Jaybird Freedom 2 Wireless Sport Headphones With SpeedFit : Great value and easy to set up

Overall, and after a few weeks use, i can safely say i like these. I had to change to a larger pair of ear tips to keep them securely in position, but other than that everything worked a treat straight out of the box. They are easy to pair (bluetooth) and when you switch them on you get a clear voice confirmation that they are up and running, and also a battery percentage reminder. The battery does seem to last really well i find. The sonic quality is really nice and smooth. I listen to a lot of classical music, and and also voice based podcasts, and i find the overall tonality for both these is really very pleasant and makes for an enjoyable session. There are simple controls on the connecting wire for volume and on/off, and plenty more options in the app. I wear them for walking and cycling, and find they stay in place pretty well. The charging cradle is easy to fit and works well, and there is a nice carry case for all the bits included.

I usually don’t use in-ear headphones as i have tiny ears and most brands i have tried either hurt or fall out. I was therefore interested to see how the speedfit technology works. My first impression of the headphones was that the design was simple and stylish. I then tried to fit them to my ear shape and still had problems. They are more comfortable than some other brands, but i ultimately did not find them particularly well-fitting and they did fall out quite easily. You can certainly adjust them a lot more than most brands so i am sure they would work well for some people, but if you have weird ears like me don’t assume these will be the answer to your prayers. I did find setting up the headphones very easy and had no problem syncing them with my devices. I also thought the sound quality was very good.

The only thing i dont like about these headphones is the somehow very irritating voice hwich tells me they are connected etc. Other wise this is a beautifully packaged, small and lightweight headset with a good range of fitments to ensure a comfortable fit in the ear. Once youve found the right size, they are light and you forget they are there. I’ve tried these around the house, at work and while running , and theyve not slipped onece. The sound is excellent, and the extra charge pod a neat idea; you can use it for extra power (although it does add a bito f weight to the lead) or plug it in to a usb socket to recharge from t he mains or pc.

Great sound but i cannot fit any of the ear buds, the headphones stearing panel is too heavy and it pulls the bud out of my ears.

Gift for husband for the gym. He loves them and likes they can connect to two gadgets- his ipad for movie on train to work and if he gets a call they switch to his phone.

The sound is great and the isolation pretty good too. But unfortunately none of the fins seem to fit my ears properly which means that they pop off quite a lot. I tried my friends jaybird a with the separate fin to earbud and those seem to be doing a better job staying in my ears cause they are thinner. Also, the fins keep popping out of my buds or the buds pop off from the fins while i’m listening to music. I had to open a gutter to find one of them and have now managed to lose the one that fitted the best. The pop off every time i use them. So, sound and isolation good, fit not that great and the buds popping off the fins all the time?.

Good design, excellent quality and arrived in time.

Lost my charging clip so a bit annoying to have to pay 45 quid for a new one.

  • So close to perfect! The sound is great and the isolation pretty
  • My new daily driver. Great price, great build quality/ergonomics, good sound, battery life could be better.
  • Good sound , great product quality, great batery , great functionality.

These are a pretty good set of in ear bluetooth buds. They come with a variety of tips and hooks and i found no trouble getting a really good snug and comfortable fit. However, i find the charging process a bit cumbersome. Instead of plugging directly into the hones, you have a clip on battery which passes the charge to the battery in the phones. This gives you about 8 hours run time (4 on the clip on battery, plus 4 from the inbuilt battery, i get 6-8 hours from a budget set of bluetooth phones that take charge directly so i don’t understand the need). The clip is relatively heavy and so drags the connecting cord around slightly uncomfortably if it is being used. All in all 4 stars – they’re pretty good in most of the important aspects, but the fiddly charging process is a bind.

I took up jogging after over-indulging at christmas, and i’ve been using podcasts either to set my pace (couch to 5k) or to help me stay focused. I have several pairs of cheap wireless headphones now and none of them quite worked. I started out using a pair of over-ear headphones that really gripped my head but got a bit sweaty in warm weather. I then tried a set of skullcandy jib wireless, which were much lighter but tended to pop out of my ears over time. Jaybird’s weird-looking winged headphones turned out to be exactly what i needed; while they’re not perfectly comfortable, they stay put and get out of the way, and in all other respects do the job as they’re meant to. I actually wasn’t convinced by the fit of the earphones at first. It wasn’t until i went all the way up to the largest set of earpieces, which completely wrapped around the inside of my hear, that they stuck in place. Now there’s very little movement. Not none – there’s a bit of a shift when i mess with the remote or generally fidget with them – but jogging by itself doesn’t shake them loose like normal in-ear earphones. It helps that everything’s really light.

