JLab Audio has proven yet again why it deserves to be the American award-winning audio brand with a massive jump forward by introducing Smart ANC technology found exclusively in its new Epic Air ANC products. The two new earbuds, Epic Air Sport ANC and Epic Air ANC have now become the first true wireless earbuds to utilise JLab’s new Smart ANC technology and the JLab Air ANC app, with three noise control modes and the ability to fine-tune the sound by adjusting the equalizer settings. The Epic Air Sport ANC and Epic Air ANC are both currently on offer at £69.99 (RRP £99.99) from John Lewis. U.S. customers can purchase through Best Buy on offer at $49.99 reduced from $99.99.
Many people had concerns about the uncomfort some noise cancellation headphones and earbuds caused. JLab took this feedback seriously and developed its Smart Hybrid ANC technology as a response. Regardless of the manufacturer, a percentage of users have reported pain while using ANC products, which can go beyond discomfort and lead to headaches, dizziness, or even nausea. Using hybrid ANC, a combination of feedforward and feedback ANC, JLab’s Smart ANC adapts on-the-go to variants in the environment, earbud fit, and other factors to create the best audio and listening experience.
The company has also developed a new JLab Air ANC app where users can customise the active noise control level, pass-through audio, equaliser settings, and touch controls for each earbud. Both products include JLab’s Be Aware audio mode, which allows ambient noise in through the earbuds when turned on making the earbuds ideal for situations such as running or cycling outdoors to hear cars and other safety noises, or talking to friends or colleagues without having to pause the music and take the earbuds out.
JLab CEO, Win Cramer, commented, ‘JLab’s product team and engineers worked overtime creating a smart ANC true-wireless product line that is affordable and helps those who previously couldn’t use ANC products because they sensed a dramatic decrease in pressure when turned on. The JLab Air ANC app we developed for new JLab Epic Air Sport ANC and Epic Air ANC not only improves the experience for those who find active noise cancelling earbuds to be uncomfortable, but it allows every user to perfectly customise the audio experience and their unique touch control preferences to their personal needs.’
