Jaybird Vista 2 – ANC True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds for Sports

Working out is a great way to stay healthy, but staying truly committed to a fitness regime can be hard. Nevertheless, listening to music while working out can bring any fitness enthusiast several benefits. Research suggests that listening to music during workouts / sports activities can help people to stay distracted from pain and fatigue, and it can also help to elevate one’s mood, as well as increase endurance, reduce perceived effort, and it may even promote metabolic efficiency. In fact, a study conducted in 2012 suggests that music can function as a metronome, ultimately helping athletes to maintain a steady pace, consequently helping to reducing false steps, which ultimately, also decreases energy expenditure. Now, for listening to music during workouts, you’ll obviously require a pair of earbuds that’s completely sweat-proof. Moreover, you’ll probably also want those earbuds to pack some quality-of-life functionalities such as Active Noise Cancelling, as well as Touch Controls, and also Bluetooth Connectivity. This brings us to the Jaybird Vista 2, which pack all of those features, along with a few more.

The Jaybird Vista 2 are true wireless earbuds that feature great sound quality, along with Active Noise Cancellation, a Transparency Mode, a IP68 Waterproof Rating, Customizable Touch Controls, Bluetooth 5.0 Connectivity, Voice Assistant Support, a Customizable EQ Audio Profile, and up to 24 hours of battery life.

Designed with an active lifestyle in mind, these ANC true wireless Bluetooth earbuds not only allow you to stay aware of your surroundings when necessary thanks to their Transparency Mode, but they can also have their ANC Mode enabled to reduce background noise when you’re looking to stay focused during workouts, all while simultaneously enjoying your favorite tunes at any time.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the Jaybird Vista 2 and check out everything that these true wireless Bluetooth earbuds have to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with their size, each of the Jaybird Vista 2 Earbuds measures exactly 0.61 inches long by 0.79 inches wide by 0.63 inches tall (15.7 x 20.3 x 16.2 mm). These earbuds are also ultra-lightweight, as earbud only weighs 0.19 oz. (5.4 g).

Not only are these true wireless earbuds ultra-portable, but the Vista 2 also portray a very minimalist and ultra-modern design, which ultimately gives them a fairly discrete, yet still stylish look.

Speaking of their design, note that these true wireless Bluetooth earbuds feature a unique Modular Design that ensures users are always able to get a comfortable and truly ergonomic fit, no matter their ear-size or ear-shape, and that ultimately making these Bluetooth earbuds suitable for practicing almost any kind of sports.

Modular Design based on 3 sets of Interchangeable Secure-Fit Sport Eargels

This is mainly thanks to the earbuds included three (x3) sets of Interchangeable Secure-Fit Sport Eargels, which come in three different variations: a (S)mall-size without Ear-Pins, a (M)edium-size with Ear-Pins, and a (L)arge-size with Ear-Pins.

The earbuds’ included pairs of Secure-Fit Sport Eargels are super-secure, and as such, you can be assured that they will never come off once you choose you preferred size-option.

Moreover, the Jaybird Vista 2 Earbuds also feature an extremely durable construction, because, and as we’ve already said before, these true wireless earbuds are designed with an active lifestyle in mind.

On that note, know that integrated at the outer-side of the earbuds, we have an ultra-durable protective WindDefense fabric that keeps the earbuds’ internal microphones better protected from background noises and loud wind gusts, ultimately ensuring that any sound interference is avoided so that users can achieve a more clear voice-pick-up sound.

Jaybird Vista 2
Extremely Durable Construction – Military-Standard 810G Rating

The Vista 2 are rated to have a Military-Standard 810G Rating, meaning that they’re tested to be capable of withstanding freezing temperatures, as well as unexpected shocks from other objects and impacts from accidental drops.

On top of the earbuds’ ultra-durable build, these earbuds also have a IP68 Weather-Resistance Rating, which not only makes them dust-proof, but also both sweat-proof and waterproof (meaning resistant to being submerged underwater up to a maximum depth of 4.92 ft. / 1.5 m underwater for up to 30 minutes).

Jaybird Vista 2
IP68 Weather-Resistance Rating (Dust-Proof, Sweat-Proof & Waterproof)

Last but not least, we also have the earbuds’ dedicated wireless charging case, which, just like the Vista 2, comes at a reasonably compact size, measuring just 2.93 inches long by 0.98 inches wide by 1.51 inches tall (74.6 x 25 x 38.5 mm), and only weighing 1.50 oz. / 42.8 g (without the earbuds inside it).

Wireless Charging Case w/ built-in Lanyard – Compact and Lightweight

The earbuds’ charging case comes equipped with a built-in Lanyard for extra-portability. Additionally, just like the earbuds, the Vista 2’s wireless charging case also features a fairly durable construction, meaning that is it built to last.

Similarly to earbuds, their wireless charging case also features a IP54 Rating, which makes it dust-resistant, and also resistant against water-splashes.

IP54 Rating (Dust-Resistant & Water-Resistant)

This means that you can take it with you by the water-side (at the pool, at the beach, etc.) without having to worry about it getting damaged from water-splashes (again, note that the case is not waterproof, so keep that in mind).

AUDIO SPECS & AUDIO QUALITY

Moving on to the earbuds’ audio specifications and their audio quality. For producing their sound, the Vista 2 utilize a set of high-end 6mm Milled Sound Drivers, which ultimately allow these true wireless earbuds to offer their users a great sound quality.

In sum, the earbuds’ sound quality packs all the details you’d want to see, including crystal-clear highs (high-frequency sounds), nice and smooth mids (meaning mid-frequency sounds such as mid-range vocals), and a rich and booming bass (low-frequency sounds).

