JLab JBuds Pro
In a world where big brand names like Sony and JBL rule the headphone marketplace, it is often hard for the little guys to make a name for themselves. JLab is a relatively new company as far as the audio market is concerned having been founded in 2005. They are an American company, however, with roots in Tucson and a headquarters in Carlsbad, so if nothing else, here we have a quality company with American-made products on our hands.
When they JLabs hit the market, their main focus was on providing consumers with affordable in-ear headphones but since their founding, they have moved on to provide both premium in- and over- ear headphones as well as wireless options and speakers.
Today we are going to be taking a close look at one of their Bluetooth in-ear offerings – the JLabs JBuds Pro. These are budget-priced headphone option that provides users with unprecedented comfort for such a low, affodable price tag. Though they won’t be blowing any minds with technological advances the likes of Apple with their Air Pods, this is still a viable headphone option for people who prefer the simple things in life like good sound quality, a comfortable fit and ambient noise reduction. Let’s continue on and see just what else the JBuds Pro have to offer.
-Comfortable for extended wear
-Handy clip will help keep the headphones in place during activities
-Great sound quality for the price
-Audio sometimes fades in and out
-Microphone may not be of the highest quality
-Some users have had difficulties with the Bluetooth connection
There are three different sound styles to choose from based on your personal preferences – Signature, Balanced or Bass Boost. We liked this feature as customizing the sound we want from our headphones is a unique option that most higher-priced headphones don’t even offer.
The JLabs JBuds Pro provide the standard 30 feet of wireless range as most similar products on the market do. We found it interested that such a budget-priced headphone offering would have voice controls, making Siri and Google Assistant accessible to users. This is a unique addition to the connectivity offered here and we absolutely loved this feature.

-IP55 rating to provide protection from dust, water and sweat

Sure, JLab may not have the most dedicated following, especially when we are comparing them to brands that have been around forever like Sony or JBL, but that shouldn’t discount their credibility. We recommend these headphones to anyone who is in the market for something to wear during their commutes or to drown out the sounds of the office or even for use during your workouts. Looking at the sound quality, the JBuds Pro certainly won’t perform to audiophile standards so you folks can mosey on over to something a little more sophisticated. But for the average consumer, these will work just fine.
