Marshall claims these on-ear wi-fi headphones get around 30 hours of battery life on a single charge — sure, 30 hours — when used at medium quantity ranges (based on the packaging).

I averaged around 28 hours on a single charge utilizing a mixture of streaming from my laptop and my phone, and tried to stay across the medium quantity mark, however, in fact, you possibly can’t assist however crank a good tune from time to time. The max time we had been in a position to get out of them was simply over 31 hours on maximum volume the whole time — and no, they weren’t on my ears during that check as a result of loudness. Considering the box itself says the 30 hours was “calculated with randomly chosen music content material enjoying at medium quantity,” our tests are undoubtedly in line — and even exceeded — with Marshall’s claims. To say that is the business commonplace is an understatement, as (if memory serves me accurately) essentially the most I’ve been in a position to get out of a wi-fi headset before now is around 18 hours on a single charge, with most lasting around 10-12 hours. Including one other 16-18 hours to the typical is, in fact, extremely improbable. On the charging side, it takes about 4 hours to recharge the headphones again as much as full.
