Wireless earbuds are all the rage right now. And there's a good reason for that -- wires are annoying. Jaybird has a new pair of truly wire-free Bluetooth 'buds called the RUN, and it shouldn't take you too long to guess what they're made for.

This fall seems like the season we're finally going to see an amazing new family of gadgets: completely wireless headphones that work properly. Sure, companies have tried for years, but most of those attempts have sucked (or been really hard to actually buy). And now, Jaybird is sprinting out of the gates with Run, a slick set of earbuds that practically disappear in your ears. Unfortunately, the new Jaybird buds have some problems.
I am listening to music at all times. Always. I've missed whole memos of verbal information and dodged countless potentially life-changing conversations. I've been the guy in a bar with headphones on. And carrying me through this blissful solitude was a pair of indestructible $10 corded earbuds that I knew to sound only kind of good. Wireless earbuds usually market themselves towards the sporty, sweat-prone types, and I'd yet to find a pair that could also help me tune out the world 24 hours a day. That's still not the case, but the Jaybird X3 comes pretty damn close.
I'm obsessed with wireless headphones. Once you get past the inevitable connectivity conundrum, it's simply brilliant to listen to music comfortably without being tethered to a device. But wireless earbuds never lived up to that promise -- until now.
