5.0 out of 5 stars Going wireless for good, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jaybird Bluebuds X Bluetooth In-Ear Earphones Midnight Black BBX (Wireless Phone Accessory)
My first bluetooth in-ears was a pair of Sony DR-BT20NX back in 2008.
An amazing product at that time but with some rough edges as maximum
bluetooth range and mic audio quality/range. Still I used them daily for 3 years
until they broke apart from excessive usage.

Finding a replacement wasn't easy but these Jaybird got my attention because
they seem to be much smaller than Plantronics BackBeat GO while having a much
better battery life. Such a win-win situation was a no-brainer for me so I ordered them.

Once I received the Jaybird Bluebuds I was impressed by the packaging and quality of
the product itself. These in-ear look premium, from the quality of the
materials (wires and control) to the clever microUSB charging location.

Pros:
-Battery life
While I was sceptical about the battery life it is really amazing how do they run for so
many hours on a single charge.

-Wireless range
Unlike other bluetooth headsets I tried, the Jaybirds really have an impressive wireless
range giving me whole house wireless coverage. SignalPlus™ as Jaybird describes really
makes a difference here.

-Sound quality (mic also)
Sound quality is good in the range of in-ear sound quality type. The mic is also good but
when I am in central London at rush time the person on the other side of the line suffers
a bit. In very noisy environments the only way is to switch to the phone's built in mic and
clever noise-cancelling systems.

Cons:
-Earbuds
Earbuds tend to pop out, specially is you are running. Since I couldn't get used to the
plastic attachments that come with the in-ears I got a pack of
"Comply Tx-500 Isolation PLUS Earphone Tips" as Amazon suggests. These foam tips
expand to fit perfectly to your ears blocking most of the external noise of the street while
fixing the Jaybirds to your ears perfectly. In many situations the noise blocking provided by
the Comply TX-500 works best than my other in-ears (Sony active noise-cancelling
MDR-NC100).

-Wire noise when running
When running the wire hits your neck making a uncomfortable noise in your ears. I haven't
found a solution for this yet but a small clip might solve not only this but the following issue.

-Very easy to lose
The first days were a nightmare. After spending £100+ in a pair of in-ears the last thing you
want is to lose them. Since they are so small they are very easy to lose when you take your
jacket as you do not even feel them. The only solution I found is to put them under the jumper
when not in use. A clip, as someone also suggests in one of these Amazon reviews, might be
the solution.
