If you’re not fussed about fitness tracking but want to lose the wires along with those extra pounds you’ve put on, Jaybird’s first pair of true wireless buds could be your perfect training buddies.
Reasonably priced considering they don’t have any fancy talents beyond playing music and taking calls, they’re comfortable and sweatproof, although a four-hour battery life isn’t especially impressive, so remember to keep the charging case nearby - you’ll get an extra eight hours of playback out of that.
Performance is a bit on the bassy side but that can be encouraging when you’re down to the last couple of miles. They won’t do complex classical numbers much justice, but there’s a crisp high end and a decent grasp on rhythm that keeps them sounding energetic.
The accompanying app also offers an equaliser, so you can mess around with the levels until you find a mix that powers your quest for that elusive PB.
No frills wireless buds that’ll give you a real boost with their bass
