TaoTronics TT-BH042 vs Jaybird X2 (2015)
The TaoTronics TT-BH042 makes for a good, if unremarkable, Canal Earphone for people with a $30 budget.
The Jaybird X2 (2015), however, is merely mediocre at its $38 asking price, when compared to similarly priced products, and won't satisfy the needs of most people.
In either case, we suggest that you first take a look at some other options at the $30 and $40 price points before committing to one of these - it's likely that you'll be able to find some better alternatives.
If you're still interested in learning more about the TaoTronics TT-BH042 and Jaybird X2 (2015), however, we wrote a summary of what we could find about them:
