I love how technology keeps improving these days. I remember growing up where you literally had to carry cassette or CD players around with you to listen to music while being active.
These days you just need a phone. However, headphones have been a bit slower to become more convenient.
It's nice that you no longer have to have your headphones connected to your phone. But a lot of headphones that are marketed as wireless aren't technically because they have attached battery packs or each headphone is connected to the other.
Don't get me wrong. It's certainly an improvement of how things used to be. I was definitely excited to try out the truly wireless Jaybird RUN Wireless Headphones, though.

What We Loved About Jaybird RUN Wireless Headphones

What We Felt Could Be Improved About Jaybird RUN Wireless Headphones
- It is a bit annoying that you can easily turn off each earbud by accidentally touching the side. The right earbud is the "master" of the 2, so if you turn off the left one, you'll then also have to turn off the right and then back on to get the left one working again
- While we had no issues with connectivity I do feel like I should mention that a number of people have mentioned having connectivity issues in their reviews - just something to be aware of
Jaybird RUN Wireless Headphones Review
I've been really proud of Mr. Savvy the past couple months as he's really been striving to get back into exercising and be more active. He loves listening to music while working out but he hates how cumbersome traditional earbuds are.
So, while I've tried the Jaybird RUN wireless headphones a couple times he's used them the most. So far, he's definitely been loving them with both his Note 8 and Gear S3 smartwatch.
He says that since he's been using the Jaybird headphones it's been SO much nicer and convenient.
He's always found earbuds to be difficult to fit properly so he was very surprised that the Jaybird wireless headphones fit both snuggly while being comfortable. He's had no issues with them wanting to fall out.
I know that when I tried the Jaybird Bluetooth headphones I was super impressed with the sound quality, especially the bass. Mr. Savvy also really likes the sound quality and says they also work well for phone calls.
In reading some other's experiences with these headphones I noted that some people had issues with connectivity dropping. However, we haven't had any connectivity issues at all.
In fact, the only negative Mr. Savvy has found thus far is how easy it is to accidentally turn off one of the headphones and how you have to then turn them both off and back on to work again.
He does also really like the handy charging case and the fact the wireless earbuds charge so quickly especially since he's not always the best at remembering to charge things beforehand.
Overall, he definitely plans to keep using the earbuds while working out and even just to listen to music.
Are Jaybird RUN Wireless Headphones Recommended?
With our experience so far, we both definitely say yes. They are a little pricier than I'd normally want to spend on something like this but so far they seem worth it. I'll definitely update if we find any reasons to change our minds.
