These Fruity Pebbles earbuds are a cereal junkie’s dream come true

You know what we don’t get enough of these days? Headphone companies doing collaborations with sugary breakfast cereal brands. Thankfully that conspicuous absence will soon be filled by JLab and Post, with two special edition sets of Fruity Pebbles-inspired products: The $35 Go Air Pop, and the $30 JBuddies Studio.

These Flintstones-themed devices will be available directly from the JLab website starting on March 7, which is National Cereal Day — but you knew that already, didn’t you? JLab provided no rationale for why it chose to engage with Post Consumer Brands on this partnership, but it’s a good bet that the company has been keeping close tabs on Skullcandy — its closest competitor — and its recent collaborations with Doritos on earbuds and gaming headsets.

Other than the Fruity Pebbles-inspired colors and branding (and a $10 premium on their price that presumably reflects their limited edition nature), these JLab wireless earbuds and wired headphones are identical to the normal JLab models. The Go Air Pop are one of the best values in a set of basic wireless earbuds. For the price, they sound great and have surprisingly good battery life. We also really like the case’s integrated USB charging cable — it’s everything you need in one spot.

The JLab JBuddies Studio are also a great budget choice for kids, with a small frame for small heads, volume-limiting circuitry to protect their hearing, and a lifetime warranty so you needn’t worry that you’ll be buying a new set in six months’ time.

Good ol’ Fred Flintstone may never have enjoyed his breakfast with a set of wireless earbuds — in fact, did he ever get to enjoy breakfast even once? — but if you jump on these Fruity Pebbles products before they’re gone, you’ll get to Yabba-Dabba-Do all the way until lunchtime.

Skullcandy’s new earbuds mimic the AirPods Pro for just $100
Skullcandy Rail in charging case.

Skullcandy's latest wireless earbuds are packed with features, and in typical Skullcandy fashion, they're priced much lower than the competition. The new Skullcandy Rail ($80) and Rail ANC ($100) look very similar to Apple's AirPods Pro 2, and in the case of the Rail ANC, they possess many of the same features. Both models are available on starting June 13.

Each Rail model uses the same shape and silicone eartips to seal your ear canal, with touch controls on both earbuds, however, the Rail ANC use transparent plastic for the inside half of the earbud, and they have an extra set of microphones.  Here's what you can expect from each Rail version.

How we test headphones and earbuds

Our evaluation of headphone and earbuds begins the moment the product lands on our desk. We take note of the product’s packaging and presentation before diving into the unboxing.
Out of the box

Nicely packaged products can have an effect on your overall experience. But we're a lot less concerned with beauty and design than we are with a box's impact on the planet. Even a $1,000 set of headphones can be packaged responsibly -- with fully recyclable materials -- without compromising the protection offered. In 2023, most companies do a good job of this, but we'll definitely single out the ones that are still relying on heaps of plastic and foam.

Master & Dynamic’s headphone stand is expensive, but undeniably unique
Master & Dynamic MC300 with MW75 headphones and MW08 Sport earbuds.

We've all seen products that fall into the "for the person who has it all" category. They're usually far more expensive than other choices, yet they still manage to become objects of desire through sheer design and quality of materials.

This is the only way you can even begin to justify the $119 that Master & Dynamic (M&D) asks for its MC300 headphone stand.
