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.

Best bluetooth headphones period.

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. …

I bought these around the first week of December '12. They sound great, the best bluetooth in ear headphones I've tried so far an I bought these around the first week of December '12. 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. …

Exceeded High Expectations
I agree, I saw the price and walked away - they decided due to the 2 week return policy to give them a try. They won't be going b I agree, I saw the price and walked away - they decided due to the 2 week return policy to give them a try. They won't be going back as I love them. This is my first set of BlueTooth buds and the sound is as good as my other buds (Bose IE2 and beloved Klipsch S4i's.) The ability to walk around with lightweight buds and no wires is liberating. Rage is good. Battery life is excellent at 7-8 hours. Recharge time is around 5 hours. Occasionally my iPad stops sending for a second or two, but it is a minor inconvenience compared to the huge benefits with these buds. I have small ears and worried about fit, but the largest tips fit tight for me for some reason. I also bought some after market tips on amazon which are even better.
Give them a try from apple and see if you like them. My guess is you will love them. …

Charger Jack Breaks and Not Totally Sweat Resistant
At the start I loved these earphones, but after a while they stopped recharging. The charger jack inside the earphones breaks easi At the start I loved these earphones, but after a while they stopped recharging. The charger jack inside the earphones breaks easily. I had to return the earphones and got a new pair on the mail. When I started using the new pair, I went for a run and sweat got inside the remote control. Somehow, without me realising the earphones activated Siri and made 9 phone calls to a friend of mine. I had to do a bit of explaining. So, yeah. I would never recommend anyone to get a pair of these. I would return mine if I could. …

The price made me hesitate but decided to go with it since they were returnable. The small buds and ear pieces fit my ears very we The price made me hesitate but decided to go with it since they were returnable. The small buds and ear pieces fit my ears very well, more importantly securely. I put my iPhone into gym bag & leave it on the ground while working out on different machines without any loss of connectivity. Very important. Like the idea of having the headphones in either under-ear or over ear configurations. Only used under ear though so far. Phone calls have been excellent without having to move the mic to my mouth. Have noticed that on occasion, there'll be breaks in feed but have not decided who is at fault there. They're momentary & not too distracting so far. Battery life is excellent. Recharging easy. Cord appears rugged. Time will tell there. Audio quality is great. I'm no audiophile. Longevity is a problem with me. I'm rough on them. But I figure that it will save my iPhone from me flinging it on the ground when I entangle the cords. Highly recommend these headphones if you can afford them …
