A new pair of Jaybird wireless headphones will be hitting the market this year. The company has detailed a premium sport wireless-headphone design, while showing off the new Freedom Wireless Bluetooth Buds.

The Freedom Wireless Buds are the fifth-generation of the Freedom family of devices. Offering a new style, top quality sound and increased comfort, the company debuted their smallest earbuds ever designed in a new trailer released today (shown below).

According to the company’s announcement, the buds are “both functional and refined, packing premium features into a bite-sized package.”

The company went on to describe the new device saying, “Jaybird’s passion for great product doesn’t stop at great buds. Through the MySound app, you can customize and save your own personal sound to Freedom from your favorite music service or the Bluetooth-enabled music device you use.”

“This latest generation of Freedom liberates our lives like never before,” said Judd Armstrong, founder and CEO of Jaybird. “These micro-sized tapered buds deliver our best-ever sound while featuring a reduced size that fits all ears, all in a low-profile fit that resonates with everyone. The over-ear fit and elegant metal accents of Freedom bring a fashionable element while also being more rugged than ever, offering the freedom to bring your music anywhere, from mountain to motorcycle, thanks to the buds’ helmet friendly breakthrough form.”

With Jaybird Freedom, customers will find sand blasted metal, with accented housing in a fashionable, small package. Traditionally, in-ear Bluetooth buds use plastic materials to assist with signal performance, but Jaybird moved all electronics to its miniaturized three button controller, while still delivering an eight hours of play time (four hours play time with an additional four hours through the listen-while-you-charge charging clip).

If you need a battery boost, clip the lightweight charger on while driving to the gym or during your workout and get an extra hour of playtime in just 20 minutes. So from the gym, to the streets, trails, office or anywhere in-between Jaybird Freedom means you’ll never miss a beat.

One of Jaybird’s hallmark design standards is drop-free music while offering incredibly small products. Jaybird continues to deliver this standard in Freedom, providing a huge win for active people where a lot of movement will not trip up the signal between phone and Freedom.
