Jaybird unveils their new X3 headphones with better Bluetooth connectivity and faster charging
As more and more devices get the 3.5-millimeter headphone jack axed from them, the use of Bluetooth headphones seems like its going to become a lot more commonplace than it already is. There's already a great selection of options out there, but if you want the latest and greatest from one of the best wireless headphone makers around, you just might be interested in Jaybird's latest product - the X3.

The Jaybird X3 headphones are the successor to the company's X2 that carried on the legacy that the BlueBuds X first started. The X3 headphones feature a design very similar to the X2s, meaning that they're best-fitted for someone with an active lifestyle. The Jaybird X3 features an ever-so-slightly slimmer body than what was featured in the the X2, and the sweat-resistance means that they'll be perfectly equipped for long runs or exercise routines.


Just what does the X3 bring to the table though that makes it a worthy improvement over the already fantastic X2? There are a couple new additions, and the first has to do with Bluetooth. Jaybird says that they've "redesigned the Bluetooth antenna architecture from the ground up to ensure skip-free music outdoors." This means that the Bluetooth connectivity should prove to be stronger than ever, ensuring that any outdoor and indoor interference doesn't cause the connection to drop or falter. Also, Jaybird is promising that the X3 headphones will be able to last for 8 hours of use on a single charge and can get a full hour of use-time back after just 15 minutes of being plugged in.

The Jaybird X3 headphones are currently available from the company's official site in Blackout and Sparta color options for $129.99. However, if you're looking to save a bit of cash, Amazon is currently offering the X2 headphones for $79.99 down from their normal list price of $149.99.

They are excellent. Bluetooth headphones aren't that great when it comes to sound quality. But for running and working out. I highly recommend them. They last me four 2 hour work is usually If you're an audiophile. You won't like them.

Although I love sound quality. I tend to use jaybirds since its cordless and hassle free. It lasts a long time as well which is a plus. Bluetooth signal can be lost sometimes due to interference though.

For working out, I've read you're better off with Jlab's Epic2. Waiting for it to go back down to $60.

This features one significant function I've been waiting for in the Jaybird series; MULTIPOINT. This technology is so ancient, it's been out for over a decade now ( https://goo.gl/IdhZfn ) and it's very handy, I was surprised $20 headphones have it ( https://goo.gl/HTZm1V ) yet they weren't available in my Jaybird BluBuds X. One other handy feature it comes equipped with is SHARE ME. This appears to be a proprietary solution to headphone splitters as offered by the 3.5mm headphone jack. At the moment, they say it only works with 2 of the X3 headphones, which is no true alternative to the 3.5mm headphone jack.
