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

JayBird Bluetooth Headphones
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. …

Very well done
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. …

Best BlueTooth Headphone....ever!
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 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
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 proble 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. …

Best Bluetooth Headset available!
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 B 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! …
