Now let me start by saying, these cost a hefty $179 plus taxes if you pay them.  Getting that out of the way, these are some GREAT earbuds.

Connections – True Wireless? Yes they are, and I’ve only experienced a couple of times with a dropped connection, and it was only for a sec or so.

Sound – you get the support from the app, and can control the sound from within the app. It has the built in equalizer, and it’s really easy to adjust to your liking.

Battery Life – These have been on the same charge for the last 2 weeks of me using them, and I don’t see them needing a charge anytime soon.  The battery case charges the earbuds, and the case stays charged for a while.  Jaybird claims 12 hours of use, with the addition of the case.

Comfort and feel – They feel pretty good in the ear, and this might be my only gripe.  The feeling that they might fall out your ears easy, and that will be money down the drain.  Other than that, I don’t have any major complaints.

If you are a fitness, you are surely going to like the JayBird RUN earbuds.   They do cost close to $200, but this will be something to keep you going while you are training.  I’ve got a link below, and a short video on my thoughts.
