Jaybird X2 Sport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
Review. While the landscape of wireless headphones
has rapidly shifted in the years since, the BlueBuds X held up in a manner that can’t
be said about much of their competition. That said, it was certainly time for a refresh. While Jaybird covered sweat-related damage,
some found that general wear and tear was enough to render their headphones unusable. This, combined with advances in terms of sound
quality meant that it was a perfect time to introduce the sequel. Ditching the branding for a simpler name,
the Jaybird X2 in-ears are instantly recognizable, and could even be confused for the BlueBuds,
but there are big changes under the hood. Soundstage is impressive for in-ears, especially
considering we’re talking about Bluetooth, with plenty of space around the instruments. Pavement’s swirling “The Hexx” made
good use of this, sounding huge even at lower volumes. Like the sound quality, how well these block
out noise will depend largely on what tips you’re using and how well they fit. The original BlueBuds X claimed a battery
life of around 8 hours, but often struggled to reach that number. The Jaybird X2s claim 8 hours as well, but
they actually reach that number in use. For some reason Jaybird calls this Battery
HD, which is puzzling, but this battery life is still impressive given the small size. The in-ear “fins” help to keep the headphones
from moving around, so this will matter as well. Using the Comply foam tips I found that
the Jaybird X2s provided effective passive isolation. I’m a noisy typist, but even at low volumes
I found that the sound of my keyboard was completely eliminated. The X2s can handle a good deal of volume before
beginning to distort, but I found that my ears gave up before distortion kicked in. Unlike a lot of the headphones we’ve reviewed,
these don’t seem to have a target genre of music in mind. The EQ curve is far from flat, but worked
equally well for each type of music we threw at the X2s. We’ve heard better headphones,
but for the price range, the flexibility of the X2s is appreciated. From the Jenna voice prompts to the sheer
amount of tutorials Jaybird makes available to help first-time buyers get the most out
of their headphones. It’s clear that the company has put a ton
of care into not just the product, but the experience of using the X2. The sonic signature speaks to this as well,
being well-suited to any sort of music or other media instead of simply targeting a
few popular genres. While the Jaybird BlueBuds X were obviously
a well put together product, they never grabbed me personally. Though they’re very similar, the Jaybird
X2 did manage to make a fan out of me. That alone is proof that not only do the X2s
stand up to their predecessors, but surpass them in every way. Kindly see the description for this Amazon
