Jaybird X2 - Great Wireless Headphones
Posted by: GoGoGadget from: on
... but hard to improve on what is already great.
As a owner of many pairs of headphones, I believe the Jaybird Bluebud X (1st generation) earbuds are, or should I say were now, currently the best set you can buy in terms of wireless quality and sound. There are many cheaper Bluetooth sets available, from recognized brands to ones I had never heard of; however, you truly get what you pay for. I should know as I have a drawer full of them where I bought on sale or through a vendor promo/discount code.
Needless to say, when the Jaybird X2 was released last week I was excited. I searched all over the internet for updates and reviews but it appeared that Best Buy and Jaybird were the only places you could buy them. The Jaybird website gave you some highlights of the new Jaybird X2 product but it did not have a place for feedback from its customers. This in mind, I could only rely on Best Buy reviews as no one, and I mean no one, had anything posted on the Jaybird X2 product a week ago. It took awhile but finally some reviews started showing up on Best Buy. As you are reading this review I am sure you already know that Jaybird products get high reviews and rightly so. However, they come with a premium price as well.
So here is my honest testimonial/review, as well as recommendation.
Like Apple iPhones, sure, you could upgrade for the sake of having the latest and greatest. But if you already own a pair of Jaybird Bluebud X (1st generation), I do not believe it is worth upgrading unless your current pair is falling apart or having issues. Sound is slightly improved, and I do mean slight (slightly deeper bass), but again, the Bluebud X earphones sound amazing already. Keep in mind that the Jaybird Freedom Sprint model is noticeably inferior in terms of sound compared to the Bluebud X and X2 models. Which is also why they are much cheaper, despite also having good reviews.
If you do not already own a pair of Jaybird Bluebud X (1st generation) and are considering them, you have a couple options. 1) Buy the Bluebud X model for a slight discount since the X2 model just came out. 2) Buy the current X2 model at full retail price. Keep in mind that the Bluebud X model rarely ever went on sale prior to the new model release of the X2. Also, keep in mind that there is only a slight discount on the Bluebud X model for a reason- the sound is very similar to the X2 model. In my opinion at least.
As a side bar, I recently ordered the memory foam Comply ear tips ("isolation" model ear tips) that were specifically designed for Jaybird, which are also included with the X2 model packaging; however, they are the "sport" model ear tips. So if you want, you can also buy the Comply ear tips separately to use with the Bluebud X model (about $15 depending on type) since they are not included with the packaging. But it is noted that you do get the re-engineered wing attachments with the X2 packaging, as well as two sets of ear tips (silicone and memory foam) vs one set (silicone only) with the Bluebud X model.
I own all three Jaybird models: Freedom Sprint, Bluebud X and now X2. I have done side-by-side comparisons personally, as well as my fiance, who has impeccable hearing mind you. We both reached similar said conclusions. Overall, independently I give this product (Jaybird X2) 5 stars. However, if you are looking to upgrade I would take the above into consideration. Sorry for the long review but I thought I would pass along my research/review for what it's worth.

Better than the x1
Posted by: Leon from: on
If you liked the first version of these babies then do yourself a favor and get the x2. It's pretty much the same design but looks better fits better sounds better. Just overall better quality. The only complaint is the case. I honestly like the old case a lot better. The new ones are like friction fit. Other than that it's a great buy!

