JLab Upgrades Award-Winning Earbuds to Feature Waterproof Rating, Better Connectivity and Longer Battery Life
SAN DIEGO – JLab Audio announced the release of the next generation of their most award-winning product ever: Epic2 Bluetooth Wireless Sport Earbuds. The waterproof Bluetooth earbuds offer a best-in-class battery life of 12 hours – four hours more than the closest competitor – and a waterproof, sweat-proof design with Beacon™ Signal Technology ideal for exercise, running and on-the-go audio. The Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds are available in Jet Black, Blue/Graphite, Teal/Graphite at www.jlabaudio.com on May 1, 2016.
"Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds are the best product we’ve ever launched – waterproof, sport-proof and have immersive, high quality sound," said Win Cramer, President, JLab Audio. "We took an already award-winning product and improved it based on feedback we received from customers. We are proud to offer upgraded durability and connectivity."
With 12 hours of mind-blowing sound between charges, JLab Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds power past the competition, with the closest competitor offering only eight hours. The earbuds have JLab’s proprietary C3™ (Crystal Clear Clarity) technology, delivering a clean, crisp sound with vibrant highs, mids and a pumping bass through high-performance eight-millimeter drivers, which are 50 percent larger than the nearest competitor, producing an over-ear headphone-like experience.
To ensure a waterproof IPX5 design, the mic and controls housing were totally redesigned with an ultra-sonic sealed battery compartment and plasma-coated PCB boards. Additionally, Beacon™ Signal Technology built with a ceramic Bluetooth antenna, which provides improved Bluetooth connectivity and reduces environmental detuning.
To deliver the perfect sport fit for any fitness fanatic or avid runner, the Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds are equipped with JLab’s patent-pending Memory Wire™ over-ear hooks, cable mini-clips and eight gel tip sizes that all combine to give the perfect fit. In addition to the single and double flange gel tips, JLab now offers a shallow tip for smaller ears along with the first-ever custom designed triple flange to seal in the sound and tune out distractions.

Fine-tuning the Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds goes all the way down to a tiny little antenna in the mic housing. With Beacon Signal Technology, we are able to provide skip-free tunes, even in the most demanding situation.
The Epic2's Beacon Signal Technology utilizes a ceramic Bluetooth antenna, which provides improved wireless connectivity and reduces environmental detuning. Bluetooth is a wireless technology that communicates from one device to another (more below). And thanks to Beacon Signal Technology and its ceramic mic, you'll enjoy a better earbud-to-device signal and uninterrupted tunes.
According to their website:
What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth is a global wireless communication standard that connects devices together over a certain distance. Think headset and phone, speaker and PC, basketball to smartphone and more. It is built into billions of products on the market today and connects the Internet of Things (IoT). If you haven’t heard of the IoT, go here.
How does Bluetooth work?
A Bluetooth device uses radio waves instead of wires or cables to connect to a phone or computer. A Bluetooth product, like a headset or watch, contains a tiny computer chip with a Bluetooth radio and software that makes it easy to connect. When two Bluetooth devices want to talk to each other, they need to pair. Communication between Bluetooth devices happens over short-range, ad hoc networks known as piconets. A piconet is a network of devices connected using Bluetooth technology. The network ranges from two to eight connected devices. When a network is established, one device takes the role of the master while all the other devices act as slaves. Piconets are established dynamically and automatically as Bluetooth devices enter and leave radio proximity. If you want a more technical explanation, you can read the core specification or visit the Wikipedia page for a deeper technical dive.

We hadn't even had a chance to announce newcomers Betsi Flint and Kelley Larsen to #TeamJLab, when they went ahead and won the USA NORCECA Beach Volleyball Playoffs yesterday. Betsi and Kelley won (after coming in the #4 seed) the Manhattan Beach event, which qualified the team to compete for Team USA in three international NORCECA events in the coming months.
It wasn't your typical Southern California beach day either. The winds were estimated at 30 mph. Here's some footage from Betsi's phone from the winning match - and you'll see their shirts and the ball moving oddly.
Congrats Betis and Kelley! Share your congrats below.
