No Strings Attached: JayBird BlueBud X Headphones

Price: $169.99
Colors: Midnight Black, Storm White

The JayBird BlueBuds X headphone.

What It Is: 
JayBird BlueBuds X Premium Bluetooth earbuds deliver wireless music and calls coupled with superior audio performance rivaling the best in wired headphones. Plus you get a revolutionary eight-hour battery play time, patented secure sport fit, sweat proof with lifetime warranty against sweat, and the all-new X-Fit--which lets you lift the cord off your neck for the perfect active headphones.

-The first feature we were stoked about was definitely the Bluetooth technology. When we’re in the gym, or putting in some miles on our mountain bike and road bikes, wires tend to get in the way. You’re either getting it snagged on something, or trying to figure where to stuff all the excess wire. With the BlueBuds X, the only wire that exists is the one that connects the left side of the headphone to the right side. That’s it.

-Connecting the headphone to our Bluetooth device was simple.

-To accommodate everyone’s different size and shaped ears, the BlueBuds are equipped with three different sized earbud tips and ear cushions. Both are easy to install.

-There’s nothing more frustrating than headphones slipping out of your ear when you begin to perspire, but with patented secure fit system, that problem is a thing of the past. The provided ear cushions lock into your ear and provide a hold that lasts throughout your workout.

-They are extremely comfortable.

-Sound quality is top notch.

-It’s also worth noting that the packaging was pretty cool.

-Because they are wireless headphones, they will die after eight hours of play time. If you don’t want to listen to the guy barking like a dog next to you in the gym, make sure you keep them charged, or suffer like we did.

-If you don’t have a Bluetooth device, you’re not screwed, but you do need to pay an additional $49.99 for a Bluetooth adapter.

The Verdict:
At $169.99, the JayBird BlueBuds X headphones definitely aren’t the cheapest set of headphones on the market, but you get what you pay for. With the BlueBuds, you can expect great sound, comfort, ease of use, and most importantly, wire free technology. So, if you’re into fitness and music, these are the perfect match for you.
