The world has always been busy. The world today, if you can believe it, is even busier. As such it is important to have a headset that can keep up. Today, we review the Jaybird Freedom Headphones. As always, Tech Made Easy is dedicated to providing you (our dear readers) with recommendations and reviews that you can trust.
When we want to hunker down and focus on what we are doing, we like to listen to music. This is something that we are sure that you can relate with. It is the year 2017 and the world is obsessed with getting healthy (which is honestly a really good thing). One of the more popular ways in which people choose to get healthy is through running.
When you’re running solo, one of the best things to do is to tune out the world and just listen to your playlist. However, a common issue is that it is hard to find reliable headphones that suit the movement of a runner. Thankfully, Jaybird Freedom is here to save the day.
Sleek is the name of the game and Freedom is rocking it! The very first thing that we noticed is that the curvature is quite different from other “running headsets” out in the market. It hugs and curves along the lower lobe of your ear which makes it quite ideal for those who aren’t just runners. They are quite perfect for those who have to wear safety gear.
The sound that the Freedom produces is quite clear and vibrant. It’s able to continue delivering stellar beats even when you should be hearing the air whooshing into your ears. If you are not aware, the Freedom can either be wired with cables or has a Bluetooth option.
We used to not be big fans of Bluetooth headsets as they tend to have extremely miniscule battery life. However, we are pleased to report that we had to swallow our initial misgivings about Bluetooth headsets. While the box says that it can support usage of up to four consistent hours, we pushed our sample to the limit and it did not need charging until well into the sixth hour of continuous use!
So while six hours may not be enough for those who want to use their headphones for a full-day’s utilization, it is perfect for those who want to use it for a set workout.
For such a high performance accessor, surely you do not expect it to come at a super low price. After all, you get what you pay for (most of the time). While the Jaybird Freedom Headphones will set you back a good £150, it is tremendously worth it.
Verdict: BUY. NOW!
The Jaybird Freedom Headset is a great value for money accessory that will see a lot of use. It has the potential to be filed under “How have I lived before this” kind of accessory. We’re all stoked to see what else this company has in store for the future but for right now, we’re still giddy over our the Freedom.
