Jaybird Tarah Pro wireless headphones have a 14-hour battery life, up to 800 feet of range (3 rooms apart), are waterproof with deep bass and crisp highs. I’ve been working out, running and biking with them for 2 months and compared them to my Jaybird X3 in this review.
Being a triathlete, I have to put many hours for long runs and bike rides and wanted headphones that last. I own 3 pairs of Jaybird X3s and have to rotate between them as batteries don't hold the charge after 2 years. Rated at 8 hours, I'm lucky to get 2 hours from each pair.
$159 price tag is a bit high, but I decided to splurge for the all-new design and some features that have been bugging me with Jaybird X3. I was choosing between Jaybird X4 and Jaybird Tara Pros, but after reading reviews, it seemed that Jaybird X4 are waterproof X3 with minor changes. I also own Jaybird X, X2, and Jaybird Freedom, but Jaybird X3 are their closest comparison.
I decided to upgrade to the Jaybird Tarah Pro before leaving for a 3 week trip to Europe. I didn't want to deal with charging and juggling between three pairs of Jaybirds X3 and just focus on training while traveling and competing.
This review is broken up into multiple sections to focus on specific features.
