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.
