Truly wireless earbuds and headphones are becoming the latest design to flood the headphone market. Some device makers rushed their products to market while others have taken their time to make something they’re proud to sell. House of Marley sits in the latter and for good reason, the company makes kick-butt audio products like the Liberate Air.
House of Marley is not only committed to making great audio products, but they’re also committed to being environmentally responsible. We’ve talked about their penchant for being good stewards in the past and the Liberate Air is no different.
The Liberate Air truly wireless earbuds are crafted using bamboo, natural wood fiber composite made from sawdust, recyclable aluminum, and REWIND fabric composed of recycled plastic bottles. None of this is surprising coming from this company.
Offering some of the longest battery life on the market with 9 hours of onboard listening, 32 hours total, the Liberate Air is for the everyday commute, the long flights, and the extended listening sessions, to keep you connected anywhere your day takes you.
The Liberate Air features a seamless pairing experience. After completing the initial pairing to your device, the earbuds will automatically pair upon opening the charging case, connecting before the earbuds even hit your ears. Tap touch control on the Liberate Air allows management of music, calls and your device’s Siri or Google Assistant with simply a tap of the earbud. No buttons, no clicks. With the ability to use each earbud independently, switching roles into the mono mode with the right earbud can conserve battery life and offer awareness of your external environment. Interchangeable recycled silicone ear tips ensure a tailored, comfortable fit and IPX4 rating provides for sweatproof functionality, allowing for active use from work to the gym.
“The truly wireless market has become a prominent one and we wanted to ensure we provided a sustainably crafted alternative using consciously sourced and recycled materials,” explains House of Marley Director of Product Development, Josh Poulsen. “We observed the market focusing on areas for improvement and found the opportunity to propel battery life to 9 hours within true wireless earbuds by using efficient chipsets and designed the Liberate Air to offer a seamless pairing experience. ”
The consciously sourced materials used in the design and craftsmanship of the Liberate Air reflect the mission of House of Marley as the first audio brand to craft products that include sustainable materials and contribute to global reforestation. Purchasing the Liberate Air contributes to the planting of trees through House of Marley’s Project Marley environmental give-back platform. Through donations to non-profit organization One Tree Planted, House of Marley supports global reforestation in an effort to bring awareness to the consumption and waste of the plastics-driven consumer electronics market with 186,000 trees planted to date.
