Wireless headphones are more important than ever as phones start (inadvisably) ditching the venerable 3.5mm headphone jack. Jaybird has been on the scene for a few years, making some of the most highly regarded wireless earbuds you can get. The Jaybird X2 are particularly popular, and have been coming down in price a lot. Earlier this year the company launched the Freedom earbuds, which didn't get such high praise.
What everyone wanted was a successor to the X2, and now we have that with the Jaybird X3. The design has been refined, it's got some cool new software features, the sound is nicer, and the launch price is more competitive. Read More
The New Year is coming and I know that a lot of people are going to be renewing their goals to get fitter this year.

By now, no one should really be surprised at all the sales coming in to our emails and mailboxes. Interestingly, headphones seem to be a bit popular this time around. Seeing as a lot of people will be or are traveling, that makes sense. In today's deal, we have the recently announced JayBird X3 wireless in-ear headphones for $99.99 at Best Buy, a savings of $30.

Jaybird has been one of the most high-profile makers of Bluetooth headphones in recent years. In fact, Logitech bought the company for cash a while back. The Jaybird Freedom earbuds were alright, but not the most well-received product from Jaybird. A lot of people stuck with the Jaybird X2 to see what the X3 looked like. Now, the Jaybird X3 Wireless Sport Headphones are a thing. They'll be out next month for $129.99. Read More
Jaybird is known for making some of the best earbuds on the market, and the X2 is no exception. These earbuds have gone on sale more and more recently, with them dropping to $79.99 in July on Amazon Prime, and down to $69.99 at Best Buy a month later. Once again, the Jaybird X2 is only $79.99, this time at Target. Read More
Plantronics makes some of my personal favorite Bluetooth headphones and headsets. Although I use the BackBeat Fit while running and exercising, and the BackBeat Pro+ when I'm at my desk, the BackBeat GO 2 spends the most time of them all in my ears and around my neck. I wear it and listen to music and podcasts while walking, doing chores around the house, shopping, or performing any repetitive activity that doesn't require my utmost attention.
But the GO 2 headphones aren't perfect. Their size and weight balance could be better, their battery life should be around 4 hours but is now less than 3 hours after a couple of years of constant use, and their charging case is too small and kind of unreliable. Read More
In recent years, people have commonly associated Jaybird with quality; their earbuds are widely considered some of the best available on the market. However, good stuff comes at higher prices—or so we thought. Now, as part of Best Buy's 50-year anniversary sale, you can pick the Jaybird X2 earbuds up for just $69.99. Read More
Jaybird's sport-focused Bluetooth earbuds have been very popular in recent years, but they're also very expensive. The new Freedom earbuds are $200, for example. If you don't mind last year's model, the Jaybird X2 earbuds can be yours for the low, low price of $79.99. The catch: this deal is only available to Amazon Prime members. Read More
Despite being well received, the Jaybird X2 wireless earbuds caught some heat for not being significantly different from the first gen version. The new Jaybird Freedom (technically the Freedom F5) wireless earbuds are a different animal entirely. Jaybird has slimmed down the size of the earbuds to make them more comfortable, but says it hasn't sacrificed sound quality. They do look almost impossibly small. I've been taking these earbuds for a spin to see if they are worth the admittedly high $200 price tag. Read More
JayBird makes some of the best sport-focused Bluetooth headphones around, but they don't make them cheap. The X2 Sport model is normally $150 at retail, but Amazon has several different colors of them on sale today. The white version, and only the white version, is just $99 with free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime subscribers. The other colors are going for between $109 (black) and $134 (red), which is still a decent discount. Read More
