The eco-friendly audio maker releases FSC ® certified wood headphone ahead of Earth Day with Project Marley give-back platform supporting tree planting efforts.
LOS ANGELES, CA [April 2, 2019] – House of Marley, the earth-friendly audio maker, is announcing the first release from their anticipated 2019 collection with the sustainably designed Exodus over-ear Bluetooth® wireless headphones just in time for Earth Day. Uniquely crafted using FSC® certified wood, recyclable aluminum and natural leather, the Exodus marks the arrival of the new flagship headphone series to be accompanied by the Exodus ANC this fall.
Included as one of the “Best new headphones of CES 2019” by CNET, the Exodus features a 30-hour battery life, the longest for House of Marley headphones to date, extending not only playtime but product life as well by increasing time between charges. Designed and engineered with 50mm hi-definition drivers, the Exodus delivers balanced, acoustic performance with a timeless natural style, offering a premium all-day listening at a more reasonable price for those opting for craftsmanship and sustainable design without sacrificing sound and quality. Bluetooth LE technology allows for quick pairing, extended range and lower power consumption with compatible devices. Memory Foam ear cushions provide premium comfort while the foldable hinge design, remote functionality and onboard mic for hands-free calling offer portability and convenience.
“We aimed to design an over-ear headphone that can be listened to for long periods without discomfort or acoustic fatigue, offers premium construction and incorporates sustainable materials while focusing on heritage and retro-inspired design elements,” explains House of Marley Director of Product Development, Josh Poulsen. “In the case of the Exodus, sustainability means more than just the materials from which the headphone is constructed. The quality craftsmanship means product life is extended and the emphasis on comfort allows the user to sustain longer listening sessions.”
As part of their Project Marley environmental give-back platform, House of Marley is honoring the charitable philosophy of its namesake by donating to the planting of trees through non-profit organization One Tree Planted to support global reforestation. In connection with Earth Day this month, House of Marley will contribute to plantings in Colorado, Kenya and Rwanda. This follows the brand’s participation in a localized tree planting effort in the Los Angeles, California area last month as part of a larger project to plant trees in order to reduce the urban heat island effect.
House of Marley has contributed to the planting of 168,000 trees since 2017 in an effort to bring awareness to the consumption and waste of the plastics-driven consumer electronics market. Reforestation contributes to positive environmental, social and economic impact through carbon offsets, cleaner air, water filtration and greater biodiversity within the world’s forests. Supporters can follow current tree plantings on House of Marley’s website while monitoring global forest changes through Global Forest Watch.
The Exodus is available now at www.HouseofMarley.com.au, Amazon and select retailers nationwide for $299.95 RRP.
