We have been waiting for these for a while now and finally it looks like Jaybird are ready to release the JF3 Freedom bluetooth buds to go running on their own on a street near you.
Personally, i think wires and exercise don’t match as i always find that the wire is either pulling on the earbuds or that they are getting tangled somewhere while running, so i have been waiting for some really good wireless headphones/earbuds for a while. Although there have been some decent alternatives in the market for a while, none of them have quite made my cut in terms of either sound or size and comfort. Having had a first look at the JF3 Freedom bluetooth buds i’m thinking this might be the closest match so far.
Jaybird are definitely positioning the JF3 Freedom as the wireless earbuds for the sporty person with words as ‘shakeproof’ and ‘sweatproof’ ringing nicely in the ears of someone that does a lot of both.The JF3 looks much smaller than earlier models i have seen, and the new proprietary ear cushions that are there to provide the secure comfort looks like the real deal.
Jaybird says that they have tuned the JF3 Freedom with an emphasis on sub-bass, reducing potential listener fatigue by reducing ranges of mids and trebles. You also find all the controls that you need on the earpiece itself, including mic for taking calls, and play/pause/skip forward and backwards.
The JF3 Freedom uses bluetooth 2.1 +EDR technology and the advised play time between charges is 6 hours (play & talk), with 250 hours standby and 2 hours charging time. And they are so sure about the sweatproof ability of these earbuds that they are giving you a lifetime warranty against sweat.
The Jaybird JF3 Freedom bluetooth buds is available in the UK from amongst other the following retailers:
You can see more bluetooth headphones/earbuds here.
I am really building my hopes up with the Jaybird JF3 Freedom bluetooth buds, so lets hope i’m not disappointed when i get to try them. Promise i will post video review once had a chance to give them a good challenge at the gym. In the meantime you can check out the official video below.
