Now, this brings me on a close to the most important thing, how do Sesh/JLab Jbuds earbuds sound (Skullcandy Sesh vs Jlab Jbuds Air)?

The Skullcandy Sesh is definitely tuned towards bass offering a very good loud bass, you can crank the volume up to 100 percent on your phone as well as on the earbuds, and it’s not distorting. I think they have limited the volume on Skullcandy a little bit because they don’t want it to start distorting hence the volume it provides is not super-duper loud but just the right amount for your ear to handle.

The Jlab Jbuds sound really punchy also coming with really good bass but the mids and treble stand out more than anything else. The clarity on the Jlab Jbuds is what makes it special. The music doesn’t feel too loud for the ear, you still feel like you have space so you can even listen to loud sounds like hip-hop or metal just as comfortably as any of the me-low sounds.

If you are after super loud almost ear-bud damaging sound then you may be a little disappointed with the Skullcandy Sesh, as they focus more on the bass than the highs.

If you are looking for a bit of a base and decent mid-level sound like something on the mellow then the Sesh is the one for you.

On the other hand if you are looking to hear awesome mid and high-level frequencies like the pretty loud metallic kind of music then I think Jlab Jbuds fit in better.

In conclusion

To finally conclude, the one you need to choose really depends on what exactly you are looking out for.

Both these Earbuds have some amazing features but as always there are a few minor drawbacks as well.

If you are leaning towards the battery life and you want your earbuds to last longer because you are going on a long drive or maybe you wanna listen to music all night or binge-watch your favorite show and don’t really want to keep charging your earbuds over and over again, then Jlab Jbuds have the upper hand here as they come with almost a days worth of charge as a backup whereas the Skullcandy Sesh comes with just about 9-10hours of battery life which I personally feel is a bit of a setback and is very very little in terms of battery life.

On the other hand, if you are looking for better comfort then I would suggest the Skullcandy Sesh would be a better choice as they fit in perfectly into the ears and are super comfortable. Jlab is also pretty comfortable but I personally didn’t like the push mechanism on the earbuds.

In terms of sound both the earbuds are equally great and provide very good bass and good clarity and quality of sound.

They can also be paired with literally any device be it your iPhone, Android phone, Mac system , Windows system, or tablet using Bluetooth. Here is a guide on how to pair Wireless headphone with Bluetooth

Overall, I think any of these two is a really great deal for what you are paying.

If you ask me personally I would go for the Skullcandy Sesh, because for me comfort takes an upper hand when compared to other parameters like battery life.
