Designed for the sport enthusiasts, the new sweat-proof Jaybird X2 will be available in Singapore from today. They are the second generation to the rather popular BlueBuds X, which are standalone bluetooth earbuds for the sports enthusiasts. The new X2s have improved ear fin ergonomics, longer battery life, new vibrant colours, and an enhanced bluetooth signal to match your active lifestyle. This time around, the retail package will also include three sizes of comply sport memory foam ear tips, which were previously sold separately. These foam tips help ensure a better ear canal fit for you to immerse yourself to your workout tunes.
The X2 will be available at all leading electronic retailers from October (today), at the recommended retail price of $259. We will follow up with a review soon!
Key Features of the Jaybird X2
Enhanced Bluetooth Audio – Jaybird developed its own codec for decoding the audio with an enhanced bit rate. The result is crystal clear Bluetooth audio, which rivals leading wired headphones. Jaybird calls the technology Shift™ Premium Bluetooth Audio and the X2 leads the wireless sport category with top-shelf audio performance.
Fashion, Form, & Function – X2 features a circuit board layout that wraps back on itself into a small form factor with a matching sized battery in the corresponding ear. This functional and stylish design, pioneered in the previously released BlueBuds X, is now the benchmark for imitation. X2s come in six vibrant colours to match any style, and are coated in a durable soft-touch matte finish. They are the smallest and most fashionable sport wireless headphones on the market.
Extended Battery – While making the smallest-in-class Bluetooth headphones, Jaybird also designed and tuned the product to operate using less power. This has resulted in category-leading 8 hours of playtime. Users can listen all day, or enjoy a full week of workout sessions. Jaybird calls this Battery HD™.
Enhanced Bluetooth Signal – X2 features what Jaybird calls SignalPlus™, an innovative product architecture and antenna design that eliminates cross-body signal interference and dropout. It is a significant breakthrough and meaningful benefit for active people who become Jaybird brand evangelists once they experience zero-signal-loss for themselves.
Versatile Wear Options – X2’s earphone housing is designed to allow the user to wear the product under-ear, or over-ear with reduced cord length through a cord management clip system. Jaybird calls this X-Fit™ and its over-ear lifts the cord off the neck and provides the most liberating sports music experience. This has been a huge hit with runners as they acknowledge Jaybird’s unique innovation around consumer insight. The under-ear wearing style offers users a non-sports looking product for a more traditional everyday use-case. This configuration is ideal for hands-free phone calls.
Secure Fit – Jaybird’s patented redesigned ergonomic ear fins ensure the highest level of comfort and a superb fit for any activity.
Sweat-Resistant – Improved sweat protection means that X2 takes Jaybird’s legendary durability to the next level. All of X2’s components are treated to ensure the highest standard of sweat resistance. Jaybird backs this up with a lifetime sweat proof warranty.
Comply Memory Foam Ear Tips – Jaybird has now included Premium Comply foam sport ear tips with X2. These tips are exclusively designed for Jaybird X2, delivering maximum noise isolation, fit, and comfort.
Software Updates – Per consumer preference, X2 software updates allow for seamless volume control and an uninterrupted listening experience.
Carrying Case – X2’s redesigned sport silicone carrying case is big enough to fit buds and all in-box accessories comfortably and stylishly in a compact package.
