Jaybird Wireless Headphones

Perhaps you’ve recently purchased a mobile phone with no headphone jack. Or, perhaps you’re tired of getting tangled up in headphone/earbud cords. Both are perfectly good reasons to get wireless headphones.

I’ve been testing out a couple of Jaybird’s wireless headphones: Freedom 2 and Run. Let’s take a look at them one at a time:

The Freedom 2 wireless sport headphones are great for those who need wireless headphones for travel and activity. They’re attached via a “SpeedFit cord” that allows you to quickly adjust for comfort and security on the go.

It took me a short while to get it to where I like, but once I adjusted it, I haven’t needed to change it.

Jaybird Wireless HeadphonesThese headphones/earbuds have a 4-hour play time, and there’s a small charge clip that you can attach to the controls that has an additional 4-hour charge.

So, 8 hours of play, total.

That may not be long enough for the most marathon of flights, but throw a nap, meal, and the occasional in-air walking excursion through the aisles, and it’s plenty.

The Run headphones/earbuds are truly wireless.

Not even connected to each other, they’re easy to carry around in your pocket, but they come in a handy case that’s also a charger.

They’ve got 4 hours of play time, and the case has an additional 8 hours of portable charge—so a total of 12 hours of music, movies, or podcasts. The case also has a Fast Charge mode, which gives you an hour of charge in only 5 minutes.

Both the Freedom 2 and Run have tips and fins that are interchangeable, so you can determine the right fit for your ears, and they’re sweat-proof and water resistant as well, which lets you wear them out for a run without them slipping around, or even just for a walk in the rain without worrying about ruining them.

Both of the headphones/earbuds also have customizable sound through the Jaybird app. Adjust the bass or treble exactly as you like it for your own listening pleasure. A bonus, the Find My Buds feature will help you locate your earbuds in case they go missing.

The Jaybird Freedom 2 wireless sport headphones come in carbon (black), steel blue, and gold (which is actually mostly white with gold trim) and lists for $149.99 on the Jaybird site.

The Jaybird Run true wireless sport headphones come in “jet” and “drift” which don’t tell you a lot about the color, but it’s a very subtle different anyway—“jet” is mostly black with silver trim, and “drift” includes a little white in the color scheme. They list for $179.99 on the Jaybird site.
