What customers say about "Key Specs"
JayBird Freedom Bluetooth Earbuds, Retail Packaging, Midnight Black
  • I really like these. The sound is great. Much better than Skull Candy (which suck anyway, so that's not saying much).
  • The headphones work semi well. Sound quality is decent for its size and they pair pretty easily.
  • There is also solid sound quality. I wouldn't say great, but I thought the sound quality surpassed what you would expect from an inexpensive Bluetooth headset.
  • As for the sound quality? If you are a hardcore audiophile, nothing will every satisfy you so please go away and stop bothering us normals. The sound quality is great, considering it is a Bluetooth and runs on battery, and has significant bass.
  • The sound however is great-if they fit, if they are lose, the sound is dull and not how I would like it to be.
Bose SoundSport (761529-0020) Wireless Headphones, Aqua
  • Initially there seemed to be little bass, but turning up the volume increases the overall frequency range and dynamics.
  • Great range of sound and distance.
  • A strong presence of bass which is totally lacking in many other sets, a nice, balanced frequency range with good instrument separation.
  • I have to say that I definitely like the sound quality and range that I get from the device that I'm streaming from.
  • These stay put while being active and have great sound with a good battery life.
  • Overall the battery life isn't good. The battery drains even after I turn it off.
  • The battery life on the bluetooth head phones does not last that long, but the quality of sound the headphones produce is amazing, far better than other wireless headphones I have owned.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
JayBird Freedom Bluetooth Earbuds, Retail Packaging, Midnight Black
  • They are supposed to fit into the folded part in your ear and yet they don't quite fit well. They seem awkward and I'm thinking I'm using a size too large.
  • This headset is actually quite nice. It has a stylish appearance, is seemingly built well, and is very light. Jaybird also includes a variety of earplug sizes and attachments to suit your personal wearing style.
  • Since they are lightweight, these puppies are very comfortable, and since they are more or less in ear, there are none of the issues with wearing glasses like there are with the Motorola's, and none of the painful ears or temples the Motorola's can cause.
  • In sum, this is a well built and stylish headset. I would actually say it is one of the better headsets in terms of overall weight, comfort and style.
  • Fitting can be a bit of a challenge to find the right combo between plug sizing and ear grips. But that is also one of the major pluses to these headphones - you can get them right for you.
Bose SoundSport (761529-0020) Wireless Headphones, Aqua
  • Needless worry, they are very light weight and have the same type of soft yet durable wing that fits comfortably in your ear that the wired ones have. Very happy with this purchase.
  • Light weight, fit great, and sound awesome.
  • Hey have solid weight which keeps them in your ear.
  • Great quality, sound, light weight and easy to use.
  • Light weight & no cords to get tangled!
  • A little bulky and weighted.

What customers say about "Features"
JayBird Freedom Bluetooth Earbuds, Retail Packaging, Midnight Black
  • The button controls are nice and function when connected to the device. The built-in also mic works decent enough to hello and goodbye. All of these great features led me to believe this was a fantastic headset.
  • Bluetooth range - incredible! With my HTC Incredible 2 Android smart phone, I can holster my phone on my belt or hold it im my hand with NO dropouts! Exceeded even the mfgr expectations!
  • Range is pretty good. I can walk about 20 feet+ away from my phone (unobstructed view) before I start getting cutouts
  • Horrible mic, when talking to others they often said you sound muffled not cleared at all like they described.
  • Bluetooth - button require a firm long press to pair. Somewhat annoying but a small price to pay for durability.
Bose SoundSport (761529-0020) Wireless Headphones, Aqua
  • Bose is the absolute best bluetooth that I have ever purchased. I am a professional driver and I can hear clearly while driving my truck.
  • They have a crisper sound nfc and are way more secure in ear.
  • Bluetooth and NFC pairing was easy. I use the Bose Connect app for controlling and switching between multiple devices.
  • Bluetooth connection very good and the range is huge. I often forget my phone on the treadmill and realize only much later. No disconnection.
  • Microphone is very loud and clear.
  • Headphones are great! The microphone is not great for the phone in a slightly noisy place.
  • Sound is great but microphone does not work that well if there is too much noise in surrounding.

What customers say about "Power"
JayBird Freedom Bluetooth Earbuds, Retail Packaging, Midnight Black
  • The real plus is the long time period they are stay charged and the short amount of time it takes for them to be fully charged.
  • Battery life is pretty good. In the month I have owned these, I have only charged them 3 times following the initial charge, and have yet to fully drain them even after an hour workout and then watching a 3 hour movie on my phone.
  • Great battery life and I have used these for working in the yard, walking the dog, jogging, etc.
  • I lost the charging cable and unfortunately the charging port is not standard so cannot use the micro usb cable. luckily, I had a nikon camera which used the port and I use it now. wish it came with standard port.
  • The battery life was extremely awful. They would only be able to be used for about 2 hours then needed to gain a full charge.
Bose SoundSport (761529-0020) Wireless Headphones, Aqua
  • Great sound, very very little time to recharge and battery life last long enough for me.
  • They let you know how much life is left before recharging.
  • I get 5-6 workouts before having to recharge battery.
  • The battery is long lasting and charged in a respectable amount of time.
  • Charge time is quick and lasts about 6-7 hours.
