JayBird X2 Unboxing

JayBird X2 Unboxing

JayBird X2 offers impressively quality sound (one of the best we’ve tested) especially for a wireless headset that’s extremely compact in size. Battery life should last 8 hours of continuous listening. New and free on the X2 is COMPLY premium sport foam ear tips (we had to purchase this after market).

The patented secure-fit on the Bluebird X was good but not great so we’re happy to see an improvement in the thickness and design of the fins. Whether you wear the X2 over or under-ear, the fins should keep it secure for every day commute or the most extreme workout possible. We know because we’ve tested the X2 in every imaginable scenario.

Singnal Plus is a key feature simply because no matter where your device is on your body, it eliminates signal loss especially when you’re moving about indoors or outdoors. Speaking of moving around, these headphones are also sweat-proof.

Finally, Shift is JayBird’s custom configuration and the company’s own implementation of the native Bluetooth SBC codec. So far, we’re impressed with SHIFT’s delivery of sound quality --- so much that our JH Audio 16 custom headset is being benched.

Jaybird X2 wireless next-gen earbuds have improved sound, design

Jaybird has released its newest pair of earbuds, the Jaybird X2. This model is the second-generation version of Jaybird’s previous BlueBuds X sport headphones; the company’s CMO Rene Oehlerking says Jaybird has “improved on BlueBuds X in every way.” The new X2 earbuds are wireless and, like the BlueBuds X, designed for “sport” users. Users will find that both sound quality and design have been improved in the latest generation model, which has launched so far through the maker’s own website and Best Buy, though the company is planning an expanded launch some time next month.

Jaybird Reign review: in the ‘Go Zone’ of fitness wearables

Jaybird Reign review: in the ‘Go Zone’ of fitness wearables

At CES 2014, we named the Jaybird Reign our best wearable of the show. That wasn’t because it was pretty, had a flashy screen, or even had some other hardware tweak we hadn’t seen yet. Reign got our award based on their software, which promises a singular, holistic approach to your health status. With smart features and Jaybird’s great hardware history, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the Reign for quite some time. In a world with so many other fantastic fitness wearables, was it worth the wait?

Jaybird Reign lands in the Go-Zone on October 26

Jaybird Reign lands in the Go-Zone on October 26

The world is not short of fitness wearables, and while Jaybird's Reign managed to impress us back at CES 2014 in January, it's only this month that the wrist-worn wearable is finally hitting shelves. Packing the ability to track Heart Rate Variability (HRV) - which Jaybird says gives results 99-percent accurate to those you'd get from a medical EKG - the Reign introduces a new metric dubbed "Go-Score" which, rather than tracking historic performance, claims to actually tell you how ready for activity your body is.

Jaybird Reign, a hands-on with the best health monitor we’ve seen yet

When it comes to tracking health information, we’ve seen a lot of contenders this week in Las Vegas. CES brought a ton of wearables to our wrists, and collectively, we’re still up in the air. One bright spot was the Jaybird Reign, which doesn’t bring anything special in regard to form factor, but what they do with your info is interesting. We got a quick hands-on here at CES 2014, and in examining the wristwear, we found it something we’d likely use.

Jaybird SB1 Sportsband Bluetooth Headphones review

Jaybird SB1 Sportsband Bluetooth Headphones review

Announced last month, Jaybird's SB1 Sportsband Bluetooth Headphones may be intended for gym-goers - in fact they come with a lifetime guarantee against sweat - but with discrete styling and a reasonably budget $89 MRSP are likely to appeal to those nowhere near the treadmills. Are the Jaybird's cheap and cheerful, or does audio quality let them down? Check out the SlashGear review after the cut.
