Jay Bird Sport Bluebuds Headphones Review & Giveaway

Jay Bird Sport (HERE) contacted me about trying out their newly released, Bluebuds (HERE).  As an avid runner, my headphones and their comfort-level are super important.  Even more so than the sound.  I don't want to be fidgeting with an extra contraption or earbuds falling out of my sweaty ears.  So, I was curious to try them out.  Maybe the awesome sound-quality would even add a wow-factor to my workouts, too. 
 
The comfort is important to me and I have trouble finding almost any headphones that work well with my ears and the sweat that comes from them.  The secure fit (HERE) is different from anything I've ever seen or experienced.  They are definitely a great fit and super comfortable and up for out-lasting you and your workout or long runs.
 
If sound is important to you, then these are it for you.  The sound quality is intense and the beats are awesome.  Most likely something you've never experienced during a workout.
 
At $169, these headphones are more than I would be willing to spend on my headphones that may get lost at the gym or tangled up in my gym bag.  They also are a little out of the price range for young athletes.  However, I you are looking to invest in a great pair of awesome-sounding headphones that are versatile for workouts on the road or at the gym and have the extra money to invest - these would be a great option.  Unfortunately, I'd rather spend 150 bucks on a few race entries.  That's just me.
 

The headphones

BlueBuds X are the smallest Bluetooth headphones available, yet they pack an incredible 8 hours of play time, double that which has previously been possible from a product this small. Enjoy a full day of music and calls, or work out an hour a day for an entire week on a single charge.

Using the device

Use your music device left/right side, above/below waist, it doesn’t matter with SignalPlus™. Considerable innovation has gone into SignalPlus™, the ability to run and play sports outdoors while using your music device anywhere on your body without the traditional limitations of your body
getting between the devices and blocking signal. Even put your phone/music device in a bag at the gym and workout at a good distance without signal droppage.
     
Comfort and functionality

A stand out feature of BlueBuds X is the ability to lift the cord off your neck for a super liberating
workout experience. JayBird’s patent pending X-Fit™ allows for the headphones to be used either in the traditional under-ear wearing style for music & calls, or over-ear, designed for those wanting a great sports music experience, free of anything on your neck.

The tunes

Traditionally when sound is compressed on a phone or music player, sent through the air by Bluetooth connection, and decompressed by the Bluetooth headphones, there is a substantial amount of packet loss. It means your music comes through lacking some soul, lacking some punch, and with a certain amount of static-like white noise. Through perfecting a custom implementation of the native Bluetooth SBC codec, which we call Shift™, we deliver a level of purity and sound that rivals and challenges the very best in wired headphones.  A great feature of Shift™ is that it’s pair and play, meaning, nothing special is required on your phone or music device, just standard
Bluetooth, Shift™ takes care of the rest.
