Jaybird Vista 1

Jaybird Vista Bluetooth Wireless Headphones Review

Let's kick this off with a really clear statement, we really didn’t totally love the Jaybird RUN. It was a good first shot of course, but it left us wanting and the performance of their other headphones like the Tarah Pro were much more convincing from the quality and performance perspective. When the Vista was released, we were excited to say the least because we saw a lot of what ...

Jaybird Tarah Pro Bluetooth Headphones Review

We always love to test out headphones from Jaybird as they truly produce some of the best running or active bluetooth headphones on the market. In run, they all tend to perform consistently well, but the new Tarah Pros have taken it to a whole new level. They have dialed it up a notch and terms of quality and performance that is hard to match anywhere in the Jaybird line. ...

Aftershokz Trekz Air Bluetooth Headphones Review

We have reviewed a number of headphones here, but none are perhaps more interesting than those from Aftershokz. They have built their reputation on building solid performing headphones, but with one catch... they don’t go on your ear. Instead, the Aftershokz system uses bone based audio conduction and sit just in front of your ear. Recently, we had our chance to get up close with the Trekz Air Bluetooth model ...

Jaybird X3 Bluetooth Headphones Review

This year brought a new addition to the Jaybird lineup and a successor to the amazing X2 bluetooth headphone, the X3. Everyone here love the XT one while others fell out of favor, stop working, the exit to just keep plugging along. We had some minor grapes of course, but the X3 brought some new features which we were hopeful would remedy some of those earlier issues. Jaybird is an interesting ...

JBL Reflect Mini Bluetooth Headphones Review

We look at a lot of headphones here and lately we’ve been playing around with the JBL Reflects. They are a budget friendly mid-range wireless model built on JBL’s deep audio quality roots. JBL is known for making some great speakers, so we were definitely curious how their foray into the mini Bluetooth world would go. Out of the Box The out of the box experience is somewhat anti-climactic. It is a ...

Lumo Run Review

I am a huge fan of technical innovation in the running space and I am genuinely very excited to see the amount of new products that are coming to market as of late. To that extent, I have spent the last several weeks with a new product from Lumotech called simply, The Run. Its goal is to provide an extra layer of data on top of your normal running metrics ...
