House of Marley's new wireless version of its Smile Jamaica headphones continues the company's sustainable materials design aesthetic.
The lightweight Bluetooth in-ear buds incorporate “Regrind” recycled silicone, recycled aluminum alloy, and FSC-certified woods. The packaging is made from 100-percent recycled materials.
“Our goal was to build off the popularity of our existing Smile Jamaica headphones in order to create an in-ear Bluetooth headphone option without the need for a bulky housing,” said Josh Poulsen, product development director. “The Smile Jamaica Wireless’ slim, soft neckband is meant for all-day listening without sacrificing performance and sound.”
The headphones fold for storage, boast eight hours of battery life, and an in-line noise-isolating microphone.
Each headphone sold will count toward House of Marley's partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit dedicated to reforestation efforts worldwide. Each Marley product sold will contribute to the brand's goal of planting 75,000 trees within the next year.
“House of Marley is about bringing sustainability to the audio world. We take great pride in our efforts to work with materials that reduce our footprint on this planet,” commented brand ambassador Rohan Marley. “That is the heart of our #MaterialsMatter campaign; our story of using sustainable materials from organic cotton and bamboo to recycled plastic water bottles.
Smile Jamaica Wireless headphones retail for $60 and come in four color combinations.
