- Silicon inserts slip out when you sweat
- Limited options for fit compared to original Freedom
- Fins on ear inserts are not stiff enough to hold earbuds in ear
- Mic noise cancelation is much improved
Overall I would recommend the original Freedom over the Freedom 2 for the simple reason the original Freedom has far more options to create a customized fit for your ears.
I ordered two of the charging clips only to receive one trying to get ahold of jaybird no luck so far and nothing seen
I was so excited when they came in ... it's been a month, and I still haven't figured out how to put them. They either don't fit me at all, or they are as cheap as ...
What can I do with this? I even watch a YouTube video, and they still don't fit.
Good quality of sound but they are not very comfortable to wear and don't fit that well.
I have used Jaybird x3 which were awesome but now using freedom which are not up to the mark, the mic unit is too heavy and looks pathetic. During your workout you will have adjust them 3,4 times and battery oh gosh! Just 2-4 hours.
I am thinking to swap them with beats X. ANY RECOMMENDATIONS?
Hoping to have used these at work since my wired pair would be troublesome with the wire being in the away.
Unfortunately the sound quality goes so bad to the point where it sounds like its coming off an old staticky radio in the distance.
Worked good with my phone but I already have my wired pair for that anyways so these were redundant. And also I had to worry about battery life. Same thing with my home computer.
Staying away from bluetooth earphones from now on.
I use the Jaybird Freedom mainly for Music and YouTube after my BlueBuds X stopped working. I turned on my freedom and one of the side wasnt making any noise.
Luckly, Jaybird replaced them with no issues.
So here's some background. I use these earphones only at the gym 3 times a week for 30mins to a hour. After 3-4 months of use being only used in the gym and properly stored the earphones stop connecting. I love the versatility and quality of the earphones. Although the longevity or the life span isn't so long. Luckily the warranty and company provide exceptional service and I was able to replace them with proof of purchase. How many times have I replaced them? Well, a total of 3 times I have had them replaced.
It gets frustrating since you want a product that will last at the gym and stands up to what's advertised. For this reason, it gets a 2/5 for good quality and service but reliability, function, and use is where it lacks
Straight up do not buy Jaybird Freedoms. I got them from Best Buy because they went on sale and I had read pretty decent reviews about them. BB had the X3's on sale for the same price but I passed on them thinking that the Freedoms would suit me better since they are metal construction and the smallest earbud-type wireless earphones on the market right now.
The one positive about these is the sound quality, with the Jaybird app (this is ESSENTIAL, otherwise out of the box the earphones sound like CRAP!) I could customize the right experience for my tastes, and I could save different settings for use with more bass or less if I felt like it.
The HUGE negative for these things is the weight of the remote which is attached to the wire that goes around the back of your neck/head. It's so heavy (yes, due to the METAL construction) that any movement moves the buds out of your ears or restricts your movement if you want to look from side to side. I can't even imagine clipping on the battery pack to make it even HEAVIER than it already is - one month of trying to get these things to fit properly while constantly moving them back into place really isn't a good experience while playing sports/exercising, or even just using them casually.
Jaybird will tell you to use the "over the ear" method with their earclips/cable shorteners but getting them to fit correctly, or just trying to fit them properly if you're in a hurry is just a huge pain in the ass.
Using earphones should only ever be as easy as putting the buds into your ears and BAM, you're plugged in - but no, these are a complete waste of my time and effort and I will never buy Jaybird/Logitech again.
I had bought these thinking that they would be great and they were for a day than they feel out of my ears and I lost them and there customer support is absolutely terrible bad in there fit for my ears
- Excellent fit in ear...
- Decent sound (X3's are better, just exchanged the Freedom's for X3's)
- Really good audio control response time (forward/reverse track)
- Very limited Bluetooth range (less than 5 feet); signal would break/sputter consistently
- Less than x4 hour battery life (w/o clip-on battery)
- Heavy control unit (assuming battery), which would pull the cable all the way over to one side of shoulder.
- Battery clip/charger would not charge unit after x3 weeks
I had a defective unit, but overall I was not impressed with these headphones.
The X3's are a far superior unit (better sound, shorter cable, non-bulky/heavy control unit).
The only thing that the Freedom's have over the X3's is the ear fit. Just one persons opinion.
I was talked into these by a Best Buy employee and have hated them ever since. From falling out of the ears to actually having a cone get stuck in my one ear and all of the weight being on one side, they are terrible. I lost the clip in extension so now I can't charge them but they deserve to be thrown into the trash anyways.
