The JLab Go Work Wireless headphones are a budget-friendly choice tailored for work, with an emphasis on call and meeting quality. They offer wireless convenience with a foldable boom microphone that isn’t removable but can be tucked out when not in use. These headphones are designed for a comfortable over-ear fit and deliver good overall sound, though with some limitations they may not be the best option for music aficionados. They don’t feature active noise cancelling, which can be a compromise if you are in noisy environments. With up to 45 hours of battery life, they are great for long workdays, but may not be the first choice for those looking for enhancement features like virtual surround sound during gaming or watching TV.

Headphone Check

Maike Paeßens | 2021
"If you are going to criticise the JLab Go Work, it would be for the cables, which are to some extent too short for their intended use, and for its rather harsh treble reproduction above moderate volume levels in music mode. However, the call quality during telephone calls and video conferences in voice mode via wireless and via cable is impeccable. This handy Bluetooth headset also scores points with its excellent battery life and support for multipoint connections."
