    Well-Designed!

    • Written by from TORONTO

    Just replaced my Plantronics wireless earbuds & these are better in every way. The volume is loud, the sound quality is excellent, the fit is secure, the cable connecting the earbuds comes with clips to shorten it. Went for a run and these stayed securely in place the whole time. The BlueBuds even come with a nice case! They are pricey but definitely the best I've used.

    Love the sound and the lack of a cord

    • Written by from Falls Church

    First Bluetooth headphones I've used and I'm impressed. They sound great and I love not having the tether to my iPhone, iPad, or Mac (I use them on all three). I've gotten 5 hours of continuous use out of them and they recharge quickly enough for me.

    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.

    Amazing! Just make sure you READ directions.

    These are hands down the best bluetooth buds I have tried and I have tried just about every pair out there.

    These are NOT for everyone and may take some time to properly fit but when you do, it is well worth it. There are multiple ways to wear them and fit them depending on your usage. All of this is easily available on their website.

    At first the ear fittings may be a bit uncomfortable if you use the optional ear pieces , the rubber is a bit stiff at first but loosens up as it fits to your ear.

    Make sure that you use the bud size that creates a snug fit, if you use one too small it will lose most of the bass effect and fit looser.

    Yes there are other earbuds with better fit and sound, but they are not wireless bluetooth so don't expect it to sound like a pair of Beats Studio be realistic.

    I use these primarily for working out, running and cycling/skateboarding. I use them everyday and they have outlasted and performed all others. 4 of my gym friends have bought them and all agree that there is no comparison.

    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.

    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!

    Great Product. Excellent Customer Service

    • Written by from Toronto

    I've had my BlueBuds X for a year now and I use them everyday. I run with them, I sweat all over them and I haven't had any problems at all. They are comfortable, sound great and perform as indicated. Love the convenience of changing songs/accepting calls/adjusting volume with the remote. I recently lost one of the ear tips and JayBird customer service replaced them for free THE NEXT DAY to Canada. Great product - great service.

    Worthy.

    • Written by from Prescott

    Battery lasts longer than my 9-to-5; controls are slightly incongruous with standard EarPods - to skip to the next song you hold the volume up button for two seconds, which can be a long time if you need your hands; the wrap-around option is comfortable and low-profile; not perfect at noise isolation, but did make a recent fire-alarm test infinitely more bearable; sound quality is on-par with any commercial headphones you want to compare; connection is excellent - I've been >40ft away from source and still had distortion-free audio.

    1st really usable bluetooth headsets

    • Written by from Sarasota

    Tried many bluetooth headsets over the last several years. Always had many problems to make them unusable, such as connecting, poor battery life, uncomfortable, etc. These ones are perfect. I just put them on, turn them on and they work every time. Used for wide variety of exercises. Highly recommend.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Best Bluetooth headphones

    • Written by from Toronto

    These are my fifth (!) pair of Bluetooth headphones and my 3rd pair for sports activities. These are *by far* the best Bluetooth headphones I've used for running. Unlike most sub-compact pairs of Bluetooth headphones - they do not experience annoying signal dropouts if your transmitting device is not within perfect line of sight. The sound quality is almost identical to regular sports in-ear headphones. Battery life is good - about three hours for me. I recharge after every use - so far no problems with shortened battery life. I use with the iPod Nano and the iPad. My only quibble is that the little ear support braces fall off easily when removing the headphones. You have to remove the earphones carefully so as not to lose them.

    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.

    The price to pay for freedom

    • Written by from Watertown

    After getting an iPhone 5 and having to deal with the (misplaced) headphone jack on the bottom always getting in the way, I couldn't take it any longer so I looked for a wireless headset. I came across these and was shocked by the price, but realized it was a small price to pay to not deal with that cord getting tangled up and yanked on all the time.

    At first I was impressed with the sound, the weight, size, but the ear buds didn't fit well and it was impossible to get a good seal without them falling out all the time. I was about it call it quits on these, when I found some after market earphone tips from a company called Comply. Not only did the new tips make these fit properly and keep the headphone from slipping out all the time, they improved the sound quality significantly as well as improved the isolation. If you can afford these, they are well worth the price, but some aftermarket earphone tips are a must to make these shine.

    Also, they battery life is great, and they work really well for making phone calls.

    BlueBuds X

    • Written by from Houston

    I bought these headphones mostly for the gym, however little did I know that they would become my go-to pair for everything. The bluetooth works well, the sound quality is great, the bass is not too heavy so you can turn up the volume without getting a headache. The battery level indicator on my iPhone 5 is awesome (my bro wishes he had that feature on his bluetooth Beats) and they last around 6hrs with a full charge, like 3 gym sessions for me.

    If you want these for the gym: There are clamps you can put on that make the headphones perfect for runs and very movement-heavy exercises. I sweat a lot and have had these for 4 months and theyre like new!

    If you want them for everyday use: I have mine connected to my iPad and MacBook Pro all the time and they work just fine, connecting them is not hard at all. Being a college student, I use them during walks and I love that they dont have cords.

    Probably one of my all time best purchases!