Save your money
It keeps losing its parts, it's so uncomfortable, plus you need to carry the (so small and easy to lose) charger.
Just... Dont buy.
I have been on the hunt for a good pair of sweat proof earbuds for a very long time. If you're really active and sweat a LOT, like I do, then you're going to love these. The trick is to find the best fit possible, which for me, took all of 10 minutes. I have corroded 3 different pairs of earbuds that were supposed to be "sweat proof", and it was getting a little ridiculous AND expensive. The fit of these is phenomenal. I'm using the memory foam isolation tips instead of the silicone, and they're the best fit I've ever had for an earbud; I'm also using the wingtip, for a fully customized/secure fit. They do NOT come out! Definitely use the clips to secure the cord, in order to prevent the cord from sticking to the back of your neck, like some people have complained about. The icing on the cake is the app that's available to then fully customize the sound, and create different sound profiles. The sound profile is then stored IN the earbud, so you can connect to different devices without losing it. They're really lightweight and don't stick out from your ears, like a lot of other brands do. All in all, really great design and features to *hopefully* keep me loyal. I guess we'll find out, but so far no complaints.
I purchased these headphones recently, & they're absolutely great. The fact that you can download the MySound application to tune the way you want it to sound gives this item a strong edge over its competitors. I found the sound to be underwhelming withing the first 10 minutes of using my new JayBirds, but after playing around with the application, I'm Loving It ! Most ear buds fall out of my ears, so with the addition of the piece that tucks into your ear, I don't have to worry about that anymore & THOSE FOAM TIPS !!!! Very Comfortable.! Great Work JayBird !
Do not buy these, they do not stay in your ear while at the gym let alone even running. It's so bad, such a waste of money. I've tried all the tips and made different adjustments but still haven't found anything that works.
Only three months old and right ear bud went out no sound. I treat my items with care so it's just a poor deign. Customer care is bad
These are one of the best sounding bluetooth headphones I have tried. To me they sounded better then X3s even though according to reports they're supposed to be the same. I think it's because they're very tiny and shaped as such that they direct sound straight into the ears.
The wire is just the right length, is rounded unlike the Jaybird X3s which has a flat wire. I prefer the flat wire, but these do not tangle at all. Beats Powerbeats 3 on the other hand, although did not tangle, they did curve into weird shapes even while on my neck, sometimes hooking into the back of my shirt and pulled when I turn my head.
The battery life of the headphones only is 4 hours, which is bad. You can use the charging cradle to charge them on the go, but for practical daily life, you will end up not doing it. Although very light, it does have some weight adding to the already somewhat heavy remote. So although technically 8 hours of battery, piratically it's only 4 hours. If you're only going to use it for workouts, then it's fine. If you are going to make this you're all round daily use headphones, then you'll have to make compromises. But no compromise with the sound, sound is great and I these can be used for listening music, taking calls, watching movies etc...The my sound app is a must!
Comfort wise, you really need to spend time - a lot of time in the beginning to find the perfect fit. And they are versatile - you can wear them hanging down, over ear, clip it to your shirt, tighten the cord, with silicon tips, or comply tips for super sound isolation, with helmets, toques etc... Not possible with something like Powerbeats.
And connectivity is amazing. You can connect to 2 devices at the same time and they connect as soon as you turn them on.
I would advice people interested in these to wait for a sale. Between these and X3s what it really comes down to is,
Freedom have better sound isolation and slightly better sound(negligible for most ears), are tiny making them the best on the market to wear with helmets, toques, you can even sleep with your ear pressed and you'll hardly notice them.
X3 if you are one who doesn't want to carry a small cradle for extra battery boost, don't like small earbuds that stick right into your ear canals, like a flat cord, like to hang your ear buds around your neck when not using them, and don't mind a slightly more background hiss than the Freedoms.
Great headphones got them for cheap on Boxing Day, sound is amazing and nice that you can customize it with the app but the battery doesn't last as much as it claims.
My work outs usually last 2 hours and it would last one hour and a half max.
The sound is pretty decent but I purchased these hoping to use them for exercising. They don't stay in my ears as well as I had hoped...making them almost as frustrating as my old ones to use.
Very good sound quality and shape, charge does not last as long as expected
got these on black Friday for a really cheap price as compared to actual. they have a great sound but even more great through mySound app which just makes it so much more better and according to my taste.
