JayBird BBX1MB Overview

  • 1Description

The midnight black BlueBuds X Bluetooth Headphones from JayBird are designed to provide wired sound quality over Bluetooth wireless streaming, employing JayBird's proprietary SBC codec, Shift. The headphones are sweat proof and feature a secure fit for active use. BlueBuds X can be worn either over or under ear, and have an integrated microphone and remote for taking calls, controlling playback, and interacting with their voice-prompt system, Jenna.

A built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 8 hours of use, and can be charged with the included micro USB cable. 3 pairs of ear tips, 3 pairs of ear cushions, 2 X-Fit cord management clips, and a protective carry case are also included.

Shift SBC Bluetooth Codec
Traditionally when sound is compressed on a phone or music player, sent through the air by Bluetooth connection, and decompressed by the Bluetooth headphones, there is a substantial amount of packet loss. It means your music comes through lacking some punch and with a certain amount of static-like white noise.
Through a custom implementation of the native Bluetooth SBC codec, which JayBird calls Shift, they deliver wireless sound designed to rival wired headphones.
A feature of Shift is that it's pair and play, meaning, nothing special is required on your phone or music device, just standard Bluetooth, Shift takes care of the rest
Tuned for Studio-Quality Performance
With the Shift platform to develop on, JayBird has invested into speaker technology. Additionally, sound performance tuning includes the smallest details like housing materials, wall thicknesses, and even the glues used around the speaker. All these variables have been taken into account when developing BlueBuds X
PureSound Reduces Listener Fatigue
Did you know all in-ear headphones (wired or wireless) create white noise? Both the speaker diaphragm and your ear canal have their own impedance or resonance frequency. If they don't match precisely, they create a mirroring effect resulting in white noise feedback, noticeable as harsh sounds in the vocal area. This results in listener fatigue. The BlueBuds X have an on-board filtering system called PureSound that filters out and eliminates the white noise, delivering a clean audio experience that reduces listening fatigue
Secure Fit for Sports
BlueBuds X have patented sports ear cushions that hug into the top, back and lower surface areas of the ear, all essential to lock in for sports.
Sports car grille inspired, the patented secure fit ear cushions utilize a proprietary hexagon cushioning for stability, cushion, and comfort for the longest workouts
8-Hour Battery Life
BlueBuds X are the small, yet they pack 8 hours of play time. Enjoy a full day of music and calls, or work out an hour a day for an entire week on a single charge
Battery Status
For iPhone users, look for the BlueBuds X battery status icon on the top right corner of screen for real time updates on playtime remaining. Even then, no matter what device you use, BlueBuds X gives you approximately 20 minutes advanced warning before powering down when the battery is low
Micro USB Charging
Flip the cap off the end of BlueBuds X to reveal the standard micro USB charge port. The hinge and clip system are made of fortified materials specially designed to withstand years of use
X-Fit Over/Under Ear Fit Options
A feature of BlueBuds X is the ability to lift the cord off your neck for a liberating workout experience. JayBird's patent pending X-Fit allows for the headphones to be used either in the traditional under-ear wearing style for music & calls, or over-ear, designed for those wanting a great sports music experience, free of anything on your neck
Jenna Voice Prompts
Having voice on board makes for a great user experience. With voice prompts, getting to your first track is so smooth and simple. Put your headphones on, hold the power button and Jenna takes over saying "power on," then "headphones connected." Push play and your music begins. Jenna also helps with pairing
Signal Plus for Skip-Free Music
Use your music device on the left or right side, above or below the waist, it doesn't matter with SignalPlus. SignalPlus gives you the ability to run and play sports outdoors while using your music device anywhere on your body without the traditional limitations of your body getting between the devices and blocking signal. Even put your phone/music device in a bag at the gym and workout at a good distance without signal droppage
Sweat Proof
The BlueBuds X headphones have a lifetime warranty against sweat
Liquipel Sweat-Repellent Nano Technology
To further enhance the lifetime warranty against sweat, BlueBuds X feature Liquipel Sweat-Repellant Nano Technology, a hydrophobic process that provides the BlueBuds X with added protection from exposure to sweat and the elements

