They're rugged, wireless, and sweatproof so they can handle whatever you toss at them. And five lucky readers, wherever they might be, will be able to grab a set for free. Read More
Fully wireless earbuds are almost certainly the future of in-ear audio. Apple's Airpods, for all the controversy around them, have kicked an entire industry into high gear trying to capitalize on their various shortcomings. One such competitor is Jaybird, now owned by Logitech, whose products we've given high marks in the past, particularly their X series of Bluetooth headphones. Jaybird headphones, though, have been of the wired-wireless variety, using a cable to keep the two earbuds attached to one another. The X2 and X3 were some of our favorite Bluetooth earbuds ever for their comfort, audio quality, and durability - Jaybird did quite a job with them, wire and all. Read More
Jaybird has made plenty of Bluetooth earbuds over the years, including the excellent Jaybird X3 earbuds from last year. Today, the company has announced a pair of new products. It's updating the Jaybird Freedom (which I wasn't as keen on) with the Freedom 2. It's also getting into this completely wireless earbud game with the Jaybird Run. Read More
Is your dear mother still listening to music with wires? Then as her offspring, you are duty bound to rectify that this Mother's Day... according to Jaybird. To help out with that, the Freedom and X3 Bluetooth earbuds are on sale for just $99.99 right now. Read More
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.

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
