Both of Jaybird’s newest sub-$100 headphones, the Tarah and the X4, are wonderful, sturdy, long-lived exercise buds with unbelievable sound high quality. But in case you do not want the X4’s particular, squishy Comply foam ear suggestions, the Tarah has every thing you want at a candy worth level—and so they’re at the moment fairly reasonably priced. My coworker Adrienne So appreciated the gentle earpieces (with wings!) that match securely out of the field and stayed put whereas she went path operating, mountaineering, and weight lifting. They weigh lower than a half-ounce. Most splendidly of all, you possibly can tinker with EQ presets within the Jaybird app or create your personal customized sound. I put on them completely in every single place, from the bus to the seashore, and benefit from the spectacular eight hours of battery life to the fullest.
