The JLab Go Air Pop earbuds are budget-friendly, stemless, and have a closed enclosure design. They're wireless with good soundstage and comfort, excellent build quality, and very good built-in controls. Their overall sound quality is fair, performing decently with music but poorly for calls, meetings, and gaming, and they are not the best for TV and video. They're suitable for exercise with a sweatproof certification, very lightweight, and offer best-in-class portability with a small carrying size. However, they lack active noise cancelling, which affects noise isolation. The earbuds have a 9-hour battery life, with the case providing an additional 27 hours. They do not support wireless charging, and it takes 2 hours to charge them. There's no virtual surround feature and the microphone quality is fair. They also don't have an app for equalizer or audio control customization. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Portability:
5.0
The Portability score is based on an overall assessment that includes volume and maximum dimension of the product (and case, if relevant), and its weight. Special features like foldability for headphones are also taken into account.
Battery Life:
5.0
The Battery Life rating is based on hours of typical, actual usage.
Air Travel:
4.7
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
Exercise:
4.2
This score evaluates the product when used for exercise and physical activity. It mainly takes into account comfort, whether or not the products are sweatproof and how secure are the earbuds or headphones while wearing them. We also consider products with wireless capabilities to be more suitable for this particular scenario
Music:
4.1
This evaluates the product when used solely to listen to music. It takes into account the sound quality, whether or not they support high quality codecs, their ability to reproduce soundstage, and whether or not it has any virtual surround capabilities.
TV & Video:
3.1
This score evaluates the earbuds or headphones when used to watch videos, movies and TV. In the case of wireless products, it takes into account latency - the perceived delay between the action on screen and the sounds playing in your ears. The score also considers soundstage quality, whether they have a virtual surround feature, and overall comfort. It’s important to note that the device paired with the earbuds heavily influences their performance in regards to latency or delay.

Sam Smart | August 2023
"The JLab GO Air POP is a great option for anyone on a tight budget. This pair of true wireless earbuds checks all the boxes for earbud essentials, and performs pretty well in most areas. The microphone isn't great, but that's to be expected for something this inexpensive."
