Apple’s new iPhone 7 has been available for pre-order, and people who are buying them might also want to consider the JLab Flex Bluetooth headphones. With the headphone jack removed you’ll need to use the Apple dongle or go wireless someway. The AirPods cost $159 and are just wireless earbuds with a few proprietary Apple features. The JLab Flex Bluetooth headphones are $149, with an over the ear design, and noise cancelling. We’re not saying Apple’s AirPods are bad, just that there are other options out there and these look like a great option.

SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – Sept. 13, 2016 – The award-winning personal audio company JLab Audio announces its next innovation: The Flex Bluetooth™ Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). JLab Audio’s advanced JQuiet™ Active Noise-Canceling technology cancels 94 percent of unwanted background noise for half the price of competitors’ headphones. The Flex Bluetooth™ Headphones provide up to 60 hours of noise-cancelling playtime, 30 hours of Bluetooth™ playtime or 10 hours of noise-cancelling playtime with Bluetooth™. The Flex Bluetooth™ Headphones are now available at www.JLabAudio.com/flexanc.
“The world is full of distractions—airplane noise, conversations, traffic—that interfere with music, podcasts and focus,” said Win Cramer, President, JLab Audio. “Thanks to our progressive technology, the Flex Bluetooth™ Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation remove those distractions, still at an approachable price.”
JLab Audio’s award-winning sound completes the package. The C3™ (Crystal Clear Clarity) technology delivers a clean, crisp, immersive sound with vibrant highs, mids and pumping bass through pristine high performance neodymium backed 40mm drivers. The comfortable Form-Fit™ Earcups with Cloud Foam™ have a 20-degree tilt allowing for perfect positioning on the ears. The universal mic and track controls allow listeners to effortlessly adjust volume, skip tracks, answer and hang-up calls or quickly turn the noise canceling capability on and off, all with a few clicks of a button.
With a perfectly molded stainless steel metal headband lined with an ultra-plush 1/2-inch wide Cloud Foam™ cushion these headphones can be worn non-stop for hours and hours. The inside of the earcups are molded impeccably to the ear and reinforced on the outside with iodized alloy for ultimate resilience and vigorous use. This one-of-a-kind shape, combined with a 3/4-inch thick cushion earcup, is so comfortable that JLab Audio offers a 100 percent satisfaction money-back guarantee on these rocking headphones as well as a lifetime warranty. Weighing approximately a half-pound, the Flex Bluetooth™ Headphones are lighter than most over-the-ear headphones and have industrial grade hinges to collapse the headphones into the palm of the hand or to store in the included carrying case.
