House of Marley debuts eco-friendly wireless speakers just in time for Earth Day

House of Marley, the audio brand that has a history of producing speakers, headphones, and turntables made from sustainable materials, has just launched its latest product: The $150 Get Together Duo, a set of wireless bookshelf speakers that are as versatile as they are eco-friendly.

“We use materials for their sustainable properties and their aesthetic quality, but also for their acoustical, mechanical properties as well,” said Josh Poulsen, House of Marley director of product development, in a press release. Poulsen claims that the bamboo in the Get Together Duo is produced using a carbon-positive process.

But the Get Together Duo are interesting for more than their reduced environmentally friendly footprint.

Each speaker has its own Bluetooth 5.0 radio, which can perform two tasks simultaneously. It lets you pair your phone to the speakers for wireless music streaming, but it also lets the speakers wirelessly connect to each other to form a stereo pair.

Each enclosure houses a 3.5-inch woofer and a 1-inch tweeter for a combined 20 watts of power. They’re independently powered and amplified, so you can separate them as far as that Bluetooth connection will allow. The right speaker contains a 20-hour rechargeable battery, which lets you use it completely wirelessly.

On the back of the speakers, you’ll find two wired analog connection options: Left and right RCA phono line-in ports and a 3.5mm aux-in port. These can be used to connect the Get Together Duo to sources like turntables, portable media players, or CD players.

When using the speakers with a smartphone, the top controls can alter volume, play/pause, and skip forward or backward.

At $150, the Get Together Duo is the same price as House of Marley’s Get Together Mini, a Bluetooth speaker that uses the same materials as the Duo. But with more power, the ability to create proper stereo separation between speakers, and larger drivers, the Get Together Duo represents a better value for those who only need a portable solution for rare occasions.

The Get Together Duo is available now from and should be available soon from other retailers like Amazon and Best Buy.

House of Marley’s corked-back No Bounds XL speaker is waterproof and even floats
house of marley no bounds xl

Chances are fairly good that if you’ve spent any amount of time shopping for Bluetooth speakers, you’ve found that a lot of them are at least some form of waterproof. Not all waterproof speakers are equal: Some will survive splashes, some will survive being submerged in water for a period of time, and some will even float. In the case of House of Marley’s No Bounds XL, the latter is the case, but the company approaches it in a unique way.

House of Marley made a name for itself not just because of its association with the family of the legendary Bob Marley, but also due to its focus on sustainability. The company is known for Bluetooth speakers, headphones, and earbuds, but unlike other companies, it also happens to be the first FSC-certified consumer electronics brand within the United States due to its sustainability efforts and the materials used. In the case of the No Bounds XL, this includes materials like cork, which gives the speaker its ability to float.

If you care about the planet as much as you care about music, you’re probably already familiar with House of Marley and its range of eco-friendly audio products, such as bass-heavy headphones and speakers made from hemp. The company is back at it again with its new Uprise Bluetooth wireless in-ears, which stand out thanks to the natural and recycled materials from which they’re made.

House of Marley describes the Uprise as a “conscious alternative to the sea of plastics” that comprise the vast majority of the headphones you’ll find on the market these days. Made mainly from recycled wood fiber and recycled polypropylene composite, the Uprise also use House of Marley’s Rewind up-cycled fabrics and Regrind recycled silicone and plastics. Looking beyond the materials at the actual build, the headphones look similar to some other “ear hanger” wireless in-ears, with a fabric-covered cable that is meant to run behind your neck.
