Jaybird is still relatively new to the scene of workout headphones, but they have done a great job of establishing themselves with their Jaybird Sportsband Headphones.
Style. Plenty of colors to choose from.
On Touch Controls. Controls for music and receiving calls are easier to use than most headphones because of the larger surface area on the headset.
Lifetime Sweat Warranty. This is one feature that Jaybird has built its workout headphones on. All Jaybird Sportsbands come with a lifetime warranty against any damage caused by sweat.
USA Triathlon Partner. With its new partnership with USA Triathlon Jaybird has even more obligation to live up to its word as the “world’s greatest sports headphones.”
Comfort and Fit. Rotating earpads and adjustable headband allow for a perfect fit.
Loose Fit when Horizontal. This is kind of a weird con, but there have been complaints of the fit during activities that require the headphones to become horizontal. For example, during activities such as situps.
Bulky. While Jaybird does a great job of making these extremely lightweight – they hardly weigh more than earbuds – they’re still a bit larger than most workout headphones. This didn’t create any problems during the workout, but you can’t roll them up and toss them in your gym bag like a lot of other sports headphones.
Sports headphones in general have usually taken a back seat to style…until now. Jaybird doesn’t only place an emphasis on creating some the best Bluetooth sports headsets, but they also make them look good. As the world begins to adapt and make a large push towards Bluetooth its important to have a pair of headphones that can double as sports headphones and headphones you can wear around while still looking good, and the Jaybird Sportsband does just that.
If you sweat a lot and are concerned about damaging your headphones, then this might be your top choice due to the fact that there is a lifetime warranty against sweat damage. You heard us right, lifetime.
While we found that these headphones are great for just about any workout, they reign superior for runners.
