    • Written by from Jerusalem

    I wanted to buy some "quality" bluetooth headphones for my daily run ... such disappointed, I used them for 1 month and they just stopped working ... so my recommendation ... don't buy them .... ERROR ERROR I decided to keep running with something cheaper ... at least if they ruined I won't regret about the price I paid !

    Great Headphones but not with Heart Rate Monitor

    • Written by from Southlake

    These headphones are great. The sound quality is good, they stay in your ear and you don't have to deal with a cord flopping around while you're working out.

    However, as a sport headphone, I would expect them to simultaneously work while wearing a heart rate monitor. They don't. I have a Polar H7 and an iPhone and after contacting both Apple and Jaybird, I learned that the iPhone iOS does not allow headphones to be used at the same time as other Bluetooth devices. You will see reviews that say they should work together because they have different protocols, however, they don't. You can use a keyboard and mouse together or headphones and a keyboard together but if you're using an iPhone as your smartphone, you can't simultaneously use headphones and a heart rate monitor. For anyone who runs, bikes or works out with a heart rate monitor and simultaneously wants to listen to music, you're out of luck if you own an iPhone. I hear you'd have more success with an Android or other smartphone but I've been using Apple products for over 20+ years so I'm unsure.

    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.

    Jaybird

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    I bought these earplugs for $170 and used them without any problem for one week. The left earplug would quit after about 30 minutes while running which was aggravating. After one month the earphones would go directly to green when plugged in to charge and never accept a charge. Of course I did not bring the receipt with me while traveling in the Mid East so in the trash they will go! What a shame as they seemed like a good idea and looked like they were quality, but alas; they are just junk. Save your money and get a proven product. I gave it one star as zero stars is not an option

    Worse fitting design ever

    • Written by from Chicago

    I bought these to replace a set of motorola blutooth headphones that I used for working out and running. They were great. Lasted a long time. These however don't fit in my ears. They come with different fittings. Tried them all wearing them the different styles. They keep slipping out of my ears while working out. Biggest waist of $170 ever spent. If planning on wearing these and working out. Don't waist your money.

    Two pairs stopped working

    • Written by from Mission

    First pair stopped working because of sweat damage. Just recently the second pair died for no reason. Hard to get a good fit for premium sound . Support is excellent though.

    Poor Bass, Poor Fit, terrible value

    • Written by from Toronto

    I don't know whats wrong with people here, when you write reviews dont write your personal problems just explain what people want to know,

    I have no idea why people are saying these headphones have great sound quality, unless you just listen to Bieber style music, but the truth is, if your preference of music is something that requires clean, proper bass (like Rock, Techno, any electornic music) then these are very poor and disappointing. when you charge them fully, the quality gets only SLIGHTLY better

    the fit, sure it stays in after you spend hours finding the right way of shoving it down there, but it feels very weird and uncomfortable, even if it doesnt fall out, it feels like its gona!

    I bought these today and they're going back tomorrow, I now know how amazing my beats in ear headphones are (for sports) which apple store sells them also, they have great quality, AMAZING FIT (they dont fall out while Im kick boxing) the only downside is its not wireless :( apart from that, they are PERFECT

    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.

    Some shortcomings

    • Written by from VANCOUVER

    Pros: The sound quality was good. I found that the earbuds stayed in place well when running. The voice prompts are a nice touch.

    Cons: I had to return the JayBird BlueBuds X Premium Bluetooth Headphones because:
    1. The control does not support the iPhone Music App functions for fast forward (press center button twice and hold) and rewind (press center button three times and hold) like the Apple EarPods do. This was confirmed by JayBird support. I find these functions critical if listening to audio books, interviews, etc.
    2. The earbuds do not block outside noise very well, but I don’t know if any earbuds can do this well.

    Don't buy if you sweat

    • Written by from Centennial

    Sound quality - great
    Build - great
    controls - adequate
    fit- pathetic - worst ever easily. The hydrophobic nature of the earbuds pushes them out of your ears. Running along while it's cold until you sweat no problem - sweating they won't stay in place for 10 strides.
    Value - poor

    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.

    Save Your Money

    • Written by from 中央区

    When I placed my order with JayBird, I had to wait few weeks for my headset because there ere some issues with moisture in the ear buds due sweating. I was told that the new ones will have nano treatment. I only use the headset for phone calls listening to news and Music. It worked fine for couple of months, and now less than 30 seconds after I connect it to my Galaxy Note 3 it disconnect automatically. then I have to press the middle button to turn off the headset then turn it back on again, sort of reset, the same thing happens again and after three or four sometimes endless reconnects, it stays connected for say 20 minutes, and all of a sudden it announces that it is redialing, which sometimes caused me a lot of embarrassment. I e-mailed Jay Bird with my problem, No reply.
    The one star is for the case only, stay away save your money.

    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.

    Jaybird bluebuds X premium bluetooth headphones are a dud

    • Written by from LAFAYETTE

    I can't speak highly of these wireless earbuds. I found it very difficult to get the earbuds to fit properly in my ear. The earbud unit is large and sticks out awkwardly. Worse yet, the battery lasted barely 2 hrs each time I used it. Bought them to ski with and hear tunes. Got a dud. I don't recommend them. Will wait next time until Bose comes out with wireless earbuds.

    Unbiased review

    • Written by from Newport

    I have tried various headphones, and I love bose, no doubt the absolute best in sound quality and performance. However, I came across these at my local Navy Exchange so i took the risk, it was between these and the bose Sie2 green headphones. The primary factor I went for these was due to the freedom it provides. I am an avid runner, last month just under 150 miles, one of my biggest frustrations was always messing with my headphone cord. I have an iPhone 5 and a case for my arm, after running for a while the headphones would pull, or just become frustrating. These eliminate that problem. There are many reviews that complain about sound quality, however read the directions, they are very truthful. They tell you you may lose the bass in the headphones, and you will, the way you fix that is changing your bud. Amazingly, when you do this they sound great. The battery life so far is great, I have pushed it to 2 and a half hours of running and battery still showed 3 quarter strength on my phone, no complaints there. They stay secure when fitted properly, and they will fall out or lose quality if they are not fitted properly. If I found bluetooth bose headphones I still will go for them, however there is absolutely nothing wrong with these.

    Amazing! Just make sure you READ directions.

    • Written by from phoenix

    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.

    NOT WORTH IT. THEY DON'T LAST...

    • Written by from san Jose

    I bought those headphones about 4 months ago and used them with great pleasure for about 3 months, when all of a sudden the battery lasted for only for 25 minutes (with full charge) then 15 minutes....then 5 minutes....now they will not even turn on. Totally disappointed by this investment. Not fair...sorry! But while I used them they were awesome - delivering the best music experience cordless...perhaps an update is needed

    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.
