Jaybird, makers of the X-series of wireless bluetooth earbuds has today announced the Jaybird X4 Wireless Sport Headphones for runners and all around athletes.
The earbuds will be available to purchase globally for USD $129.99 in September in three colours: Black Metallic/Flash, Alpha Metallic/Jade and Storm Metallic/Glacier. The announcement is US-focused, with the Storm Metallic listed as a Best Buy exclusive so it remains to be seen if this colour will be available everywhere.
Jaybird has improved on the X3 earbuds making the X4 Wireless Sport waterproof with an IPX7 rating meaning they’re able to take a hard workout in the gym and immersion in up to 1m of water for up to 30 minutes.
They’ve also improved battery life too with up to eight hours on a single charge, and if you forget to charge before your workout then ten minutes of charging will give you one hour of play.
Jaybird has also improved the design with a more comfortable fit, with new silicon fins and ultra-soft silicon tips in several different sizes to fit almost everyone. Jaybird also include their exclusive Comply Ultra foam tips.
The Jaybird X4 also include an omnidirectional mic built-in to the lightweight controller allowing for simplified controls.
