlety and detail are not bad, and the highs sound rather monitor-like, but the cymbal crash spread could have been a bit higher to achieve a more galloping sound.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original sound fidelity: A+
  • Recommendation: A
  • Personal preference: B+

 

The Mode II was also quite good, but the Motif A.N.C has the same sound balance, resolution, and use of distortion that made the electric guitars sound as delicious as ever.
