#Earthproof: Jaybird Vista Wireless Sport Headphones

Finally—Bluetooth earbuds for both audio- and outdoor-enthusiasts. Tested by extreme athletes all around the globe, the Vista is the lightest, most compact, and most advanced headphone Jaybird has ever offered. With industry-leading battery life and #EARTHPROOF shock, dust, water, and sweat-proof IPX7 construction, Vista boosts the mileage of your active audio experience. (IPX7 is a waterproof rating for immersion in up to 1 metre of water.)

Sound: The Jaybird app gives you infinite EQ control over the redesigned 6mm milled drivers—improved driver accuracy and less harmonic distortion. The immersive, consistent sound quality is distinct at low volume but not overpowering at high volume. See the technical sound details below.

Fit: three sizes of interchangeable, silicone eargels ensure a secure, ultra-comfortable fit that feels weightless in your ears during intense activity. We found the Vista unshakeable during trail-running—a much more reliable fit than other sport earbuds we’ve tried, which tended to loosen after longer sessions.
