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.

    These headphones are incredible! I bought them to replace a pair of Motorola Bluetooth headphones that I bought on Amazon. I'm a These headphones are incredible! I bought them to replace a pair of Motorola Bluetooth headphones that I bought on Amazon. I'm an extremely heavy sweater and the Motorola's stopped working after only two weeks. I've had the JayBirds for almost a year and a half and they're still going strong!

    First, they almost never fall out of your ear. I do a lot of Crossfit and the only time they start to come loose is when I'm jumping rope for an extended period of time. The "waffles" really help hold them in place.

    Next, they stand up to excessive sweat extremely well. I'm in the Army and was deployed to the Middle East for the last eight months, through the summer months when the average temperature was over 120 degrees. And through that heat and my sweat, these headphones still work with zero issues.

    They also work okay across a gym. I can set my iPhone down next to a rack and walk around the gym pretty freely without losing quality or the connection.

    The only reason that I gave them four stars and not five is because there isn't a battery indicator on them. So you may end up losing music in the middle of your workout due to the battery dying. But honestly, that's more my problem than the headphones - I could have charged them every three or four days regardless of whether or not they needed to be charged.

    I would definitely recommend these to someone looking for quality Bluetooth headphones.

For running i've tried everything but i HATE the cord tangle that goes with all of them. i tried a few bluetooth versions but they were not stable or didn't stay in the ear or gave pretty poor sound. These guys seemed to have nailed it!

    Works well. Fits well (make sure you experiment to get the tips and the wings just right for you). It makes a big difference in the amount of sound that goes in (especially during activity).

    Pleasantly surprised with them. Well done Jaybird! They took an extra year to come out but overall they seem well worth it.

    I had 2 S9s and 2 S10HDs both died due to sweat. I HATE, HATE Wired headphone because I primarily use my headphone during workout I had 2 S9s and 2 S10HDs both died due to sweat. I HATE, HATE Wired headphone because I primarily use my headphone during workout sessions. This BlueBuds X is by far has the best sound, comfort & battery life. You have to try different ear piece to find what fits for you (takes me a day or two). The sound quality (deep base) rivals any wired headset and there is no 'wearing' fatigue like with other headphones. Most other headphones, I have to max out the volume, you won't have to with this one unless you want to go deaf. As an Electronic Engineer, I am quite impressed with how small the battery is for the 8 hrs of play time. The weight to battery life ratio is quite amazing.
    I have iPhone 4S with iOS 6.0.1 and I have to DISABLE WIFI so that the music doesn't cutout for a second every so often. This is iOS 6 WiFi, BlueTooth problem and not the headphone's (have similar problem with Wireless Beats also). Google iOS 6 Bluetooth (or Wifi) problems for yourself and see. Come on! Apple you have got to fix this problem or this can turn to the 'iMap' fiasco I can see it now 'iPhone, iPad are great if you don't want to use BlueTooth features). Wireless Beats & BlueBuds work great on Android phones with out any problem so I am certain it's not the headphones.

    my son kept taking my Bose sport headphones to use them, and eventaully I knew they are gone.
    i bough those from the bridge water my son kept taking my Bose sport headphones to use them, and eventaully I knew they are gone.
    i bough those from the bridge water apple store.
    after much reading and you tube instruction viewing , i finally got them customized to my liking.
    the fit is great and comfy.sounds fantastic. and the battery indicator on the phone is great plus.
    one charge will get me 7-10 day worth of running. FYI , I run daily 45 minutes.
    they are rated sweat resistant which worked great as i sweat a lot.
    the only really issue I dealt with , is that the instructions were not very helpful in explaining above and under head fit.
    briefly , those are expensive but worth the money blue tooth fitness headphone

The freedom to move my head and look around while running; without the continuous pulling on my ear-buds was far more appealing then I thought it would be. The sound quality was better then my Boss headphones. The battery life was impressive and connectivity to my phone was flawless.

    I was very happy with my purchase for just shy of 6 weeks or more specifically 28 runs. Near the end of my 28th run my headphones cut out only being mid way through their charge cycle. When I plugged them in to charge the LED turned on for a minute or so, and then turned off never to be seen again.

    I called Jay Bird support and went through the troubleshooting process, which ultimately confirmed that my buds had died. Being passed through to the RMA process after purchase confirmation, I was told that I would need to send my dead buds back, and once received a replacement product would be sent to me.

    Here is my synopsis. The Blue Bird headphones are a great product in design and functionality. With a $200 plus dollar price tag though, Jay Bird is placing themselves in the premium product category. The fact that my premium product died in such a short time period is disappointing but could be a one-off issue.

    The fact that I have to pay out of pocket to return my product to California, wait to have it received and processed and them wait again to have my replacement sent back is certainly not what I would quantify as a premium product RMA process.

    I can’t help but feel that if this product line failed infrequently, a more customer service friendly RMA process would be in place.
