We’re taking a look at JLab’s Neon earbuds today. These are over-ear headphones that have two unique features: they are wireless and Neon. They’re designed for comfort and lightweight, with an adjustable headband and ultra-soft earpads for hours of listening without fatigue.
The sound quality is surprisingly good – we were surprised by how crisp the high end was on these! And, if you want to know who’s calling or texting while you’re listening to music, there is a built-in microphone so you can take calls hands-free (or even use Siri!)
What do you think? Are these the perfect pair of headphones for your needs? See Jlab Neon Earbuds Review below to find out more!

Jlab Neon Earbuds have evident sound quality. The bass has a good depth without being overpowering, and the highs are crisp and clear. The earbuds do a great job of blocking out other ambient noise, so if you’re looking for a Bluetooth pair of earbuds to use while you commute, you’ll be pleased with these.
Sounds great but also not very bassy. If you’re used to the thumping bass of your earbuds, it’s important to mention that these are more of a neutral sound than bassy.
The highs are very crisp but won’t make your ears bleed if you listen to something with high treble. The overall sound is well balanced and clean sounding.
Its excellent audio performance and stylish design will make you happy at a very reasonable price.
The Neon Headphones come with 40mm neodymium speakers and an exceptional C3(TM), Sound quality (Crystal Clear Clarity).
The other features include CVC (Crystal Clear Clarity) 6.0 noise cancellation system, fast response, high output power to ensure transparent sound quality.
They are also sweatproof, lightweight, long-lasting, and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

The Jlab Neon Earbuds are a reliable and affordable option for earbuds for working out or running.
The battery life is good, and they offer an exciting and secure way to store the cable by clipping it on your shirt and go.
They have a great sound. If you’re an earbud lover, you’ll be satisfied with this bit of Bluetooth-enabled device.
The earbuds themselves are waterproof, and there’s a rubber tip to keep them from slipping out of your ears.
The range and connectivity of these earbuds are okay, with some occasional interruption in Bluetooth connection during workouts. Overall, these earbuds are a good buy.
Music lovers will always appreciate a long battery life. The Bluetooth version of the earbuds is rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries, just like most wireless gadgets. The Neon Bluetooth headphones allow you to immerse yourself in the fantastic, crystal clear sound for as long as 13 hours.
This means that you can listen to your favorite playlist all day, with no need to recharge.
The Lithium-Ion batteries are stored inside the headband, so there is no need to carry them around while wearing them.
Once the Lithium-Ion batteries are recharged, they are ready to go for up to 6 hours of continuous playback.
The Jlab Neon Earbuds were designed to make the wearer more visible at night. One user said they loved the noticeable neon colors and added a nice touch to his bike’s nighttime safety. Another user felt the earbuds were not worth the $19.99 price tag.
Jlab’s Neon Earbuds are waterproof, so they can even be used for swimming. However, the bass could not cut through the water for this user. This reviewer felt that the price was a bit much for what he received.
Because the Jlab Neon Earbuds are water-resistant, they do not need to be changed as often as the other earbuds or wireless on-ear headphones. However, this comes at a cost as well, as it can take hours for them to recharge after charging is complete.
To make it last longer, a user suggested ensuring the Bluetooth-enabled device was in a cool place and not putting it in a bag when not being used.
Overall, the Neon Earbuds seem to be pretty popular, and we’ve seen a few good reviews.
