The new JLab Audio true wireless earbuds boast 70 hours of playtime for $149
JLab Audio has announced the new Epic Air Sport true wireless earbuds. These are the third pair of headphones in the Epic Air lineup, following the original Epic Air and the Epic Air Elite.
These brand new earbuds will come with a 70-hour battery life, including the case. They have Bluetooth, Be Aware Audio, and more.
The Epic Air Sport boast a 10-hour battery life in the earbuds with an additional 60 hours through the charging case, which is one of the longest battery lives we've seen. It also has an IP66 rating, which means the earbuds are strongly protected against sweat and dust. You won't have to worry about the Epic Air Sport when you're working out. Plus, if you get them a little sweaty, just give them a quick rinse. You'll be able to find the perfect fit, too, so they rest comfortably on your head. The earbuds come with seven different sized gel ear tips and a set of Cloud Foam tips.
Many of the best features from the previous generations have carried over. You'll have Be Aware Audio, a JLab tech that lets you hear outside noises through your earbuds. If you need to hear the sound of nearby traffic or want to have a conversation with someone without pausing your music, this is the tech that lets you do that. You can also use EQ3 Sound that lets you get the sound just right without needing an app. You can also use the case's built-in 2600mAh battery to charge other devices besides your earbuds using the integrated charging cable.
JLab Audio will back up the Epic Air Sport with a two-year warranty. The starting price is $149 through the JLab Audio website, and when the earbuds release in July you'll be able to find them going for that price at Best Buy as well. That puts them at a starting price right around what the Apple AirPods go for.

J.D. Levite has been in the deals game since 2012. He has posted daily deals at Gizmodo, The Wirecutter, The Sweethome, and now for Thrifter. He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
