The ideal headphones should be as small and as light as possible. Its sound reproduction should be true, crisp, and airy. These are competing requirements from a physics perspective. However, the folks at JayBird have managed to satisfy both sets of requirements AND kept the headphones affordable. We think they did it with magic.
jayBird has always focused their gear toward those who like to listen to music while being active. Their latest headphone offerings, Tiger Eyes and Endorphin Rush, are true to that focus. Unlike the JB-200, these new offerings are wired units. We actually prefer them because there is no need to worry about them running out of power during use.
The difference between the Tiger Eyes and the Endorphin Rush is that the former has an integrated mic and is designed for use with the iPhone, while the Endorphin Rush is designed for active users who like to route all the wires to the back. We'll show you what we mean in the upcoming FirstUse article.
Both sets of headphones are tiny. Their in-ear pieces are ultra-soft and very comfortable. They weigh less than 14g, but can put out amazing sound (20Hz-20KHz, 104dB) due to the high grade Neodymium drivers and titanium-coated diaphrams.
All JayBird headphones come with a hard protective carrying case and accessories (different size eartips, earhooks, cable manager). The Jaybird folks are pretty confident about their gear. They want to make sure users are happy with the product. To prove their point, they have a 60 day no-hassle guarantee and a lifetime warranty on the headphone against damage from sweat.
Both the Tiger Eyes and Endorphin Rush are now shipping. If you have been looking for a pair of high-quality audio headphones which can stand up to the sweat of your workouts, you have just ran out of excuses. [Permalink] - JayBird Headphones
