    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.

    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.

    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.

    Love this!

    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.

    Would buy these again in a heartbeat!

    • Written by from London

    When I decided to invest in Bluetooth headphones I spent hours researching products and settled on these and they do not disappoint. Anyone who says they do not stay put need to spend a bit more time fitting them because once you have the right cushion size and angle of the tips they do not budge. These are perfect for the gym but also for work as we have a no cell policy but I can have it locked away in my desk but still listen to music. The battery life has impressed me and only once have they died on me but I was well informed by the “Jenna voice prompts” that the battery was low. The sound quality is great and the white noise filtering was tested at my gym when they had a live DJ blasting horrible music that was drowned out once my headphones were on.

    Really appreciated these buds until the battery died after about 10 months usage. Will not buy again at this price.

    Not what I expected

    • Written by from Drayton

    I thought these would be very cool. I tried them on and they didn't stay in my ear. It didn't matter which gel I popped on. The ear bud part is so big (probably because of the wireless feature) that it weighs down the bud and slides out of my ear. I have to say the biggest disappointment though was that when you change volume up or down there is an audible beep and a slight pause in music playback. For the price I paid this was unacceptable. I give 2 stars because the sound quality was pretty good and the materials are premium. I returned them to apple the very next day.

    Best headphones ever

    • Written by from Westlake village

    I am an avid triathlete and can't train without my music. These headphones are easy to connect, and sound amazing. They are extremely comfortable, and are extremely sweat proof. I honestly don't know where I would be without them. Now I just need Ironman to allow headphones during the races. Absolutely recommend these to anyone who needs music while training.

    Best Bluetooth Headset available!

    • Written by from Spartanburg

    I bought my first set of BlueBuds X exclusively for running. I sweat a LOT during my runs and I haven't had any trouble with my BlueBuds whatsoever in the 15 months I've used them. Other bluetooth headsets I have owned usually lasted anywhere from a few weeks to a few months before they died from moisture. The sound quality of the BlueBuds is incredible but they do require a bit of patience while you trial-and-error your way to the proper earbud size for your ears. To get the amazing bass and sound quality that this headset offers, you have to get a complete seal in your ear - which for some people is not comfortable out of the gate. I found that, for me, I like to have mine a little looser in my ear to keep them comfortable and with that, I give up a little sound quality, but not enough to worry about.

    I recently bought a 2nd set of BlueBuds X for my son to use in his football workouts and trips and he LOVES them. He uses them constantly and in very sweaty conditions as well. No problems so far! I highly recommend this headset and think that the problems listed in some of the other reviews where the headsets died quickly must be from an earlier generation of product. No signs of that in mine!

    When they work, they're great

    • Written by from Allen

    When they work, the sound and quality is great. I've had multiple issues with them not working. Not holding a charge, and then Jaybirds the company hasn't been that responsive. I love the no wires, but this is the third brand of BT headphones and I may have to go back to the dreaded wires.

    First pair stopped working because of sweat damage. Just recently the second pair died for no reason. Hard to get a good fit for premium sound . Support is excellent though.

    Almost Perfect

    • Written by from College Park

    I bought these on the recommendation of a Best Buy sales associate without researching. The headphones are pretty easy to pair, but getting the right fit took some time. Once I figured that out, I immediately understood why the sales associate recommended them. They sound fantastic and are on par with my Klipsch S4 headphones. The bass is nice and deep and I can hear the mids and highs as well. I listen to them while on public transportation without hearing much background noise. I thought the mic/volume controller would be heavy, but I don't feel it at all. About the only thing I don't like about these is the call quality. Nearly everyone I talk to complains about the call quality. I intend to keep these for my commute and to take to the gym, but for calls in my car, I'll continue to use a bluetooth earpiece.

    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.

    Poor fit and quality

    • Written by from Chicago

    Constantly fall out during workouts. Not a reliable set of earphones. I have tried all attachments and combinations to adjust the fit. Earphones need to be simple. These aren't ready for prime time yet.

    Great Headphone - If only they would stay in place.

    • Written by from North Vancouver

    The headphones are a significant improvement on their previous Freedom model, with great crisp clear sound, strong base, improved battery life, and no bluetooth dropouts, but they don't stay in place. The securefit doesn't stay in place while running, either with the cable down or using the crossfit method. The reason that I can see is that the sports ear cushions move around on the headphone as I run. The ring of the cushion is to thin unlike the Freedom model. The Freedom model stays in place but this version doesn't!!! In every other way they are great. This needs fixing for these to be an excellent rival to wired headphones.

    THE. BEST.

    • Written by from West Wareham

    These headphones are the BEST blu-tooth headphones you are going to be able to find. Sound is UNREAL They take noise-cancelling to a whole new level. You hear nothing except the sounds of your music, radio...whatever.

    I went through 2 other pairs blu-tooth HP's (motorola and I can't remember the other) these are BY FAR superior to any other. My advice, pay a little more for these, YOU WILL LOVE THEM and your extra $$ spent will be justified
