JayBird Wireless Headphone Giveaway

Happy Monday!

I’m still relaxing in Florida living the life.

We rented a boat today and have been out on the open sea aka The Gulf of Mexico.

Ben is determined to talk me into living on a house boat and/or sailing around the world as opposed to living in a condo in Orange County where I’m very happy.

I did have a blast! But I don’t think the pirate’s life is for me.

 I’m on a boat. <- video link

Bonus of America: We saw dolphins swimming and jumping on the way back. Sadly, no manatee sighting. You know I am deeply in love with manatees, right?! It’s serious.

And as a consolation prize for reading RER from home/work/school/the bathroom while I’m enjoying paradise I have an awesome giveaway for you…

JayBird Wireless Headphones

A few months ago a rep from JayBird Sports contacted me about their BlueBuds X wireless headphones.

wireless headphones review

I’m very picky about the ear piece part of headphones so I wasn’t sure I’d like these. Luckily, they are super comfortable and don’t slip out.

wireless headphones review

I got them a few months ago and have been using them on and off when my ipod is dead. I was worried it would be complicated to set up, but it’s super easy. jaybird wireless headphones review

My favorite part of these headphones is that I don’t always take my phone to run, but using these you have to and I think running outside is just safer that way.

Um, plus there’s the whole no wires thing. Great sound, no wires. Not too shab.

The headphones are cool. My running pose not-so-much.

  1. says

    That’s a tough question… especially since my long run this weekend was music-less because my iPhone 4 is crapping out and being rude. But, it has been playing Tom Petty’s “Running Down a Dream” an AWFUL lot in the rotation lately. Love.

  2. Natalie P. says

    I am absolutely loving Fall Out Boy “Light Em Up”, such an inspiration at the very end of my run! Thanks for hosting this giveaway :)

  3. Sarah says

    I’ve been taking it easy (recovering from an injury) so Moby has been in my playlist a lot lately. It’s got a good beat but doesn’t get me all hyped up like my usual pop-mix does. Plus it takes me back to college and remembering the old days while I run definitely keeps my mind occupied.

  4. Nicole says

    I currently love this cover of “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”, but I can’t remember who it’s by! It’s not really like a “pump you up” workout song, but I’m obsessed with it.

  5. says

    I actually don’t usually listen to music when I run–I listen to audiobooks. Being a librarian, I need to get in my reading any way I can. :) Plus needing to know what happens in a story motivates me to get out and go!

  6. Meredith says

    I was obsessed with the Keri Hilson album “In a Perfect World” when I was studying in London many years ago… recently I’ve been listening to the album again and my favorite song to spin to right now is Get Your Money Up. It’s the perfect tempo!

  7. says

    Song: Movin’ by Group 1 Crew. Good way to get pumped, good message for the spirit, and it translate to running also.

    “If ya really wanna move, you got to get movin’; nothin left to do except to just do it”

    Love the FL pics. Calgon take me away….

  8. Jennie says

    I’m loving Come and Get It by Selena Gomez right now. Thanks for the video link. That made me laugh. :)

  9. Kim says

    The newest Tegan and Sara album, like the whole thing. Breakup songs are the best running music I don’t know it’s weird!

  10. Chris Cossairt says

    Love anything with a fast beat. Fall Out Boys Light Em Up is what gets me going this week. By the way, your little bit of paradise looks like Marco Island. My mother-in-law lives there and we visit many times during the year to help her with the upkeep of her house and boat. It is truly a tropical paradise! Enjoy!

  11. Erika says

    I have been looking for someone that has these! I have been dying to try and wanted to know if they fit well.

    My fav workout song ever, and the one I really end a run with full out is “The Saints are Coming” performed live at the Superdome by U2 and GreenDay. My family lives in NOLA, and when they sang this after the hurricane it energized the entire city, and it still drives me in the last 3 minutes of a run when you just want to start walking (everyrun). I cut it so the song starts right as the beat ramps up, and without fail I find that extra energy.

  12. Erin says

    Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, perennially. Bulletproof by La Roux is great, too! And Die Young by Kesha.

  13. Jennifer L says

    My favorite workout song is some song I found in a hockey highlight youtube video. I ripped it, but have no idea who sings it. It makes me want to score goals while I’m running, so it’s pretty great.

