Jaybird Targets Athletes with Earbuds that are Wireless and Waterproof

Jaybird is targeting athletes with wireless earbuds designed to withstand sweat and adverse weather.

The Bluetooth-based Run XT earbuds ($180) are IPX7-rated — meaning they can be submersed in up to 3 feet of water — making them ideal for use during strenuous workouts. A selection of fins and ear tips is included to ensure a secure and comfortable fit. Four different size fins are provided along with oval and round ear tips in small and medium sizes.

Users can adjust sound using EQ controls provided by the Jaybird app and use buttons on the earbuds to make or take calls and play/pause or skip music tracks; an omnidirectional microphone is integrated into the buds.

Rated battery life is 4 hours with a 2-hour charge using the supplied USB charging case, which can deliver an extra hour of playtime with a 5-minute quick charge. A USB charging cable is included.

Jaybird offers free shipping and a 30-day money-back guarantee.
