Jaybird Bluebuds X Bluetooth Headphones GIVEAWAY!


I consider myself a pretty simple runner. I don’t spend excessive amounts of money on running clothes (except my shoes, of course) and I didn’t even own a GPS watch until about 2 months ago. HOWEVER, I think I have found something that has seriously changed my running game for the better. These Jaybird Bluebuds X wireless headphones.

I absolutely must have music when I run. If I’m on the treadmill, I’m watching Netflix or Hulu. I just prefer to be distracted. I’ve always had issues with headphones that stay in my ears when I start to get super sweaty and I always tangle myself up in the cords.

I’ve read about bluetooth headphones on some other runner’s blogs and when we went on our family vacation this year, but uncle was sporting a pair of these Jaybird Bluebuds X wireless headphones. My dad seemed particularly interested, so me and my brothers got him a pair for father’s day. As soon as he opened the box I wanted a pair for myself, so I reached out to Jaybird and they graciously offered me a pair to review and another pair to giveaway to one of you fabulous people.

I’ve been using them for about 3 weeks now and (spoiler alert): THEY ARE AWESOME.  Thomas and I literally fight over who gets to wear them when we go to the gym together. He is really into weight lifting and mountain biking, and they are great for both of those activities too. No wires while lifting weights is a real game changer.

Anyway, let me briefly tell you why they are so great.

  1. They do exactly what they are supposed to do. Great sound, they don’t move at all and I can’t even tell I’m wearing them.
  2. They come with these neat little hooks that hold them in place. The hooks are flexible and comfortable, so it doesn’t feel like something is jabbing your ear. There are three different size earbud attachments and three different size hooks so you can use what works for you. Whenever I let Thomas borrow them he simply switches out the attachments to use what works for him.FullSizeRender-12_thumb.jpg
  3. They don’t fall out. I took this disgusting picture to show you how much I sweat when I run. Whenever I finish a run it literally looks like I just stepped out of a swimming pool. Sorry, that’s gross, but I’m trying to make a point: these headphones are tough – all that sweat and I still didn’t have to readjust them once. Get this – they actually have a Lifetime Warranty Against Sweat and Liquipel Sweat Repellent Nano Technology. Fancyyyyyyy!FullSizeRender (13)
  4. One full charge = 8 hours of use. You don’t have to worry about them cutting off in the middle of a marathon or a long run.

The list of features goes on and on. I honestly haven’t discovered anything I don’t like about them. They are just one of those things you don’t realize you need until you have them… It’s like going from a flip phone to an iPhone 6. There’s no going back to regular headphones now!

  1. Great giveaway! I don’t run with headphones, but these will be perfect for someone who does.

  2. Jessica says:

    I don’t usually run with headphones bc they fall out of my ears. Excited to read how these stay put & would love to give them a try!

  3. Katie says:

    I just started running as a way to slim down before my wedding! These headphones sound like they’d solve a lot of my problems! Thanks for the great post 🙂

  4. Ilka says:

    These headphones sound great. Thanks for such a detailed review. We runners are always in need for a good pair of headphones, aren’t we?

  5. Corrina says:

    I really want to try these! I get annoyed by headphone cords while running 🙂

  6. Allison says:

    I have a pair of headphones that I love and I have no idea what brand they are! These seem really cool! Excited to hear more about them.

  7. Oh man, I’ve been wanting to try out these headphones for a while. My headphone cord can get very annoying towards the end of a long run. I’m glad you hear you liked them!

  8. Cords are the worst. I’m always finding myself tugging on the cords and trying to unwind them. So frustrating! These look great! (I’m a sweater too, so no judgement!)

  9. I hate when my earphones won’t stay in when I start to get really sweaty, I feel your pain there! I’m not a big tech-y person so I had never considered wireless headphones but your rave reviews have me curious!

  10. Taylor says:

    These headphones sound AMAZING! I can never seem to find a pair of headphones that stay in and the worst part is hitting the cord by accident and they pop right out of your ears which is not fun while you’re running.

  11. These are awesome! I love that my arms won’t get caught up in wires!

  12. Erin says:

    These are awesome! I have been looking for something like this! 🙂

  13. Jamie says:

    LOVE THESE. I want to get a pair for my boyfriend… it takes him at least 10 minutes to get all his wires situated around his arm band so he doesn’t get tangled during a run or at the gym. Awesome giveaway!! Fingers crossed : )

  14. Liz says:

    These look awesome! My boyfriend had a pair of these and loved them! (Unfortunately he left them out of the case and they got stepped on/broken for good!)

  15. Annmarie says:

    These look awesome! Love that they come in different sizes and don’t fall out- that is great! I have really small ears and headphones don’t tend to stay in usually.

  16. Ed Falcigno says:

    I am a college athlete who is always looking to get the most out of my training, and The BlueBuds can definitely take my training to the next level. If I could win a pair of these, it would totally benefit my training as well as my every day lifestyle! Great looking and great idea!

  17. joe bond says:

    My Daughter Runs all the time this would be great for her

  18. Judith says:

    These look like they would be so helpful on my long runs!

  19. Lisa Maresca says:

    Awesome giveaway. I’m constantly on the hunt for headphones that will withstand a lot of sweat and won’t hit me in the face when I run!

  20. Amanda says:

    After this glowing review how can I not want to try them out! I’ve been considering listening to podcasts on my long runs so these would be perfect.

  21. Suzy says:

    YESSSSS! Pick me! Pick me! I’ve drowned one too many earbuds and I need to get new ones but I’m just scared of buying a pair that don’t fit or aren’t perfect.

  22. Sarah says:

    Those headphones look amazing!

  23. I don’t run with headphones unless I’m on the treadmill, but sometimes when I’m strength training I wear headphones. These would be so great for strength training, since there’s no cord to get in the way of weights. Ryan would love them also – he listens to audiobooks all of the time when he runs.

  24. Aileen says:

    These have been on my dream list for quite some time now! I NEED something sweat proof for these hot summer runs!

  25. geetarnub says:

    thanks for this!

  26. Ken C says:

    Great give away, Depends where and when I am running. Sometimes I wear only one side.

  27. Jenna says:

    I would love to try these on my next marathon! Going wireless is a dream 🙂

  28. Natalia says:

    Great post! 🙂

  29. Ruth C says:

  30. ooooh I hope I win.! lol. Love that they have a weat warranty, I definitely need that, I’m a sweater.lol

  31. I’ve been loving my Yurbuds but I love that these don’t have a cord that can get caught in my arms when I am swinging them wildly at the end of a long run (when my form is crap)! 🙂

  32. John says:

    Awesome giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  36. Fallon says:

    Headphone cords drive me nuts! But I can’t find wireless ones that will stay in my ears. Those plastic tips look like they might work out. Nice review!

  41. Kerry says:

    I also need to listen to music when I run and good earbuds are hard to come by. Thanks for this cool giveaway!

  42. Great giveaway! I always have issues with finding the right headphones, mostly be sure of the sweaty ear situation. Everything falls out. And if they don’t, I often pull them out when I accidentally yank the wires:( headphone fail.

  43. Dejah says:

    I need these headphones!!
