I have 2 pairs of these headphones (black and silver) and they are awesome. I think I paid $99 for the black and then $75 for silver. I bought 2 pairs because I like 2 at the same time and have them for the gym ready in my gym bag. Don't want to have a 1 pair of headphones run out of battery at the gym and later listen to their cr@p music. They both work great, sounds great, holds charge as good as day 1. I put like a billion hours in them at the gym. I don't get 8 hours of 1 single charge because that number is based off 50% volume and I blast it to like 80% volume. I never ever had a problem with the chargers.... Here is a tip. You got try out the different size buds, different size fins and wear the headphones different ways to find out what you like best. Some people complain that they don't fit right but they fit great, very comfortable and never fall out. I wear medium bud, medium fin and wear wire under ear and behind the neck. Best fit for me.

I am seriously considering buying a 3rd pair for home use because the price is insanely good.... But I don't have any large over the ear bluetooth headphones and considering the Sony - WH-CH700N for $99.

Don't forget to use the bonus Best Buy mystery reward promotion.... I got $5 off certificate.

I've owned several Jaybird models, and ran SO many miles wearing them. I threw a pair away last week (after 18 months of 7 days a week use) and they will be my last pair.

Honestly, the cheap 20-30 dollar pairs on Amazon have caught up. Used to be they were larger, heavier, had less runtime, etc... Now, the better reviewer ones on Amazon are just as good.

I would avoid this headset due to a proprietary charging system. They should have gone with USB
The proprietary charger is like a half inch... It is connected to their 3" USB wire dongle or you can connect it to any of your micro USB cords. It isn't a big deal. It is part of their reason why it is sweat proof and rain proof.

Keep the proprietary charger in the pouch with the headphones... You can charge them anywhere you have connection to USB port.

The 3" USB wire dongle It isn't a big but it should be taken into consideration. There's use cases where having a proprietary charger is deemed inconvenient. Ex. A user travels over seas for and forgets his proprietary charger. A user forgets to charge it at home and doesn't have a charger at work. It'll require you to buy multiple chargers for the car, work, home, etc....

Someone mentioned earlier that target has these on clearance for $35.

Here's a brickseek link for anyone who wants to try their luck.

I got a pair of these to use at the gym and I'm not crazy about them. They sound great but when the cable is shortened using clips that came with the headphones, it greatly diminishes the effective range of the headphones to the point that it cuts in and out if it's further than ~3 feet from my phone. I own a pair of x2s and it kind of feels like a downgrade. The only real positive is the app makes the headphones sound great.

At 35 bucks I'd say it's a good buy, but at 60 I'm not as confident.
I don't know you are doing wrong but I don't use any clips. I have 2 pairs and they have never lost connection in the gym over the year. I even walk away like +100 feet from my phone and they still have strong bluetooth connection.

Or you could keep the 3" dongle inside the pouch with your headphones... Problem solved. Anywhere you have connection to USB port, you can charge. I can charge it to my PC, my car charger, portable charger, etc.... if I use the pouch with the headphones and dongle together.

I can't be the only person who uses the storage pouch.

Yes, problem solved for you and some but not for all. Do you have 1 charging cable for your iPhone or android device? Do just put it in the pocket then problem solved?

Yeah they work fine without them but I don't like the cable bouncing around when I run so I prefer to shorten the cable with the clips. I also did this with the x2s without any deterioration in range.

Jaybird headphones that have a "lifetime" warranty are BS. They mean the product lifetime, which for them is... ~1 yr. until the new model comes out FFS
Jaybird was acquired by Logitech, and Logitech gives "like replacements". I replaced my Jaybird x2's for the new Freedom f5's when they came out a couple years ago. Just saying.
So the warranties are still valid, you just won't get the same product back.

You are confused. You don't need a bunch of charging cables for the Jaybird X3 if you keep the dongle in the pouch with the headphones. I can charge the Jaybird X3 to anywhere I have a USB port available because the storage pouch that I always use with my headphones.... No need for 5 proprietary chargers. No need for proprietary charger for my anker 5 port USB charger that I use daily.. A proprietary charger for my car charger.... A proprietary charger for my Anker portable charger. Ridiculous.

Anybody who don't use the pouch is pretty crazy because they would easily get damage and the the rubber buds or foam buds would get destroyed so quickly. The pouch must be used.

FWIW I have 3 pair of X1s. I've had them for a few years and I use 1-2 pair every day. Had to dive into the pool with one pair on to pull the dog out a few weeks ago. I just knew they'd be toast. But, I powered them off immediately and waited a week before I charged them. They powered right up and connected. I love the X1s.

I owned these and returned them. Among other issues, the connection was so spotty as to be downright unusable for podcasts or audiobooks and nearly as awful for music. One of their "solutions" - which didn't work - was to wear the headphones in "casual" position instead of "sport" position - which undermined my reason for buying the headphones.

I switched to the Soundsports, which were overall better, except for the cable management system (which Jaybird really did get right). Recently upgraded to the true wireless Soundsports, and I'd recommend them highly to anyone in the market for comfortable true wireless headphones that stay snug while running and sound very good.

Bluetooth reception is garage. Put my phone into my pocket and turn my head, sound cuts out. The cheap $20 buds I have don't do that.

Jaybird's customer support keeps pointing me to their support page and has suggested I stop putting my phone in my pocket. I've done everything on that page, that's why I'm contacting support. Dumb farks.

Not worth $10.
