Fitbit Flyer Review will give you an insight into all the specific features of these headphones. The Fitbit Flyer are sports Bluetooth headphones that are designed for the gym and other sports activities. Are these headphones really worth the investment? Read the detailed review to find out!
Design and Build Quality
The design of these headphones are pretty sleek and personally, I like the metallic touch in the design. They look expensive and the one in gold and white is my personal favorite. The headphones look like they are high-end premium headphones and are made up of sturdy, good quality material.
The headphones have slightly larger earbuds than the usual Jaybird headphones and even comes with fin tips in order to provide a better fit while working out. They are pretty comfortable and come with an amazing overall design and build quality, however, something that bothered me was the design of the earbuds, even though they looked great but it did not feel good on the ear- more on this later in the review.
The sound quality on these headphones is pretty good, you can say that they are as good as the Jaybird X3 headphones. The sound is pretty crisp and if you want you could manually change the audio settings to get the sound quality of your type.
The headphones come with two sound settings which are Signature or Power Boost. In the Power Boost sound settings, the enhanced wave technology gives you a stereo-style experience which is very rare in headphones that come within the lower price range.
You can easily take up calls on these headphones, however, the headphones shut down after 20 minutes of inactivity which is something you might want to consider. If you are just wearing your headphones so that you can be notified when you receive the call then this headphone might cause you some problem.
The headphones come with different ear tip and fin tip sizes so that you can find the combination that fits your ear perfectly. I wish I could say that these headphones are really comfortable but for someone with small ears like mine, they are pretty huge.
I guess this should not be a problem for someone tall with a good built but for a person who is petite, you might find them a little uncomfortable. The earbuds are slightly heavier and it is not that easy to go on a run with them as they constantly keep falling out of the ear.
I was annoyed after using them for 20 minutes while on a run, so I don’t think they are suitable for me. They did well in the gym while weight training as there were not many vigorous movements involved in that.
The headphones are sweatproof and not completely waterproof, so if you plan on taking these headphones with you for swimming then you might want to reconsider that thought. The headphones can withstand a few splashes of water without any serious damage.
A few people have had some problems with the headphones as they get damaged easily but they have received their replacement from the company under warranty. The headphones should last you for a year easily with some minimum maintenance and in the case you get a defective piece, you can ask for a replacement.
The battery lasts for 6 hours which is an average battery life for a sports Bluetooth headphone. If you are looking for a headphone that would give you a longer battery life then you might want to consider the Jaybird X3 headphones as they give an 8-hour battery life which helps you use them a bit longer for listening music even after the workout.
The battery life on these headphones is average and I really hoped them to be a bit better. If you are just using them for workouts then they are completely fine but if you want something that would last with you even after your workouts then you might want to consider other headphones with a longer battery life like the Jaybird X3 or teh JLAB Audio Epic 2.
The Fitbit Flyer headphones are pretty much really useful when it comes to working out and have a premium look as well but sadly, apart from these two features, there was nothing that great about this headphone. There are plenty other headphones out there with the same price point that offer a lot more.
So, in conclusion, the price/feature balance of these headphones aren’t as good as they should be and you can instead invest in headphones that have slightly longer battery life along with better comfort. If you are still interested in trying these headphones then check them out on Amazon.
