Otherwise, if you are practical then you would choose the jaybirds. But for their money, the jaybirds are an attractive option and easily the brands best portable headphone package to date BeatsX and pound-for-pound the best headphone from apple. .
Comparing features, it becomes clear that Apple’s BeatsX earbuds are better. Out of them earphones I’ve tested with the W1 chip the Apple’s BeatsX are my favorite.
