CES 2015: aptX Bluetooth headphones among House of Marley's new products

One of the products to make a first appearance at the show are the Journey BT sport in-ear headphones, which come equipped with aptX Bluetooth wireless capabilities.

The buds have been created with "content and performance in mind", with an angled nozzle designed for a better fit and a flexible loop to ensure a more secure position when in use. A three-button controller is also provided. The Journey BTs are due to go on sale during the summer for $129. UK pricing is yet to be confirmed.
