JLab makes some of the best workout headphones for under $100. We’ve tested several models over the past two years, from the unbeatable $20 Go Air Pop to the Tom’s Guide award-winning $79 Epic Air Sport ANC. Speaking of which, the latter was just updated for the company’s big Holiday 2022 rollout, and we got our hands on it. 

The Epic Air Sport ANC (2nd Gen) retains most of what made its predecessor a consumer favorite, including active noise cancellation (ANC), class-leading battery life, and a fitness-friendly design highlighted by ear hooks. JLab also added new features like built-in Tile functionality and wireless charging.
