Costa Rica Shines Bright in World Cup 2014

Costa Rica's national football team

Everyone loves to see the underdog take over the scene, and that is exactly what Costa Rica has done. Our South American friends crushed Uruguay 3-1 to open their World Cup 2014 appearance. A 1-0 win over Italy has set these super stars as the leader in what many considered the the World Cup’s most competitive group, the D bracket (England, Italy, Uruguay, Costa Rica, all former WC champions). With a draw against England (0-0), Costa Rica now moves to the second round with their best performance ever in a World Cup.

House of Marley would like to congratulate our ambassadors Joel Campbell and Yeltsen Tejeda on their amazing accomplishments thus far. We are honored to have these two greats representing our brand — both Campbell and Tejeda were sent off to Brazil with customized Marley Liberate headphones.

Campbell set the pace and scored the first goal for Costa Rica in the 53rd minute which tied up the opening match 1-1 verses Uruguay. Tejeda, a starting midfielder doing what he does best, dominating the field.

Good luck to Costa Rica and all the athletes representing their countries in the World Cup 2014!

The Good Life x House of Marley World Cup “Get Together”


The World Cup is back and the best sport in the world has taken over your television screen and your local haunts. Don’t be surprised if you see a few of your coworkers taking an extended lunch to watch these matches.

The Good Life and House of Marley have set up shop at the Cardinal (234 E. 4th St) for you crazy soccer, I mean FOOTBALL fans.

The East Village is the perfect haven to watch a game over a cold drink. As you can see from the photos, not having a seat doesn’t stop these fans from enjoying a game. We’ve got three House of Marley sound systems pumping audio, so you’ll enjoy the games (and the music afterwards) with pristine audio quality, no matter how packed it gets. In the back alley there is a mini pitch for those who want put their skills to work. So, put on your favorite jersey, grab some friends, and head to the Cardinal (don’t forget to tip the bartenders)!

Soccer + Headphones: a Great Combination for U.S. Men’s National Team

Fresh off a match over the weekend that resulted in a tie against Guatemala, the U.S. Men’s National soccer team remained on top of their group in the FIFA 2014 World Cup qualifying event. Before a recent game, the team had a chance to check out The House of Marley on-ear headphones, and while they aren’t necessarily soccer headphones, the team seemed to be in agreement that they liked what they heard.


Midfielders Geoff Cameron and Jose Torres checked out pairs of Stir It Up, giving them unanimous thumbs up as they lounged pre-game. Midfielder Kyle Beckerman walked around the locker room rocking out with his Stir It Up on-ear headphones. Prepared for soccer, headphones in hand, lone goal scorer in the Guatemala game, Clint Dempsey didn’t say that our Destiny over-ear headphones helped him score, but we’re sure they didn’t hurt.


No matter what effect on soccer headphones have, House of Marley is happy to know that while qualifying for the 2014 World Cup, the U.S. Men’s team has been wearing our on-ear headphones. As the team continues onto the next round of CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association) qualifying next year, we hope that House of Marley headphones continue to bring the team a little luck and a lot of rich bass.

With that being said, the team’s next match against Jamaica in September is making The House of Marley sweat a little bit when it comes to who to root for. Which team will win the epic match-up of soccer, headphones and national pride? We aren’t sure, but good luck to both teams, and especially to our new American team friends Cameron, Torres, Beckerman and Dempsey. May you continue toward your date with destiny in Brazil 2014. The House of Marley is rooting for you!
