Bose SoundSport Wireless (2016) vs JLab Jbuds Air Executive

Analysis:

The Bose SoundSport Wireless (2016) is a great Earphone for its $129 asking price.

The JLab Jbuds Air Executive, however, while a reasonable product for $57, doesn't stack up against its competitors quite as well. If you're considering Earphones in the $35 range, you might want to check out some better options.

The Bose SoundSport Wireless (2016) was loved by reviewers at SoundGuys, a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "Best running headphones" roundup where it was named its "Best All-Around", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

Moving on to the JLab Jbuds Air Executive: it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like Techradar, Rtings, SoundGuys, Android Authority, PCmag, and Wirecutter (NYTimes), enough for them to include them on those lists.

When we thoroughly analyzed their review scores, we learned that all of the sources that tested both Earphones, including PCmag and Rtings, preferred the Bose SoundSport Wireless (2016) over the JLab Jbuds Air Executive.

We also took a look at which sources they managed to impress the most. The Bose SoundSport Wireless (2016) was liked best by What Hi-Fi?, which gave it a score of 10, while the JLab Jbuds Air Executive got its highest, 8, score from Techradar.

Lastly, we averaged out all of their review ratings and observed that the Bose SoundSport Wireless (2016), with its 8.1 average, performed considerably better than most Earphones - the mean score for the product category being 7.3 out of 10 - while the JLab Jbuds Air Executive managed an average of 7.0.

There's one caveat here - it might not be entirely justifiable to do a direct Bose SoundSport Wireless (2016) vs. JLab Jbuds Air Executive review average comparison since they aren't priced the same and more expensive products tend to get higher review scores from some sources.
