Jbuds Air True Wireless Earbuds for Every Lifestyle
As a family of 5 music lovers we are constantly trying out new ways to listen to our favorite tunes, and with 3 of those music lovers in their teens, we are also constantly replacing lost or broken earbuds. Now that is a problem, as a decent pair of true wireless earbuds are not exactly cheap. I always wondered if there was a brand out there that didn't cost a fortune but delivered a reasonable level of sound quality. Well it turns out there is such a company; JLab Audio is the #1 manufacturer of True Wireless Headphones for under $100. Best Buy recently sent us three pairs of JBuds Air True Wireless Earbuds to test and try, with each set customized to meet the specific needs of different lifestyles. We received the new sport-inspired JBuds Air Sport, the business-inspired JBuds Air Executive, and the JBuds Air Icon, an upgraded everyday option. Let's take a look at the various options.
Jbuds Air Sport
Made for an active lifestyle, the Jbuds Air Sport earbuds feature a long playtime and upgraded sweat resistance. The earbuds hold enough charge to go 6 hours, and the case holds another 34 hours of charge time. An IP66 rating means dirt and sweat stay out of the earbuds, so there is no worry while using the Jbuds Air Sport earbuds at the gym. The buds automatically turn themselves on and connect to your device when you remove them from the case.
Another feature of note is the Be Aware Audio function. This allows you to hear your surroundings while say running. When you turn this feature on, the earbuds blend the outside ambient sounds in with your music. Control of the earbuds is accomplished with touch. With the tap of a finger you can change songs, adjust volume, or take a call. These buds are currently (as of this writing) selling for $69.99 over at Best Buy, so they represent a very nice value for the features offered.
Jbuds Air Executive
The Jbuds Air Executive earbuds are designed for the business world. As a result, the case is smaller and more discreet than the other offerings, and the design of the buds themselves a bit more reserved. They share some of the features of the Sport model, such as the auto on and connect feature and custom eq settings. These buds also boast a 6 hour battery life, but the small case of the Jbuds Air Executive holds a little less reserve charge (24 hrs). An IP rating of IP55 means the Air Executive Series offer a reasonable level of dust and moisture protection.
C3 Calling is one of the features that is unique to the Air Executive Series. This feature adds upgraded dual microphones to the buds, which allows for stereo audio and the elimination of surrounding noise while on a call.
Jbuds Air Icon Series
The Jbuds Air True Wireless Earbuds Icon Series are the cheapest option of the three earbud lines. Currently selling for less than $60 over at Best Buy, these buds offer a ton of value for the money. An IP55 rating means the Air Icon Series offers protection from dust and water. This is a nice thing to see, as there are some very expensive options out there that do not offer this. Playtime for the Air Icon series is 6 hours, and the case holds an additional 18 hours of charge. You also get stereo calling, Auto connect, and custom eq setting. Additionally, the Air Icon earbuds are dual connect. In other words, these buds are independent of one another. Use just the left, right, or both buds; it doesn't matter. They connect independently to your device, so you will never miss a connection.
