The House of Marley Docks Bring Music Both On The Go And In Your Home


Honouring the Legacy of Bob Marley, MARLEY products bring music both on the go and in your home

The House of Marley, with its collection of premium quality, earth-friendly headphones, today announced the launch of its portable and home audio systems in the UK.

The eagerly anticipated Bag of Rhythm portable speaker is now available at HMV and other selected retailers with a RRP of £299.99. The stylish and powerful docking station, Get Up Stand Up and portable travel speaker, Chant, will both be available in Summer 2012.

MARLEY products come with the Marley “Signature” Sound, incorporating more than 30 years of audio expertise into the design of the acoustics of their audio products. It is the goal of The House of Marley to produce audio products with smooth, powerful bass, mids with stunning presence, and an energised high-end that brings music to life. Each product undergoes custom tuning for its particular size, shape and material.

Encompassing the Marley spirit, way of thinking and music, wherever you go, The Bag of Rhythm is made from sustainably sourced FSC certified Birch wood and is cradled with a bag made from cotton. The portable unit is equipped with an iPod and iPhone docking and charging station and features twin 1″ tweeters, twin 4.5″ high-definition woofers and a powerful amplifier that delivers amazing output with crisp detail and deep, powerful bass to play the music loud and proud.

The Chant, which is available in Summer 2012, provides great sound from a super-small, earth-friendly package. Taking its form from an African percussion drum, the Chant includes a twistable bamboo top piece, a recycled plastic enclosure and a canvas carry bag.

Get Up Stand Up which will also be available in Summer 2012, delivers breathtaking sound from a uniquely beautiful design with a single piece of shaped FSC certified Birch wood.

The House of Marley, besides expanding on its MARLEY audio line, will stay true to its lifestyle roots by introducing watches, bags and other accessories later in the year.

The House of Marley donates five percent of annual profits to 1Love.org, the global movement sparked by the Marley family that provides funding to charities and causes focused on youth, planet and peace. In addition to the Bag of Rhythm, MARLEY headphones are currently available in markets worldwide including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Hong Kong, Korea, South America, The Middle East and the Caribbean with planned expansion into the rest of Europe in 2012.
