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.

The Redneck Games

One of Georgia’s greatest cultural gifts might be coming to an end. The Redneck Games, which began in 1996, have seen a dip in attendance in recent years. A lack of sponsors means many of us might never know the joys of “bug zapping by spitball” unless an influx of travelers can help revive the event.
