    Excellent in-ear headphones with memory foam eartips

    • Written by from Sunderland

    I purchased this in-ear headphone as a Christmas treat. I have got to say its worth every single penny. At first I find it hard to adjust the eartips but after awhile I got the hang of it. I changed the eartips to memory foam ones which I bought from eBay called MoBeast. The memory foam eartips are extremely comfortable compared to silicon eartips.

    Almost perfect, but replace the tips

    • Written by from Knapwell

    These aren't cheap, but they are very good indeed. Extremely easy to use, high quality audio, good battery life, and being able to do away with the cable to the 'phone is liberating.

    Only 4 stars for two reasons:

    - The "patented secure fit, ultra-comfortable and secure" tips are awful - uncomfortable and won't stay in place. Easily fixed by replacing them with some Comply memory foam tips.

    - There's no way to reverse left and right when wearing them over-ear

    But overall, still excellent.

    Excellent Headphones

    • Written by from Chorley

    Just purchased a pair of these a couple of weeks ago and they are just great. They fit like a dream (you may need to change the ear tips around to get the correct fit) They stay put in my ears and block out a fair amount of outside sound if you get the right fit. Aside from they they just sound great.

    Expensive ..... Yes, but well worth it.

    Excellent

    I've had these beauties a year now and they are still going strong. They work perfectly with my iPhone 5 and my ipad air . Superb quality and sound . I use them when jogging and they don't budge. I don't work for jaybird, but these are the only Bluetooth headsets on the market. forget the rest!

    Great for Tangle free Running/exercise

    • Written by from Wimbledon

    I bought these to run the London Marathon, Overall they are perfect for cord free running. Once adjusted correctly (allow a good 20mins) the over ear fit is great , very light, no slippage in over 4 hrs running and did not make ears sore. I was able to change between music and phone very simply and despite a large crowd noise the microphone easily picked up my voice for phone calls. The blue tooth connection was instant and does not miss a beat.

    I have also used for HIIT including burpees and they stayed firmly in place.

    Now for the downside- The sound quality is average at best - this does not bother me but my be an issue if you expect great sound quality.
    The Price- £149 for a pair of headphones is ridiculous and i worry about ruining them especially as i use them for exercise.
    Volume control- when making volume adjustments the music stops and is replaced with a very irritating beeping sound.

    I would recommend if you have cash to burn and cords annoy you during exercising, The tech does work

    Potentially brilliant - if only they would fit properly

    • Written by from Wanstead

    I researched bluetooth earbuds extensively and the Bluebuds X seemed to come out on top. After some fiddling with different sized buds, I was very pleased with the sound quality - surprisingly balanced with decent bass; a vast improvement over the standard iPhone offering. The trouble is that even the right size of bud doesn't keep them in place securely for long; the moment you move they do too and then you instantly lose the bass. I was forever pushing them around my ears to get the seal that is essential to getting any bass - and I'm not looking for heavy bass; just a balanced sound. In the end I gave up with huge reluctance and took them back for a refund (no problem with Apple), as in every other respect these are brilliant. I wonder if Jaybird have compromised on the material used in order to be able to offer the lifetime sweat warranty. Shame. I might give them another go and get some compatible foam buds as suggested by another reviewer.

    Surprisingly positive

    • Written by from Aarhus C

    Just received the package an hour ago. Useful easy instructions emphazising importance of fit. Mine fit really well and they are no-bother-to-wear. Sound is really good, and I'm experienced in this field ! Looking forward to getting to know them even better.

    Fit smaller ears.. just!

    • Written by from Towcester

    I have tiny ears, and most in ear headphones don't fit me at all.
    In the standard configuration, I can't get these to stay in, but bought some comply tips, and in the over the ear configuration, stay in fine.

    The sound is great, as others have said, you must have them correctly fitted to get a decent bass.

    I've had these since July and have done some 6-7 hour training walks in them. Have also used them on the cross trainer & rower with no issues at all.

    Highly recommended.
