Jaybird X4 wireless sport headphone Features review

Design

Jaybird X4 is the most flexible kind of wireless headphones. They are easy to carry, as there is no chunky neckband. Jaybird X4 has a similar design like the whole X family, but there are few changes. These are in-ear hook headphones which help to keep them in place while exercising. The hooks are made up of silicon which makes them even more flexible. The lighter top part of X4 makes headphones easier to fit. The fins do apply the pressure on your inside ear, which make you feel uncomfortable if you wear it for a long hour but with Jaybird X4 you get 3 sizes of fins and 4 pair of tips from which you can make good pair. These headphones are IPX7 water resistance which means these can be submerged in water for 30 minutes.

Sound

The Jaybird X4 above average sounding pair of wireless in-ear headphones. Earlier, Jaybird used to focus on sound quality but now they focus on design and comfort. They have deep and punchy bass with an even mid-range and a well- balanced treble. The bass is slightly overemphasized. On certain A and T sound, they feel like a bit sharp. They are most noticeable on vocals and cymbals. Also, they don’t have a speaker like a soundstage. You use the Jaybird MySound app which lets you customize the sound as per you liking with the provided parametric EQ and sound profile.

They don’t have any ANC feature but still block a decent amount of ambient noise and minimally leak which means you can raise the volume of music to block out more noise without disturbing people around you with your music. They are great for working out.
