The Sound to Satisfy Your Soul

The newest trend brightening up our wardrobes this season is neon. What better way to emphasize your spring style savvy than by accessorizing with an unlikely source: headphones. New on the scene and perfect for an added dose of color is a pair by House of Marley. With fun colors to choose from and an inspiring message, these headphones are sure to keep you on par with the brightest trend of the season.

From the family of Bob Marley, House of Marley brings musical electronics that are founded on the principals and philosophies of the music legend. Rooted in the famous saying coined by Bob Marley, “One Love,” House of Marley is dedicated to passing on his teachings to a new generation of music listeners. Bob Marley’s son, Rohan Marley, explains, “The House of Marley was created from the belief in my father’s vision of one love … My father helped start a movement around three simple ideas: youth, planet and peace.” He added, “That message needed to be taken to the next generation and what better way than through music. We wanted to enter the electronic world through personal audio products to keep the message going.”

In keeping with the family’s core values, the headphones are created using sustainably sourced, FSC-certified woods; organic cotton; and recyclable aluminum, while still carrying premium sound in both bass and treble. “It’s all about one love and giving back by using recycled materials and being earth-friendly,” Marley said. “We at The House of Marley want to deliver the best audio experience possible without compromising the environment.” And the company’s efforts for improving the world don’t stop there. According to Marley, House of Marley donates five percent of its annual profits to 1Love, a global movement sparked by the Marley family that provides funding to charities in sync with the company’s ethos. “It’s not enough to be earth-friendly, we need to support programs that support youth, planet and peace,” explained the reggae icon’s son.

Perfect for the trends of spring and summer, the headphones are available in an array of bright and vivid colors and can add an electric pop to any outfit from color block casual to gym glam. Offering in-ear headphones, on-ear headphones, over the ear headphones and audio systems, House of Marley products can be purchased at House of Marley, Karmaloop and Dogfunk.
