House of Marley Bag of Riddim Bluetooth Portable Speaker System

Product Information

  • Overview

    Bag of Riddim Bluetooth speakers are an earth-friendly, wireless, portable audio system from House of Marley. The unique portable design uses a REWIND fabric carry bag made of organic cotton, hemp and RPET (recycled plastics). An integrated auxiliary input lets you connect hundreds of phones and music players and a built-in USB port is included to charge them. Bag of Riddim delivers enough bass to fill a room, a backyard barbeque, or a beach party with powerful and lively sound.

    Sound

    House of Marley's approach to sound quality is all about realism. The objective is to deliver the musical content to you with as much energy, emotion, inflection, nuance, and attitude as the original performance. Whether it's a live recording or a heavily mastered studio mix, the goal is for you to hear every detail as it occurred when the original sonic moment was captured.

    Superior quality

    The House of Marley is committed to delivering best-in-class products that provide a lifetime of realistic and powerful performance. They're soulfully designed and engineered to perform by audio experts with more than thirty years of audio engineering and development experience.

    Earth friendly

    In parts where plastic must be used, Marley incorporates the highest possible percentage of recycled material. Bag of Riddim provides a high level of style and a great, tactile user experience through the use of natural fabrics such as cotton and hemp. Marley's unique blended REWIND fabric is made from discarded fibers of hemp, organic cotton, and recycled plastic (RPET), so it's not only sustainable and recycled in its first round of use, but is repurposed for a second time around.

    Cause minded

    Marley products support 1Love.org, the Marley family charitable organization. This global movement is dedicated to supporting youth, planet, and peace. 1Love.org partners with charities that empower people to take action.

  • Bag of Riddim well worth the money

    5.0 out of 5 stars

Well now since The House of Marley have updated it with bluetooth I was sold. It has house shaking amazing sound! Deep bass can satisfy any genre of music lover. Easy to tote around as it's a comfortably weight but looks and feels great outside of it's sack sitting on a shelf or counter as well. Bluetooth is easy to set up and only takes seconds.

    Far better sound than many $600-800 systems.

    The only downfall that might sway some buyers is the lack of a rechargeable battery but I wasn't overly concerned with it.

    Very happy with this product and the quality.

    It kills me to write such a bad review. Over the past 3-4 months i have been fighting a battle with this product. When the bluetoo It kills me to write such a bad review. Over the past 3-4 months i have been fighting a battle with this product. When the bluetooth edition came out it was a must have. Well over the past 3-4 months i've had 3 different "house of marley bag of riddim" and all 3 have had the same issue. The bluetooth connectivity gives out and my third one wont charge through the output cables. Its a shame that this product is having such issues. But when it works, its flawless, loud enough for a small party or the beach. My question to anyone else whose purchased this product, are you having bluetooth connectivity issues?

  • Great product and sound, but there are Bluetooth problems.

    I purchased this speakers last spring.
    Have to say that quality of sound is amazing and it can get loud. One of the main advanta I purchased this speakers last spring.
    Have to say that quality of sound is amazing and it can get loud. One of the main advantages is ability to connect with bluetooth, but if bluetooth does not work as expected- it brings a great disappointment.
    I have an iPhone 5 and when I play music via bluetooth on some point music is not transmitted anymore and speakers produce only silence, while iPhone is actually transmitting data through BT and song is being played (but no sound from speakers). From my experience it works just fine with other devices (like my MacBook Air or android phones etc), so I think the problem it actually in iPhone, even more specifically- in its software. I installed iOS7, but problem stayed there. Also I read online that this problem occurs with a quite lot of bluetooth audio devices used with latest iPhones (starting from 5) and softwares (starting from iOS6). One suggestion was to put your wi-fi off, because BT and WI-FI work in one frequency range so they might interfere and cause this confusion (even if it works for you- its bad solution if you like to use both or listen music from internet).
    I still have my iPhone 4 with old iOS and as soon as I get charger for it- I will test if it works without interruptions.
    Overall these speakers are really great designed, very reliable (it can tolerate bear all over them while working, hits, traveling, sand inside, humid and dry climate and so on). Sound is also very good and clear, base is strong and in general it is a good buy. I just hope that Apple fixes bluetooth problem... For these money I expected everything to work perfect, but again- it is not fault of House of Marley.

    Fantastic design, sound, function. I have experienced the bluetooth connectivity issue, it happens when you have too much going Fantastic design, sound, function. I have experienced the bluetooth connectivity issue, it happens when you have too much going on, too many signals like surfing the web, texting and playing from your phone, you just turn off the unit and turn it back on, press play, turn up the volume... fixed. I have the I phone 5 and honestly I think it is the phone, not the sound system since it never ever even once dropped off from my computers connection.
    I love the USB charger thats built in; when I have friends text bombing me and calling I just use my older ipod via the regular plug in option. I have this with the optional chargeable battery and I highly recommend it. Makes for nice portability, I actually use it in my van instead of replacing its head unit, sounds better than that ride ever did anyway. Also I have a few rare times had a weird issue where the unit wont turn on, I just unplug the battery for 5 seconds and plug it back in and it works perfect. All in all Ive had this unity since it became available and I love it! Just ordered the non portable unit for an office. Let the music rock you!! Fantastic sound... would be great for a street performer!
