This week we take a moment to review a set of JayBird’s BlueBuds Bluetooth Headphones.

Item: JayBird BlueBuds X Bluetooth Headphones
Price: $169 USD
Manufacturer: JayBird
Purchase: www.JayBirdSport.com

In the above video review, John and Michael reveal their thoughts on the JayBird BlueBuds X Bluetooth Headphones.

A few months ago we posted a product highlight video of the headphones where Michael gave us his initial thoughts of the product and went over some of the main features. You can see the unboxing video by clicking here.

After testing the headphones for some time, and using it in many situations in and out of training, we now give you our final thoughts on the JayBird’s BlueBuds X Bluetooth Headphones and whether we think it is a worthwhile purchase.

JayBird BlueBuds X Headphones

For those who haven’t heard of JayBird’s BlueBuds Bluetooth Headphones, they are designed specifically for training, meaning they don’t come with long, annoying cords that only cause you frustration while working out. For CrossFitters, the headphones are designed to allow you to train to your personal music without having any cords getting in the way during training.

In this video review, we go in more depth about some of the good and bad features of the wireless headphones and how effective they are during functional fitness training.

Check out the full review in the video above, and if you’ve got a pair yourself, let us know your thoughts on the JayBird BlueBuds Bluetooth Headphones in the comment section below.

    My experience has been very different. I actually have very good reception and the buds stay in my ears very well. I use the little wings that lock the headphones into my ears — I think those are critical. I also don’t wrap the cords over the top of my ears (the manual shows two ways to wear them). I’m able to do nearly all my crossfit movements (burpees, thrusters, shuttle sprints, box jumps, etc.) and the headphones stay secure.

    When running, I keep my phone in an arm band (usually I wear the armband around my shin, between my knee and calf muscle). When I leave my phone on the gym floor, I do have to be more mindful of line-of-sight and interference (radio and large metal objects don’t go well together).

    When I’m really, really sweaty the buds sometimes start to slip out. Also, after training in them for ~4 hours per week for about 6 months, some of the controls stopped working correctly. Eventually I bought a second pair. I’ve been using them for about a year now and have really enjoyed them. In addition to training, I also use them a lot when working.

    All that being said, ears are a funny thing so you should try them yourself. They’re not perfect but the benefits of wireless are hard to beat. Customer service was also very good to deal with.
