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!

    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.

    Amazing battery life (longer than Powerbeats2)!! I've never owned a nice pair (over $100) of wired headphones but decided if I was Amazing battery life (longer than Powerbeats2)!! I've never owned a nice pair (over $100) of wired headphones but decided if I was going Bluetooth that I would pay the extra price and man was it worth it! These headphones have the best sound Ive ever experienced in any headphone. Incredible bass. The bluetooth range is crazy good, I can walk around my house and there is no cutting out.
    I do recommend using Comply tips with these and not the tips provided. The comply tips will make these the best headphones youve ever owned. Not more problems with fit or buds slipping out!! (You can buy those tips from Jaybird's site)

    Buy these! You wont regret it

The sound quality is decent at this price level. The worst is the fit on ears. It is simply uncomfortable and unsecured during a run or moderately intense workout and above. JayBird must do better on fit and comfort for me to use this again. Going back to my wire Shure earphones.

I used them at least 5 times a week since I purchased them and they were great....until I took them off charge for a work out and they would not turn on. You know how expensive these bluetooth headphones are and when you spend the money you expect to get more than two months out of them. Very disappointed about this and will not be purchasing this brand again due to this issue.
