Jaybird X3 Headphones Review: Earbuds for the Active Traveler

Jaybird X3 Headphones won’t fall out of your ears, no matter what activities you do on your travels.

Jaybird X3 Headphones Review:

Price and Where to Buy: The Jaybird X3 Headphones are available on Amazon for $129.99.

How the Jaybird X3 Headphones Rate:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Anyone who does a high-impact workout while listening to music knows that it’s hard to find a pair of headphones that can keep up. The Jaybird X3 headphones certainly do—they stay in your ears no matter what. The headphones come with your choice of silicone or memory-foam ear tips that block out noise.
  • Value: 9/10. The Jaybird X3 headphones are worth their price tag. They deliver excellent sound quality, hold a charge for eight hours, and come with a number of different sized eartips and fins for a custom fit. They’re made from metal rather than the plastic some cheaper earbuds have.
  • Portability: 10/10. Most wireless headphones have a fairly bulky battery, but the Jaybird X3 headphones don’t. This is in part due to their unique charging port, which is flatter than a standard USB. A custom charger is included, and the Jaybird X3s are lightweight and small.
  • Durability: 10/10. The Jaybird X3 headphones are sweat-proof so you don’t have to worry about using them in the heat.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. I love that the Jaybird X3 heaphones can be worn a number of different ways (over-the ear, with fins, or under-the-ear) so you can customize your fit.

Final Verdict: Finally, headphones that actually stay in while you run!
