After I've had the chance to play around with the awesome Jaybird Bluebuds X (actually it's one of my favorites now), now I'm testing its baby brother, the Jaybird Freedom Sprint Secure Fit Wireless Buds. Like the Bluebuds X, the Freedom Sprint is also a Bluetooth-powered IEM (in ear monitors) that's perfect to use while working out. While the Bluebuds X sports a classy and low-profile design, this IEM has a unique elongated shape. It's bigger body makes it noticeable when you're wearing it.

It's one of the most appealing and beautiful IEM cases I've ever seen.
I bet kikay girls will love it (although it's unisex) because it looks like a powder case.

The Freedom Sprint Secure Fit Wireless Buds build quality seems very decent and durable. The IEM is made of plastic - the flat side (with Jaybird's logo) has a matte finish while the other side (where the ear tip is attached) is glossy. The Freedom Sprint has a half in-ear design (like that of ES20) which often gives a wider soundstage.
Even if it has a white color, the IEM is not dirt magnet. I believe this will last for a long time even if you're using it while working out as it features sweat proof functions.

As of the moment...
The Jaybirds Freedom Spirit could really be a good workout buddy. The sweat proof design and decent build quality should make this last for a while. When it comes to our initial impressions on its sound quality, it has that warm bassy sound signature that give your heart some thump and additional energy when working out. The device was very easy wear, has good comfort and above average isolation.Watch out for our full review in the days to come! :)
