House of Marley Riddim Speaker Review

Screen Shot 2020-07-29 at 7.00.09 PM

The House of Marley Riddim Bluetooth Speaker is an exceptional product. Right out of the box this speaker is ready to connect to your device. That means practically zero set up. It takes less than a minute to pair this speaker with your iPhone. The Riddim Speaker is the perfect size for travel, and is made from renewable materials with bamboo sides and a cork base.

There are four buttons – pair, on/off, and volume for up and down. Riddim, when paired with your device, will adjust accordingly with your devices volume. House of Marley’s Riddim Bluetooth Speaker will give you up to 10hrs of power when fully charged.

On the whole, this product is great. However, Inserting the charger can be a bit of a hassle. Getting it in this side requires a little patience as its not the easiest thing to access. But it is out of the way and does not spoil the overall design.

I really like this speaker. The Riddim is a wonderful little device you can take with you anywhere. The bluetooth is easy to connect and will not be interrupted when passing by another bluetooth device. All in all, I love it!

House of Marley UpLift 2

Screen Shot 2020-07-29 at 7.00.09 PM I love listening to music with the House of Marley Uplift 2 Earbuds. Use them for your laptop, desktop, phone, tablet whatever! The sound is outstanding!
Although some may choose other In-Ear Headphones over these, they still have a lot of amazing attributes.  The cord is easy to unfurl and the earbuds are totally portable.
The Uplift 2 comes with 3 sets of ear gels, a stash bag, and have an ergonomic design for an unobtrusive fit. That means that they are so comfortable, you could  fall asleep wearing them. Great sound and comfort, one of the best ear buds Ive used!

House of Marley Stir It Up Review

Screen Shot 2020-07-29 at 7.00.09 PM

From the moment the package arrived I knew that I was in for a great product experience with the House of Marley Stir It Up Turntable. The packaging looked great and I immediately got the feeling of “good quality and craftsmanship” versus “cheap”. 

The Stir It Up Turntable is a simple, but beautiful design. Every part of it has a purpose. There was nothing included in the design that shouldn’t be there.  The sound experience gives you so much more than what you pay for, great value for your money. The bass sound is solid and the high frequency treble sounds are crisp leaving you with a warm overtone.

Some of the The Stir It Up Turntable’s  wonderful attributes include, bamboo plinth, aluminum alloy platter, built in pre amp, and now with the purchase of the The Stir It Up Turntable you will receive Bob Marley’s Legends album for free! That means you get to experience the great sound quality almost instantly.

Overall a great purchase, I would highly recommend this turntable for vinyl enthusiasts who want to level up without necessarily spending a ton of money.

House of Marley In Ear Headphones Review

Screen Shot 2020-07-29 at 7.00.09 PM

Along with the Uplift 2 headphones, House of Marley has a whole line of in-ear buds. Here is a list:

Smile Jamaica
Little Bird

House of Marley Smile Jamaica Ear Buds

For a small pair of headphones, these are amazing! The quality of sound is impressive and the  green, yellow, red, rasta style chord gives you a unique design attribute. It looks super fun and very well made. Like the description says, they don’t get tangled. As an added bonus they are noise canceling, which is not otherwise advertised. This set of headphones are priced on the cheaper side coming in around $18. You can also get House of Marley Smile Jamaica Ear Buds in a Wireless form. For the wireless, prices start at $41.

House of Marley Little Bird Earbuds

Style and class is not lacking in the House of Marley Little Bird Ear Buds. The  earbuds have a cool wood outer finish. They are light weight and can go for a long time. The padding for the earbuds is nice and soft, and will not leave you in pain.

For a little pair of ear buds the Little Bird packs a punch! Prepare for clarity and BASS! If you are shopping on a budget but still want quality, these earbuds are for you. Price starts at $9 and goes up depending on the colors, but not by much.

House of Marley Nesta Ceramic In-Ear Headphones

The House Of Marley Nesta Ceramic In-Ear Headphones are nothing short of impressive. These wired headphones feature zirconia ceramics and stainless steel casing. It has an In-line Microphone with 3-button remote. The Nesta is designed to isolate sound and is a durable, wear resistant headphone.

You will be blown away by the sound when you listen to these. Lots of bass and a fairly wide sound stage. You will feel like you are at a  concert. For the price the Nesta is built to last with the sturdy ceramic housing. You will be pleased to know that the Nesta can stand toe to toe with headphones like the IE800s which are made of ceramic as well. Knowing that the Nesta has a similar build at a fraction of the price is nothing short of amazing.

Fun sound signature with booming bass, very good for the every day music lover who wants a exceptional sound quality. Starting price is $36 and up.

House Of Marley Voyage In-Ear Headphones

The Voyage comes in a bit high at approx. $52, but the quality is no joke. It has been said that these speakers need a break in period. After about three weeks of break-in time, your headphones will come to life! You will hear the highest highs and the lowest lows. The bass is clear, and crisp, and the mid’s are smooth and not lost or muddled in the mix.

Like all of the House Of Marley’s products, the casing and design are well crafted. You will not be disappointed with Voyage In-Ear Buds . Just remember to give them a little time to break in.

House of Marley Uprise In-Ear Headphones

Last but not least we have the House Of Marley Uprise In-Ear Headphones. The most expensive on the list, but easily the best. The sound coming out of these headphones are phenomenal. You will experience a wonderful balance of bass and treble. Your bass will be low and strong but the treble will not be lost.

There are a lot of great headphones out there, but what Uprise has over the competition is it’s ability to stay in your ear. I’ve found plenty of headphones that sound good, but I couldn’t use them because they either wouldn’t stay in my ears or they were painful to wear. Uprise is great for active users and they’re incredibly comfortable.

The battery is said to have a shelf life of 8hrs, but it has been reported to go longer than that without charging. House Of Marley Uprise In-Ear Headphones truly are an exceptional piece of equipment!

How To Pair House Of Marley Headphones

Pairing your House of Marley Headphones is easy. Make sure your headphones are charged. Tun on your device and hold the connect button on the headphones. The headphones should connect automatically after a few seconds. For more information on all House of Marley products Click the Instruction Guide. 

House of Marley Get Together Mini Review

Screen Shot 2020-07-29 at 7.00.09 PM

Where do I start?!? This speaker sounds INCREDIBLE!! The highs are beautifully balanced with the bass. This thing gets LOUD with zero distortion whatsoever. The Get Together Mini gets so loud that at higher volumes your sure to get noise complaints from neighbors.

Any music style sounds great on the Get Together Mini. It will take even the heaviest bass track with ease.  The Get Together Mini is such a  superior speaker that you can hear subtle nuances to songs that you never knew were there before!  This is the perfect speaker for parties and I would even go as far as replacing a surround sound system. 100% recommend!!!


House Of Marley never cease to amaze me in quality and production. They are a great company that strive to help the environment by making eco friendly products and giving back to the planet we all love so much. I highly recommend any one of there products.
