Jaybird X4

 

The wireless, exercise-focused Jaybird X4 earphones are supremely versatile, delivering booming bass or balanced audio depending on your EQ preferences.

Powerful audio performance that is completely customizable using the app's EQ. Excellent in-ear fit. Waterproof.

Short, proprietary charging cable.

From an excellent in-ear fit and waterproof design to a user-friendly app that allows for a bass bonanza or a fairly accurate, flat sound signature, the Jaybird X4 earphones are a notable step forward in the series. We test a lot of exercise-focused...

Review: Jaybird's X4 sport headphones win on price-to-performance

 

The X4 is a further refinement of Jaybird's sport earbuds, and both a solid and cheaper alternative to Apple's Powerbeats3.

If I'm honest, I expect to go back to my Powerbeats3 partly because I do prefer the extra bass, but mostly because I find hooks to be more reliable for keeping things in place. Fins can help stop buds from falling out — hooks guarantee it.

Jaybird X4 Earbuds Review: A Modest, Mostly Good Upgrade

 

The Jaybird X4 feels more like a partial update than a full-on enhancement of its elder sibling. It's a step up, but not the vast leap we're accustomed to with every new X release. That's not to say the X4 isn't a dependable pair of wireless sports...

Adaptive soundstage ; Flexible and lightweight design ; Companion app with multiple EQ presets ; Secure, tight fit ; Waterproof protection

Buggy performance ; Weak battery life ; Uncomfortable to wear during long stretches

The Jaybird X4 is a modest upgrade with enhanced aesthetics and great sound, but it also has poor battery life and lots of bugs.

Jaybird X4 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

A great choice for gym goers and trail runners

Solid, comfortable fit ; Decent sound for a sports set ; Great build quality

Prone to dropouts in busy areas

The Jaybird X4s are solidly built sports headphones that won't break the bank.

Jaybird Tarah wireless headphones review: Cheapest model may have everything you need

 

Jaybird's entry-level wireless sports headphone has seen some discounts. At its sale price it's a good value.

The Jaybird Tarah wireless sports headphones fit comfortably and securely, are fully waterproof and sound good. The inline remote is slim and lightweight and the companion app is well designed and allows you to tweak the sound.

It has a proprietary charging cable, so if you lose it, you can't charge the headphones. There's no carrying pouch included. Battery life is only average.

If you can pick up the nicely designed and good sounding Jaybird Tarah at a little bit of a discount, it'll make up for some of its small shortcomings.

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Great Sound. Comfortable. Secure

 

Easy to pair and solid Bluetooth connection. Fantastic secure fit. Worn for 6km run and never budged. Very comfortable and lightweight too. Just take time to find the right wing/tip combination. Sound quality is excellent to my ears and will improve as...
