JLab Epic Sport Wireless

 

The gym-friendly JLab Epic Sport Wireless earphones offer solid audio with variable EQ modes and a very secure fit.

Strong audio performance with full bass response and three EQ settings. Exceptionally secure in-ear fit. Sweat-proof design ideal for exercise.

Easy to skip tracks by accident. Sculpted sound signature not for everyone.

JLab's Epic Sport Wireless earphones deliver strong audio performance that can be adjusted. They'll appeal to those who like deep bass and want bright highs to balance it out, but will probably irk listeners who want the mids to be more consistently...

JLab Epic Bluetooth Earbuds

 

The wireless JLab Epic are solid fitness-focused earphones for workouts fueled by big bass.

Powerful, distortion-free audio performance with deep bass presence. Secure fit. Splash-proof design. Lots of useful accessories.

Overly bass-heavy for purists. Shortest charging cable ever?

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with intense sub-bass presence, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the Epic Bluetooth delivers a healthy dose of deep bass response without distorting, even at maximum volume levels. While we never recommend...

JLab Epic

 

The JLab Epic's booming bass won't be for everyone, but it delivers undistorted audio at a low price.

Powerful audio with no distortion at top volumes. Inline remote and microphone for mobile devices. Includes a plethora of accessories.

Booming bass can overtake the balance of the mix—these aren't for purists or fans of crisp, balanced audio. Eartips can be uncomfortable.

Basically, JLab equates the word "epic" with "booming bass." If you seek balance in your life, or at least your audio, the Epic will skew it and send everything to the lows and highs. This is a pair for big bass fans on a budget, plain and simple. If...

JLab Epic in-ear headphones review

 

When you name a product Epic, it's got some pretty big shoes to fill.

The JLab Epics are lightweight in-ear headphones that deliver good sound for a relatively modest price. They also fit comfortably, have a tangle-resistant flat cord, and come with a few different-sized Cush Fins that make them sit very securely in your...

They look a little cheap.

The JLab Epics may look a little cheap, but they offer a comfortable, secure fit, and sound richer than their design would indicate.

Great Sound and sporty

 

I have had these earbuds for a couple of years now. Very high quality sound, almost comparable to something much higher in cost. However they tend to break and I have had mine replaced twice.

Very high quality sound, almost comparable to something much higher in cost

The tend to break, or get a short easily. And sound quality seem to get lower over time.
