    Great package that exceeds expectations

    Highs, Volume

    These earbuds have exceeded my expectations in several ways, and are in my top list currently. Long story short, before diving into the rest of my review, if you're considering these, I don't think you'd be disappointed, and I recommend them. The box delivers a presentation you would expect from an item in this price and feature range: upon pulling the inner box out of the sleeve, you open a magnetic flap to reveal the earbuds displayed in a slick black backing and simple packaging that only focuses on the earbuds. All the accessories are hidden below in behind another flap, and a small quickstart list is printed on the left flap. The box contains the earbuds with preinstalled ear tips, 2 additional tips, a magnetic charger, a collar clip, a small carry bag, a quickstart guide, and a product manual. An additional item not in the box is the Jaybird App, which is not necessary to use the earbuds, but it's necessary to get the complete experience out of them, and I wouldn't recommend using them until you install and run the app. Kicking off the positives for this set is the fit options. These earbuds come with tips with wings connected which give a more secure fit when properly sized to your ear. The wings are soft enough that they don't hurt, and they are secure enough that I couldn't shake them out. Adding to the comfort and fit is the design of the cable and control box. The cable is a nice braided nylon covered wire that hangs comfortably behind your head without bother your skin, and the control box is really lightweight with raised buttons that are easy to identify visually and with your finger. The control box is slightly contoured, following a curve that rests naturally along the side of your head or neck, making the controls easy and comfortable to press, and they are just resistent enough that it doesn't cause discomfort when pressing them. One of the nicest features improving fit comfort is what Jaybird calls "Switch Fit", which allows you to wear the earbuds with the wire hanging below your ear, or wrapped over your ear. The guide helps walk through doing this, but the functionality is such that you can rotate each ear tip about 90 degrees on the housing, which allows the tip and wing to fit the same in the ear, but redirects the wire. By default they are set for the wire to hang from your ear, but I found I preferred them rotated to fit over the ear. This does a couple things: it tightens up the wire on your head, it secures the earbuds a bit more by wrapping the wire between your ear and head, and it raises the wire up off your neck and more to the base of your hairline. I found them most comfortable this way. To help find your fit, along with various other settings, Jaybird recommends using their app. I do too, as it's one of the strengths of these earbuds. While the quickstart guide is simple enough to get you going, the Jaybird app offers a complete tutorial to get them set up and fit for you, including fitting your audio preference. The app features full guides starting with the basics of controls, going through connecting and fitting, and even simple things like how to use the speed cinch and shirt clip. Many of these guides also include videos to help visually, like how to fit the earbuds and adjust them to your head. The most powerful feature of the app, though, is also what makes this set so versatile: the equalizer settings. Many less expensive earbuds come with built-in equalizer pre-sets to provide flat, bass-heavy, or more rounded listening experiences. This set comes more flat/neutral out of the box, and the app provides an enormous list of options submitted by the community. You can select any one of the submitted settings and try it out before applying it to your earbuds, which allows you to find a sound that fits your music or style. If that's not enough though, you can fully customize your own unique settings, and you can submit that to the community if you feel inclined. This allows you to change your listening preference based on your music or mood, and you can do it as much as you want. Selecting a setting loads the setting on the earbuds so you can listen with those settings without connecting to your phone or tablet. One of the biggest points of contention for me on wireless headphones and earbuds is advertised run time versus actual run time, so I like to put all my earbuds through the test to see just how accurate the claims are. The box for these advertises 14 hours and a fast charge, which is a really long run time that I don't think I will ever fully use, but I still wanted to prove it. I fully charged the earbuds and hooked them up to a test computer for some overnight playtime measuring. I set the volume up to a higher mid-level, reasonable for in-ear listening, but still loud enough I could hear them a bit while sitting on the desk, and started playback at 9:25pm. They played on a continous list with no delays or quiet time through a variety of songs, all around the same balanced volume level, and they continued until 1:53pm the next afternoon. That's 16hrs 28m of continuous, non-stop playback on a full charge, which is longer than other earbuds I have tested over $200! What's more impressive is that these manage that battery life with no obvious large battery or box. One final positive about these is the IPX7 rating. This is more than most sweatproof headphones that are typically IPX6 rated, since it covers immersion. The X means they haven't been tested against solid object entry, like dirt, but the 7 means they are protected from water immersion up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. While you're not likely to try using them snorkling, and I would recommend against that, this does provide more confidence in their ability to withstand sweat from a rigorous workout, or even accidentally dropping in a puddle, sink, or other small body of water you might happen by. These earbuds are not perfect, however, and though the cons I have are fairly minor in the scope of things, they are still worth mentioning for a complete decision. First of all, they can only connect to one device at a time. It's a bit disappointing because it would be great to pair them to my phone and computer at the same time, and be able to manage the equalizer settings without having to disconnect from a computer, but that's not the case. All the other sets I own offer this feature, and while it's not a dealbreaker for me, it's a pretty critical feature I'd like to see. Second, the equalizer settings are only able to be controller from the app on your phone or tablet; there is no application for Windows or Mac, which ties you to the mobile app. Having a computer app available would help overcome the issue with only being connected to one device at a time. Currently, it's really annoying if you're listening to music on your computer, or playing a game, and decide you want to switch up your listening experience, as you have to disconnect, connect to a mobile device, launch the app, adjust the equalizer settings, and then disconnect from that device, and reconnect to your computer. The third issue is a bit more minor, but deals with the sound quality. When you power them on, a voice prompt indicates the battery level and the connection status. The speakers crackle when it says the battery level, and the audio is not maxed out where I would expect any kind of distortion through the speakers. This could be an issue with the set I have, or could be an issue with the earbuds. It doesn't matter what equalizer setting I have applied either. You can cause distortion when applying an EQ setting that is too high in areas, but that's different, as you can always change back to avoid that, and this is a built-in prompt and feature, so it's a bit concerning. Again, though, I wouldn't consider this a dealbreaker. Just something worth noting. The last issue I have with these is the proprietary charger. The charger is a nice magnetic charger that makes it quick and easy to dock and charge, and it eliminates the need to keep track of a small rubber or silicone plug that protects a micro USB port to retain water proofing, but it also means that you can't charge these with just any cable. If you happen to leave your charger at home on a trip, you're out of luck. Thankfully the charger, all ear tips, and the earbuds can all fit in the included bag, but it does mean that you need to take special care of the charger, and keep track of it unless you feel like buying replacements. Everything considered, I have made this set my primary set, and am actually getting rid of several other "sport" earbud sets I have in favor of using these as my primary. Weigh the pros and cons for your own situation, but definitely consider these among your options when looking for a solid set of well performing earbuds. For the price, this pack is hard to beat.

