Elliot, our Sales Supervisor grabbed a set of Wireless Jaybird Freedom headphones as soon as they were available…Brief Review
- Their small, unobtrusive size and lightweight body make these ideal for both mobile phone users, people with bluetooth enabled MP3 players and fitness enthusiasts.
- Jaybird offer a lifetime sweat warranty.
- The GeckoGrip ear tips keep the Freedom earphones in place while you’re moving about.
- You can use apt-X technology to avoid loss of sound quality.
- Enjoy your music without becoming tangled in a web of cables.
- If you don’t have a bluetooth enabled device you’d need an adapter to use the Freedom earphones.
- Not great if you don’t like putting earphones in to your ear canal (check out the Jaybird Sportsband 2 if you want a standard wireless headphones solution).
These are the ideal product for anyone who wants to enjoy music wirelessly and they’re highly recommended for gym use thanks to the sweat warranty and passive noise isolation.
Ahoy! I’ve got some good news for sports enthusiasts and bluetooth users: the Jaybird Freedom wireless bluetooth buds have come in to stock.
Now those of you lucky enough to have spent a day or two at the Gadget Show Live would have had the chance to be among the first in the country to play around with these little beauties. However, what if you weren’t able to tunnel out of work to spend a day in the wonderful world of technological marvels? Well you’ve got uncle AMP3 to tell you all about them.
What are the Freedom Headphones?
The idea behind the Jaybird Freedom buds is really quite simple. They are bluetooth earphones so allow you to listen to your music without becoming tangled in wires. Sure, bluetooth headphones have been around for a few years now but up until now the options have all been a little bulky. This is where the Jaybird Freedom bluetooth buds step in.
They are small and unobtrusive with a lightweight body which make them barely heavier than a standard set of inner ear monitors. The nice glossy body also means they look fantastic and high end. Moreover, the cabling which connects the earpieces together is a nifty tangle free one so no longer will you have to pick apart knots when you could be enjoy your tunes.
And that leads us neatly in to how they sound; which is excellent to my ears. There is a decent amount of definition between the frequencies and the overall quality of sound is strong. So far I’ve experimented with different music styles from my collection (everything from soul to noise) and so far they all sound as good as each other so they should please most tastes. They even have the ability to use apt-X technology to make sure that you don’t have to compromise sound quality for the convenience of bluetooth.
Wire Free & Hands Free
Jaybird don’t stop there though, oh no they don’t. With more and more people using mobile phones for listening to music they deliver some pretty nifty hands-free options. You can answer phone calls, with the music automatically pausing and resuming afterwards, and the high quality mic means your sweet voice is clearly delivered to the ears of your friends and family. The 6 hour battery life will keep you happily chatting away for…well…6 hours. When you’re not on the phone tracks can be skipped and paused from the ear buds themselves as well as controlling the volume so your player or phone need never leave your pocket.
Jaybird’s Sports Guarentee
Now you might remember that I mentioned sports enthusiasts at the start of the review; well fear not I haven’t forgotten about you good folks and neither have Jaybird (they’re never gonna give you up, let you down, turn around and hurt you…sorry that’s stuck in my head).
Like their other earphones you’re covered by the lifetime sweat guarantee meaning that if the Freedom buds break down due to you working up a good sweat in the gym, like a knight in shining armour, Jaybird will replace them for you. On top of that piece of mind they bundle in the nifty GeckoGrip ear inserts which stay put in your ear while you work out.
Nothing But Your Music
I’m reliably informed by my gym going colleagues that often they’re quite noisy places which often don’t play the music you like. Well you don’t have to worry about this with the Freedoms as they will passively block out background noise by acting as earplugs meaning your own music won’t be drowned out.
I could sing the praises of these earphones all day long but instead I’ll end by simply saying: if you want a great set of inner ear bluetooth earphones then get the Jaybird Freedom wireless bluetooth buds. You won’t be disappointed.
