The light evenings and warm days of summer are behind us and so, therefore, are festivals. Once the cold weather sets in, it’s easy to forget that you ever danced in the middle of a field in a T-shirt (or less) in the early hours of the morning. Now, that kind of caprice has been replaced by a warm mug of something and a blanket. One thing remains the same, though: music.

During fall and winter, our love of music doesn’t falter, we just don’t have as many places to enjoy it. Instead of hitting public spaces, we’ve got used to finding our vibe privately. That’s why we’re calling fall and winter album season. It’s all about settling in with your favorite album, or maybe one you’ve yet to explore, and enjoying it from start to finish.

Key to this experience is, obviously, good sound quality. For that, we’re opting for Marshall’s Motif A.N.C., but they’re accompanied by some peripheral pleasures that optimize the vibe. From blankets to diffusers, keep scrolling to see what a comprehensive album season kit looks like.

Your starting point has to be your listening device. Without a great listening experience, you can kiss album season goodbye. We're entering album season 2022 with a pair of Marshall Motif A.N.C. earphones. They're small, but a sealed-fit design and active noise cancellation mean that the sound is a whole lot bigger than you might imagine.