    Great for Phone Calls and Good for Workouts

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    For working out, Sound quality, Use with apps
    Cons mentioned:
    Buttons

    I have owned many different pairs of workout Bluetooth headphones and each had features I liked and disliked about them. I have also owned quite a few Jaybird products and was excited to try these out. Setup Jaybird makes setup easy. Just turn on the headphones, select Jaybird Tarah Pro from your phone’s Bluetooth menu and you are ready to start using them. Downloading the Jaybird app allows you to tweak the sound to your preference, and it is easy to navigate. Use The first thing I noticed on the Jaybird Tarah Pro is the braided cord. This cord makes it very unlikely to ever become tangled in your gym bag and prevents the cord from sticking to your neck during a workout. The only downside of having a braided cord is that I was able to hear more cord rustling while running with a jacket on. I also found the sliding cinch and rotating earbuds wonderful for quickly changing the cable in front for phone conversations and in the back for workouts. One of the negative things about these headphones was that the power button would have to be pressed for a few seconds in order to get them to turn on. Normally this would not be a problem, but these also require a certain amount of pressure too, which made it aggravating. I was unimpressed with the lack of bass, so I tried to adjust the earbuds and even modified the sound in the app, but could not obtain the low range I was looking for. As for the highs and mids, they were full and clear. With the volume control/mic located in the front of the neck, my phone call recipient stated my voice was at a good volume and clear. However, when I had the cord cinched on the back of my neck, my voice was muffled and quiet. Pros Braded cord does not stick to sweaty skin during workout Non-tangle cord Passive sound isolation Sits close to flush in the ear Rotating earbud Cons Power button issue (see review for details) Not as much bass as competitors Overall I would recommend the Tarah Pro for anyone who wants a single pair of headphones that they can use for both phone calls/meetings and workouts.

