Marshall Mode EQ
In-ear headphones with in-line remote, EQ switch, and microphone
Our take on the Marshall Mode EQ by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Choose your bass
The Marshall Mode EQ's in-line remote includes an EQ switch for extra bass.
Marshall has spent decades helping guitar players dial in their unique sound. Now, their Mode EQ earbuds let you get great sound on the go, with an EQ switch on the in-line remote to adjust the bass to your preference. The 9mm drivers ensure the default sound setting is pretty lively. But if you like your bass even heavier? Flick the EQ switch up to get a low-end boost that sounds natural and powerful.
Find the right fit
For in-ear headphones, a better fit usually leads to better sound and comfort, and bigger bass. Each Mode EQ earbud has an off-center "anchor" design. This prevents too much pressure on your ears while still creating a snug seal.
Marshall's included four sizes of ear tips, to help ensure a good fit. These tips are designed to stay put, feel good, and keep you listening happily.
Classic Marshall look
These earbuds sport a design that's all Marshall. The black and bronze color scheme evokes images of the company's legendary guitar amps. You'll find the full iconic logo sketched across the in-line remote, along with the Marshall "M" designed into the earpieces. And that remote includes the EQ switch, plus a separate button to skip through tracks, play, and pause music.
Answers calls, too
The Marshall Mode EQ earbuds have a tangle-free cord with a built-in microphone for easy hands-free conversations. It works with an iPhone® as well as most models of Android™ phones. If a call comes through, leave the earbuds in and just punch the button on the remote. You can hear the caller, and they'll hear you.
