Jaybird Wireless Bluetooth Buds
by Mark R
For some reason, a lot of wireless headphones designed for the sporting crowd tend to follow this new trend of dual earbuds with a behind the neck wire.
I am talking about wireless earphones such as the Jabra SPORT, and the latest to join the crowd is the Jaybird Wireless Bluetooth Buds. What makes them different? They have a lifetime warranty against sweat. Oh, if only everything had such a guarantee.
I got a chance to try it out, and the sound is quite good. It also has a microphone for taking calls. The buds have 3 sizes of ear tips, as well as 3 sizes of fit ear cushions. This insures that these buds will stay in the ears under active conditions.
These Bluetooth headphones come with a hard shell case that magnetically seals. The music play time is about 6 hours, which is equal to the talk time. The standby time is a good 250 hours, and it takes about 2 hours for a full charge.
You should be able to get the Wireless Bluetooth Buds on the official Jaybird site for about $99. The web site calls them the Freedom Bluetooth earbuds or JF3, but I don’t see this name anywhere on the box.