The jaybird X2 headphones are some of the greatest wireless headphones you can buy. I am a sound engineer/audiophile, and I love these headphones for their versatility, comfort, and sound quality. First off, they are customizable with a variation of wings, (the part that makes them stay in your ear, looks like a grid), silicon earbuds, and comply foam earbuds. No matter how big or small your ear, these will fit. They are very comfortable in your ear, water resistant (rain/sweat, not submersible), and do not fall out while running. The sound quality is very good, highs, mids, and lows all balance pretty equally. However, if you are wanting extreme bass, maybe don't care too much about sound quality, then these are not the headphones for you. Bass is good enough for me as I like a detailed and balanced sound. If you want a bit of a bass boost, regardless of overall sound quality, beats are a good option for you. (
keep in mind beats earphones wired/wireless are not fully sweat proof and water resistant like these are). If you want sound quality unmatched by sport headphones for the gym, running, working out etc., go with the jaybird x2's. Now for someone who doesn't use these for workout/gym headphones, not going to get wet, not going to be rained on, etc, go with the Jaybird Freedom. It has customizable equalizers on the application for IOS/Android. Better control, better sound quality. Also has options to where you can listen to music with the exact presets of the music when it was recorded. You can listen to music how other people have their settings adjusted to you options to where you can listen to music with the exact presets of the music when it was recorded. You can listen to music how other people have their settings adjusted to, by sharing the settings you have on the app. This way you can listen exactly how the music was meant to be created. I just bought the X twos and love them but I'm going to get the X3's when they come out. X3's will have The customizable equalizer in them. Would give the x2's 5 stars if they had that feature, but I'll just have to wait. (Release date rumored August/September 2016. I like the X2's better than the Freedom series, because they are better for the gym. I have the x2's and will be upgrading to the 3's when they come out, but I also need some for the time being.
EXTRA:(For you audio heads.) I am a drummer and when I play I use 1964 ears. If you are a musician, sound engineer, or audiophile (like me), check them out. They are top of the line custom in ear molds for the absolute best phenomenal sound quality. Price can get up there though. Another, cheaper option are the Shure se215's, $99 bucks. I had these before 1964's for a while but I used them at the gym and tore them up, well worth it all the while. Finally, you are welcome to give me feedback on my review, all of it is much appreciated, and I hope I have influenced your decision positively!

AwESOmE WiRELess Headphones!
Posted by: DreWood from: on
I am quite active and I have a hard time finding sweat proof headphones. Most of the headphones I get never last. These are pretty good sweat proof headphones.
They are a bit expensive. You do not need to get the best buy 2 year protection plan because Jaybird provides a lifetime warranty on them. The lifetime warranty is good only for 2 to 3 years (the lifetime they feel the rechargeable battery lasts)
My only big complaint is that the advertise these headphones to have 8 hours of battery life; they don't. I have timed it and they last 3 to 4 hours on a full charge.

good quality head phones
Posted by: Najivunia from: on
I bought these headphones for myself and a pair of powerbeats 2 for my girlfriend. I have small ears so I figured the Jaybirds X 2 would fit more comfortably as I've had issues trying to find head phones that won't fall out during long runs. The packaging and carrying case for the jaybirdsX2 are hands down better quality than the powerbeats 2. Both head phones are well made but the X2 appears more durable than the power beats. For example the charging cable for the X2 is beefier than that of the powerbeats 2 and the headphones themselves feel more durable. However, I didn't like the fit on the X2 as much as the powerbeats 2 as it felt like my ears were completely plugged..... that feeling you get when you're in the deep end of a swimming pool...kinda felt like that at times. I did try changing the tips but there wasn't that much of a difference. The power beats were amazingly more comfortable and I was able to hear my surroundings clearer when the music was off as opposed to the X2 where it felt like you have you index fingers in your ears and you could hear your voice in your head when you speak- I'm not sure if that helps describe the feeling.... Both head phones remained secure/ didn't fall out during an intense 3 mile run (I tried the both separately). I do not like the design for adjusting the headphones to make them secure on the back of you head for the X2, The powerbeats is much easier to adjust.. however the X2 stays more secure than the powerbeats 2 once you've found the right adjustment.

Great... For some.
Posted by: CBitt from: on
The JayBird X2s are a wireless headset that's just ok. The X2's don't get very loud and have little to any bass. If you are just looking for sound quality and low volumes then this is for you, but if you are looking for a wireless headset with a little more bass try a wireless headset with a bigger driver. With this driver being only 6mms you can't really expect much. Overall the headset isn't fit for everyone, the earbud will fall out of your ear or will make your ear hurt of feel very uncomfortable over a little period of time. They are a little bulky but these headphones look amazing. The case and the extra "ear cushions" is a great addition with these earbuds. But for 149.99 I will tell you, you can get a much better wireless earbud set.
P.S. If you plan to keep these earbuds and are happy with them then tweak your phones audio settings, it helps a little but makes a difference.

