What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
JayBird X3
  • Excellent sound quality with use of the free downloadable app. Very easy to use.
  • From an audio quality point of view, I was initially disappointed with the flat sound, until I read the manual and realised there is an EQ app available that lets you configure the sounds as you prefer.
  • Headphones are great at first, with good sound quality, and they’re quite comfortable.
  • The sound is great, not just for wireless headphones but just generally. It definitely competes with my momentum 2.0s
  • The sound is average, not really detailed but it's loud and the dedicated app with the equalizer helps but still it's nothing impressive. Cheaper Bluetooth headsets have the same sound.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
 
JayBird X3
  • I'm still having great problem with the fitting, I've tried the different sizes and materials of the tips and fins but still I have to constantly adjust them during a simple treadmill run.
  • Comes with a number of different ear bud sizes so you should be able to find one that suits.
  • The ear tips and fins come with different sizes so you can find the right fit.
  • This did not happen with my other bluetooth headphones (much more expensive and full-size).
  • If you try two three combinations then you will not have any problem with any ear size .

What customers say about "Features"
 
JayBird X3
  • Lots of features available through the app (you can swap Left and Right channels) as well as customize EQ settings.
  • Something that I didn't even bother checking in the specs is the absence of aptx protocol, haven't decided if it's a good or bad thing yet but it's a feature that is standard in so many other rival headsets. Will have to get back to you.
  • Wireless and sweat proof were two key features I was after, and these are great for that. But the sound lacks any real presence. The earphones I got with my old Xperia Z1 were SIGNIFICANTLY better than these.
  • There is no firmware update for the buds and based on the forums I have viewed they don't plan on changing this feature anytime soon.
  • Life span, foam tips wear quickly (a common feature of foam-tips really, but worth having, Amazon sell a brand called Misodiko that I found better than the ones that came with the X3's)

What customers say about "Power"
 
JayBird X3
  • The battery life is very good though, can listen to music for hours without need to charge it and the microphone for phone calls is good. I haven't had any problem during a call and the other caller could clearly hear me.
  • Battery life is great and comes with a handy little bag to store the small USB charger adaptor so very easy to charge where ever a USB connection is available.
  • Good battery life almost 8 to 9 hours of listening to music.
  • The only potential negative is the battery life. My other bluetooth headphones last around 15 hours. These only last around 6-8.
  • The battery life is not great, the charging clip SUCKS, and you can’t buy a replacement. Oh yes they are kind of sweat proof too.
