JayBird SB2 Sportsband Bluetooth Headphones – Retro Styling, Modern Conveniences

Looking for a pair of wireless headphones to complement your super tight jeans? JayBird’s SB2 Sportsband headphones should serve as the perfect tech-cessory for your 80′s inspired hipster wardrobe thanks to their wide headband and small collection of colors ranging from subtle to almost neon.

But what’s that you say? You embrace the 80′s except when it comes to technology? Well you’ll be happy to know that in addition to Bluetooth A2DP support, the headphones also support the newer apt-X Bluetooth audio codec, which is apparently included in Apple’s new Mac Mini. However, if you wanted to take advantage of its CD-quality wireless sound with other gear like the iPhone, you’ll have to pony up an extra $50 for a small adapter. The iSport (pictured above) which is compatible with the iPhone and other iDevices, or the uSport which connects to the headphone jack of pretty much any other audio source.

The JayBird SB2s themselves will set you back $99 for any of the colors, and like with most Bluetooth headphones they include buttons on the side for controlling your music, as well as an integrated mic for making calls.

    1) How is the audio quality over A2DP (without the adapter)?

    2) Where is the mic?

    That is just a pure headset so don't expect a mic at it. Anyway, the design looks great and perfect for techie people.

    The article says “as well as an integrated mic for making calls.” I am just curious where it is.

    I agree the design does look really cool.

    This is indeed also a headset so does have a little subtle mic hole on the bottom of the left headphone, I personally just use mine as headphones, been waiting a long time to get Bluetooth headphones this good..

    The audio quality is amazing providing you buy the apt-x Universal Bluetooth Adapter, I tell you this little thing looks fantastic and the quality is amazing, its like its wired, the audio goes really high with deep base and clear as a bell and most important of all, it instantly gets rid of audio lag.. so you can watch movies and not have the audio out of sync with the lips.. so I would defiantly recommend these, but get the apt-x stuff as the quality over the old Bluetooth standard is average and you get audio lag. apt-x is amazingly brilliant for Bluetooth audio..

    This is just awesome, I’ve seen some other designs on the wireless headphone front, and nothing compares to this. Nice to see something really “tailored” for that iPhone too and I’m sure it works with the iTouch as well? Love it!
