Bought these headphone for when I work out at the gym. Mostly weight lifting and aome light cardio. I was tired of buying headphones with cords that would get caught or pull out of my ears when changing postions during lifting. Bought these even though I was apprehensive about the signal strength based on the reviews. I could not be happier with this purchase. I've never had a problem with a weak signal from my iPhone to the headphones (I always keep my phone in my shorts pocket, doesn't matter which pocket for me). Signal remains perfect when outside, too. The buds fit perfectly in my ears and never slip out - even if really sweaty or during a lot of jumping/moving around. One bud did make my left ear sore for the first time I wore it (over an hour), but after I "broke them in" I never had a problem again. I would recommended these to any gym-goer who is sick of having their workouts interrupted by tangled cords. Sound quality it great overall for Bluetooth, as well.

The battery doesn't last long enough, I can get about 2-3 hours use.
Volume isn't enough, but sufficient.
So average is about all I can say.

I received this as a gift, and it is my first Bluetooth device.

I wanted no more tangles in wires, and because I mostly carry it around my neck, tangle free, and without accidentally yanking the wire, it may last longer than other ear-buds. I jog with them, walk with them and wear them when sitting at the computer.

PROS
- Battery life is great.
- They don't fall out when exercising, it fits really well.
- Blocks sound pretty well. When listening, I can pretty easily block out other people talking.
- Comfortable.
- People can hear me well, I talk loud on the phone though because I am usually outside or in a car, so I cannot yet be sure how well it would work if I needed to whisper.

CONS
- When battery is low, it beeps in your ear every 20 seconds, I wish there was a way around this, because it makes them unusable when you would rather just squeeze the last bit of juice out of it without being harassed.
- When I turn my head while wearing these, and wearing a scarf or coat, sometimes it feels like the cord rubber is getting stuck on the clothing and might yank one year bud out.
- When jogging with a hat over them, the sound can stutter when the hand holding my mobile device swings behind my body. Which is weird, because I can walk 15 feet away from the mobile device before getting any stutter.

BOTTOM LINE
This is a fantastic product. Without the wire tangles, and keeping it around my neck, it is likely to have a longer life than traditional wired headset. Sound stutters only in certain situations when I would expect (thick hat over my ears), and they don't fall out. I can't really ask for much more than that!

The Jaybird Freedom Sprint Bluetooth Headphones work much better than anticipated and should be considered for any typical gym user.

I admit that I had middling expectations for the Freedom Sprints. I've owned countless Bluetooth headsets (monaural) and was an early adopter for Bluetooth headphones a couple years ago with a chunky first gen stereo model paired to an Insignia AD2P enabled mp3 player. In those cases, the best that could be said about Bluetooth sound is that it (usually) worked, but didn't sound all that great. Enter the pleasant sounds of the Freedom Sprints. While I can't pass out an extra star for it, I do have to say that the packaging for the Freedom Sprints is outstanding. Once you open the cool box, you'll find a useful hard shell case with a magnetic snap that will safely store your headphones in a gym bag. Beyond that, my initial impression of the Freedom Sprints is that for Bluetooth headphones, they are small, not chunky, and sound very good.

The right earbud has an attached rubber piece that covers a micro USB port. I plugged that into my cell phone's charger and charged up the Sprints for about 2 hours. From there I was able to pair my Freedom Sprints to a Motorola Actv device without a hitch and was listening to my playlists in no time. The sound was high quality and I was rather impressed, but don't get me wrong here, everything is relative. Mid-to-expensive range wired units like my Klipsch earbuds will always sound better than anything-Bluetooth right now. Still, the Freedom Sprints more than hold their own for listening to podcasts and tunes while running on a loud treadmill. Just as importantly, the earbuds stay in your ears while running on said treadmill. There are 3 options for securing the Sprints in your ears. First, you can just use one of the included sizes of silicone earbuds and put them in your ears as you would any buds. This works for me if I'm sitting down and not moving, but as soon as I begin to walk the Freedom Sprints (or any buds for that matter) fall out. The second solution is to use the included over-the-ear-hooks. Typically, this the method that I used with success for all of my previous gym earbuds brands, and it works for the Freedom Sprints too. The final solution is to use the unique Secure Fit ear cushions. I was skeptical about these at first, but after playing with them, they are now my preferred method of inserting my ear buds. The crescent-shaped ear cushions are soft pieces of silicone that you wedge into the curved part of your ear above your ear canal. They surprisingly work very well and I don't notice that they are there until about 1.5 hours of use. Longer listening sessions produced a little discomfort, but nothing out of the norm or unbearable. The key for me was to use what I believed to be an ear cushion one size too big in order to get the best fit. Other than that, there's not too much to say. The volume buttons are small, but easily reachable on the back right bud. Holding the volume buttons down skip or repeat tracks and the power button can be used for pause/play. I will say that you do have to hold down the power button an unusually long time to turn the buds on/off/pair. You have to get used to that long press otherwise you'll always think the Sprints are broken or the battery is dead. I don't know exactly how long the battery charge lasts. However, my routine was to goto the gym for two, ~1.5 hour sessions and then charge the headphones up again. In this scenario, the battery never died on me. If you stay around 3-3.5 hours of usage, the battery will not be a concern. If you need 5 continuous hours of power, I think you'll have to look for some other Bluetooth models.

Overall, I really like the Freedom Sprints and plan to use them for quite some time. Any audiophile relaxing in his or her recliner at home will still want to listen to their music through some quality, wired headphones. But for the active user who spends less than 3.5 consecutive hours running outside or at the gym, the Freedom Sprints have to receive top-notch consideration.

Great sound and fit, when in properly you really cannot hear much external sounds. Very lightweight and comfortable. Only downside is limited range.

Size Name: One SizeColor Name: BlackVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Seems Like I am always on the search for the perfect headset for my listening situation. I listen to audio books to and from work eveyday. So I need a headset that fits my ears and moves freely with my head as I am driving. This headset really doesn't fit that criteria. The earbuds were constantly popping out of my ears no matter which cushions I used. Also they would popout whenever I would turn my head. Once I found the right spot that they would stay in I wouldn't dare move my head or they would pop out. I felt like I would have to charge them everyday and there was no warning except a couple of beeps and then the headset going dead that you were low on battery. The distance that the headset and my phone could be away from each other was very limited. Just walk a few steps away and the phone would go completely off. So then I would have to go through the whole prossess of find the right spot for listening.

Good fit, I sometimes have to contend with bluetooth cutting out in certain positions like bending over to pick something up, but I think that is just the nature of bluetooth. I like the way the unit works easy to use. I would buy another.

I am lowering my review. The ear bud come off too easily and get lost now I have an unusable product. The were nice with buds, useless without.

These buds sound great but I am finding what I feared to be true. I have always struggled with ear buds being too large for me. I can wear these and they are fine at first. But after a few minutes the area of my ears where the buds are inserted begin aching. I am going to give them a little bit to try to get used to them. If not, I will have to return them as they are way too expensive to hurt my ears this badly. I would consider myself slightly below average height-wise for a lady at about 5 feet 5 inches, so it is not like I have a super dainty frame or anything. So ladies, give them a try but I think these may have been built with men in mind.

I'm a track and field guy who absolutely loves the JayBird Freedoms 4. When working out I'm running full speed, flying over hurdles, jumping into the long jump pit...and these headphones perform perfectly, never coming loose!

The in-ear snug design and the 4.5+ hour battery (I typically get more than 5 hours) were the big wins for me.

I did a full write up on my buddies blog: [...]
