SB2 Sportsband review

Most sports headphones have a more compact and lightweight in-ear design, but JayBird’s SB2 Sportsband stands out with an 80s-inspired on-ear design that wraps right over your head. It’s available in a variety of colours ranging from powderpuff pink to the more sedate midnight black.

But while the SB2’s look is rather retro, its hi-tech features and sound quality are bang up to date. The SB2 uses Bluetooth wireless technology so that you can hurl yourself around without getting the cables caught on anything. The sound quality using basic Bluetooth is very good, with a nice warm sound and solid bass.

The SB2 also supports the increasingly popular Apt-X audio technology, which provides better quality than basic Bluetooth for wireless audio.

OUR VERDICT

The only minor disappointment is that the wireless tech and Apt-X option do bump up the price a little, making the SB2 one of the more expensive models in this group.
