Jaybird X3


Audio company Jaybird is as focused as they come, so you immediately know what you're getting when it announces a new pair of headphones. Like all of its other headphones, such as the Jaybird X2 these are replacing, the X3 are headphones geared towards...

The Jaybird X3 are great-sounding sports headphones that offer a secure fit that won’t budge, no matter what you're doing.

Review: Jaybird X3s are the gold standard of sports bluetooth headphones


It took me a year, but I've transitioned from wired headphones to wireless bluetooth headphones. Going wireless is just more convenient and hassle free. No more tangles, no more getting snagged on exercise machines plus smartphones are starting to lose...

in the U.S. and Canada in November 2016, for a suggested retail price of $129.99. The wireless headphones will be available in four colors with metal accents: Blackout (Black and Silver), Sparta (White and Gold), Alpha (Military Green and Dark Chrome)...

Jaybird X3 review


Improving over both previous efforts, it's third time's a charm for Jaybird's X3.

Jaybird X3 review


The Jaybird X3, the third iteration of the company's popular sweat-resistant wireless sports headphone, is probably the best headphone the company has produced.

The Jaybird X3 wireless sports headphone is smaller than the X2, has improved battery life, costs less and sounds excellent for an in-ear Bluetooth headphone. It's sweat resistant and comes with a compact protective carrying pouch.

Don't lose the charging accessory or you'll have no way to charge the headphone; not as comfortable as the Bose SoundSport Wireless; noise-isolating design may be a safety issue for runners.

The Jaybird X3 is a significant improvement over the X2 and one of the top Bluetooth sports headphone currently available.

Jaybird X3 hands-on: A fabulous 8-hour wireless headset perfect for phones without jacks


The Apple iPhone 7, Moto Z, and others no longer include a 3.5mm headset jack. Jaybird released its newest generation Bluetooth headset and it is awesome.

Review: Jaybird's X3 Bluetooth earbuds are a great choice for pumping iron


The Jaybird X3s are a high-quality, yet affordable alternative to other fitness-oriented Bluetooth headphones, including Apple's AirPods and Beats products. Whether or not they're right for you, though, can be very subjective.

If you need a set of Bluetooth headphones and don't care about Apple-exclusive pairing options, the X3 is certainly a must-look, even if you don't care about exercise. They certainly have price going for them, since at $129.99 they're cheaper than...

Sound great for bluetooth, frustrating charger


I had the original version of these and I must say in terms of sound quality they have definitely improved, much better bass. They require quite a bit of trial and error when it comes to fitting, my advice is spend some time with this and try all...

Good headphone, good customer service


I bought these at a Best Buy for $130 and they worked extremely well for three weeks before they suddenly stopped charging. I contacted Jaybird Customer service (Best Buy only accepts returns 14 days after purchase) and after checking all the options...

Sound quality, battery life, comfortable, cheaper than the X2 was

Stopped charging after three weeks, still a bit large

Awesome in every way


The app makes the X3 over the top great- being able to make minute sound adjustments separates x3 from all others

Easy to pair. Great sound

No cons
