JayBird on Thursday announced the launch of two new earbud products aimed at athletes looking for audio products for their workout. They’ve also upgraded their JB200 Freedom, Bluetooth stereo headphones that work with iPhones and iPod touches running iPhone OS 3.0.
JB200 Freedom, redesigned with better bass and audio quality, is priced at $129. It features gasket-sealed rubber overmolded buttons and is guaranteed against sweat getting inside. It also has an integrated microphone so you can take or make calls. It will also work with a Mac or PC that support A2DP Bluetooth profile devices.
TE1 Tiger Eyes earbuds are wired, but sport 8mm neodymium drivers, a titanium coating over the speaker diaphragms and an integrated microphone with answer and volume control. It’s priced at $89.
Endorphin Rush headphones feature 10mm neodymium drivers and a zipper-like secure point so you can tighten the cable behind your head, out of the way of your workout. It costs $99.
