UNBOXED: Reviewing the House of Marley Liberate Air Truly Wireless Earphones
Seeing brands give back to the environment is truly admirable, and it’s something that is core to House of Marley’s mission. The audio brand creates all of its products from mindfully sourced materials including bamboo, FSC certified wood, recyclable aluminum, plastic and fabrics. In addition to that, they’ve contributed to the planting of 146,000 trees since 2017 as part of their partnership with the One Tree Planted Organization.
In July of 2019, House of Marley marked their first step into the truly wireless earbud market with the Liberate Air earphones. Like the brand’s other offerings, the earbuds are made from sustainable materials like bamboo, recycled silicone, and fabric. House of Marley calls them “the perfect companion on a hike or long bike ride by the beach.”
Unfortunately though, my first pair of Liberate Airs would not allow me to pair the earbuds to one another no matter what I tried. I was only able to listen out of one earbud at a time since the option to pair to the “headset” never appeared. House of Marley was kind enough to send me a new pair for review and a shipping label to return the faulty pair. I can only assume they had me send the earbuds back not only to investigate the problem, but also to avoid waste. Both reasons I totally respect!
