I feel like every review of these headphones will start with “for the money, these headphones are great.” Well, I’ll put a slightly different spin on things with “for the money, these headphones are good.” I can recommend them for the audio quality while listening to music during a workout. They are comfortable and sound much better than wireless bud headphones priced much higher, but they still have a few quirks and are far from perfect. If you can live with those quirks for the price, then you’ll probably enjoy these headphones quite a lot.
Set up was quite easy and I really like the travel case with its built-in charging cable. The indicator lights are bright, and I believe JLAB when they say these headphones will last around 40 hours. So far, battery life has been great.
I like the sound on these headphones, but wireless buds have always had an airy / tinny sound to them, and these, while better than others, still suffer a bit in that regard. The sound is richer, and the bass is much more pronounced than similar earbuds from JVC and I’d even argue apple’s air pods. But they aren’t going to sound as good as a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones that share a wired connection to each other.
Instead of buttons that you can feel click, these earbuds have “touch sensors”. Both the left and right earbud have these built in sensors and tapping / holding the sensors enables and disables various functions. For example, pressing the left touch sensor once turns down the volume, pressing it twice enables SIRI, pressing and holding the left sensor for one second plus causes the track to go back, pressing the right sensor three times enables or disables be aware mode. If that sounds confusing to you, it is very confusing and non-functional in my experience. Instead of changing my aware mode, I find myself turning the volume up or pausing my music. It seems like my presses aren't always registering and it has been incredibly frustrating using the touch sensors for anything other than playing / pausing, turning the volume up, or taking a call.
So far, I haven't had problems with the headphones disconnecting from the phone, but I noticed when watching some YouTube videos, that my left headphone would occasionally get out of sync with the right one. It created a bit of an echo effect, but it only happened once or twice through hours of testing.
Phone calls were a bit… disappointing. People on the other end of the call told me I sounded like I was in a tunnel. I found the headphones, instead of just playing the sound evenly from both earbuds, wanted to transfer the caller from right to left earbud and vice versa. It was a bit distracting and occasionally the call would cut out as the headphones seemed to re-calibrate the audio. It wasn’t an awful experience, but it wasn’t good, either.
There is an app to burn-in your headphones and loosen the speaker diaphragms. It’s completely optional, but you should know that the sound quality of your headphones will likely improve the longer you use them.
In conclusion, as sweat resistant work-out headphones, I think these are pretty good headphones. For the price, they perform very well. I’m not sure I will ever get used to the touch sensor buttons and I won’t be using these buds for phone calls any time soon, but still, for the money, the audio is quite good.
JLAB's new JBuds Air Sport true wireless headphones have both a comfortable fit and the ability to hear sounds around you.
-= Design and Fit =-
The ear hooks on the JBuds Air Sport provide a very secure fit compared to other truly wireless earbuds that simply sit in your ear. The soft ear hooks fit comfortably around my ears and stayed in place during workouts and running.
I do find that the sweatier I get, the "seal" into my ear canal can work loose and I lose some of the bass, but the ear hooks keeps the earbuds from falling completely off of my ear. So if you're purchasing these for working out, you shouldn't be disappointed, but please note that this "seal" also creates an underwater-like effect, meaning I can hear every footstep vibration amplified when these earbuds are in.
The "buttons" on these earbuds are really just touch sensors. They can be activated inadvertently while adjusting the earbuds, but they generally work well for playing and pausing music, as well as rewinding and skipping tracks.
-= Sound Quality =-
The sound quality is very good on these earbuds. When seated properly in your ear, the JBuds earbuds have a very good bass output and mids and highs also sound very balanced.
The sound quality is not quite up there with Apple AirPods, but at half the price, the JBuds Air Sport earbuds have more than acceptable sound quality.
The JBuds Air Sport headphones also have 3 music EQ settings that, thankfully, do not require a separate app in order to activate. The three available settings are:
JLab Signature (my preference as it also enhances the bass)
-= Features =-
Be Aware Audio
One feature I was very much lucking forward to was the Be Aware Audio. This can be activated by tapping the right earbud 3 times (unfortunately, there's no voice prompt to let you know if the feature is on or off). When activated, the headphones use the mics on the earbuds to let you hear what is going on around you. Normally, the headphones will muffle outside noises as the tips "seal out" your ear canal.
Unfortunately, I found this feature can be disorienting. Since the mics are amplifying the sounds around you, they can sound louder than they really are and you can't tell from which direction the noise is coming. This felt very confusing to me and, when running outside, I still prefer the Apple AirPods since they don't muffle outside noises and you can naturally hear what's going on.
