Product Information

  • Overview

    Shift Premium Bluetooth Audio. Bluetooth rewritten.

    Integrating a custom implementation of the native Bluetooth SBC codec, which JayBird calls Shift, BlueBuds X headphones deliver a level of purity and sound that rivals and challenges the best in wired headphones. A great feature of Shift is that it's pair and play, so nothing special is required on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, just standard Bluetooth.

    PureSound white noise filtering

    All in-ear headphones (wired or wireless) create white noise, which over time results in listener fatigue. JayBird's on-board filtering system, called PureSound, filters out and eliminates the white noise to give you a clean audio experience. This is especially helpful for long workouts when you've turned up the volume to motivate yourself.

    Playtime to up to eight hours

    Though they're among the smallest Bluetooth buds available, BlueBuds X pack an impressive eight hours of playtime—double the duration that was previously possible from such a small design. And for convenience, it uses a standard micro-USB connector for charging and includes a battery status icon on screen for iPhone users.

    Patented secure fit

    Patented sports ear cushions hug into the top, back, and lower surface areas of your ear—all essential for the most secure fit during sports and fitness activities.

    X-Fit for over- or under-ear fit options

    JayBird's patent pending X-Fit design lets you use the headphones either in the traditional under-ear wearing style for music and calls or over-ear—completely free of any cord on your neck—so it feels like you don't have any headphones on.

    Signal Plus

    Designed for running and outdoor sports, Signal Plus maintains a clear constant signal to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch no matter where it is.

    Jenna Voice prompts

    Don't worry if you haven't used Bluetooth before, BlueBuds X offers voice prompts for easy use.

    These headphones are incredible! I bought them to replace a pair of Motorola Bluetooth headphones that I bought on Amazon. I'm a These headphones are incredible! I bought them to replace a pair of Motorola Bluetooth headphones that I bought on Amazon. I'm an extremely heavy sweater and the Motorola's stopped working after only two weeks. I've had the JayBirds for almost a year and a half and they're still going strong!

    First, they almost never fall out of your ear. I do a lot of Crossfit and the only time they start to come loose is when I'm jumping rope for an extended period of time. The "waffles" really help hold them in place.

    Next, they stand up to excessive sweat extremely well. I'm in the Army and was deployed to the Middle East for the last eight months, through the summer months when the average temperature was over 120 degrees. And through that heat and my sweat, these headphones still work with zero issues.

    They also work okay across a gym. I can set my iPhone down next to a rack and walk around the gym pretty freely without losing quality or the connection.

    The only reason that I gave them four stars and not five is because there isn't a battery indicator on them. So you may end up losing music in the middle of your workout due to the battery dying. But honestly, that's more my problem than the headphones - I could have charged them every three or four days regardless of whether or not they needed to be charged.

    I would definitely recommend these to someone looking for quality Bluetooth headphones.

For running i've tried everything but i HATE the cord tangle that goes with all of them. i tried a few bluetooth versions but they were not stable or didn't stay in the ear or gave pretty poor sound. These guys seemed to have nailed it!

    Works well. Fits well (make sure you experiment to get the tips and the wings just right for you). It makes a big difference in the amount of sound that goes in (especially during activity).

    Pleasantly surprised with them. Well done Jaybird! They took an extra year to come out but overall they seem well worth it.

    I had 2 S9s and 2 S10HDs both died due to sweat. I HATE, HATE Wired headphone because I primarily use my headphone during workout I had 2 S9s and 2 S10HDs both died due to sweat. I HATE, HATE Wired headphone because I primarily use my headphone during workout sessions. This BlueBuds X is by far has the best sound, comfort & battery life. You have to try different ear piece to find what fits for you (takes me a day or two). The sound quality (deep base) rivals any wired headset and there is no 'wearing' fatigue like with other headphones. Most other headphones, I have to max out the volume, you won't have to with this one unless you want to go deaf. As an Electronic Engineer, I am quite impressed with how small the battery is for the 8 hrs of play time. The weight to battery life ratio is quite amazing.
    I have iPhone 4S with iOS 6.0.1 and I have to DISABLE WIFI so that the music doesn't cutout for a second every so often. This is iOS 6 WiFi, BlueTooth problem and not the headphone's (have similar problem with Wireless Beats also). Google iOS 6 Bluetooth (or Wifi) problems for yourself and see. Come on! Apple you have got to fix this problem or this can turn to the 'iMap' fiasco I can see it now 'iPhone, iPad are great if you don't want to use BlueTooth features). Wireless Beats & BlueBuds work great on Android phones with out any problem so I am certain it's not the headphones.

I had to replace them a week after i bought them because the first set refused to take a charge. I thought it was a fluke. Six weeks later my second set has done the same thing. I decided to google "jaybirds won't take a charge" and lo and behold there is a world of folks out there who have bought these headsets and are holding a hundred and fifty dollar pair of junk. The sound IS good but if they aren't working that isn't much of a recommendation. There appears to be a battery design flaw and no one wants to admit to that so they blame everything from the charger to improper usage to anything else that keeps them from admitting they are selling junk.

    I'd say these are the best you're going to get for bluetooth headphones - sound is really good, they're comfortable, lightweight, I'd say these are the best you're going to get for bluetooth headphones - sound is really good, they're comfortable, lightweight, and super convenient. really, amazing idea.

    i do have some issues with the design, which unfortunately detracts from the quality. one being the cable tie method in the back (they cables will eventually slide out very easily - i ended up having to tape the cables in place)

    the other thing is the way the earplugs slide on to the unit. they pop off. the little ear shield part as well, there is nothing to actually hold it on aside from the friction of the rubber and plastic, so they will eventually fall off and you lose them. I had a pair of these for about a year, and now the left speaker has blown. these do good sound deadening, so i don't even listen to them loud.

    I also had an issue where the power button simply wouldn't work unless i plugged them in to usb for a moment. i would have them on the charger at work, i would unplug them and walk to the train, try to turn them on and nothing. as if the battery was completely drained. when this happens, if i momentarily plug them in to USB and unplug them again, they will then turn on, and last me the life of the battery. just kind of a weird glitchy thing that happened off and on.
    basically, just some quality control issues and some not-so-thought-out design choices that frustrate me.

    that said, i need a pair of bluetooth in-ear headphones, and these are the best option...so im off to buy another pair now.

    Really wanted to love these headphones. Design is very good, with ability to loop cables over your ears if you need more stability 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.
