If you haven’t heard about House of Marley yet, here what you need to know in a nutshell: the company was created in collaboration with the Marley family in an effort to continue to preserve Bob Marley’s legacy. Not only are their headphones made from high-quality materials but they also contribute to the House of Marley’s charitable efforts.
All of the company’s products are manufactured from socially-responsible materials such as FSC certified wood, upcycled fabrics and recycled silicone, plastics, bamboo and packaging.
In addition, House of Marley also makes a yearly contribution to One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization that focuses on global reforestation – up to date, House of Marley has helped plant no less than 168,000 trees since 2017!
Not bad, don’t you think?
House of Marley takes its give-back platform seriously and, in support of Earth Day, set for April 22nd, the company will donate to One Tree Planted yet again and contribute to planting trees in Colorado, Kenya and Rwanda. This contribution follows another localized tree-planting project that took place in Los Angeles, California last month, which aims to fight the urban heat island effect.
In addition to doing their best to upcycle and recycle all the materials used to manufacture its trademark headphones, House of Marley’s latest addition to the collection, the Exodus, comes with a whooping 30 hour battery life and has been designed and engineered with 50mm high-definition drivers.
The headphones were, of course, crafted from FSC certified wood, recyclable aluminium and natural leather and the Bluetooth LE technology allows you to pair them with your device of choice in no time while also offering extended range and lower power consumption.
The ear cushions are made out of Memory Foam, the hinge folds for optimum portability and the headphones also feature an on-board microphone for hands-free calling and voice command activation as well as remote functionality, which allows the users to control volume and playback even if their source device is out of reach.
Of course, an aux cable is also included in the package, just in case.
“We aimed to design an over-ear headphone that can be listened to for long periods without discomfort or acoustic fatigue, offers premium construction and incorporates sustainable materials while focusing on heritage and retro-inspired design elements,” House of Marley Director of Product Development, Josh Poulsen, said. “In the case of the Exodus, sustainability means more than just the materials from which the headphone is constructed. The quality of craftsmanship means product life is extended and the emphasis on comfort allows the user to sustain longer listening sessions.”
The House of Marley Exodus headphones are already available on Amazon so go grab them and aid the company into adding a few more much-needed trees to the world.
