    One high-flyin' bird

    • Written by from Van Nuys

    I've had every generation of Bluetooth buds from Jaybird. Awesome product and customer service! I have been rockin' the BBX since the day they became available and can't wait for the next generation. So excited!!! I can't believe that there are any negative reviews. Maybe I've just been very lucky or maybe people are unknowingly purchasing illegal, pirated products that are not from Jaybird. Anyway, I take care I of my gear but, I workout 4+ days a week and never workout without my buds. I put them through some punishing sessions and then follow that up with 30+ minutes in the sauna, and yes, I wear them IN THE SAUNA!!! My workouts include every type of weight training that has been invented. I stick with one for two to three months then change. I also do HIIT sprints and bleachers on my OFF days, while wearing buds. I believe in sweat! If you ain't sweatin', you ain't workin'!! All that to say, I had to return my first pair of "JB-100's" because they kept dropping signal. Got the replacement pair, free of charge, and had no other problems. Next, the "JB-200's" and no problems. Then, the "Freedom". No problems. Got the "Freedom Sprint" buds and after the first week, they just simply stopped working all off the sudden. Returned, replaced for free, no problems after that. I've had the BBX for over one year now and no problems whatsoever. So, five and a half years, two mildly inconvenient problems which were remedied immediately and great customer service...
    ... if only JAYBIRD built cars. I'm a huge fan. Thank you to everyone at jaybird!

    Great Product. Excellent Customer Service

    • Written by from Toronto

    I've had my BlueBuds X for a year now and I use them everyday. I run with them, I sweat all over them and I haven't had any problems at all. They are comfortable, sound great and perform as indicated. Love the convenience of changing songs/accepting calls/adjusting volume with the remote. I recently lost one of the ear tips and JayBird customer service replaced them for free THE NEXT DAY to Canada. Great product - great service.

    Worthy.

    • Written by from Prescott

    Battery lasts longer than my 9-to-5; controls are slightly incongruous with standard EarPods - to skip to the next song you hold the volume up button for two seconds, which can be a long time if you need your hands; the wrap-around option is comfortable and low-profile; not perfect at noise isolation, but did make a recent fire-alarm test infinitely more bearable; sound quality is on-par with any commercial headphones you want to compare; connection is excellent - I've been >40ft away from source and still had distortion-free audio.

    1st really usable bluetooth headsets

    • Written by from Sarasota

    Tried many bluetooth headsets over the last several years. Always had many problems to make them unusable, such as connecting, poor battery life, uncomfortable, etc. These ones are perfect. I just put them on, turn them on and they work every time. Used for wide variety of exercises. Highly recommend.

    Good sound for runs

    • Written by from Sacramento

    I walk and/or run about 10 miles per day, in often fairly hot conditions, and even with considerable persperation, these stay in the ear well. I was always snagging the wires on other earbuds with my hands while walking and with these, there's no problem. Very comfortable. Sound quality is much better than other earbuds I have tried, including the Apple product. The Bluetooth has good range, I can walk around the house and most areas still have connectivity to the iPhone. Works well for phone calls. I also use them for TV listening late at night through a Clear Sounds Bluetooth transmitter (also recomended). When you get the buds well into the ear canal, bass is very good. When running, this usually isn't possible but sound is still good nevertheless. Charge lasts about 7 hours.

    Excellent!

    • Written by from Annapolis

    These are the best iteration of bluetooth earphones I've come across yet. The technology in these is leaps ahead of others and has come a long way in the past couple of years. Very lightweight, very unobtrusive design, great battery life (8hrs expected and it did last) and excellent sound quality. These act like any other bluetooth device, listen to music, take phone calls and hear everything in stereo.

    I have one small complaint. The earphone tips that come with this device are a silicone and do not fit well at all. Normally I use the standard medium size and usually never have trouble with foam pieces but this only comes with silicon pieces. If you search for Comply Foam Tips look for the T-500 series as these will fit these earphones. The Comply T-500s are a bit difficult to get one but they do fit and seal out sound and fit snugly. I picked up the T-500 multi-pack for $15 and now I'm good to go with workouts, cycling, etc. Very very pleased with this item.

    Great for athletes!

    • Written by from Chapel Hill

    I bought these after frustration with regular headphones shorting out after workouts. After reading several reviews on tech sites, and runner/workout sites (all highly rating them) I decided to pick them up.

    The paired easy with my phone and tablet, and after some tinkering with the ear pieces I was able to get a perfect fit. At first the bugged my ears and cause irritation but I figured out I was rotating to far forward, so after a slight turn backwards they not only stayed in but gave me 8 hours worth of comfort.

    I run at least 2 miles every morning and do Insanity at night with no issues of slipping out nor sweat causing shorts, or any other issues.

    Best Bluetooth headphones

    • Written by from Toronto

    These are my fifth (!) pair of Bluetooth headphones and my 3rd pair for sports activities. These are *by far* the best Bluetooth headphones I've used for running. Unlike most sub-compact pairs of Bluetooth headphones - they do not experience annoying signal dropouts if your transmitting device is not within perfect line of sight. The sound quality is almost identical to regular sports in-ear headphones. Battery life is good - about three hours for me. I recharge after every use - so far no problems with shortened battery life. I use with the iPod Nano and the iPad. My only quibble is that the little ear support braces fall off easily when removing the headphones. You have to remove the earphones carefully so as not to lose them.

    After some getting used to...

    • Written by from Pontypool

    These headphones are excellent. In terms of sound quality, you won't find better in the bluetooth variety. Admittedly, they did take some getting used to. Worse, they took some tinkering around with to find the perfect fit. After about a week of being irritated I finally did find the perfect fit, though, and couldn't be happier. The size is perfect and doesn't look obscene. The battery life lasts an entire workday. I was surprised to find that the headphones even connect to my device (iMac) from across the room (depends on device- doesn't work as well with iPad).

