Jaybird Bluebuds X- Wireless Handsfree Bluetooth Headphones

In this day and age everbody seems to carrying an MP3 player of some sort. Walking up the street we see people hunting for their players to change tracks or fiddling with their headphones, tucking them down their top or into their jacket or even pointlessly flapping around in front of their chest, we see runners accidently yanking out earphones during a push to break through the wall! Why live in the dark when you could live in the light, with Jaybird Bluebuds X, you are given a new opportunity, the opportunity to be free from wires!

Shift Premium Bluetooth Audio

BlueBuds X rewrites the rules of Bluetooth audio, delivering outstanding performance that rivals the very best in mainstream wired headphones.Traditionally when sound is compressed on a phone or music player,sent through the air by Bluetooth connection, and decompressed by the Bluetooth headphones, there is a substantial amount of packet loss. It means your music comes through lacking some soul, lacking some punch, and with a certain amount of static-like white noise.Through perfecting a custom implementation of the native Bluetooth SBC codec, which we call Shift™, we deliver a level of purity and sound that rivals and challenges the very best in wired headphones.

A great feature of Shift™ is that it's pair and play, meaning, nothing special is required on your phone or music device, just standard Bluetooth, Shift™ takes care of the rest.With the SHIFT platform to develop on, we have invested into the very best in speaker technology. Additionally, sound performance tuning includes the smallest details like housing materials, wall thicknesses and even the glues used around the speaker. All these variables have been taken into account when developing BlueBuds X.We've spent considerable time in the studio, doing extensive sound matching, to bring out the right levels and the quality of sound the recording artists intend for you to hear. No other Bluetooth buds deliver this level of audio performance, and you'll find BlueBuds X sounds as good, and likely better, than any other wired headphones you've ever heard. You're going to love listening to your new BlueBuds X headphones.We've studied the impact of vocals on the ear over extended listening periods, and observed a very interesting phenomenon that even wired headphones today are not addressing. Did you know all in-ear headphones (wired or wireless) create white noise? Both the speaker diaphragm and your ear canal have their own impedance or resonance frequency. If they don't match precisely, they create a mirroring effect resulting in white noise feedback, noticeable as harsh sounds in the vocal area. This results in listener fatigue. Our on-board filtering system, called, PureSound™ filters out and eliminates the white noise, elivering a clean audio experience, offering hours of pure enjoyment.

SWEAT PROOF, Lifetime waranty against sweat damage!

The guys and gals at JayBird are not a group of engineers confined to computer screens under fluorescent lights. they're actually athletes with a passion, a passion for getting products right, creating a product designed to have a lifetime sweat proof warranty!

SIGNAL PLUS, For Skip Free Music

Use your music device left/right side, above/below waist, it doesn't matter with SignalPlus™. Considerable innovation has gone into SignalPlus™, the ability to run and play sports outdoors while using your music device anywhere on your body without the traditional limitations of your body getting between the devices and blocking signal. Even put your phone/music device in a bag at the gym and workout at a good distance without signal droppage. We're confident you'll be impressed.

JENNA Voice Prompts

Having voice on board makes for a great user experience. With voice prompts, getting to your first track is so smooth and simple. Put your headphones on, hold the power button and Jenna takes over saying "power on", then "headphones connected". Push play and your music begins. Jenna also helps with pairing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great product, but don't buy it yet! 12 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought these headphones on the 4th January 2013... used them 3 times in the gym and they were fantastic. By the 11th January they died completely. At my last use in the gym they were doing weird things like re-dialing, skipping tracks, lowering volume, and random powering off. When I got home the pairing indication was flashing but would not pair with my phone. I managed to repair it after telling my iPhone to forget the device, however after that they powered off and just won't come back on again. Basically dead after 7 days of use.

I did some scowering on the internet and found that this has happened to quite a few people, and the main cause appears to be that the little control box on the side doesn't like sweat. Jaybird make a big deal about how all of their stuff is finely engineered and sweat proof and they even go as far as to give a lifetime warranty against sweat. Apparently the newer versions are being treated with some kind of sweat repellent to combat this problem. I have contacted Jaybird about troubleshooting the device and/or maybe getting a replacement with this new repellent. I'll update when I know what's going on!

For now, I would recommend that people refrain from purchasing this product until it has been updated to actually be sweat-proof!!! If it helps, I had a pair of Jaybird Freedoms (1st gen) and they saw me through a whole year of running and various endurance events, they were fantastic.

Update: 14th January 2013
Ok, quick update. I contacted Jaybird yesterday and they knew exactly what the problem was. I spoke to a guy called "Pablo" on their live chat and he instructed me to send him my Amazon receipt, at which point he said "send it to me and I'll handle the rest".

5.0 out of 5 stars bud-u-like 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
Having just bought some Sony on ears to replace my lost in ear beats and being very disappointed with them I decided to punt for these bad boys. Was I surprised - Easily surpassing the Beats in terms of sound quality and much lighter. With a huge blue tooth range and the ridiculous ease of moving devices makes for the best headphones I have owned to date. My iPhone even shows the battery life left.

The all plastic lightness may put off some in the heavy is quality camp but I found it refreshing and sensible considering what they are designed for. Do you really want to run with milled aluminum and steel weights in your ear. Fitting is easy and interesting; having tried every combination of the rubber "grips" and buds eventually I opted for the largest bud and the smallest "grip" this gave a nice fit. I have been on several runs with these and they have excelled.

If the thought of a dangling cable puts you off then they can be warn as a head band in a reverse fitting which looks cool too.

Great product would recommend.

Here's a review after 12 weeks intensive use - 5-7 hours a day.

These are great - but you need to give them a chance - here's why...

They sell well on the Apple store but are much cheaper here - and you can use your savings for the purchase of some Comply TSX-500 Comfort PLUS Earphone tips with Wax Guard in medium. If you don't, you'll be ripping them out of your ears in no time - WHY OH WHY DO SUPPLIERS OF EXPENSIVE EARPHONES COMPROMISE ON TIPS?!

I've used just one set of tips for 12 weeks - exercising for an hour most mornings (either a peak interval or else a 10k run) and they don't move. I also then use them for 4-6 hours additionally each day to listen to my mac and/or iPhone (I don't see so use them to listen to stuff). The guy on here who got through 3 sets in a week must have been chewing them! Yes, the Comply tips are tough to get on and you wonder whether the earpiece will break its so tight - but mine are fine.

Then there's the microphone / remote control feature. Basically, these are completely useless for making calls as nobody can hear you - the microphone technology feels very old with no noise cancellation etc. Again, why bother putting such a poor mic into such a good pair of buds?!

And the volume control is SOOO annoying because it cancels sound to BEEP with each press, meaning you lose a few seconds each time you press - nightmare for listening to emails or an audiobook. Again, come on guys - did any real people actually test these?

Like any other bluetooth system with a cable between the buds, you will get a bit of noise from the cable hitting your next etc - suck it up and ignore it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far a 5 star product 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought these for the gym, for use with my computer and as a headset for my phone. I was quite sceptical about them as I'd seen some mixed reviews.

For my purposes they are excellent. Good enough sound quality; at least as good as the Shure wired in ears headphones that these replace. I bought the Comply Tx-500 Isolation tips as I couldn't see myself fiddling around with the system they come with and this combination is excellent. I wear these loose round the back of my neck. No need to go over the ear.

The bluetooth range is very very good and I have had no drop outs so far. (I use it with an HTC one a Dell laptop and an ipod classic with bluetooth adaptor.)

There is not much to complain about. If I had to say anything negative it would be that when turning the volume up or down using the headset there is a brief interruption of play so I tend to use the source controlls instead.
