Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • An eco-friendly pair of headphones with a minimalist and elegant design, made with durable materials. Bamboo wood is paired with recycled silicone and fabric to help the headphones stand out from the crowd
  • The House of Marley Liberate Air are IPX4 certified, to handle sweat and splashes, better than regular true wireless earbuds
  • Smooth and well balanced sound signature with plenty of punch to the bass, well-tuned medium-range, clear and detailed high range to keep the energy up at the gym
  • On-board microphones and touch controls to answer calls, skip tracks, music play/pause and connect with Google Assistant or Siri
  • Impressive battery life of up to 9 hours on a single charge, and the charging case provides 32 hours of extra power
  • Quick charging technology provides up to 4 hour of playback from 10 minutes of charge
  • The microphone performance is really strong, they sound loud and voices don't sound too distant
  • Each bud receives its own Bluetooth data, so can be used in mono mode alone for music or calls
  • Three silicone tips of different sizes ensure that earbuds sit perfectly in your ear without giving you the feeling that they are about to fall
  • Brilliant sound isolation as the tips create the perfect seal that blocks most external sounds
  • Status LED battery indicators at the front of the charging case to check the amount of juice left

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • Regardless of the distance from the sound source, the connection to one of the earbuds is often interrupted, which makes the listening experience annoying
  • Booming bass is ideal for training, but not good if you want a more laid-back, relaxed listening 
  • There is some harmonic distortion, especially with high-pitched sounds if the phone volume exceeds 50-60%
  • In many cases, the touch panel doesn't always record a click, so getting the right number of clicks to perform a specific function can be annoying
  • Connect only one device at a time, unlike other premium models that can connect to two devices at the same time
  • House of Marley's eco-friendly true wireless earbuds are a little larger than other true wireless headphones, and as a result, users with small ears may have trouble keeping them firmly in the ear during normal use
  • Bluetooth pairing is fine if you only use it with one device, but with multiple devices, it seems to forget everything but the last connected device
  • No support for superior Bluetooth codec like aptX, aptX HD and LDAC (only SBC codec support) for better audio quality
  • No Active Noise Cancellation, a feature now quite common in high end models
  • Decent water-resistance rating, whereas competitors such as Jaybird offer completely waterproof models in the same price range
  • There is no wireless charging case to charge your earbuds by simply placing them on the back of the phone

Highlights

  • Truly wireless in-ear headphones made from sustainable materials such as Bamboo, recycled silicone and fabric for environmentalists and audio enthusiasts
  • The Liberate air features 9 hours of battery life, as well as a charging case with 2.5 additional charges totaling 32 hours
  • Liberate Air headphones are sweat and weather resistant with an IPX4 rating for active lives and challenging environments
  • Built-in touch controls to easily play, pause, or change music, answer calls, and connect with voice assistants
  • Stereo voice communications allow you to hear and be heard as clearly as if your phone were close to your ear
  • USB-C charger that works with The Liberate Air Earphone and its charging case
