Cheaper Alternative to Apple AirPods?

The JBuds Air wireless earbuds from JLab Audio only cost $49! so if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to Apple’s AirPods, take a look at these.

They also fit differently than Apple’s AirPods, and come with silicone ear tips in different sizes, so if the AirPods don’t fit in your ear, these may be worth checking out for that reason.

The biggest downside, as per reviews, is that phone calls are only in the right earbud, not both.

Wired’s review of the JBuds Air earbuds rates them a 7 out of 10, and says, “They’re not perfect, but they’re one of the smartest ways to spend $50 on headphones.”

The 9 to 5 Toys review of the JBuds Air says, “If you’re on the fence of purchasing Apple’s AirPods, why not give the JBuds Air a shot?”

Headphone Review gives the JBuds Air a score of 8.4 out of 10 and says, “At $50 it’s hard to expect the JLab JBuds Air to sound great–but in reality, they don’t sound bad at all.”
