Marshall’s Most Portable Speakers Yet: Meet the Stockwell

Most Affordable One Too

Marshall officially introduced their newest speakers called the Marshall Stockwell at IFA in Berlin, Germany. This is Marshall’s “smallest” speakers yet and it can be considered the most portable among the lot. Prior to this Marshall has already released the venerable Marshall Hanwell (the biggest one) and their first wireless speakers, the Marshall Stanmore.

So what’s so special about this one? Other than better portability, the Stockwell still packs quite a punch. It has two 2.25 woofers, two-channel Class D amplifiers, and two 2.25 Dome Tweeters. Suffice to say this thing is still loud. It might not be as powerful as the Hanwell or the Stanmore but it should fill up a standard living room with music without compromising audio quality.

In terms of connectivity there’s Bluetooth 4.0 EDR and the standard 3.5mm audio jack. The speakers come with the usual Marshall 3.5mm cord which you can use to plug to your phone.

What’s new with this is that Marshall included a microphone (so you can use it as a speakerphone) and a USB port for charging. The Stockwell is also Marshall’s first rechargeable portable speakers. According to them it should have battery life of 25 hours before needing a charge.

The Stockwell is scheduled to hit the market later this year with a price tag of $229 (roughly Php10,300).

Since we have a trusty local distributor of Marshall here in the Philippines, we can actually expect to see this in Digital Walker or Beyond the Box store shelves soon.

  1. Always loved Marshall amps and their old school traditional design and sound. Seeing this on a portable bt speaker is pure awsome, i just hate how bt speakers are clad in plastic and comes in funny designs and they charge good money for it… yes Braven.. whats up
    Now i hope they price the Stockwell competitively. Mahal kang sobra kasi ng una nila speakers nila lumabas.

    1. Agree with you, especially on the design. Most speakers these days look really generic. Marshall has a good chance of selling a lot of these locally IF the local distributor sticks closely to the announced SRP.

  2. JBLs BTs feels n sounds legit, esp jbl has a good reputation in HT n car audio, i owned a jbl mono amp n sub too before it was a good start for me n great value for money. Whereas Braven had a bt speaker that looks n feels like a barbie doll acc. N they want almost 5k for it… id go for the jbl charge 1 or flip any time.
    Nothing against braven, but really?
