Good headphones but has connection issues

So firstly, connected to my Android Phone with no problem. Turned them on & paired. Easy. The sound quality is good and with the app you can save different sound preferences for different genres of music. Good fit on the ears and the volume is sufficient. Note: You will NOT be able to pair this device with Apple products as of right now... despite what you read. I have tried two different iPhones and an iPad with no luck. Jaybird will tell you it's an Apple issue with their updated software (which may be true) but offer no work around and don't mention that on their website. So if your a pure iOS user, don't buy these headphones. I've also had trouble connecting to laptops using Windows 10. I managed to get one to work, but the other, no luck. There's lots of messing around, trying to find drivers and USB adapters etc. unpairing, re-pairing and so on. The bluetooth can be sketchy at times. If you have the phone if your pocket or stand in certain spots it can cut in and out. Not a huge problem but it's there. Battery life DOES NOT last 8 hours. I like the headphones sound and fit, but if there's other options that offer better customer support, for around the same price and have easier connectivity, then go with that option. Connectivity is the killer for me.

Defective battery after 4 months of use

I purchased the X3's after having done extensive research research online. The main pupose for my purchase is biking and indoor rowing with some casual Netflix viewing. Pros: Great sound Great app to customize the sound to the type of activity that you will engage, you can also save and use different profiles Comfortable in ear with different attachements which are provided Customer support Cons: The one I purchased gave up on me last week, although it is under warranty and will be receiving a new one through customer support this has made me nervous as to the overall quality and/or durability of the product considering the price that I paid.

Just burn your money instead

These things don't stay connected to your phone very well. They work fine indoors but outside...not so much. They have a habit of just turning off for NO reason which can leave your phone blasting music on a crowded bus. Worse thought is the fact the ear pieces have nothing to hold on to, so they will get stuck in your ear when taking these off, or fall and you will lose them. They are also NOT sweat proof, using these to run...they died because they got a bit of sweat on them. Sure they sound good...but..not worth it...save your money

Terrible design

If not for the fit of the earbuds these headphones would get 4/5 if not 5/5. Having said that I cannot stress how much I hated wearing these. The earbuds just would not stay in my ears. I tried the different sizes for the earbud tips both rubber and foam and it didn't matter, medium were the best but I was constantly pushing them back into my ears. I think if not for the batteries being on the earbuds themselves these would probably stay in better. I used these while at work which has me walking a lot and I can not see these being used when exercising. For the price I expected a much better fitting product, very disappointed. I ended up returning them and getting the Philips MetalixPro and love them, the earbuds stay put in my ears, battery lasts my full workday and I barely notice the neckband.

love them, really comfortable

I use these earbuds at work everyday battery last 5 to 6 hrs depending on how loud u play music love that the stay in my ear, even as I'm laying brick or cutting there are very comfortable once u find the right site up sound quality is great I have owned there for about 4 month and I'm pretty hard on my stuff and they are still working great and as long as I don't lose them I figure they should last year's.

Bought a set.... exchanged due to connectivity going in and out. Second set....same issue. Sounds great except for cutting in and out all the time with phone a foot away

3 Months old. Will not power up

Loved them when they worked. Died a couple of days ago. Green light on charge but will not power up. Tried all the reset approaches; e.g. 8 clicks and 5 sec hold the power button. No luck. Look at their website, issue is pervasive.

Decent product but overall, disappointed

The headphones are solid, well made, and well packaged. There are 3 foam inserts and 3 silicone inserts but I couldn't get a comfortable fit. The headphones were somewhat painful to wear and wouldn't always seal. Ended up returning them.

Lest than 3 months later, the battery is almost dead, have to return them

The battery is far from what the feature advertises (ie: 8hours). During the first few weeks the battery would last at best, 6-7h max. But quickly it started to show signs of diminishing charging capacity. Now, close to 3 months after I bought them, the battery is done(almost). I can charge them all night, and the red light will still be on in the morning. When I take them it says "fully charge" but obviously it is not because 30 minutes later I hear "battery 20%" and then 10-15min later, I hear "please charge, power off" and the battery is dead. Also, if I charge them, the decharge even when turned off. Conclusion, even though the fit and sound is really great, the poor battery quality makes them worthless.

X3 Silicon pieces fall off

Excellent sound, easy to use BUT the silicon ear tip pieces keep falling off. Looking at the design they simply slide on and off. I think this is a poor design but a great way to get you to keep buying replacement pieces.

Good so far but losing accessories

Great quality. It has been difficult to get the correct earbuds to fit and stay on with the wings. The smaller sized ear bud come off easily and I've lost (and found) them several times. Sometimes when I take it off the earbig gets stuck in my ear. Lost wings twice already. Need to make these items stay on better.... And a reason for the large assortment of then in the package.

