Jays a-Jays Five In-Ear Headphones Review

Good design and good sound for a good price is hard to beat. And for many years that very ideology was kept alive by Jays – the sophisticated Swedish headphone maker known for its attention to detail, as well as one of the best three-button remote with a high-performance microphone to ever be designed and integrated into an in-ear headset. Recently Jays introduced the a-Jays Five, the company's new flagship in-ear headphones with a promise to one-up the a-Jays Four by doings things better. But most importantly, the a-Jays Five are Jays most considerate in-ear headphones yet. No longer will iOS users be the only ones to enjoy the greatness of Jays' unique, full-featured inline remote and mic. Whether you're an iOS, Android or Windows user, the a-Jays Five are available in three individual models designed not only to aesthetically compliment each of the three ecosystems, but fully support them natively.

We have never seen such dedication from other brands as much as Jays puts effort into engineering three entirely different experiences in order to make everyone happy. It's groundbreaking. Should the a-Jays Five be your next iOS, Android or Windows in-ear headphones with enriched integrated headset functionality? Read our in-depth review to find out if the a-Jays Five are the right pair for you.

Jays a-Jays One+ Plus In-Ear Headphones Review

If you own an iPhone (or any smartphone, really), chances are you use it to some degree to listen to music, whether that be your music stored on the device, or through apps like Pandora, Rdio, etc. And those of us who listen to a lot of music generally like it to sound as good as possible. The problem with that is that most people never upgrade their earphones/headphones past the freebies that are included with their device. Well, to give music lovers an entry level upgrade option, Jays recently introduced their new a-Jays One+ earphones. How do they perform? Our friends over at MobileFun sent us a pair to take a look at. Jump past the break to find out more!

JAYS c-Jays Headphones Review

JAYS is in no need of any introduction. We simply love them and everyone else seems to agree that JAYS are one of the top hitters when it comes down to extremely great sounding, affordable headphones. We've had the chance to review quite a few of JAYS' offerings and gave each and everyone very high marks and even our Editors' Choice award. This time we've got our hands on the c-Jays headphones, a very unique pair to say the least. These are portable, foldable and customizable headphones that will make audiophiles pay attention to what they have to offer. The c-Jays might look harmless, but deep inside you might find weapons of mass destruction hidden underneath that naive looking exterior. More after the break!

JAYS q-Jays In-Ear Headphones Review

After having listened to JAYS' a-Jays Four and t-Jays Three and absolutely loving both, my expectations out of JAYS' top of the line q-Jays in-ear headphones are higher than ever and I couldn't be more thrilled to review them. The q-Jays are audiophile grade in-ears with a price to match at $179. Despite their extremely small form, the q-Jays fit inside dual micro armature drivers making them the world's smallest pair of in-ears with dual armatures. Can such small in-ears really deliver audiophile grade sound quality without compromising anything else? Get past the break to find out in the full review!

Comply Foam Tips for In-Ear Earphones

Those stock silicone tips that come with your earphones might not fit you so well creating a bad seal and because of that you are not getting the most out of your earphones sound wise. Silicone tips can block outside noise if you have a good seal but if you want to get the best noise isolation and block out the most noise possible, you need to go with the foam route. Comply will get you where you want to be with their Foam Tips. Catch the full review right after the break.

The a-Jays Four are the fourth addition to the a-Jays line of in-ears that are designed to match the iPhone 4's industrial design and feature a full-feature inline three-button remote.

JAYS t-Jays Three In-Ear Earphones 

We've got yet another pair of high end earphones from JAYS for you, this time we have the t-Jays Three. As small as the t-Jays Three are, they out perform on-ear headphones like the Beats By Dre Studios, Philips The Stretch and more. The t-Jays Three might be small but they produce studio quality sound that is mostly found in on-ear headphones with larger drivers. It's pretty unbelievable how JAYS perfected their line of in-ears. I thought it would hard to beat the a-Jays Three, and here come a long the t-Jays Three with their amazing professional sound quality and 10mm TCD dynamic driver. Read on for the full review after the break!

JAYS a-JAYS Three In-Ear Earphones

Iv'e reviewed and listened to many high quality earphones and headphones in the past to be able to notice a good sounding pair. I did not think that something so small can produce such an amazing sound, until I got my hands on the a-JAYS Three by JAYS. The a-JAYS Three pack such an incredible sound, all in an ultra compact design. Right out of the box these sounded just amazing. I really got blown away to how close they come compared to a pair of full fledged over-ear headphones. JAYS really do an amazing job with every single product they make so far. The a-JAYS Three are absolutely stunningly crystal clear but also, they have incredible punchy bass. The 8.6mm TCD neodymium driver produces such high quality bass that makes you feel your music. The sound is in no way distorted or muddy on any kind of music genre. The a-JAYS Three have a very rich warm sound that most people like including myself. They are very well balanced throughout the sound spectrum. 

The design and built quality is just as good as how they sound. The a-JAYS Three have a very nice soft touch coating surrounding the hosing with a glossy plastic cap. The slim profile makes for a very comfortable listening for long periods of time. Once in your ear, the a-JAYS Three are very unnoticeable so if you like to lay down while listening to your music, it won't be a problem for you. I really love the flat tangle-free cord which is the best flat quality cord Iv'e came across. The only thing I can say that did not impress me was the audio jack's design, which looks like a cheap piece of rubber without any design really. It will fit most devices due to it's slim profile. The a-JAYS Three come with a pretty useless hard storage case that is very slim. I had a hard time placing and closing this case with the a-JAYS Three neatly tucked inside. 

Depending on which silicone tip you choose to fit your ears, I was able to get a decent amount of sound isolation from outside noises. The a-JAYS Three are so lightweight that I would forget I even have them in my ear, which made me focus much more on my music than having to worry about them falling out and discomfort. I would highly recommend the a-JAYS Three for any music genre. The price, sound and build quality makes these a perfect pair of in-ears. Price $60.
