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.

Eventhough it's through bluetooth, it blocks o The BlueBuds X contain the clarity and fidelity that will surprise any audiophile. Eventhough it's through bluetooth, it blocks out the white noise and delivers quality and clear sound. Because of it's secure fit, you can jam the earbuds in for great and balanced bass. My ears are smaller than average and with the right rubber bud, it stays very comfortable in the ear. It chafes a bit when i run, so i would recommend putting some vasoline along the rubber areas so it doesn't cause more chafing. The Battery life is super. It'll last longer than a plane ride from LA to NY. So you got an earphone that's great for normal listening, working out, multitasking, and traveling. All wireless.

    Probably was too jazzed up about the music quality I haven't fully tested the mic on it. I've made a few phone calls with it, but probably I haven't used that part enough to give my final verdict.

    About me: I own UE Triple Driver Headphones which are my favorite for normal listening and have used Sony MDR-7506 for recordings. I'm particular in my music and my MP3s have to at least 256kbps. If it would make sense that I have the storage space, I would only listen to FLAC files.

    I would like this to be at least 20 dollars cheaper, but still I don't regret any penny and compared to everything else I spend money on, this one actually makes sense. Actually........I would probably have paid more for these.

    Ordered these for my wife and just received in the mail today. Once you find the right fit with the ear cushion attachments these Ordered these for my wife and just received in the mail today. Once you find the right fit with the ear cushion attachments these puppies will not come off with any jumping/running/exercise and feel really comfortable. The sound is really quite amazing for bluetooth headphones with deep, rich bass. Bluetooth range is not a problem. With a lifetime warranty against damage due to sweat, I think the bluebuds are on top of the heap in its category! Tried calling a friend using the headset and call clarity was great. Nice touch with the battery indicator showing on the screen of our iPhones too.
    The only other test to determine now is how reliable the build is... Time will tell.

They sound great, the best bluetooth in ear headphones I've tried so far and I've tried a lot of them. I spend a lot of time in the gym so having no wires is important to me. An even BIGGER plus is the unit can be worn over or under ear. Over-ear is perfect for the gym while lifting weights especially for squats or any behind the neck exercise(s). I have a slight problem with them staying in my ear and I've tried all the tips that come with the unit. I always have trouble with ear buds staying in without having to give them a push or two here and there. I've noticed they are a little finicky while in the parking lot at several gyms the connection tends to go in and out but while inside the gym and else where I have not had any connection issues. I've only paired them with my iPod nano(new generation). They can be paired up to 8 devices which is another nice feature. They are very comfortable, I can't say that enough. I wish the case was a soft case but that is a minor detail.

Bluetooth doesn't transmit the highest quality audio but these do a very good job of maximizing the sound. Of course these won't be as good as wired headphones at the same price but these are great for being wireless and lightweight. Perfect for working out. Make sure you get the fit right or they won't sound good. I had to try all 3 tips twice and ended up using the small ones and putting the wires over the ears. Now they sound great.

    Not as much bass as my my wired Bose MIE2i ($150) but better mids and highs, not as clear as my Etymotic ER4P's ($300+) but much d Not as much bass as my my wired Bose MIE2i ($150) but better mids and highs, not as clear as my Etymotic ER4P's ($300+) but much deeper bass. A nice compromise between the two. Must have a good seal in the ear to get the sound these are capable of. Amazing range, I leave my 4S on my workbench and can walk around a 3000sq/ft garage full of large vehicles and you'd never know they weren't wired to my phone! They even work through concrete/steel walls (only 1 wall at a time). If anyone is having range issues YOU are doing something wrong. Great battery life for in-ear BT and they weigh next to nothing. Charging cable is horrible (too short, too stiff and its flat) but its standard micro USB so its easily substituted with something better.
