    Not sweatproof...

    • Written by from Mission Viejo

    Wore these for running for two weeks, first failure after 7 runs - just stops playing, as though the control has been activated (NOT A BATTERY PROBLEM). Doesn't begin working properly again until dried out. Gave it 5 more runs, had the same issue runs 11 & 12. They remain in-ear as advertised, and battery life is good (pluses). Even tried using the supplied ties to keep the controller from touching me, but it still failed, though only marginally wet with sweat. If they were sweatproof, I would have kept them. Ended up returning them. Great idea, and if truly sweatproof, I would still have them. Probably deserves more stars for fit & sound, however, that doesn't count if they just shut off.

    A Dream Come True

    • Written by from Denver

    I've dreamed of headphones like this for years!! I'm a klutzy audiophile, and the cord on my headphones has always driven me nuts. I have the beats over-ear Bluetooth headphones as well, but these are much better for daily use. I bought them about 6 months ago, I wear them for nearly eight hours a day, and I've never for a moment been disappointed!

    The sound quality is wonderful, and the design is comfortable! These do not disappoint!

    I should add that I use these in the following settings: in the gym, running/walking outside, in the office, at home (especially while cooking and cleaning), under my helmet while riding my scooter. I've also synced them to a variety of devices including my iPad, iPad mini, iPhone 5, and MacBook Air. They are easy to sync, and switching between devices is simple and painless.

    I could live in these!

    • Written by from Kilauea

    I don't even say that I buy headphones anymore, I just trial them because one day with flawed phones and all I can do is give them away.

    I hate wires getting tangled when I work out, and don't even like them around my neck. I tried these in the "under ear" configuration and liked the sound and the fit, but the cable bouncing around got on my nerves... THEN I took the time to set them up over the ear and use the little clips to take out the slack and it was PERFECT!

    Great sound, solid, solid fit and no bouncing cable! Good in the rain and I can hear around them when they are turned off. Just make sure you take 5 minutes to get the little tabs tabs and ear pieces fitted properly for your ears.

    Of note, the over the ear configuration is not recommended for voice calls as the microphone is positioned behind the left ear. That is not an issue for me, but it might be for you. I love these phones and they will be my go to headset for the foreseeable future.

    Sudden Death

    • Written by from Washington

    My first ones died in a week, second pair lasted five months, third ones two months. All of them died suddenly while I was running. Gong for my fourth pair one because I can't get my money back. Costumer service have been very attentived and I haven't had problems replacing them but I am guessing they are not really sweat proof. The only reason I'm giving two stars is because of a very good costumer service and when the BlueBuds work they are awesome but unfotunately they keep dying.

    Poor Value. Sound and Fit are bad at best.

    • Written by from Salt Lake City

    Marketed highly as a headphone for the active lifestyle, I was let down across the board. Fit was intolerable even with "proper fitment". Sound quality was comparable to earbuds that came with the your 1980s pocket rocker. They have lots of outside noise penetration. Sometimes they sound like the sound is in mono. They are kinda easy to pair, but generally controls are vague.

    One high-flyin' bird

    • Written by from Van Nuys

    I've had every generation of Bluetooth buds from Jaybird. Awesome product and customer service! I have been rockin' the BBX since the day they became available and can't wait for the next generation. So excited!!! I can't believe that there are any negative reviews. Maybe I've just been very lucky or maybe people are unknowingly purchasing illegal, pirated products that are not from Jaybird. Anyway, I take care I of my gear but, I workout 4+ days a week and never workout without my buds. I put them through some punishing sessions and then follow that up with 30+ minutes in the sauna, and yes, I wear them IN THE SAUNA!!! My workouts include every type of weight training that has been invented. I stick with one for two to three months then change. I also do HIIT sprints and bleachers on my OFF days, while wearing buds. I believe in sweat! If you ain't sweatin', you ain't workin'!! All that to say, I had to return my first pair of "JB-100's" because they kept dropping signal. Got the replacement pair, free of charge, and had no other problems. Next, the "JB-200's" and no problems. Then, the "Freedom". No problems. Got the "Freedom Sprint" buds and after the first week, they just simply stopped working all off the sudden. Returned, replaced for free, no problems after that. I've had the BBX for over one year now and no problems whatsoever. So, five and a half years, two mildly inconvenient problems which were remedied immediately and great customer service...
    ... if only JAYBIRD built cars. I'm a huge fan. Thank you to everyone at jaybird!

    So So Quality, Bad Customer Service

    • Written by from Shelby Township

    the earbuds are okay. sound is good, but impossible to get them to fit properly, or stay in, because of shape of buds and rubber ear insert. what's more, when my charging cord went bad in the first two months, they would not replace it. simply refused and told me any android charging cord would work. this was my second problem purchase from this company. they have flashy advertising, but that's basically all you're paying for. you can get a much higher quality set of earphones for the price they are charging. plus, do you want to pay for non-existent customer service?

