  • Accessory Review: JayBird Sport BlueBuds X Premium Bluetooth Buds


    We all have our preferred ways of listening to music while working out. Some prefer in-ear earbuds, while others prefer larger and more robust over-ear headphones. If you’re like me, you typically find yourself wanting to use something that grants you the freedom to run without stumbling over cords. Over the last 12-14 months, I’ve wanted to find superior-quality Bluetooth earbuds that would exceed the Motorola S10-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headphones that I had learned to love several years ago. Today, let me introduce you to the JayBird Sport BlueBuds X Premium Bluetooth Buds.


    Being an avid audiophile, I had high expectations prior trying these earbuds. With a $150+ price tag, I was a bit skeptical. It’s not often that something that looks good on paper actually meets up to those standards. Within moments of syncing my BlueBuds X to my BlackBerry Z10, I was immersed into a whole new way of listening to music while working out. While listening to some of the latest radio hits, I was able to move freely without having a cable getting tangled in my movements. The clean, interference-free sound made every aspect of the songs stand out on their own.


    My workout lifestyle isn't as robust as I once hoped it would be, but getting into an intense session of running tends to bring my to a sweaty mess! I've ruined some wired earbuds in the past due to my perspiration, so discovering that JayBird had a Lifetime Warranty Against Sweat for their products brought reassurance to me. JayBird is a true hidden gem in the Sport/Active Lifestyle audio accessories industry, & the quality of the product they offer is better than similar headphones that are sometimes sold at a difference of over $100.

    What I found within the BlueBuds X was exactly what would be expected: JayBird had taken a high-quality audio product & place it into an offering that is meant for the active, outdoorsy lifestyle.


    Pros:

    • Multiple colours (Midnight Black, Storm White)
    • Superior Audio Quality
    • Premium Protective Carry Case
    • Multiple sizes (S,M,L) of ear tips & ear cushions included
    • Lifetime Warranty Against Sweat



    Cons:

    • Slight delay in response from talk/answer button
    • Hinge for USB cap very flimsy/easily broken
    • Short Length/rigidity of included Micro USB Cable



    If you are looking for some high-quality bluetooth earbuds to keep your beats pumping this fall, you won’t be disappointed with the JayBird Sport BlueBuds X earbuds. At a cost of approximately $170, these headphones are worth every penny spent for the joy they will be bring to the audiophile or sport aficionado in your life.
