Marshall has announced the Motif ANC and Minor III true wireless earbuds, the former being the brand’s first earbuds to offer active noise cancellation.

The Motif ANC features customisable noise cancelling and a transparency mode, which can both be accessed through a companion app. It also has IPX5 water resistance, dual microphones for taking calls and touch controls. On a full charge, the earbuds offer four and a half hours of playback.

According to Marshall, the charging case offers an additional 20 hours of battery life on standby while a quick 15-minute charge gives the earbuds an hour of playtime. Both the earbuds and charging case take about three hours to charge fully.

The Minor III, on the other hand, is touted as a straightforward pair of wireless earbuds with Marshall sound and look. This pair skips ANC, but keeps the touch controls and offers IPX4 water resistance and a five-hour battery. With the charging case, users get an additional 20 hours of playtime.

The Marshall Motif ANC launches on 30 September for $199/£180 a set, and you can pre-order them now. Meanwhile, the Minor III earbuds are now available at $129/£119.
