Like the Freedom model, the Jaybird Sportsband is targeted towards the sporty ones amongst us, and with a slightly retro stylish look these could well become a popular sight along the roads and at the gym.
Although the Jaybird Sportsband bluetooth headphones are overhead and therefore more bulky than some of its in-ear competitors, the sound is supposed to be superior to most of them with a more bass filed sound which according to many reviewers are amongst the best in the class for bluetooth headphones.
Jaybird guarantees that the sportsband, even with its use of foam pads, is sweat and rain resistant so it can be used in all weather conditions. The bands are adjustable so will fit most head sizes, and from reports the earpieces are also comfortable.
There is a microphone on the right earpiece so you will be able to make and answer calls with the Jaybird Sportsband as well. Some reports that the controls situated on one of the earpieces takes a bit getting used to.
Battery life on the Jaybird Sportsband is 8 hours music play, 11 hours talk time, and 250 hours stand by time.
The Jaybird 200 stereo bluetooth headset is available from amongst other the following UK retailers:
