There are earbuds, and then there are earbuds. I'm not sure what I mean by that, but I do know Jaybird's X2 wireless Bluetooth earbuds are solidly in the latter category. They may cost as much as a budget phone, but they provide your ears with the kind of luxury treatment not commonly experienced by mortal man.

You're going to pay three digits for this product. The question is, how close can you get back to two? On Amazon right now, some units are available for as low as $113. That's significantly less than the $148 other colors still cost.


The cheapest model is Midnight, otherwise known as black. Storm (white) and Alpha (sort of a blackish green) are available for two dollars more.

With the X3 model still months out, these will remain the top of the line JayBird product for a bit longer. After that, we'll have to wait and see what effect, if any, Logitech has on the product line.
