Jaybird Sportsband Stereo Bluetooth Headphones

Audio Gadget ReviewsKermit Woodall

The Jaybird Sportsband stereo bluetooth headphones are the perfect accessory for anyone using their iPhone, iPod or other stereo bluetooth supported music player. Unlike most of the competition these include a handsfree microphone (don’t use these in your car though!) so if you get a call while working out, you don’t have to take off the headphones.

The Sportsband are also some of the best-looking stereo bluetooth headphones out there. Thin, attractively styled, these just look good.

The sound is good as well. They hold a strong signal connection to your player and produce sound that to my ears is every bit as good as my wired headphones.

In addition to crystal clear Stereo sound the Sportband includes an integrated microphone with Clear Voice Capture technology for phone calls ensuring your voice comes through crisp and clear. Music from your device pauses while you take a call, resumes when you’re done. The Sportsband also works with VoIP applications like Skype.

They come with a generous warranty and have a street price under $80. Recommended!
