I bought these earbuds a little less than a year ago because of your review and I must say that these earbuds suck ass. The ear tips constantly fall off with the slightest touch. Every single time I take them out of my ears, the silicone tips stay in my ear and I have to pull them out. The tips even fall off while stored in the pouch. I’ve lost so many tips that I now have no more matching ones. I wouldn’t be as upset had I only spent like $20 on these, but I dropped $130 on these shitty earbuds. You’re pretty messed up for not mentioning this issue in your video. I went to Jay Birds website and apparently many people have the same issue. Now I know your reviews are utter bullshit.
Is there any connection drop off when the phone's in the pocket or when using it with a smart watch like while running having left the phone at home?

These headphones do not have a flat signal response, they are very bass heavy, and if you like white noise at normal hearing levels these are for you <3

Sarah Mims (23 days ago)
Other than the fact that the headphones aren't magnetic so that they don't fall off so easy, and the new charging method that we've been presented with, these are by FAR my favorite headphones I've owned. The sound quality and battery life is definitely great for me. I use these headphones every single day, and surprisingly, I haven't lost them yet.The best method that I've found for keeping them around my neck when I'm not using them is tucking them in my shirt instead of letting them dangle free. I didn't do this when I first got them because they rarely left my house, but when school got back in, the idea of losing a pair of $130 headphones made me sick! My personal biggest gripe is definitely the charging cradle, though. A lot of the time I don't plug them in until right before i go to bed and it's typically dark, so if I don't ensure that the charger snapped onto my device, they don't charge at all. I use my headphones everyday for 6+ hours, so if they miss a charge, I'm just out of luck. Please don't let these two issues keep you from buying these headphones, I personally think that they're the best investment that I've made in a while!

Have you got any reliability issues? I'm thinking about getting either the X2 or the X3 but I'm quite concerned about the charging method of the X3. Not because it uses a funky charging method. I'm not afraid of losing some charging adapter. But would you think the charging pins or adapter itself would stop working over time because of the pins being exposed and such?

I have a freshly opened box of these next to me and I just want to say these are the worst earbuds or ear anything so I've ever had in my life I think I enjoyed the sound quality of like $5 CVS brand headphones more than these they're clumsy they just sound so bad high pitch crispy crap lots of noise battery went from 40 to 25 + like 3 minutes loud annoying high pitch girl voice that comes on when I touch any of the buttons everything about it I'm trying to think of aproduct thats bothered me more than this. zero bass. i have song wireless 30 dollar LG's that bump and sound really nice compared to these I'd like to say more but I don't think any of this negativity is good for anyone I don't recommend these things

+Charley Weinhardt 'not' 'the worst product' tryin this other one comin in the mail
Charley Weinhardt (22 days ago)
+lǝᴉso I'm using a tablet I don't own a cell phone the tablet is Android 4 2 2 but I did find an application that does equalizer Bluetooth sound so I take it the sound decent but they're still just uncomfortable and I don't like the Frankenstein effect of things sticking so far out of my ear I still got them I'm trying a couple different things and the battery seems to be really bad the standby battery seems like it's not working or something I'll turn the thing on forget about it play one song forget about it play a couple songs later on in the bed early be almost done I do think I'm being a bit of a complainer. The worst product ever made but I don't know I'm trying a couple other things letter come in the mail we'll see if they're going back

you can alter the way they sound with the jaybird mysound app. Add as much bass as you like.

