Marshall is without a doubt know for their amps, with probably the most recognizable amps in all of rock and roll. In an effort to broaden their horizons, Marshall is getting into the smart phone business with a phone that is exclusively targeted towards music lovers. The Android powered phone called 'Marshall London' is the self-proclaimed loudest phone on Earth, with two front facing speakers, you shouldn't have to use headphones to listen to music on this phone, that is assuming you want everyone around you to hear your music. With a few cool add-ons that no other Android phone has, this music focused smart phone might just stir the pot of the already over-populated Android smart phone arena.
On top of the amazing set of speakers, the Marshall London also packs a few more tricks up its sleeve with the so called M button that is a one button push to get to your music, along with a scroll wheel on the side of the phone to control the music to give you extreme precision to give you that perfect amount of volume you're craving. The smart phone is also equipped with two audio jacks that allow you and a friend to listen to music or watch a movie together without the need for an audio splitter to be on-hand.
The global equalizer app that the Marshall phone comes with is pre-loaded with profiles, or you can create your own profiles so you can listen to the music however you want. The global equalizer will apply your selected profile to whichever music player you use. Simply press the M button to quickly get to the equalizer. The Marshall phone also comes pre-loaded with a DJ-app and the Loopstack app which is a 4 track music recorder.
