House of Marley - Zion In-ear Headphones

Today we are going to take a look at a set of In-ear headphones called the Zion by the House of Marley. If you haven't heard of the House of Marley, definitely take a look at their unique products. The company sponsors the movement and every purchase made will donate a portion to them. The House of Marley uses reggae music as its test by which all of their products are made using bass as the first element they turn their attention to. 

The build quality of these is outstanding. The cord is fabric covered and is very durable and looks to reduce tangling. The plug is a right angle plug but should work with most cases, even ones with narrow and deep cutouts. The 3-button-mic is not an exception to the outstanding build quality. The earbud features FSC certified sapele and maple wood with recyclable aluminum. 

The Zion in-ear headphones are not an exception for their attention to bass. It's no secret that the first thing you notice when you wear these is the bass level. In my testing, the high's are nice, clean & adequate. The mids are a tad bit underwhelming and could use a little bit more. The lows are heavy as expected but hit hard and are very very clean without sounding muddy. The overall sound output is impressive and meshes well for those that like a heavier bass output. In my honest opinion, the sound quality is amazing for a product whose name I had not previously heard of. 


Overall, I highly recommend these which come with a price tag of $99.99 available on the House of Marley website in 2 colors (Midnight - as shown and also Mist which is more of a grey).

  1. Does the plug indeed fit with an otterbox case for the iphone 4/4s? I want to be sure before i spend good money on them. Thanks!
