The headphones are made from recycled and "sustainable" materials in colours red, gold and green. It is reputed to have a unique sound and bass associated with the Bob Marley's reggae. They are named after the reggae star's songs including Redemption Song, Stir It Up, and Exodus.
The headphones were launched at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, United States in January of this year.

We want to build a nice acoustic venue for them where they can be able to practice music with state of the art equipment," Marley said.
