If you’re the sort of person who wants the best Bluetooth earbud experience on the market today, we can safely say that we’ve seen no other set better than the JayBird BlueBuds X. That all comes with a price, of course, of right around $170, a rung above the competition. Don’t expect these buds to feel like the steel-and-gold beasts that the rest of the high-cost personal audio equipment world suggests means quality – instead you’ve got plastic and rubberized connections to keep you sweatproof and hearty while JayBird delivers the high-quality audio in any high-action situation. quote

The Jaybird BlueBuds X are impressively small wireless sports earphones that offer a secure fit -- but the $170 just feels too high.

The JayBird BlueBuds X Bluetooth earphones are some of the best sounding wireless earphones we've tried, let down only by the temperamental fit and fiddly controls.

For a pair of sport earbuds, their sound quality, features, and capabilities are impressive, but their bud-size and all-plastic construction does not give a premium or top-shelf vibe.

This is my first review here so be gentle. I really can't believe how good these earphones are. I'm an audiophile and I would say these are about 80-90% as accurate as my Etymotic ER4s. Which is about 100% better than any other A2DP earphones I have tried. The little wing things really make the...

After one week, am I totally satisfied! The only concern is the price, but I must admit that you got great value for the money. You can get better sound for that price tag, but then it's not near the extreme form factor of Bluebuds X. So if you prioritize mobility and have demands of good sound...

Bought these after seeing MKBHD review them, along with the Audio Technica ATH-M50 over-ear headphone, and they are everything I was hoping they would be! Picking these up for $119 and the M50s for $120 was especially a bargain! Pros: Long battery life, wireless reach, premium sound quality (If...

Overall a good product if you're not worried about bluetooth signals running through your skull. I had no problem with bluetooth before using these but whenever I wore them for more than 10 minutes I felt a pressure and dizzyness that began to go away once I turned them off. I'm really...