    JayBird BBX1MB Reviews

    BlueBuds X Bluetooth Headphones (Midnight Black) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great sound quality, blocks out surrounding sounds, battery life is long lasting the quality is very professional, been wanting these earbuds for a long time and finally bought them. Only thing holding me back at first was the price, but buying from B&H saved me about $-$ dollars and I couldn't hold out any longer. The cord is short and I love that you can make the cord even shorter so its 100% out of the way. I use these at the gym and when I'm walking my dog, I love that my phone can be in my pocket and I can control my music easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slightly bigger than I thought, but working very well First time I put them in, I noticed they do stick out of the ears more than I had thought, but are still very small considering they are BT. Main thing is they are light. I wear them over-ear with the securing flaps on. I used them for a few long runs, and they were working very well. I will likely replace the tips because the ones they come with keep slipping out of my ears after 1h of running or so. Sound quality is very good. I didn't notice any cut-offs in normal use, unless I cup the headset with my hand. Battery life easily lasts a few runs, which is good enough for me. All in all, very happy with them.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sound is poor becuase of the bad fit I have used several different type of headphones. I was excited to get these headphones but the sound is quite poor. If I push the headphones deep into my ears and hold them I can get the sound that people must be talking about in their reviews. I have tried all the adjustments and adapters that the headphones come with. They stay in my ears just fine but the sound is quite lacking. Maybe it is just my ears or the way I am using them but I am very disappointed with the way they fit and the sound that they produce.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from On my 3rd pair and now this one stopped charging When they work, they are great, However, I have had the same recurring issue with 3 sets of earphones. All of the sudden they stop charging and die, after about 3 mos of use. Customer Service is great, and replaced the defective unit each time for free. I've done everything they've suggest (changed to different chargers, charge only off a computer, etc) and the problem continues to resurface. I will keep using them because they are under warranty, but if I had to do it over again, I would steer clear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from THE WRLS HDPHNS IVE BEEN WAITING FOR! FINALLY THE WIRELESS HEADPHONES IVE BEEN WAITING FOR! I've been on a search for about 3 years, researching and reading reviews on various Bluetooth headphones, wanting to make the jump from wired headphones. I was skeptical about wireless headphones because of the constant comments about, The sound quality of bluetooth headphones are not as good as headphones directly plugged in. Well I'm here to tell you first hand, that is NO LONGER TRUE! These Jaybirds are GREAT! They fit well, they're comfortable, talking on the phone is clear, and the sound quality is fantastic. My only knock against them is very rarely you get signal interference, but living in NYC, thats understandable and so minor, it doesn't impede on what I'm listening to at all. So i guess that's not really my knock, BUT the 8 battery life thing that's advertised IS a bit of a stretch. From full charge, I've gotten about 4 1/2 hours straight out of my headphones before they died. That's my only knock against them, but not significant enough to deter anyone from getting a pair. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. I suggest packing an extra pair of wired headphones with you if you're traveling more than 4 hours at a time, given my battery tests have maxed out to about 4 1/2 hours after a full charge before dying.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meh. I've tried running with all 3 of the fittings that come with it and the sound is pretty good but not super amazing. They're comfortable and stay in well though, and the Bluetooth works great, no problems there. Pretty good, still not sure they're better than other options out there or worth the cost.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Somewhat Disappointed For the price, I have played with these for a fer weeks and cannot get them to fit correctly without falling out. Also, I have 2 other BT headphones that, in my opinion, sound much better. D

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent sound but average fit and comfort Sound quality is good with good treble and medium bass with good range clarity. The fitting required some used to. The advance over the ear is a better fit but the wing sometimes slide off grove and makes it uncomfortable until readjustment. Overall, I am happy with the product and it is a good value compare to other.
