Marshall has added voice control to its most popular pair of headphones, the Major III Voice, through the addition of Google Assistant capability.
Now, wearers can use their voice to control playback, including music, phone calls, and answers to queries. Press and hold the voice button to tell the Assistant to play your favourite playlist, songs, artists, albums, or podcasts, read your text messages or the news, or give you directions while on-the-go.
In addition to music playback and staying in touch, you can get answers about the weather, traffic, reminders, and more.
Major III Voice offers an impressive up to 60 hours of wireless playtime on a single charge and features 40 mm dynamic drivers that have been optimised and carefully tuned to give improved sound characteristics. With a straight fit headband, slim 3D hinges, and soft ear cushions, they also include thicker loop wires with reinforced rubber dampers.
A multi-directional control knob can be used to play, pause, shuffle, and adjust volume, as well as power your headphones on or off. Phone functionality is also included so you can answer, reject, or end a call with a few clicks.
Marshall's Major III Voice is available for pre-order now for US$169 and will be available at retail starting October 16.