    Good but need refinement

    • Written by from Warren

    I ended up returning these. . . Sound is quite good, but they have more bass than is true to the recording. I had to dial this down to be accurate. They use their own tone mapping. Also I found them to be very uncomfortable. They are BIG and stick out of your ear a lot more than comparable models. The Bose in-ear headphones are 10x more comfortable and use the same style of in ear retention system. The JayBird models have a much harder rubber piece that causes ear fatigue over more than 30min of use. Also to use them in the 'traditional' method vs the behind the ear is a PAIN to switch back and forth, pretty much chose one method and thats it. Takes too long to switch. Lastly PLEASE do away with the voice over on connecting, and volume controls, I know its louder when its louder, do not need a really annoying beep, also know its connected when it plays, do not need a voice to say 'connected'.

    Good sound for runs

    • Written by from Sacramento

    I walk and/or run about 10 miles per day, in often fairly hot conditions, and even with considerable persperation, these stay in the ear well. I was always snagging the wires on other earbuds with my hands while walking and with these, there's no problem. Very comfortable. Sound quality is much better than other earbuds I have tried, including the Apple product. The Bluetooth has good range, I can walk around the house and most areas still have connectivity to the iPhone. Works well for phone calls. I also use them for TV listening late at night through a Clear Sounds Bluetooth transmitter (also recomended). When you get the buds well into the ear canal, bass is very good. When running, this usually isn't possible but sound is still good nevertheless. Charge lasts about 7 hours.

    Tangle-Free Workouts

    • Written by from Airmont

    Bought these to replace a wired pair of sony sport headphones that I used for running. I was concerned about the fit in my ear, and the ability for the buds to stay in place. I am happy to report that the fit and comfortability is great. Sound quality and battery life are not a problem. Would definitely recommend this product.

    Almost perfect!

    • Written by from Seattle

    I was looking for a pair of wireless in-ear headphones for workouts and, after trying multiple brands (Denon, JBL, Motorola, Plantronics, Sony, Yurbuds), I need up returning them all. I ended up keeping these after witnessing the battery life and sound they provided over the others. Not to mention the ease of use with the iPhone and Siri worked great. That being said, I couldn't keep ANY headphones in my ears for a long period of time without my ears hurting, including the Jaybirds.

    I ended up keeping the Bluebuds though because I decided to try a pair of custom ear molds. Decibullz makes ear molds specifically for the Bluebuds for really cheap. Once I put them on, I couldn't believe just how comfortable they felt. I barely knew they were there.

    Not for everyone

    • Written by from Logan

    I had a difficult time fitting for my ears. After 3-4 hours of finding the best fit I loved them for about a week. The more I moved the harder it was to keep them in my ears. I think I might have a unique ear canal or something. I bought these because they look great and are great in theory. I returned them today ultimately because they were falling out as I was eating my lunch trying to watch a movie on my mobile device. I wish they worked out for me.

    Excellent!

    • Written by from Annapolis

    These are the best iteration of bluetooth earphones I've come across yet. The technology in these is leaps ahead of others and has come a long way in the past couple of years. Very lightweight, very unobtrusive design, great battery life (8hrs expected and it did last) and excellent sound quality. These act like any other bluetooth device, listen to music, take phone calls and hear everything in stereo.

    I have one small complaint. The earphone tips that come with this device are a silicone and do not fit well at all. Normally I use the standard medium size and usually never have trouble with foam pieces but this only comes with silicon pieces. If you search for Comply Foam Tips look for the T-500 series as these will fit these earphones. The Comply T-500s are a bit difficult to get one but they do fit and seal out sound and fit snugly. I picked up the T-500 multi-pack for $15 and now I'm good to go with workouts, cycling, etc. Very very pleased with this item.

    Needs Significant Improvement

    • Written by from Tega cay

    Sound quality is very good. However, comfort is poor and the case is useless. The rubber ear pads that fit over the speaker are not thick enough to fit snugly into the ear and protect against the hard shell that houses the speaker. Hence, they slip out, and if you jam it into your ear to get a good fit, they hurt. The case is a joke. You can't open it without long finger nails. There's nothing to grab onto to open it. Did this company not test its product before they released it to market with a $170 price tag????!!!!!!

    If they fix the ear buds and their case and send me the retrofitted stuff, I'd give it high marks.

    Great for athletes!

    • Written by from Chapel Hill

    I bought these after frustration with regular headphones shorting out after workouts. After reading several reviews on tech sites, and runner/workout sites (all highly rating them) I decided to pick them up.

    The paired easy with my phone and tablet, and after some tinkering with the ear pieces I was able to get a perfect fit. At first the bugged my ears and cause irritation but I figured out I was rotating to far forward, so after a slight turn backwards they not only stayed in but gave me 8 hours worth of comfort.

    I run at least 2 miles every morning and do Insanity at night with no issues of slipping out nor sweat causing shorts, or any other issues.

    After some getting used to...

    • Written by from Pontypool

    These headphones are excellent. In terms of sound quality, you won't find better in the bluetooth variety. Admittedly, they did take some getting used to. Worse, they took some tinkering around with to find the perfect fit. After about a week of being irritated I finally did find the perfect fit, though, and couldn't be happier. The size is perfect and doesn't look obscene. The battery life lasts an entire workday. I was surprised to find that the headphones even connect to my device (iMac) from across the room (depends on device- doesn't work as well with iPad).

    Overall the convenience of being cordless is so worth the money paid for these headphones. I hope I still feel this way about them in the year(s) to come.
