JLab JBuds Air Pro review: Inexpensive sports buds with strong sound

The JLab JBuds Air Pro is a sequel to one of the best cheap wireless earbuds: the JBuds Air. It retains much of what still makes the original a top seller through online retailers, including bass-centric sound, durable construction, instant auto-connect capabilities, and a tiny charging case with integrated USB cable. This version also comes with some upgrades like an ambient listening mode, longer battery life, and multipoint technology (pair to two devices simultaneously).

JLab JBuds Air Pro: specs

Colors: Black

Battery life (rated): 9 hours; 36 hours (charging case)

Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.1 (codecs: AAC and SBC)

Water resistance: Yes (IP55 rated)

Size: 0.88 x 1.03 x 0.83 inches (per bud); 2.87 x 1.48 x 1.20 inches (charging case)

Weight: 0.18 ounces (per bud); 1.12 ounces (charging case)

That’s an enticing package for just $60, though compromises come attached to the low MSRP, most of which are carried over from past brand releases (it’s time to update the charging system, JLab). Despite its shortcomings, the JBuds Air Pro is a reputable gym partner that can be had for nearly half of what some of the best workout headphones sell for.
