    I purchased these based on the great track record Jaybird seems to have built up, being the third generation in their X line I jumped on the opportunity to purchase the X3 on release. They are simply the best wireless earphones by far that they actually beat most wired ones i've also used. The battery claims hold up and the connectivity is solid, the way it instantly pairs with everything I own that has bluetooth all at the same time on power on is fantastic and convenient. The Comply ear-tips have kept the buds in my ear for more than 3 hours at a time with great comfort and isolate an incredible amount of outside noise. The only thing I can potentially point out as a negative is the charging method with involves clicking the control unit located on the wire into a tiny usb powered dock. I was immediately annoyed by this but after a few days I can say thats its a perfectly good way to charge it and is actually more convenient than plugging in a micro usb cable as you can clip on the X3 charger with just one hand. Jaybird's MySound app is a great way of seeing exactly how much juice is left in the buds and the sound tuning possible with it is amazing. At the launch price of 129.99 these are much cheaper than any other Jaybird earphones at launch and are totally worth it. If you found my review helpful please mark it as so and thanks for reading.

    X3s are the Absolute Best Wireless Earbuds

    Posted
    SGCA

    X3s Are simply Best of all EarBuds I think the Jaybird X3s are simply the best earbuds available to date ( 2016-11-20 ) and they are extremely functional, durable and comfortable; they have a long battery life ( ~8hrs ) and long Bluetooth range ( 100+ feet ); they produce a rich & deep sound that’s clear, crisp and clean. The audio / music can be adjusted and modified using JayBird MySound app’s 5 band equalizer with crossovers to add or subtract treble, bass or midranges to one’s preference and taste. The earbuds ( wings & tips ) are extremely comfortable after many hours of continual use and noise isolation is very good when using the comply tips that come in box. BASS is very good & strong You can add as much or little bass as you like or remove it entirely. I like and enjoy the way the X3s can be configured using the MySound 5 band equalizer so certain songs can be heard with very low bass that is long and drawn out; delivering that deep and long boooooooom. Have to Experience X3s to appreciate them. Words inadequate. I sincerely apologize, but I do not have the vocabulary to express or explain the joy, satisfaction and immense pleasure I receive & experience when listening to music on the X3s. Jaybird X3s are Superior and Better than X2s Jaybird X3s are superior to the X2s in every single area except when it comes to charging. Only Complaint with X3s is need for proprietary “Charging Clip” My only complaint about the X3s at this time is the need for a separate piece of proprietary hardware which Jaybird calls a “charging clip” to charge the X3 earbuds. What’s in the box: a. EarBuds b. 3 sets of Silicon Ear Fins ( small, medium, large ) c. 3 sets of Silicon Ear Tips ( small, medium, large ) d. 3 sets of Comply Isolation Ear Tips ( small,medium, large ) e. 2 cord clips f. 1 shirt clip g. 1 Carry Pouch h. 1 USB to Micro USB cable with “Charging Clip” attached NO charger included. Use any charger that has USB connection with less than 5.5v output. X3s Paired quickly & easily with phone and laptop. a. you can pair earbuds to two separate devices simultaneously. b. you can easily switch between both devices, but not play simultaneously. c. to switch between devices, pause one device, then press play on the other. Controller buttons are very responsive to touch and work with very little pressure or fidgeting. Vol +/-: * increases ( + ) or decreases ( - ) volume * if held down will skip forward ( + ) or backwards ( - ) Play/Pause: * if lightly pressed will play or pause audio * if held down will turn earbuds On or Off If X3 is paired ( has Bluetooth connection ) and no audio is playing then pressing Vol +/- will announce battery charge. Volume can be turned down so low that it's barely audible or up so high that it's extremely loud and would hurt one's ears if the Jaybird MySound 5 band equalizer is configured so all levels are high ( at max )... MySound App The MySound app can be used to: a. save Music Profiles ( equalizer settings ) to the earbuds b. customize Music Profile using the app’s equalizer c. test audio going to left or right earbuds d. switch left & right audio on earbuds e. display X3 battery status on phone f. view faqs or download user guides g. text / chat with support The Jaybird MySound app connects to the X3s via Bluetooth “Only”. If there is no Bluetooth connection with the X3s, meaning an Android or IOS device is not paired with the X3, then the MySound app will not be able to do following: a. get status of battery charge from the earbuds b. display battery charge on the android or ios device c. save equalizer settings ( Music Profile ) to the earbuds Automatic turn off: If the earbuds are completely idle: ( no Bluetooth signal and none of the buttons on the earbud are touched ), then the earbud will automatically turn itself off after ~5mins. If any of the buttons are touched on the controller, then the 5min countdown timer will reset itself and the earbud will turn itself off 5mins after the buttons were touched. Charging: Full ( 100% ) charge last ~8hrs depending on volume & bass. With 1A charger it takes: ~2.50 hrs to charge from 0% to 100%. With 2A charger it takes: ~1.25 hrs to charge from 0% to 100%. With 1A charger: 15-20 mins charge adds ~1hr audio play. With 2A charger: 15-20 mins charge adds ~2hrs audio play. Avoid any USB charger that has more than 5.5v output. Any USB chargers ( Wall, Car, etc ) that supply more than 5.5v will damage Jaybird X3 earbuds and should not be used. X3 Battery charge can be checked: * When earbuds are first turned on charge is announced. * MySound app displays battery charged on earbuds. * Pressing Vol +/- when no audio is being played. * Pulling down notification panel shows % battery charge left. You can listen to music while charging the earbuds. It’s a little tricky as you have to make sure the “charging clip” doesn’t disconnect from the inline controller, but it’s possible if you’re somewhat stationary as in laying or sitting down, even standing up ( if you’re using portable battery bank / charger ); so long as you don’t move around too much causing “charging clip” to become detached from the inline controller you will be able to listen to audio / music and charge the earbuds. Bluetooth Connectivity: If there is no Bluetooth connectivity ( earbuds are not paired ) and there is no audio or music being played the earbuds will automatically turn themselves off after ~ 5mins. Earbuds will not turn off automatically so long as there is a Bluetooth signal and connectivity ( X3s are paired ) even though no audio / music is being played. Bluetooth Range: * 33 feet is spec * 100 feet was very solid * 100-150 feet sensitive to movement * 150-311 feet very sensitive to movement Bluetooth signal and audio reception and use of controls ( Vol +/-, Play/Pause ) at distances measured above was better in a large enclosed room or gym than outside under open sky. Bluetooth Signal Passes Through Walls I can hear audio and music all throughout the house. I placed phone in one side of house and was able to walk to most of the rooms in the house both upstairs & downstairs, including garage and there was no disruption in Bluetooth connection nor significant degradation in sound. Signal passed through walls. Highly Recommend getting the BestBuy Extended Warranty

