Every year we're prepared to out do the previous, and work hard to achieve major milestones. This year, was a big one for JLab for countless reasons. While we’d love to list everything, here’s our top few that we can’t stop thinking about.
1. We entered the true wireless game with our Epic Air True Wireless Sport Earbuds.
Our Epic Air are the most innovative true wireless earbuds out there. Each earbud holds a six hour battery life, and the charging case provides 30 extra hours to the earbuds or a charge to other devices. A secure earhook, touch controls, and an IP55 sweatproof rating, they don't disappoint. They also won the Editors Choice Award from PC Mag.
2. We moved in to a new corporate office, four times larger than the previous...and threw a party.
We also expanded our team by 25% since 2016. With a larger team and office, we're ready for 2018!
3. We expanded internationally and attended IFA Berlin 2017.
By bringing our wireless connection to Europe, we're ready to spread JLab everywhere. We have an initial focus on Europe, with plans to expand to other regions in 2018. You can now shop JLab on Amazon UK!
4. We ranked as the fastest growing major headphone brand as of June 2017.
According to data from the NPD Group, JLab is the fastest growing major headphone brand in the U.S., with the largest gain in distribution in June 2017.* With the countless awards we've won this year, and landing in even more major retail stores, this data was awesome news during our already record year.
5. Last but not least, we announced ourselves as the Official Audio Sponsor of Major League Soccer.
We're so excited for this partnership and what it brings for us. You'll see us on the field level signage during games, and every major MLS event. We're also the exclusive partner of our close to home team, the LA Galaxy, where we're helping to get players pumped pregame, and you'll see our JLab DJ booth when you enter the Stub Hub Center for an exclusive experience.
On top of the partnership we were able to attend the MLS Cup in Toronto and award the players our yet to be released Bluetooth earbud.
