The majority of wireless headphones out there are plastic with plastic all over, but what if you’re after something a bit more premium, a bit more lush? Would wood do?
If wood is good, and good enough for your ears, the House of Marley might have something for you, with a pair of over-the-ear headphones designed to bring a combination of comfort and warm looks thanks to the use of wood, leather, and some softened cushions.
The headphones aren’t a first for the company, which has actually been around for a good five years or so, with a name that is familiar not just because it shares the name made famous by the reggae musician Bob, but also because it’s a business run by that Bob’s grandchildren.
With this pair of headphones, the focus is on something other wireless cans may lack, such as the nicety of wood, compatibility for high-end wireless sound technologies like aptX, and a set of 50mm drivers.
They’re called the Liberate XL Over-Ear headphones, and the wood is one thing Marley wants to point out, with its timber elements certified by the Forest Stewardship Council which says the wood being used in these headphones is ethical.
If that’s an important thing for you to consider, you’ll find it in these headphones, which will be found in Australia for a recommended retail price of $249.95 at electronics and sound retailers across the country.
