The exterior build quality meets the price range standards; it is beautifully designed with the tactile feel of The House Of Marley's unique natural materials.
The fit is good. Small ears probably won't be a problem.
I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with aptX.
I don't know because I haven't been in crowds, but it is stable in the home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. If obstructed by a barrier, the sound is choppy and difficult to hear consistently.
There may be a small amount of background noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

REW Frequency ResponseSound quality
Sound quality description
The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with an SBC connection.
The House Of Marley Rebel has a V-shaped thumping sound with emphasis on the low and upper midrange to mid-highs. The House Of Marley consistently emphasizes the low frequencies that produce the raw rhythms of reggae, EDM and hip-hop, and Rebel is no exception.
Quality low frequencies seem to be the most important factor in The House Of Marley's nature-loving sound design. When we are in our mother's womb, the first thing we hear is her heartbeat and her mother's voice echoing inside us, which we hear as bass. The sounds of the primordial world that we experience for the first time in our lives are in the low frequencies, and the quality of the low frequencies is essential for a natural musical experience.
Rebel has always had a rich and realistic low frequency range of rumble, but it also has a dedicated equalizer that, when turned on, produces an even more powerful groove.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Sound quality general comment
The sound balance itself does not seem bad, producing a deep low frequency range that is difficult to obtain, and a sleek yet elegant, sweetly atmospheric midrange, but the audio specs seem significantly lacking for the price.
Sound quality features
- Deep bass (enhanced by EQ)
- Sweet and colorful sound
- Mild highs with little sting
- Sound with dynamism
- Excellent groove
- Excellent sense of envelopment and immersion
- Excellent sense of presence
- Low resolution
- Low fidelity of original sound
- Lacks exhilaration
- Lacks clarity
- Lacks high frequency extension
The House Of Marley Rebel offers a dynamic and immersive sound with deep, dark lows that create rich grooves and colorful, lustrous mids and highs. The design emphasizes the warmth and natural textures that are typical of the HOM, and the appearance is lovely. However, the resolution does not quite meet the price standard, making it difficult to give it a high recommendation.