Best Sport Headphones in the Market!!!!!!
Posted by: VladtheRetailer from: on
I owned a pair Jaybird Bluebud X and they were a game changer for all my workouts. Pros being that the Bluetooth had an extremely long range (25-40ft with my Galaxy Note 4), Battery life was amazing and recharge was outstanding at 15 minute charging gave me 1 hour of playback time and earpiece stayed in place for the most part. That right there was the downfall though, I often times had to readjust my headphones in place only to find my sweat making it slip out. Well right about a week ago my dog ate my pair and I was forced to buy a new pair.. I went to Best Buy and didn’t them but found these Bluebud X2 at the store. I bought them and went to the gym the same day. I am happy to report that they are the EXACT SAME THING. But with one difference. They come with new ear tips and fins that DO NOT slip out!! The buds are made from the same foam material that are found in ear plugs and isolate the outside world AND it enhances the audio quality in return. The fins are not that rubbery this time around either so it just makes it stay that much in place in your ear. Like I said everything is the same including the recharge time. My only gripe is the case that it comes with, not the greatest as the last case was much easier to open and close. Again, THESE are the best sport headphones in the market.

Good, Not Mind-Blowing
Posted by: super9er from: on
I bought these gave them a fair shot for 3 days, then returned them and purchased the Monster Adidas Sport Adistar, which retails for $80 less and I like better.
Sound: Good, clean, clear, sound signature. Delivers a surprising amount of bass for 6mm drivers, which will satisfy most (except for bass-heads). Good soundstage.
Fit: Average. Took literally 30 mins. to try and get a good fit combination of ear tips and fins. Got a secure fit, but it was a bit uncomfortable. I have it a few days, and although secure, it never got better. It left a portion of my upper ear fold raw and sensitive.
Bluetooth: Good range, but it's nothing you wouldn't expect at this price range. Actually, the Monster Adidas Sport Adistar has better range. "SignalPlus", whatever that is or does, amounts to no added real-world benefit.
Mic/Calls: Callers reported my voice sounded clear and near. Nobody specifically knew I was on an earbud mic until...I began to move around. The mic is good if left in place, however, based on my experience, if you're raising your arms or moving around, such that there is some obstruction #not entirely# in front of the mic, it has trouble picking your voice up.
Overall, solid and definitely above average, however, I was expecting to be "WOWd" at this price point, but I was not. At a lower price, I was totally floored with the overall performance of the Monster Adidas Sport Adistar Bluetooth earbuds, which I recommend over the X2s.

Love the product but not totally sweatproof
Posted by: Gotcha from: on
Let me start by saying I'm going to try and keep this story short. I have had other Bluetooth headphones before the Blue Jays and they went bad because of sweat. So I looked on line for something better and came across Blue Jays. I bought the X1 and it lasted 2 months before they quit on me. I got them replaced because they were under warranty. The second pair went bad at about 2 months and I was wondering what was going on. I got them replaced with X2s. The 3rd pair went bad after 2 months and I started to figure out what was going on. The problem I figured out was that when you set the headset up where the controller is close to your head in the "over the ear" configuration, while the earpieces are "sweatproof" but the controller is not. And that is what kept shorting out on me. On my second pair I emailed the company with what I thought was the problem and they said that the new X2 controller was dipped in the extra sweatproof compound and this should help with this. It didn't. I got my 4th pair which I am currently on. Here's the thing. The sound is excellent and while the X1 earbuds had a problem of staying in your ears when they got sweaty, the X2 earbuds stay in very well with the improvements they made. The overall product is very good. DO NOT use the over the ear set up and you will be fine. Also, it is very true that they stand behind their product and will replace it if it goes bad which is the reason I didn't go back to the other headphones I had before I got the Blue Jays. If and when they come out with X3s, they need to take a serious look at the present controllers they are using and come up with a different one. One that does not let sweat in and short out.

Better than the Bluebuds X
Posted by: Rawcut from: on
Literally got these into the store today, and I ended up returning my Bluebuds X's for these. Right off the bat, they sound 10 times better. There's much less cracking at low volume, and the bass is noticeably better, and pretty good for them being bluetooth earbuds.
I compare these to the LG Tone Ultras, as I owned a bunch of those for a while, and only came to Jaybirds because the LG's kept breaking and I kept having to return them.
These almost rival the Ultras in sound quality, and the build quality feels really good. I'm really impressed that they give you 2 of each size in earbuds, traditional and a foamy type one that I have yet to use.
As of now, my only complaints are the case, while it is bigger than the bluebud x's, it's not a clasp, but friction fit. Also, the crackling is still present, but lower volume levels sound miles better than they did.
All in all, definitely an improvement and able to justify the price jump.