Talking with the Be Aware Audio feature on would amplify my voice back to me and make it sound robotic, which was very distracting when trying to talk to someone.
IP66 Sweat Resistance
The JBuds Air Sport headphones have an IP66 water resistance rating, meaning that sweat and splashes are OK, but these should not be submerged in water (for example, don't wear them while in the pool). You must dry the earbuds before returning them to the charging case.
-= Connection =-
The connection between the left and right headphone seems to do fairly well. Indoors, I don't really experience a lot of issues with the sound cutting out between the two headphones unless I'm near a router or other interference. Outdoors, the sound cutouts are slightly more frequent, especially if I wear my phone on the left side of my body (it pairs with the right earbud). Overall, I'm very pleased with the connection stability.
It's important to note that the right earbud is the master, so if you want to use only one earbud, it must be the right one. The left earbud cannot be used independently.
-= Battery Life and Charging =-
On a full charge, the JBuds Air Sport headphones last up to 6 hours and the charging case can recharge the earbuds about 4-5 additional times, so you could get up to 34 hours of usage when the case and earbuds are fully charged. In a pinch, charging the earbuds for 15 minutes will give you up to an hour of playback time.
It's important to line up the charging pins properly when returning the earbuds to the case or they may not make a solid connection. There is a magnet in the case that helps "pull" the headphones into the correct spot, but you'll want to verify that the blue charging indicators light up on each headphone.
The earbuds and charging case are somewhat bulky, especially when compared to the Apple AirPods. They definitely don't fit in my jean's pockets. I was surprised to find that the charging case has a built-in USB cable, which is very convenient as you don't need to remember to bring along your own cable.
Ok... I LOVE these. Never have I tried earbuds that were so comfortable, so easy to set up and sounded so good! I have been trying different types of earbuds for some time in search of those that would be comfortable and would stay in my ears. Finally - I found them - JBuds Air Sport are amazing!!
I opened the box and the earbuds were in their hard shell charging case. Beautiful. Already partially charged, I put them on. Put a bud in each ear, slipped the wing over my ear and turned it. They went perfectly into place... Oh so comfortable. Then amazingly it started setting itself up without my doing anything... When it said it was ready to pair, I grabbed my iPhone and paired it - just that easy.. Setup done!
I opened a playlist and the sound was clear and crisp in my ears. There are 3 EQ settings, I liked the base. The settings are done with little taps to the sensors on each earbud. You don't have to always press... just tap... Once, twice, etc... Depending on what you want to do. Tapping is nice so I'm not having to shove them in my ear canal as I do with some earbuds. There is a little guide that shows you what the taps do. It is a small learning curve but not difficult.
You can connect to your phone's assistant - Google or Siri quite easily and she heard me and I heard her. Cool feature. You can tell the assistant to place calls for you or ask it whatever you want. You can answer calls and the caller hears you and I clearly heard them.
The charging cord for these is amazing. You don't need a separate cord... The cord is built in! And it's a simple usb... Just plug it in! It is short but you won't lose it and it's simple. Brilliant!
I cannot speak highly enough about these JBuds earbuds. I highly recommend these for anyone who wants a comfortable secure great sounding truly wireless earbud
I love the accessories included with these headphones. You get a charging case and a variety of foam tips to fit your ears.
Overall the sound is clear with a decent amount of bass. The sound was flat at first, but the more I have listened the bass has improved as they break in. Give these a few days to sound their best. Now the only complaint I have is that I could use another notch or two of volume.
The soft touch controls really have too many functions for only two buttons and I often end up triggering the wrong action when doing a double/triple tap.
Sometimes the left ear bud takes a few seconds to start playing after a long pause, but they did stayed synced.
I would recommend these. The soft touch controls can be an issue, but they are great for work outs and the case is great.
The jbuds are a very good option in the wireless headphone market. The charging case holds a charge for, in my case, a least 4 days. I haven't tried to use the headphones all day to see how long the battery will last but I use them every day and they seem to last the whole day. There was a breaking in period for them to start to feel comfortable in my ear but after a while they became comfortable.
A:AnswerThey are loud, but I am not a fan of the bass. In my opinion, these offer little to none in the way of bass. They aren’t a bad sound and the price point is good, but if you are looking for a rich, full range, with good bass, look elsewhere.
They do have a low profile, and are made of a hard material. When you get a sec, please reach out to us via email, firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone (405)445-7219 m-thur pst fri 8-3 pst so that we may provide you with further detail.
