Jlab Epic 2 Review
When it comes to the design of running headphones and work out headphones simply, is that they need to stay in place while you run.
The Jlab epic 2 do come with memory wires ear hooks that ensure that they fit tight and snug to any ear shape and size.
After you unpack you get the feel and see that these IEMS that are built generally out of durable plastic and they only weigh at 15 grams, so this makes them very lightweight and you will barely feel them on while running.
They do come with 8 different gel ear tips which you can try out and if you are lucky enough to get the perfect fit, it can offer you considerable noise isolation.
You can still hear part of your physical surroundings majorly for safety reasons when jogging.
What We Like
These headphones are built for sports activities where you require flexibility when jogging or exercising in the gym.
They are not completely wireless but have a wire cord that is designed to be worn behind the head and coupled with memory wire ears that can conform to the shape of your ears and can easily adjustable once and you are good to go.
The other thing that we got to love about these headphones is that apart from offering you the convenience of listening to your favourite soundtrack while exercising is that they are waterproof and sweat proof with an IPX5 rating.
This means that they can handle all that sweat and be cleaned after for hygienic purposes.
The other great feature that you need to look forward to with Jlab epic 2 headphones is that the battery playtime can last up to 12 hours.
This is quite impressive as you can use these headphones for a long flight or for workouts throughout the week without the need to constantly charge.
The other beauty is that the battery just requires 4 hours to charge fully.
You will definitely no go wrong with the stable Bluetooth 4.0 that offers good sound connection when the device in range and an intuitive in-line microphone and remote control.
We found that the sound quality of the Jlab epic 2 to be surprisingly impressive considering that these are in the category of Bluetooth headphones.
There is that bass amplification and moderately sound to the mids and highs with a clear crisp and accurate sound output.
You get to hear the audio separations and a deep bass that is not very overpowering.
To get the most out of your audio sound quality these Bluetooth 4.0 headphones come equipped with Aptx which is a feature that ensures that you get most out of the audio quality.
This feature is also coupled together with the Beacon Signal technology that greatly reduces the interferences that come from the surroundings and ensures that you get to enjoy that crisp and clear sound quality.
When it comes to the overall sound quality, these give you that precise audio output with audible bass and superior quality sound compared to most of the Bluetooth headphones in the same price range.
Considering that these come in the collective wireless Bluetooth headphone category where that most sort after the feature is convenience and flexibility provided, the jlab epic 2 do well in our opinion when it comes to sound quality.
What We Don’t Like
When it comes to the design aspect of the mic we tend to see a fault here, because it functions well when held close to the mouth but you remember that these are also designed to be worn on the back of the head and so the voice is not very clear when you use them this way.
So the option of hand free calls is available, but not with a few challenges.
Maybe there is a tradeoff here of not having the disturbance of hanging wires when running and being able to talk freely on calls when exercising.
The other point to note here is that even if these are waterproof, Bluetooth headphones don’t function well under water and it is not advisable to go swimming with these as they might spoil.
The jlab company does offer a 1-year warranty for these and we do believe that if you take good care of them well they will last a while.
Even thou some reviews of the Jlab epic 2 headphones tend to say that these don’t score well when it comes to the durability aspect.
We generally have found that this tends to be the phenomena with most Bluetooth headphones anyway.
Yeah, if you are one to abuse your headphones, then these will not last you long. But the plus is that you do get a free case to store them in when they are not in use and this can ensure that they will serve you a while.
One of the other downsides of having an iPhone device compared to Android devices is that you get to miss out on the juiciness and the beauty of some applications available.
This impact the ability to enjoy the benefits of the Aptx as it is not compatible with the Apple devices.
You will still be able to listen to music through these headphones but just not as detailed as it can be.
All in all, the Jlab Epic 2 are great Bluetooth sports headphones to consider because you not only get that freedom during workouts of no dangling wires but you also get to listen to the quality sound that motivates and gets you through those intense workouts.
The other thing to consider is that the battery performance is also impressive as you get to enjoy 12 hours of play time, no lagging of the songs and waterproof capabilities.
They are very lightweight and you will barely feel them, all you have to do is take good care of them so that they can last.
