I just got my second pair of wireless headphones and couldn’t help but start comparing the two pairs.
- Cost: $129
- Pros: These are extremely noise canceling, best headphones I’ve worn in that respect. They’re also very snug. Perhaps too snug. There are different sizes so you can adjust the snugness. The volume and music clarity are also great. I can confirm that running in these babies is no problem and they have a clip so that you can attach it to the back of your shirt or sports bra if you’re bouncing too much.
- Cons: These don’t have a great battery life and drop down to 80% almost immediately upon use. They do charge pretty quickly though so that helps offset the charge life. I keep them in the little pouch and the charger fits into any USB port, so they’re not too cumbersome to recharge.
- Cost: $100
- Pros: Good battery life. Adjustable length and multiple sizes for ear comfort.
- Cons: These are the over-the-ear style headphones, which I hadn’t actually realized when I ordered them. They don’t stay in well for running as a result, but are fine for walking or weight lifting/gym workouts. Too much bouncing just doesn’t work well with them. The music quality is pretty good, but not as good as the JayBirds.
Overall, I’m happier with the JayBirds, despite the shorter battery life.
