House of Marley has announced the launch of its flagship Bob Marley 75th anniversary $200 Redemption ANC (active noise cancellation) wireless earbuds. The release also marks the 10th anniversary of the “sustainably-minded audio maker dedicated to superior quality, innovative eco-conscious materials, and charitable causes.”
The new earbuds are made with “earth-friendly” materials including bamboo and recycled ‘REGRIND’, a form of silicone generated from consumer tech waste. The case uses wood derivatives including sawdust, along with plastic fibers to fashion a wood composite material. The earbuds promise to deliver punchy bass combined with a warm and natural feel, and the passive seal and noise-canceling tech make sure that extraneous noise is kept to a minimum. A triple-tap feature allows the listener to switch to an ambient mode for transparent hearing of their surroundings.
A customizable stem design delivers better comfort with the weight balanced between stem and body to help anchor and keep the earbud secure in the ear. Other features include a 5-hour battery life, up to 20 hours with ANC on, and longer with ANC off (up to 7 hours onboard battery life and 28 hours total with case), IPX4 rating for sweat-proof and weather-resistance, and four microphone tech with stereo voice clear communications. You can quick charge with USB-C (15 minutes for 2 hours play time), use touch controls for playback and calls, and there is Bluetooth 5.0 onboard.
“Since 2010 House of Marley has carried on the philosophy of Bob Marley, and crafted state of the art audio products made better for the earth and for music. This year marks Bob Marley’s 75th Birthday and to honor its namesake, House of Marley is expanding its commitment to the environment through contributions and activations with non-profit organizations One Tree Planted and Surfrider Foundation,” says an H of M spokesperson.
The Redemption ANC earbuds are available direct from House of Marley, Amazon and other retailers for $199.99.
