Marshall Headphones unveils London

Marshall London Android smartphone for audiophiles
Marshall London
This handset is one of its kind, offering rather average smartphone features, but also "might just be loudest phone on Earth" as mentioned by its makers in the official press release.

Marshall have been known for decades as makers of amplifiers and headphones, but it seems they finally decided to expand their operations and enter the smartphone market. As strange as it may seem, there is still room for newcomers who aim at small groups of people with special needs. This time, the Marshall London tries to take over the hearts (but especially ears) of audiophiles.

According to the official press release, "Marshall London delivers the promise of high-quality listening; thanks to its dual speakers using enhanced bass technology and the dedicated hifi-grade sound card. The London is capable of crystal-clear playback of lossless FLAC files, giving justice to your old music files." In addition to these, it is worth pointing out that London comes with excellent noise reduction when recording on the go, featuring two stereo jacks with individual volume controls on top, as well as a global wide equalizer.

The non-audio-related specs and features are average - a 4.7-inch multitouch 720p display, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 8 MP main camera, 4G LTE connectivity, a 2500 mAh power pack and a microSD slot. On top of all, it looks great and features a special button for quick access to the music library, not to mention the Marshall Mode in-ear headphones that come in the package that sells for roughly $590 USD and will begin shipping next month. 

Marshall London will reach 22 countries worldwide and can be already pre-ordered from the official website.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
