The JayBird Sportsband headphone may look retro, but don’t let the 80’s style fool you. These are Bluetooth headphones with apt-X audio feature that provides CD quality sound. Priced at just $99, they come in nine color schemes: limonade green, sonic blue, orange crush, runner’s red, toffee-apple red, midnight black, polar blue, powder-puff pink, snow white. Remote command buttons on the side offer play, pause, next track, back track, change volume and call answering functions. You can pair these headphones with any A2DP Bluetooth enabled device for bass-rich audio. If you happen to own Apple’s new Mac Mini, it is the first to carry apt-X and therefore, does not require a JayBird Bluetooth adapter to play in apt-X quality to the Sportsband Bluetooth headphones. JayBird offers 2 adapters that give you apt-X on other devices. The iSport and uSport each cost $50 when purchased with Sportsband. The iSport Bluetooth adapter is for iPods, iPhones and iPads, while the uSport Universal Bluetooth Adapter works with any device with a regular sized headphone jack (3.5mm).
