The Jlab Go Air Sport earbuds are budget-friendly, stemless earbuds released in 2022. Their closed enclosure and wireless design make them convenient for a mobile lifestyle. While their overall sound quality is rated poor, they have a good comfort score, which could make them suitable for extended wear, such as during workouts or travel. These earbuds also feature very good built-in controls and mic quality, enhancing their usability for calls. They are sweat and dustproof certified, making them a durable choice for outdoor activities. However, their sound isolation is fair, and they may not be the best for noisy environments or for activities like air travel where noise cancellation is valuable. The Jlab Go Air Sport supports AAC codec for better audio with Apple devices but lacks features such as low latency, active noise cancelling, and an app equalizer. They are relatively lightweight at 6.6 grams and offer a secure fit with included ear hooks, but their size is large, which might affect portability for some users. Battery life is solid at 8 hours, extending to 32 hours with the charging case, though they lack wireless charging capabilities. A full charge takes about 2 hours. These earbuds might not be the go-to option for high fidelity music listening, gaming or watching TV as their sound quality isn't optimal for these experiences. However, they are a robust option for users who prioritize durability, comfort, and utility in calls or meetings, especially during physical activities. Give Feedback

PC Mag

Tim Gideon | April 2022
"If you want seriously bass-forward earphones for the gym, you'll be hard-pressed to find a pair more affordable than the JLab Go Air Sport. We like their long battery life and solid water-resistance rating, though we aren’t fans of their finicky on-ear controls and the case’s hardwired charging cable."
