We’ve had quite a few House of Marley products come through the doors at Techaeris HQ and always been impressed by their style, their commitment to sustainability, and their sound. Their Smile Jamaica earbuds even earned a Techaeris Top Pick for 2016 for their style, sound, and low price. House of Marley has just released their Smile Jamaica Wireless earbuds, which are available today for only $59.99.
These wireless earbuds are in the neck wrap style, with the buds themselves attached to a flexible U-shaped body. The microphone and control buttons are on the larger bulbous tips of the neckband, while the earbuds themselves attach to the back of this area. Included cable management in the neck wrap help keep the wires neat and orderly when not in use. House of Marley claims 8 hours of battery life per charge with these earbuds. They’re available in several colors, including Brass, Denim, Copper, and Signature Black.
The Smile Jamaica Wireless earbuds of course feature House of Marley’s commitment to sustainability. Including components such as FSC™ certified wood (walnut, beech, maple and sapele), REGRIND™ recycled silicone rubber ear gels, and recycled aluminum alloy pieces, these earbuds are responsibly manufactured while still looking pretty fantastic.

HOUSE OF MARLEY BRINGS SUSTAINABLE DESIGN TO BLUETOOTH AUDIO, INTRODUCING THE SMILE JAMAICA WIRELESS HEADPHONES
Earth-Friendly, Audio Maker Announces Partnership with One Tree Planted, a Reforestation Give-Back Platform, in Connection with their #MaterialsMatter Campaign, Shining Light on Sustainability in a Plastics Driven Market
NEW YORK, NY [July 17, 2017]–House of Marley announces the anticipated release of their Smile Jamaica Wireless headphones today in connection with their #MaterialsMatter campaign. The CES 2017 award winning, in-ear headphones incorporate the same superior sound quality and earth-friendly design of the brand’s top-selling Smile Jamaica wired headphones, now with the convenience and portability of Bluetooth connectivity.
The Smile Jamaica Wireless offers a lightweight, durable wireless option with well-balanced, long-lasting sound for casual listening at an affordable price point. Crafted utilizing House of Marley’s sustainable design standards, the Bluetooth headphones are a conscious alternative to the bulky plastic products currently on the market. Incorporating REGRIND™ recycled silicone, recycled aluminum alloy and FSC™ certified woods the Smile Jamaica Wireless is available in four colorways.
“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” explains Director of Product Development, Josh Poulsen. “The Smile Jamaica Wireless’ slim, soft neckband is meant for all day listening without sacrificing performance and sound.”
With eight hours of battery life, the Smile Jamaica Wireless allows for simple media control paired with a noise isolating, in-line microphone. Flexible and pliable enough to fold into its accompanying stash-bag for easy storage and on-the-go listening, users can ensure the woven, in-ear cables don’t get tangled by retracting them within the neck collar for efficiency and portability.
As part of their latest campaign, #MaterialsMatter, House of Marley is bringing awareness to their innovative manufacturing and design process.House of Marley products are consciously crafted from mindfully sourced materials- from FSC™ certified woods and non-toxic silicone, to their own signature blend of REWIND™ up-cycled fabrics made from organic cotton, reclaimed hemp and recycled plastic bottles. Along with 100% recyclable packaging, the brand is making conscious efforts to ensure the materials they use conserve natural resources, contribute to cleaner manufacturing and produce less waste within the consumer electronics market.
In connection with the Smile Jamaica Wireless release and #MaterialsMatter campaign, House of Marley is proud to announce their partnership with One Tree Planted, a non-profit dedicated to reforestation efforts worldwide. As part of House of Marley’s philosophy to bring Bob Marley’s vision of universal love, music and respect for nature to life, each House of Marley product sold will contribute to the brand’s common goal of planting 75,000 trees within the next year in an effort to spread awareness of global forest restoration needs and corporate social responsibility.
“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,” highlights 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. By teaming up with One Tree Planted, we are acknowledging the need to give back to our Mother Earth what we take from it.”
Smile Jamaica Wireless headphones are available for purchase at TheHouseOfMarley.com and retail locations nationwide, for $59.99.
