About the Jaybird X3 Wireless

They stay put, so you can put in work

When buying or reviewing sports headphones, I always ask myself first: "What stops these earbuds from slipping around or falling out?" The sweat-proof Jaybird X3 wireless headphones come with different-sized silicone ear "fins" to help keep them in place. And you can route their connecting cord either below or up and around your ear so they feel comfortable — even inside a bike or ski helmet.

They stay put, so you can put in work

When buying or reviewing sports headphones, I always ask myself first: "What stops these earbuds from slipping around or falling out?" The sweat-proof Jaybird X3 wireless headphones come with different-sized silicone ear "fins" to help keep them in place. And you can route their connecting cord either below or up and around your ear so they feel comfortable — even inside a bike or ski helmet.

Wireless freedom

You won't have to run a cord to your phone, thanks to built-in Bluetooth. So while you pound the pavement, hit the trail, or just mow the lawn — admittedly the extent of my physical outdoors activity — the X3s will stay in your ears and out of your way.   

Hard-hitting sound you can customize

These earbuds are tuned to deliver a energetic sound profile that keeps you motivated. That means you get the punchy, powerful bass that makes Jaybird a popular choice with the gym crowd. And if you want to tweak their signature sound a bit, Jaybird's MySound app is available for download on Apple® or Android™ devices. You can adjust the EQ and customize the sound using the app.   

A generous choice of premium-quality ear tips

Jaybird is hyper-focused on ensuring you find a good fit. How do we know? They've included three pairs of ear fins and a six pairs of ear tips, so you can find ones that match your ears well. There are three sizes of silicone tips and three sizes of Comply™ memory foam tips.

I'm a big fan of Comply foam tips — they're my personal favorite — because they fit snug but feel light and unobtrusive. Just be advised that these foam tips create a tight seal that isolates noise. That's great when you're working out or cooling off inside, but you probably want to stick with silicone tips when you need to be more aware of your surroundings.

Product Research


Overview: The Jaybird X3 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 X3 comes with six pairs of silicone and memory foam ear tips, secure-fit ear fins, cord clips, and a shirt clip. Your headphones and accessories can be stored in the supplied water-resistant pouch.

Ear Tips: The Jaybird X3 in-ear headphones feature smaller ear buds than previous models to fit smaller ear canals. It is small enough to allow you to wear them inside of a full helmet. The package includes both silicone and Comply memory foam ear tips in three sizes each. Three sizes of ergonomic Secure-Fit ear fins are available for greater comfort and fit.

Over/Under Ear: The X3s 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. The two included cord clips can be used to take up the slack of the connecting cable and get a snug fit around the back of the head. If using the X3s for casual listening, the under-ear casual fit is recommended. The included shirt clip lets you attach the cord to the collar of your shirt.

Bluetooth: The X3s are equipped with Bluetooth version 4.1, allowing you to listen to music or take phone calls wirelessly from your smartphone. The headphones have an effective range of 30 feet, and are compatible with the following codecs: AAC, SBC and Modified SBC, and profiles: HFP, HSP, 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 X3 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 X3 headphones.
  • Smartwatch Compatibility: You can sync your smart phone with a smartwatch, and leave your phone at home while you run or ride. This feature works with the Apple WatchOS, Samsung Tizen, and Android Wear.

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 X3s or share it with others. The MySound app is compatible with Android devices running OS 4.4 and up, and with iPhones and iPads with iOS 9.0 or later.

Battery: The Jaybird X3 is powered by a 3.7-volt Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. The battery charges in approximately 2.5 hours via the included USB cable (5V 500mA power source recommended). A fully charged battery provides approximately 8 hours of playback time. The Quick Charge feature will provide 1 hour of playback time 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 remote includes an integrated omnidirectional microphone for phone calls and voice assistance.

I had the first generation of this wireless headphone and was really impressed with the sound and performance. I ended up recharging these first gen units more than anticipated and burnt them out.

