    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.

    Dead after 3 months

    • Written by from sao paulo

    I bought the JayBird BlueBuds in november/2014 at the Apple Store in Orlando. It worked perfectly for 3 months. Deep bass, good sound and easy connection. I used them to workout in the gym 2 hours a day, from mondays to fridays. But, suddenly, they began to turn on and off repeatedly and I cannot use them anymore.. I do not recommend these headphones.

    BlueBuds X - Power Issues

    • Written by from Marietta

    I just wanted to refute the reviews saying that the headphones won't connect to the iPhone 6. This is absolutely wrong. I got the iPhone 6 on release day and connected my headphones to it, literally minutes after the purchase. They work great! I would suggest that the people saying they don't work on the new devices did not pair them correctly. I have had absolutely no issue connecting these headphones to a multitude of devices. The only issue I've had is with the power. After using the BlueBuds for about 9 months, they have started having issues powering on. No matter how long I hold the power button, they won't power up, even though they are fully charged. A few times, my issue was resolved by simply connecting them to the charging cord for a minute or two and then disconnecting and powering them up. This would seem to "reset" them and they would power on normally until the next time they had to be charged. Unfortunately, this method is no longer working either. The LED charge indicator light immediately turns green when I plug them in. This indicates that the headphones think that they are fully charged even though they are not, and seems to be preventing them from "resetting" as they were before. I did some googling after this happened, and it seems to be a very common issue. Jaybird customer service is supposed to be good with resolutions, so I'm going to contact them about it. Aside from the power issue, I absolutely love these headphones. The sound quality is outstanding, the functionality is excellent, and not having to deal with a cord is incredibly convenient.

    Good design. Not sweatproof.

    • Written by from New York

    Really wanted to love these headphones. Design is very good, with ability to loop cables over your ears if you need more stability when exercising. Also provides small "clips" so cable doesn't sit on your neck when working it, which would be annoying and is how the older version works unfortunately.

    Where these fall down, and in a very serious way, is they don't withstand sweat as advertised. While there is a lifetime warranty against malfunction due to sweat (buyer beware: at company's discretion), my headphones fail in less than 90 days every single time I've owned them when I've worked out regularly. It becomes such a pain to have to send them back (at your own expense, at least the first few times) and wait for your new ones to arrive.

    I'd look elsewhere. Can't stress this enough. The older version with a less attractive design is much more resistant to sweat.

    'buds not re-charging

    • Written by from chiswick

    Once I'd sorted the fit in the ears out all was going fine until, one day, the 'buds would not take a charge. Reading thru' the reviews, this appears to be a common type of failure in what should be a premium product. Not impressed. Until Jaybird address and rectify this fault I'd buy something else.

    Absolutely great until they stopped working. First they would not hold a charge. Then, they would not take one at all. Totally dead

    Dies suddenly.

    • Written by from istanbul

    The first set died in four weeks and the second set in three months. I have the third pairs now and waiting for when will happen again. I think they are not completely sweat proof. Because they both died during running.
    Replacement is a big issue, if you live a country where there is no jaybird support and apple store.
    I replaced my third pair in Hong Kong apple store where i bought it. They first refused to replace it, then changed their mind.

    Nice when were working

    • Written by from Escobedo

    Had 2 of these headphones and both stopped working with same issues, I bought the second ones because I thought I was lucky with the first ones, but not the second ones had the same problem that the first ones and like many other reviews they worked for about a month then just stopped working for any reason, when I plug them to charge the led light goes to green and never turn on, too expensive for the quality they're built.

    Sound great, fit secure even they look nice, but just last a month of use.

    Would have gotten a 5 star rating...

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I purchased these earbuds on December 18th 2014. I used them in the gym and I used them outside. They stood up very well and never once fell out of my ears. I was even willing to overlook the fact that they seem to trap sweat in your ear and require quick removal and wiping half way through a workout. The best thing of all? They didn't have any lip-syncing issues AT ALL. I could watch a movie on the elliptical and never once see anything off in the timing of the audio against the video (for those who purchased PowerBeats 2, you'll know thats a big deal). But at the end of the day, the biggest issue of all is that they simply don't continue working.