  14. Aimee M says

    I always use the same song when I need to get pumped–Kenny Chesney’s “Beer in Mexico.” It’s “our song” and my boyfriend is away in the Army right now so it lifts me up :)

  15. Sherrie says

    My fastest song on my long run this week was “Hella Good” from No Doubt. But I’m also really loving “50 Ways to Say Goodbye” from Train. I have been coveting those headphones in every review I’ve seen of them! I’m so tired of wrapping cords around my bra strap when I run so they don’t flap around…

  16. Brandy Corrales says

    I’ve been rocking out to P!nk and Don Omar lately! Those two artists make the miles disappear and I love it!

  17. says

    My workout song of the moment is Daft Punk’s “Lose Yourself to Dance.” The whole album is really great running music, actually!

  18. Jessica Lee says

    My 2 favorite running songs du jour are: We Own It by Whiz Khalifa & 2Chains (Theme song from Fast6) and Carry On by Fun.

  19. Colleen says

    Ohhhh I want these soooo badly! I’ve been playing We Own It in a lot of my classes this past week. Pick me!!!!! PS—I would totally live on a boat and cruise the Gulf!’

  20. Monica says

    Nelly – Porsche (it was the song when I passed the finish line on my first half marathon this year)

  21. Sarah says

    My workout song recently has been “We Own It” which is the theme from Fast & Furious 6. It’s not my usual style but I just love it for some reason!

  22. Scrabs says

    My fave workout song of the moment is #thatpower – from Will.i.am and The Biebs. Gets me ready to run on those days I don’t want to do anything! :)

  23. Candice says

    I just signed up for my first half. Ahh!! Those would be awesome for it! I am loving that Can’t Hold Us song right now. :)

  24. Johnna says

    I love the song Best Is Yet To Come by Red. I put it on repeat. Work out to it, mow the lawn to it, it’s on in my car. Get the picture?! I am in dire need of new headphones. My Bose in-ears are frayed with exposed wiring. But I love them because they actually stay in my ears!

  25. Samantha says

    It’s a toss up…Avicci “Levels” or Imagine Dragons “Radioactive”. I have lots of running mixes to keep me from getting bored. Those headphones look awesome!

  26. Jessica says

    I need your love by Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding and Blurred Line by Robin Thicke! Hey hey hey!

  27. says

    I listen to podcasts while I workout rather than music. But Mondays are cardio kickboxing class and one of my favorite songs that the instructor plays is You Can’t Stop the Beat from Hairspray.

  28. Jenny says

    I have a few, but lately, Janelle Monae’s “Tightrope” is what peps me back up when I’m lagging.

  29. Meg in MI says

    My all time favorite run song is a cover of BSB’s I Want it That Way, performed by Allister. It’s awesome!

  30. says

    I’m currently on the hunt for a comfortable pair of headphones, so I don’t have a favorite work out song this week.

    These do look really great, though! I always tend to get tangled in my headphone wires. :)

  31. ginger says

    My favorite workout song this week is Smoke a Little Smoke by Eric Church, but I love lots of songs. :)

  32. Country Girl Fit says

    I’m sure I’ll be sick of this song in a week because it’s played so often but I am loving “My Song Knows What You Did”.

  33. Julie says

    How did u know I was reading your blog in the bathroom ?!?;) I am totally into ‘cruise’ by Florida georgia line featuring nelly this week.

  34. Jenn says

    I’ve been rocking the 90s station on spotify all week. Nothing like some classic TLC or destiny’s child to make a 6am workout a little more bearable

  35. Eunbee says

    SO in love with Clarity at the moment! Picks me up in the early morning when I’m preferring the comfort of my warm bed (Chicago weather is insane!) :)

  36. Jasmine says

    My current favorite song that really pumps me up is “We Own It” by Wiz Kalifa and 2chains. This is the song from Fast and Furious 6 and it’s AMAZING!!! Check it out you’ll love it. It really does pump you up!!!

  37. Breanna says

    My favorite song has been Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore/Ryan Lewis. Every time it comes on I just go nuts.

  38. Katherine says

    My current workout jam is “Done” by the Band Perry. Impossible not to pound out a couple more miles when that’s playing!

  39. Genevieve says

    I’m still living Icona Pop-I Love It. I just wish it was a longer song! 2:30 min doesn’t do it justice!

  40. mike says

    This week I’ve been running to a remix of “Rocket” by Def Leppard. The remix is great on the longer runs…

  41. Jenny Ritchey says

    My 1st running song was “When did your heart go missing” by Rooney. It’s the one song in my running playlist I will never delete.

  42. Allison says

    Dirt off your shoulder by Jay-Z has been doing it for me lately whenever I think I can’t possibly run another step!

  43. amy says

    I listen to the Ryan Adams Pandora station. Not all that upbeat, but it does the trick for me.

