Jaybird Tarah wireless headphones come with waterproof design and a reasonable price
Acquired by the popular maker of PC and mobile peripherals back in 2016, Jaybird is putting the Tarah wireless sport headphones up for pre-order exclusively on its own website today. Priced at $99.99, which undercuts the BeatsX by a substantial 50 bucks, these lightweight, comfy, water and sweat-resistant earbuds are headed to stores across the US and Canada next month.
The Jaybird Tarah will be available in three nifty color combinations (Black/Flash, Nimbus Gray/Jade, and Solstice Blue/Glacier), the latter of which you’ll only be able to purchase from the company’s e-store and Best Buy.
Cosmetically similar to the X4, Tarah has to make do with around 6 hours of battery life between charges, compared to a solid 8. But fret not, bargain hunters, as the two wireless headsets share fast charging features, allowing the lower-cost variant to get one full hour of play time after a quick 10-minute power-up session.
Good for both music and phone calls, the Jaybird Tarah delivers “crisp, clear, and uncompromised” sound, with customizable EQ settings available in a dedicated app, and an outdoor-friendly design combining interchangeable silicone ear gels, adjustable cables, and IPX7 rating for underwater survival down to one meter for up to 30 minutes. That’s certainly not a bad list of features for $99.99.
