Jaybird Bluebuds X


Despite some flaws, concerning restrictions on the reproduction quality, wireless headset is very comfortable. This is particularly evident for people with active lifestyles. What can I say, to engage in the gym or running around with wires dangling on his chest is not very nice. That is why the company decided to Jaybird promote their products, with an emphasis on sports orientation set. Today we want to talk about the top model BlueBuds X, in which engineers have tried to combine all their achievements.

Like other headset companies, BlueBuds X is sold in a nice compact package. Inside depicts a man, apparently associated with the sport. Jaybird not cease to remind us, for whom created these headphones.

Seated under a transparent plastic, we are met by corporate case. Judging by the responses of people, he recalls first powder compact. It is difficult to say what inspired the designers, but the rounded shape and a lot of silver inserts cause my association with women’s accessory. Where here to sports? But the reliability of the carrying case does not hold – it protects the headset from any adversity.


The headset itself is extremely compact and simple. This two headphones, connected by a short cable with a flat control panel. The body is made of glossy black plastic with silver accents under the metal. This product is also available in a white version of the design. Headset weight is 13.8 g.

Discount on portability and wireless transmission, playback quality deserves a “good.” BlueBuds X should be fine for most popular genres of music.



Headphones from Jaybird suitable for all users. In BlueBuds X combines comfort, sound quality and long battery life – all this is exactly what we expect from a wireless headset.

V-Moda Crossfade LP


V-Moda Crossfade LP, which in addition to great design, and still have control technology for Apple. Headphones are very loud. And coupled with decent soundproofing get good headphones for use in transportation. Particular attention is drawn to the bass. It is a powerful, deep enough, often felt even leather ears. But there lurks the problem. The bass is not too ITEM, at the first opportunity is ready to start. Also, there is a lack of brightness of the high range. Thus, a combination of factors have quite a “dark” sound color.

What’s in the box:

  • headphones
  • a simple audio cable,
  • audio cable with remote control,
  • the adapter to the “big” jack 6.3 mm


The headphones very fared well with electronics, but in a quick “heavy” music can manifest lack of speed and detail. Anything slower clears very nice. I spent the assessment, based on experience with the use of the iPhone 4, so that when connected to a more serious sound path may change slightly. However, I bought them just for the iPhone, so the rate as is.

And finally, a brief account of the remote and microphone. Remote convenient, but quite massive. Three buttons control playback / challenge and two volume buttons. All works properly, the voice is transmitted bearable.

To sum up, I would say that for the money that they ask for the manufacturer, the selection is quite good. A V-Moda asks for them $200. As for our stores, the prices here grow up to 11-12 thousand rubles. And this despite the fact that the booking on the official site, you can greatly customize their headphones by color trim headband, metallic pads, put on their drawing. Can be found for $110


Grado SR80i


Grado SR80i headphones are generally intended for private listening. Therefore, most of all, they have a closed structure that does not disturb the neighbors performance of music and travel. But such a structure creates a lot of internal reflections, body vibrations and standing waves – all this seriously reduces the quality of the sound.

What’s left to do? In Grado approached this problem with dismaying ease: they create an open headphones that transmit sound out almost in all directions, but for those who wear them, they sound great.

However, the design of the “sieve of sound” – not the only disadvantage of this model. Powerful cups, headband with leather covering and a short metal rod create the impression that these headphones are removed from the head of the radio station announcer 50s.


But SR80i has one huge plus, and it is their sound – perfectly rhythmic, incredibly detailed, musical, natural, and (with quality recordings) is simply superb.

Do not take them on the trip: your neighbors rasslyshat everything to the last note, and yet not everyone will be glad to get acquainted with the work of Michael Buble.

But if you listen to music at home, where you will not disturb anyone, SR80i are great for the category, value for money above all praise. Roughtly cost between $99 – $130
