We have a few sets of ear/headphones to get through and this pair form the House Of Marley is the first up. They might look a bit delicate but overall they pack some serious sound and are fairly solid with a unqiue look to constructed with fabric,metal and some wood thrown in for good measure..

The build quality is good overall and stretching them here there and everywhere they to me are quite solid as a whole thought they might look a but weak they are not. They are also really light and they look well and stand out and most if not all that have seen them here liked them especially after listening to some tunes on them, the sound is really good and LOUD.
The headband is made with REWIND fabric with a denim look to it and its a nice touch,keeps clean and the band itself is flexible for any size head and padded on the underside in Blue plain material.
The cups are really well designed and the design overall quite good with metal cups finished off with integrated FSC certified wood with their logo stamped. The metal rails which join the headband and cups up is a simple design yet different,fairly sturdy and in between the bars is the cable which is twisted and looks really nice and I would say should last long enough once you take pride in your cans.
The joints where the headset folds is made with plastic and feels robust and should perhaps last much longer that joints we see at this point on headphones though time will tell over usage how long they will really last and they held all in place with three small screws so I reckon they would get great longevity.
The aluminium cups are really comfortable with a soft leather padding and inside the Marley branding in once again present on the cloth material covering the cups ,this is of course removable and when removed we can see the inerts and a further three screws.
On the left side we just have one access port which is for charging so its a simple affair here, On the Right side is all the function keys which are small for me and might take big handed folk a bit more time to navigate blindly but over time like any other headset like this you will find with ease as you get custom to them, Also present this side is the 3.5 MM socket for your headphone cable should you run out of juice on battery. We have and indicator light present here for connectivity status and also a mic for taking calls which coincides with its inline one button control on its tangle free cable it all works well.
The battery life is slated as 12 hrs which seems consistant with my review time of two weeks and easily will last a day but for those on the go constantly or a long commute to work might want to charge them nightly to be safe but most folk would get a few days of general use but this of course depends on the individual and how much they use them for..
Overall I was happy with the design build quality and most importantly the sound,they are loud and reproduce highs and lows brilliantly but I am no audio expert and from testing countless headphones now they are up there with loudness which is the way I like to listen to my music and they are also very comfortable blocking most external noise and if you listen to these full blast in a quite environment you are in for a treat.
At the time of press they are now on sale for £49.99 if looks,design and quality is what you are after check them out below.
