JLab JBuds Frames & Go (Techfluence, May 2021)
Back to: Techfluence Virtual Tech Event Main Page (May 2021)
It’s “Audio Eyewear” that clip on to your (sun)glasses instead of clamping in or around your ears. So unlike traditional headphones or earbuds, these offer you some sense of relief.
Technology wise, the JBuds Frames are built with 16mm drivers and connect to your smartphone via BlueTooth (30 foot range). The two earpieces work independently, allowing users to use one or both at the same time. Battery life is 8 hours, charge time takes 2 hours, and has an IPx4 rating for safe use in light rain (for example).
JBuds Frames retail for $50 and come with a 2 year warranty.
JLab Go Work Headset
JLab Go wireless on-ear headsets offer multipoint connectivity that let you connect to multiple devices (like your smartphone and laptop) at the same time. It’s a great feature to have at work when you need to be aware of every call, message or email. They have an unbelieveable 45 hour playtime per charge, or if you prefer, it can also be used as a wired headset with the included USB-C to 3.5mm cable.
There’s an easy access mute button that lights up an LED on the mic, quickly letting you know if you’re muted or not. The dual mics also serve to remove ambient noise and becomes super useful in a busy office (we saw this in action and couldn’t really hear anything outside of what the rep we were chatting with was saying.)
The JLab Go work headsets look like they have nice, comfortable earpads. Retails for $50 with a 2 year warranty.
