Jaybird’s Vista earbuds overcome the company’s true wireless problems

Jaybird is again with one other try at actually wi-fi headphones with the Vista, a redesigned mannequin that appears to repair the varied points that held again the corporate’s Run and Run XT fashions. The brand new buds enhance on the previous ones in practically each means, together with extra dependable connectivity, a lighter design, higher battery life, and USB-C for charging.

Jaybird already launched a pair of actually wi-fi headphones this yr within the type of the Run XT, however they have been a calmly up to date model of the corporate’s authentic actually wi-fi Run mannequin from 2017. Additionally they caught with the identical design and all the similar issues that the first-generation mannequin had.

I’ve been utilizing the Vista for a couple of week as my essential headphones, and to date, they’ve held up in addition to some other top-notch actually wi-fi headphone available on the market in the present day.


The connectivity points have been utterly fastened with the Vista, because of a brand new JBS1 chipset and connectivity system. The Jaybird Run design tried to vary the system for actually wi-fi headphones by utilizing two Bluetooth connections. One was meant to attach the appropriate earbud to a telephone or laptop, and the opposite was to speak between the headphones (as an alternative of Close to Subject Magnetic Induction, which most headphones used on the time). That design didn’t work to maintain the headphones in sync.

The Vista resolve that downside by utilizing two impartial connections to the consumer’s telephone. In all my time utilizing the headphones, I by no means had a problem. The brand new system additionally implies that you should utilize every earbud independently, do you have to solely wish to put on one earbud.

The Vista even have a brand new look that also options the replaceable wing / ear tip design that Jaybird makes use of on all its merchandise. As somebody who has a very troublesome time discovering earbuds that match, I didn’t have any points with the Vista staying securely in my ears, even throughout a sweat-soaked run exterior.

The Vista are additionally even lighter than earlier than, weighing in at six grams every. (For comparability, a single AirPod weighs 4 grams.) Just like the Run XT, they’re additionally rated for IPX7 waterproofing and really function a brand new waterproofing system. The {hardware} elements are utterly sealed off in an inner capsule, which the corporate says ought to assist make them much more proof against sweat than merely coating the components with waterproof supplies (prefer it has achieved for its different headphones).


The case is equally smaller and lighter than earlier than, and it makes use of USB-C as an alternative of Micro USB to cost. Even supposing each the earbuds and case are smaller, the battery life is definitely higher on the Vista than on the Run. Jaybird claims six hours of use from the buds and one other 10 hours with the case (up from 4 hours and eight hours, respectively).

The Jaybird Vista are set to value $179.99 — the identical value because the previous mannequin — after they launch someday in August.
