    Best In-Ear Bluetooth headphones

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    Amazing battery life (longer than Powerbeats2)!! I've never owned a nice pair (over $100) of wired headphones but decided if I was going Bluetooth that I would pay the extra price and man was it worth it! These headphones have the best sound Ive ever experienced in any headphone. Incredible bass. The bluetooth range is crazy good, I can walk around my house and there is no cutting out.
    I do recommend using Comply tips with these and not the tips provided. The comply tips will make these the best headphones youve ever owned. Not more problems with fit or buds slipping out!! (You can buy those tips from Jaybird's site)

    Buy these! You wont regret it

    Could Be Better

    • Written by from Redwood City

    The Bluetooth connectivity is the best part of this earphone. The sound quality is decent at this price level. The worst is the fit on ears. It is simply uncomfortable and unsecured during a run or moderately intense workout and above. JayBird must do better on fit and comfort for me to use this again. Going back to my wire Shure earphones.

    Stopped powering on after 2 months

    • Written by from Vidor

    These bluetooth headphones would get a 5 star review if the had not stopped working. I used them at least 5 times a week since I purchased them and they were great....until I took them off charge for a work out and they would not turn on. You know how expensive these bluetooth headphones are and when you spend the money you expect to get more than two months out of them. Very disappointed about this and will not be purchasing this brand again due to this issue.

    Works great until it fails, battery, charging issue.

    • Written by from Madison

    These headphones have a fatal flaw. Great sound, etc, but after a few months it will not charge. The light immediately goes from red (charging) to green (fully charged) in a matter of seconds. The blue buds will then refuse to power on. What a #FAIL. By the looks of it, this is a faulty product since so many have had the same issue.

    Amazing, but...

    • Written by from GULF BREEZE

    These amazing headphones, for the first months of owning them, worked amazingly, offering the advertised approximation of a 10 meter range via bluetooth connectivity. The only problem I had with these was when I lost my larger pair of earbuds, there was not ant nearby store that sold a fitting pair. The major downside of these earbuds is that the battery has stopped working for me, the light will show green after hours of charging through my PC and they will power on, but about several seconds into my time, they die, and the process just repeats and I've had no luck with. If not for my battery problems, I'd still be advertising these to everyone I know. Perfect base, clarity, no delay, very flexible, no tangle, sweat resistance (assuming that didn't damage them), and overall just very nice and clean headphones.

    What I wanted in an earbud product R. Review (PART 1)

    • Written by from Naperville

    The JayBirds BlueBuds X Premium Bluetooth Headphones are quite surprising. But of course here is my expeirence with them and some personal opinion advice.
    (NOTE:) : Advice at the bottom

    Sound/: 8.2/10 The bass was very surprising. The bass (depending on the audio file uploaded by the artist) was typically "punchy". meaning the distortion effect or static effects only came in if an individual uploaded the audio file on other sites instead of its original audio form (Sounds good on sites like "Itunes" or "Rapsody" where the artist shines at getting the original sound file to play for listeners to hear at full potential. The bass was so crisp that the sometimes it created an echo. This generally applies to other aspects(Can't give a detailed review because of 300 word limit)

    Design: The model just happens to fit in my ear after customizing it(parts come with earbuds watch video for idea)

    Durability: Bought these 2 weeks ago (Will give review later as of 03/06/015)

    Advice: Wouldn't recommend for plenty of reasons, get "Headphones" not these "Earbuds" if you like a general fit. Buy other brands/models these block out sound around you. Lastly READ READ READ/Research, may post video on YT.

    Best headphones I've had, but be careful how you recharge it.

    • Written by from GREENBRAE

    I really like these headphones. It's great not having to untangle a cord, the sound is very good, and the distance you can range from the phone while maintaining clear reception is large +/-10 meters (as advertised). The only problem I've had is the battery life, but I learned that you should not recharge the unit using a wall socket or a car lighter (thru a USB adapter) because the charge is too strong. That will burn out the battery. It's best to only recharge it with a computer.

    Good sound...very poor battery lifespan

    • Written by from NEW HAVEN

    I have had three pair of JayBird. The last time I tried the premium BlueBuds with better hopes. Same problem...They worked very well for two months. Then it stopped holding any battery charge. I had to return them.

    Don't be misled by the crafty packaging....

    • Written by from Dallas

    I find it hard to believe that a group of well educated designers/engineers could have ever signed off on this design. I'll just list the cons. Bulky buds don't stay in your ears. Cheap feel to buds. They supply a plethora of different fitting pieces because they know they aren't going to fit in the first place. Way to much extra cord. They provide a cheap clip type item that you have to wind the wire up in to keep it from dangling on the back of your neck. I've purchased two sets of BlueBuds hoping the design would improve and neither set made it past 24 hours.

    I'm unbiased towards brands and I just have to tell anyone considering these buds.......if your serious about music or sports,....go with the Plantronics BackBeat Fit. You'll be much happier.

    Power on / charging issues

    • Written by from Singapore

    I have had the same problem with power as others have highlighted before.
    Essentially you cannot turn on the earphones even after charging them. If you connect a USB cable for about two seconds, and power on the earphones immediately, they can power on and will carry on as long as there is something playing. If you pause for even 5 seconds, they stop working and power down. You cannot turn them on until you insert some USB cable again.

    It is mysterious - either the battery has not charged but it think it is fully charged. Or the battery is charged but the device does not recognize it and therefore does not turn on.

