Giveaway: JayBird BlueBuds X Headphones to Win!

JayBird BlueBuds X Wireless Headphones

JayBird BlueBuds X Wireless Headphones

With the CrossFit Open coming to a close this week many athletes will either be ramping up their training to prepare themselves, or their team, for Regionals, while others will be taking stock of the last 5-weeks and begin looking towards 2014.

One thing we all know is that this time of year see’s a dramatic shift in training protocols. While some will go back to Mainsite, others will begin focusing on specific elements such as running, rowing, gymnastics, O-lifting and other weaknesses you might have noticed over the past five weeks.

As a result, many of you will find yourselves training solo and not in the usual group setting.

While this may have its downsides, the great thing is you can now whack a pair of headphones into your iPhone or Android phone and go on your long row, run or met-con while listening to your favorite music.

Although, the reality is, using traditional headphones can be extremely frustrating during training, with cords and wires bouncing all over the place. I can’t tell you how many times I have spent trying to figure out how to get those darn cords into the correct position so I could simply concentrate on my workout.

JayBird BlueBuds X Wireless Headphones

The headphones with the beautiful carrying case

That is where the new JayBird Sports BlueBuds X Wireless Bluetooth Headphones come in handy. These bad boys are designed specifically for training, meaning they don’t come with long, annoying cords that only cause you frustration while working out.

On top of that, these new headphones are also sweat-proof, come with an 8-hour battery life and include SignalPlus technology (ensuring your music does not skip). But one of the best features is its specialised patented ‘Secure Fit’, which ensures the headphones stay in your ears, rather than falling out during a set of box jumps or a rigorous 500-meter row.

So to commemorate, or celebrate (depending on how you’re feeling), the conclusion of the 2013 CrossFit Open, we are giving you the chance to win a pair of JayBird Sports BlueBuds X Headphones valued at $169.95!

We have two sets to giveaway this week. All you have to do to enter is tell us in the comments section below:

JayBird BlueBuds X Wireless Headphones

  • Running

  • These look sweet! I would definitely use these biking and running while I start training for an Olympic-length triathlon that I’m doing with my dad for his 50th birthday!

  • Steven J.

    This site rocks!! Especially with all these cool giveaways. Anyhow, for these headphones, the exercise I would utilize them is when I am running miles and miles on a hiking trail and just zone out with the music provided by the awesome bluetooth headphones. I have tried running with numerous of headphones such as the apple headphones and even the beats headphones but they do not cut it. The wires are always getting in the way or the ear piece always falls out, therefore defeating the purpose of even trying to train in them. With these cool headphones, I will not have to worry about that and I can even experiment trying it with some Crossfit wods. That will be awesome!

  • I would use them on any running wods.

  • They look awesome. I’m following CrossFit Football at the moment, so I could do with some loud music to fire me up when doing the CrossFit Football Total (Power clean, Back squat, Bench press, Deadlift)
    Aricle added to Facebook, Twitter, Google + and Pinterest

  • I’d use the JayBird Blue Bud wireless X headphones for the long hard slogs in ridiculously hot shed in the afternoon here in Darwin, keeping anything in/on is near impossible in the heat combined with the humidity headphones just slip clean out when running leaving you having to replace them after a wear because they are so drenched with sweat that they no longer work. My primary use for these headphones would be when doing a wod that requires music but there is a class being coached and not able to have the music played through the regular speakers. Rowing/ Running would be when the headphones would be used the most but would also like to test them during double unders maybe even OPT flight simulator? 🙂

  • These look incredible! Besides using them for WOD’s in the park, I’d probably use these the most while biking and running while I train for an Olympic length triathlon that I’m doing with my dad for his 50th birthday! I Added this article on Facebook and Twitter too!

  • TJ Mc

    Hoping these will make the rower more bearable.

  • I could use them in open gym at inner west to drown out daves music selections. plus to give me directions while on the motorbike when i head out to watch regionals

  • Definitely use these to make running more enjoyable!

  • mikefwtx

    Running….I can only run about 10 feet without music playing! Blame it on my ADD.

  • Sprints!

  • Amanda Refartar

    I would use them like to test them out when working on my deadlifts

  • Ratty

    At last something to block out the screaming kids whilst exercising!

