    Well-Designed!

    • Written by from TORONTO

    Just replaced my Plantronics wireless earbuds & these are better in every way. The volume is loud, the sound quality is excellent, the fit is secure, the cable connecting the earbuds comes with clips to shorten it. Went for a run and these stayed securely in place the whole time. The BlueBuds even come with a nice case! They are pricey but definitely the best I've used.

    So So Quality, Bad Customer Service

    • Written by from Shelby Township

    the earbuds are okay. sound is good, but impossible to get them to fit properly, or stay in, because of shape of buds and rubber ear insert. what's more, when my charging cord went bad in the first two months, they would not replace it. simply refused and told me any android charging cord would work. this was my second problem purchase from this company. they have flashy advertising, but that's basically all you're paying for. you can get a much higher quality set of earphones for the price they are charging. plus, do you want to pay for non-existent customer service?

    Good while they lasted

    • Written by from Ottawa

    Good while they lasted. Unfortunately today, like so many others have reported with these headphones, they simply died. They no longer turn on or charge. It's been less than a year since I bought them, so I assume the Apple Store will cover the warranty replacement. Let's see how log the second pair lasts. Wish me luck (Ill report back here in another year, when those ones fail...).

    Best Bluetooth headset yet but not sweat proof

    • Written by from Oro Valley

    PRO
    -best sound quality I've heard for bluetooth.
    -good dynamic range and volume.
    -comfortable
    -stay in ears pretty well with activity
    -good range: I can keep my phone in the locker and use my bluebuds all over the gym

    CONS
    -Sounds cuts out momentarily about once per minute
    -when you wear them over the ears, sweat from your hair shorts out the controls.
    -The little rubber hooks that help hold the earpieces in fall off easily and get lost
    -Earpieces break their seal during workout and you loose the base

    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.

    Great sounding, reliable headphones

    • Written by from Rockport

    I've been using these for almost a year now, and there's little negative I can say about them. The sound is very good, great noise-cancelling (I use them a lot for flying), and they fit like a glove for me. I've been especially impressed with the wireless reliability: I usually keep my iPhone in my pocket, and it's rare when the connection is disrupted. Highly recommended.

    Great!

    • Written by from Columbia

    My experience with these has been almost entirely positive!
    Pros:
    Battery life is best I've seen
    Easy to wear and don't fall out (disclaimer: I wear earplugs at work, so I don't mind them stuffed in my ear canals)
    Easily switches from one device to the next, unlike most Bluetooth headsets
    Controls on device are easy to use and intuitive
    Battery meter on Apple devices
    Best sound I've ever heard for an in-ear device, wired or Bluetooth
    Cons:
    The earphone tips, although adequate, limit bass performance. If you stuff them deep in your ear canal everything is improved, but movement of the jaw causes them to back out a bit and letting in outside noise and bleeding out bass. I fixed this with COMPLY Premium Earphone Tips, but these cost extra, are harder to get in your ears & disintegrate over time.
    No battery meter on non-Apple devices
    Not everything I want on the equipment's controls are there (e.g. hang up a phone call)

    I've had two co-worker buy these after seeing mine and they are as happy as I am.

    Don't buy if you sweat

    • Written by from Centennial

    Sound quality - great
    Build - great
    controls - adequate
    fit- pathetic - worst ever easily. The hydrophobic nature of the earbuds pushes them out of your ears. Running along while it's cold until you sweat no problem - sweating they won't stay in place for 10 strides.
    Value - poor

    I could live in these!

    • Written by from Kilauea

    I don't even say that I buy headphones anymore, I just trial them because one day with flawed phones and all I can do is give them away.

    I hate wires getting tangled when I work out, and don't even like them around my neck. I tried these in the "under ear" configuration and liked the sound and the fit, but the cable bouncing around got on my nerves... THEN I took the time to set them up over the ear and use the little clips to take out the slack and it was PERFECT!

    Great sound, solid, solid fit and no bouncing cable! Good in the rain and I can hear around them when they are turned off. Just make sure you take 5 minutes to get the little tabs tabs and ear pieces fitted properly for your ears.

