JLab JBuds Air Sport vs Jays a-Jays Five (2013)

Analysis:

The JLab JBuds Air Sport hasn't managed to earn a top spot in any roundups from sources that conduct trustworthy hands-on testing. Nevertheless, reviewers from sites, such as Headphone Review, SoundGuys, PCmag, and Wirecutter (NYTimes) all gave it a spot on their list.

As for the Jays a-Jays Five (2013), it wasn't able to earn a top spot in any roundups from trusted sources that conduct their own hands-on testing. Nevertheless, it managed to impress reviewers at Head-fi, TrustedReviews, What Hi-Fi?, and Gear Patrol enough to make it onto their respective shortlists.

We couldn't find any sources that tested both of these Earphones, so we only analyzed how they performed in reviews from different sites.

We first examined which sources rated each of these best and found that the JLab JBuds Air Sport got its highest, 8.9, rating from Technically Well, while the Jays a-Jays Five (2013) earned its best, 7, score from Digitaltrends.

Lastly, we averaged out all of their review ratings and observed that the JLab JBuds Air Sport, with its 7.8 average, performed considerably better than most Earphones - the mean score for the product category being 7.3 out of 10 - while the Jays a-Jays Five (2013) managed an average of 6.5.

There's one caveat here - it might not be entirely justifiable to do a direct JLab JBuds Air Sport vs. Jays a-Jays Five (2013) review average comparison since they aren't priced the same and more expensive products tend to get higher review scores from some sources.
