It's Christmas season and it means we're all probably looking for a good gift for that smartphone user. And who doesn't love to use their phone for music? And lately it's been all the rage for bluetooth.
I remember years ago getting my dead a pair of wireless headphones and having to find a good set that used IR, and then the next year using 900MHz radio...
And nowadays we just easily plunk BT on a good set and can walk around most of the house and still have great sound.
On December 1st the House of Marley has released their Rebel headphones with a Bluetooth version
House of Marley is known for making a very eco-conscious approach to their products, where they use Forest Stewardship Council certified woods (something up in the north here we really pay attention to) and lots of recyclable materials. Best of all the company supports the Marley 1Love charity. So you'll feel good giving a great gift and helping support a great cause.
