Product Information

  • Overview

    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

    BlueBuds X pack an impressive eight hours of playtime into a small design. And for convenience, it uses a standard micro-USB connector for charging and includes a battery status icon on screen for iPhone users.

    Secure fit

    Sports ear cushions hug into the top, back and lower surface areas of your ear – all essential for a secure fit during sports and fitness activities. 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.

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.

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!

    5.0 out of 5 stars

    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.

I've had multiple issues with them not working. Not holding a charge, and then Jaybirds the company hasn't been that responsive. I love the no wires, but this is the third brand of BT headphones and I may have to go back to the dreaded wires.

  • Awesome look, average sound, low bass, expensive!!! A tip for runners!

    3.0 out of 5 stars

I used to have wired Westone 3, with 3 dedi For those actually reading beyond the title, I use headphones for running and cycling. I used to have wired Westone 3, with 3 dedicated drivers and a sound out of this world. Then I washed them with my running clothes.

    For biking I need something wireless and I understand the limitations of Bluetooth technology. I used the Jabra bluetooth headphones and while not as cool looking as the JayBirds, the sound was not much worse. Mind you, they cost €20!

    While I can afford €179.95 JayBirds, I am disappointed that their sound profile is rather average and lacking on the bass. I am not looking for a replacement of +€400 Westone's. But I'd really appreciate a more bass in the Jaybirds.

    The fit and over the ear wear is fine, they are secure while biking or running (did 19km run with them no problem). They do not tire the ear even after 2-3 hrs which is nice.

    A tip for runners, if the signal is falling out while having the iPhone on one arm, try switching the arm on which you wear the iPhone. It went from dropping the signal on my right hand to 100% perfection while wearing it on my left hand. So yes, the connection stays stable.

    Would these be €50-70 I'd accept all the shortcomings, but at €179.95 they are insanely overpriced.

    Had these headphones for a couple of weeks. I've concluded I can never get used to the fit. They won't sit correctly, resulting Had these headphones for a couple of weeks. I've concluded I can never get used to the fit. They won't sit correctly, resulting in loss of bass. Decided to sell oh craigslist and get another over the ear type. Some people may get the fit to work for them, but many including me could not. Try before you buy.
