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.

Having the right tools for the job is always one of the most important aspects of any job. If you have ever tried to install some new car speakers without the appropriate tools, the job seems almost impossible to complete. On the reverse end of that, when the installer has the appropriate tools the job becomes quick and easy. The correct tools will always make the task at hand easier and get done faster. Just like tools, the correct equipment can ensure that the work gets done properly and to the expectations. For DJs, this equipment comes in the form of mixers, turntables, loudspeakers, and headphones.
Headphones are one of the most over looked (and underestimated) pieces of equipment for a DJ. The headphones are the first stop as the music leaves the turntable. Before the crowd hears it, the DJ listens closely to the music to ensure it is exactly what he wants. That’s were the Monster Beats Pro by Dr. Dre headphones come into play. These headphones quickly become the DJs best friend. They have large oversized ear cushions that are not only comfortable, but also washable. That means that after several shows and getting sweaty behind the turntable you can still keep the headphones clean, sanitary, and looking new. The swivel ear cup serves a few different purposes. The swivel allows for the DJ to keep a secure headphone fit, while being able to hear what is going on around him. However, the swivel also has a secondary function. When one cup is removed from the ear, the other ear cup that remains on the ear switches to a mono speaker. That means that both the right and left channels of audio are going to one ear cup. Since the DJ only has the one ear listening to the music, this means that they will not miss any part of the music and can continue to mix accurately.
Overall the construction of the Monster Cable Beats Pro is very solid and durable. They will easily be able to take anything that the professional DJ has in store for it. While the standard headphone is black, Monster is offering two colors: Black and White Monster Beat Pro. Don’t miss out any longer. If you are a professional and headphones are important to you, these are not a pair you want to pass up.