After watching and reading a hell lot of reviews on youtube and other expert websites, I finally decided to buy these. On the first day of use, the reception was exceptional. I was getting excellent reception up to ~50 feet, through 3-4 walls. But from very next day it started getting worse, and now I lose reception even if the phone is in my pocket. After struggling, trying & testing, I finally found it to fit best behind neck and over ears with medium size silicon tips, and medium size ear fins. But they still hurt if I use it for an hour or so. I did not like comply foam tips because I was getting a lot of electrical noise, it is much less with silicon buds. Sound quality: I knew that they don't have much bass, but it's well below my already undermined expectations. No matter what I do with the app or my phone's EQ, they just don't give a satisfactory bass. They don't stay in my ears even during a walk.
Conclusion: Just a waste of money! And there's no return if you buy these from BestBuy.
Let me preface this review with my experience with earbuds: I've owned:
- Klipsch s4
- Sennheiser cx300
- LG HBS910s
The Klipsch and Sennheisers have great sound, but don't really stay put. The LGs are great at staying put but aren't the best sound. I feel the the Jaybird Freedoms finally got it right. With the Comply ear tips, these things are soundproof, and with the wings, they are PLANTED.
+ these things are planted in my ears! A perfect fit, even while working out/running
+ Bluetooth 4.1 is very stable, even when the phone is on the other side of my body
+ neat integrated app for the EQ
+ strong bass, good mids, bright highs
+ excellent, if not outstanding sound- very expansive for an earbud
+ slim design is the best I've had for under a helmet- these things are tiny
+ using the clip on my collar, the unbalanced feel with the controller is negated
+ Comply ear tips are very (almost too) effective at cancelling ambient sound
+ handy case
+ the separate battery is great- who needs more than 4hrs for workout buds? In the case you run out, the extra 4hrs is compact and right there
+ these things are insanely light
+ cord is smooth so it glides on clothes and skin
- a bit pricey
- the it would be nice if the battery and charger cord were a brighter colour; I can see them getting lost
- as with all earbuds, some sound can be amplified due to the contact in the ear (cord rubbing, heartbeat, etc)
- the "you're connected" voice sounds like a SoCal idiot
I really don't get the negative reviews on the Jaybird Freedom (F5s). I lamented buying them because the X3s seemed to be so much better from reviews, but and have zero regrets about the F5s. These are the best BT/earbuds I've had and would buy them again in heartbeat.
The jaybird x2 sound is much better sound. The freedom is suffered from click noise when music paused and play. Very disappointed
After using these headphones for a month, I experienced several issues. I have tried both the Silicone Ear Tips and the X Comply Foam Ear Tips, with and without the Ear Fins. I have tried all the wearing options,but they start to slip out in five minutes I am constantly readjusting them.The sound is great as well as the app; but the discomfort is the main problem.
The fit will work..
The sound is great, for me.. So impressed.
Buy something else - bluetooth is much weaker than the competition at double the price. jayBird does not support their product - repeatedly blaming their ticket system. Buy something else. I
I just got these this week and I have to say that they are not anywhere near as good as people are making them out to be. I start getting soreness on my ear flap where the wingtips make contact when I wear them for over an hour. The battery just seems to plummet rapidly. I usually have 1 - 1.5 hour workouts and in that time the battery went from 80% to 40%. Lost 50% battery life in ~1 hour workout. I am planning on just returning these tomorrow.
These are amazing little ear buds they provide excellent sound quality, with very clear and crisp highs with a decent amount of bass more then expected in such a tiny form factor. The only thing is the compartment where the volume and battery controls are is a bit heavy but the shirt clip does provide a quick and easy fix. I love the design and over all feel, the ear fins are good but I find the X3's are better. If your comparing the two and have the option to get the X3's I would go with those but over all very satisfied and I have to rate it a 4 star out of 5
Although the sound quality is decent, the noise cancelling feature is mediocre, the headphones do not sit comfortably in the ears.
These headphones did not stay in my ears, even after trying all the different ear bud attachments. The battery/controller is heavy and pulls to one side. I do not recommend these headphones.
These headphones are heavy, awkward and will not stay in your ears. I could not configure any of the ear bud attachments to fit comfortably. My Apple IPhone headphones are 100x better.
- sound quality is awesome!
- battery life is great as I only listen at the lowest 3 settings
- the most uncomfortable and non ergonomic things I've ever used!!!!!
