When it comes to integration, almost all wireless earbuds fail miserably. This is mostly due to the predominant black and white color options, with a few brightly colored variants introduced along the way. Even if the buds are small, they are still highly visible due to their color. JLab is looking to fix this and the sound company has teamed up with nail care brand ORLY to develop a solution. With Go Air Tones, the duo chose a palette of seven Pantone colors that “flat people across a range of skin tones.”
JLab says it worked with ORLY to select the final hues from an original set of more than 60 options. Given the beauty brand’s experimentation with creating nude nail polishes, the seven colors “include a variety of skin tones with a mix of warm, neutral, and cool tones. And while the colors reflect actual skin tones, most users will find the colors ‘attractive’ without an exact match, according to For JLab If you are having trouble deciding which option is the best, JLab offers an augmented reality friendly room for a virtual experience that may help you decide.
The Go Air Tones are the same in-ear headphones as the $20 Go Air Pop that JLab debuted in August. This means you’ll get onboard touch controls, the ability to use any of the buds on their own, a host of EQ presets and IPX4 moisture protection. There is also a closed case with a built-in USB cable for charging. JLab says you can expect up to eight hours on the same earbuds with three additional charges out of the included case. The only difference between Pop and Tones is the color options available for each.
Go Air ringtones are available to pre-order today for $20. Shipping is scheduled to begin in mid-January.
