Overview: The Jaybird Freedom 2 in-ear wireless sport headphones are designed to
withstand the rigors of your workout. Not only are the headphones waterproof and
sweat-proof, but they will stay in place, no matter what your level of activity.
The Freedom 2 comes with four pairs of silicone finned ear tips, a charging
clip, and a shirt clip. Your headphones and accessories can be
stored in the supplied water-resistant neoprene pouch.
Ear Tips: The Jaybird Freedom 2 in-ear headphones come with
four pairs of ear tips with integrated fins that help keep the ear buds securely
in your ears. There are four sizes of finned ear tips, numbered from smallest
(#1) to largest (#4). The medium (#2) size tips are installed on the ear buds
out of the box. The ear tips should be twisted when inserted so that the fins
tuck in under the fold of your outer ear.
Over/Under Ear: The Freedom 2s can be worn in different ways depending upon your
intended use. If you wear them during rigorous sports, running, or biking, it is
recommended that you choose the over-ear sport fit for a more secure fit. If using the
Freedom 2s for casual listening, the
under-ear casual fit is recommended.
Cable Management: The Freedom 2s have a connecting cable
that runs between the ear buds. The included SpeedFit cord clips make it easy to
take up the slack in the cable. Pulling the SpeedFit cord clips apart will
shorten the cord (recommended with the over-ear sport fit). Pulling the cord
from the ends will lengthen the cord (recommended for the under-ear casual fit).
The included shirt clip lets you attach the
cord to the collar of your shirt for even more security.
Bluetooth: The Freedom 2s are equipped with Bluetooth version 4.1, allowing you to
listen to music or take phone calls wirelessly from your smartphone. You can
also pair it to your smartwatch (if it supports at least Bluetooth 2.1). The
headphones have an effective range of 33 feet, with an optimal range of 2 feet.
The Freedom 2s are compatible with the following profiles: Handsfree, Headset,
A2DP, AVRCP, and SPP. Some advanced Bluetooth features include:
- Multipoint: Multipoint allows you to be connected to two devices
simultaneously. While you are paired to your laptop and listening to music,
you can accept a phone call on your paired cellphone. The Freedom 2 will remember
up to 8 paired Bluetooth devices, and can be actively connected to two of
them at a time.
- Share Me: The Share Me feature allows you to share the music you're
listening to with another pair of Freedom 2 headphones.
MySound App: The Jaybird MySound app, available from the App Store and Google
Play, lets you customize your EQ settings to your listening tastes. You can
sample the EQ presets of numerous athletes and artists, and download the ones
you like to your headphones. You can even create your own sound profile and save
it to your Freedom 2s or share it with others. The app will accurately display
your headphones' battery status as a percentage (to within 1%). The MySound app is compatible with
Android devices running OS 4.4 and up, and with iPhones and iPads with iOS 9.0
Battery: The Jaybird Freedom 2 is powered by a 3.7-volt, 60
mAh Lithium-Ion rechargeable
battery. To charge the battery, you'll need to attach the included Charging Clip
to the headphones' in-line controller, then attach the USB charging cable to the
clip. The battery charges in approximately 2.5 hours (5V 500mA power source recommended).
The Charging Clip has an internal battery (125 mAh) that gives you extra
playback time. A fully charged battery in the headphones provides
approximately 4 hours of playback time. Standby Time is approximately 110 hours.
Attach the Charging Clip for an additional 4 hours. The Quick Charge feature will provide 1
hour of headphone playback time, plus 1 hour of play time with the Charging
Clip, after a 20 minute charge.
In-line Remote/Microphone: The headphones have an in-line 3-button remote
control for power, Bluetooth pairing, music playback, and phone calls. The
