Cons: Expensive, Ear cushions can be hard to get used to
Summary: Anybody who has spent any time actually trying to get a few things done has run into the same problem with standard earbuds: eventually you snag the cord and either rip the buds out of your ears or out of the phone they’re plugged into. If you’re lucky, that’s the extent of the trouble.

Cons: Controls are awkward to operate while wearing the earphones. Not a secure fit unless worn behind head with fastener, which isn't for everyone.

Summary: Are the JayBird Bluebuds X the best Bluetooth headphones for athletes we’ve tested? Sure. Are they worth £170? That’s another matter entirely. We’re not sure any cans that need charging every week to work can demand that sort of pricetag but if you need one less wire above all else and you’re all-in...
