If you’re an active or athletic person, and enjoy music, then durable wireless earbuds make a good match for you. But what’s the perfect match? Jaybird Headphones thinks their Bluebuds X earbuds are the ultimate, and they have good reason to think that.
First, these Bluetooth earbuds are small, really small, and that calls for a small battery. Jaybird Headphones claims the battery in the Bluebuds is among the smallest in the biz, but still delivers up to 8 hours of use on a single charge. That comes to more than a week’s worth of one-hour workouts, or a whole day of, well, whatever, biking, hiking, kayaking, sitting at a desk…
Earbuds also should be comfortable, so the Bluebuds include patented sport ear cushions that hug the top, back and lower ear surface, but still manage to be incredibly small. The cord can be easily snugged up so it’s not touching your neck or flopping around when you exercise, which makes the Bluebuds more comfortable. A feature Jaybird Headphones calls X-Fit allows the Bluebuds to be used either in an under-ear position or over ear.
The Bluebuds include a technology called SignalPlus to help ensure the Bluetooth connection between your phone and your buds stays strong. A built-in voice guide (named Jenna—seriously) offers voice prompts to guide you through the Bluetooth pairing process.
Oh, and since these are sports earbuds, you want them to be sweatproof—Bluebud X earbuds are coated in Liquipel, a nanotechnology that keeps sweat and other moisture out of the earbuds.
