Jaybird Vista review: True wireless headphones worth checking out

Jaybird got off to a bumpy start in the world of true wireless — that’s “AirPods-style headphones” — when it released its Run headphones back in October 2017. That model, updated to the Run XT in 2019, was well designed but had some small performance issues that held it back from being great. But its successor, the Jaybird Vista (cue the Windows Vista jokes), includes design and performance improvements that make it the product I’d hoped the Run would be.

At $180 (£160, AU$280), it’s a little more expensive than it should be, but it was one of the better true wireless headphones to hit the market in 2019. It will appeal to those looking for a more discreet set of totally wireless sports headphones that offers full waterproofing.

The Jaybird Vista will eventually come in three color options (black is currently available).

Both chambers of Congress and the White House still support sending a new direct payment to those who meet the qualifications and they publicly acknowledge the need for more funding to addresses multiple economic issues.

President Donald Trump said Friday that the White House is looking into ways to provide stimulus funding outside of a congressional bill, such as utilizing money allocated to emergency pandemic programs.

Negotiations to reach a deal have remained stagnant for almost a month despite bipartisan calls for compromise on the size and scope of the package. Republicans are expected to present a much smaller relief bill, worth $500 billion, after the Senate reconvenes next week, but it isn’t expected to pass the House of Representatives. A later bill that includes a check is also a possibility, and that should affect the timeline even
