The Jaybird Vista 2 earbuds are a midrange-priced option designed for active users, excelling in comfort, durability, and with a secure fit thanks to silicone fins, making them ideal for exercise. Their very good build quality, sweatproof and dustproof certification, and active noise canceling make them versatile for various environments, including air travel. While their sound quality is rated as very good overall, they may not be the best for gaming or TV due to poor scores in those categories. These earbuds also offer convenience features such as an app equalizer and controls customization, ear detection, 6 hours of battery life with 24 additional hours from the case, and wireless charging.

Ratings by Category

Exercise:
5.0
This score evaluates the product when used for exercise and physical activity. It mainly takes into account comfort, whether or not the products are sweatproof and how secure are the earbuds or headphones while wearing them. We also consider products with wireless capabilities to be more suitable for this particular scenario
Podcasts & Audiobooks:
4.7
This score evaluates the product when used solely to listen to podcasts or audiobooks. It takes into account sound quality and sound signature, to be able to keep voices clear and intelligible. It also considers battery life, when available, and comfort.
Air Travel:
4.5
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
Calls:
4.4
This evaluates the product when used solely to make and receive calls. It takes into account how well the products are able to clearly reproduce the human voice, the quality of the integrated microphones and the battery life, when available, to be able to use them for longer sessions or conferences.
Portability:
4.4
The Portability score is based on an overall assessment that includes volume and maximum dimension of the product (and case, if relevant), and its weight. Special features like foldability for headphones are also taken into account.
Battery Life:
4.3
The Battery Life rating is based on hours of typical, actual usage.
Music:
3.4
The Jaybird Vista 2 earbuds offer a very good overall sound quality, yet they have a fair score in soundstage and imaging which indicates they may not provide as wide or as immersive a spatial audio experience as some other options. The closed enclosure type helps isolate sound and improve bass, but can also compromise the sense of openness and positional audio cues compared to open-back models.

Sound Guys

Chase Bernath | September 2022
"Compared to the original Vista, the Jaybird Vista 2 adds some key features including ANC and SurroundSense to control how much environmental noise you hear. If you're an athlete and are looking for rugged earbuds with tons of customization options, the Jaybird Vista 2 makes for a good option—but only if you are able to achieve a proper fit from the proprietary ear tips."
