Shift Premium Bluetooth Audio
Integrating a custom implementation of the native Bluetooth SBC codec, which JayBird calls Shift, BlueBuds X headphones deliver a level of purity and sound that rivals the best in wired headphones. A great feature of Shift is that it's pair and play, so nothing special is required on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, just standard Bluetooth.
PureSound white noise filtering
JayBird's on-board filtering system, called PureSound, filters out and eliminates white noise to give you a clean audio experience. This is especially helpful for long workouts when you've turned up the volume to motivate yourself.
Playtime to up to eight hours

JayBird's X-Fit design lets you use the headphones either in the traditional under-ear wearing style for music and calls or over-ear – completely free of any cord on your neck – so it feels like you don't have any headphones on.

JayBird Bluetooth Headphones
These headphones are incredible! I bought them to replace a pair of Motorola Bluetooth headphones that I bought on Amazon. I'm a These headphones are incredible! I bought them to replace a pair of Motorola Bluetooth headphones that I bought on Amazon. I'm an extremely heavy sweater and the Motorola's stopped working after only two weeks. I've had the JayBirds for almost a year and a half and they're still going strong!
First, they almost never fall out of your ear. I do a lot of Crossfit and the only time they start to come loose is when I'm jumping rope for an extended period of time. The "waffles" really help hold them in place.
Next, they stand up to excessive sweat extremely well. I'm in the Army and was deployed to the Middle East for the last eight months, through the summer months when the average temperature was over 120 degrees. And through that heat and my sweat, these headphones still work with zero issues.
They also work okay across a gym. I can set my iPhone down next to a rack and walk around the gym pretty freely without losing quality or the connection.
The only reason that I gave them four stars and not five is because there isn't a battery indicator on them. So you may end up losing music in the middle of your workout due to the battery dying. But honestly, that's more my problem than the headphones - I could have charged them every three or four days regardless of whether or not they needed to be charged.
I would definitely recommend these to someone looking for quality Bluetooth headphones. …

Very well done
I must own 30 sets of headphones. For running i've tried everything but i HATE the cord tangle that goes with all of them. i tri I must own 30 sets of headphones. For running i've tried everything but i HATE the cord tangle that goes with all of them. i tried a few bluetooth versions but they were not stable or didn't stay in the ear or gave pretty poor sound. These guys seemed to have nailed it!
Works well. Fits well (make sure you experiment to get the tips and the wings just right for you). It makes a big difference in the amount of sound that goes in (especially during activity).
Pleasantly surprised with them. Well done Jaybird! They took an extra year to come out but overall they seem well worth it. …

Best BlueTooth Headphone....ever!
I had 2 S9s and 2 S10HDs both died due to sweat. I HATE, HATE Wired headphone because I primarily use my headphone during workout I had 2 S9s and 2 S10HDs both died due to sweat. I HATE, HATE Wired headphone because I primarily use my headphone during workout sessions. This BlueBuds X is by far has the best sound, comfort & battery life. You have to try different ear piece to find what fits for you (takes me a day or two). The sound quality (deep base) rivals any wired headset and there is no 'wearing' fatigue like with other headphones. Most other headphones, I have to max out the volume, you won't have to with this one unless you want to go deaf. As an Electronic Engineer, I am quite impressed with how small the battery is for the 8 hrs of play time. The weight to battery life ratio is quite amazing.
I have iPhone 4S with iOS 6.0.1 and I have to DISABLE WIFI so that the music doesn't cutout for a second every so often. This is iOS 6 WiFi, BlueTooth problem and not the headphone's (have similar problem with Wireless Beats also). Google iOS 6 Bluetooth (or Wifi) problems for yourself and see. Come on! Apple you have got to fix this problem or this can turn to the 'iMap' fiasco I can see it now 'iPhone, iPad are great if you don't want to use BlueTooth features). Wireless Beats & BlueBuds work great on Android phones with out any problem so I am certain it's not the headphones. …

Not Sweat Proof
I bought a pair in June. I use them for running. First pair died in about 3 weeks. JayBird replaced them. Second pair died in I bought a pair in June. I use them for running. First pair died in about 3 weeks. JayBird replaced them. Second pair died in a month. JayBird replaced them. They made me pay the shipping!! Third pair died in about a month. Waiting for my fourth pair to ship. JayBird is fabulous at sending replacements. However, they often expect you to pay for shipping. $170 for a product that doesn't last more than a month is terrible. If you're a couch potato, you'll love these. When they work they're great! If you're active, you'll spend more time waiting to get your replacements than wearing and using them. It takes 1 to 2 weeks to get them replaced. DO NOT buy these if you're looking for something "sweat proof". Other reviews have negative remarks about the battery. Maybe. Not sure. I figure it's because I sweat on them. …

Reliable, light weight, it has lasted over 18 months of use so far.
I bought these earphones since its launch on Jan 2013. They are light and fit on my ears well. Sometimes when I sweat too much the I bought these earphones since its launch on Jan 2013. They are light and fit on my ears well. Sometimes when I sweat too much they fall off one side at a time but then I just dry each ear piece and put them back on. Battery is still lasting over 5h after 18 months of intense use. I work out every day and probably wear this guy minimum 5 days a week. I use them to run and to work out. People asked me where I got them and they commented they like the small profile and design. Although I had a problem two months ago. The earphones were not turning on anymore. Then I contacted the manufacturer and they just offer me to replace my earphones for free as soon as I ship them with the original charging cable. Well I finally found the original charging cable and then I gave a try charging the earphones with the original charging cable. It came back to life. Hahahah! Before I was used to charge them with generic cables. Maybe it stopped working because of that. Just a thought, not sure if that’s the reason why my earphones came back to life. x) I recommend this product. It works great for me. …
