Jaybird is back with one other attempt at actually wireless headphones with the Vista, a redesigned model that appears to repair the varied points that held back the company’s Run and Run XT models. The brand new buds enhance on the outdated ones in almost every way, together with extra reliable connectivity, a lighter design, higher battery life, and USB-C for charging.
Jaybird already launched a pair of really wireless headphones this year in the form of the Run XT; however, they had been an evenly up to date version of the corporate’s unique wireless Run model from 2017. Besides, they caught with the identical design and the entire identical issues that the first-technology model had.
The connectivity issues have completely mounted with the Vista, due to a new JBS1 chipset and connectivity system. The Jaybird Run design tried to alter the components for actually wireless headphones through the use of two Bluetooth connections. One was meant to attach the best earbud to a cellphone or laptop, and the opposite was to communicate between the headphones (as an alternative of Near Field Magnetic Induction, which most headphones used on time). That design didn’t work to keep the headphones in sync.
The Vista resolve that drawback through the use of two unbiased connections to the person’s phone. In all my time using the headphones, I never had difficulty. The brand new system additionally implies that you should utilize every earbud independently, must you only need to put on one earbud.
The Vista even has a new look that also options the replaceable wing/ear tip design that Jaybird makes use of on all its merchandise. As somebody who has an adamant time discovering earbuds that match, I didn’t have any points with the Vista staying securely in my ears, even during a sweat-soaked run outside.
The case is similarly smaller and lighter than earlier than, and it makes use of USB-C instead of Micro USB to charge. Even though each the earbuds and case is smaller, the battery life is higher on the Vista than on the Run. Jaybird claims six hours of use from the buds and another 10 hours with the case (up from four hours and eight hours, respectively).
The Jaybird Vista is set to cost $179.99 — the same value because of the previous model — when they release sometime in August.
