San Diego-based audio equipment manufacturer, JLab, has unveiled its latest offering in the true wireless earbuds market with the launch of the Epic Lab Edition. Positioned as a premium addition to their existing lineup, these earbuds mark a significant step forward for the brand, incorporating cutting-edge technology and features aimed at delivering an enhanced listening experience.

The key highlight of the Epic Lab Edition earbuds is the integration of the Knowles Preferred Listening Response Curve (PLRC), a pioneering tuning technology that aims to optimize the audio output based on extensive research and analysis of consumer preferences. 

By leveraging data from 200 recordings spanning two decades of Billboard Hot 100 tracks, Knowles identified a preference for heightened treble frequencies, particularly in the range beyond 10 kHz. JLab's implementation of this curve promises to deliver a signature sound profile that accentuates treble while maintaining overall balance and clarity.

To achieve this precise tuning, JLab employs a dual-driver configuration in the Epic Lab Edition earbuds. These include a Knowles balanced armature driver dedicated to handling high frequencies, complemented by a 10mm dynamic driver for robust bass reproduction. The result is a well-rounded sound signature that caters to a wide range of musical genres and listening preferences.

"For the Epic Lab Edition, I tasked our engineering team with creating something that brought exceptional sound quality to market and still offered an incredible value compared to similarly priced earbuds," said JLab CEO, Win Cramer.

"We’ve shown the world the amazing things that can be done in the under $100 category, and now we’re going full throttle with our most premium sound experience yet. JLab’s Epic Lab Edition elevates our portfolio of audio products with new technologies, including specialized balanced armature drivers to match the Knowles Preferred Listening Response Curve, something no other brand has right now."

JLab Epic Lab Edition earbuds boast a 10-mm dynamic driver for the lower registers and a Knowles balanced armature driver for the higher end.

In addition to its audio capabilities, the Epic Lab Edition earbuds come equipped with an array of advanced features designed to enhance the overall user experience. Bluetooth LE Audio support ensures a stable and energy-efficient wireless connection, while the inclusion of the LC3 codec promises improved audio quality, especially when streaming content from compatible devices. 

Users can also enjoy high-resolution audio playback thanks to support for codecs such as LDAC and AAC on Android and iOS platforms, respectively.

For those seeking immersive audio experiences, the Epic Lab Edition earbuds offer support for spatial audio technologies like Dolby Atmos, Tempest 3D AudioTech, and Windows Sonic. This enables users to enjoy multi-dimensional soundscapes that enhance the immersion and realism of their favorite content, whether it be music, movies, or games.

Noise cancellation capabilities further elevate the listening experience, with smart active noise cancellation that adapts to ambient sound conditions in real-time. JLab's proprietary ANC technology adjusts the level of noise cancellation dynamically, ensuring optimal performance in various environments. Moreover, the companion mobile app provides users with access to a 10-band EQ for personalized sound adjustments, along with playback controls and settings customization.

JLab Epic Lab Edition earbuds include 3 Sets of Cloud Foam Tips, 3 Sets of Silicone Gel Tips, USB-C to C Charging Cable and Bluetooth LE Audio Dongle.

On the practical side, the Epic Lab Edition earbuds offer impressive battery life, with up to 9 hours of playback on a single charge with ANC enabled, and up to 13 hours with ANC disabled. The charging case extends this further, providing over 56 hours of total playback time with ANC or 36 hours without. Wireless charging support adds convenience, allowing users to top up their earbuds effortlessly.

Constructed to withstand the rigors of daily use, the Epic Lab Edition earbuds feature a sweat- and dust-proof design certified to IP55 standards. This ensures durability and reliability, whether commuting, exercising, or simply enjoying music on the go.
