Given its "water-resistance" label, the opening image of the Marshall Emberton Portable Speaker being given the water-boarding treatment could be a stretch. But its actually accurate given its IPX7 rating, which allows the Emberton model to be submerged in a metre of water for up to 30 minutes. Also, the opener makes for an arresting visual but we digress…
Aside from its IPX7 water-resistance, the Emberton also boasts other features within its portable frame. One of which is True Stereophonic, a multi-directional effect that delivers 360° sound. There's also the separation of spatial content from stereo recordings allowing for a speaker of this size to produce sound that's louder and larger.
With its durable exterior, the Emberton has a quick charge feature (20 minutes that gives you five hours of power) and 20+ hours of playtime. Bluetooth-enabled and weighing at 700 gram, the speaker fits easily in your palm. And you know, what else is easy? The easy-to-use multi-directional control knob that does all the stuff that other run-of-the-mill control knobs can do… except, you know, easier.
