    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.

    Power on / charging issues

    • Written by from Singapore

    I have had the same problem with power as others have highlighted before.
    Essentially you cannot turn on the earphones even after charging them. If you connect a USB cable for about two seconds, and power on the earphones immediately, they can power on and will carry on as long as there is something playing. If you pause for even 5 seconds, they stop working and power down. You cannot turn them on until you insert some USB cable again.

    It is mysterious - either the battery has not charged but it think it is fully charged. Or the battery is charged but the device does not recognize it and therefore does not turn on.

    JayBird customer service advised me to reset the device. That seemed to help but was deceptive. Within a week it was back to the old state.

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? Apart from this, the earphones are fantastic but this is a complete dealbreaker since they simply do not power on / work.

    Returned for Dr. Dre Beats bluetooth buds (no bass in these)

    • Written by from Grand forks

    My two complaints about Jaybirds are the lack of bass in this product, it's flat mono sounding and that is about it. The second complaint is getting your money back. I've called they're customer care dept 5 different times about a refund and get the same old run around, oh it takes us 7-10 business days to issue a refund. It's been over 10 days and I have yet to see my money back. Today the phones are down. Nothing but frustration from JayBird!

    Battery died just stops charging

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

    They're great

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    To keep it brief these headphones are good and never gave me problems. I had them for months and did intense workouts in them and they haven't broke from sweat. People must be sweating gallons and dipping them in it lol Sound quality is respectable and takes about 10 seconds to set up with your iPhone. Once linked it is automatic when turned on. Works simple with Mac, iPhone, & iPad. Only complaints you can probably make is that it picks up a lot of background noise on phone calls and FaceTime. Battery life is good also for normal workouts

    Overall Very Satisfied

    • Written by from waxhaw

    So far I think these are great bluetooth headphones. I use mine mostly for running and I do sweat a lot. So far I've had no problems with the sound quality, base or connection. I had been using the LG Tone Pro set. Initially I thought they were ok. The sound quality was good but the connection was very choppy and because they are a bit heavier they would bounce up and down on my collar bone. After a few miles it started to become aggravating. Then the left speaker stopped working so I started to review different options.

    I read a lot of reviews on the Bluebuds and was very skeptical but finally decided to give them a shot. I'm very happy I did. Initially I wasn't wearing the ear "wings" and they kept falling out, especially once I really started sweating. I attached the wings this morning for the first time and went for a run. I'm happy to say that they stayed in place the whole run. I love the weightless feeling of the bluebuds. I do not use them as a phone head set, so the controls are fine with me. After reading all the negative reviews about the base, I'm wondering what's wrong with these people.While running, I listen to high energy techno that has a lot of treble and base. Before writing this review I listened to several different songs. Rock, Rap, Techno and the levels seem great to me. Maybe these people have a better ear for sound then I do. Not sure what they're not hearing in the sound quality.

    I've ran with them on 6 different runs so far. Typically about 3-5 miles per run. I have had no issues with the bluetooth connection. Sweat, at least so far, has not had an impact on the sound or operation. The cost of the headphones does not bother me as long as they hold out. I'd rather pay for quality and have them last vs buying a cheaper pair that stop working after a few months, but we'll see.

    I would definitely recommend these headphones. You'll have to tweak the earpiece at first because they are unconventional. Other than that I think they are great. As long as they hold out, I'm a fan. I'll come back in 5-6 months and let you know how they're doing.

    Fantastic BT Earbuds

    • Written by from Chester

    These are what I have been waiting for someone to invent for the longest time. The sound is fantastic. The bass is superb and music sounds excellent. Can't recommend them enough. Worth the money.

    I bought these earplugs for $170 and used them without any problem for one week. The left earplug would quit after about 30 minutes while running which was aggravating. After one month the earphones would go directly to green when plugged in to charge and never accept a charge. Of course I did not bring the receipt with me while traveling in the Mid East so in the trash they will go! What a shame as they seemed like a good idea and looked like they were quality, but alas; they are just junk. Save your money and get a proven product. I gave it one star as zero stars is not an option

    Jaybird bluebuds X premium bluetooth headphones are a dud

    • Written by from LAFAYETTE

    I can't speak highly of these wireless earbuds. I found it very difficult to get the earbuds to fit properly in my ear. The earbud unit is large and sticks out awkwardly. Worse yet, the battery lasted barely 2 hrs each time I used it. Bought them to ski with and hear tunes. Got a dud. I don't recommend them. Will wait next time until Bose comes out with wireless earbuds.

    Sound OK but too many problems

    • Written by from Mississauga

    It takes like forever to make it fit and then it keeps disconnecting. Don't even think about calling them for help. This is the worst product I have ever bought. There are many alternatives with half the price. Definitely not worth.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Very good sound and once you find the right fit, they are very enjoyable for training, plus they give lots of freedom. Battery last long.

    Best headphones I've had, but be careful how you recharge it.

    • Written by from GREENBRAE

    I really like these headphones. It's great not having to untangle a cord, the sound is very good, and the distance you can range from the phone while maintaining clear reception is large +/-10 meters (as advertised). The only problem I've had is the battery life, but I learned that you should not recharge the unit using a wall socket or a car lighter (thru a USB adapter) because the charge is too strong. That will burn out the battery. It's best to only recharge it with a computer.

    Good sound...very poor battery lifespan

    I have had three pair of JayBird. The last time I tried the premium BlueBuds with better hopes. Same problem...They worked very well for two months. Then it stopped holding any battery charge. I had to return them.

    Don't be misled by the crafty packaging....

    • Written by from Dallas

    I find it hard to believe that a group of well educated designers/engineers could have ever signed off on this design. I'll just list the cons. Bulky buds don't stay in your ears. Cheap feel to buds. They supply a plethora of different fitting pieces because they know they aren't going to fit in the first place. Way to much extra cord. They provide a cheap clip type item that you have to wind the wire up in to keep it from dangling on the back of your neck. I've purchased two sets of BlueBuds hoping the design would improve and neither set made it past 24 hours.

    I'm unbiased towards brands and I just have to tell anyone considering these buds.......if your serious about music or sports,....go with the Plantronics BackBeat Fit. You'll be much happier.
