The Jaybird X3 and Jaybird Freedom F5 wireless headphones are both on sale for the same $100 price right now. That price matches the lowest drop for both headphones. It’s the first time since December the Freedom F5 have seen a price drop and only the third time in the X3’s history that it has dropped at all. Both deals are great and it really comes down to what you need out of your headphones.
The Freedom F5 headphones distinguish themselves from the X3 with a battery clip that adds extra charging time. The clip is detachable if you don’t need it for a quick run, but it’s a way to add a few extra hours of charge time if you’re going to be out for a while.
The X3 is the follow-up to the highly praised Jaybird X2 and has earned a few great reviews itself, like 4 stars from CNET. Both the X3 and the Freedom F5 have access to the MySound app, which lets you customize the sound from each device.
