“If there’s one thing unique about the new Jaybird Freedom, it’s that it demands customization from its owner,” Guido Gabriele reports for iLounge. “Though the Freedom is currently being sold alongside Jaybird’s very good X2, it feels like a successor in every way.”
“In the Freedom we find a number of major design changes – evidence of choices that Jaybird has made about how Bluetooth sport headphones should fit, feel, and sound. While these might not be ideal for all users out of the box, there is ample room for tweaks and adjustments. If music is an indispensable part of your workout, we think the Jaybird Freedom is worth checking out,” Gabriele reports. “The first and most striking change we see in the Freedom’s design is the substantial reduction in size from the X2 and the switch to metal construction. The increase in build quality is undeniable, and the low profile of Freedom is a substantial upgrade from the X2.”
Gabriele reports, “Where the X2 had just minor improvements over the Bluebuds X, the Jaybird Freedom is the clear result of refinement and evolution beyond the original formula.”

MacDailyNews Take: We’ve been using wireless Jaybirds for some time now (currently the Jaybird X2 Sport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones) which we’ve found are easy to charge, easy to pair, light and comfortable, and work perfectly with our Apple Watches and iPhones.
