The Jaybirds Bluebuds X are one of the strongest sellers on Amazon at the moment, and that’s pretty surprising in a way. The Bluebuds X are in-ear headphones which cost $169 by default, so it’s hard to think so many people are willing to pay so much for an in-ear model… people really love their iPod don’t they?
Well, The Jaybirds Bluebuds X show exactly how well a portable device can sound when an in-ear model is done right.
After reading this review, chances are that you will want to forget all about these companies that make in-ear headphones their second priority and go for the real deal with this one.
The Jaybirds Bluebuds X could really attract anybody. They’re portable but powerful enough to use at home, cool and discrete at the same time and it can be used for many purposes.
Naturally, it will be a popular pick amongst athletes, since running while listening to music wirelessly is probably any athlete’s dream.
The Jaybirds Bluebuds X will be able to maintain that quality wirelessly all while you stay on the move. The model is even the official training headphone of USA triathlon, so reliability shouldn’t be a problem here.
The Bluebuds X have a lot going for them, and that starts with look. It’s probably one of the most amazing pairs of in-ears available right now. No matter where you’re from or where you want to use them, they will get positive reactions from the people around you.
If you don’t mind owning the coolest headphones in the subway you take daily, these are for you! The white/black/green design is simply very well done.
The wireless technology is mainly what justifies the price of these headphones. With its specific codec, the Jaybird Bluebuds X are able to produce a surprising quality of sound, which to be honest is pretty much the same as if the thing was wired, which is exactly the goal.
Is a wireless pair of in-ear headphones necessary? Well, if you use them regularly, the answer could very well be yes. Setting up your wire in between your layers of clothes and making sure it doesn’t stay stuck or pull on you at any moment can be quite a hassle to do each day.
Again, to take that example in the subway, it’s usually pretty hot in there, so managing in what pocket you put your MP3 player as you remove layers of clothes can be a real hassle. The Jaybird BlueBuds X allow you to keep them on your ears at all times, without worry.
Sound & Other Features
Sound quality was simply awesome when we put them on and other customers online are saying exactly the same. They represent a definite improvement over regular iPod headphones and surpass most of its competitors in this area. Music is obviously this model’s focus, and everything sounds crisp and clear, just as if the data was transferred through a wire.
This quality stays put all through the 8 hours of playtime that the battery is able to produce. Then, the comfort factor also plays a role as the headphones really stay in place in your ear. Preferences in this area always depend on the person, but most customers are saying that the headphones stay in place and produce excellent sound.
So to sum it up, this is an excellent buy on which you will want to keep your eye on so that you don’t lose them! They’re easier to lose sight of so be careful about that. In the end we were surprised that the Jaybird Bluebuds X are actually worth the $169 it’s demanding. We found them with a rebate on Amazon at $153.62 so hopefully you can be as lucky.
And lastly, these headphones come with a rather interesting “Lifetime Warranty Against Sweat”, so you shouldn’t get penalized for any damages in that regard apparently.
This is another proof that the Jaybird Bluebuds X were indeed made with athletes in mind. Any high-level athlete serious about their training should invest in these to get rid of all wires, and keep the motivating music sounding the same.
