Starting with the headphones, JLab claims the JBuds Lux is its first foray into the higher-end market. As a result, the headphones come packed with a variety of features. These features include better sound quality, active noise canceling, spatial audio support, and Bluetooth multipoint and LE audio capabilities.

In regards to the sound quality, these headphones use 40mm drivers. JLabs claims that these drivers are capable of producing a 20—20 kHz frequency response with very low distortion for high-fidelity sound. These headphones will also filter out external noises for music playback and phone calls.

In addition, JLabs says owners will be able to customize their listening experience through the JLab app. This will allow you to use features like Safe Hearing Mode and the equalizer.

For under $100, these are crazy good value.
As far as inexpensive ANC headphones go, the JLab JBuds Lux ANC are one of the best of 2024. They focus on the fundamentals, and not fighting the spec wars.

One notable feature these earbuds will have is a low-latency mode made especially for watching movies. The Movie Mode reportedly enables flawless synchronization between the audio source and the earbuds for reduced lag.