There are some jammings sometimes but overall these are great earbuds from all points of view.

Only problem is ear buds lost and can’t find anywhere to buy replacements so can’t use them and have tried everywhere.

I had really high hopes for these wireless headphones but sadly have been left a little disappointed hence only 3 stars. These are my first pair of wireless headphones so i do not have anything to compare them to. I usually use a pair of wired in-ear running headphones. The headphones come beautifully packaged and jaybird have excelled themselves in getting this right. You receive the headphones with size ‘2’ buds pre attached, the battery charger, 3 extra pairs of different sized buds, a short usb charger cable and a little fabric carry case to keep them all in. If like me you could’t find the usb cable in the box – look inside the fabric pouch as it was hiding in there. The instruction manual is a little bit rubbish but who reads the manual these days anyway?. So next you can download the jaybird app. With the app you have a little control over the settings.

I have been impressed with jaybird headphones. They get a lot of things right for the active user:- great sound quality. – water/sweat proof- a useful app that let’s you fine-tune your own preference for bass, etc. , and save it in a profile you can use on any device- non-tangling wire, with clips to adjust the length- small lozenge-shaped battery that lasts for several hours on a charge- nice setup interface (the headphones have an automated voice that tells you when the start/connect/how much charge left, etc. )- nice little pouch to keep the phones and charging dongle inhowever, there are some issues to note:- you are dependent on the charging dongle, which is bespoke to jaybird. It clips to the battery lozenge. If you lose that, you are done for. – the ear buds are combined with fins in a single piece of plastic. If you do not want fins, then you are stuck, or if you want fins but with a different type of bud (e. , memory foam)i also have a pair of jaybird x3’s, and for the latter reason, i much prefer those. There is nothing else wrong with the freedom 2’s, but for the small additional outlay, i would go for x3’s over these every time.

These earphones ooze quality. The metal effect is very cool, they are small and sophisticated, and the sound quality is top notch. You have to fiddle around to get the fit right, but honestly, did you expect anything different?. All in all, excellent sporty ear buds. Apparently, the cost of freedom is very high. These are very expensive, and for this price, you are competing with bose and beats. These are good, work well, stylish and practical. And if you can get them at the right price, i’d say go for it. But you have to decide what that price is.

I use these earphones for commuting and i find them excellent. The good points:- lightweight- batteries last long enough for whole day- very good fit for my ears – they don’t fall out easily and don’t hurt- the cable is unobtrusive and help not to lose them- sound is the big thing here, i had sennheiser momentum before and these are jaybird ones are equally impressive and cheaper- bluetooth has very good rangei am unsure if there are any really bad points for me. Were i running maybe, but for normal waling, commuting etc.

Jaybird Freedom 2 Wireless Sport Headphones With SpeedFit (Bluetooth, Range 30 f) – Gold/White

I’ve never heard of jaybird so i’m a novice to this brand. The initial presentation of the freedom2 headphones looks promising. Four pairs of ear buds, a nifty charging dock which also acts as a back-up battery and a pouch. The headphone cable has three button. The outer ones act as volume controls and navigating between tracks. The centre button acts the on/off, pairing, mute and to accept calls from a phone (as there is a built-in microphone). The headphones came with a charge but i used the docking station to charge them to full capacity. Luckily, the ear buds that were pre-fitted went straight into my ear holes. I selected a song and recoiled. They sounded dreadful – brash and lifeless.

I personally didn’t like the fit on these and sent back – not a -ve on the quality or design itself.

