The Vision of Bob Marley’s Music Lives Through House of Marley Headphones

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.

The Exodus series, composed of recyclable materials and sustainably harvested woods, exemplifies the production ethics of the House of Marley

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.


Monster Cable Beats by Dr. Dre

The bar has been raised, and it’s just what the doctor ordered. The new Monster Cable Beats by Dr. Dre, or “Beats by Dre,” are the latest must-have set of headphones. Featuring flawless sound reproduction and a hot-look, these headphones are the elite pair on the market. Famous hip hop producer Dr. Dre was in the lab for three years with Monster designing the Beats. Dr. Dre is quoted in TIME magazine as saying his goal in creating the Beats was to give people a way to “hear what the artists hear and listen to the music the way they should – the way I do.” Mission accomplished: Beats by Dre are studio quality headphones that are compact enough to be practical for everyday use. The headphones can be folded into a small carrying case for transport.

Monster Beats by Dre are especially convenient for music phone owners, because these headphones include an iSonitalk cable. This cable allows you to pause your music while answering calls with your iPhone or other music phones. These headphones have other cool playback controls. For example, you can also mute your music with one tap of the ear piece, and tap it once more to turn the sound back on.

In comparison to other headphones, The Beats are unique in that they are internally amplified, which results in incomparable high-definition sound quality. They also feature a cutting-edge driver design which gives an unmatched level of precise audio clarity, and the sizeable speaker drivers generate deafeningly deep bass.