    Noise cancellation

    I have been looking around and tried a few earbuds. These have become my favorite earbuds for work, commutes, working out, fishing, etc. Opening the box you have everything packaged neatly and it is exciting to open. I love the pouch and charging dongle. You can fit everything in side the ouch and it fits nice in the pocket, car dash/cup holder. The braided cord is great no snags or tangles. You do get a little bit of rubbing noise on the left side but it’s not a problem to me. The fit is terrific, secure, and for me great for all day fit. Downloaded the app and I was instantly impressed and sold on these. You can chose many sound EQ options but my favorite is the Personal EQ setting. It is I’ll guide you through LOW to HIGH frequency sounds and you simply adjust to the level you hear (or want to hear more) through each level and at the end you have a person EQ for your own ears. This makes listening to music very enjoyable. You can switch between personal EQ and user created or even genera created EQ’s with just a tape. So for you Podcast lovers out there there is a voice EQ that makes a pleasing difference. The battery life is great at around 14 hours of use all depending on the volume level you choose. I love doing my research and picking the best products with my money. So you will not and cannot go wrong with these wireless earbuds.

    A Fitness Lover’s Favorite Headphones

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Sound quality, Use with apps, Wiring
    Cons mentioned:
    Charger

    I am a pretty active person and have used different wireless headphones over the years. My time with the Tarah Pro’s have shown these are the overall best ones I have owned! PROS: - The look of these are well done. The fabric cord on it give it a higher quality feel and the headphones and controls feel very sturdy and capable of intense use. - I know it’s small but the carrying case is great! It’s really convenient to have the charger and headphones all in a case together rather than dangling around in my backpack. - The App for these are a must have! The default sound profile is fine but being able to edit them with your custom profile or Jaybird’s profile take the sound to a new level! I am really impressed with how great these sound, the best sound quality I have had from earbuds. - Controls are really easy to use. Just three buttons and you can double tap them to skip songs and what not. - The versatility with how you can wear them is great. It comes with a small connector so the cord can be tight against your head and it also has two different styles which I will describe below. - Battery life is fanastic! 14 hours on a single charge is what I want because I like using them at work or the gym and I don’t want to constantly be recharging them. I can get two full days of work and fitness before having to charge them! FIT: - Fit is to important with any earbud headphones and it took me some adjusting with these but they work great. I had to switch the sized earbuds to the right one for me and after that they were nice and snug. It’s important to note these have two “styles” to them. The earbud can rotate where the cord runs underneath your ear or up and over the top of your ear. When using them while running, lifting weights, and playing sports I noticed that the “downward” design were more likely to make the earbuds feel like they were falling out and overall I noticed it more. However, the “upward” design worked flawlessly - they truly felt like I had true wireless earbuds as I did not notice the cord even and the earbuds never budged. So overall I’d say the downward style is best for easy use listening and the upward design is better for working out. CONS: - I really like how small and easy the charger is to use but at the same time it’s a proprietary cord that if I lost I’d have to buy a new one directly from Jaybird. A USB-C charger would have been nice from that perspective. - Maybe I have to tinker with the settings in the app but the sound for them turning off and on are quiet and I can’t always tell if I did it right or not. BOTTOM LINE: Although “true wireless” earbuds are more appealing these days - I don’t think any of them can come remotely close in terms of battery life, durability, and sound quality. These are an outstanding purchase if you are on the market for wireless earbuds to use for casual use or while being active.

    Top-tier performance w/nearly flawless execution

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Battery life, For working out, Sound quality

