Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • The abundance of padding under the headband and memory foam ear pads make Exodus ANC extremely comfortable for extended listening sessions
  • Marley Exodus ANC can deliver up to 28 hours of battery life when Active Noise Canceling is activated or impressive up to 80 hours in a disconnected state
  • Decent noise cancellation filters out most external sounds, such as wind or crowd noise
  • The 50mm speakers deliver strong audio performance with a well-balanced sound signature. Powerful bass for rap, electronics and pop music with clear, crisp mid-range and excellent treble
  • Built-in controls and microphone to answer calls, music play/pause, volume controls/track navigation, power on/off, ANC on/off, Monitor mode and connect with Google Assistant or Siri
  • Monitor mode allows you to keep an ear open for external announcements without removing your headphones
  • Quick charge technology of Exodus ANC (EM-DH021-BK) offers up to 6 hours of playback with only 15 minutes of charging time
  • The Exodus ANC Over-Ear Headphones work passively with the included 3.5mm audio cable and can continue to produce sound even when the battery is empty
  • Exodus ANC Marley can be easily folded into a more compact format and is very convenient to carry around

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • Some users may feel uncomfortable during long listening sessions because the headphone suspension mechanism causes uneven weight distribution 
  • The noise canceling performance of House of Marley Exodus is just average, it does not exceed Bose QuietComfort 35 II or Sony Sony WH-1000XM3
  • When using The House Of Marley Exodus Headphones in a quiet room, the amplifier has a faint hissing sound due to the digital processing of ANC
  • Due to the non-availability of a dedicated app, House of Marley's Exodus ANC wireless headphones are not as customizable as some of the other over-ear Active Noise Canceling headphones
  • In our House of Marley Exodus ANC test, we found that the call quality of the built-in microphone is below average, feels thin, noticeably subdued and lacks detail
  • The built-in physical buttons are a little loose and their tinkling sound can be easily heard while moving or running 
  • There is significant latency when watching movies or playing games due to the lack of support for high-quality codec such as aptX, aptX HD or LDAC (SBC audio codec only) 
  • Included fabric pouch protects against scratches and slight damage to water, but not against falls and impact 

Highlights

  • Sustainably Crafted Materials: Stainless Steel, FSC certified ash wood, recyclable aluminum and braided cables
  • Up to 28 Hour Battery Life with ANC activated, up to 80 hours in a disconnected state
  • Active Noise Cancellation to filter external sounds
  • Monitor Mode lets in the external sound and allows you listen and connect with your surroundings

  • Quick Charge offers up to 6 hours of playback with only 15 minutes of charging time
