In case you missed our big announcement last week, here's a little recap...
JLab Audio revealed and launched for preorder, our Epic Air Bluetooth Earbuds, the first true wireless earbud in our line of products. We took our first generation Epic Bluetooth Wireless Earbud and its next gen Epic2, to give you our best Bluetooth connection earbud yet.
We got rid of all the wires and created a secure design to eliminate any worry of them falling out of your ears. On top of the unique design, we built our patent-pending antenna earhook which provides you with a Bluetooth connection in both earbuds. This creates a stronger, more reliable connection to your device.

With all the talk on the web right now about how Apple eliminated their headphone jack on the iPhone 7, everyone is wondering what Bluetooth headphones or earbuds to purchase (and without breaking the bank).

Luckily for our customers and ourselves, JLab Audio was not affected by the recent situation with Hanjin Shipping Co., which affected countless other companies. The shipping company announced it was filing for bankruptcy, causing many shipments to be delayed in a long overseas journey.
"Thank god we didn't have anything on those vessels," says CEO Win Cramer. "It's a hard hit for any business, but for a fast-growing business like JLab, it could have slowed momentum."
