Jaybird has created a few of our favorite headsets in the past, the Jaybird Freedom 2 were one of our favorites of 2017, and this week the company announced the Jaybird X4 Wireless Sport Headphones. Based on the award-winning X-series, the new headset was designed for the runner and outdoor athlete, in any condition.
They new design makes the Jaybird X4 Wireless Sport Headphones sweat proof and waterproof, offering a more comfortable fit with custom sound and eight hours of battery life.
“From trail runs and mountain bike rides to summit scrambles and deep powder days, our passion for the outdoors drives our innovation,” said Jamie Parker, CEO of Jaybird. “The new Jaybird X4 embodies that spirit of versatility – it’s comfortable, rugged and fully waterproof to tackle any run, ride or trail in any condition.”
The company stated that the X4 was designed for “people who are on the move” like runners, bikers, hikers, or anyone that wants to spend some time in the elements. In addition to being sweatproof, the IPX7 waterproof rating means that X4 can handle any inclement weather you encounter: rain, snow or even accidental submersion down to one meter for up to 30 minutes. The new buds provide improved comfort and ergonomics, with new silicon fins and ultra-soft silicon tips in several different sizes to fit almost everyone. They also come with the new exclusive-to-Jaybird Comply Ultra foam tips, featuring unique thermo-reactive foam that conforms to your ear canals for a comfortable and secure fit. The new Speed Cinch cord management system allows users to adjust the length of the cable to allow for the perfect under- or over-ear fit for them.
With eight hours of playtime per charge, X4 can keep your soundtrack going during your longest run or workout. To ensure you can quickly power up and get on the trail, ten minutes of charging will give you one hour of play.
