You know you love a product when you come home from your runs and tell (or text) your husband, “THESE (yes, I am screaming because I am so excited) are my new favorite piece of running gear. I seriously do not know how I ever lived without them.”
JayBird sent me the BLUEBUDS X a little over a month ago and I have been using them on all of my runs (even the treadmill).
They are wireless headphones that connect to your phone (or any other blue tooth enabled device) via blue tooth. I ALWAYS have my phone with me when I run and so I knew that these would be perfect for me because I hate cords (those darn headphone cords always get stuck in my 4 layers of lip gloss, they always seem to be tangled and get caught on my hands. I can’t tell you how many times my hand has gotten caught on my headphone cord and made my phone or iPod crash to the treadmill belt).
-The sound on these babies are incredible… I like my Britney and Linkin Park to sound good when I am running. I take quality sound while I am running very seriously.
-It feels like you aren’t even wearing any headphones and you have an awesome surround system of music following you for your entire run. They are super comfortable!
-You can ANSWER phone calls and TALK while you run (built in microphone) which means my mom gets to hear me tell her every aspect of my day even more often.
-They are very user friendly and easy to set up. They come with 3 different sizes of ear tips and 3 different sizes of secure fit ear cushions so that they fit your ear perfectly. They don’t fall out which is one of my biggest pet peeves about normal headphones, these ones stay comfortably secure for your entire run.
-The controls on the headphones for volume/switching songs/on & off buttons/phone are super easy to use!
-To charge (they lasted me about a weeks worth of runs ((8 hours)) before I needed to charge them) you just stick the USB Cable into the computer.
The only con that I can think of is that they are a little pricey but if you are a music obsessed runner like I am then they are worth it!
Check out the BLUEBUDS X!!

My favorite type of music to run to is pop and my favorite song to run to right now is Thrift Shop by Macklemore ft. Wanz, I just can’t help but love the beat of that song :).

I listen to Rock & Pop. If I dont have music …. I cannot work out!!
I saw a runner with these at a race a while ago. He had great things to say, haven’t bought them yet, love to win them. :)
Please pick me!
I want to win these for my husband .
Song I listen to in the gym – Flight Facilities – Crave You (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)
Would love a pair of these so I can do away with the wires that become entangled when I’m lifting in the Gym :).
I love your blog! And I would LOVE to win these headphones! Mine are old and the sound is crackly and when I try to run and listen to music I inevitably jerk my head or catch my hand on them and my ipod falls to the ground (loudly!)
My most favorite thing to listen to is pod-casts because it makes the time go faster! Lately it’s been The Skit Guys or Focus on the Family!
I tweeted you too!!
One of my favorite songs to run to is Cake’s Going the Distance for obvious reasons and also good rhythmic reasons. These headphones look great!!
I like to run to my country music playlist!
I love listening to some killer g-easy it may be mellow but the beat really gets my heart pounding the the lyrics are perfect for my situations.
Aww man! if i had a pair of these, I would stop getting tangled in my headphone cord and dying on the treadmill!
I tweeted about the giveaway!
I would like to win these because I typically spend 15 minutes a day un-knotting my headphones.
I love listening to “you can do it” songs! Like “who says” salena gomez and “eyes open” by Taylor swift haha:)
I listen to hip hop and some techno to get really fired up.
I tweeted :):)
Right now I really like running to “Catch My Breath” by Kelly Clarkson.
I’m a new runner but I love running to Katy Perry’s Complete Confection album.
Tweeted this too!
My favorite type of music to run to? Anything with a fast beat! I stick to mostly newer stuff, but I also burn out on music pretty quick, since I listen to that playlist ALL the time!

My favorite workout songs are by Calvin Harris, David Guetta or Skrillex – gotta love the dubstep/electronic music! The Pandora Pop Fitness station is really awesome to run to as well!

I love hip hop! And I would LOVE to win these, they look amazing!
I tweeted about your giveaway, too!
I shared on Facebook!
I MUST listen to fast, up beat music to keep me moving! But, not dance mixes. Too techno for me. I hope I win!! :)
I love running to Madonna. Anything upbeat and modern.
I have a problem with sweat messing up my normal earbuds – Plus, I’m with you, the cord is always getting tangled up! I’ve been looking around at different wireless headphones. It would be great to win a free pair!!!!!
I have some cheaper (not necessarily less expensive) Bluetooth earphones, and I love not having wires. They go over the ear though, so they are kind of bulky. These seem like a higher quality and I love that they come with more than one size of tip for the earbuds.

ah~ so exciting I want to win these headphones! I listen to just about anything, and lately its been pandora, Disney LOL Can you tell I have a 5 year old and an 8 month old?
My favorite artist is Hoodie Allen!
I love Imagine Dragons(:
I am obsessed with Of Monsters and Men!
My favorite type of music is Christian Music. My favorite song is ” Already There” by Casting Crowns. I want to win these headphones because my headphones broke and it would be an out of this world gift for my birthday on Jan. 22nd.
I really love anything upbeat and runworthy:D
I posted on Facebook and Tweeted about this giveaway.
My running station on pandora is my favorite :)
Right now I really love running to Marron 5’s song One More Night I think it is called: ) Get’s me so pumped! The beat is a fantastic pace for me; )
During Christmas I was planning on investing in new headphones but my running shoes were really bad so I figured running with the normal apple headphones is not as bad as running with bad shoes:p
I really love running to Foster the People or Muse right now! I should TOTALLY win these Jaybird earbuds because my nickname has been JAYBIRD FOREVAH! My momma has called me that since I can remember! I also like to talk to her on the phone because she lives out of state and I miss her all the time, like CRAZY! AND jaybird is my email address and I LOVE music! I also don’t want to keep sharing earbuds with my almost 13 year old daughter! Pick me!
I listen to just about anything with a fast beat!!
Oh these are so awesome! I am in the market for a new mp3 player and these would be a perfect addition. (Somehow the headphones that come with mp3 players always get wrecked!)
I usually have a mix of Phish and Pearl Jam and similar bands, or sometimes astronomy podcasts.
I just got into your blog last month…great stuff!
Awesome headphones! I definitely need some for when I’m running with my dogs! Listen to a little if everything, from hall and Oates to snoop dogg! Anything with an awesome beat!!
My favorite song to run to is Some Nights by fun. I have no idea why I love it so much, but it definitely gives me more energy whenever it comes on.
I know I’m late but ill enter anyway. I am a registered nurse and I run to clear my head. After any stressful night (I work 7a-7p) I can clear my head with good music and a healthy run. I like to listen to country because it puts me in a different place, any song that makes me happy and gets me moving.
I love music with a driving beat or certain themes. One of my long time favorites is still Run by Gnarls Barkley. :)
I love to run to Call Me Maybe. It’s such a silly song, but it really motivates me!
Missed the giveway but I am DESPERATE for headphones that fit right in my ears!!!! Seems these may do the trick?? http://www.colorushealthy.com
