JLab challenges Skullcandy with $20 GO Air POP true wireless earbuds


Earlier this year, we reviewed the Skullcandy Dime true wireless earbuds and found them a steal at their $25 price point. JLab, whose headphones and earbuds we’ve also reviewed, is targeting the Skullcandy Dime and has just announced the $20 GO Air POP true wireless earbuds with even longer battery life.

In fact, JLab aims to outdo Skullcandy in every way. The GO Air POP feature touch controls, dual connect, over 32 hours of battery life, an IPX4 rating, and are available in five different colours. The earbuds also come with three sizes of gel tips, built-in EQ3 sound profiles for audio customization, a charging case smaller than a credit card, and an integrated USB cable for further convenience.

“The JLab brand has become synonymous with driving accessible innovation delivering products that everyone can afford. JLab launched the GO Air Pop to be the new tip of the spear in our true wireless portfolio, providing a gateway for new customers to experience true wireless technology and also shows the world that just because a product has an entry-level price, it can still have great features, benefits, and awesome technology.”

JLab CEO Win Cramer

JLab has even created a chart outlining the differences between their small earbuds and Skullcandy’s offering.