The earbuds’ 6mm Drivers feature a Speaker Sound Sensitivity of 103.5 dB (± 1.5dB at 1KHz), a Sound Output of 12 mW RMS (with level limit), a Sound Impedance of 23 Ohm (± 15% at 1KHz), a Total Harmonic Distortion under 3% (at 1KHz, 1mW), and a Frequency Response that can vary between 20 Hz to 20kHz (20,000 Hz).

It’s also worth noting that these true wireless earbuds support a 16-bit Stereo Audio Format.

Equipped with high-end 6mm Milled Sound Drivers & wind-guarded Digital MEMS Omni-Directional Microphones

Furthermore, these earbuds also come equipped with two integrated Digital MEMS Omni-Directional Microphones (which are protected from the wind by their WindDefense fabric) that allow the Jaybird Vista 2 to accurately monitor the background ambient noise as well as detect a user’s Voice. This means that these earbuds can be used for performing Voice Calls (and for picking up your voice in Video Calls), as well as for interacting with your Smartphone’s Voice Assistant (such as Siri, for example).

The earbuds’ built-in Digital MEMS Omni-Directional Microphones feature a Sound Sensitivity of -38dB (± 3dB at 1KHz, 0dB = 1V/Pa).

Lastly, and as said before, these true wireless earbuds feature a Transparency Mode simply called “SurroundSense”, which can be enable to allow you to stay perfectly aware of your surroundings without ever missing a beat from your tunes.

SurroundSense Transparency Mode keeps you aware of your surroundings

In addition, whenever you’re looking to stay truly focused during workouts, you can also enable the earbuds’ ANC Mode to trigger their Active Noise Cancellation function, which will greatly reduce any background noise within your surroundings, ultimately allowing you to work out while listening to your favorite tunes.

ANC Mode reduces background noise to let you focus on your workout while listening to your tunes

Both the earbuds’ SurroundSense Transparency Mode and ANC Mode can be easily and quickly enabled via their Smartphone Companion App (the Jaybird App – discussed in greater detail at the end of the article).

On a side note, know that you can use either earbud individually, or ultimately, both earbuds together.

INTERFACE & BUILT-IN TOUCH CONTROLS

As mentioned before, these true wireless earbuds also boast built-in Customizable Touch Controls that can be used by gently touching and/or holding the earbuds’ Touch Interface, which basically works as an actual physical button.

Built-In Touch Controls

Configured by default, and specifically for playing Media / Music, performing a Single Press on the Left-Earbud’s Touch Interface Button allows users to Play / Pause their media (music, podcasts, etc.), while performing a Double Press on either earbud allows users to go to the Previous Song (Left-Earbud) or Next Song (Right-Earbud).

Moreover, performing a Long Press and then holding the Right-Earbud’s Touch Button for a few seconds allows users to Decrease the Volume (Left-Earbud) or Increase the Volume (Right-Earbud).

Contrarily to that, performing a Long Press and then holding the Left-Earbud’s Touch Button for a few seconds allows users to interact with their Smartphone’s Voice Assistant (such as Siri).

Customizable Touch Controls (Settings List)

Finally, performing a quick Double Tap on the Left-Earbud’s Touch Button allows users to easily switch between the earbuds’ SurroundSense Transparency Mode and ANC Mode.

Then, specifically for Voice Calls, performing a Single Press on the Right-Earbud’s Touch Interface Button allows users to Accept an Incoming Call, while performing a Double Press on the Right Earbud lets them Reject / End a Call.

Keep in mind that all of the earbuds’ default Touch Controls Settings can be fully-customized according to your personal preferences via the App.

CONNECTIVITY

For establishing their wireless connectivity, these true wireless earbuds boast Bluetooth 5.0 Connectivity (working at a 2.4 GHz Frequency Band), which supports a maximum wireless range of 32.80 ft. (10 m).

Know that these true wireless Bluetooth earbuds feature support to several different Bluetooth Profiles, including HFP (Handsfree Profile), HSP (Headset Profile), A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVCRP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile), and SPP (Serial Port Profile), as well as support to both Bluetooth SBC Implementation & AAC Bluetooth Codes (for their data transfer).

BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE

For their battery, earch earbud comes equipped with a small, yet powerful built-in Lithium-Ion Battery that can offer you up to 8 hours of battery-life (for music-listening and for voice calls) on a full charge.

In addition, the earbuds’ dedicated wireless charging case also comes equipped with a larger and reasonably more powerful Lithium-Ion Battery that can offer you an additional 16 hours (meaning 2 extra 8 hour-charges) for the earbuds.

Ultimately, the Vista 2 can offer you a total of 24 hours of battery life (when having the earbuds’ as well as their dedicated wireless charging case both fully-charged).

To recharge the earbuds, you simply have to carefully place each earbud onto their respective slots, and properly placed over their Magnetic Charging Pins.

When recharging the earbuds, know that a quick 5-minutes charge can offer you around 1 hour of battery-life / play time.

For recharging the case’s battery, you simply have to connect its USB-C Charging port to its included USB-C Charging Cable, for which the case will then only take approximately 2 hours to go from 0% battery back to a full-charge (100% battery).

The Vista 2 Wireless Charging Case – charges either via USB-C Cable or via Qi Wireless Charging

Alternatively, since the earbuds’ wireless charging case is also rated to have Qi-Wireless Charging capabilities, you can also charged it wirelessly via any wireless charging station / pad.
