The symbiosis between audio and design has grown significantly in recent years. Rising headphone company House of Marley is taking things a few steps further by putting a high emphasis on creating products that are sustainable, renewable and recyclable. Co-founder Rohan Marley envisions a multi-faceted sound experience, that matches today’s technical but also ecological demands, “It’s more than just aesthetics. It’s about functionality, the purpose of it, and really having that quality and sound with sustainable and using eco-friendly materials.” The latest addition to their steadily growing product line,”The Get Together” Bluetooth portable audio system, represents this mantra in its purest essence. We took a closer look to assess its functionality, design and sound, and see if it pushes the envelope within the new generation of audio speakers.

DESIGN
Staying true to the company’s overall approach organic sustainability, the unique design of “The Get Together” is highlighted through the natural bamboo façade on the front and rear with a recycled plastic enclosure. For its custom-tuned bass-reflex enclosure, House of Marley opted for its signature REWIND™ fabric, which is composed of reclaimed hemp, organic cotton, and recycled plastic bottles, giving the piece a uniquely refreshing retro look. Designed to be used at home and on-the-go, the speaker was created with an ecologically conscious user in mind, boasting portability and rugged usage as one its feature highlights. The durable construction encompasses a detail-heavy set of 3.5″ woofers and two 1″ tweeters that neatly complement the overall “earth-friendly” aesthetic.

DURABILITY
Designed to withstand daily outdoor activity, the The Get Together” should be able to handle a rough ride to your favorite bbq place in the wild or a basketball court. In full accordance with House of Marley’s eco-friendly direction, we tested its abilities during recent camping session at scenic coastline of Hong Kong’s outskirts in Sai Kung. The trip included a bumpy one-hour car ride as well as a 45-minute uphill hike. We were pleasantly surprised that The Get Together was capable of providing a clear and unobstructed sound, and passed the trip without a single scratch.

SOUND
Backed with two 3.5″ woofers in with two 1″ tweeters, “The Get Together” compels the user with an excellent audio quality which is capable of filling any room with sound. This becomes especially evident through its sound clarity, which becomes apparent in terms of bass covering, making every single bass line particularly distinguishable. Louder than most compact Bluetooth speakers, it provides an atmospheric soundscape when placed in an outdoor situation such as our recent visit to the camping site. It is definitely suitable for a day-to-day usage.

FUNCTIONALITY
With many of nowadays common features such as Wi-Fi, AirPlay, and NFC remaining absent, one of The Get Together’s key components is the wireless Bluetooth function, which facilitates its overall functionality and enhances user-friendliness. It pairs a simple one-button process while USB port also functions as a charging station for any devices attached, making it an ideal asset for a convenient listening experience on a day-to-day basis. Volume control and the on-and-off functions are located at the top of the speaker, while the in-built 8-hour lithium ion battery grants a clear sound experiences for hours.

FINAL WORD
With The Get Together the user is receiving a full package. A standard level of inter-connectivity is provided with wireless Bluetooth function and its 3.5mm input component. Furthermore, The Get Together clearly outshines other speakers in terms of a unique design, a clear, bass-heavy sound and an outstanding battery life that matches the company’s high demand of eco-friendly sound coverage. A more than just time-friendly product.