Caleb Pestal (1 month ago)
They're $130 on the jay birds website they're. And they're $80 on amazon... ok. Back at it again amazon. Ay?
I wanna get these, but the biggest thing that turns me away is the charging port thing. Really inconvenient to my everyday life. So maybe I'll get the X2's?? Willing to drop money on either, but, man, goddammit. I hate deciding.
lǝᴉso (6 hours ago)
xDinox I don't know how the pins will fair with time, but I recommend you get a case if you buy the x3s. The little pouch that comes with them isn't going to do much in terms of protecting the earbuds. I've been using a hard case meant for small cameras. The x3s fit nicely inside and are completely protected from dirt and light splashes of water.
xDinox (9 hours ago)
I'm think about buying the X2 or the X3 but I'm gearing towards buying the X2 because it's charging port is covered rather than the X3. Do you think the charging pins would stop working because it's exposed and may stop working after being exposed to natural elements and possible small scratches from normal use?
lǝᴉso (14 days ago)
○•.Laиa Kaч.•○ if you don't mind a slightly larger size and really dislike the charging method than go for the x2

Hi Marquez, I love my jaybird X3 .. only gripe is that sometimes they play random music that isn't from either of the devices I've paired it with, why is this and how do I stop this? Is there some sort of storage system in there for music rather than simply settings and functions? I make sure my devices don't have apps open so no idea where the music is coming from
aionskullss (1 month ago)
Best earbuds I've ever heard. I also have the beats x and a pair of skull candy's and these just thump hard and sound amazing over the others. I love that you can change the way they sound on the app, I use Hi Def Audio preset or precision sound preset and makes these thing come to life

They are the best in terms of sound quality but after having them for a while, the ear peices fal off and get lost easily as well as are annoying to use cuz of the remote weighing down one side

Bro, can I use a 5V 2A charger to charge the X3? M hesitating because the company recommend 5V 1A, and I'm so confused.
xDinox (9 hours ago)
The company really recommends you to charge them with 1 amp or less. 1 amp + will damage the battery and it would fry the battery. Making you no longer charge them.

The silicone earbuds keep falling off as they get loosened up after some time of use; in all other respects, these are really good sounding wireless sporty earphones, with decent battery life and affordable price range for the quality.

I bought these headphones somewhat recently, because I wanted the convenience of Bluetooth headphones and a sound quality burp from the Apple ear pods that I was using. Once i received the Jaybird x3 I tried it out and was immediately very disappointed. The headphones were comfortable, yes, but the build quality was slightly lacking and the audio quality was even worse. I don’t know if it’s just the pair that I got, (maybe they were defective) but the headphones had no bass at all. I didn’t notice anything wrong with the miss and highs, but the lack of bass made the headphones incredibly bad sounding. Also the instrument separation was disappointing. The audio quality was worse than my ear pods. I returned them as soon as I could My main reason for commenting is this: Do these headphones sound a lot better than ear pods? Are these headphones the best at (or lower than) their price? And should I repurchase them under the presumption that mine were broken?
Greatest Ever (2 months ago)
Dylanica I've been using these for a year now and I have experienced no problems except for the audio cutting off but that isn't a problem anymore I had the powerbeats 3 before that the feel was better but the audio quality was way worse when people say that the audio quality on beats is better are trying to convince themselves that they didn't waste any money
DEADLY PAIIN (4 months ago)
The bass can be adjusted in an app. And yes they do sound kind of shitty as default but if you use the app it's way better.

Hey Marques! Do you have any news on the jaybird x4? I'm thinking of getting the X3s but I don't want to be disappointed if the new ones are coming out anytime soon! Also, are the X3s good enough for a base lover or should I be looking at something else?

Ahhh man. Seriously was thinking of getting these but the whole charging clip thing has put me right off. I know I will loose it for sure. Couldn't they have just put a standard micro USB jack somewhere in it ffs

I have the X1s and after more than a year (way outside the warranty) the battery is fucked. If anyone has the X3s can you let me know if you're having any issues with them not turning on or the battery suddenly being empty after like 3 hours of use.

If anybody is curious, my Jaybird Freedoms has issues with the wires coming loose and the coating falling away from the edges. So I bought the X3 after originally owning the original Bluebuds X

Marques Brownlee I'm looking for the best wireless earbuds I can get right now for use in the gym, with my Android Pixel phone. Sound quality, noise isolation, battery life, comfort and stability are all of utmost importance. Do you still think the Jaybird X 3s are my best option? I must admit I'm not too crazy about the proprietary charger. Any thoughts on Powerbeats 3? Any others?
