We were born in two of the most inspiring outdoor locations in the world. With a background on the coast of Australia and a home base in Park City, Utah, we grew up fighting for waves at Noosa before spending years in search of the most rewarding lines across the Wasatch Range.
AS PASSIONATE RUNNERS, BIKERS, CLIMBERS, SURFERS, & SNOWBOARDERS
we’re driven to perfect our craft by exploring new territory and by eliminating distractions in our gear that slow us down. The end result is finding our limits and pushing them, while inspiring others to get outside and do the same thing.
We knew all too well the pain of having wires catch on trees, stick to our bodies from sweat, or cut out from getting wet. Music was there to push our performance, but having a long, loose wire connected to a device was holding us back. We wanted to feel as free as possible outdoors, and our goal became to create headphones that we could forget we were wearing. With peak performance as our inspiration, we set out to make the first secure-fitting, outdoor-tested wireless earbuds with incredible sound. So in 2006, when every headphone company was content with making wired headphones, we released the first ever athlete driven and designed wireless buds.
We made one product that cut the cord and kept innovating from there. Working with professional runners helped us design a seamless fit that anyone could tailor to the shape of their ear and actually forget they were wearing headphones. We improved our sweat-proofing test to make sure our buds could survive high-intensity training, unexpected weather, and even an occasional load in the wash. And then we tackled sound.
The Jaybird App begin with the simple idea that sound should be a personal experience. As we spent time tweaking our speakers for bigger sound, not all of us agreed on which elements should play a bigger role. Some of us wanted more bass to get our adrenaline pumping on race day, and others wanted richer vocals in a podcast to help block out the pain from knocking off mile after mile. In the end, we settled on the option to allow for both scenarios. It came down to our belief that sound control should be in the hands of the listener and that the experience of listening to motivating audio goes deeper than just adjusting volume. So we created the Jaybird App to be an immersive experience that you create and use as a personal training tool. With the app, you can customize your EQ levels for any activity, save your sound preset to your buds, and share your preset to help others find the ideal sound that fuels them towards victory.
Once we saw how much users liked hearing presets from other athletes, we decided to up the ante by integrating Spotify for the sharing and rating of motivating playlists. The Jaybird App continues to evolve and most recently has incorporated a Find My Buds feature, allowing you to track the last place your buds were paired, just in case you misplace them.
