Jaybird X3 is the 3rd generation X-series headphone, and is an improvement over its much acclaimed predecessor, the X2. It also offers less bulk, bigger sound, longer battery life and more secure fit. Being a “sport” oriented headphone, and with double hydrophobic nano coating and redesigned super-tight seams, X3 is designed to sweatproof, waterproof and withstand the abuse during intensive workout. Designed to be helmet-compatible too. Comes with wings in 3 size, so it is unlikely that you won’t find a good fit.
It works with Jaybird’s Mysound App for customizing the way your X3 sounds and save those custom sound profiles to your buds. No matter what device it is connected with or what music you listen to, you are in complete control of its sound. You get a good 8 hours of playback time from a single full charge. And only 20 min of quick charge gets you a full hour of playtime. Jaybird X3 is available in 2 colors, blackout and sparta.
Consider Jaybird’s other notable headphone, the Freedom In-Ear before making your purchase decision. Another popular sport oriented headphones is Plantronic BackBeat’s FIT Sport Wireless In-Ear Headphone, which offers more security thanks to its headband. If you require active noise cancellation, then consider the best-in-class Bose QuietComfort 20 In-Ear.