    Of note, the over the ear configuration is not recommended for voice calls as the microphone is positioned behind the left ear. That is not an issue for me, but it might be for you. I love these phones and they will be my go to headset for the foreseeable future.

    Sudden Death

    • Written by from Washington

    My first ones died in a week, second pair lasted five months, third ones two months. All of them died suddenly while I was running. Gong for my fourth pair one because I can't get my money back. Costumer service have been very attentived and I haven't had problems replacing them but I am guessing they are not really sweat proof. The only reason I'm giving two stars is because of a very good costumer service and when the BlueBuds work they are awesome but unfotunately they keep dying.

    Poor Value. Sound and Fit are bad at best.

    • Written by from Salt Lake City

    Marketed highly as a headphone for the active lifestyle, I was let down across the board. Fit was intolerable even with "proper fitment". Sound quality was comparable to earbuds that came with the your 1980s pocket rocker. They have lots of outside noise penetration. Sometimes they sound like the sound is in mono. They are kinda easy to pair, but generally controls are vague.

    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!

    Good but need refinement

    • Written by from Warren

    I ended up returning these. . . Sound is quite good, but they have more bass than is true to the recording. I had to dial this down to be accurate. They use their own tone mapping. Also I found them to be very uncomfortable. They are BIG and stick out of your ear a lot more than comparable models. The Bose in-ear headphones are 10x more comfortable and use the same style of in ear retention system. The JayBird models have a much harder rubber piece that causes ear fatigue over more than 30min of use. Also to use them in the 'traditional' method vs the behind the ear is a PAIN to switch back and forth, pretty much chose one method and thats it. Takes too long to switch. Lastly PLEASE do away with the voice over on connecting, and volume controls, I know its louder when its louder, do not need a really annoying beep, also know its connected when it plays, do not need a voice to say 'connected'.

    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.

    Tangle-Free Workouts

    • Written by from Airmont

    Bought these to replace a wired pair of sony sport headphones that I used for running. I was concerned about the fit in my ear, and the ability for the buds to stay in place. I am happy to report that the fit and comfortability is great. Sound quality and battery life are not a problem. Would definitely recommend this product.

    NOT for Working OUT

    • Written by from Arlington

    Sweat ruins these headphones. Shows fully charged but will not turn on. Great for music while doing tasks while you are not sweating. Also Used while playing basketball with no issues. But extreme workouts that cause profuse sweating will cause these to stop working. Not worth a buck and a half

    Still work after going through wash twice

    • Written by from San Mateo

    Was shocked by the number of 1 star reviews and looks like largely due to quality issues. I have to say I was one of the first to buy, around 18 months ago, and they have lasted spectacularly well, been on multiple ski trips and treated rough.

    But the pinnacle of their durability had to be going through two full wash cycles in the washing machine and surviving, both times, with the help of some rice and TLC. No loss of audio quality.

    Was blown away the second time they went through and still worked.

    A Dream Come True

    • Written by from Denver

    I've dreamed of headphones like this for years!! I'm a klutzy audiophile, and the cord on my headphones has always driven me nuts. I have the beats over-ear Bluetooth headphones as well, but these are much better for daily use. I bought them about 6 months ago, I wear them for nearly eight hours a day, and I've never for a moment been disappointed!

    The sound quality is wonderful, and the design is comfortable! These do not disappoint!

    I should add that I use these in the following settings: in the gym, running/walking outside, in the office, at home (especially while cooking and cleaning), under my helmet while riding my scooter. I've also synced them to a variety of devices including my iPad, iPad mini, iPhone 5, and MacBook Air. They are easy to sync, and switching between devices is simple and painless.

    Not for everyone

    • Written by from Logan

    I had a difficult time fitting for my ears. After 3-4 hours of finding the best fit I loved them for about a week. The more I moved the harder it was to keep them in my ears. I think I might have a unique ear canal or something. I bought these because they look great and are great in theory. I returned them today ultimately because they were falling out as I was eating my lunch trying to watch a movie on my mobile device. I wish they worked out for me.
