JLab Puts An End To Muffled Calls With New True Wireless Work Buds

New JLab Work Buds Provide Headset Level Call Clarity In A True Wireless Package

San Diego, CA, May 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JLab's new Work Buds ($79.99) end the distraction some experience due to sub-par microphone clarity when using true wireless earbuds. The new JLab Work Buds feature a lightweight detachable noise-canceling boom mic that provides optimal voice pick-up for phone calls, video chats, and other situations where microphone clarity is important. Work Buds are an ideal solution for those who prefer the convenient design and features of true wireless earbuds but want the microphone clarity that comes from a headset with a boom mic.

Many consumers prefer true wireless earbuds for their size and convenience, but the placement of their microphones can lead to muffled audio due to adjacent activity, interference caused by wind, or obstruction from the user's hair or clothing. Bluetooth headsets with integrated boom mics can provide better audio quality, but their larger size can be a turnoff for many from using them, especially in non-office environments.

The Work Buds’ flexible noise-canceling boom mic can be connected to either earbud and positioned near the user's mouth for crystal clear calls. When no longer needed, the boom mic can be stored in the Work Buds' USB-C charging dock. Both earbuds have high-quality internal mics for when the boom mic is not warranted or left in the charging dock.

"JLab's Work Buds provide a best-of-all-worlds scenario for people who prefer true wireless earbuds but want the microphone quality that only a noise-canceling boom mic can provide. With JLab's Work Buds, people no longer have to sacrifice call quality for convenience with their earbuds," commented JLab CEO Win Cramer. 

Typical of new introductions from JLab, the Work Buds feature surprising value for their $80 price tag, especially compared to other premium brands charging $200-$300. The Work Buds feature 55+ hours of playtime, with 10+ hours in each earbud. Dual connect technology allows either earbud to be used individually with or without the boom mic. Bluetooth Multipoint technology allows easy switching between a computer, phone, or tablet without disconnecting and pairing the Work Buds each time.

The Work Buds also feature touch controls, allowing the user to turn on the Be Aware setting to let outside noise, pause and resume audio, answer calls, adjust the EQ, and other settings. Work Buds will also be the first release from JLab to use the new JLab App which will allow additional customization of the touch controls and audio settings.

The Work Buds include three different-sized pairs of gel ear tips to provide an optimal fit, ensuring the best in-ear seal in each ear. Three different-sized pairs of JLab's signature Cush Fins are also included, which can be wrapped around the outside of each earbud for enhanced fit and comfort.
