Jaybird drew some criticism from some users because, despite some improvements, it didn’t seem like much of an upgrade over its predecessor. Well, now the company finally has a headphone with a totally new design: The Jaybird Freedom.
Some of Jaybird’s earlier models were also named Freedom, but this new 2016 model doesn’t look anything like them and has a couple of distinguishing design features. For starters, the buds have a proprietary “tapered stepdown” design, which means they’ve been trimmed down and now fit better in your ears. You are also able to wear a helmet over them without a problem. With the amount of companies jumping into production you can get a pretty decent earbud at affordable rate. Here is a list of Best Earbuds Under $100 where you can find some good ones.
Luckily, the headphones, which are available in five color options, come with a nice little carrying pouch, where you can store the battery clip and any extra tips and ear fins that come with the headphones. A set of cord shorteners is also include, but they aren’t the most elegant solution. Jaybird needs to find a way to integrate a cord adjustment design element into the product, not have you attach something to it.
