Jaybird X3 review

 

Improving over both previous efforts, it's third time's a charm for Jaybird's X3.

Jaybird X3 review

 

The Jaybird X3, the third iteration of the company's popular sweat-resistant wireless sports headphone, is probably the best headphone the company has produced.

The Jaybird X3 wireless sports headphone is smaller than the X2, has improved battery life, costs less and sounds excellent for an in-ear Bluetooth headphone. It's sweat resistant and comes with a compact protective carrying pouch.

Don't lose the charging accessory or you'll have no way to charge the headphone; not as comfortable as the Bose SoundSport Wireless; noise-isolating design may be a safety issue for runners.

The Jaybird X3 is a significant improvement over the X2 and one of the top Bluetooth sports headphone currently available.

Jaybird X3

 

The gym-friendly Jaybird X3 wireless earphones high-quality audio in a comfortable, secure-fitting design.

Powerful audio performance with strong, rich bass and well-defined, bright highs. Ships with plenty of ear fit options. Solid companion app offers customizable EQ.

Left and right earpieces are not labeled. Easy to misfire with remote control layout.

Conclusions If you're looking for massive, unchecked bass performance to motivate you during your workout, look to the JLab Epic2 Bluetooth , but don't expect excellent balance like the X3 deliver. We're also fans of the Bose SoundSport Wireless , the...

Jaybird X3 hands-on: A fabulous 8-hour wireless headset perfect for phones without jacks

 

The Apple iPhone 7, Moto Z, and others no longer include a 3.5mm headset jack. Jaybird released its newest generation Bluetooth headset and it is awesome.

Jaybird X3 Sport Review

 

Mediocre sounding earbuds that don't have any other redeeming qualities to make up for their discordance

Low profile design

Poor quality sound, expensive considering their performance

The Jaybird X3 Sport doesn't quite live up to their name as great athletic earbuds. There are a number of models that perform better and cost less.

Review: Jaybird's X3 Bluetooth earbuds are a great choice for pumping iron

 

The Jaybird X3s are a high-quality, yet affordable alternative to other fitness-oriented Bluetooth headphones, including Apple's AirPods and Beats products. Whether or not they're right for you, though, can be very subjective.

If you need a set of Bluetooth headphones and don't care about Apple-exclusive pairing options, the X3 is certainly a must-look, even if you don't care about exercise. They certainly have price going for them, since at $129.99 they're cheaper than...

Jaybird X3 review

 

An improvement in almost every way

Excellent adaptable sound ; Great value ; Durable and compact design

Proprietary charging dock ; Intermittent signal

The Jaybird X3 are an excellent pair of wireless in-ears for everyday use and workouts alike, with some forgivable shortcomings given their impressive affordability. This really is a fabulous pair of sports earphones on the whole, and the flaws we’ve...

Jaybird X3 review

 

The bright-sounding Jaybird X3s won't be to everyone's taste...

Solid fit ; Smart port-free charging ; Good Bluetooth reliability

Bright sound won’t appeal to all ; Some cheaper rivals sound slightly better

Good in parts but the X3s aren’t all-rounders

Jaybird X3

 

Audio company Jaybird is as focused as they come, so you immediately know what you're getting when it announces a new pair of headphones. Like all of its other headphones, such as the Jaybird X2 these are replacing, the X3 are headphones geared towards...

The Jaybird X3 are great-sounding sports headphones that offer a secure fit that won’t budge, no matter what you're doing.
