There are two things you need to know about this deal. One, the Midnight Black model of the Jaybird X2's is on sale for $124.89 on Amazon, and two, that Artem loves the headphones this company makes. In fact, he loves them so much that if he saw you wearing them on a train, he would likely approach you and strike up a conversation about how much he loves Jaybird headphones.
In that conversation he would probably mention that he owns a website called Android Police, on which he reviewed the previous generation of said headphones in an extremely detailed 3,000 word article. Read More
We've had Bluetooth technology for the better part of two decades now, so it's surprising that it's still so hard to find a decent pair of headphones that use it. One of the more consistently good brands for wireless headphones, at least of the sporty variety, has been Jaybird. The company's using CES to show off the newest entries in its product lineup, and by "newest," I mean it will be three to six months at the earliest before you see either of them. Meet the Jaybird Freedom, an ostensibly new design (despite the fact that the company has used the "Freedom" name on models before), and the Jaybird X3, the latest revision of the popular original and the more recent X2.

Headphone deals are all over the place on Amazon and various other retailers' sites this weekend. But most deals we've seen so far are about wired headphones, which aren't all that practical if you don't want to be tied down to your phone by wires. Bluetooth is better, but switching to wireless usually involves some loss of quality, limited battery life, and a hike in price. Not so much with this BÖHM set.
These headphones usually cost around the $100 mark, they connect to your devices via Bluetooth 4.0 or an included 3.5mm cable. They have some playback control buttons, rotating ear cups, and what seems to be a nice leather headband. Read More
Something about Thanksgiving seems to do weird things to retailers every year. They drop their prices and their customers show up in the dead of the night acting like werewolves during a full moon. Personally, I think the stuffing is to blame. I mean, have you ever taken a close look at that stuff? It already looks like leftovers the first time you serve it.
Anyways, Walmart seems to have eaten a lot of stuffing, because they have all kinds of deals going on. Read More
We dig V-MODA's Crossfade headphones, and our love for them didn't fade from when we reviewed them and through all the giveaways and deals we've shared about them. They seem to be popular with you too, since the deals we post are always well received, whether they're for the LP over-ear or the M80 on-ear models.
V-MODA is back with a design we'll all surely appreciate as Android users. It's the Crossfade Wireless, and like the name suggests, this is a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones that can connect with two devices simultaneously. But don't worry, you'll be able to hook it up with a wire, should you run out of battery or want a latency-free audio listening experience. Read More
I may have more than half a dozen Bluetooth earphones lying around home and at work, but my personal preference is almost always skewed toward Plantronics. The BackBeat GO 2 has been a mainstay in my purse for almost two years, and the BackBeat Fit is my absolute favorite workout headset. Both provide a great balance of features, battery life, and portability that fits with my needs. That's why I was eager to see what the company has in store with its newest foray, and the BackBeat SENSE didn't disappoint me. But before I go into my thoughts on this pair of headphones, let's start with the specs. Read More
Sol Republic has quickly carved out a place in the consumer audio market since their founding in 2011, so it was just a matter of time before they would offer a set of Bluetooth in-ear headphones. Shadow is their initial take on the category and I’ve been testing it out for the better part of two weeks. My overall take is that Shadow is exactly what I expected from Sol Republic: good looking, well built, solid albeit consumer-oriented audio, and fairly priced.
Before we get into the nitty gritty details, here’s a breakdown of what’s ahead.
Anyone in the market for a decent pair of Bluetooth headphones may be pleased to know they can currently get a pair on Amazon for $19.99. The GOgroove BlueVIBE EXS+ has been temporarily marked down from its usual price of $79.99, which amounts to a pretty enticing 75% off.
These headphones come from the same folks who brought us that adorable Bugdroid speaker, and while they won't blow your minds, the reviews are generally positive.
The deal ends tomorrow or when the seller runs out of stock, whichever happens first. These headphones aren't Amazon Prime eligible, but the shipping is still free. Read More
As a platform, Android Wear is in its infancy. Even Google itself is still figuring out some of the applications and limits of Android in a wrist watch form factor. But that's not stopping them from adding in a bunch of goodies, even at this early stage. Google's Director of Engineering for Android Wear David Singleton spoke with Cnet on the subject, and let loose a few snippets that should excite Wear fans.
First and foremost: Android Wear will be updated with the capability to pair with Bluetooth headphones. This functionality will be added specifically to allow for local music playback, which would let users store and play music without having their phone or tablet nearby. Read More
Looking for some Bluetooth headphones that can survive your workout routine? Then you might want to swing by Amazon's one-day special site, Gold Box. Today's deal is the Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth headphones for $39.99, over 40% off. In addition to A2DP stereo music support and voice calls, these guys have a lifetime warranty against sweat and are designed to stay secure during movement.
This is the older design for Jaybird's Bluetooth buds, more recently replaced by the Freedom Sprint (which still retail for $100). In his 2011 review, Cameron Summerson said the Freedom headphones were great for listening to music, but their voice calling feature left a lot to be desired, with the other party complaining of poor sound (probably due to microphone placement).
