It’s what Mr. S lives for. From what he wears to what he watches on TV, it’s all about the links. His collection of collared shirts are color coordinated in the closet. The remote knows each match on TV by heart, and each morning he heads out to “bang a bucket.” If he’s not home, he’s probably on the back nine. His collection of clubs and accessories has grown over the years but there was one thing that was missing. MUSIC
You can’t play music on the golf course
But, it tends to relax and put Mr. S in the zone (or as Bill Murray says “Be the ball.”). He’s thought about being able to listen to his favorite tunes while out on the course, but since you can’t play music and wires would get in the way, it just wasn’t practical.
Until he found JayBird RUN
With no wires to tangle or get caught up in the club, these bluetooth compatible in-ear buds can pair with multple devices and allow him to share his playlist with the other duffers on the course, enjoying music with every swing. Because they are sweatproof and dirtproof, he doesn’t have to worry about the sun beating down on him and having his music stop because something got wet.
The Jaybird RUN wireless earbuds also have an in-line microphone, so if I want him to pick some lunch for me at the 19th hole before coming home, he has no excuse.
Best fit ever
Mr. S is BIG (6’2″) and I am small (5’1″). My ears are tiny compaired to his and I’ve never found a pair of earbuds that comfortably stay in place, so I gave these a try. The design is such that the earbuds not only fit comfortably but actually stay in place securely. Hmmm…..yoga to music? I love it!
Jaybird RUN earbuds come housed in a charging case that looks like a little pod that is easily charged via usb. They pair via Bluetooth 4.1 interface and you can get up to 33 feet away before they start to crackle. Each charge provides up to 4 hours of audio streaming and 8 hours being out of the case before you have to charge them. BTW, they can easily be charged in the car as well.
I’m always surprised when Bluetooth connected devices have such a rich clear sound and these earbuds have 6mm drivers, with deliver a clear powerful sound. The only issue we encountered was when our Bluetooth wasn’t stable (happens here every now and again).
