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. The most recent and premium of the Tarah line-up, these earbuds have a great build quality and solid design, making them among the best wireless earbuds for running. While adequately comfortable, they might not be the best for long listening sessions. However, Jaybird has a "switch fit", allowing you to rotate the earbuds so that you can get the best fit. Their sound is great, too: decently well-balanced, these headphones have slightly more bass, which will please EDM and hip-hop fans. If you aren't a fan, you can head over to the Jaybird MySound App. Its parametric equalizer allows you to customize the sound profile to your liking and share it with other users. On top of this, these earbuds have a 13-hour battery life - more than enough to get you through a workout or a work day. While you can only charge them with a proprietary cable, you can save power using the auto-off timer triggered by magnetically snapping the earbuds together.
The best truly wireless Jaybird earbuds that 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 Jaybird Freedom F5 Wireless 2016 are the best budget Jaybird earbuds we've tested so far. While being an older model can make them harder to find in stock, they're still a more affordable option if you like the Jaybird brand. Their slim in-ear design is great for those with small ears since they come with 10 sets of tips (four stability and six regular). Although not the most comfortable for long listening sessions, once you find your fit, these earbuds aren't likely to move around. Their default sound profile is also very balanced and will be suitable for most genres of audio. Just like the rest of the Jaybird series, if you want to tune it to your liking, the companion app has a great parametric EQ.
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.
