Jaybird lets you fly high with Spotify: run Spotify, run

Are you listening? Jaybird has partnered with Spotify so its updated Jaybird App sends you running in the right musical direction.

Jaybird’s fancy flight of love for running and music is no flight of fancy.

Indeed, so deep is Jaybird’s love of running and music that the latest update to its Jaybird MySound App sends that message loud and clear.

So, what are we talking about, specifically?

Well, this new addition to the Jaybird MySound App, now renamed the Jaybird App is a partnership with Spotify that “allows you to explore playlists from other runners and share your own running playlists.”

Now, as any Jaybird App fan would already know, the app already lets you customise your tunes, giving you the option of, say, adding extra bass or making those highs clearer.

If you’re not familiar, the Jaybird App allows you to “alter the actual sound of your music on their headphones, so by adjusting the lows, mids, and highs with the app, you can create custom sound profiles that play your music in a way that sounds best to you".

Jaybird reports thousands of its users have created “custom sound profiles and shared them with other athletes through the app.”

The company states it loves “giving you your music, your way,” with its app having been “amazing in connecting athletes across the world who share a passion for pushing themselves backed by the power of their music".

As you would expect, Jaybird has been testing ways to make the app even better and interactive for a while now, so they’re psyched to tell you about the app’s latest update with a feature they’ve added, called Running Music.

Spotify is now integrated, as noted above, so that you can not only share your custom sound profile but you can create, share, and rate playlists through the app!

As Jaybird explains, if you’re looking for new music to pump up your run, look no further.

So, now that Jaybird MySound is now the Jaybird App, Spotify playlists have been integrated into the app to give users the ability to explore, listen to, create, share, and rate playlists within the Jaybird community.

Users can browse playlists from several genres created by Jaybird staff, athletes, and fans.

The playlists are broken down into a few sections: Jaybird, Staff Picks, Popular, Newest, and Trending. This allows you to easily find new jams to pump up your next run.

In short (or shorts, if you’re running a lot), it means that “your beloved buds and your running experience just got better.”

And what could be better than that?

What’s better is that this update delivers “extra musical motivation but also extra convenience.”

When you’re running hard, who needs the hassle of switching between apps? There’s no need to do so with this new update, and no more risk of tripping while looking at your phone.

So what does the new Jaybird App deliver?

The company says it is "just one sweet app that puts you in the zone and keeps you running".

What this means is, if you haven’t already done so, run to the new app here for iOS, and here for Android, and download this totally free update now.

And if you haven’t already set yourself up with the amazing Jaybird X3 buds, you’ll find them available in Blackout (Black), Sparta (White), Alpha (Green) and Roadrash (Red), so run, Spotify, run to your closest JB Hi-Fi store and pick them up for $199.95.
