What customers say about "Key Specs"
JayBird Tarah Pro Wireless Sport Headphones (Titanium/Glacier)
  • The battery life is what I expected, they're comfortable, and they fit securely in my ears.
  • The sound is great, battery life as can be expected, comfort depends on your ear holes.
  • The battery lasts a great amount of time, and prompts you with the percentage of charge whenever you turn them on.
  • The battery life is only middling. I get maybe 4-5 hours out of a charge.
  • The battery life is sub-optimal for sure. I would say you're lucky to see the 6 hours they advertise, so I charge them every night just to make sure they won't be dead when I wake up the next day.
JayBird RUN XT True Wireless Headphones (Black/Flash)
  • Sound quality is pretty good out-of-the-box (clear and loud), but a little thin at the higher frequencies.
  • 4 hour battery life is really good for "true wireless" earbuds. That's almost as good as the Apple earpods, but these sound way better than Apple and also get much louder.
  • 4 hours is plenty of battery life for running or workouts.
  • These bluetooth un-corded earbuds carry on the tradition of great sound which is clean, present and without artificial boosting.
  • Headphones are discharged quicker than 4 hours, I have enough only for 2 hours.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
JayBird Tarah Pro Wireless Sport Headphones (Titanium/Glacier)
  • The sound quality is better than impressive. How about the weight of them? They are amazingly lightweight.
  • I really like these, hold a decent charge, good fit, very light, synch easily, good bluetooth range, good sound.
  • Nice sound, nice comfort, very light, etc. the smart phone app is helpful in changing your equalizer settings.
  • They're incredibly light possibly lighter than the Soundsports. I now know how people can forget they have headphones on.
  • Th ey are light, fit well, are sweatproof, isolate noise, and have customizable EQ.
JayBird RUN XT True Wireless Headphones (Black/Flash)
  • The portable charging case is handy when I'm traveling, but not something I use every day.
  • The case is not too large, but not too small, either. It is solid and I feel it gives a good amount of protection to the buds.
  • For working out while traveling, through, these are compact and convenient!
  • I don't know if my ears are smaller than average but even the smallest size bud provided doesn't fit my ears well enough to provide good sound.
  • My husband has Run XT and they are lightweight. They did not stay in my ears very well at all.

What customers say about "Features"
JayBird Tarah Pro Wireless Sport Headphones (Titanium/Glacier)
  • They are good in the gym because they don't move around or pop out while I'm working out.
  • Low battery warning is non-intrusive and not at 1000% volume which is surprisingly difficult to find in bluetooth earbuds.
  • The controls are easy to use and I can tell the buttons apart just by feeling them which makes it easier.
  • If you like customizing things, the app does let you change the EQ and what the buttons do.
  • Which leads into my only complaint: they are not very comfortable for long term listening.
JayBird RUN XT True Wireless Headphones (Black/Flash)
  • Fortunately, Jaybird has a great smartphone app you can use to equalize the sound.
  • These earbuds are waterproof, which is great for rainy days or people who sweat a lot.
  • You can download the app and get pretty specific control over all of the frequencies.
  • I love that it comes with the different sizes. The app also has a great sizing guide, along with a part of the app that allows you the see how the fit compares to what it should look like.
  • Comfortable and easy to insert into the ear. 3 different size options included for the eartips and the wings.

What customers say about "Power"
JayBird Tarah Pro Wireless Sport Headphones (Titanium/Glacier)
  • I would not agree with the battery life claim but they charged back up insanely fast.
  • Sound quality is good for the size and they are well sealed to protect against water damage. I can go over a week or two without having to charge.
  • Сharger is easy to use and provides a great, tight connection. Сharges quickly.
  • This was my second pair of Jaybirds. Both times the earbuds stopped charging and would not turn back on no matter how many reset techniques I tried. A complete waste of money.
  • Love these headphones. My only complaint is that their charging system is a proprietary connection instead of a standard one.
JayBird RUN XT True Wireless Headphones (Black/Flash)
  • Good battery life, perfect for the gym. I have had a few wireless buds and these are the best.
  • Solid battery life: wear 4-5 days a week, about 2.5 hrs per day. Charge pod every 7 days.
  • The battery life is great. The case has an additional charge. I think all in, I got about 12 hours before I had to charge them. So it's very generous and they charge up pretty quick too.
  • The charging "pill" will keep them charged for up to a week in my case. I usually work out for a little over an hour each day.
  • They didn't hold a charge for more than 2 hours.
