I usually take the train to work, therefore, I usually take with me an array of tools that make being trapped with a whole bunch of strangers packed like sardines as pleasant as possible. To help make things more enjoyable, I always take a book/Kindle and my iPod. These two items are indispensible, almost to a point that if I forget one of them at home, I automatically have a bad day. You might say that I am addicted, but I find it important to basically reset my brain in the mornings before I start a busy day. Key to being able to do this is being able to remove all distraction that is why I am super careful about the earphones I uses.
While it may be best to use the ear headphones like a Beats By Dre etc., it just isn’t practical for me since they take up space and they can mess up your hair (not something that I usually care about in general but important when going to work). That is why I tend to go with in ear buds. The trouble is finding ones that aren’t too expensive but still deliver great quality audio.
I have been finding great success with the House of Marley EM-JE000-RA Smile Jamaica-Jammin’ In Ear headphones.
With a cost of around $30, I have been getting everything I want. They come with two sets ear buds and a traveling bag. As an added bonus, the headphones are made using natural materials and recycled plastic including a real sapele and beech wood outer casing along with recycled aluminum which is pretty impressive.
No fancy buttons or connections needed, all these House of Marley headphone produce great sound. If you haven’t figured it out yes it is “the” House of Marley meaning uber-famous Reggae musician Bob Marley, so I am going to take a stab at the fact that they are going to want to provide some quality music products. In addition, House of Marley supports the 1love a charitable organization dedicated to supporting youth, planet and peace. In reality, you couldn’t ask for anything more.
Disclosure: I received a House of Marley Smile Jamaica-Jammin’ In Ear headphones for review purposes but as always my post is my unbaised opinions.