    JayBird customer service advised me to reset the device. That seemed to help but was deceptive. Within a week it was back to the old state.

    Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? Apart from this, the earphones are fantastic but this is a complete dealbreaker since they simply do not power on / work.

    Dead after 3 months

    • Written by from sao paulo

    I bought the JayBird BlueBuds in november/2014 at the Apple Store in Orlando. It worked perfectly for 3 months. Deep bass, good sound and easy connection. I used them to workout in the gym 2 hours a day, from mondays to fridays. But, suddenly, they began to turn on and off repeatedly and I cannot use them anymore.. I do not recommend these headphones.

    Returned for Dr. Dre Beats bluetooth buds (no bass in these)

    • Written by from Grand forks

    My two complaints about Jaybirds are the lack of bass in this product, it's flat mono sounding and that is about it. The second complaint is getting your money back. I've called they're customer care dept 5 different times about a refund and get the same old run around, oh it takes us 7-10 business days to issue a refund. It's been over 10 days and I have yet to see my money back. Today the phones are down. Nothing but frustration from JayBird!

    Great product! Proper fit is difficult

    • Written by from Bolton

    Have had these for over a year now and they still work great. Never had any problems with them. Biggest concern is fitment. Its hard to make them fit properly. If they worked on redesigning the fitment they would be excellent headphones.

    Great concept, poor execution

    • Written by from Diamond Bar

    Everything POSITIVE that already has been said about these headphones is true. Great sound for Bluetooth, good fit (I used Comply S-500 Active tips and the sound quality and fit is noticeably better than the stock silicone) and perfect for getting in the groove when training. Having used wired sets all my life up to this point, it's amazing how quickly the body and mind adapt to the immersion of the "personal soundtrack" in your head without the tangible snap back to reality of wires getting caught on equipment or appendages.

    Now onto the bad. I've experienced the power issues that many here have reported, with the headphones just refusing to turn on or dying in the middle of a workout. This already is my second pair, and the same problems are manifesting. Device pairing is a snap, when the device actually manages to power on. To tout something as a *rugged* premium product, only to have it fail so easily is inexcusable. I've gone back to my battle-tested Monster iSports...true wireless dependability is fiction right now as far as I'm concerned.

    Worst fitting earbuds

    They constantly fell out. Good luck trying to get them to fit.

    Would have gotten a 5 star rating...

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I purchased these earbuds on December 18th 2014. I used them in the gym and I used them outside. They stood up very well and never once fell out of my ears. I was even willing to overlook the fact that they seem to trap sweat in your ear and require quick removal and wiping half way through a workout. The best thing of all? They didn't have any lip-syncing issues AT ALL. I could watch a movie on the elliptical and never once see anything off in the timing of the audio against the video (for those who purchased PowerBeats 2, you'll know thats a big deal). But at the end of the day, the biggest issue of all is that they simply don't continue working.

    After a couple weeks they would drop the pairing. Then they would spontaneously turn off. Then they would spontaneously turn back on and try redialing my phone... over and over and over again. Then... they died. Regardless of the full charge and all the cajoling I tried, these babies were dead less than a month into owning them.

    According to the warranty, they have a lifetime guarantee against sweat. Based on the apparent glitchy behaviour of the control buttons, I am 100% certain that perspiration is what caused this issue. I have since bought a pair of Beats Tour, but if Jaybird ever owned up to this problem and fixed it, I would definitely try them again. In the mean time... anyone would be crazy to buy these earbuds. Do your research and you will see that the Bluebud X is notorious for this problem with some users going through 3 or more replacements and dealing with more frustration than they should ever have to. At this rate, they should be paying the consumer to try them out... its redials that this issue exists and that it is so predominant. Again... I DO NOT RECOMMEND THESE EARBUDS AT THIS TIME.

    Sound quality and connecting them to a device can either be a complete breeze or an absolute nightmare. Not worth the money in my opinion. Been trying to connect them to my MacBook pro for the last hour, no success.

    sound quality that of a $35 wired headphone

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I recently purchased these for use at the gym after long envying others I have seen. I was attracted by the style and was hoping for less hype than day the Beats model. Bottom line here is that as much as I wanted to like these, I thought the overall sound quality was so poor I literally could not stand using these beyond the second day and thus have already returned them. I have a couple other wired eadbud headphones in the $80-$140 range that simply blow these away and perhaps I have been spoiled by the excellent sound.

    The JayBird's were ok for say listening to a podcast, but when I wanted to do some serious intensive cardio - I was more annoyed than anything else. I also found them a bit difficult to use in terms of say using the fast forward to skip songs. The placement was such that it was not as easy to get to or often resulted in my having to reposition the headphones far too often.

    At thsi point I do not know if my negativity on the sound quality applies to all bluetooth models currently on the market, or if these are worse than similar priced options. Unfortunately one cannot really try these out in the stores.

    For now I am just sticking to my old wired pairs.

    My Quest

    • Written by

    As an international competitor I needed to find the best earbuds on the market for what I do. I went through many pairs of workout, sweat proof, and even some other bluetooth buds before finding these. After using these for practices and workouts about 2-3 times a day (about 4-6 hours) I can say Jaybird X are the best on the market. My pair have been washed and dried, soaked in water, and dropped countless times. They still work perfectly.

    Really appreciated these buds until the battery died after about 10 months usage. Will not buy again at this price.
