JLab's Epic earbuds: tight and punchyWe take a look at JLab's new $50 in-ear headphone, which features punchy sound and special wings that deliver a secure fit.
Hi. I'm David Carnoy, and I'm here with the JLab EPIC Earbuds. That's a big name to give to an in-ear headphone, especially one that costs $50. And I wouldn't say these are exactly epic, but they are a decent in-ear headphone. And the key here is they come with these little wings that help keep the earbuds securely in your ear. There are several different sizes of them. And you really have to find the one that fits in your ear to make sure it fits comfortably and securely. You also need to find the right silicone ear tip. There are a few different sizes. I went with the larger size because it is crucial with in-ear headphones to get a tight seal that gives you more bass. And these do deliver quite a bit of bass, decent clarity. Not a bad headphone for $50. They're a little bit pricey, they're a little bit plasticky, but they do have a flat head cone core design and a one-button inline remote that's a universal mic, so you can use it with cell phones. In terms of extras, these do come with a case. It's a little big for the size of these headphones, but it is a pretty nice case. So, a pretty decent headphone-- not necessarily epic, but a good $50 headphone. I'm David Carnoy, and those are the JLab EPIC in-ear headphones. Thanks for watching.