Well packaged if purchased for a gift, comes with all the run of mill different sized bits and pieces to make sure they fit and remain comfy and perfectly fitting in ur ears,when teamed with the iphone 7 plus amazing quality of sound. Pair easily, adjustable with clip which attaches them to collar of blouse, shirt or tee shirt at the back. They are charged via a cradle type attachment which also serves as an additional charger if they run out of charge. This is a nice touch although clunky. What spoils these for me is the fact that they are not magnetic ear pieces, this would have made them attach to each other when not in use around the neck. They feel good when in ear but i don’t like for exercising in prefer the ear cuff style they feel solid these don’t. At the price point i would advise caution whilst they tick the boxes for sound and style consider what your going to be wearing them for, it’s easy to catch these type of headphone and catapult them onto the floor while exercising however well affixed you might feel you have them to your tee shirt. Worth checking out market to see what’s available as there are design omissions which may make these less suitable than u hoped.

I’ve been using these headphones for a couple of weeks on my daily commute to work. As is the sound setting is not great, but if you download the free jaybird app (i have an iphone 6s plus) you can easily customise the sound and use loads of pre-set options. They fit securely in the ear and are not uncomfortable – unlike other in-ear headphones i have tried. They are great at blocking outside sounds and you don’t have to have the volume up too loud to enjoy music. They are a quality item and i feel they will last. The inline control is easy to use and does everything it needs to. I am very pleased with the headphones and really enjoy using them.

Uncomfortable after short use. Volume control too heavy for sports activity which results in the headphones falling out. Ok for office use or casual use.

Everything very good except some of the light bulbs got broken in transit.

It’s hard to fault these too much – they’re the first pair of bluetooth earbuds that i’ve had that haven’t tended to cut out near escalators in busy stations or when the phone is in a pocket on the opposite side of my body to the antenna. The sound quality is also really good when you use the accompanying app. Without the app they don’t sound good at all – i was astonished at the difference in sound. I like the clever means for adjusting the length of the wire between the earbuds, too, so you can easily avoid trailing cables. It loses a star firstly because they’re not the most comfortable earbuds i’ve tried – better than most i’ve tried, but definitely not the best, and secondly because of the battery life. While you can use the charger for an extra 4 hours you don’t particularly want that dangling off and it doesn’t feel secure enough on its own anyway (so you’re worried you’ll lose it and have no way of charging these because of the lack of standard connectors on the actual earbuds). Without that you have just 4 hours – enough for a few calls, but shorter than my weekly inter-city commute, making this definitely a problem for me. I’d have rather had a slightly larger integrated piece with a standard charger and 8 hours battery life. Sound-wise, things are pretty clear once you’ve found a profile you like and the equaliser profiles let you pick how bassy you want it to be so it can fit your tastes – that’s definitely a cool feature. However, i’ll stick with my crossfades as they still sound better.

Like everything about these. Paired with remarkable ease and have continued to do so every time i tried them. Are easy to control from the control gizmo. Fit well in my ears, although adjusting them from normal fit to over ear was a bit of a fiddle. The enthusiastic american voice that greats you every time you turn them on can be a bit annoying, but it’s better to be informed than not and most importantly the sound is excellent. The phone app gives you the ability to adjust the graphic equalizer to your tastes for extra bass, extra treble or middle for whatever rocks your boat. I picked a classical setting that someone else had done and it works fine for me. They are designed for runners, one of which i am not, but on the occasions i have used them they have stayed in place. The price is a bit frightening, but if having music on your exercise is important to you, these are quality items and merit the premium.

It probably pays to know that i am a chartered engineer and my wife was an audiologist in a previous life. I was drawn to these headphones as they have been highly recommended by the wired gadget lab for both function and sound quality – the former is more important to me than the latter when i am in the gym as i can’t cope with them falling out mid-routine. I must admit that if i did not have the wired recommendation to go on, the fact that the majority of the positive reviews were from vine customers who had received a free set would have put me off but i decided to give them a go as i am looking to upgrade my iphone 6 to an iphone 8 and so will have to come to terms with bluetooth headphones before too long. My first attempt to get them working was a disaster. I have very small ear canals and so always use the smallest rubber tip when i buy new earbuds. Consequently i immediately selected the smallest earpiece in these headphones. I could get them to stay in, sort of, but there was a lot of sound leakage and just running on the spot in the kitchen made them drop out. I decided to give them another try and this time listen to my wife (i know, i know) and asked her to help me sort them out. Although my ear canals are small my ear is somewhat bigger and so i ended up using number 3 (4 being the largest).

