JayBird Tiger Eyes earbuds photos

The JayBird Tiger Eyes earbuds are a good option for active iPod owners with a hankering for bass.

JayBird first made a name for itself as a Bluetooth company, but it recently introduced two wired models. Of the two new sets, the Tiger Eyes Earbuds ($89) are the slightly less expensive and more stylish model.

The Tiger Eyes earbuds are fairly standard in design, with the exception of the separate inline mic and volume modules. The former is integrated into the right Y-cable and includes iPod remote functionality: clicking once plays or pauses the track, twice skips forward, and three times skips back.

The volume control resides at the Y junction and consists of an oblong black plastic piece with a silver slider for adjusting levels.

The cable, which measures 43.3 inches, is a thin, plastic-coated number that doesn't seem terribly durable and is prone to tangles, though JayBird includes a wrap accessory in the package to help with this.

The package also contains a nice carrying case for keeping your earphones protected while not in use.

The earpieces of the Tiger Eyes earbuds are impressively small and are decked out with sleek silver accents.

We found the earbuds quite comfortable, thanks to the small size and the vast array of eartips included in the package. JayBird offers two sets of soft black sleeves and five sets of clear silicone sleeves, including one double-flanged pair and one triple-flanged.

On the sound quality front, the JayBird Tiger Eyes earbuds perform admirably, though they don't offer the crisp clarity of the similarly priced Klipsch Image S4. Still, the earphones perform quite respectably overall, with rich and enveloping mids that won't leave you wanting more.
