While Apple didn't announce any new AirPods at its September iPhone 13 release event, rock-inspired brand Marshall is out with two new sets of true wireless earbuds.

Marshall's newest earbuds are the Motif ANC and the Minor III and they have rough shapes similar to that of the AirPods Pro and AirPods.

Minor III

Marshall's entry-level Minor III earbuds have 12mm drivers that were custom-tuned to deliver Marshall's signature sound with "enhanced bass, smooth mids, and clear highs."

Marshall Minor III earbuds

They charging case and earbuds combo boast up to 25 hours of total playtime with five hours per earbud set charge. The charging case is powered over USB-C or wirelessly via Qi. Other features include IPX4 water resistance and touch-sensitive controls.

The Marshall Minor III earbuds are available now for $129 from Marshall directly as well as Amazon.

Motif ANC

Then we have the Motif ANC. The premium offering brings active noise cancellation and adjustable EQ with the companion app. The level of ANC can be set within the app, as can the level of transparency when letting in external sound.

Battery life is rated at 4.5 hours at once and a total of 20 hours when combined with the wireless charging case. This high-end set also has stronger IPX5 water resistance.

The Marshall Motif ANC earbuds are available for preorder now for $199 from Marshall directly and begin shipping September 30.
