[eBay.ca] Jaybird Run Wireless In-Ear Headphones Jet - $49.99 + $12.99 Shipping

Product: Product is brand new in original packaging. Reviews fare quite well despite some individuals reporting problems and having complaints about the headphones (this seems to be the case across the board for all headphone purchases though). Overall they are a good bass heavy truly wireless workout headphone at this price. Individuals wanting headphones to watch media such as YouTube videos should pass on these however, as audio sync delay is reported. While other options such as refurbished Jabra Elite 65t obviously exist around this price point, this is a good buy for people not wanting to go down the refurbished route which can have some cons of its own.

Personally I have done a lot of research on truly wireless sports headphones the past week, had I not been able to pick up a pair of Bose Soundsport Free during the Walmart sale I probably would have purchased these at this price.

Due diligence on seller: Seller is top rated plus with 99.8% positive feedback. Although there has been claims the seller uses shill accounts to bid up their items on ebay, the majority of individuals report a positive experience across various forum boards and here on RFD.

At the time of posting there are 9 available.

I was previously a big fan of Jaybirds, owning many models. The last semi reliable model was X2. The X3, X4 and Freedom were all plagued with issues and a short life span. Can’t speak to this model but I would trust the bad reviews.

Bought a pair of soundpeats truefree+ ($35) and they are great. Had them for over a year and recently washed them in washing machine. Figured they were goners and ordered a new pair right away. To my surprise the next day after they dried out the washed pair and charging case all worked perfectly.

Not a fan of this particular model, but this is a great price for the product.

I second this.
Was happy with x2, so when they capped out after a decent span of use, got the x3s and needed warranty replacement, then freedoms needed replacing twice before jaybird eventually declined to cover for failures. I don't think any of the Microphones functioned past 6 months besides the x2

I have the Run XTs. I find battery life is nowhere near as promised. I can get a bit over 2 hours.

Ditto on the X4. They can barely keep a signal to my Pixel 5 in my back pocket. Tried to solve the issue for a long time then just gave up.
They sit in a drawer now.

Wasn't it when Logitech bought Jaybird they went downhill?

Mine failed from sweat while working out and I had a horrible experience with customer service for replacement

Yes, Logitech destroyed Jaybird.

There's no excuse for $35 headphones on amazon to be out-performing and out-lasting $200 Jaybirds.

Hey, my headphones just died and I'm looking for a new pair. I'm completely new to the true wireless buds. I'm not an audiophile either, just need something for walks and has a decent mic. Would you still recommend those $35 dollar earbuds from Amazon or do you have other recommendations for $100 or less?

Thanks!