    I’m dying for some of those headphones. :)

  44. says

    To Enter: Leave a comment with your favorite workout song this week.

    During my treadmill run, “Till the World Ends” by Britney Spears came up on Pandora. I have to say, my run quickly turned into a badly choreographed dance. Dancing while running looks bad. But I felt awesome.

  45. Hillary says

    I was stuck on “Save a Horse; Ride a Cowboy” by Big and Rich this morning on the elliptical. Funny, huh?

  46. Carmen says

    My workout song of the week is Radioactive by Imagine Dragons! Love that beat!! I am in need of some new headphones..Mine took a unexpected trip through the washing machine!! RIP little Buddies!!

  47. Becca L. says

    Man, I’m just being inspired by everyone else’s music to get a new playlist! i’ve been bored of mine for some time.

  48. Kelly says

    Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne… why? I’m not sure… but I’m diggin’ it.

    And I’ve been seeing these headphones on so many blogs and they look awesooooome

  49. Amber says

    I’ve been lusting after these headphones for quite some time now. My current favorite running song is Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke and Pharrell. So fun!

  50. Jean says

    When I start to get into a negative mood while running, I skip the ipod to “Funky Cold Medina” I can’t help but get in a better mood and sing along while trucking along.

  51. Kelly Anne says

    “Stompa” by Serena Ryder
    “Parklife” by Blur
    “I Need a Dollar” by Aloe Blacc
    “The Whip” by Locksley
    and most anything B.o.B.

    and, as I am from the Mitten, anything Eminem :-)

    My musical tastes for exercise are also driven largely by the beat.

  52. LaneM says

    Hey Monica! I love these mashups by DJ Earworm – he has a new mix called “Faster/Stronger” that is so cool!

  53. Rachel says

    I listen to christian music mercy me is in the shuffle right now, and I seriously need those earphones, no joke

  54. Angela says

    any old school (90s) hip hop while running – what can I say, I grew up in the 90s and hip hop was the best back then!

  55. Morgan says

    My top running song for the week WAS Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke up until about 2 minutes ago. Today was my little brother’s last day of high school EVER. We were driving and Here’s To Us by Halestorm started playing. It was so fitting for the occasion and the “kiss my ass” portion of the lyrics is exactly how I feel when I’m running, so I immediately had to promote it to numero uno.

  56. Christine says

    I’ve been loving the 90s hip hop station on Pandora for my runs. Brings back some good memories!

  57. Brooke Beneze says

    I need these! I always struggle with my headphones wire and have had a few too many close calls with iphone destruction on the treadmill…oops! It’s kind of old, but a song that REALLY pumps me up is “Who’s That Chick” by David Guetta featuring Rihanna. I swear I turn into my girl Rhi Rhi when that song comes on! it’s perfect/really dangerous for the treadmill :)

  58. Christina D says

    Still rocking out to Usher’s “scream”… Gets my legs moving faster every time! I am loving all the songs people are commenting with, my playlist definitely needs an update!

  59. says

    Those are awesome! I want!!
    Okay so this is going to sound REALLY silly, but I’m going old school this week. REALLY old-school. I’ve been digging WHAM! “Club Tropicana” this week. Silly, summer-y and a quick, light beat!

  60. Stephanie says

    My fav workout song this week is an oldie-but “Ready to Go” by Republica. Gets me going every time!

  61. Krista W. says

    My favorite workout song right now is Stronger by Kanye West. :)

    Thanks for the great giveaway and for sharing your beautiful vacation pictures.

  62. Mackenzie says

    I love it when Stronger comes on! I’m also a fan of This Girl is On Fire! They both make me want to start jamming out and empower me.

  63. Amy says

    I’m actually in dire need of a new playlist, but my husband got me on the new portugal and the man album-we saw them live 2 weeks ago!

  64. Katie M says

    I randomly downloaded the Glee version of “You Got the Beat” last week, and it has been stuck in my head (thanks to my running playlist) ever since. I like that its a super peppy song, so I think it makes me run faster :)

  65. Stephanie says

    hmmm i have so many random songs i am loving running to recently… but probably find you there by we the kings!

  66. says

    “Don’t Move” by Phantogram and “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklamore are some pretty new loves of mine, but a classic for me is “Pump It” by the Black Eyed Peas, always gets me going. :)

  67. Christine says

    I’ve been listening to “I Will Wait” by Mumford & Sons, such a catchy tune!

    Btw, I’m loving your blog!

