Battery Life

Ear tips are made up of foam which is why Jaybird X3. Besides that, it claims to run (as in operate) for good eight to nine hours. However, for that, you have to charge the earplugs fully and completely. If we do a comparison, you will find out that the exact number of hours are given by Jaybird X2. Technically speaking, eight hours of functioning time is a bit too less, considering its small size.

Design and Style

If we compare Jaybird X2 and Jaybird X3, there are certain improvements in the latter. Design, as well as style, is a lot better. So much so that we can easily say that Jaybird X3 is a total makeover of the previous model or version. Both have plastic as the main source of manufacturing. However, the X3 is a lot enhanced in quality. Appearance is versatile. Color combinations are good to look at. Earbuds are sleek and slimmer in comparison to X2. Nevertheless, both have a bit sturdy but bulky structure. X3 has the addition of ear tips as well as wings. Good thing is that the Jaybird X3 is good for continuous hours of use.

Quality of Sound

Honestly speaking, the sound quality of Jaybird X3 is not very good. As per rating by the experts, it got 6th rank out of 10 products. Although earbuds have not made the perfect stature, they are still better than the previous model. They are good enough for regular and continuous eight hours of use. However, the user finds thinness in sound. it is due to the fact that the bass is of the weakest nature.

Clarity of sound is average because it doesn’t possess crispness as other earbuds do. You better don’t try making phone calls with these earbuds. Reason being, you will only find it hard to listen to the person on the other end. It at times is clear and other times you have to be very careful while listening. Professionals and experts in the group of ours checked it repeatedly to find better findings, but we failed massively.

Portability

Jaybird X3 is best in regard to portability. It stands on 2nd rank out of 10 in compactness and transportability factor. The cable is flexible, earbuds are small and light, which allows quick and easy packing or wrapping in a box.

Conclusion – Last Verdict

According to the users, Jaybird X3 is good earbuds to use. Water resistance lacks to the worst side and that is indeed a drawback of Jaybird X3. There is good news for those who have bought X3 though. They can update Jaybird X3 into next version Jaybird X4. All in all, Jaybird X3 is a good option for those who hit the gym regularly or go out for running on daily basis.