    Pros: - Comfort is tied with my other #1 priority: sound quality--these excel in that area (as Jaybird is typically renowned to be)! In short, these are truly outstanding whether for workouts or not--capable of full-bodied, detailed, un-muddied musical reproduction with extensive sound signature customization options that go even further in the companion Jaybird app (if you want it) - I'm a believer--the fabric-wrapped cord really IS much more comfortable against the skin than the plastic/rubber/silicone wrapped wires I'm used to - Not quite true wireless, but so light it's easy to forget the connecting cable and even the control module are dangling between the earpieces - I have no way to verify Jaybird's 14 straight hours of battery life; but after leaving them on all night with my phone happily streaming away on a charging mat, they were still well above 40% charged the next morning - Integrated gel ear-tip/wings created a secure and very comfortable fit that nearly matched those of the Comply, foam-style tips I've used before (like on Jaybird's own X2) - Speed cinch disc does a good job of keeping the excess cord from really intruding on a run - Simple, hassle-free Bluetooth connection with a voice prompt that sounded about the most lifelike of any I've ever heard in a headphone - Take them out of your ears and let the magnetic backs of the earpieces connect to automatically pause your music--nice! Plus now they're connected around your neck and less likely to fall off if you need to move around or talk to others unimpeded - "Twist-fit" is a simple tweak but it takes the guess-work out of ear-fin placement for below or around-the-ear fit--just rotate the ear-fin until it stops and put it back in your ear in the new position - If you want to truly personalize the sound profile of your buds, the Jaybird app steps you through a 2-minute "hearing test" that adjusts frequency response (cuts and boosts) to your unique physiology...YMMV; I didn't really care for the results myself, but others might really dig the effect Cons: - Okay I get it--magnets are cool--but a proprietary and laughably short magnetic charging cable/dock is my #1 bone of contention with the Tarah Pro...when you finally DO burn through that mammoth 14 hour battery capacity, you better have the dock handy or you're COMPLETELY out of luck because NOTHING ELSE will charge these! - Okay, I get it--magnets are cool--but you can't just let the earpieces fall down around your neck and expect them to connect to each other. The magnetic backs are on the opposite sides of the eartips that are already facing inward--twisting the earpieces around so the backs touch ends up leaving a slightly uncomfortable, inward-curved control puck against your neck, and generally feeling/looking kind of awkward because the rest of the cable (especially anything beyond the cinch) remains in place...see the attached photo - The Tarah can maintain 2 Bluetooth connections simultaneously but the Tarah Pro cannot??? I don't need dual-connectivity that often, but it would be nice to use these with my laptop while still having the option to answer a phone call - The included coin-purse style carrying pouch is a nice touch but feels a bit 'meh' for a premium product, and is just a tad too small for my tastes--try to shove that maddeningly proprietary charging pigtail/dock in there along with the headphones and it was sometimes resistant to closing--the semi-rigid carrying case from the X2 was more protective and more spacious - Marketing materials touted the reflective threads in the fabric cord covering the cable; trust me, we found the effect WAY too subtle to be considered a "safety feature" so make sure you've got something else retro-reflective on if you run at night - The Jaybird app actually has some deep customization options for sound profiles, but the "Music" tab and its associated playlists will only work with Spotify to play ANYTHING from within the app itself - It could just be me, but I miss the cable clips from the older Jaybird model to get that totally streamlined, "completely-up-against-the-head" fit with the cord--the cable cinch ends up leaving a rat's-tail dangling back there that, while light and certainly not sticky due to the fabric covering, is still noticeable nonetheless - The flanged design of the Twist-Fit ear-fin/ear-tip is more secure than a typical silicone ear-tip for IEMs, but it's just not QUITE as secure or QUITE as comfortable as using Comply-style foam tips, especially after a sweaty workout - Even in the app, there is no option to use the built-in mic for hear-through; as moderately sound-isolating earbuds, you will simply need to be more wary of your surroundings Summary review: I came to Jaybird's latest premium offering after many happy years with a pair of their own X2s--themselves chosen at the time from a fairly crowded field for their well-regarded sound and build quality. In nearly every respect, I consider these a very, VERY worthy upgrade. Sound quality is exceptional as is in-ear comfort and the Twist-Fit gimmick is actually kind of handy for allowing me to easily adjust the ear-fins to accommodate an under- or over-the-ear fit depending on my mood. The extensive, and even kind of fun, customization options in the Jaybird app let me fine-tune the sound profile (and save as many different versions as I'd like) to match my mood or source material--but the nice part is that the Pros till sound great in their "flat" or non-enhanced state. The companion app also nails it by having a full user's/features guide and troubleshooting section right in the app so I don't have to log into some support website for those few times I need a memory jog on button taps, presses, or pairing difficulties. I can't speak to some of the things you'll need to take on faith--IPX7; okay, at the very least, I have some measure of assurance that I won't sweat these buds to death. 14 hour battery life--well, I can barely stay awake that long in a single day, much less listen to music in one sitting--so the likelihood that these will retain enough juice to last through a week's worth of workouts before I remember to throw them on the charger is probably pretty high. The magnetic backs (and music auto-pause upon "magnetizing") are a nice touch, I suppose. But in execution, they require a bit more effort to get resting on your neck just right than maybe they need to, especially with those curved controls--a more svelte but straight control box would have make this design choice/feature feel a little less awkward in practice. In the end, these seem to be well-crafted, exceptionally fine-sounding earbuds/IEMs that would be just as home in your ears as daily listeners as they would be during a workout. The omission of foam ear-tips in favor of the all-in-one silicone ear-fin/ear-tips is understandable, I guess, to provide for that Twist-Fit feature--which actually has its uses--so it's a somewhat forgivable compromise. Were it not for that dodgy, ULTRA-SHORT, magnetic and 100% proprietary charging cradle--which I'll admit looks cool and is super-easy to use--this would be an almost perfect, end-game set of workout phones. If you're familiar with Jaybird's ear-fin style and don't find the fit/feel objectionable (and there are those who do), I definitely think you'll like what the Tarah Pros have to offer.