Poor Customer Support from Best Buy

Earbuds are every bit as good as advertised. Charge last about 8 hours. Unfortunately the charging clip is very small. Shame on me I lost it. Bestbuy's helpful customer support all but told me "sorry about my luck", "we do not sell any accessories and we cannot / will not assist in contacting to manufacturer. Went to Jaybird's Official site and the product is there for sale, but out of stock in either colour. Product was great for 8 hours. Not sure who I am more ticked at, the manufacturer for being out of stock or Best Buy for not supporting what they sell.

Awesome!

I must say, the sound quality is really really awesome. This is my first wireless earbud. I have a Bose Over-Ear Wireless Headphone. This one has better sound quality then Bose OE Wireless Headphone even though I am a huge fan of Bose. I am happy with the purchase. Good thing I got the 2-years Protection Plan with this. I am happy!

Stop questioning AND PURCHASE

These headphones are one of the best investments I have made to date. I have always struggled with keeping ear-buds in my ear while working out, these buds stay VERY firm in place. If you doing exercises that involve the front of your body, you swing the cable to your back - and visa versa if your exercises involve your back. These ear buds are a clear front runner in comparison to others. Stop researching because these are the BEST!

annoying to wear

the audio is good but any time you touch the buttons it fells from your ear. stuck with your cloth and pull from your ears. I think the cable is too short. It hurts after few hours and won't last 8 hours listening to podcasts. button line, wrong design for something that can't be returned.

I love these!

These in ear headphones are extremely comfortable, low profile and the sound quality is amazing. I also have a pair of Bose Pulse sport earbuds and the Jaybird's fit move comfortably and has a sound quality equal to the Bose.

PROS: Incredible sound & exceptional fit. Awesome mobile app. CONS: Terrible charging cable/clip design!

Sound good, but lots of connectivity issues and support was no help.

The sound quality is great and maybe if you only connect to one device, and you have no problems connecting with that device, then they will be ok. I move between several devices and I'm constantly having problems connecting. My laptop recognizes the Jaybirds but the Jaybirds sometimes refuse to recognize the laptop sitting right in front of it. On my desktop, there are many times when audio cuts out. I've contacted support and they basically ran me through obvious simple fixes and the blew me off, saying it was an issue with the device, even though I have issues on multiple devices. Too much money for something this unreliable.

Nice!

I have X2s which I like. I didn't need these, but wanted to try them out. They sound better than the X2s and I was happy with those. The iPhone app is great for adjusting the sound. If you are using these with an iPhone, Siri actually sounds like Siri with these, on the older version the Siri sounds were not quite right almost mono as opposed to stereo. These seem to fit better as well. The X2s were good. These are great. Glad I got them.

I'm losing connections after 6 weeks use

The X3s were great initially but at about the 6-7th week of use, I'm constantly dropping connection. With my iPhone6 - if I turn my head away it cuts out. I have to keep the control outside my ear as opposed to behind to keep a better connection. Even if its in my pocket at the gym it cuts out. If its on the ground, it totally loses connectivity. I would say I have connectivity about 50% of the time, and this is always within a few feet on my device. I've noticed in the last few days it does the same with my MacBook if I go around a corner in the room. Worst part is Bestbuy hasn't received new ones in stock for a while so I can't get a replacement. May have to send to the US for warranty.

Great Bluetooth headphones

Have been using these JayBird X3's since November 2016, used for running, walking my dog and general everyday use, they work really good, sound quality is incredible nice clear highs, mids and lows to my ears but everyone's hearing is different, but to have a app to customize the sound of the headphones for your taste and music is one of the best features of these headphones. Battery life averaging over 8 hours depends how loud and amount of bass in music. Lots of choice of ear bud adapters like sizes and plastic/rubber or foam. Only time is have experienced a hiccup in the bluetooth signal is when the controller is tight against my head and wearing a toque and my phone in my lower pant pocket, but if I dangle the controller off my head behind my ears I haven't had any problems with Bluetooth signal no matter where my phone is on me. Highly recommend them especially if they go onsale.

Good quality sound. Long battery life. Stable and fast connection. I don't like the way the charging works but I just have the charging adopter attached all the time so it is not bad.

A very satisfying purchase and above my expectations

So far I am very satisfied with the purchase (definitely wait for sales), these are well-designed for sports. A bit trial and error to get the right fit, but once it's done, it is quite comfortable and secure. I wear it well over an hour running and my ears would not feel fatigue nor would them fall out. Really light weight and the cord shortening accessories really helps with getting them out of the way. Battery lasts around six hours on highest volume after a full charge. And bluetooth connection is very smooth. Sound isolation is really well-done, and I would say that to use them while running on the road, the volume should set lower to hear a bit of the traffic. Overall great sounding headphones and able to find a nice sound profile using the app (the default a bit too overkill in high range).