- stupid design
- the ear buds ALL hurt my ears
- rubber ear pieces are too hard for my ears
- the cord from one ear bud to the other needs to be slippery not grippy. Always rubs and drags across the skin - not comfortable
- I want to know what so called engineer thought it was a great idea to put a big heavy battery/control on one side and nothing on the other. Did that guy not understand that the weight and cord will fall to the right side (if that's the side you have the battery/control on) and if you turn right that the left ear piece pops out of your ear every time. Take that other charging pod and put it on the left side for balance. It's basic physics.
*** and a thanks to BestBuy for NOT letting me return the product because of a hygiene issue. I really wish that the sales guy at the Calgary Sunridge location would have explained this to me.
BUY Apple AirPods instead.
These things work phenomenally. They have good range from the source, the battery is good for a few runs.
The only issue I have is that these aren't the smallest speakers to be cramming into your ears. Now maybe it is just me and my ear holes aren't the biggest but I do get them in and like I said, they work great.
Went through two pairs of these, and both times after 5K run in hot weather they stopped working. It all starts with staticy noise in one side and within minutes they are gone.... they are great for indoor use at your desk but that is not they are advertised for .... this was fairly disappointing experience ...
I purchased my first pair if JayBird Freedom Headphones on September 17, 2016.
My first review was based on a few days of use. I should have waited. The headphones are used for running and cycling. Within the first week I noticed the bluetooth skipping. This happens frequently. I wear my iPhone on my hip, not on my arm as they recommend. While cycling, my phone sits on my handlebars in front of me. I had one occasion, while cycling, where the bluetooth cut out completely. I had to turn the headset off, then back on to re-sink.
On a positive note, I find the sound quality better than my Shure SE215. The voice prompts are the feature I like most. The prompts let you know when you are powered up, connected to your device and the remaining amount of power. They also tell you when you power down. The app is also handy in designing your own custom sound. The app also has a selection of existing "custom sounds" to choose from. I only found one of the "custom sounds" that enhance my music.
Here are few more concerns. For me, the extra battery (power device) is only good for powering the existing battery. It feels too onward to wear while running. Getting a comfortable fit can be frustrating. The over-the-ear worked best for me. The foam ear tips supplied with the headphones are not a good friction fit. They slide off too easy. Several times, after removing the headphones, I found the ear tips still logged in my ear.
Today is October 3, 2016. I've owned the JayBird Freedom headphones for less than a month. I've used them an average of 1 to 1.5 hours every other day. This morning when I went to run, my JayBird's would not power up. I tried recharging them. Nothing worked. Best Buy was kind enough to replace them. Hopefully, my second pair work better than my first pair.
Overall these are decent wireless earphones, but not for everyone. The good:
- quality materials
- lightweight design
- smaller earbuds compared to other models
- My Sound app that lets you change the EQs to fit the sound you like
- convenience of charging the battery clip separately while it's not attached
- the biggest issue for me was the size and design of the wings. I have small-to-average size ears and even the smallest set of wings hurt my ears so badly they were sore for days. Without the wings, these earbuds fall out, if you're active.
- the battery charger piece does put some weight on the right side of your earphones.
- the default sound comes out a little flat, so if you like bass-heavy music (esp. dance and electronic music), you will definitely need to tweak the sound using My Sound app. If you listen to a variety of genres, you may need to tweak the sound each time you switch from one genre to the next.
- The clips that make the chord shorter didn't do it for me. No matter the chord length, whenever I would turn my head left or right, I would feel a pull on my earbuds.
- If you lose or forget your charging clip somewhere, there is no other way to charge these.
- Overall, may be ok for about an hour of listening during your workout, but not ideal for extended listening periods. Be ready to charge frequently.
I was really excited about these. For the first month,they worked great. Then they began to randomly shut off. Very disappointed
I purchased the Jaybird Freedom earbuds (model F5-S-B) to accommodate the wireless feature of the iPhone 7 Plus. My main use of headphones is for running. Previously, I used Shure SE 215.
The Jaybird Freedom box comes with a selection of earbud attachments to create a custom fit. I first tried the headphones under the ear. This fit was a bit uncomfortable. It pinched my lower ear lobe. I found the over-the-ear fit best.
The package comes with plastic clips to gather the extra wire when using the over-the-ear method. The clips are flimsy and do not attach easily. It's a minor design flaw that should not exist in headphones in this price range.