    I really like these head phone and was excited to get them but I keep having problems. Mainly in the fact that the control covering keeps coming off I was just sent a replacement pair and the same issue is already happening again few months after I got it. I am not one to be rough with my things and have not taken them through any rough conditions/weather. I use these mostly at work I work in an ac environment. I typically dont even use the controls except to turn them on or off. Not to mention good luck if your charger get lost or stolen like mine. they dont have any replacements and 3rd party will sell them at around $50+. Lots of great features but I wish it was just a quality product especially for the amount of money you pay.

    Easy to setup; Easy to listen to.

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Battery life, Sound quality, Use with apps

    Jaybird Tarah Pro Wireless - Easy setup and controls, comfortable, and very nice sound quality. These Jaybird’s Pro series earbuds are going to become our family favorites. (In our house, unless you’re hiding them, the better earbuds put on some miles.) It’s unlikely that anyone is going to damage them, because they are obviously ruggedly built, with robust looking cables between the earpieces, and Jaybird promising they are IPX7 WATERPROOF rated. (Not for submersion in any water, but rain and sweat won’t harm them, and rinsing is OK.) SOUND: These are very natural and accurate. I listened to a mix of my music while I wrote this review. The Tarah Pros captured the range of sounds in every recording, revealing the significant improvement in bass in today’s modern recordings compared to that from my 60s/70s classic folk/rock/pop music. The best earbuds and headphones shouldn’t make everything same the sound. The Jaybird App can make a BIG difference with its fully customizable EQ or the App’s selection of presets. Try “warmth” preset to bring the bass up and push the treble down. I definitely preferred my personal adjustments and I can save them. Laura Nyro never sounder better and she and Marshall Crenshaw were smooth as silk. It was obvious that the Jaybird Tarah’s have a very smooth treble response. Detailed but not excessive. Bass was tight and very accurate. Pump it up with the equalizer, if you insist, but playing Cream’s “Badge” or New Order’s “World” were fun to hear again with their strong bass lines and neither needed any help. FEATURES / SETUP: Use the provided cable+cradle for charging. The APP can locate your Jaybird Earbuds if you enable this feature of the earbuds (uses some added battery energy). The control module on the connecting wire serves multiple tasks, including volume+/-, skip/previous. Double tapping the center power button called up Siri on my iPhone 6. Otherwise it accepts or hangs up calls if a call is coming through. There are 3 sizes of eartips with integrated wings. Best bass requires a tight ear seal, so larger eartips are best as long as you’re comfortable. The earpiece design includes wings, but wing size increase with tip size, so mixing isn’t possible. The unique cradle for charging is easy, reliable, but it could get misplaced around the house . . . and there is no alternative way to charge. COMPLAINTS: My iPhone 6 has an older Bluetooth technology and I'm not sure it's 100% compatible with the Jaybird App, because I got occasional, random disconnects only after I loaded it. It was always easy to restart the music, so I’m not reducing my score. I prefer a few more eartip styles for more customization, but those are readily available from 3rd parties. Everything else was impressive. SUMMARY: These are very competitive earbuds and everything about the usability, construction and sound quality promises they will stay among my favorites. The App’s EQ feature ensures I can get a sound profile that I prefer. I’ll be recommending these to family and friends.

