House of Marley updates its Exodus headphones with ANC
House of Marley has released a new version of its foldable Exodus over-ear headphones. This version has a darker wood trim rather than naturally-colored in the originals in addition to its new function: active noise cancellation (ANC). However, the new product retains the 50 mm "Hi-Definition" drivers from its immediate predecessor.
As with most devices from this company, Exodus ANC is made of responsibly-sourced or recyclable materials, including FSC-certified ash (for that new accent), stainless steel and aluminum. Each pair also includes a 1000mAh battery with an estimated 28-hour battery life with ANC on, which may extend to 80 hours in normal mode. It is charged using a USB type-C port, which can deliver 6 hours' worth of playback after 15 minutes of being plugged in.
The updatedHuawei unveils the FreeBuds 3: AirPod-alikes but with a round charging case headphones also integrate an inboard mic for calls and voice control. It also has volume and playback controls for device-independent track management. There is also a Monitor mode, which is an equivalent of the Transparency function found in Apple and Beats audio products. The new Exodus ANC go for US$249.99 on House of Marley's website.