I bought these looking for a better quality wireless earbud. I've been through two pairs of another brand (warranty replacement) in the last year and a half for a hardware failure. Unfortunately, the replacement pair has failed in the same way as the originals. Time to try something new. Hoping these are the answer. [ Rob  Oct 08, 2018 ]
sale [ Michael  Apr 15, 2018 ]
Pros: They sound great They provide plenty of cushion and fin options for a comfortable fit. The controls are very intuitive. They stay put when I'm running. The Jaybird app provides incredibly flexible EQ options to allow me to dial the sound in, and I can store multiple EQ curves. Cons: The overall max volume level is a bit timid for my tastes. That can be tweaked significantly in the app by adjusting the level of the overall EQ curve (i.e. volume) Well done, Jaybird! [ GEORGE  Mar 14, 2018 ]
Good reviews [ Bill  Feb 06, 2018 ]
color [ Juan  Dec 12, 2017 ]
I've owned multiple pairs of the jaybird earbuds and I've always loved them. Too bad they don't last when sent through the washing machine or I'd still be using my first pair. [ BRENT  Dec 03, 2017 ]
Good reviews [ Paul  Jun 27, 2017 ]
Reviews [ ADALBERTO  Sep 30, 2018 ]
I had a pair of Jaybird X3's until about a week ago. They were the best earbuds ever. Unfortunately, my girlfriend tried to mail them to me, but didn't threw away the tracking number. They never showed up. This time, I decided to try the sweet red color. Flash to match the sound! [ nathan  Sep 28, 2018 ]

Ratings [ PRESTON S  Apr 05, 2018 ]
I researched several earbuds over the last week. These seemed to have the best features for what I intend to use them for, which is running. My second choice was the Bose Sound Sport, but in reviews, it was mentioned that they do not seal to your ear, they kind of sit outside your ear canal. Not so good for running on a treadmill in a noisy gym. [ S  Mar 15, 2018 ]

Battery life, sound quality reviews [ Frank  Jul 01, 2017 ]
I just wanted a really good pair of bluetooth earbuds that would't fall out my ear and comfortable to work out in. Also, I liked the red color. [ Osman  Jun 16, 2017 ]
Gift request. [ Mark  Aug 02, 2018 ]
Based on reviews and great price! [ Karen  Dec 20, 2017 ]
Compatible with android device. [ Christina  Dec 19, 2017 ]
The Jaybird X3's have a very sleek and elegant design. They are water and sweat resistant which according to reviews appear to hold up better to the elements. They have a proprietary charging system that even though seems to be an inconvenience it appears to improve the water resistant aspect. I am excited to see if they will perform and hold up to the elements as I believe they will. [ KEITH A  Dec 17, 2017 ]

Good Reviews and I choose Crutchfield because they offered free shipping and no Tax. [ Lynda  Jul 27, 2017 ]
I have small ears, a lot of buds too large or uncomfortable for me. These look small and compact. [ Irina  Jul 21, 2017 ]
Wife has the jaybird x2 headphones and she loves them. These appear to have some big improvements on an already great product, so i look forward to using them. [ anthony  Jul 17, 2017 ]

1 question already asked

I am not a fan of many of these wireless headphones that the neck wire is flimsy/thin? I was wondering if this model has a decent diameter/weight to them. Any inputs here are appreciated.
[ FRANK  May 15, 2018 ]
4 answers
the wire that connects the buds is not flimsy or thin at all they are very sturdy. The wire is flat and the buds themselves are heavier than average for earbuds, despite this they never fall out of my ears when i use the wings
[ EMAN  May 29, 2018 ]
The weight was very little and seemed adequate but I didn't like the sound at all.
[ Beaver  May 22, 2018 ]
There is a cord management clip that you can thread the wire to adjust to your liking. They are light and I am still using both the X2 and X3. Sound quality is good off my Apple Watch for a run or recreational use. I have not had any issues with the wire fraying and I have used both sets frequently.
[ Troy  May 22, 2018 ]
The neck wire is fine and well made.
[ JOSE L  May 22, 2018 ]
