Bob Marley's legacy can be measured in many ways, assuming you can come up with different ways of counting the brobdingnagian piles of cash his estate continues to make. Add your drop to their bucket and get more than a t-shirt you can only wear on weekends, with House of Marley Headphones.
Sanctioned by the Marley family (and supporting their charity), HoM's slowly rolling out a collection of eco-friendly 'phones made from sustainably sourced wood, aluminum, and plastic, all divided into three collections of varying aesthetic design/tech, and designed to express Bob's music "the way it was meant to be heard", so these headphones will stone the bejeezus out of you. The collections:
Jammin': In-ear models include the Midnight Ravers (bass-optimized 10mm drivers, bright red silicone tips, aerated aluminum shell), while bulkier options count the optionally Rasta-colored Soul Rebels, whose 40mm drivers "handle bass at its dirtiest", which is usually just when it drops the "b".
Freedom: From the Zion earphones' in-cord 3-button remote/mic to the Freedom Exodus headphones' 5-30kHz frequency range, the technologically advanced Freedom line boasts wood accents and richer colors, and provides a "natural, high-quality sound for a rich, deep sound"...so yeah, these headphones really do make you high.
Destiny: The "culmination of high design", goods on the yet-to-be-dropped highest-end front range from the battery-powered, DJ-style TTR, to a wooden, quad-speaker, 100watt iGear dock w/ AirPlay so you can wirelessly stream from any room, which if you're a Marley descendant is great, considering your house probably has a ton of them.
