JBuds Frames from JLab Usher in a New Era of Audio Eyewear

JBuds Frames from JLab Usher in a New Era of Audio Eyewear

The demand for wireless audio has grown vastly in the past decade. Wireless audio is safer than holding a device to your ear and provides greater privacy. Moreover, wireless audio provides better audio production than speakers, making them the audio system of choice for video conferencing.

Even more importantly, wireless audio can help people with hearing loss use their cell phones. Roughly 36 million Americans have some amount of hearing loss. For many of these users, the better sound quality of wireless audio earbuds can be essential for cell use.

However, wireless audio devices come with a few drawbacks. Most wireless audio devices are designed to fit over or in the ear. This means that some people cannot use them because the devices are too large, too small, or improperly shaped to fit the user’s ear. Wireless audio devices are also notorious for being misplaced or lost. This leaves the user without an audio device for driving, exercising, or other activities that require the user’s hands to remain free.

JBuds Frames from JLab Usher in a New Era of Audio Eyewear

JBuds Frames from JLab Audio is intended to remedy many of the problems inherent in conventional wireless audio devices. JBuds Frames attach to the user’s eyeglasses along with the earpieces. Unlike conventional earbuds or wireless audio devices, this minimizes the risk of loss. By attaching the wireless audio devices to the eyeglasses, the audio devices are only as likely to be lost as the glasses. When you wear JBuds Frames, you’ll have two Bluetooth true wireless audio devices that operate independently and that you can attach to the temples of any pair of eyeglasses, sunglasses, or other eyewear.

By fitting to the user’s eyeglasses, JBuds Frames provides a universal fit that can accommodate any user. The lack of universal fit among traditional earbuds and wireless pieces that are designed for the ears can leave many users with no way to communicate via phone. About 15% of adults over the age of 18 have hearing trouble. This amounts to about 37.5 million Americans. For many of these adults, conventional earbuds or wireless Bluetooth earpieces will not fit into, or over, their ear.

JBuds Frames are a perfect solution to that problem. While the device can help users hear more clearly, the open-ear design also allows the wearer to be aware of their surroundings as they listen to audio content. This can be extremely helpful for those who like to listen to music or podcasts while they exercise or work but still need to be able to hear when the phone rings or a loved one calls from the other room.

JBuds Frames from JLab Usher in a New Era of Audio Eyewear

As JBuds Frames attach to the user’s own glasses, they are endlessly adaptable to the user’s style. Whatever the style of your eyeglasses is, JBuds Frames can adapt to them, allowing you to keep your desired style. This is just as important as the function of the device, as style matters to most users. While devices have been created that integrate wireless audio into eyeglasses, manufacturers usually provide a limited selection of eyeglass styles. This makes sense because the device manufacturers are usually more concerned with the technology inside the wireless earpieces than the style of the eyeglass frames. As a result, the frames can look cheap or use colors or patterns that are simple so they can match anyone’s needs.

The removability of the Bluetooth pieces also allows you to use them with whatever pair of glasses you want to wear. Whether you have multiple pairs of stylish eyeglasses or you like to switch between different sunglasses, you can use JBuds Frames at all times. When you wear them, you can enjoy over eight hours of playtime and conveniently-located buttons to accept or decline phone calls, adjust volume, and switch between JLab’s Signature and Bass Boost EQ settings.

JBuds Frames provide many benefits compared to conventional wireless Bluetooth earbuds or even eyeglasses with integrated earpieces. This new device from JLab will be previewed during the 2021 CES event. You can expect them to be available early in spring 2021 and retail for $50, which is $150-$200 below comparable releases. Check out a preview of the new JLab JBuds Frames on their website.

Combat Dry, Winter Skin With These Winter Skin Savers

As we enter into the season of cold, dry air, you may notice your skin gets drier, itchier, and looks and feels less supple. That’s because the cold will drastically affect your skin. The cold air has less moisture; the harshness of the winds will strip your skin of its moisture; and unless you have a humidifier at home, the heated air in your home will dry out your skin. All of these leads to your skin looking aged. It is a fact that your skin needs an extra level of love and hydration during the cold, winter months. Luckily, there are some wonderful skincare products out there to help and we’re highlighting them today. Let’s face it, we all want luminous skin for the holiday season and all winter long and these winter skin savers are here to help.

CLn Skin Care: Effective Dermatologist-Recommend Skincare

CLn Skin Care: Effective Dermatologist-Recommend Skincare

So many things can affect how your skin behaves: stress, the environment, diet, etc. Unfortunately, as we’re seeing yet another increase in Covid-19 cases, we have to continue taking precautions. That means suffering from Maskne, dry hands from frequent hand washing, stressed skin, and dull complexions. The pandemic has made it difficult to make in-person dermatology appointments, and while telemedicine appointments are available, trying to clearly show your skin issues via computer or phone screen is not the same as in-person. The solution? Using skin care products that are recommended by more than 6,000 doctors. CLn Skin Care is a range of effective products to help sufferers of reactive skin conditions like Eczema, Acne, and Folliculitis (Razor Bump or Burn).

CLn Skin Care: Effective Dermatologist-Recommend Skincare

The colder season brings lower temperatures and drier air, both of which affect your skin. Today, we’re highlighting three of the CLn Skin Care products – CLn Acne Cleanser, CLn BodyWash, and CLn HandWash. CLn Skin Care’s sodium hypochlorite cleansers help wash away skin triggering microbes, bacteria, and allergens without impairing the skin barrier to allow the skin to heal itself.

Let’s face it (pardon the pun), with layers that may include primer, foundation and powder, finishing spray, and a mask with filters, your skin might have trouble getting enough fresh air to breathe. The CLn Acne Cleanser is designed to penetrate pores to stop new breakouts before they begin, yet avoids the drying effects of many topical treatments.  Advanced cleansing is the first step to a healthy complexion. The CLn Acne Cleanser clears breakouts by eliminating clogged pores, killing acne-causing bacteria, and soothing skin. Thanks to this cleanser, we’ve stopped our breakouts dead in their tracks, even hormonal acne (a huge issue for us). We also noticed this acne cleanser doesn’t dry out our skin. We don’t have to follow this acne face wash with a heavy moisturizer as we did with others. Finally, an acne wash that doesn’t have side effects.

CLn BodyWash is a physician designed gentle formula for hands and body prone to infection, eczema, rash, redness, irritation, and folliculitis.  With continued use, CLn leaves skin looking smooth, clear, healthy, and refreshed. As we mentioned above, hormonal acne is a big issue for us. Add in regular stress acne and the skin on our body gets angry. We used this body wash on backne on our upper left side and our regular cleanser on the right; almost immediately we started seeing results from the CLn BodyWash. Within 3 days, that side was clear; this is a definite must for body acne sufferers.

The CLn HandWash is formulated with sodium hypochlorite and glycerin, making it tough on germs, yet gentle on skin – especially for frequent hand washing.  Designed by dermatologists, this non-prescription cleanser is tough on microbes but easy on the skin. It can be used for frequent hand washing that can cause sensitive skin to over dry and crack.

“One of the reasons I was drawn to CLn was its amazing efficacy for my patients suffering from eczema and acne,” said Dr. Sklar. “The far-reaching abilities of this patented sodium hypochlorite cleansers are astounding. I am very proud to be involved in the cultivation and success of CLn because I strongly believe in its ability to revolutionize skincare for everyone.” Jerald Sklar, MD, CLn Skin Care Board of Directors
