When I was first turned on to the Bluebuds X BT earphones, I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive as I am so picky when it comes to sound. There are literally dozens of discarded products laying around that went on only to be thrown aside a few days later. I have been using the Bluebuds X for several weeks now and not in so conventional circumstances either.
On a recent trip to West Virginia on my motorcycle (thats 11-12 hours from Niagara), I realized that there was a huge plus with the Bluebuds X when caught in the rain. To be very brief, we do alot of travel in the lower US and have been caught in more than one flash flood, downpour and even a tornado a few years back. Did that leave welts from the water hitting open skin? Anyway, wireless earphones allow continuous listening to music through inclement weather while the Samsung Note II stays completely dry and in my pocket. Think I’m kidding? The first of these shots was between Nashville and Memphis at the 2K mark of our trip along the south coast and the second is just below Olive Branch heading down the Mississippi Delta:
And we thought that their use was limited to physical training… Anyway, last but not least, the Jaybird Bluebuds X also have a control switch on the cord which allows for such things as power on/off, volume up/down, song select back/forward, along with several functions that allow cell phone, and even GPS use on the Galaxy Note II, when the Bluebuds X are in use.
Checking e-tailers, one can find the Jaybird Bluebuds X BT headphones at prices ranging from $169.99 all the way up to $269.99 for the very same product. Egad! They can be purchased from Jaybird directly and are also available at BestBuy or Amazon for $169.99 but supplies were limited.
This is a premium price for a premium product but there are just so many pluses with the Bluebuds X. They fit great. They are light. They are wireless. They sound great and they come with accessories that will appeal to all. Matter of fact, looking at the various reviews, the Jaybird Bluebuds X have the highest rating from all internet sources that we think we have ever seen. Great product Jaybird!
