    Hi David,

    Cool headphones!

    I was really amazed by how they managed to completely hide that micro USB port behind a tiny lid. Even more amazing is their battery life!

    Hey, and thanks for including those videos – I was going to ask a couple of questions about those cushions, but I found the answers in the review 🙂

    BTW, how’s the quality of sound in them?

    Thanks again!

I am a fan of earphones and I love using them in everything I do, whether it’s listening to music, playing computer games, watching movies, etc. It’s also important that we look for good quality headphone and reviews like yours will go a long way to helping us choose one.

      Thanks Ramirez! I agree with you, as a music lover, I can’t imagine having a bad sound quality when I do my daily jogging or anything else… Good to know that my review is helpful to choose the best earphones!

    These look pretty cool David, thanks for such a thorough review! I’ve been looking for headphones for jogging and came across your page.

    I was finding that my current headphones seem to transmit unwanted noise through the cable because they are in-ear buds – when I accidentally brush against the cable it transmits the noise directly to my ears like a stethoscope! To be honest, I don’t know how anyone uses cabled in-ear headphones without getting this very annoying problem.

    Looks like these bluebuds solve it by not having the massive amount of cabling that can pick up thumps and noise, so I’ll definitely be checking these out! Thanks!

    Hello David,

    The Jaybird Blubuds X seem like a pretty good and hardy earbud. I like the fact that these ones are Bluetooth as is cuts down on the amount of cord you have. That is a pretty nice feature for running or any sports related activity. I am actually thinking about getting a pair of these for snowboarding season now. The fact that they are waterproof and battery lasts for 8 hours is perfect. From what you have said it looks like amazon has the best pricing. Ill check them out there and see what other people are saying as well. Are these your favorite blutooth ear buds?


    • David
      David November 26, 2015

      Yes Anthony, these headphones are definitely the best. You will have fun using them while snowboarding!

    One thing that really bothers me when I am running is for one of my earbuds to fall off my ear. And it is annoyig to have to put it in place every once in a while. But this headphones stop that from happening because they stay adjusted to your ears, so even if you are running they won`t fall off.
