Jaybird is pretty much athletic earbud royalty, and that reputation can come at a premium. The Jaybird X4 are, in my opinion, the most comfortable earbuds the company makes, and you can get 'em at an uncommon discount today: the buds are $30 off pretty much everywhere you can find them.

It's been a full week since our last deal round-up! In the intervening days, we've spotted a number of bargains you might want to know about: a solid price on Jaybird's Tarah earbuds, very cheap first-generation Echo Shows, and a couple of cool USB-C accessories in impulse buy territory. Read More
No one wants wires on their Bluetooth earbuds anymore, but that adds substantially to the cost. Don't fret, though. The Jaybird Run earbuds are on sale today, and they offer some great features for just $119.99. Read More
The Jaybird was one of the first big name accessory makers to jump on the true wireless bandwagon with the RUN, but it's been doing wired Bluetooth earbuds like the Tarah since then. Now, it's time for the RUN's successor. Jaybird's RUN XT earbuds have the same form factor as the RUN, but they're fully water-resistant. That's basically the only difference, and Jaybird is sticking with the same $179.99 price tag. Read More
Jaybird has had a busy few months. Following September's release of both the flagship X4 and budget Tarah, the company released last month the Tarah Pro, a second high-end headset that evidently shares enough in common with Jaybird's entry-level offering to share its name.
Tarah, it seems, is Jaybird's name for these devices' particular form factor, rather than an indicator of budget-friendliness. While the Pro take a number of design cues from the vanilla Tarah, they certainly don't take inspiration from their price: at $160, the Tarah Pro are Jaybird's most expensive earbuds. They're also the company's best. Read More

Jaybird is hitting it hard this year. Following the release of the X4 earbuds in September and the entry-level Tarah last month, the company is back at it with the Tarah Pro, a $159.99 pair of buds that can purportedly eke out a truly impressive 14 hours of playback on a single charge. Read More
As headphone jacks keep dying off, wireless headphones keep being relevant. And unless you're at peace with wrangling dongles, that means the average price of decent earbuds is rising. The days of swinging by Target on your way to the airport to grab a passable pair of $10 buds are numbered. C'est la vie.
Jaybird is aware of the rising cost of mobile audio accessories, though, which is why it's introduced the Tarah, a more affordable take on its X series of headphones with fewer bells and whistles. And while I applaud the company's initiative in introducing an entry-level Bluetooth headset to its lineup, at $99.99, the Tarah are plainly too expensive for what you get. Read More
