As far as electronic companies go, Jaybird is among one of the more recently established. It is a Utah-based company that was founded in 2006. It’s actually owned by Logitech, a company known for their personal computer consumer electronics. Jaybird has become a household name in some circles and has become known for their Bluetooth and sports headphones as well as their patented ear fin design. One of the biggest issues with most sports headphones is that they tend to fall out of the ear during intense exercise. The ear fins that Jaybird designed allow their headphones to wrap themselves around the anatomy of the ear to provide a secure fit during exercise.
Today we’re reviewing the Jaybird X3 Sports headphones. These come after the company’s well-received X2 model that was released in 2015. The X3 makes many improvements to its predecessor including a more comfortable design, better sound quality, and a smaller overall package. The X3 also pairs with JayBird’s MySound app which is a fantastic addition that allows users to completely customize their listening experience. Being able to use an app to completely change the sound quality is a huge bonus that a lot of users will love. Let’s take a closer look at this product and see if it’s worth the hype.

We found the sound quality to be great and a vast improvement over the quality offered in the previous version of these headphones. It’s crisp, clear and has deep and powerful bass. The mid-range felt well-tuned and they provided plenty of high-mids that helped the vocals and guitar really shine through. The 6mm drivers found in the X3 provide subtle lows and a booming bass but if you aren’t into this type of sound profile, feel free to change it in the MySound app. We didn’t find that the headphones distorted very easily.
When it came to sound isolation, we found that it depends which ear tips you’re using. Some of the tips will block out more of the background noise than others.
-Sweat-proof for even the most challenging of workouts
-8-hour battery life
-Personalized audio experience using the Jaybird MySound app
-Noise isolating listening experience
-In-line microphone for hands-free calling
