Most people can’t travel without headphones, but which style of headphone should you bring? Like many people, I love earbuds like the many offered by Jlab (also called in-ears, earphones, and Truly Wireless headphones). I recently learned that one set of earbuds is not enough when I’m travelling. Read as I explore how travel and headphones go hand-in-hand, then enter for a chance to win one of six pairs of Jlab Go AirTones to take with you everywhere you go.

Advantages of Jlab Go Air earbuds for travellers

I’m going to come right out and say it: everyone should have a set of Jlab Go Air earbuds while travelling. Here are a few reasons. First, they are very small, the case is small, and the earbuds are small. They take up very little room in a jacket pocket, a purse, a knapsack, etc. Secondly, these offer excellent value: great sounds at a great price. We sent these for two reviewers for an honest explanation of their features and functionality (one in English, one in French). Both reviewers were impressed with the audio performance of these earbuds and with their stylish design and colour options. These may be the best value available in headphones this year.

Which brings me to the third reason why everyone should get a set of these earbuds. Most of us prefer headphones for listening to videos or music. To not have any while travelling would be awful. Given how inexpensive these are, how small they are, and how functional they are, you can’t go wrong to bring them with you, either as a backup or as your primary audio technology.

What kind of headphones do you need when travelling

You might think that this is a simple straight-forward question but it’s not. I don’t go anywhere without my Truly Wireless earbuds. I find them very convenient due to their small size and instant connectivity via Bluetooth. Unfortunately, I’ve had some bad luck with them too. For example, one fell out of my ear just as I was getting off a train; it fell down onto the tracks—in sight yet lost forever! A second pair, were stolen from my vehicle. I shed a tear or two, I have no shame in admitting.

At least I wasn’t travelling at either of those times. If it had happened while travelling I’d be looking for my nearest Best Buy store to buy a replacement! My recommendation for everyone, especially those travelling to a country without a Best Buy, is to bring at least two sets. If you are travelling by plane, make sure one of those sets has a cable to connect to the onboard entertainment. A few months ago I flew to Montreal and only brought in-ears. What a mistake! I made a second mistake by purchasing the $5 headset offered by the airline … only one side worked and the sound was so bad I had to use close captioning to understand the dialogue.

So enter this contest and you might win one a set of these amazing Jlab earbuds to wear daily and to have for your next trip.

  1. I usually take a cheap pair of wired ear buds so if they get damaged or lost I wouldn’t be too upset.
    I’d like a pair of the JLAB earphones for use on the trains in Europe while watching my iPad.

  2. On long flights, I need a second pair to use while my main earbuds is getting recharged in their carrying case. JLab Go Air would be perfect.

  3. I have a cheap pair of in ear corded headphones. I would love to have a set of Jlab GoAir Truly Wireless headphones so I could finally get rid of the wire!

  4. Currently I take my AirPods but only one is working right now so I’m in the market for a new set – these look awesome!

  5. I use the previous generation of wireless earbuds that are connected to each other via wire. Having truly wireless earbuds would be much more freeing

  6. I have set of Maxell that I can use on the plane when I travel, but a set of wireless earbuds would be a great upgrade.

  7. I have some old ear buds I’ve had for years. They’re kind of inconvenient as the wires get caught up in everything!
    Having a new pair of Jlab GoAir Truly Wireless headphones would be fabulous

  8. I have none for travelling, and so the facts that they are very small, the case is small, and the earbuds are small, I would enjoy having a pair of Jlab GoAir Truly Wireless headphones

  9. Have not taken any wireless earphones on a trip yet hence why I am looking for recommendations on which ones are good before I go buy a set for some upcoming trips.

  10. I usually take a really cheap airplane set with me in case I lose my good ones plus the ones I have seem to die after a couple of hours. The JLab GoAir would really great to take since they last long, small and cable is built in

  11. I have a really janky pair of old wired earphones (the ones with the foam covers. A new pair of wireless would be a huge upgrade!

  12. I usually take my old wired pair and I constantly catch things on the wire. It would be great to win so I don’t have to worry about yanking them out of my ear by pulling a cord.

  13. I use an old wired samsung headset from a galaxy S5 or a behind-the-neck Lenovo stereo bluetooth headset cuz I have larger ears and most of these earbuds simply don’t fit properly and/or fall out.

    I would love a set of Jlab GoAir Truly Wireless headphones cuz they’re free and might actually fit

  14. I always take my Bose Soundsport headphones with me, but I’ve been using them for a long time and I can’t watch a full movie on a single charge anymore. I would love a new pair of Jlab GoAir Truly Wireless headphones both for the long lasting battery and the smaller size.