  68. laura Cleveland says

    Scream and Shout. funny enough i put it on my playlist for my last 1/2 marathon and didn’t realize the language in the song. That was kinda thrilling at mile 5…..

  69. tiffany says

    i’m loving clarity by zedd…or any EDM songs. :) i blast them when i’m in the car by myself and they’re fun to work out to, too!

  70. Teri says

    I’ve been listening to a lot of Crystal Method lately so my favorite workout song this week and past month has been Divided By Night. I would love a chance at these beauties, as I’ve been eyeing them for months now.

  71. Grace says

    My favorite workout song has been “Keep on Running” by Goldspot–it’s just so obviously motivating!

  72. Joyce says

    I like a wide variety of songs but one of my faves is Cristina Aguilera & Pitbull “Feel this moment” but that’ll probably change next month. Really depends on my mood. Anything with a good beat will suffice.

  73. says

    Ohhh…I’m totally in <3 with Manatees to since my first visit to Florida this Jannuary! Maybe I was one in my last life! 😛

    My favorite song today (I change it nearly every day) is:
    Get Lucky from Daft Punk :)

  74. Amelia says

    My favorite workout song is usually my most recent download – right now it’s Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

  75. Christina says

    Those head phones are an awesome idea! My favorite workout song this week is a bit oldschool…It’s a Beautiful Life by Ace of Base. I forgot I had the CD in my car and have been listening to a few songs on repeat for the past week! Glad you are having a good time in FL!

  76. Sherry Rini says

    Right now I am liking Ceiling Can’t Hold Us – but I am a huge disco fan – so any disco is good to get me going!! These headsets look awesome – would love them :-)

  77. Alycia Wilson says

    “This Girl is On Fire” by Alicia Keys.I have heard some pretty great things about the wireless headphones.

  78. Peter Rivera says

    I can’t get the song out of my head, Learning to Walk Again by the Google Fighters. Looks like you’re having a great vacation.

  79. Amanda says

    I would love to win those headphones! My favorite workout song this week would be Britney Spears, “I Wanna Go”. Can’t go wrong with Britney!

  80. Allen Hill Jr says

    My running playlist has several good songs but Blown Away by Carrie Underwood and My Song knows What You Did in the Dark by Fall Out Boys are two of my faves.

  81. says

    Girl, you look awesome rockin’ the bikini! So glad you guys are having a good time. Like you, I’m picky about headphones. I’d love to try these out! My favorite workout song this week is Courageous by Casting Crowns. Check it out :) It’s a good one!


  82. says

    Favorite work out song for the week is “Little Of Your Time” by Maroon 5, from their “It Wont Be Long Soon” CD. Love this song, and love your give-aways. :)

  83. Ann says

    Don’t usually listen to rap but I do when I run. Been jamming some old school E.I. by Nelly lately. I’ve been ogling over these earbuds for a while….hope I win!!!

  84. Kate says

    I’d love a pair of wireless headphones! My favorite workout song of this week is “Get Lucky” Daft Punk

  85. Jonathan Baker says

    My favorite workout album to listen to is Since I Left You by The Avalanches, great energetic music! However, if we’re talking about single songs, Stronger by Kanye really pumps me up.

  86. says

    I would totally love to win these…my eight millionth pair of Skull Candy Inkd earbuds just died, and while I love them, I’m tired of buying new earbuds all the time. Plus, hello, wirless!!!

    Right now my favorite running jam is Gold by Owl City. Can’t wait to see who wins!

  87. Kattie says

    I mostly run for workouts and I don’t like any of the headphones that I have so I am usually musicless while working out. But I like anything that is upbeat.

  88. Stefanie says

    “Money make her smile” Bruno Mars & “Done” The Band Perry. Completely random, but whatever motivates to run faster :)

  89. Rebecca S says

    I usually like to listen to Kanye. But lately I have been listening to Bruno Mars radio on Pandora and it’s awesome!

  90. Andrea says

    Last year I finished my first 5k to Destiny’s Child – Survivor, amazing moment. But slowly Justin Timberlake – Rock Your Body is taking #1 spot. Not typically on my playlist but is on my running playlist and totally puts me in calorie burning mode.

  91. Nancy says

    Um “Summertime” by the Fresh Prince a.k.a. Will Smith. It is a must when the weather is warm and obviously you know all the words so you sing along!

  92. Jessica says

    A Little Party NEver Killed Nobody – Fergie, Qtip, and Goonrock from the Great Gatsby Soundtrack!

    Would LOVE to have these headphones!

  93. muneerahaf says

    My favorite this week is I Love It by Icona Pop. I enjoy singing out ‘I don’t care!’ but just in my head….sometimes.

