House of Marley Liberate XL On-Ear Headphones
Top Questions No one has asked a question yet! Be the first!
- I am not sure full retail price, I got it at marshall's for a good deal, but if it is on sale definitely go for it!
- comes with cord extension if you do want to NOT use Bluetooth - this is honestly a great feature. WHY?!
Well: While the charge for normal use lasts quite a long while, for stuff like, say, traveling for 14 hours by plane/sitting in airport, etc, obviously the charge then gets eaten faster. BUT still doesn't die! The real issue here is that your bluetooth use on your phone when you are travelling eats up the battery.
SO: when you want to save battery life on YOUR PHONE (or, want to use the mike feature on the cord), just plug in your bluetooth headphones to your phone and then you're not using up the phone battery as quickly - as bluetooth (and wifi) does cause the battery to be used faster.
ALSO: mike works great. I have done business calls, facetime calls, etc.
they are comfortable.
They look awesome (duh).
They are nice in the winter (Warm), but in hot weather it also isn't like "too hot".
Comes with a bag to put headphones and corresponding cords in for traveling - a nice plus.
Here's the deal: The Marley earphones have a cord that has two ends to it, one with a bent plug and one with a straight plug. Looking closely you can see that one has the triple bands for speech, the bent one, and one has the double bands for audio, the straight plug.
For iPhone: Plug the straight end into the Marleys and plug the bent end into the iPhone. This puts the microphone nearer to your mouth.
For Kindle: Plug the bent end into the Marleys and plug the straight end into the Kindle. This allows you to hear the text-to-speech.
For Hearing Aids: you don't have to take your in-the-ear hearing aids out because the Marley ear pads fit over your ears. (soooo much better than having to take out your hearing aids to use ear buds!!)
They don't tell you this in the instructions, but it does work! Perfectly. This makes it well worth the cost to me.
