Jaybird Bluebuds X bluetooth IEM's - Page 5

post #61 of 65

Hi ZMan2k2, 

 

I as well am thinking of buying these very very soon (as of tomorrow and the next) as a working out pair of earphones and I just wanted to know how much do these stick out of your ears and how easily is it to put them in and out of your ears as I usually take them out at the end of every set for a breather.

 

From first glance the white storm trooper look intrigued me+ I like to think I like to choose something different than everyone else. However I'm also considering the black pair because from reviews from youtube a lot of people have the black pair. So I'm wondering on whether the black pair looks more "expensive" as the white pair in person. Choosing what colour is important to me, I have small ears and even though I like the white&black look, I'm not too sure on how obvious/big these will look sticking out of my ears..

 

thanks in advance!! ^_^

If you have small ears, I would recommend getting the matching small Comply tips...And they do stick out a fair amount. This review has a picture of a guy post-workout sweating his face off... And shows how much they stick out. As for white or black, do a simple google image search and see which you like more. At this board, whether a pair looks "expensive" or not doesn't matter. We're all about the sound quality. And these have superb sound quality.

Seriously though, spring for the comply tips. They're way better with them.

Thank you for that info batteraziiz,
I have a few workout buddies and we often help each other out and I often take my buds out inbetween sets for a breather. So I think the comply tips would be a pain to put in and out of my ears, it would be good if I were working out by myself tho.
I know that some head-fi people are all about sq over aesthetics (it could look as ugly as **** but if it sounds Amazing, people wouldn't care) I'm just curious in what colour would make me less of a cyborg. haha.

Had the Bluebuds X for over a year now. About a month ago they started cutting out the sound for a split second every other song. Not a big issue but it's getting more and more irritating. The online chat support is wonderful, although unfortunately the recommended reset procedure did not help. I'm way outside of US so shipping them back and forth is probably not what I'm going to do. It's quite a shame that such product doesn't have an upgradeable firmware. I think the problem could've been solved with it. 

 

The comply foams make quite a difference both in quality of sound and isolation. If you're doing sports (that's why you probably got the BBX in the first place), the Active series are the way to go. Although you should keep your ears clean before wearing the headphones, because the crap in your ears gets into the bluebuds and causes severe volume drop over some time (a bit of a pain to clean too). The isolation series can still be used for sports. They provide better sound quality + have residue protection screen. But they are more water resistant causing them to slip out more than the active series. 

 

I will be trying more reset procedures + changing the OS on my phone to see if I can get rid of the problem. I still think it's a good product even if it lasted me a year. 

 

However, I would love to hear some suggestions about an alternative. Is there anything better for sound quality than these? I'm looking for something with more bass.

I scored a new pair of these at best buy for $102. I love them! ksc75smile.gif
