Pros

  • Good battery life
  • Pleasing sound
  • Lots of features

Cons

  • Poorly implemented touch controls
  • Big case
  • Strange design

The Epic Air ANC in-ear headphones sport an impressive battery life of up to 12+ hours per charge. Advanced features include active noise-cancelling, transparency (Be Aware) mode, wear detect sensors, and a superior app that lets you customize EQ and touch controls settings, among other things. Android users will miss APTX audio codecs, but AAC codecs are included. JLab Audio's C3 ambient noise reduction didn't convince us. At $99, these ANC TWS headphones are a great deal.
