Have brought from these guys b4 (beatsx) they do come with new ear buds etc, already have a pair of these so don't need another, would highly recommend

They have an app so you can design the sound to suit your ears, nothing better

No thanks.

Refurbished = Used (Dirty)

I ordered one on the previous deal and they were greasy and smelled like dried up sweat.

Actually, refurbs might not be a bad thing. As mentioned in the other thread, the new Freedoms have been announced. If you poke around ebay at all the sub $70 ones that are listed as anything from New other to seller refurbished, many come in the original box and have pictures of new sealed accessories. I picked up a pair during the flash sale and they looked brand new to me, and all accessories were in their sealed bags.

So if you're a conspiracy theorist, maybe Jaybird dumped new ones off to resellers to sell cheap as less than new so they wouldn't have to honor warranties on new old stock product like they have previously.

Just a theory.

So glad they made a separate product TWS (truly wireless style). I can rest soundly knowing this means it's a safe bet the X4's will still be wire-attached.

The guy at the race expo showed me them. I think I'd rather get the Zolo Liberty if I was going that route. Like the Freedoms so far. Had them in the sauna tonight after my workout. No issues. Definitely a nicer feeling than my X3's.

The problem I have with the Freedoms is the battery attachment. Not for the typical reasons (though that is a strike for me), but I wear my bt buds dangling over the front (vs flipped over my neck etc) and I have the impression the battery would cause too much sway from the weight of it if you don't cinch the cord... which I have no interest in since I wear them over the front.

Zolo Liberty, you say? Will check out whatever that is. Thanks for the info!
edit: Seems you meant zolo liberty's for TWS, not instead of the X4. My mistake. Stick Out Tongue

The new Jaybird Run headphones are what you're thinking of. The Freedom 2s still have a wire connecting the two earbuds.
