If you are an active person and want to listen to your music on your phone while being active, a good Bluetooth headphone set is a must. I had the pleasure to test the JayBird BlueBuds X headset and I have to say these JayBird BlueBuds X meet the requirement for an active person.
The JayBird BlueBuds was designed to have the best flexible opportunity to wear them in different ways. The two ear pieces are combined with a ribbon in which three button are integrated for volume, answering calls, forwarding etc. However the functions of the buttons on the ribbon between the two ear pieces were not all supported on the Windows Phone 8 Nokia Lumia 920 device.
One of the ear pieces (right or left depending how you wear them) has a small cap which you remove to charge up the head set. The charging cable is short and uses a Usb to Micro USB connection. The JayBird included cable is again a flat ribbon design but any USB to Micro Usb cable will work with the BlueBuds X. When fully charged the battery should last 8 hours.
The Bluetooth connectivity was very easy to set up and the sound quality was superb coming from my Windows Phone. Which included the phone calls I had and music I played.
The included sport ear cushions come in three different sizes to have the best locking fit possible. Also the tips come in three different sizes.
As mentioned before the earbuds are either right or left depending how you wear your JayBird BlueBuds X . Besides the normal wear of having them in your ear with the cable coming down there is an option to wear them in the X-fit mode, which is a tight fit over the ear and behind your head. However this requires you to remove the ear cushion and reverse them and use a small weaving clip to create the best fit for you. If you are successful, it took me a little while, you will have the perfect workout companion. It is a little tricky though each time to reverse back and forth.
All the detailed specifications are available on the JayBird website.
The JayBird BlueBuds X are highly recommended if you are very active person and are available in Midnight Black or Storm White for $169.95
