On February 5, 2012 during the Super Bowl half-time show, electro-pop duo LMFAO appeared with Madonna sporting a pair of diamond-encrusted Beats headphones by Dr. Dre valued at $1,000,000 (yes, you read correctly: 1 million dollars). Although Dr. Dre has not been the only one to capitalize on his fame to promote his headphones, his Beats have certainly achieved the most widespread publicity and have become a sort of status symbol. Yet slashing through the glimmering opulence and excess that celebrity headphones have come to represent, the House of Marley product line in collaboration with Bob Marley’s 1Love Foundation dares listeners to challenge the status-quo and join a global fight for education, sustainability, and peace.
From production to the packaging process, the House of Marley focuses on supplying headphones that achieve superior sound quality and equally admirable humanitarian goals. Every House of Marley product is packaged with recyclable material, constructed of recyclable aluminum, and organically harvested cotton–all this while delivering a powerful and soulful sound.
Moreover, all House of Marley products directly contribute to the mission of the 1Love Foundation. Through a series of partnerships with global charities, the 1Love Foundation actively contributes to causes such as providing potable drinking water to people in developing countries and promoting maternal and child health worldwide.
Instead of using celebrity as a mere marketing tool to increase profit, the House of Marley in collaboration with the 1Love Foundation employ the vision of Bob Marley and the large Marley family to empower individuals and throughout the world and actualize social equality through education.
In his song “Exodus,” Bob Marley shouts the lyrics, “Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living?” For Marley, satisfaction could only be found by struggling for harmony among all people. If your calling is the same, the House of Marley product line is a great place to begin your journey or nourish it.
