Skullcandy’s Jib True Wireless In-Ear Headphones are a great find for anyone looking for an affordable pair of True Wireless Earbuds. They’re Skullcandy’s lowest-cost entry into the True Wireless market, but even so, they are actually a decent pair of earbuds. With a bass-heavy but well-balanced sound profile, as long as you’re not expecting flagship-level sound, they’re enough to satisfy your need for music in a truly wireless form.
The Jib True Earbuds have a simple, straightforward design that’s just a short bud, featuring the Skullcandy logo. They’re completely wireless of course, and come with a charging case, three ear tips, and a charging cable. They’re available in True Black, and ‘92 Blue - which as the name suggests looks totally 90s, with the blue earbuds, red tips, and a yellow accent colour on the charging case.
Apart from bass-heavy well-balanced sound, what else can you expect? Well, unfortunately, there’s no active noise cancellation. However, thanks to the Noise-Isolating fit, you will get some passive noise cancellation which should be good enough in most scenarios - especially with the affordable price point in mind. If you’re someone who tends to take calls with earbuds in, you’ll appreciate the Dual Microphones that provide clean, clear calls. This makes the Jib True earbuds a great option for office workers who need an audio device that has a great built-in mic to take work calls on.
Between the two earbuds and the charging case, you’ll get about 22 hours of battery life. They’re also IPX4 sweat and water-resistant, meaning they can handle sweat and a bit of rain, but likely won’t survive the swimming pool.
As for controls and connectivity, Skullcandy has made it easy. Jib True earbuds will automatically enter pairing mode the first time they power on. After that, they’ll quickly auto-pair with the last device that was used. The Jib True earbuds simple controls let you adjust volume, skip tracks, take calls, and activate a voice assistant without even touching your phone.
Just a bit of an extra bonus that comes with these earbuds is Skullcandy’s Fearless Use Promise. If you lose or break an earbud or case, Skullcandy will replace it for you at a discount. This policy covers every pair of Skullcandy True Wireless Earbuds, making them perhaps the safest brand of True Wireless Earbuds to own if you have a habit of losing everything!