    Wireless earphones are a dime a dozen. You have so many choices in a few price ranges. But these are top tier. So lets discuss the Jaybird Tarah Pro headphones. So if you are like me you think most if not all headphones are the same. Well that is wrong and the Tarah Pro is a perfect example of why that is. You get everything you need out of the box. The headphones themselves the proprietary charging cradle, And silicon ear tips for those who need a smaller or bigger size. A small pouch was also included which is a nice inclusion. These are premium headphones. They are super comfortable and have a corded design which I appreciate. The braided cable means you won't get them tangled and they are highly durable. They are sweat proof and waterproof so theres no need to worry about subjecting them to a grueling workout. I have used mine for almost a week and a half. I charged them full out of the box and I have used them for an hour each day and I still have 40 percent battery life left. I love the design of the earbud it is a unique design that fits directly into the ear canal for a snug fit. This in my opinion makes for a better experience. You are able to fully enjoy your audio content. I do not blast my music and set it to about 53 percent and I find it to be an exceptional experience. The outer part of the round tips of the earbuds are magnetic and are strong enough to remain secure and not fall off your neck. The manual volume control is located on the right side along with the cal answer button. For me phone calls are good enough. I am soft spoken so I often am told that I can not be heard. I find myself raising my voice more often so I can be heard. But that isn't an issue for me because I am often in noisy environments. Call quality is crystal clear no hissing or audio popping. There is also an application you can download for an enhanced experience. I must say the usefulness of the app is refreshing. Some manufacturers create an app that is essentially useless and includes a setting or two. That isn't the case here.You are able to add custom sound profiles, download sound profiles from other users and link your spotify account to the app. There are also play lists of other users you can enjoy if you choose to do so. I do not want to go on forever but to summarize my review these are premium headphones with lots of great features. These are actually useful for when you lead an active lifestyle and can keep up with you. Battery life is great, Sound quality is phenomenal. Overall I am thoroughly pleased with my Tarah Pros. If you want a premium set headphones these are the ones you are looking for.

    I’ve owned several pair of Jaybird headphones over the last few years – from the original Jaybirds, the X3, the Tarah and now the Tarah Pros. These units are little different than anything else I’ve used from Jaybird – and they come equipped with some new useful features. Pros • Great battery life – 14 hours • Most comfortable jaybirds I’ve used • Gel ear tips create a secure fit and easy to use • Speed cinch cable management is the best so far • Braided cable keeps from sticking to your neck – very comfortable • Magnetic snaplock feature is convenient – secures units around your neck and auto-pauses music • Water proof Cons • Different charger that any previous Jaybird headset Overall, very happy with the Pros – sounds is great and the accompanying mobile app has some useful audio profiles. What’s really cool is that the profile actually saves to the headphones themselves. That means once I set the profile on mobile, then use them later with my laptop – I get the same perfect setup. Excellent feature!

    The sound quality is absolutely out of this world. The noise isolation is great. The build quality is good. My only complaints are: The device will sporadically play a high pitched buzz when attempting to connect and the only remedy is a soft reset (connect to dock) because the buttons are unresponsive. The battery life is definitely not 14 hours. 10 hours might even be a stretch. Even at low to moderate volume, the device burns through its battery. I would estimate I get 8 hours to a charge. The surface finishes have started to tarnish after normal wear and tear (see photos). There seems to be no consistency to how long you need to press the middle button to boot up device. Sometimes it takes only a couple seconds, sometimes it takes as much as 7 or 8 seconds to boot up. The same goes for holding the buttons to skip forward or backward between songs.

    Quality Sound in a bluetooth package!

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Sound quality
    Cons mentioned:
    Noise cancellation

    The Jaybird - Tarah Pro Wireless In-Ear Headphones - Black/Flash offers high-quality sound from this Bluetooth enabled headphones. Touting versatile wearability, the Jaybirds can be worn in ear or over ear depending upon your choosing. These headphones are comparable to the many other brands and options available, however, I found the Jaybirds to have better sound and noise-reduction than other top brands. I did find the braided cord to be a bit obnoxious when it would rub against my face or shirt due as you could hear every movement due to the noise-reduction feature (head noise). The wear and fit is good, however, I found that my ears became sensitive after about a hour of wear and I needed to take them out for a few minutes to give my ears time to rest. This is just me as my ears do this with most ear bud type headphones, so it may not impact other users - just noting it for the record. PROS - High quality sound - Significan volumn and control - Bluetooth syncs almost instantly for easy pairing and set up - Noise-canceling aspect if solid and minimizes exterier noise without blocking necessary sound - Magnetic ear buds and charinging dongle makes for easy storage and secure charging - Charging dongle is USB so it is nearly universally compatable - Braided cord helps ensure long life - Up to 14 hours of usage - more than enough for all day usage - Quick charging ensures your headphones are ready when you are (5 mins = 2 hours approximately) - 4 sized of earbud covers to help ensure the perfect fit for anyone CONS - USB Charger is very short (about 2-3") and could be problematic for those who need a longer cord for any reason - Braided cord/noise-reduction feature gives head noise from rubbing and can be a bit distracting - The over the ears option put the control right behind your ear and makes it hard to use and a bit uncomfortable. Excellent product and sound. Highly recommended with the few notes I experienced above.