The earbud tips that come with the Jaybird Freedom Headphone are made foam gel. The earbud tips on my old Shure SE 215 are made from a more solid memory foam gel. The memory foam tips give a more secure fit. They also provide more comfort and a better noise cancelling benefit. I will try to find some after-market earbud tips that fit the Jaybird Freedom headphones.
One feature I do appreciate it how the Jaybird Freedom Headphones power up. After pressing the power button, (hold about 4 seconds) a voice acknowledges the headphones are on - the amount of battery life remaining - and confirms you are connected to your bluetooth device.
I also love the app that allows the listener to customize the sound to their personal preferences. The app is very intuitive. Once you find your personal sound preferences, you can save it to the headphones.
Overall, I am happy with the Jaybird Freedom headphones.
After using these headphones for 2 weeks, including on several runs, experiencing several issues.
I have tried both the Ear Tips and the Foam Ear Tips, with and without the Ear Fins. After 10 to 15 minutes of running, they start to slip out of my ears and am constantly readjusting them.
The sound is very good, but the discomfort I experience while wearing these means I don’t get to appreciate that sound.
I purchased these wireless earbuds as an upgrade to my default Apple earbuds when I got more serious about running. I was looking for wireless earbuds that could hold up against my sweaty workouts while still providing good sound quality, decent comfort, and lasting battery. After thorough research, I thought I had found the perfect pair in the JayBird Freedom Wireless In-Ear Sound Isolating Sport Headphones.
Unfortunately I was wrong.
My first mistake occurred when I went into my local Best Buy, with the intent of trying the earbuds before purchasing. I wanted to test the sound quality and comfort before committing to such a large purchase. Sadly, I found out that I would be unable to test them out due to sanitary reasons (fair) and that they would NOT be returnable once purchased & opened...... I was a little disappointed with the no-return policy, but I went ahead with the purchase, confident that my internet research would not lead me astray.
Once I got home, I found them difficult to set up, as the instructions included in the package were not clear, and all the online material was in video form. I spent over an hour in front of my laptop pausing and restarting the videos to piece together the earbuds and set them up in the sport configuration I wanted.
I excitedly tried out the earbuds on my run the next day... and the next, and the next. I have now used these earbuds for the greater part of a month, and I am still not pleased with my purchase. The earbuds are not comfortable, instead causing irritation to my inner ear. Furthermore, they consistently fall out during my runs, with or without the battery pack (the battery pack causes the earbuds to be imbalanced, but the buds still fall out of my ears when the battery pack is not in). Lastly, I have found that they are not able to hold a charge. If I charge them at night and work a regular work day, the earbuds have lost much of the charge by the time of my workout (after work). So much so, that even with the battery pack attached, they end up losing power part way through my runs. I wanted to purchase earbuds that were an upgrade from my previous pair, and instead it seems that these are a downgrade.
I would not recommend these earbuds for someone in the market for sports buds. While the sound quality is good, the lack of comfort, constant falling out and inability to hold a charge make them not worth the hefty price tag.
I have used these headphones for 2 weeks, taken them on several runs and worn them constantly around the house, experiencing several issues.
I have tried both the Silicone Ear Tips and the X Comply Foam Ear Tips, with and without the Ear Fins. I have tried the over ear option, the behind the neck option, and even put the cord under my chin. At no point was I unaware that I was wearing these headphones. Where I find that most headphones I wear become unnoticeable after a few minutes, these are constant pulling down on my ears. Off all the headphones I have worn while running, these are the most uncomfortable pair I have purchased.
After 10 to 15 minutes of running, they become too painful to wear and I pull them out.
The sound is very good, but the discomfort I experience while wearing these means I don’t get to appreciate that sound.
Recently I have gone through two pairs of these headphones.
They sound good. They paired flawlessly and the sound is acceptable. Having said that they are marketed as sports product (which they are not unless your sport allows you to not sweat at all). Both pairs failed miserably within 4 miles on the run (hot humid day). Minimal exposure to sweat resulted in staticky sound and within next mile they were dead. I found it very frustrating especially second time around ...
Head phone sounds great! Sound stage is clear! High MID and Bass all works perfectly without overpower and flooded each other. Overall it sounds amazing! It has replace my more expensive wired headphone.
The sound tuning APP helps tune the headphone to style I like and it really works.
I've gone through a lot of headphones and these are by far one of the best out there. They are very comfortable in the ear, amazing sound clarity and the battery charging adaptor gives you amazing battery life. Definitely worth the price