Good in the gym

Once i figured out the right size of tips and wings to use these were solid. I've only used them in the gym for a week and a bit but so far they are great. So nice to not have wires to worry about. The app is solid and lets you set the EQ to your listening preference, more bass less bass etc. I highly recommend these as a workout headphone

Très mauvais

Les écouteurs ne reste pas dans l'oreille malgré tout les adaptateurs fourni. Le Bluetooth se déconnecte tout le temps du ipod. Dès qu'on le met dans une pochette le signal ne se rend plus au écouteur et la musique coupe tout le temps

Phenomenal sound and app

The sound quality is fantastic with great bass and isolation thanks to the comply foam tips that are included. The battery life is great at roughly 8 hours. I do wish they made the drivers detachable like high-end IEMs so that if something happens to the cable or when the battery dies, you could just replace the cable. Maybe that's something that the X4's can have ;-)

Good headphones

Solid build - the cord is strong but not stiff and material is nice matte rubber Lots of options for fit - though I couldn't find a combo that's perfect for me. I'm using the largest silicone one. Also comes with foam ear buds for extra tight fit and sound cancel - don't particularly like foam in general but that's personal preference. Sound was quite good with the foam when I tried though. Fins are good for keeping the buds in - make sure to push the fins all the way in PAST the ridge - the ridge is not a stopper... Sound quality is great and probably the best feature. Pretty solid.

These earphones are very versatile in sound ranges and paired with the app for them, it only makes it better. Only issue I have with the earphones is that if you have big ears you'll struggle to fit them properly

Lightweight and great sound.

Have been using these for a couple weeks and I love them. They stay in while running better than other wireless earbuds I have tried. The comply foam tips are very comfortable and I love that you can wear these under or over the ear. The MySound app is a very cool feature. I have tried the jay bird x2 and these fit better, have more bass and look nicer.

Best Bluetooth earbuds

As proud owner of Jaybird X2, I can say with full confidence that the X3 are simply incredible and superior to its predecessor! Sound quality is superb, fit is amaizing (I was able to use the X3s without the earfins and felt super comfortable!), battery life just under 8 hours with a single charge, and the price just under 100Can?!? It's a no brainer for first time owners or experienced audiophiles!

Great workout headphones, with a customizable fit

The sound : It's clear and the sound stage is pretty wide. The bass is not super punchy but well balanced with the rest of the frequencies. If you don't like the EQ, you can always download the mysound app to cater the sound EQ to your needs. Fit: with 3 pairs of ear fins, 3 pairs of foam tips and 3 pairs of silicone tips it takes a bit of time to figure out which combination fits you best but once it's fitted it's awesome and won't drop out of your ear.

Amazing wireless earbuds for an amazing price

These earbuds are a much needed improvement over the X2s from a sound and fit perspective. There are 3 pairs of fins and earbuds to find the right fit. The noise cancelling is impressive, and the MySound App for these is unique. Highly recommend these to anyone looking for a solid pair of wireless buds that stay put during a work out and provide great sound. Don't bother with any other brands.

Great bluetooth headphones....but.....

Got these around a month ago, because I was fed up with running while wearing wired in-ear headphones and heard good things about Jaybirds. Pros: excellent fit and sound. It took a day of fiddling with all the attachments until I figured out a really comfortable combo. Great battery life (I have not gotten anywhere near depleting the batteries yet on any runs). Controls are very good as well. Cons: for some reason, bluetooth crackles outside if I'm not wearing the iphone close to the ear buds, eg upper right pocket or arm band. Inside, I can be two rooms away and it works fine. I would have goven these 3-4*'s but I talked to a bluetooth expert from California at an event, and he said this is par for the course with bluetooth: excellent inside, lousy outside. Anyway, I now use an armband for my iphone when I run outside, so this is no longer an issue, Another con for some people (not me, as I'm careful) is that there's a special charging attachment for these buds - if you lose it, you can't charge them.

I wanted to love them but couldn't

After reading and watching so many reviews I was excited to get these headphones and hoped I would love them too but unfortunately, I can't get behind these. Pros - Good Built Quality - Bluetooth connection is strong - Sound (when they fit properly) Cons - The fit (for me they don't fit well) - Charger connection - Sound (When they don't fit properly) The biggest issue I have is with these headphones is the fit, which impacts the sound and the comfort. I find the small fins and tips (both comply and silicon) are too small, the medium ones are too large. If they made the medium ones a bit smaller it would have made a world of difference. Also to a lesser degree I'm not a fan of the sound (even after playing with the "my sound app")

This is by far the best wireless headphones I've ever had! Better than my Powerbeats and Bose Soundsport. I'm very satisfied. Thank you Jaybird

Top quality wireless headphone for a great price!

Let be honest, wireless is the future wether you like it or not and to get ahead of the game these are one of the best wireless earbuds out there. Very well built, sweat proof, comfortable, sound great, and fit amazing. Best sports/active earbuds as they are sweat and water RESISTANT but everyday use is great. Easily get 8 hours a play time and never had weak Bluetooth connection. The greatest part about these are the JayBird app. Sure they sound good out of the box but actually changing the software in the earbuds with your phone to suit your musical taste is incredible! They are a little bit pricey but it could be a lot worst compared to competitors. Overall great product and I highly recommend if you're looking for wireless earbuds.
