Nothing is more annoying that headphones that don't stay put whether you are working out or just sitting and enjoying music or podcasts. I have struggled most of my life with in-ear headphones due to having smaller ears and the shape of my ear canal. Earbuds always seem to fall of my ears with the slightest movement of my head (and don't even get me started on running).
When the team at Jaybird approached me about checking out their Jaybird X3 Sport Headphones, my gut was to pass on the opportunity, but I had heard a bit about Jaybird on social media and have only heard great things about them from runner friends. Maybe, just maybe, the Jaybird X3 Sport Headphones are a good fit for me. When my Jaybird X3 Sport Headphones arrived in the mail, I quickly opened the box to check them out.
I figured that a relaxing time like lunch was a good time to try out the fit and find the tips and ear fins that work best for me. I was really unsure with how the ear fins would feel. I knew that they were important to the design to keep the earbuds in my ears (which has been a problem in my life with every pair of buds that I have ever tried), but I was wasn't sold on if they would be comfortable. Honestly, I was absolutely blown away when I put them in. I felt the tips when I tucked them in my ear, but after that, I didn't even know that they were there. They felt very light and were really comfortable.
I have to say though that the thing that REALLY gave me a secure feeling was the fin. The fin tucked nice and securly (yet comfortably) in my ear and never budged even during my speedwork and they were so comfortable that I basically forgot that they were in until someone went to talk to me in the locker room afterwards.
You can also simultaneously pair and connect your X3 Sport with two different Bluetooth devices - for example you can listen to music or stream video on your laptop and answer a call on your cell phone. Hello multi-tasking!
