It’s hard to order a pair of earphones without hearing them first, but JLab has managed to throw that notion out the window thanks to its latest gadget’s design alone. The brand’s unique Open Sport wireless earbuds have an open-ear design and modular composition that lets you adjust your listening experience.
Sound-wise, the brand’s signature Lab Quality Sound tech lets you shift between two different EQ modes (Signature and Balanced) for a personalized listen based on the content at hand. But, if we’re being honest, audio quality isn’t what makes these open-ear buds so noteworthy. With a remarkably lightweight of 27.8 grams, the Open Sport buds also weigh less than either open-ear pairs from Bose or Sony, which shows that these are still high-end from a compositional perspective.
On top of that, they are impressively durable, as they boast an IPX4 rating, which parallels similar options from the previously mentioned brands. You can wear the modular buds several ways, but the most intriguing option comes courtesy of their neighboring glasses clips. These attach to each bud and can adjust to three different widths, so it’s capable of securing any form of eyeglasses or shades. Additionally, you can use the Open Sport’s custom-molding ear hooks, too.
Whether you’re a regular gym-goer or looking for new work-appropriate earbuds, JLab’s latest product might convince you that there’s no need to shell out. The gadgeteer’s Open Sport wireless earbuds are available on its online store for $80.
