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 with in-ear, go right ahead.
Jaybird BlueBuds X wireless sports earphones review: Impressive but pricey
24 July 2013
Summary: The Jaybird BlueBuds X are impressively small wireless sports earphones that offer a secure fit -- but the $170 price just feels too high.
Pros: The JayBird Gear BlueBuds X Bluetooth wireless earphones have a compact, lightweight design, fit securely, and sound good for Bluetooth headphones. They're also sweat-resistant and have an inline remote and microphone for making calls.
Cons: They're expensive and their cord management system is a little kludgy. Also, they may not fit everyone equally well -- and a tight seal is imperative for getting better sound quality.
