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.

    Sweat-proof

    The BlueBuds X headphones come with a lifetime warranty against sweat and are the official training headphones of USA Triathlon.

    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.

    I must own 30 sets of headphones. For running i've tried everything but i HATE the cord tangle that goes with all of them. i tri I must own 30 sets of 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.

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.

    I see alot of bad reviews which i do understand if your having issues with craftsmanship but with fit everyone is different so her I see alot of bad reviews which i do understand if your having issues with craftsmanship but with fit everyone is different so here is my .02. First off my use for them is at work. I am a heavy equipment mechanic. I repair machines that some call earth movers. Ok my average work day is 12 hours a day and i work in Houston Tx so were talking 100 degrees alot so needless to say alot of sweat with no problems with my Jaybirds. As for fit it took some trial and error but now i have the perfect combo and they fit and feel great. Ok on sound. I think the only people that give bad reviews on the sound are the people that cant get them to fit right cause for me the sound is wonderful. Just as good if not better then my wired powerbeats that these replaced. Bass beats wonderful, perfectly clear even at full blast which is where they always there. And to the skeptics that think its what im listening to dont have alot of bass, i will tell you that 90% of the time im listening to SHRILLEX and to those that know SHRILLEX they know he can beat the drums out of your ears. Im jaming to his new recess album right now. On the buttons i have no complaints. I love being able to connect to SIRI with my headphones. That was a huge selling point for me. Bottom line for me these headphones are top dog for wireless earbuds. I came to this conclusion after returning the motorola s11, powerbeats 2, and the back beats pro all in the last week to best buy before finally falling for the Jaybirds. Hope this review helps someone. My opinion these head phones are wonderful.

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