  94. Betsy says

    “I’m Alive” by Michael Franti. It was the first song on my play list for my first half marathon last week – it was an awesome way to start!

  95. Kenny K says

    Because I train for Triathlons my favorite workout song is nature.. no headphones are allowed during race so no point training with them.

  96. Erin Alena says

    I’m a sucker for a power song in the last 3 minutes of my runs, so right now it’s Icona Pop’s “I Love It”. I know you’re supposed to cool it and slow down near the end of a run but I love giving it all I’ve got to this song!

  97. lindsey b says

    Oldie but goodie — “Baba O’Riley” by the Who. Woot for everyone starting Chicago training this week! I’m right there with ya!

  98. Kim F says

    I can’t actually say I’ve been into the tunes this week–I’ve been on the treadmill this week catching up on Game of Thrones!

  99. says

    My favorite workout song of the moment is Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore! It just gets me so pumped and I love listening to it right as I start my workout then again mid workout then at the end! It’s like my get hype song let’s do this!

  100. ck says

    i’ve been taking a break from running since i am currently 6.5 months preg, i’ve been doing long walks and have been blasting the 90’s, before you know it it’s been 4 miles. destiny’s child’s bills bills bills is always in my top three.

  101. Ashley G says

    My running jam this week is my standby pump up song, The Way You Move, by Outkast. It’s 110 in Phoenix, and I need music to keep me motivated in this heat.

  102. says

    I am really loving “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” By Fall Out Boy. Really fantastic beat for running…and I love the part that goes “I’M ON FIIIYAHHH” Keeps me going! :)

  103. Sarah G. says

    This is horribly embarrassing, but I love that Icona Pop “I love it” song… I’m going to go hang my head in shame now.

  104. Carolyn B. says

    Put me on the Blurred Lines bandwagon! If I win these headphones, I guess I have to get a new phone…dammit :)

  105. Heather F. says

    I have been hooked on La Roux’s Bulletproof for a few weeks now. I like to think I am bulletproof when running in Texas heat! :)

  106. Kelley says

    Tornado by Little Big Town. I don’t usually like country songs when I run but for some reason this one hit the spot.

  107. MMFernaays says

    Hi ~ I’m a fairly new reader, and fairly new to running. Just ran my first 5k in May, now I think I have been bitten by the running bug!

    Right now, I feel totally in sync with the Fall Out Boys song “My Songs Know What you Did in the Dark” ….everything but that song leave my head and I seem to run so much better!

    So glad I found your blog! ~ Monica

  108. Autumn says

    I am not ususally a country girl, but my friends and I were out for a girls night and went to hear a live band. They sang Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show. Love it!!!

  109. Kara says

    Ooh, love the idea of wireless earbuds, especially for ab work at the gym!

    Current favorite running song…this changes probably daily for me, but I am going to have to go with Sydney by Brett Dennen. It is a perfect easy run on a summer morning song.

  110. Lindsey says

    Ok. Totally random but I’ve been loving me some Prince lately, especially “Kiss” and “When Doves Cry” Oldies, but goodies!

  111. Tiffany S. says

    My favorite workout song is probably Iron Maiden “run to the hills” it makes me want to run really fast. Also, FYI manatees hang out in marinas because they like fresh water so they like it when boaters rinse off their boats. Good luck finding one! They are too cute!!

  112. Samantha says

    Ok so I am a child of the 80’s and my all time favorite make me happy, run a litte faster, push a little bit harder workout song is…..”Talk dirty to me!” By poison. Lol

  113. Melanie Lever says

    Definitely Kelly Clarkson’s What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! Especially in the heat!

  114. says

    OK, so I’m officially old because I have no idea who the hell most of these people are! I don’t usually run with music but when I do, I prefer to listen to upbeat stuff. Pearl Jam Backspacer is usually on the playlist!

  115. Stacie says

    Any old school Janet Jackson….oh crap!—-I just aged myself. HA! Thanks to you and Jaybird for the giveaway :)

  116. Anna M says

    I’ve actually started to listen to comedy podcasts while I run because I’m sick of EVERYTHING on my ipod!

  117. Cayce says

    One of my all time favorite songs to run to is the Timbaland/Miley Cyrus “We Belong to the Music”. It goes on every running playlist I have.

  118. says

    It sucks that I missed this. I just brought a pair of these head phones on my B-day in San Diego at the Rock and Roll Expo and someone stole them from me at work yesterday. I used them 3 times and really like them and now their gone.
