At CES 2015, we were invited inside the House of Marley to check out their new lineup of eco-friendly headphones and speaker systems. We came away impressed enough to declare it “perhaps the most wonderful half hour I spent at the show.” The company is, “Deeply rooted in Bob Marley’s vision of consciousness, upliftment and change…” adhering to those principals when crafting sustainable and sonically superior products.
And now, those products are ready for consumption.
The House of Marley has announced the availability of several of the audio products they debuted at CES 2015, including in-ear and on-ear headphones and Bluetooth speakers. The products continue to incorporate House of Marley’s exclusive, upcycled fabric called REWIND™—a blend of recycled plastic bottles (rPET), organic cotton and reclaimed hemp. Combined with other earthy-friendly materials, they offer beauty and durability while allowing the user to maintain an earth-conscious peace-of-mind.
Leading the way is the Chant™ Mini ($49.99), a miniature Bluetooth® speaker featuring 1 x 3w – 1.5” driver and passive radiator that transform this mini miracle into a world of sound. Made from earth-friendly exclusive REWIND™ fabric and blended eco-plastic and aluminum housings with natural bamboo detailing, it also features a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides 6 hours of wireless playback.
Also noteworthy is the introduction of Roar™ on-ear headphones ($29.99). Premium headphones with a striking design, both feature powerful 40mm driver with A2DP stereo audio for unmatched sound quality.