    Buttons

    I really loved these headphones, they were everything I wanted. A cool color, long battery life, they stayed in placed relatively well, sound was great as well. The issue is this, the silicone in the button housing started coming up. Which to me was odd, as I never used the buttons themselves for anything except to power on and power off the device. The warranty on these guys is great, I hit up Jaybird customer support and after exchanging a few emails and photos they sent me a replacement. Great! Well it would’ve been, but this pair started having the same issue just 1 month after I got them. Not customer support says it’s because I’m wearing cologne or body spray. However, I had to correct them. I do not use any sprays of any variety. I legit only use deodorant. So their reasoning for why this was happening fell flat. If the silicone had just popped up, I would’ve been more convinced to believe that maybe the sunscreen I wore would’ve maybe had an effect on the silicone. However the silicone was warped and misshapen, as if it over heated and caused this happen. Warranty, was still really good. I contacted them, and directly through chat they were able to help me. They were going to send me another pair, but asked them if I could get credit to another set of headphones. Since this is the second pair this happened with. They could not, but they said they well upgrade me to the Run XT for free and ship those out. So I’m getting a free pair of True Wireless Ear Buds. Let’s see how that goes. Sorry for any typos, I did this on my phone and I’m too lazy to go back and make sure it was perfect. Hope I got the point across though.

    Another good pair of jaybird earbuds

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Battery life, Sound quality, Use with apps

    The battery life is great and the quick charge, sound quality is amazing with the app. I like how The earbuds can rotate to change positions on wearing them under or over the ear. The downside to mine is the cover on remote is starting to peel off. And then he said it has Bluetooth 5.0, I wish the Runs would have it.

    Pros mentioned:
    Battery life

    I’ve had these headphones for about a week and they are spectacular. 14 hours of battery life, Bluetooth 5.0, which makes it compatible with my iPhone X. It’s very comfortable thanks to the ear gels provided, which makes it a lot better than the old Jaybird x3’s I used to have. My little gripe about these headphones is the connection. I sometimes hear the audio cut in and out a few times when paired to my watch and my phone. Hopefully that will be taken cared of in a software update. But so far, I’m very impressed with these headphones.

    Awesome Sports/Gym Earphones

    Pros mentioned:
    Battery life

    Inside the box comes the Tarah Pro along with all its accessories neatly packaged. There is the usual paperwork, a nice carrying pouch, the proprietary charging attachment as well as 3 sizes of silicone ear tips, that are quite comfortable when inserted into your ears. They have a good snug fit and stay in your ears quite well during various activities. The earphones appear to be well built and the materials seem quite durable and should last for quite a while especially since they are sweat/water resistant. They have a cloth-like material that seems to be carrying out double duty. The cloth reduces/eliminates the sticking to sweaty skin issue that plagues rubber material as well it contains reflective material that would assist in your visibility if you jog with these at night. Another addition is that the earphones are magnetic which allows them to stay safely connected around your neck but also once together they automatically pause your music playback. Another impressive point is that they are advertised as giving 14 hours of continuous music playback. In my personal test, I was able to squeeze out around 16 hours of use over a two day period before needing to be charged again.Impressive! Soundwise these earphones deliver, just like Jaybird always has. I have the X3 and the Tarah pro has outdone it even without the the Jaybird companion app that allows you to mess around to your heart’s content with the equalizer. The sound isolation is pretty decent and you will still be able to barely hear your surroundings with no music playing. The Tarah’s microphone ( part of the in line remote) is not bad but it’s also not great, most of the times the voices comes through clearly but a big factor is where you position the remote. If you plan to be very active, most persons utilize the cord management system and end up placing the hub behind their ears therefore affecting how your voice travels to the microphone. You could forgo the that scene and instead bring it to the front of your face but then the chord would be dangling all over. This is another solid entry from Jaybird and despite being aimed at the sports and fitness crowd this is a good pair of bluetooth earbuds for anyone.

