- Comfortable with secure fit + great for all sports
- Good battery life + charging cradle makes things even better
- Bluetooth connection cuts out periodically
- Slightly complicated pairing process
- Audio quality is just average (still better than other true wireless earphones, including Apple AirPods)
- Odd remote system that incorporates gestures
The best true wireless sport headphones in a not yet crowded space. We like them—don’t love them—and probably won’t use them over our Jaybird X3s of Beats Powerbeats 3.
The Jlab Epic Air are pretty awesome, truly wireless earphones that are specifically designed for working out. They have a comfortable and secure fit with decent sound isolation and average audio quality. They won’t come out of your ear during workouts, but you won’t love the sound quality. They do have a somewhat complicated setup process and the remote system (volume/track manage) is cumbersome and unnatural; however, we don’t have any great suggestions to make it better since there’s not a lot of real estate to work with on the earphones. Bluetooth range and stability is also average at best. The signal cuts out sometimes and the range is inconsistent. This technology is really really hard to master. On the bright side though, battery life is really great at about 6-7 hours on a single charge and the charging cradle will get you even more battery life. Bottom line here is that they’re really good true wireless sport headphones, but there isn’t a lot of competition at the present time and we aren’t entirely convinced that these will unseat the X3s or Powebeats3.
