The build quality of The House of Marley Champion is well worth the price. It has a unique texture that incorporates natural materials to provide a warm, welcoming feel.
The fit is good, but a little unstable.
I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with AAC.
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. The sound is momentarily cut off when an obstruction is placed in between, and communication is somewhat disrupted afterwards, but communication is restored after a short while and the music can be heard 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 sound signature of The House Of Marley Champion is heavy V-shaped with emphasis on the low and upper mid-high frequencies, providing a high sense of contrast.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Sound quality general comment
While The House Of Marley generally favors a warm, mild, tropical, cheerful sound, Champion's tuning is an exception.
It extends the high frequencies and delivers a more glistening sound, with an emphasis on subtlety, so if you are expecting the usual smooth sound, you may be surprised to hear rather the opposite.
Sound quality features
- Heavy low frequency range
- Sound with a sense of depth
- High sense of clarity
- High contrast
- Relatively good high-frequency extension
- Dark and thin midrange
- High frequencies that are too aggressive and bright
- Consonants, including the grinding sound, are easily sharpened
- Easy to get tired of listening to
The House Of Marley Champion is for those who like a highly contrasted and exciting thumping sound. Its low frequency range is tight and massive, but it is not the usual mild and smooth expression of HOM, so it is not suitable for existing HOM fans. It is an entry-level product, but it is not an entry-level HOM product.
