Life is full of tough decisions, but choosing in-ear headphones doesn’t have to be one of them. Each pair of House of Marley in-ear headphones combines superior sound quality, earth-friendly material and killer design aesthetics. Consider this helpful headphone guide the next time you find yourself choosing in-ear headphones.

Style

Using unique FSC certified wood and recycled plastic, House of Marley earbuds are built to last while also ensuring our planet lasts. Our in-ear headphones are influenced by the look and feel of the Earth. Many also incorporate the colors of Jamaica as a style foundation. The bright colors of the Jammin’ collection shine compared to the more earthy tones of the Freedom collection.

Inner Construction

The House of Marley has crafted two different collections of comfortable in-ear headphones delivering unique sound performance. The Freedom series of in-ear headphones offer premium sound courtesy of 9mm moving coil drivers with frequency response of 12Hz to 22kHz. The uniquely colored Jammin’ Series come in at a lower price tag while using similar technology to capture awesome audio quality.

Comfort

When choosing in-ear headphones from the House of Marley, comfort is unlimited. Each carefully crafted pair of headphones offer snug ear tips that provide noise isolation from the world around you. No more hard buds that hurt your ears after hours of wearing them.

Regardless of which House of Marley earbuds you decide on, rest assured that when choosing between our in-ear headphones, each one pair has one main thing in common: quality.

Rude Kid Reps House Of Marley In The Studio

rude-kid-2

Since hitting the big time in 2009, producer and DJ Rude Kid has been perfecting his grimey production sensibilities with his music clique, Alien Musiq. The East London native was pivotal in bringing back instrumental Grime to the UK dance/hip-hop scene, and all the while Rude Kid has had House of Marley headphones by his side. Earlier this month, SB.TV shot an episode of Producers House at Rude Kid’s home, offering some insight into his production process.

With a pair of House of Marley Destiny TTR over-ear headphones in hand, Rude Kid details history in the Grime scene, as he started out with a burnt CD copy of the beat building program FruityLoops. Despite some stumbles that all newcomers must face, Rude Kid has dialed in his production style and continues to make beats in his home studio. Rude Kid starts his song creation process working with his computer, speakers, an Oxygen 8 keyboard and a pair of House of Marley over-ear headphones.

Rude Kid begins by forming a melody and building from there. Stacking more complex instruments on top of this base, he works in horn and synth that sound extremely alien to this world. Ending with simple rhythms, Rude Kid completes his songs with bass sounds and drum loops from his massive computer library of pre-built out studio bits and pieces. The trademark of every Rude Kid song is his sonic stamp of three small words, “Are you ready?”

Continuing to push forward, Rude Kid has developed unearthly sounds with nothing more than a computer, keyboard and a pair of House of Marley over-ear headphones. Check out the video below and get a rare chance to see inside the home studio of a world-class producer.

Iggy Pop – “The Passenger”

A new wave classic from proto-punk Iggy Pop, “The Passenger” tells the tale of a nighttime car ride. With 40+ years of touring under his belt, its no wonder the punk rock legend has a knack for writing the best travel songs.
