The Jaybird X3 is a significant improvement over the X2 and one of the top Bluetooth sports headphone currently available.
The Jaybird X3 Wireless Bluetooth headphones are now my favorite Bluetooth earbuds. The MySound app is the reason I love them because I can create my own equalizer sound preference(s) and save it directly to the earbuds. If I want to change to another preset, I just tap on another within the app and I’m good to go. This makes any genre of music sound great.

Jaybird sells the X3 for $130, which isn’t bad for what you get, but we’ve seen them go for $100 at Best Buy, which is well worth the price for the audio fidelity alo... Full review
The fit is much improved. The X3’s features a skinnier shape than their bulky predecessor, and they slide into more ears more easily. If the cable is too long, a simple plastic clip mechanism takes the slack out of the line and keeps it from flapping against your neck. Snapping the removable fins onto the earpieces helps keep the tips in position. As long as you find a good seal with the tips, the sound from the 6mm drivers is not quite excellent and a little harsh at higher volumes. But that’s an acceptable trade-off considering the X3’s ability to withstand rivers of swe... Full review
