JLab GO Air POP True Wireless Earbuds
For $20 these Jlab Go Air POP wireless earbuds have enough sound and build quality to make them a bargain. If you work out, take long walks with podcasts, or do anything where you might perspire, these are a must. Nerdable Recommended.
Design And Comfort
The Go Air Pop earbuds from JLab are the smallest on the market and maintain a bold, simplistic design that’s sure to catch eyes due to their unique coloring.
They shrunk it down 15% compared to previous releases, and for $19.99, you can’t beat them when comparing inflated brand prices of other ear pods on the market.
Despite this smaller size, the JLab Go Air POP Earbuds are extremely stable while exercising. They will stay in place, and you won’t have to worry about them falling out as a result of movement.
Plus, the Go Air POP earbuds don’t trap heat against your ears, which is definitely a positive of the design:
When it comes to comfort, the JLab Audio GO Air POP True Wireless sports earbuds have a somewhat deeper fit. This may take a little getting used to, but they do come with some silicone ear tips to help find the best fit for you.
Controls And Digital Assistant
JLab packed a music player, controls, and digital assistant tools on the True Wireless earbuds.
You can manage calls, playback, volume, and EQ activation with one touch. On-ear detection for auto-pause/play didn’t make the cut.
They do have some limitations, like the right earbud’s play/pause button is fiddly. It doesn’t respond well to its assigned input and gets mistaken for volume a lot of the time.
Another thing, when multiple taps are required to activate Siri/Google Assistant or cycle through the EQs, the multi-tap function doesn’t always register well.
Unsurprisingly, these aren’t earbuds to suit audiophiles, but — for earbuds occupying this remarkably low price bracket — they sound pretty darn good.
You will find these earbuds lacking in sound clarity if you’re used to listening to top-end earbuds that cost 10x more, such as the Sony WF-1000XM4 and the AirPods Pro.
Yet, for a fraction of the price, you still get excellent sound quality and durability for the cost.
There are actually three different equalizer modes in these JLAB headphones, each with its own function.
- Balanced Mode for High Definition sound quality
- Signature Mode for powerful sub-bass and unsurpassed clarity
- Bass Boost Mode helps you get the low-down on your music
More so, the JLab Signature is the best setting to use across genres of music. And its balanced mode is best for listening to podcasts and watching videos.
While the bass boost setting somewhat overpowers the music and makes the vocals much harder to understand, it does exactly what it says on the tin, adding a bit more oomph to the audio.
The buds have a battery life of around 7 hours before needing to be charged again.
One area where these earbuds do suffer is, call quality. While you can use them for calls if you know your caller well enough, the person you are calling may be put off having to ask you to repeat yourself more often than would seem natural otherwise.
- Affordable on almost all budgets
- They are IPX5 water-resistant, making them perfect for long walks and workouts
- Built-in charging cable for convenience
- 7-hour battery life.
- No accompanying app for EQ customization
- No ANC (Active Noise Cancellation)
- Terrible call quality.
