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 Freedom series, which are both in-ear lineups.
The best Jaybird headphones for mixed usage are the Tarah Pro. The Tarah Pro are the most recent iteration of the Jaybird lineup, with a great sports design that has an official IPX rating. The Tarah Pro also support the Jaybird MySound App, which gives you access to a parametric equalizer that allows you to customize and personalize their sound profile to your liking. You can also share your configuration through the app with other Tarah Pro users.
The best Jaybird earbuds for sports are the Run. They do not have the sweat resistance and IPX Rating of the Tarah Pro and the Jaybird X4, but they are truly wireless with a stable fit in the ear that makes them great for running and working out. They have a shorter continuous playtime than the other Jaybird models, but last longer overall thanks to the charging case, Overall, they're a compact, easy to carry around headset, stable for sports, and they sound good and block enough noise to use casually on your way to work.
The best Jaybird headphones for a lower budget are the Tarah. They lack a few features when compared to the Tarah Pro, their build quality does not look as good as the Pro, and they last a bit less on a single charge. On the upside, they have all the essential makings of a great sports headset and they are versatile enough for casual everyday use. Like most Jaybird headphones, the proprietary charging dongle may be a bit bothersome, especially since it doesn't match the rest of the X series. For the price, they offer a better value than the Jaybird Freedom.
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.
