Jaybird Vista Audio Pass-through?

    Hi Zach,

    Thank you for joining the community and for posting your query.

    Before we had this feature in previous truly wireless models such as Run and Run XT. This was because only the right buds  was used when in phone calls. For the Jaybird Vista, you can use one or both buds when on a phone call.

    You can try and lower the in-call volume for more audio transparency.

    Warm Regards,
    Jaybird Customer Experience

    I agree with Zach. This would be a really helpful feature. Can Jaybird create a Vista firmware update that will add constant audio pass-through for the whole lisening experience rather than just phone calls, such as music, videos, podcasts, radio, etc.?

    Jabra added Active Noise Cancelation with an update to their 75T. I thought, wow, if only Jaybird would do that with audio pass-through for the Vistas. Audio pass through is a huge selling point and I would love to have this feature. I also think Bruce's answer included some helpful information but didnt direclty answer Zach's question.

    Bob Goodman is right, my question wasn't really answered. I just don't really understand why audio passthrough works on calls but you can activate it for everyday use. That would be a GAME CHANGER with these earbuds as that's really the only feature I feel they are missing. It would make them so much easier to use when doing things like ordering coffee or somebody comes up to you to talk while you're wearing them.

    I second the passthrough feature.  Right now I am only getting audio on my left bud when making a skype call from my laptop.  I just picked these up and may be returning them.  It feels like ear plugs not being able to hear what is around or having to pull them out just to have a live conversation.  I have 28 more days to decide to keep or return.