    Ultimate Wireless Sport Headphones

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Battery life, Sound quality, Use with apps

    Jaybird has a reputation for quality, so I expected a lot from their flagship Tarah Pro Wireless Headphones. Not only did their performance meet my expectations, but they exceeded them in every way. They are expensive but are worth the price if you want the ultimate active lifestyle in-ear headphones. They sound great, have an incredibly long 14 hour battery life, and can survive anywhere you need them to go. SOUND QUALITY: I listened to many hours of music and found the sound to be full range, detailed, and accurate. They put out a surprising amount of bass for such a compact design. If you are upgrading from the earbuds that came with your phone, then you will really hear what you have been missing. The Jaybird App has several different EQ presets available to help customize the sound. There is also a customizable EQ, so that you can adjust the sound to your individual preference and to accommodate various content. This is critical because content can be mixed at such different levels that adjusting the EQ can help greatly with performance. Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility allows a higher bit rate signal that will sound better because it is less compressed than the earlier Bluetooth standards. DESIGN: I am very impressed with the feature set, design, and build quality. They have some very neat features that make using and wearing them a pleasure. The earpieces are magnetic and snap together so that when they are not in use they securely hang around my neck. The Speed Cinch allows me to tighten the cord, so I can keep it tight around my neck and shoulders. The cord is made of a comfortable fabric that is also reflective. The in-line remote is close to the earpiece so it is not dangling on the back of my neck. The buttons feel solid and durable. They are water resistant (IPX7) and can handle exposure to the elements. I am reluctant to take some of my other expensive headphones on the go because I am worried about them getting damaged. I do not have that concern with these headphones. They can be worn under or over the ear. I find that over the ear provides a more secure fit. Under the ear allows easier access to the inline remote. They are very lightweight and the ear gels make them so comfortable that it almost feels like I have nothing on. A huge benefit is the incredibly long 14 hour battery life, as opposed to most other compact in-ear headphones that top out at 5 to 6 hours. It only takes about 2 hours to fully charge them, and a quick 5 minute charge can power them for 2 hours. I am able to confirm that the battery lasts as long as the 14 hours it is rated. After using it for about 2 hours a day, I have only had to charge them once after about one week of use. They use a proprietary charger that magnetically snaps into the remote to charge. This method is effective and looks very elegant when connected. Per the brochure I received from Jaybird, the benefit to doing it this way is that the inline remote can be made lighter and thinner because some of the circuitry is incorporated into the charger. This also helps with the waterproofing by not having an exposed charging port on the headphones. The drawback to this of course is that if you lose or damage the charger then you will have to get a replacement from Jaybird A soft pouch is included that fits both the headphones and charger. VERDICT: I give the Jaybird Tarah Pro Headphones top marks for design, sound quality, durability, and comfort. The battery lasts incredibly long, they sound good, are comfortable to wear, and are virtually impervious to water. If you need headphones that can survive extreme conditions, then they are everything you would want and more.

    I wanted a way to listen to music while blocking some road/wind noise on my motorcycle. Originally bought a Cardo but wasn't satisfied with how loud I had to turn up the unit and the lack of noise protection. I returned the Cardo and had tried several other products unsuccessfully. True wireless earplugs wouldn't stay in my ears while putting on my helmet and I was concerned about them dropping out. Many other brands are too big to fit under my helmet. The Tarah Pro stayed in my ears well and the cord reduces my worry about loss while riding. The sound is good and offers some noise protection. I do have to remove the ear padding in my Shoei and the control unit isn't super easy to use with gloves but the package works well overall. Also, I bought them on sale so a great value.

    I loved so much about these headphones, but after wearing them for long runs, my ears were sore. For me, the barrel that sits in the ear was too large. I actually found the Tarah smaller and more comfortable for my ears. The Tarah Pro has the switch fit, which I loved, but the Tarah stays put in my ears and doesn't hurt, so I went with the Tarah instead of the Tarah pro and haven't looked back.
