We have currently reviewed 3 Jaybird headphones. They're a popular brand that makes sports-oriented headphones ideal for running and working out.
Overall, Jaybird makes sports headphones, and they do it well. Most of their headphones are compact, easy to carry on you and stable enough for working out or running. They are decently well-built headphones that passively isolate better than some noise canceling models. However, they only provide in-ear designs that may not be comfortable for everyone.
Jaybird only has two lineups for now: the X series and the Freedoms, which are both in-ears lineups
The best Jaybird headphones for mixed usage are the X3. The X2 perform a bit better in most categories and situations but the difference is not that significant, and the X3 support the Jaybird MySound App. This gives you access to a parametric equalizer that allows you to customize and personalize the sound of the X3 to your liking. You can also share your configuration through the app with other X3 users, which is not available on the X2.
The Freedom are the best Jaybird earbuds for sports. Although they're slightly less stable than the X3 and X2, they're still great headphones to go running with and they're a bit more compact. They also perform as well as the X2 for all the other use cases, which make them a solid recommendation for all listeners. However, the external charging clip can be a bit bothersome at times.
Jaybird makes great sports headphones that are versatile enough for everyday use. They have sleek-looking in-ear models with an above-average sound and portable design that easily fits into any pocket. However, their lack of variety means that if you don't find in-ear headphones comfortable, then they may not be the best brand for you.
