Critic Reviews


Phone Scoop

It can blast your tunes to the max

from Phone Scoop

The metal grille, leather strap, and black vinyl give it a 70s feel that hides the fine-tuned system within. The Kilburn II is tough as nails, thanks to the rugged build. If you're looking for something to appease your inner rock star, the Kilburn II sounds great and delivers some of the best battery life for a portable speaker.

TechHive

Great sound and nostalgic design

from TechHive

If it weren't for the $300 price, we'd have no complaints about this portable Bluetooth speaker. It's basic, but offers the nostalgic and iconic Marshall Amp styling. More importantly, it sounds very good.

Apple Insider

A rugged portable speaker for your inner rocker

from Apple Insider

Kilburn II isn't the smallest portable speaker out there. Even in Marshall's lineup, the Stockwell is a smaller option. However, the larger size gets you impressively loud and great sounding audio and a phenomenal battery life.

The Bluetooth blaster

from Pocket-lint

While the Kilburn II delivers powerful sound output and has quirky bass/treble controls, its sound profile isn't the most deft nor cleanest listen in its class. But for that wonderful wall-of-sound wrapped into a retro design, it's hard to beat.

TrustedReviews

A stylish speaker with sound worthy of the Marshall name

from TrustedReviews

Let’s face it – you’re here because of the looks. For collectors of rockcessory, the Marshall Kilburn II will do very nicely. But it’s also a fun listen. It isn’t the most subtle or delicate speaker out there, but it has power and dynamism, which makes for an entertaining experience.

Stuff

A rocking little speaker that can be surprisingly polite too

from Stuff

The idea of a Marshall speaker sounds like it could be a bit of a gimmick, an amp-stack-shaped thing for a teenager’s bedroom. Its Marshall Kilburn II shows this really isn’t the case, though. This is a serious wireless speaker with big, energetic sound and an attractive, practical design, with plenty of that classic Marshall whiff.

Simplifies the features, tones down the look but tunes up the sound

from T3

By streamlining the Kilburn's looks, stripping back the features and beefing up the sound, Marshall makes its best speaker to date

Small and mighty

from TechRadar

Marshall’s Kilburn II is a fantastic update to its bestselling predecessor, with a stunning retro amp-inspired design and a well-rounded sound. While the bass can be a little muddy at times, it’s excellent for playing guitar music, and its portability means the Kilburn II is great for taking on the road.

Loud and proud, but still manages to sound sweet and bal-anced

from Digital Trends

We like the Marshall Kilburn II. It’s got musical guts, a surprisingly sweet and balanced sound that you wouldn’t expect from the styling, and the image given by the tattooed folk that regularly promote the brand’s products in ads. If there’s a problem, it’s the price. It’s a serious $300, or 270 British pounds.

Sure to be a favourite with Rock 'n' Roll fans

from Mirror

Overall, the Kilburn II is one of the best portable speakers I’ve tested. Both the design and sound quality are fantastic, and I think the Kilburn II could easily take pride of place in your living room - let alone on the go.