    After a couple weeks they would drop the pairing. Then they would spontaneously turn off. Then they would spontaneously turn back on and try redialing my phone... over and over and over again. Then... they died. Regardless of the full charge and all the cajoling I tried, these babies were dead less than a month into owning them.

    According to the warranty, they have a lifetime guarantee against sweat. Based on the apparent glitchy behaviour of the control buttons, I am 100% certain that perspiration is what caused this issue. I have since bought a pair of Beats Tour, but if Jaybird ever owned up to this problem and fixed it, I would definitely try them again. In the mean time... anyone would be crazy to buy these earbuds. Do your research and you will see that the Bluebud X is notorious for this problem with some users going through 3 or more replacements and dealing with more frustration than they should ever have to. At this rate, they should be paying the consumer to try them out... its redials that this issue exists and that it is so predominant. Again... I DO NOT RECOMMEND THESE EARBUDS AT THIS TIME.

    Not sweatproof...

    • Written by from Mission Viejo

    Wore these for running for two weeks, first failure after 7 runs - just stops playing, as though the control has been activated (NOT A BATTERY PROBLEM). Doesn't begin working properly again until dried out. Gave it 5 more runs, had the same issue runs 11 & 12. They remain in-ear as advertised, and battery life is good (pluses). Even tried using the supplied ties to keep the controller from touching me, but it still failed, though only marginally wet with sweat. If they were sweatproof, I would have kept them. Ended up returning them. Great idea, and if truly sweatproof, I would still have them. Probably deserves more stars for fit & sound, however, that doesn't count if they just shut off.

    Almost perfect!

    • Written by from Seattle

    I was looking for a pair of wireless in-ear headphones for workouts and, after trying multiple brands (Denon, JBL, Motorola, Plantronics, Sony, Yurbuds), I need up returning them all. I ended up keeping these after witnessing the battery life and sound they provided over the others. Not to mention the ease of use with the iPhone and Siri worked great. That being said, I couldn't keep ANY headphones in my ears for a long period of time without my ears hurting, including the Jaybirds.

    I ended up keeping the Bluebuds though because I decided to try a pair of custom ear molds. Decibullz makes ear molds specifically for the Bluebuds for really cheap. Once I put them on, I couldn't believe just how comfortable they felt. I barely knew they were there.

    Amazing! Just make sure you READ directions.

    • Written by from phoenix

    These are hands down the best bluetooth buds I have tried and I have tried just about every pair out there.

    These are NOT for everyone and may take some time to properly fit but when you do, it is well worth it. There are multiple ways to wear them and fit them depending on your usage. All of this is easily available on their website.

    At first the ear fittings may be a bit uncomfortable if you use the optional ear pieces , the rubber is a bit stiff at first but loosens up as it fits to your ear.

    Make sure that you use the bud size that creates a snug fit, if you use one too small it will lose most of the bass effect and fit looser.

    Yes there are other earbuds with better fit and sound, but they are not wireless bluetooth so don't expect it to sound like a pair of Beats Studio be realistic.

    I use these primarily for working out, running and cycling/skateboarding. I use them everyday and they have outlasted and performed all others. 4 of my gym friends have bought them and all agree that there is no comparison.

    Finally, headphones for running that don't fall out of my ears

    • Written by from Redding

    These headphones have a long battery life, look good and have a low profile for wireless headphones. No wires between your iPhone and the headphones means no more accidental yanking the headphones out of your ear. They're comfortable for running and survive getting a little wet from sweat and or a little rain.

    Stopped powering on after 2 months

    • Written by from Vidor

    These bluetooth headphones would get a 5 star review if the had not stopped working. 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.

    Now I've gone through two sets of these. Both failed due to sweat I presume.

    Very Disappointed

    • Written by from Phoenix

    Bought these for my wife and I for outdoor activities. My set worked for 2 uses and then they started cutting out whenever the earbud was moved slightly and the control buttons malfunctioned causing all 3 buttons to only function as on/off buttons. My wife's battery only lasted about 3 hours from day one and this has not improved with recharging. Not quite the claimed 8 hours of run time. The buds wiil also not stay in place. Standard iPhone buds stay in place much better.
