My new daily driver. Great price, great build quality/ergonomics, good sound, battery life could be better.
24 May 2018
I was previously a user of the Shure SE425, a pretty high performance and accurate earphone. I was resistant to move from wired to wireless but I didn't want to spend a huge chunk of money on some high end wireless earphones without using any before.
I have now had the Jaybird Freedom 2 for about 4 months. At first I was initially disappointed with the sound it is still leagues better than any standard earphone (Apples Wireless Earbuds) at a similar price. It will definitely be an improvement for the standard earphone user but wont fill the gap for an audiophile. The app for these lets you set a highly custom EQ which saves the sound quality and turns them into a great pair or earbuds for casual listening. Otherwise, the ergonomics are good and they don't fall out during exercise. The battery life leaves a little to be desired at 4 hours but the little battery pack provides and additional 4 hours if you run short and cant find a USB charger.
All in all these earphones are now my daily driver and I expect to be replacing them in a year or so with similar Jaybird model that has a longer battery life.
