I purchased mine at bestbuy(to get a geeksquad warranty) about a few weeks ago and I'm very happy with it. Jaybirds has a lifetime sweatproof warranty. Here is my 2 cents:
Sound quality is great - As good as my $100 bose soundtrue earbuds(for a regular joe, it is more than enough). I use to watch movies on my mac and netflix on my roku and it sounds great.
Noise cancelling is passive(enough to zone in but safe enough to hear surroundings while running).
Battery life is as advertised - Ran for a week running 5-7 miles daily, watching movies without charging. Gets approximately 8 hours.
Connectivity - No issues except for old bluetooth devices. Disconnected once but it was my old 2009 mac(so I bought a bluetooth dongle). Switching from one device to another is very easy. It can only get connected to one device.
Fit - The smallest bluetooth earbuds money can buy in the market(I tried a lot ie backbeats go2, jabra sport, etc and they all look like I have a jawbreaker in my ear). The fit is great but when I ran it started to fall off with the sweat and all. The solution: Over the ear fitting. It has been excellent for me during running. I use the under the ear for leisure activities/plane trips because I can secure it around my neck when I temporarily remove them. Just google jaybirds on how to clip it properly(clips included in the purchase), it takes 30 seconds.
Things I hate - the case. OMG. Very poorly designed. It is huge and a pain to open/close. The comply eartips has irritated my ears, so I use the silicone(included too).
I disagree with other reviewers about not sounding loud enough, I never had a problem with it using spotify, pandora, itunes and even just watching from my mac. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PROPER FIT. Ignore the reviewers that says the sound is tiny, they are not fitting it correctly or they didn't clean their ears.
TLDR: Just buy it if you're looking for a bluetooth earbud with good sound quality and comfortable fit. I spent too much time purchasing and returning the cheaper ones. Wear it over the ear when running. If the fit is not great, just return it but give it a shot :)
UPDATE(10/24/2015): After 2 months of use, the X2 has been amazing. No lost connections(not even once!), plus the new iOS displays the battery life now. I have been training for a half marathon and using it for traveling, it has not failed me. Devices used: macbook pro late 2011, ipad air 2, tomtom spark cardio + music, iphone 6s.
UPDATE(3/7/2016): The X2 has been solid. I have now been using it on a daily basis - I just discovered audiobooks lately and wear the X2 to listen to them on my way to work. Still no spotty bluetooth connections despite heavy use. I am using it for everything, I think I already got my money's worth. Battery life has not worsened after a few months.
I'm a runner and I have forever been looking for the best headphones to run with. Over the years, i've probably purchased 30 different types from high end Sure 535s at $550 all the way down to $5 specials. For the most part the Bluebuds have been great at dealing with sweat and moisture.
Here's a quick recap and comparison of the old and new ones. A bunch of reviewers have come out with new thoughts on them so I'll leave the long form to them.
The biggest pro i can tell you right out of the gate is that Jaybird nailed the fit this time. The original Bluebuds were decent but i couldn't ever get the best combination that caused the earphones to stay in effectively when I ran. Call it a fat guy with sweaty ears but they just wouldn't stay. These new X2's already fit better. You can feel them "lock in" with a great firmness that says that they are not going anywhere. The new ones come with comply tips (a MUST have if you want good signals and clean bass). The old ones did not. They also changed the design of the secure fit ear pieces and they just feel better this time around. On the last pair, I ended up giving up on the enclosed ear pieces and getting the decibulz so that they would mold to my ear and stay in.
They also have the same clips that keep the wire secure around your neck. That is a key feature as other headphones shake, rattle and roll and you can hear it in the movement. Plus if they are not secure, they flop and around and eventually pull out of your ears.
As to colors, they are cool. I'm a traditional guy so I went with the Black. I like them better than the old Bluebuds which were also black (what can I say? It goes with everything... :).
The new case is bigger. I'm not sure that is a great thing as portability is a big thing for me. To be honest, this not a big deal for me as I likely will carry them in a small running case anyway.
So why are they a 4 star vs. 5 star? Two reasons: first is that they never quite got loud enough for me on the first go around. I was hoping that that these would get louder (sometimes you just need that extra juice to get you pumped up to get over that hill in a workout). These are solid but they don't get quite loud enough for me. The second reason is that the sound stage while clean is a bit tinny for my taste. I am by NO means a bass head but that doesn't mean I want a less than pristine and full sound stage when I'm listening. I'm listening to them tied to an iPhone 6 running Spotify with the streaming quality cranked up to excellent so it should be very full 320 bit sound. In that mode, these sound 'very good'. It's 4 star because I was hoping they would be excellent. At that point, they would be game over. They just didn't blow me away as much as I would have hoped they might. This too i had hoped that they would enhance in the X2 and I was a little disappointed to hear that they sounded pretty similar to the Bluebuds X.
So overall verdict? If you want a set of bluetooth headphones to work out with, these are it. Hands down. As long as you can deal with them not being quite loud enough or sounding like a $300 pair of earphones (and in fairness they are bluetooth so it's hard to get sreiously high fidelity out of that technology) than they are great buy.
