```... I wish to sort a list of {{x,y}...} values into uneven bins using
the x values

Hi.  Not sure, but here's one general method.

A general function that divides you x values based on size.  (I'll use
Log10, but you can use your function here.).

f[x_]:=Log10[x]//Floor

Some Random data of length 2,3,& 4
I suggest Sorting the list here as it makes the code later a little
easier.

t=RandomInteger[{1,2000},{10,2}]//Sort;
t//MatrixForm
(18	592
49	1441
67	672
670	713
1318	1827
1417	1487
1437	586
1594	40
1600	1908
1786	1564
)

GatherBy[t,f[First[#]]&]

{
{{18,592},{49,1441},{67,672}},
{{670,713}},
{{1318,1827},{1417,1487},{1437,586},{1594,40},{1600,1908},{1786,1564}}
}

As you see, the bins are based on digit lengths of 2, 3 or 4.
You'll have to think of your own function here.
