We have currently reviewed 10 Jaybird headphones. They're a popular brand that makes earbuds for sports that are ideal for running and working out.
The best Jaybird headphones we've tested so far are the Jaybird Tarah Pro. They're the most recent, and the most premium, of the Tarah line-up, with a great build quality and solid design, and are our best wireless earbuds for running. They 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 users. Their proprietary charging cradle can be a nuisance to deal with, but their solid 13-hour battery performance, coupled with a convenient auto-off timer that triggers when their magnetic earbuds are snapped together, more than makes up for it.
The best Jaybird earbuds that are truly wireless we've tested so far are the Jaybird Vista. They're very well-designed with a surprisingly comfortable in-ear fit and come with an excellent charging case. They're compatible with the same customization options as the Jaybird Tarah Pro Wireless via the app, and you can even map their controls to better suit your needs. While their case can be charged with a standard USB-C cable, which is an advantage over other Jaybird headphones that use a proprietary charger, their 5.5-hour battery life isn't quite on par with other premium truly wireless earbuds on the market right now. That said, they still provide great value for athletes looking for low-profile earbuds for working out.
The best Jaybird earbuds in the budget category we've tested so far are the Jaybird Freedom F5 Wireless 2016. They're an older model, so they're getting a bit more challenging to find in stock, but they're much more affordable than Jaybird's most recent offerings. These headphones have a compact in-ear design with ultra-slim earbuds that can better fit those with small ears while still maintaining a very stable fit. They're surprisingly feature-packed for their price too, thanks to their companion app and multi-device pairing support. Their 4-hour battery life is mediocre-at-best, but you can use their charging clip like a battery backup to extend their battery life as long as you don't mind the added bulk.
Overall, Jaybird makes wireless earbuds for sports and does it well. Most of their headphones are compact, easy to carry around, and have a stable, secure fit for working out or running. Most of their products feel well-built, are generally quite easy-to-use, and are compatible with the Jaybird MySound app which gives you access to lots of customization options. Jaybird only makes in-ear designs, though, which aren't comfortable for everyone.
Jaybird makes great sports headphones that are versatile enough for everyday use. They have sleek-looking, portable in-ear models with lots of customizable features. However, their lack of variety means that if you don't find in-ears comfortable, then they may not be the best brand for you.
