What customers say about "Key Specs"
JayBird X4 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for Sport, Fitness and Running
  • Battery life had been consistent with what was promised. It fits very securely and I have complete confidence while running.
  • Sound quality is much better than the OE Apple ones. Clearer and tighter bass, well defined mids and sparkling highs. Hearing instruments in the mix now that were inaudible before.
  • The battery life is around 8 hours after about two to three months of usage.
  • After only a few months, the battery life has already degraded substantially and now provides about half the duration it did initially.
  • Garbage product. After a month of light usage the battery life shortened dramatically. Went from working for around 6 hours on a full charge to just 1-2.
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.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
JayBird X4 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for Sport, Fitness and Running
  • Battery life is less than I would like, but with the compact size I realize that there is a tradeoff so that’s not a realistic expectation.
  • It fits very securely and I have complete confidence while running.
  • Love the sound quality and that they fit n my ears and cancels out extraneous sound.
  • Honestly don’t like the size of the ear buds it comes with, if you have small ears.
  • This is no small thing as I've had other wireless buds where you couldn't tell the play/pause from the volume up/down.
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.

What customers say about "Features"
JayBird X4 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for Sport, Fitness and Running
  • I like that you can customize the EQ sound with the downloadable app.
  • You don't have to keep the app open for the customized sound to stay which is nice.
  • The fit isnt bad. I have ridiculously small ears so I'm glad they give you several interchangeable sizes to play around with.
  • They fit well into the ear and include several different inserts that help to customize the fit to your ears.
  • The Bluetooth connection of the buds constantly get interrupted when I'm walking while connected to my phone that is 3 feet away in any of my pockets.
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.

What customers say about "Power"
JayBird X4 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones for Sport, Fitness and Running
  • They stay charged well, and also charge quickly. The changeable ear pieces are nice.
  • The battery charge feature is the most important to me, though. It's handy to know when to recharge, so your phones don't die unexpectedly in the middle of a session.
  • These headphones offer 8 hours of playtime on a single charge.
  • The fast charging is burning up the battery. Never had that issue with the X3's.
  • Decent at blocking noise, water still runs into my ears, terrible battery life, especially since they just stopped charging altogether.
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.
