based on the following sites

PROS

  • The Comply foam tips provide a super-secure fit to keep the headphones in place during hard-core workouts.
  • The X2 does a superb job of blocking out ambient noise.
  • The audio quality is impressive; you can expect a deep base response and bright highs.

CONS

  • Depending on your personal sense of style, you may find the X2s look odd or unflattering.
  • The earpieces lack labels for the left ear and right ear.
  • For what you get, the price is a tad high.
The X2 Bluetooth headphones--Jaybird's successor to the BlueBuds X--sure got a serious overhaul: improved sound, better battery performance with the 8-hour claim, and a new silicone case offering greater durability. The X2 comes with more earpiece tips including the foam variety to deliver a better fit. Plus, the unit can be worn two ways. The company touts its sweat-proof and micro-sized design. And you'll find four new colors available beyond the predecessor's white or black options: red, blue, light green, and dark green.

The earbuds are also capable of not only letting you listen to your music wirelessly, but also take calls. This feature, too, did not fall short in the quality department. When I took a phone call and asked for feedback on the sound quality, the caller could not tell I was using headphones.

We lived with the X2 through more than 100 miles of cycling, running, and walking. Like its predecessor, pairing and connection are fast and reliable and battery life is excellent...[S]ecurely held in your ear, the earbuds never feel heavy, and the many included accessories make it easy to customize for comfort.

The Jaybird X2s claim 8 hours [of battery life and] they actually reach that number in use. For some reason Jaybird calls this Battery HD, which is puzzling, but this battery life is still impressive given the small size.

If you’ve got the money, Jaybird X2 is a solid choice for a pair of Bluetooth sport headphones. They’re light, they sound very good for their intended use, battery life is great, and, try as we might, we couldn’t kill them with sweat.

On tracks with intense sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the X2 delivers some serious thumping low-end. At top, very unwise listening levels, the lows do not distort, and at moderate volumes, you get a definite sense of powerful bass.

The cord management system takes a bit to figure out and I recommend you find and download the user guide to get it right. Once the cord clips are in place, things are great, but it does take a bit to understand how they function.

The main reason you should look at these headphones...is the sound quality...Without a doubt, I’m convinced that these are some of the best sounding Bluetooth earbuds you can buy. The sound has been fine tuned and improved over the BlueBuds X and I can definitely hear the difference.

Like the BlueBuds before them, the X2s ship with fins (removable, thankfully) to help secure them to the wearer's ear...They do take a bit of getting used to, however - it took me a while to get them in just right. But once they're in there, they're in there good and tight.
