Bose versus Jaybird - fight!
By 80 Shades
I have tried various inexpensive wireless earbuds / headphones over the last few years, and have never found a pair that beat out my good old-fashioned wired earbuds. Well, I recently had the opportunity to try out both Bose and Jaybird wireless buds. Both are similar in price, have gorgeous packaging, and have similar features. Here are the results.
- Bose: 10 of 10. Absolutely astounding sound quality. Simply the best I have ever heard at any price, wired or wireless, period.
- Jaybird: 8 of 10. Solid sounds, fine for podcasts or casual music listening. Bass response is nowhere close to Bose, but with some equalizer settings on your device you can come closer. Competitive with most other nice earbuds I have tried.
- Bose: 7 of 10. Surprisingly good fit considering how HUGE the buds are. Seriously, these things are big. They apparently house the battery and electronics that power these (since they are wireless). But for their size, they fit fine with the included inner-ear pieces (several sizes included).
- Jaybird: 9 of 10. Excellent fit. Tiny compared to the Bose product. These also include many options for earbud size and inner ear inserts that hold them in place, but they remain comfortable after several hours of constant use while running.
- Bose: 9 of 10. These have the charging port directly in one of the earbuds, which works well. You can download the Bose app, and amazingly you can even read your pulse from the buds! This is a fun and useful feature for various types of training.
- Jaybird: 7 of 10. Has a separate little "mini" dock needed for charging. You can download an app for the device to adjust the sound and perform a few other "minor" functions, but I wound up deleting the app and just connecting normally via Bluetooth.
So do I have a favorite? For daily exercise use I am gravitating to the Jaybird mostly because I prefer the fit and just do not care for the giant bud size on the Bose. But for travelling or listening when I'm not active, the Bose wins out with superior sound.
In summary, the Bose is a great product - recommended!

Extremely comfortable, good sound, wish battery lasted longer
By Critical Skeptic
Still the best bluetooth in-ear headphones of early 2017 (8/10). Let me explain.
Well, first, I cannot believe there are so many raving reviews claiming these headphones to be the "best I have ever heard at any price, wired or wireless, period". Um. Ignore Vine reviews. And then one-star reviews complaining about defective units -- well, every electronics is prone to defective units, and Bose has some of the best warranty policies, so please.
So you're thinking about wireless in-ear headphones. As of 2017, your two best options are Bose Soundsport Wireless and Jaybird X3. Here's how they compare:
SOUND (Bose: 8/10)
-- Very good and fun sound. Warm and slightly bass-heavy, although the lowest bass rumbles as well as harsh trebles are cut off (like most bluetooth headphones). I wish mids had more clarity, but I'm nit-picking here. These aren't replacing my wired headphones, but if I'm traveling, I can definitely enjoy music with these.
-- Jaybird X3 (7/10): These are slightly brighter-sounding headphones, with less bass impact but clearer mids and trebles. Still pretty good. These are closer to neutral, but high trebles are still rolled off. So it's up to personal preferences. I also think it depends on your ear fit, and if you can get a better seal than I did, then your experiences may vary (bass is the first thing to go with a poor seal).
COMFORT (Bose: 10/10)
-- I generally don't like to give perfect score to anything, but Bose really deserves a perfect ten here. This is the selling point of Bose. Despite the ugly bulky looks, the headphones are incredibly comfortable, and wires don't distract.
-- Jaybird X3 (8/10): These have average comfort, like most other in-ear headphones. Wings help a bit. Wires are heavy and tug on the ear pieces when I move around a lot. Overall, significantly less comfortable than Bose.
PRICE (Bose: $149)
-- Bose is pricey. They're known to be pricey/over-priced, and discounts are hard to find.
-- Jaybird X3 ($99). These are definitely a great deal, and you can often find cheaper deals.
-- Bose remote buttons feel weird to press. Buttons are big, not very clicky, and generally unpleasant to work with. Jaybirds feel better.
-- Battery life is fairly advertised at 6 hours. I get around 7 hours. I wish it lasted longer. Jaybirds are advertised at 8 hours but I get around 7, same as Bose.
-- Bose looks ugly, if you care about these things. Jaybirds look nicer. I personally don't care.
-- Bose provides a more useful case. Jaybird case's opening is too small and frustrating to use on the daily basis.
Overall, Bose Soundsport Wireless is extremely comfortable and sounds great. I wish the battery lasted longer, but I don't think any competition (as of 2017) provides a significantly better battery life, yet. Until then, Bose is still the bluetooth in-ear headphones to beat.

Great Wireless Headphones (and you can use these for biking)!
I really like these headphones. The fit and size of these are great! I was worried about them being huge, but they are not. I was expecting them to protrude out from my head, but the size of them in your ear is not bad at all. I can still wear my knit hat over my ears with them in without a problem. You wouldn't even know I had on headphones if it weren't for the cord. They stay in place very well. I tried moving/jerking my head to see if they would come loose and they didn't. I wore them for a couple of hours without pain. Very comfortable in your ears.
The sound on these is amazing! They make everything sound good! You don't even need the app like you do for the Jaybird X3s. So, I don't see the benefit of the app. I think I'm going to delete it.
I got these because I've been trying to find some wireless headphones that I can use when I go biking. I usually encounter a problem when I stick my phone in my bike jersey pocket or my coat pocket when it's colder out. Other headphones that I had would stop playing or wouldn't work. I also had problems once I started riding because of the wind. Well, I had no such problems with these! I popped them in, used the voice command to get my music playing and that was it! I stuffed my phone in my jacket pocket and they played without a hitch! I tried that with the X3s and the headphones immediately disconnected. Not these babies! They just kept playing and it was crystal clear. I thought the wind from me riding would be a problem, boy was I wrong. I rode with these for about an hour and a half and no problems. These aren't noise cancelling so, yes, you can still hear the cars and folks around you without a problem (No, I wasn't blasting the music)! They stayed in place, even as I turned my head to check for traffic. They just stayed put and kept cranking out crystal clear sounds! Being able to use these while I ride was the clincher for me! I've owned Bose products in the past and they haven't disappointed me yet. A big thumbs up Bose!
Super easy to pair
Great sound (music and phone calls)
Great for biking
Great connection with your device
App (not necessary)
battery life (I need to confirm that I can get the six hours, that's still not great)
