    I love my jaybird bluebuds x. I had the freedom before and liked them too though compared to the new bluebuds x, they're huge! the best part is that they're wireless!!! no problems pairing with my iPhone 5 in the gym or running. love love love them!

    they are sport but you would have no problem listening to them on an everyday basis.

    Within your budget:
    JVC HA-FX101
    JVC HA-FX1X

    If you're willing to pay a few more bucks, these are highly recommended:
    Vsonic GR02 Bass Edition

    I've never bought a pair of expensive headphones so I don't have that to compare them to, but they're far better quality than the Apple earbuds. You can actually hear the bass on them.

    I hadn't realized Jaybird had a new in-ear on the market. Those look NICE. I used my freedoms on a daily. Only drawbacks are call quality, and it affected the other person, not me. I had to stop using them when I got my i5. the bluetooth sync button got destroyed at some-point, and they are locked to my sons i4.

    Anybody got hands-on with the bluebuds X?

    Another poster above you has and the reviews web wide seem pretty positive.

    Yea, I've read/watched all the reviews. I just like to crowd source my info as much as possible. seems a bit more believable. Thanks though man.

    Also, because I'm an idiot, my freedoms are not broken, and I just don't know how to sync them.

    Still looking at those Bluebuds.....

    ----------

    BlueBud X vs. Freedom

    Is there a big performance difference? I own the freedoms, and don't really have a reason to upgrade, but I'm thinking about it anyway. :eek:

    Is it purely size? or is there a noticeable audio boost as well? are the Bluebuds more comfortable/snug?
