In a move towards making sustainability more accessible, House of Marley has introduced its latest addition to the wireless earbuds market – the Little Bird True Wireless Earbuds. These eco-friendly earbuds mark a significant departure from the status quo, not only due to their sustainability-driven design but also for their affordability. Priced at just $50, they bring the House of Marley experience to a more budget-conscious audience, making sustainable audio more accessible.
Much like the company's other audio products, such as headphones, speakers, and turntables, the Little Bird earbuds incorporate environmentally friendly materials. They feature bamboo, mica composites, recycled plastics, and House of Marley's proprietary Regrind, a blend of natural wood fiber. These materials not only contribute to the earbuds' sustainable ethos but also create a distinct and eye-catching design.
Inside the Little Bird earbuds, you'll find 10mm high-definition drivers that deliver impressive audio quality. However, it's important to note that the Little Bird earbuds, while firmly rooted in sustainability, offer a rather basic set of features.
They don't boast high-end specifications like active noise cancellation (ANC), transparency mode, wireless charging, hi-res audio, or Bluetooth Multipoint. These earbuds are designed primarily for music playback and phone calls, keeping things simple and affordable.
The battery life of the Little Bird earbuds is decent, offering a claimed six hours of playback, with an additional 24 hours provided by the charging case. A notable feature is the fast-charging capability, which provides an extra two hours of playback after just 15 minutes of charging.
In terms of connectivity, the Little Bird earbuds support Bluetooth 5.3 and offer separate modes for gaming and movie watching. The gaming mode aims to reduce latency, ensuring a smoother gaming experience. Touch controls on the earbuds allow users to manage playback, handle phone calls, and adjust volume levels. However, it's worth mentioning that these controls are not customizable, as House of Marley currently lacks a companion app for customization or firmware updates.
The release of the Little Bird True Wireless Earbuds represents a significant step for House of Marley as they make sustainable audio technology more affordable. These earbuds are not intended to compete with high-end audio products, but rather to provide a guilt-free audio experience at a reasonable price point.
House of Marley's Little Bird True Wireless Earbuds are set to hit the shelves on November 7, available in two color options, black and cream, and can be purchased directly from the House of Marley's website and various online retailers.