These earphones produce a surprisingly good sound. That is once you get them correctly positioned in your ears, which isn’t easy, with the right size buds (they supply four sizes). Connection was straight forward once i had worked out that you press the middle button on the headset to turn on and to connect. There is a book of instructions that looks substantial but only a few pages in english. Com does not cover the freedom 2. The buds for freedom are memory foam whereas the ones supplied with my freedom 2 are basic buds. 5 star sound but 3 star in ear comfort so 4 stars.

Although you can pay more, these sell at a premium price – so i was expecting to be impressed. There is no doubt that these are good earbuds which provide a very light and comfortable fit that make them ideal for exercise. The idea of a separate battery pack for the extra 4 hours use is good, but the design does not allow for the direct charging of the headphones. I can almost guarantee that at some stage i will mislay the battery pack which will render the phones useless. I could keep them as one i guess but they are so much nicer without the pack attached. Spares are available – but will cost you more than a basic set of headphones. My chief gripe however is that these are lacking in bass. The app helps a little, but they are very small drivers and therefore you really need a perfect fit in your ear canal to get the best out of these. I simply haven’t been able to get that fit. It is frustrating because when i hold the earbuds in my ears, the bass response is pretty good.

These are the first wireless headphones i have tried, and i would say in general they are good quality, but they are missing a couple of things to make them perfect. Firstly, the connectivity is easy to set up ,the app is very useful to balance the eq and the charging is very quick. The female voice is a little urgent “charge me”. Which can surprise you mid exercise. The charge itself will probably last three hours without issue – i never tend to use them for that long, but you get the charger block which will give you at least the same again. The main gripe is the buds which, as mentioned elsewhere, are prone to escape, as one did on a dog walk one day. So now i only have one ear bud as i go, which is probably a lot safer anyway. In summary they are very easy to set up, very easy to use, but a little to easy to pull apart.

Overheated in no time then went pop.

Having the option of over/under ear positioning, and different size buds, make them so versatile. Couples with easy connectivity, a competitive price and great quality – what’s not to like.

I’ve used jaybird freedom headphones for a while, and always found them to be that rare breed — a pair of phones which actually fit into my ear without falling out, even when exercising. This is achieved by the material they’re made of, and the large number of combinations of earbuds and wearing positions that are possible. The freedom two earphones are similarly brilliant; the one plus point over the older model is that the sound quality, which was really good before, is now downright excellent — it’s clear, well-defined, and good at both top and bottom end. I’ve used these for about a week now, and been really impressed — they fit, they’re comfortable, and they sound brilliant.

Personally have never tried a pair that both sound and feel as great in the ear as the freedom 2’s. Tip design is also an improvement over the original freedoms.

Firstly, these come in a very smart box. The headphones are light weight and come with 4 different sized earpieces. The soft rubber extension on the earpiece helps to lock the earpiece in place, and it does this very well. A great feature, i have not seen on other similar earbuds, is the ability to adjust the overall length of the cable between the earpieces so that you can snug it up and have no slack. The buttons on the control tab allow for switching them on, pairing the bluetooth, adjusting the volume and switching tracks. Pairing was simple and straightforward on my android phone. The lugs on the earpieces hold the earbuds firmly in place and so you can walk/run or exercise without having to keep pushing them back into your ears. So once paired my initial impression of the sound quality was average. But, then i downloaded the app and then had a play with the different graphic equaliser settings and wow the sound quality was much improved. The bass is full and the high end is crisp.

Really good runner’s earphones. The odd looking ear supports are the magic here; with quite a lot of trial and error, you’ll eventually find a combination of tips that fit snugly but comfortably into your particular ears. Once found, they stay put really well even when running on hard pavements. As sports headphones they#re so good that you do run the risk of being at times woo deeply inside your music cocoon, so do please remember to remain situationally aware at road junctions etc. As for sound quality; these phones really do benefit from a period of burn in; set them going on their own for a couple of days and when you come back you’ll find the treble has smoothed off a little and that tones are rich and pacy. I do wonder if they are tuned to be pacy deliberately, to help with the motivation?. Whatever, it’s a great sound and the included equaliser app, if you like that sort of thing, also proves opportunities for you to further personalise the sound signature.
