USB charging - Jaybird Bluebuds X

Many riders often use and love headphones. JayBird has a new take on delivering quality Bluetooth audio to your ears. The JayBird Blue Buds X are wireless Bluetooth headphones with a claimed battery life of 8 hours. They’re rewritten the Bluetooh audio with what they’re calling ‘Shift’ to work seamlessly over a long area without the typical interruptions that can often occur.

JayBird - Bluebuds X earbud and control module

Traditionally when sound is compressed on a phone or music player, sent through the air by Bluetooth connection, and decompressed by the Bluetooth headphones, there is a substantial amount of packet loss. It means your music comes through lacking some soul, lacking some punch, and with a certain amount of static-like white noise.

Through perfecting a custom implementation of the native Bluetooth SBC codec, which we call Shift™, we deliver a level of purity and sound that rivals and challenges the very best in wired headphones.

A great feature of Shift™ is that it’s pair and play, meaning, nothing special is required on your phone or music device, just standard Bluetooth, Shift™ takes care of the rest.

JayBird offers a sweat proof warranty as well in addition to providing a unique X-fit design that moves the headphone cable off of your neck if desired in either an over ear or under ear fit.

The package includes a carrying case as well as a variety of wings and earbud adapters to help fit to the various ear sizes out there.

Bluebuds X Packaging

BlueBuds X Premium Bluetooth Buds include

  • 3 pair ear tips (S,M,L) none installed.
  • 3 pair secure fit ear cushions (S,M,L)
  • 2 X-Fit cord management clips
  • Standard Micro USB Cable
  • Premium Protective Carry Case

Built into the Bluebuds X cable is a control module that has a wireless microphone built in as well so you can answer calls wirelessly as well as change the music volume and audio tracks wirelessly.

People were walking a good ways away from their booth and the audio was still coming in clean and clear. Pricing isn’t cheap at $169.95 but they’ve packed a lot of neat features into their headphones that others don’t offer that is quite appealing.  You can learn more at http://www.jaybirdgear.com/bluebuds-x-bluetooth-headphones

DSP Bighorn

We’ve taken a look at the DSP Bighorn and their dropper seatpost has been on a few of our bikes in the past. Cable routing is external currently but we’ve heard they’re working on a stealth/internal option for the future. They’ve added a variety of colors to customize the Bighorn as well. The post is easy to get to return at a good speed and is able to stop in any position in its travel. They’ve got a variety of locks to help ensure the post won’t move once its set. At $265 it’s one of our favorite dropper seat posts.