  • Ummmm, wow! Sign me up! I know these would be awesome for the base WOD we’re doing for our food challenge. Well, we did Cindy at the start and when we stop in a couple of weeks, we’re doing it again to see how we improved, these would be awesome for that twenty minutes of fun 🙂

  • Amanda Refartar

    I don’t have twitter but am hoping this counts as an extra entry

  • I would use them for running or maybe on the bike

  • Tommy Gianakos

    I think they’re great for hero wods or what I want them badly for, my 20 rep squat program. Gotta keep intense for the final 10 reps

  • Chris

    Rowing! Need something more than that little screen in front of me to distract me while I’m long distance rowing!

  • I’d love to use these for any workout including hand stand pushups……. because being hit in the chin with your ipod sucks!…… just saying….

  • Robin Cadmus

    Best used for long met con type workouts…chippers and the like. Helps to keep focus!

  • John

    Double Unders…!!! Those dang wires get all over the place…

  • I would use these for all of my WODs at my university’s Rec center, especially for any movement that involves the front rack position. Right now my wired ear buds fall out when the bar pinches the wire on my collar bone. This would be especially useful in my runs too! Love the site and the articles, keep up the great work guys!

  • I got a feeling they are designed to do Hand Stand Push Ups! and if I win one, I will show you how 🙂

    • Phil G

      This i wanna see! GOod luck!

  • Any of the oly lifts. I snapped a pair of headphones when they fell out during heavy clean work. It seamed an ear bud didn’t mix well with a barbell.

  • Shante Williams


  • Shante Williams


  • Running!

  • They sound like they get you ready for the unknown… So I would literally use them for any WOD that gets thrown at you… But I figure they will come particularly handy for rowing (I can’t recall how often I had to stop to untangle my cord) and Toes2Bar and any kind of pull up/ butterfly practice…

  • John Phillips

    I’d use them for running and cycling, as well as tough indoor erg and stationary bike workouts.

  • Finn

    Suicides! If they stay in for that they’re good to go.

  • Burpees! I need to block everything else out and just keep throwing my body back down to the ground – loud music and sturdy headphones would surely make this an easier task!

  • Running! Constantly look like im having some sort of fit pushing the ear bud back in when it falls out or im trying to molest myself moving the cord around under and around my clothes

  • Kem

    Rowing and running. I hate focusing on the cords of my headphones especially when rowing.

  • I need to improve my running cos I am just so slow on the 400m runs in WODs – so I need these headphones to listen to music to distract me from the pain and boredom of the run!

  • Fight Gone Bad!!! This is what we are doing today & it would be great!

  • afto

    heavy heavy back/front squats 3x a week. no doubt. only way to get thru them.

  • I wear my regular headphones for EVERYTHING – running/rowing/biking – constantly varied functional movement done at high intensity. I also wear it while riding the bus to work, while at work, and these I could also hook up to my PS3 for relax time and playing some Assassins Creed/Uncharted Multiplayer.

    Consider all the other things I have to do to enter complete, doing it all meow.

  • sean garcia

    Burpees of course! Also would be great for those active rest days at the track!

  • I’d probably wear them most for running and TABATAs, but they’d be good for the strength portion of my WODs. Thanks for the chance at a giveaway.

  • I have to pick a single exercise? That is darn near impossible! I would use these in the gym lifting, during a WOD, and even at home cutting grass. These would be an awesome addition to my gear bag.

  • I’m new to (6 months) Crossfit, but loving it! I would use these on WOD box jumping, burpee’s. My current headphones/ear buds don’t cut it. They constantly fall out to the point where I take them off.

  • JBok

    Has to be double unders or speed/agility work. Toughest workouts to keep headphones in.

  • JBok


  • Rowing! It is so mind numbingly boring and I am easily distrac….

  • Kate

    Would use them for every work out at the moment when I get sweaty my earphone cord clings to me and my ear phones get pulled out or I am continually pulling the cord up to get some slack so they do not fall out, as every second counts this could be costing me those extra rep I need to finish and set new PR’s, would totally benefit from having a pair.

  • Gracie Anderson

    Not having long cords connected to my player would be awesome! It’s fine for long runs and rowing but I can’t listen to my iPod when I’m Oly lifting. Too bothersome. Please send me a pair. I’ll take them to regionals with me if they get here in time! 🙂

  • christian

      • jealous! Great job Kelly!

