If you're sick of snagging the cable from your earbuds on everything possibly imaginable, then there's but one solution for you: a set of Bluetooth 'buds. Ridding yourself of those pesky cables has been proven to improve one's quality of life by up to 19%, according to a recent study that I just made up.

But seriously, a set of Bluetooth buds/headphones can easily make life less annoying. And while we've reviewed several different sets over the last year (give or take), the Bluebuds X from Jaybird ($170) just may be the "best of" in that realm – Artem definitely loved them. For good reason, of course – they're chock-full of useful features and just all around good design.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

  • Travis Taskey
  • Andrew Allen
  • Mike Jackson
  • Theresa Janke

And the winner chosen randomly from the podcast chatroom:

  • Dustin Lu


If you're not familiar with the Bluebuds X, here's the need-to-know: they have up to eight hours of constantly-playing battery life, can pair with up to eight devices, sport a three-button remote, are built to take a beating, and – most importantly – sound great. They also come with Jaybird's exclusive "secure fit" earpieces that hold the buds in place during vigorous activities like working out. Pair that with a lifetime warranty against sweat, and you've got yourself a set of buds that are made to be used under even the worst of circumstances.

    defenitely the battery life and bluetooth capabilities. my current bluetooth buds are dying faster than i would like, and only one ear works on them now. they have lasted me 3 years, but its about time they go.

  • faceless128

    i'm in!

  • Shane Jensen

    I have found the battery does not last 8 hours. The battery life is closer to 6 from what I have seen. I have owned these for about 1 month now and love them. The audio almost never drops and I can be well over thirty feet from the phone and they still work.
