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. Depends on how I’m travelling – if on a plane, you still need a corded option to listen to the plane’s audio but for my personal devices it’s cordless all the way!

  2. Apple for sure when travelling but I would love to try something new like these Jlab Go Air Tunes.

  3. I normally would use my airpods when travelling, however these would be great to try out the Brown ones look like it is made of chocolate!
    Also, always good to have a share pair of headphones 🙂

  4. The last time I travelled was so long ago that I didn’t have my own earphones, just the airline ones. Going this summer so these would be awesome.

  5. I used to take my wired earbuds but now that my phone doesn’t have an audio jack, I would love to try these JLab Wireless Earphones!

  6. i have the old style Sony headphone with wires which get tangled usually when i’m sitting on the cramped airline seat so these wireless ones would be a great help

  7. I generally wear Galaxy buds but this review has me excited to experience the quality of the JLabs!

  8. I haven’t travelled in a long time, but the last time I flew I only had ear plugs which weren’t very effective.
    These JLAB would be wonderful.

  9. I usually travel with my Bose QC 35 noise canceling headphones because they an airplane charger but I would love to have these GoAir Truly Wireless headphones for my next trip because their super small and portable and they provide excellent sound.

  10. I take my sony earphones because that’s all i currently have but would love these cordless ones! so much easier to manage while travelling.

  11. I still use corded Samsung headphones. Living in the stone age still it seams! Wireless would be extremely handy now since the new smasung phone doesn’t have a headphones jack anymore.

  12. I usually take cheap corded headphones while traveling because I know that I’ll lose them, but I would prefer cordless headphones just for ease.

  13. I usually take a plug in pair of headphones or pay for a pair from the airlines…is that still a thing? Long time since I took a plane. What I love is the versatility of this earbuds, they are inexpensive and that the features can be controlled right from the earbuds themselves. Also, I love the cardboard container…too much packaging and unnecessary materials should all go by the wayside. Good for them for creating this product. I could certainly use one of the earbuds, I am in need right now. Good luck everyone.

  14. I have a pair of klipsh earphones but they are still corded. Would love the small Jlab earphones to travel with.

  15. I no just bring the plug in ones that came with my phone – so these would be a step up – would be great not to fuss with the cord!

  16. I used wireless earbuds for travel, and I’d like these because they are so small, for my next trip.

  17. I take noise cancelling headphones when I travel Jlab GoAir wireless headphones would be good to use for travel because they are lightweight.
