New Fit 2.0 Sport Earbuds

JLab Audio's new Fit 2.0 Sport Earbuds are here to help you #RockItOut during any athletic activity. Whatever activity you're challenging yourself with, the New Fit 2.0 is the perfect workout partner! JLab Audio's sport earbuds are designed with the athlete's needs in mind. How many times have your earbuds fallen out during a workout? How basic. Or how often have you had to adjust them during a run? Again, so basic. What about when you have to take them out of your ears to wipe the sweat off? Uhg, gross.

Fitness Model Sena Correa wearing JLab FIT 2.0 Sport Earbuds

The Fit 2.0 Sport Earbuds are one of a kind. The Memory Wire ear hook and Dual Cable System shape to your ear and provide you with maximum stability throughout your workout. The Dual Cable System, made with Kevlar, ensures optimum flexibility and strength. The two cord sizes allow you to #RockItOut with your phone in your pocket or on your arm. Not only are the Fit 2.0 earbuds comfortable, they are everything-proof. Resisting blood, sweat, and tears, you can challenge yourself to any physical activity. The Fit 2.0 Sport Earbuds are washable with an IPX4 rating, so after your sweaty workout you can rinse them off for your next adventure.

"I absolutely love the way the Fit 2.0 Sport Earbuds stay put in my ears due to the Memory Wire. The two cord sizes come in handy while I'm going for a quick work out or taking a run on the beach," said Sena Correa, one of our wonderful fitness models who took the Fit 2.0 Sport Earbuds home to test out on her daily workouts. "Overall I give this product an A+ in the quality of sound and design!"

All of these legit features aside, the sound that comes out of these earbuds is massive. They have a deep, rich bass, full, luscious mids, and crisp, vibrant highs. The FIT's titanium micro-drivers deliver a clean, crisp sound with in-line water resistant one button universal mic with phone and track control. Wow. Could you ask for more? We can't.

"I bought these for running, but wanted good sound. The sound is clear; the treble is not fake and the bass is nice, but not overkill. So far good," Melissa Tripaldi, an Amazon customer said after she bought her Fit 2.0 Sport Earbuds.

Fitness Model Sena Correa wearing JLab FIT 2.0 Sport Earbuds

We are so excited about the launch of the Fit 2.0 Sport Earbuds because of the customizable fit, splash proof and ergonomic design.

Providing you with the best quality, sound, durability, and design, these are fitness approved for all! Go ahead, give them a shot! #RockItOut while you work it out!

Correa also said after taking them out, "I also like the design of the cushion tips and how they help prevent sweat from distorting or muffling the sound, so I can easily listen to my Pandora tunes at a better quality and higher level of comfort. The best feature about this product is that I can answer calls when necessary and with the cable clip, I can attach them to whatever I'm wearing!"

Don't just take our word and Sena's word for it, grab a pair of our new Fit 2.0 Sport Earbuds now and see for yourself! Enjoy and don't forget to #RockItOut!

On the road with Nova from Scars on 45



British alt-rock ensemble Scars on 45 make yearning, melodic pop that combines the big guitar rock of Oasis with the melodic, country-influenced sound of Fleetwood Mac. Formed in Bradford, Yorkshire around 2007, Scars on 45 began as a duo after former football-mates, singer/songwriter Danny Bemrose and bassist Stuart Nichols, started writing songs together. Eventually the band expanded to include keyboardist David 'Nova' Nowakowski, vocalist Aimee Driver, and drummer Chris Durling. While the group developed a local following, it wasn't until their song "Beauty's Running Wild" was used in a 2009 episode of the CBS television drama CSI:New York that Scars on 45 caught the attention of the wider music industry. In 2011, buoyed by that success and a record deal with the Chop Shop label, they released two EPs, including Give Me Something and Heart on Fire, the latter's title cut appeared on the Grey’s Anatomy, Vol. 4 soundtrack. In 2012, Scars on 45 released its self-titled debut album featuring the single, "Heart on Fire." ~ Matt Collar, Rovi

JLab recently sat down with keyboardist and JLab Ambassador David 'Nova' Nowakowski to discuss life on the road and why he is a fan of JLab.

JLab: How long have you been playing the keyboard? 

Nova: I've been playing the keyboard since the age of 4. At age 13, I started off with piano lessons then ended up playing church organ for funerals and weddings. I didn't play in my first band until I was 16. 

 

JLab: What is your favorite thing about being on tour?

Nova: I have a few favorite things... I love touring and traveling. At a young age my family always had a passion to travel around and visit new cities. I'm so fortunate to be touring with my best friends and also playing music. America is one huge country! When touring around you discover so much about individual states, the amazing people and unbelievable food! I think if we never toured again I would go home with a smile on my face because of the experience and memories that will stay with me forever. 

 

JLab: What music do you listen to before a show?

Nova: Honestly? I don't personally. I like to relax and chill with vodka soda! I really need to focus on the show before I hit the stage, and make sure all my energy goes into that performance.  I still get nervous before I go on no matter where I'm performing, even when  doing radio interviews/performances. However we now have the new Crasher speaker which sounds great, so we might have to blast some tunes out after the shows! 

 

JLab: What are the most important features in a headphone and/or earbud?

Nova: It's a funny thought but with headphones it's having them fit first of all. I have a large head (it runs in the family) so having the headphones being comfortable is important! I also really like a good, clear sounding clarity in a headphone. The earbuds are a similar scenario and the fitting is equally important. 

 

JLab: What's your favorite JLab earbud? 

Nova: I've been using the GLAM earbuds for two years now. Not only for personal use but I also use them on stage when playing live. Again, they feel comfortable and look great with a perfect sound throughout. 

 

JLab: What is your favorite JLab headphone?

Nova: First time I experienced the OMNI headphone was recently while being on tour. The OMNI looks great and feels great! The sound is really good with a good balance of both treble and bass. The best feature for me is the Bluetooth compatibility which can be connected to two devices at anyone time. The left side of the headphone has a control system which is convenient and also runs through your apple device through Siri which is cool. Also not forgetting the use of handsfree calling with its built in mic on the headphone itself. Cool design amazing headphone worth checking out guys!  

 

JLab: If you had to pick three words to describe the OMNI, what would they be?

Nova: Comfortable. Slick. Sexy.
