For travelers and workout junkies, it’s hard to find a good pair of headphones. The standard earbuds that come with your iPhone are made of unforgiving plastic, making it hard to get a good fit and have them stay in place during a workout. Sweat can damage components while cords can get in the way of exercise. Enter the BlueBuds X from Jaybird, a set of Bluetooth headphones made for working out.


Made of two earpieces connected by a rubberized band that goes behind the neck, a fastener and adjustable length ensure a secure fit. JayBird is offering a lifetime guarantee against any sweat damage, so you can be confident the BlueBuds will take a beating during your workout routine. A discreet, inline remote and microphone allow you to control your music and take calls with excellent clarity. There is a pop-off cover that reveals the micro-USB connection, which you can charge with the packaged cable.


For music, the BlueBuds X deliver a solid low end without attenuating the treble, a common problem with bass-heavy headphones. Bass-heavy songs at high volumes don’t distort, while the crisp highs cut through cleanly without sounding harsh. The sound quality of the BlueBuds X competes with traditional headphones, and is miles ahead of the curve when compared to other exercise headphones.

Avoid the Crowds with a Second-City Honeymoon

Second-city travel is one of the hottest trends of 2020. It involves avoiding the over-crowded, over-touristed cities that are historically top travel destinations and visiting nearby, lesser-known destinations instead. Travelers are learning that, while well-known destinations are popular for a reason, less-popular cities also have plenty to offer with fewer crowds and cheaper costs.
