General Specifications
About the Product
Unlock your potential with XTfree, our most secure and sweat resistant wireless sport earbud. Unlike any other wireless earbuds, XTfree utilizes 3 proprietary technologies (FitFin, Sticky Gels, Fix) to work together and stay locked in place.
The Jaybird X2 are great sports headphones and a good choice for most use cases. They have a stable wireless design. a decent sound that unfortunately isn't as customizable as the jaybird X3 but should still be good enough for most and they barely leak. They also block ambient noise better than some noise canceling models which makes them a good option in quiet and loud environments.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Skullcandy XTFree
  • The battery life is insane. Granted, I don't use them very often, but I bought these like 6 months ago and charged them that day.
  • The connection is awesome. I can leave my phone and keys on the shelf at the gym and still have my buds on.
  • The Bluetooth connection is very good and it only "skips" once in a while, my iPhone software update helped this occur even less.
  • The battery life is significantly shorter than expected. I tested them and they last 4 hours at 50% volume.
  • Like most bluetooth headphones they have signal loss occasionally through the body, but more than my other pairs
JayBird X2-M Sport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones - Midnight Black
  • The headphones themselves have great audio quality, and the materials used felt nice.
  • Great build quality and nice packaging. Color and material is nice.
  • The product is great. Build quality and material is the best. Bluetooth connection goes unstable sometimes but overall, its a great wireless headphone that id the best for active life style.
  • This connects very quickly to my phone but I attempted connecting them to my laptop but failed and i was upset.
  • I am losing Bluetooth connections, phone capabilities have degraded to the point my callers cannot understand me, and the controls functions intermittently.

What customers say about "Features"
Skullcandy XTFree
  • They come with your standard selection of earbud sizes which do a good job of passive isolation of surrounding noise.
  • It literally twist locks in your ear, connects fast, working well with my iphone, looks and feel sweat resistant and good noise isolation.
  • The strap at the back bounces a little but they stay in my ears, the sound is great and the controls are easy to work.
  • For my taste a little too snug in the ear and quickly become uncomfortable.
  • These headphones do NOT have very good Bluetooth range since the receiver is so small.
JayBird X2-M Sport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones - Midnight Black
  • The microphone works really well, even in a gym environment. I don't like to speak loudly when on the phone and with these I don't have to if I have the cord under my chin.
  • The controls are easy to use and are lightweight enough, that it does not tug or pull on the headphones when I run.
  • It's great with passively isolating sound. No sound leakage, and I can keep the volume low.
  • The microphone and controls are now tucked up behind your left ear which means voice control and phone calls are problematic.
  • Very limited volume, very poor sound isolation. Much of this is due to the ear to plug interface. You get foam or silicon, dome shaped plugs.
