marshall launches mode, acton and woburn at beyond the box

It's no secret that I am a big music geek. I often share my favorite songs on Twitter via the hashtag: #fashioneggplantradio.

In fact, back when wikipedia and google were non-existent, I served as my friends own personal "SoundHound".  They used to call me a jukebox because I most certainly could tell them the title of the song stuck in their head just by telling me a single line. Haha! That's another talent of mine that I'm proud of. I am super passionate about it and I love all genres but my first love will always be rock.

Which brings us to one of my favorite bands of the 80s-90s: Guns N' Roses. Just as iconic as his wild hair and Gibson guitar is Slash's stack of Marshall amps. They are synonymous with each other. And not just him, most of my other idols are often snapped with Marshall too: Clapton, Joe Perry, Angus Young, Zakk Wylde, etc.

I was obsessed with anything Marshall. Stickers, T-shirts, etc.

I still am. Which is why I made it a point to attend the launch of their new headphones and speakers at Beyond The Box in Century Mall a couple of days ago.

Seriously, as a blogger, when you're in love with a brand, you don't care wether or not you'll get something in return. You just want to be there and get first dibs info.

That's how I felt but I was also hoping to at least win something. :P

marshall unveils new products
The invite said to bring any form of rock memorabilia for a chance to win a prize. I brought my signed America LP, Bowie official concert tour shirt from 1986 + a few other vinyls. I felt pretty good about what I had until I saw this guy with a pair of signed drumsticks by Juan dela Cruz's drummer. I lost and was pretty heartbroken about it cause he won a Marshall Speaker (crayola!!!hahaha).

So anyway, back to the products at hand...

The event was held to introduce the new Marshall Mode, Mode EQ headphones and the Acton  and Woburn Speakers:

Just like the glory days of rock ‘n’ roll, the Woburn is all about freedom, allowing you to play your music multiple ways. Make your music come alive, the Woburn is crafted to deliver accurate response throughout the frequency range. With its unique sound and design and quality components, the Woburn is built to thrill.

This loudspeaker hits high trebles cleanly, handles low bass with ease, and has a clear and lifelike mid range. The analog treble, bass, and volume knobs give you custom control of your sound. With two standby modes, powersaver and standard, it also minimizes the speaker’s environmental impact when not actively in use. The overall experience is powerfully rendered music full of punch and drive.

Marshall Mode and Mode EQ both offer a huge sound in a small package.
Customized drivers deliver high-output sound at minimal distortion, and the unique in-ear design anchors and provides a comfortable fit. The Mode comes in black with white brass while the Mode EQ comes in black with gold brass. They both have a remote feature with an updated wire clip, which allows you to easily attach the headphones to your T-shirt.

The Mode EQ features a unique EQ switch on the remote, allowing you to customize your sound experience even more. It lets you choose between two sound steps  EQ I, if you like a warmer, bass-heavy sound, and EQ II, if you prefer music brighter, with an emphasis on mids and highs.

Completing the ultimate set-up in your home or office, this pint-sized speaker will bring style and sound to even the smallest of spaces.

The Acton’s powerful deep bass seems to defy the laws of nature for its small size. Its  Hi-Fi qualities packed into a classically designed and compact frame  set the Acton apart, positioned to take on even the largest of competitors. Acton’s custom control 3 analogue interaction knobs allow you to fine tune it to the exact sound you desire.

 Whew! What a long post. Anyway, to sum it all up...

To the average person, Marshall's prices may seem a bit inflated but I tell you, the only way to really justify it is by going to a store and sampling it yourself. Prepare to be blown away.
For audiophiles, Marshall is a pretty reasonable choice for great sounding speakers and headphones. They're much cheaper than other brands but sound just as good, if not better.
The output is ultra-clear and the "twang" of each guitar strum is delivered pure as if you're listening to it live. Put some Clapton on and enjoy these new products by Marshall.

You can get a hold of the new Marshall headphones and speakers at: Astroplus, Avid Surfer, Beyond the Box, BZB Gadget Hive, Cebu Audiophile, Complink, Digital Arena, Digital Hub, Digital Walker, E-Central, Egghead, Heima, iCenter, iCon, iStore, iStudio, Lazada (online), Listen Up, Listening Room, Mobile 1, Odyssey, PC Hub, PowerHub, Quicksound, Republik, Senco Link, SM Music & Video, Spectra, Stored Inc, Switch, Sync, Technoholics, TechSavvy, TechShop, and Technopop.