    First day, A+ from my end

    I haven't had these x3s for more than a day now, but after chatting on the phone for an hour, listening to a couple of hours of music at work, and listening to music while on a two mile trail-run (all on the charge straight out of the box) these Jaybirds have performed fantastically. The price was fine, coming from the corded Bose Soundsports these were not overpriced in comparison. The fit was weird from that Bose transition- they felt more invasive in my ear, but it was easy to get used to. They cancelled noise pretty well (more effective than the Bose Soundsports) with the foam buds in, and sat nicely in my ear with the small ear fins (and I have small narrow ears). When running I was actually surprised to not feel them try to wiggle out, or shift around. The controls were smooth and it worked great with my iPhone 5s. The sound quality was awesome, but the bass will oversaturate some music. With the app paired with these headphones, the bass can be taken care of (add more bass if you like) and the music playing can be balanced the way you like. I have not had any issues with the app's connecting, or bluetooth connection. On day one these guys are pretty fantastic! If you're debating it, I'd say give them a try. Bestbuy has a pretty good exchange policy if you hate them. I've never had Jaybirds before, but reviews on the x2s got me interested, so I got these x3s to test out. I'll be keeping them. Thanks for reading my hyped up word spewage.

    Finally released by Jaybird!

    Posted
    ibCotts

    These are most likely the best wireless headphones on the market. The earbuds are slightly smaller than the X2s (although they still protrude from your ears somewhat). My LG Tone Platinums are my everyday buds and these give them a run for their money. The bass is much better on the X3's without washing out the highs and midtones. The My Sound app that allows you to change the equalizer settings (either to a large selection of predefined settings or your to own custom settings) is what sets this apart from the X2s and in a big way. Changes that you make to the settings can radically change the sound - and the changes are saved to the earbuds so that you don't lose the settings if you pair them to a different device. I was originally skeptical considering that Jaybird first announced these in February at CES and then they finally released them close to November. This means that they are already antiquated. But it appears that between then and now they have made some modifications including slimming down the earbuds. I expected them to be released minimally at the X2 price point and was pleasantly surprised that they were priced much more competitively. For $129 these are great earphones and blow away the more expensive Freedoms (which I tried and returned). If you have the X2s these are a worthy upgrade. If you are using anything else then I think it's a no brainer to purchase the X3s as a replacement.

    Disappointed

    I had high expectations for these headphones but yet again was very disappointed with the longevity of these. Already been through three sets, they have a issue with holding a charge. If you overcharge it by even 30 minutes it will screw up the battery, and will not hold a charge. I've owned every set Jaybird has put on the market, these are the best overall out of all of them. The sound is great and when the battery is charged properly they last all week. I use them for running in the over ear configuration and they do stay in my ear when properly fitted with included ear pieces. I would say to try something different or make sure you purchase the geek squad protection as I have returned these 3 times.

    First time user of Jaybird earbuds. Went to Bestbuy last night to see if the powerbeats3 were in stock yet. Salesman recommended these instead because he was an X2 user but hadn't tried the X3s yet. After some quick research on my phone about the X3s I decided to give them a try. Pretty cool that you can change the eq settings with the mysound app. I was nervous that they wouldn't have enough bass in them like my 1st gen Beats earbuds that are 6 years old. These outperform my Beats and they are reasonably priced.

    Better than X2

    Posted
    danm

    Bought the X2 several months ago. Never fit right. Was not impressed. Lost them. Was hesitant to buy the X3. Glad I did. Fit is much better than X2, stays in place while running, comfortable for working out, great sound, and excellent noise reduction. Much better than the X2.

    Wow! These are the fifth set of Bluetooth earbuds I tried in my search for wireless earbuds that are wireless AND sound good. Apparently that's hard to find. I finally found them! The last ones I tried were the LG Tone. They actually sounded pretty good but I didn't like the design - wearing that plastic "necklace" just seemed weird. These Jaybirds are great! They come with three different silicone earbuds and three different foam earbuds plus multiple ear hooks. Only drawback is the proprietary charging dongle. It's small and easily lost if you aren't careful. Sound is the best I've heard in a Bluetooth headphone. Battery is heading toward three hours right now and battery reading is 45%. Excellent earbuds. These are the ones to get!
