What more could you want in a sports headphone?CNET80Jaybird Gear BlueBuds X review: Impressively smallThe Jaybird BlueBuds X are impressively small wireless sports earphones that offer a secure fit -- but the $170 just feels too high.SlashGear90JayBird BlueBuds X ReviewIf 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.phoneArena80Jaybird Bluebuds X ReviewWell, if you’re a gym rat, you’ll unequivocally find the Jaybird BlueBuds X as the best training partner, thanks to its robust audio quality and unique design.TrustedReviews70JayBird BlueBuds X reviewThe 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.Android Police90JayBird BlueBuds X Deep Dive Review: UltraportableEveryone needs to experience life without wires, and the BBX is probably the closest you can get to perfection today.The Gadgeteer70JayBird BlueBuds X wireless sports earbuds reviewFor 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.

From by personal experience it's been working perfectly, the sound quality is really good. The battery don't disappoint too, it holds at least 7 hours of usage.Engadget Reader70July 3, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A dependable product that doesn't really stand out from the competition. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90November 19, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader20November 4, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!These are not durable. They will break and despite what the Jaybird says, you will never get a good replacement. Search the web. You can find a lot of people that experienced the same thing. I would not recommend. Do yourself a big favor and look elsewhere.James90October 30, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

If you're active, DO NOT buy them. I bought a pair in early June. They died in less than 3 weeks. JayBird replaced them. Second pair died in less than 30 days. JayBird replaced them. Made me pay shipping!?!?! Third pair died in about 30 days. JayBird planning to ship me a fourth pair once they receive my failed set again. I spend more time waiting for new ones than I spend wearing them. JayBird says sweat. If so, then these ARE NOT sweat proof. I expect the fourth set to die before November. Not yet sure if JayBird will just give me a refund.Engadget Reader10September 26, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!This is my second device. The first one died on me & they replaced it. The replacement died again with a week. I'm not sure about the durability of this product. I demand a refund.Engadget Reader90August 5, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

Picking these up for $119 and the M50s for $120 was especially a bargain!Pros: Long battery life, wireless reach, premium sound quality (If the fit is good), staying in your ear even if moving around.Cons: The beeps they make while pressing the in-line buttons that cut out the music, large size for in-ear earphones, hurt after listening for a bit of listening,I highly recommend buying some Comply earphone tips to counter the lack of comfort. They also increase the sound quality.Engadget Reader90April 18, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

Past purchases experienced frequent disconnections, choppy audio, less than fully compatible playback and phone controls, and/or short battery life.The headset paired easily and quickly with my iPhone 5, and sounded great. The audio is clear, plenty loud, and offers good frequency response when properly seated in your ears. The volume controls affect the sound output of the iPhone, and all playback controls work, demonstrating proper compatibility. In iOS, a battery meter appears that shows the battery level of the headset. Nothing appeared to be hacked together, as all functions appeared to be properly and fully implemented.The audio quality can be affected noticeably when connected to older Bluetooth devices. When playing music from my MacBook Pro with Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, I would hear very frequent crackling, almost like the beginning of a well worn LP track. In my opinion this does not detract from the 5/5 rating I gave for sound quality. This headset is able to do very well when paired with a Bluetooth 4.0 device like the iPhone 5.Outgoing audio quality is arguably one of the biggest problems with Bluetooth headsets, and from all my tests, the quality on this headset is outstanding. I have used it for phone calls to others, and have made test calls to myself, and I would be lying if I didn't say that it offers the best sounding mic audio of any wireless headset out there today.Some notes after having used it for a day; If the headset goes out of range while you're wearing it, you will hear a single beep. The USB charging cable is of the flat variety, and only flexes easily on one plane. The USB cable is about 9" long. The headset battery will handily outperform your smartphone's battery... I burnt through two full cycles of my iPhone's battery while only being able to get through half of the headset's battery. At that rate, it has a 4-to-1 battery life when compared to the phone that it depends on.Engadget Reader60February 11, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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 disappointed because I would have used these all the time. I returned these after a few days for a full refund.Engadget Reader90December 14, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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 and have no concerns about the money you can't get any better product today.Engadget Reader80December 7, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!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 fit incredible. These are now my new favorite earphones. The fact that they are wireless is just a bonus. The sweat proof thing remains to be proven but so far everything they claim is true. The battery life is also pretty amazing. I am getting from 5-8 hours on a charge depending on what I am listening to and how loud. The controls are easy to use and I am told the mic sound quality is very good.
