Marshall Kilburn Bluetooth Speaker, Excellent Sound

I bought this for my cousin and he loved it.

This speaker is a fantastic piece of kit. If you love music you won’t be disappointed.

Well you certainly get what you pay for, i’ve messed about with all sorts of blu tooth speakers and this is by far the best. The sound is excellent the build quality is superb ( be warned however it is quite heavy ) the packaging and instructions superb. All round a class piece of kit. You absolutely won’t regret the outlay.

“Marshall sound Marshall quality
, More portable than Nelson’s Column.
, Great sound, design, and battery life

It worked really well the day i got it, i could use bluetooth to connect it with my iphone, eventhough i couldnt connet it with my laptop, but it’s fine. However, the day after, it couldnt connet to my iphone anymore, and i don’t know why. I tried to restart my iphone and the speaker, but still.

Great sound, great everything, except the cables don’t come with a uk three pin plug, luckily it came charged but will have to buy new plug lead.

Many of my musician friends have agreed too. Unfortunately it came with a plug for europe/usa. I’m in ireland and ordered from amazon uk so i was expecting a uk plug. Had to get one separately which was fairly cheap. Other than that, was a wise purchase and good sound compared to other similar speakers.

Styling, build quality and sound quality all excellent. Superb product and would recommend without hesitation. We will use this everywhere – kitchen, bathroom, holidays, garden.

Looks fantastic and sounds great too. The sound is definitely tailored toward rock genres, rather than edm (which is fine with me). I would personally have liked a little more adjustment on the treble, but bass is solid and build quality is exceptional. I’m sure i’ll be annoying the neighbours for many happy hours.

Connects to bluetooth well and lasts ages on battery. Had it in the corner at our wedding reception throwing out tunes. Exceptional build quality and everyone loved it. Very good and if for any reason we need another speaker we would look to get another one of these. Looks great and sound great.

Love the carry handle and will built feel to it.

As far as portable speakers go this is not portable. We are using this as a static speaker that we can move to the garden if we want. We do own a couple of ue megabooms and these we would consider the competition in terms of volume, the ue version is portable. It is rugged, waterproof and seems to have been designed to be taken out of the house. The kilburn however we would not take out of the house, in theory we could but we probably wouldn’t. Why we would not use it as a portable speaker?- it charges via a figure of eight cord not usb- it’s not waterproof- it’s bulky (but admittedly not too heavy)- it has knobs and switches that seem that they would not like being bashed around**final verdict**with that said it is a good speaker. It sound better than the ue megaboom it has a much warmer more realistic sound and the directional nature obviously helps it create that, also having analogue bass and treble controls is great and the design overall is nice. It’s lovely having reals knobs and switches, anyway i digress. As a fixed speaker that you can move to a different are i would recommend it and seeing as that is how we are using it that is why i have rated it 5 stars. However as an alternative to a genuine portable speaker (ue,jbl, bose, etc.

Bought it instead of sonos 1 and no regrets.Does exactly what it should loud enough treble and bass regulators helpsreason to change it from sonos 1 was that available only wi-fi and not really what i was looking for. Here you got bluetooth and aux that make it much more comfortable to use whenever you need quick connection though the aux or distance connection though bluetooth.

First class piece of equipment. I use this wired to my classic 160gb i player and the sound quality through the complete range is excellent. It’s great to have bass and treble controls for the different types of music i enjoy, from art blakely to marilyn manson. Also the unit has a great look and feel to it.

Brilliantjust love itvery happy to own this magnificent piece of kitsounds are just stupendous.

Great sound, i was very surprised, i had a jambox before but this is far superior. I didn’t want a static speaker around the home so this is perfect to move from room to room. Fills the entire room and i don;t even have to have it on very loud on the volume.

Power lead but the sound is incredible.

Great sound makes your digital music sound fantastic with deep base and crisp treble. I’ve had a few bluetooth speakers in the past but this blew me away on sound quality.

Others are more compact, but if the extra size is what enables it to sound this good then its well worth it. You wonder where on earth the bass is coming from. Most people will prefer the black exterior version i reckon, but everybody will love the classy controls, the super-easy pairing, and the bl**dy amazing sound.

Flipping epic, sister in-law is putting this bad boy through its tracks. . Battery is easily over 20hrs and does not drop in quality or umpf. Very very please with this purchase. Only once did the bluetooth not connect so had to turn the unit off as the phone had connected previously but had not cleared this connection. Very high quality and nicely made.

I use it for practising dancing in a large gymnasium and it is definitely up to the job. I love the simple on/ off switch and not having a remote control. I am so pleased with it that i highly recommend it.

I spent a good while watching reviews on speakers, and not only does the marshall kilburn look timeless, it sounds sublime. Watch reviews all you like, when you buy something like this you just end up falling in love with it.

This bluetooth speaker is excellent. The packaging is of a high quality. The actual speaker sounds great. The look of the speaker is top class. It’s not too big to move around and is of a decent weight. Has great bass, it’s not overpowering perfect for playing any type of music.

Didn’t clock it but batteries do last many hours. I have been using it with ipad and iphone via bluetooth or cable connection, quick device pairing, no issues at all. It sounds good for its size and it does look really good. I am using this almost every day.

I love the build quality of the speaker the appearance of the speaker looks as good as it does the quality of the switches and volume gear is excellent sound is awesome even if a little busy the only dislike i have is it goes to sleep (which for saving battery is good) however, for use with alexa or google home it doesn’t wake up automatically after the commands. I love the fact that it’s got a replaceable battery there’s a lot of weight in this product it’s well built and the battery life is really good so far.

One thought on “Marshall Kilburn Bluetooth Speaker, Excellent Sound

  1. 1.0 out of 5 stars The sound quality is excellent but the battery has only lasted one year on said:
    I have had this speaker for one year and the battery is not holding its charge as well. The sound quality is excellent but the battery has only lasted one year. Marshall, who promote replacement batteries, do not provide or sell replacement batteries. In fact marshall customer services state that amazon is not an authorised seller of their speakers. Wtf?i paid a lot of money for a portable speaker which turns out to have a short lifespan because you can not buy replacement batteries. My only option is to return the speaker to marshal, for their specialists to check out and advise from there. This speaker has turned out to be an expensive item that once the battery dies is no longer portable and must be connected to a power socket. Not a very good product if you require reliability and portability.

  2. Out of the box looks stunning, paired up easy, sound is awesome, abillity to fine tune sound manually via old skool knobs, master stroke. Sound is awesome, for me much better than the bose sl mini ii ( i own 1 ). Is twice the size of the bsl but for me when both put side by side wins hands down. Sound is warmer & fuller at all sound levels from 1 to 10. When turned up to 10 sound does not break up or distort. I will be buying the riva s soon so will soon find out which is the daddy of small bluetooth boiyz.

      • This item came with an internal battery that is supposed to work for 20 hours after being charged. It needs a replacement battery.

    It is unique, gorgeous, sounds great, and the battery lasts ages. The downsides are portability (but i didn’t buy it to carry it around everywhere, so i don’t care about this) and that it has to be switched on to charge. I love the physical knobs too, and the carry strap is strong and nice to the touch. One of the more expensive speakers in its category but it feels worth the money.

    • This speaker is small but it produces big things. The main reason for buying all the series of the marshall speakers is their vintage look which is amazing and also the sound and quality. This is perfect for travelling, in the flat or in the car. It comes with three types of chargers : uk, ue, usa.
