Today, we have brand new and surprisingly affordable in-ear headphones from House of Marley, a tribute store of sorts to the legend himself. As it is with most of what the House of Marley puts out, the earphones are made from eco-friendly materials.
The Uplift In-Ear Headphones go for a two-tone look, pairing recyclable aluminum with Forest Stewardship Council-certified sapele or beechwood. The silicone ear tips, which come in three sizes, match the color of the aluminum to complete the look. The cord is 52” and braided, so you shouldn’t need to worry too much about tangling. The audio itself is coming from 8 mm moving coil drivers, which House of Marley asserts will provide ‘clean, crisp sound with powerful bass.’
There will be three styles available – drift, grand, and midnight. Drift will be grey aluminum with a natural wood finish, midnight will be black aluminum with a natural wood finish, and grand will be gold aluminum with a black finish on the wood. The Uplift In-Ear Headphones will be available with or without an in-line three-button microphone, for $40 and $30, respectively.
