    Sound great with a little mod

    • Written by David G from Rochester

    I bought these after my original AirPods started to die about 3 months before apple launched the “new” AirPods. I am glad I did not wait for the AirPods as the new upgrade was not really much of an upgrade. I got these headphones because they have a 14 hour battery life which means I am not charging them twice a day like my old air pods, I expect the batteries will last at least twice as long as my AirPods which began requiring 3-4 charges a day at just shy of 2 years old.

    Sound was another reason. These headphones sound much better than AirPods. Aftter a simple modification of the silicone sleeve that came with these headphones, I was able to add some foam comply tips which keep this locked in place and increase sound isolation There was the added bonus of increased bass and clarity with this mod.

    Now for the issues. The charging cord for these is a VERY short proprietary cable that you can only get from Jaybird, should you lose yours, it will be an issue. I was going to buy an extra charging cord so I could leave one at the office, but they are currently out of stock! Really?!! Hard to believe. The only other issues I have is that apple does not sell these in black, an the nice braided cable In gray gets dirty quickly. The “case” is also a little underwhelming for a $160 pair of headphones, just a nylon pouch, which I doubt offers much protection if you are going to throw it in your bag with all your other gear.

    If i always basing my rating on sound and battery life, these would get 5 stars. I just hope that the cable does not fail within a year, or I will be looking to go back to a truly wireless earbud.

    Headphones

    • Written by Betsy C from Concord

    I have had mine for less than a month. They are now causing my music to fast forward and if you are wondering it’s not my phone or the music app I am using. The sound quality is good. You can customize it which is really nice. The headphones only connect to one device and you have to go thru the setting to change it. The noise canceling is non existent but that is expected as it is advertised as noise canceling. At times the fit can be uncomfortable when wearing for prolonged periods of time

    Not for people with a laptop and phone

    • Written by Juan C from Jersey City

    These headphone can not connect to more than one device at a time. That means that if you listen to music in you computer and get a call on your phone you won’t be able to switch or even hear the call. Also having to go to your iPhone setting every time you want to reconnect is a huge pain. Lastly there is no option to use the comply tips. In the other hand the battery life is amazing.
