    Huge Let Down....

    • Written by from Clayton

    I really wanted to like these headphones (I wanted wireless headphones for working out & walking around) but I had too many problems to justify keeping them. JayBird provides 3 different size ear tips & I tried them all. The large ones seemed to provide the best seal inside my ears but I could feel them slipping out with any type of significant movement. Once the earbuds begin to slip outside of your ear, you begin to lose the bass. I was somewhat willing to overlook this & push them back inside my ears every few minutes but then the battery life was no where near the advertised specs. After around 40 minutes of continuous use with Rdio's music app, I'd hear the battery low warning message which means that you only have 15 - 20 minutes left. I recharged the batteries & got the same results. Unacceptable! Sadly, I returned the BlueBuds to the store for a refund.

    Do Not Buy

    • Written by from Littleton

    Painful fit, low volume, heavy on ears, cord too long, cord pulls at neck, no way to know when they will all of a sudden run out of power, way too big - stick out of ears quite far, case is useless, power cover is plastic and cheap and will break quickly.

    Ok.. I'm very mad about this.. I bought them like 2 months ago, I used It for 1 week and They stop charging, I went to an apple Store and They changed them and gave me a new ones... (for the record, this headphones here in Mexico are like $140.00 dollars). I used the new one like for another 2 weeks and a half and today they stop charging.. They are selling the nice box and the idea of the bluetooth but really is a very poor quality.

    And just another thing that really impressed me: In the web page you can see people sweating and making exercise with them, and the funny thing is that when you open the box of the headphone the first thing you can read is: DON'T SWEAT IT YOU'RE GUARANTEED.

    So really for me is a big joke this headphone.. shame.

    Stop working occasionally

    • Written by from La Crosse

    I second and third all the reviews on how great these headphones are in terms of quality and sound, but also the reviews about the price and even worse on how these stop working. I've had the freedoms and the freedom sprints and never had a single issue with them, but I've had these for less than a week, and despite being fully charged and new they disconnect themselves from my iphone and mac randomly a lot and it takes a few minutes for me to turn them off and reconnect. Bummer. Guess I'm taking these back, going back to my freedoms, and waiting for the next version :/

    Great when they work......poor reliability

    • Written by from Watlington

    I recently bought a pair having used the original Jaybees for some years. The sound quality is fantastic and the comfort and fit exceptional, however.......they worked fine the first time out, but the subsequent 3 times after a full charge, they have shown full charge on the new battery icon on the phone yet after 20-30 mins they repeatedly try to dial my last called number and then shut down without warning and then won't reconnect until after another full charge then the same happens again. They will be returned. Reading other reviews it seems to be a common problem.

    Just don't hold up

    • Written by from San Antonio

    Great sound, awesome fit, and love the wireless, but alas, they did not hold up. After about 3 weeks, and right in the middle of a run, they cut off and I was never able to get them to come back on. I exchanged them for another pair at Bestbuy and within the next week they stopped working. In the middle of crossfit session and they continued to redial my phone repeatedly before shutting down completely. Again, could not get them to come back on. Not sure they stand up to sweat as much as Jaybird claims. I managed to return them and get the $170 back (thanks to the extra insurance I paid). If Jaybird fixes this glitch, these will be well worth the money.

    Expected great sound but

    • Written by from Vancouver

    The first thing I found was that the sound quality was poorer than the standard iPhone earbuds. For the price I expected them to sound at least as good if not better. I got just about one hour's worth of play with them and then I got 'powering off' - with no warning they shut down. I tried to power on, nothing. I tried charging them again (after doing so the night before), nothing. They are on their way back. For the money I expect to get a good quality product.

    3 pairs just stop working disappointed

    • Written by from Dawsonville

    I just sent back my third pair of jay birds bluebuds x units. They all started out working and sounding terrific at first ...but after an hour or so of running/working out they just power off on there own for no apparent reason and will not come back on. Extremely frustrating. The jay birds service person I spoke with says perhaps I just sweat too much. :-/. If it were one pair I would chalk it up to chance but I literally have tried three pairs and each one the exact same thing happened. I'm going to go try some wired premium head phones now.
