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.

I noticed that they are “pre-order”. When do you anticipate to start shipping?
