Typically, Bluetooth earpieces aren't all that exciting. If you've seen one, you've seen them all, as the saying goes. JayBird has a habit of producing some pretty unique looking headphones, and that tradition has now been passed off to the world of Bluetooth headphones. The company originally announced the JF3 Freedom Bluetooth Headphones at CES, but now, they're ready to start shipping 'em to those in need of new ones.

They're specifically designed with secure-fit ear cushions, perfect for fitness freaks who can't stand their current 'buds falling out of their ears. The company is relying on a custom-made honeycomb design to keep them in place, and they're also sweat-proof and carry a lifetime warranty against sweat damage. The company claims that you'll get up to six hours of playback on a full charge, and the included hard-shell case, three sizes of ear tips and three sizes of ear cushions are included. Oddly enough, JayBird claims that these were inspired by the fog lamp grill of a sports car, and if you're the type of person who would appreciate that, you can pre-order a set now for $99.

If it said Handsome and Debonair they would have caught my interest. Still I might give them a go if the quality is good enough for my Adonis-like qualities.

This Bluetooth headset looks so much better than the old ones. I might get one for biking, because the buds I have now always seem to fallout at the wrong times.

Never stop learning... until you're dead.

Jack of all trades, master of none.

@animatortom That is a good one. I was always under the impression that you would be able to hear everything when you are running, biking, etc. I am sure many people have been hit because they could not hear the traffic. Now I like these for going to the gym maybe that I could see.

Yeah, they totally make sense for the gym that is almost a necessity, unless of course you are on the prowl.
 
I just thought it was funny if runners or bikers would block out their surroundings.
 
maybe these Chinese people in traffic were using the new jaybird JF3?

I train at home, forget paying gyms fees and people curling in the Squat Rack. These will come in handy when I start/finish my cut. I agree with animatortom on this one as well if you train outside be extra observant of your surroundings.
