I got my jaybird x3s today and I suppose I‘m gonna return them. The voice prompts are so damn loud it hurts my ears and you CANNOT change their volume (no, it‘s not the same as the phone‘s volume). Support also has not done anything useful regarding this since January 2017. Shame!

DO NOT BUY THE X3's. My first pair stopped working because of sweat, so Jaybird sent me a replacement after a month. After some use, the second pair also stopped working because of sweat.

Man how have I not found your channel before now? Excellent review man, great quality.

So I had my x3 connected to two devices and both connected fine. The issue I have with this is if one device is playing media and the other also play, once the first device finished playing media the audio priority goes to the other one playing media. Normally it would be fine as people would want to connect to their own device but what's to stop some random guy on the bus connecting to your x3 and try to mess with your audio?

Are these still recommended in 2018?

I've had the X3's for over a year. They have great sound and superb comfort. However, several times they've lost the ability to charge. I've sent the buds back to jaybird several times for a replacement. Support was great. They replaced my broken earbuds several times without any hassle. Nonetheless, this is not acceptable and I cannot recommend the X3's based purely on durability.

I dont doubt that this will be a good fit for gym, but I watch YouTube videos, and my family videos from photos and other stuff on my phone. Would this headphone give me real-time audio?
TeZ Zap (2 months ago)
Pretty much disappointed in these. The sound quality isn't all that. Bass is good but when going into equalizer I can not get the vocal sound just right. Plus the buds pop off all the time. Very easy to loose them. Also when in my jeans pocket connection is in and out.

The charging pins makes this a no go for me. I've had smart watches that used charging pins and they eventually corroded from sweat and made charging a hassle until they outright stopped working. Not risking that with something I'm gonna do a lot of exercise with.

I’m on my third pair in less than a year and I keep getting the same problem. The right earbud produces no sound. I went to Jaybird support page and this seems to be a common issue. Jaybird people keep telling costumers to do factory reset, but that doesn’t work or fix the issue. Sucks!
ms ce (3 months ago)
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.

Sarah Mims (3 months 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!
xDinox (3 months ago)
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?

Charley Weinhardt (4 months ago)
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

+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

○•.Laиa Kaч.•○ (4 months ago)
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 (3 months 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 (3 months 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 (3 months ago)
○•.Laиa Kaч.•○ if you don't mind a slightly larger size and really dislike the charging method than go for the x2
Kasandra (4 months ago)
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 (4 months 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
Antoni G (4 months ago)
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 (3 months 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 (5 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

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.