    Overall the convenience of being cordless is so worth the money paid for these headphones. I hope I still feel this way about them in the year(s) to come.

    The price to pay for freedom

    • Written by from Watertown

    After getting an iPhone 5 and having to deal with the (misplaced) headphone jack on the bottom always getting in the way, I couldn't take it any longer so I looked for a wireless headset. I came across these and was shocked by the price, but realized it was a small price to pay to not deal with that cord getting tangled up and yanked on all the time.

    At first I was impressed with the sound, the weight, size, but the ear buds didn't fit well and it was impossible to get a good seal without them falling out all the time. I was about it call it quits on these, when I found some after market earphone tips from a company called Comply. Not only did the new tips make these fit properly and keep the headphone from slipping out all the time, they improved the sound quality significantly as well as improved the isolation. If you can afford these, they are well worth the price, but some aftermarket earphone tips are a must to make these shine.

    Also, they battery life is great, and they work really well for making phone calls.

    BlueBuds X

    • Written by from Houston

    I bought these headphones mostly for the gym, however little did I know that they would become my go-to pair for everything. The bluetooth works well, the sound quality is great, the bass is not too heavy so you can turn up the volume without getting a headache. The battery level indicator on my iPhone 5 is awesome (my bro wishes he had that feature on his bluetooth Beats) and they last around 6hrs with a full charge, like 3 gym sessions for me.

    If you want these for the gym: There are clamps you can put on that make the headphones perfect for runs and very movement-heavy exercises. I sweat a lot and have had these for 4 months and theyre like new!

    If you want them for everyday use: I have mine connected to my iPad and MacBook Pro all the time and they work just fine, connecting them is not hard at all. Being a college student, I use them during walks and I love that they dont have cords.

    Probably one of my all time best purchases!

    Excellent light weight earbuds for running

    • Written by from Valhalla

    I was very hesitant once I bought these that they would stay fit while running. I think all the reviews are correct in that the under ear configuration does not work well for running as the cord side with the on/off dongle pulls the cord to one side and is not optimal. However, with the over the ear configuration, these buds are fantastic.

    Pros:
    - Lightweight
    - Excellent sound
    - Excellent battery life
    - Good over ear fit
    - Fit is modifiable with given accessories

    Cons:
    - Price
    - Poor under ear fit
    - Does not work well as a microphone
    - Really only useful for exercise

    Perfect

    • Written by from Frisco

    After purchasing these earbuds i was a little nervous about 3 things

    - Did I spend too much Price
    - How comfortable do they fit in my ears
    - How much do these weigh

    After working out at YMCA i must say the price is definitely worth it. I've never spent so much on a pair of headphones in my life but at the same time i have never used such a comfortable, light weight, and awesome pair in my life before. The wireless bluetooth feature is by far the coolest thing. I still have no idea how they were able to cram a battery and bluetooth adapter into them because they are so light weight. ITs also very nice of them to include extra ear pieces so you can make sure they fit your ear properly. Best purchase i have made in a long time. And as a bonus feature they make you wanna work out just so you can use them!!!

    Very nearly perfect

    • Written by

    These wireless headphones are a fantastic product. Somehow they manage to get great battery life and provide quality, balanced audio in a package only marginally larger than a standard wired in-ear headphone. Microphone performance is good enough to use Siri accurately, meaning you can leverage the best technology has to offer for an effortlessly futuristic experience -- and you don't have to worry about your phone calls being misunderstood.

    Jaybird claims to have developed their own implementation of the SBC codec to improve audio quality and performance over standard BT headsets. I believe it. This is one of many features that show the passion Jaybird's engineers have for wireless sport headphones. Good attention to detail.

    I've had these headphones for a week now and I am impressed. If you're looking for a nice pair of bluetooth headphones and prefer the clarity of noise-isolating in-ear headphones you'd be foolish to pass these over.

    Note: I originally purchased a pair from a major B&M retailer. That pair had an audible radio buzz and less than stellar signal reception (Jaybird's live support told me to return them as defective). The pair I ordered from Apple appears to have a slightly revised housing and I've noticed "Jenna" now gives a low battery alert (in contrast to the earlier revision's beeping). They're the same price elsewhere, so don't be daft.

    Have been using wired earphones during my workouts but the wires get in the way. Tried several bluetooth ones but this one is the best for me. Stays in place, great sound, also, able to put up with my strenuous workouts without a problem.

    Best in-ear headphones, period.

    • Written by from Shediac

    Negative reviews from what I've heard are because of the phone they are using or perhaps a faulty product... but this product comes with a lifetime guarantee. How many devices these days come with that?

    First of all, my experience with these headphones have exceeded my expectations. Now let it be known that I have the iPhone 5. The audio NEVER cuts out, and I've tried this at a pretty decent distance. Also, the connection never cuts out or drops whenever it's in your pocket.

    This is REALLY cool, the fact that these Bluetooth headphones sound this well and stay connected this well. BUT, what really has me sold on this product is that fact that they will STAY IN YOUR EARS!

    I've searched far and wide to find in-ear headphones that wouldn't fall out of my ears, so I could go running or simply walk in town with my dog, but these headphones are also excellent for working out and playing sports!

    It's a little tricky finding the right size for the slide-on features that will in the end help them stay nice and tight in your ear without feeling pressure and making your ear sore.

    The fact that you can have them behind or have them hanging down is another big plus. Personally I prefer them to be behind on my neck.

    I would HIGHLY recommend this product! The differences between the two BlueBuds X on here is simply the colour, both should work the same.
