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!
- 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.
As always, hit the widget below to enter the contest. But, there's a catch this go: four of the winners will be selected via Rafflecopter and announced on the Android Police podcast, this Thursday, July 18th. The fifth and final winner will be selected from the podcast chatroom by Jaybird representative Melissa Jo Glover live on the air. So if you want to win, then you'll have to listen live!
As stated above, the contest winners will be announced during the Android Police podcast, which starts Thursday at 5:00PM PT/8:00PM ET. Get your entry in before Thursday at 12:00AM CT (midnight Wednesday) the day of the podcast for your chance to win!