        • Not to worry dustin. We still have another set to giveaway this week. Make sure you get all your entries in and a good comment and it could be you next. Best of luck

    • Hey Kelly we have announced you as the winner here and in our video post. I’ve also tried to contact you through your facebook account all to no avail. Can you please email me today otherwise you will forfeit your prize and we will have to choose someone else:

  • Running, jumping, lifting, pushing, pulling, rowing. Sweating in general.

  • Mike Shaw

    Box jumps and burpees or Burpee box jumps either way I need more speed with these.

  • Crossfit and during the runs. I need something to take me away from the pain.

  • Kieran

    Exercise? Rope climbs! Nothing’s more annoying that climbing, then half way up having your bloody headphones get tangled up around your arm somehow, or just plain fall out and annoy the shit out of you on the way down.

    Workout wise? I’d use them in my benchmark WOD; the CIA 7 hero workout. Last month I used my corded headphones and had to get rid of them in the first round. Just the length of the workout, everything burns (even my spleen wants to explode), so music would be great to get me through it during my testing phase coming up!

  • Ben


  • Rowing for me!

    pull ups. my mental voice needs to be quieted so I can hang onto the bar longer.

  • I go through so many sets of headphones, these look really good – perfect for my long runs!

  • Double unders! All that bouncing around makes normal ear buds fall out of the ear, but the JayBirds are awesome! And the cord on normal headphones gets in the way for dead lifts. Frustrating.

  • YoGro

    Rowing and more rowing…and a little bit of running…

  • While doing hang squat clean thrusters!! Oh gosh, anything that takes my mind off them will help AND having no chords/wires dangling to choke me would definitely help 🙂

  • Timmy A.

    I’d use it for muscle ups. I hate it when i do muscles ups and my corded ear phone come off and fly all over the place and get tangled.

  • Erica

    Definitely while I do interval training/crossfit & training for the tough mudder coming up! They would be soo handy & allow me not to worry about the cords getting in the way of my workout!

  • Daniel Thompson

    Burpees. If these can stay in when I’m when I’m jumping up and down while doing burpees, they would be great headphones!

  • Rich

    Easy… all of them. Let me know when I can expect my headphones in the mail.

  • Rick Goullet

    I am in the Navy and would use these at sea on my upcoming deployment whilst doing Crossfit

  • Helen

    Running & Kettlebell work.

  • While I’m running, rowing, lifting and doing wall balls these 4 excercices sometimes become a tough matter for me, so having this JayBird headphones will give that extra pump up that is always need during workouts and smashing those PR’s

  • James minton

    Murph! All the running pull-ups push-ups and air squats . The wireless would be great and I got to have headphones when running!

  • I need something that won’t come out when i’m working on my sprinting and jumping. I have ruined a great deal of head phones while working out.

  • I would use them when I do Fran so I couldn’t hear my laboured breathing!

    • Stu mac

      I’d give them to Fran if she would be nice to me!

  • During my Strength & Conditioning sessions they usually run 2 hours and good music really helps me stay in the zone. Especially during snatches,clean and jerks! No wires to get in the way

  • Kev

    I would use them for running, skipping and bag work.

  • aarone

    Long distance cycling! Helps with the motivation up the long, steep hills

  • Wall Balls

  • Home WOD, strength training, the occasional 5k/10k. Anytime that I’m in a globo gym and Britney or some boy-band is blaring over the in-house speakers.

  • Just wrapping up our 2 month whole life challenge with a repeat of “Cindy” next week. Oh boy, twenty minutes of all my favorite things. Thinking these might help keep me motivated enough to get through the pulls up and pushups. After Cindy, all I can think about are double unders, how nice would it be to not having an iPod/iPhone falling out of your pocket on double unders?

    • retweeted, plus oned, pin it to win it and of course I like it!

  • Jimmy Watson

    i would use them for boxing or sprinting or just general lifting. I actually had a good idea about using them for football because the coach can just call the players phone that’s paired with Bluetooth on the quarterbacks phone so the coach can tell him through the blue buds x which has a huge range of bluetooth and with the secure fit they wont fall out. Also since if has a microphone so the quarter back can tell the wide receivers when he is going to throw to them if they have the ear buds in as well. My coach said sure but everyone has to buy their own.
