UNBOXED: Reviewing the JLab Air Icon True Wireless Headphones
We already know the story with JLab Audio. They’re one of the fastest growing personal audio brands here in the U.S., and they’re starting to grow that name internationally—as we saw in Berlin at IFA 2019. And how they’ve done it is by building a strong line up of products that perform well beyond their insanely low price points.
One particular line that has been impressing us of late is the JBuds Air true wireless headphones. JLab now has four different options available under the JBuds banner, including the original JBuds Air, the JBuds Air Executive, the JBuds Air Sport (essentially the rebranded Epic Air Sport buds from last year), and the more recent JBuds Air Icon that we have our hands on now.
Incredibly, the entire lineup is priced under $70, with the Air Icons that we’re looking at for this review coming in at $59. What the JBuds Air Icon can be boiled down to is an upgraded version of the original JBuds Air true wireless headphones. For $10 more, users receive 10 extra hours of battery life, dual connect (which we’ll get into), and stereo calling. There’s also the added gold JLab logo and accents on the side of the buds that class these bad boys up just a bit.
