Excerpt: Every once in a while I encounter products that do so much for so little that their value quotient is off the charts; the a-JAYS Three in-ear headphones ($59.99) from the Swedish firm Jays is just such a product. How good are these stylish little ‘phones in an absolute sense?
Summary: I bought these Jays while looking for a good entry-level IEM to upgrade from the ibuds.
These IEMs, to my ears, sounded V-shaped. Elevated bass with aggressive treble.
I could not stand listening to some tracks with these on because of the sibilance.
Summary: These are considered entry level IEM's. So I had them for over a month now to let their sound signature burn in. From what I've noticed, these IEM's are geared more towards the high's. The bass is lacking and often times drowned out by the excess high's.
Summary: The box is really nice, inside you can find a circular small case for the eraphones (actually not that handly), airplane adapter and a splitter.
The earphones looks good and sober. I think they are well built too, 2 years on the go without any sign of backdown.
Excerpt: The a-JAYS Three bundle includes 5 pairs of soft silicone tip sleeves designed to envelop the earpiece and prevent ingress of exterior ambient noise. They claim this technology reduces leakage by up to 40dB.
a-Jays THREE earphones in review – got bass on my mind
25 August 2010
Conclusion: If you’ve enjoyed your Sennheiser CX series earphones but want to jump up to something with more style and better highs, the a-Jays is a great choice. If you are looking for replacement to the horrendous iBuds, look no further.
Pros: good, meaty bass, good extension in both lows and highs, excellent packaging and accessories, to die for looks, non-tangling cable
Cons: average build quality, fit can be a bugger, case, while nice, isn’t overly practical
Conclusion: The a-Jays Three are amazing headphones for the price. Sound quality, bass and build quality are all right where they need to be to put these ear buds at the top of the pack in their price range.
Pros: Solid build quality, Excellent imaging and sound stage, Nice tight, deep bass, Flat cord, Lots of accessories
Cons: Highs could be brighter, Carrying case is cool, but awkward
Excerpt: The first thing that hit me when I unpacked the a-JAYS Three earphones was just how brilliant an overall package I held in my hands. Lets be clear: when you buy a pair of these a-JAYS Three, you’re buying a portable music solution, not just a pair of headphones.
Pros: Fully comprehensive portable audio solution; great sound; good value
Cons: Won’t suit everyone’s listening preferences; flat cabling means cables hang awkwardly from your ears
