JLab Go Air review: These $29 wireless earbuds are surprisingly decent

Sponsored Links

For better or worse, we assign quality to things based on how much they cost. If the best true wireless earbuds you can buy are $230, surely an alternative priced under $30 isn’t worth your time, right? Wrong. While it may have been true in the past that cheap true wireless earbuds weren’t as reliable as their pricier competitors, that’s not the case in 2020. JLab Audio’s Go Air ($29) are serviceable regardless of price — so much so that they might change your mind on cheap audio accessories.

  • Only $29
  • Compact and comfy
  • Reliable touch controls
  • USB cable is attached to case
  • Subpar sound quality
  • Battery life is just okay
  • Audio presets but no customization


JLab’s Go Air is impressively cheap at $29, but you’ll have to sacrifice audio quality to a big chunk of change. The company included a lot of handy features we typically see on pricier models — like easy-to-use touch controls and spoken battery levels. If you’re mostly using earbuds for podcasts or audiobooks, these will serve you well. But if you need something that sounds good, you’ll want to invest a little more.
