Sony Linkbuds have changed the way we experience open-ear audio in a space dominated by TWS headphones with higher ANC levels. When we wondered what else could stir up the field, JLab caught our attention for good.
Their latest pair of open-ear audio headphones completely revamps the perceived image of these similar headphones. With a forward design shift into the open-ear and sporty audio space, the JLab Open Sport is the perfect option to choose from among contemporary and bone conduction models.

So what makes these ordinary-looking headphones so special? Well, they can attach to the user’s glasses depending on the activity in question and of course the user’s preferences. Versatility is at the heart of these IPX4-rated headphones, and that too comes at a very attractive price of $80. Store them against Bose Sports Open headphones, Aftershokz Open Run Pro or Sony Linkbuds. The flexibility to use them with your glasses or sunglasses for a number of situations is what makes them worth every penny. Also worth considering is the lightweight construction of 27.8 grams, which is less than the heavyweights mentioned above.
They can adapt to any ear shape with the flexible ear hooks or hang from the arms of eyeglasses/sunglasses/reading glasses with adjustable clips. This makes the Open Sport Wireless Headphones ideal for the morning run, multitasking in the office, or casual listening during the daily commute. The modular buds offer 7 hours of battery life which can be extended to an additional 17 hours in the case. Since these headphones don’t create a seal, they let in ambient noise to keep you aware of the surroundings.
Multi-device connectivity is also not ignored with these headphones as they can sync with two devices simultaneously. The case of these feels a little flimsy as it’s not fully enclosed, and the headphones could fall out or be detached from the case with little force. Therefore, they are intended only for audio listeners who treat their belongings with great love and care. Other than that, the JLab Open Sport wireless headphones are worth their money for any type of audiophile!
