Jaybird X2 Bluetooth headset announced, even better than its predecessor
When it comes to Bluetooth headphones, there’s not many good options out there, but Jaybird has managed to become one of those manufacturer we always keep in mind. Their BlueBuds X headphones did amazingly in our review, and the company has improved these even further with the latest iteration. They are called the Jaybird X2 headphones, and happen to look very promising (at least on paper).
In terms of aesthetics, the headphones are really no different from what we saw in the BlueBuds X from a couple years ago. We are struggling to find significant differences, which is definitely not a bad thing, as the design was already great. Specs and features also seem to be nearly identical, with the only difference being that battery life is now estimated at a whopping 8 hours.
So what did Jaybird change? Apparently the biggest improvement was battery life, and the fact that the fin design has been altered. The difference in the fins must be very slight, though, as I can’t really notice any clear changes.
The Jaybird X2 headset offers quality sound, with audio tuned for studio quality performance. Their PURESOUND technology eliminates white noise and cleans audio. And because these are optimized for active users, the headset is light, sweatproof, comfortable and even features voice commands.
Of course, the Jaybird X2 headset is also not cheap. This accessory will cost you $179.95, but it’s definitely worth it if you want quality Bluetooth headphones. Are any of you buying these? If you had the previous ones, what did you think of them?
