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


The gym-friendly Jaybird X3 wireless earphones high-quality audio in a comfortable, secure-fitting design.

Powerful audio performance with strong, rich bass and well-defined, bright highs. Ships with plenty of ear fit options. Solid companion app offers customizable EQ.

Left and right earpieces are not labeled. Easy to misfire with remote control layout.

Conclusions If you're looking for massive, unchecked bass performance to motivate you during your workout, look to the JLab Epic2 Bluetooth , but don't expect excellent balance like the X3 deliver. We're also fans of the Bose SoundSport Wireless , the...

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...

Consumer review by: Andyhatesrunning (

As Borat would say. "It's nice, I like!"


I really like these earphones. I've recently started running and wanted some good quality earphones to distract me from the fact that I'm running. The sound is great and even if it isn't for a particular song I can always change it via the app. I found...

Consumer review by: PhilS69 (

Not what I expected


To b honest if I was just using them as a general replacement of wired headphones I might rated them a 5 out of 10. However as they are suppose to be sports headphones I rate them at 2 out of 10 at best. When I run with them connected to my iWatch they...
