Jaybird Announces ultracompact BlueBuds with apt-X
The latest release from Jaybird is the BlueBuds Bluetooth Headphones, which utilize apt-X audio coding technology for cleaner, clearer, bassier highs.
With smartphones taking the place of standalone MP3 players more and more, it’s no wonder we have a proliferation of stereo Bluetooth headsets on the market. No stranger to this space is JayBird, which has been making uncharacteristically comfy sets for the past several years.
Despite their small size, the BlueBuds manage to integrate a full array of tactile controls into the right earpiece. There’s a volume knob and buttons for controlling music playback and call functions. The headset is stylish, with rounded rectangular earpieces and muted silver and gray accents. They are also extremelu comfortable, based on the adjustable, contoured ear loops and angled earbud arms. The earpieces are connected via a flexible band that is designed to be worn at the base of the neck.
