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? They’re good enough that, in terms of sound quality, style, fit, finish, and the accessories they include, they could in may ways pass for models selling for two or even three times their actual...
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. On one hand this offers better S/N ratio (signal to noise ratio) in busy environments, but make make them unsuitable in situations on the move where it is better to keep alert to external cues for personal safety reasons, like tube (subway) travel.
a-Jays THREE earphones in review – got bass on my mind
25 August 2010
Excerpt: “Back when Cube was rollin’ with Lorenzo” – stolen from Dr. Dre’s What’s the Difference , is innocuous; it betrays nothing of Dre’s ego. But American rap’s pride is why after years, I keep coming back to it. And though this is a headphone review , I think that a bit of good ol’ fashioned American pride applies tastily. In 2010, the Swedish headphone guru, Jays , redesigned itself, shirking cuteness in favour of big business, of pride.
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. The packaging and included accessories that come with the a-Jays are top notch, and more than you would typically get from a set of earbuds in this price range. The a-Jays Three come highly recommended.
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: Swedish company Jays has produced a smash hit with its a-Jays Three headphones. Excellent bass response, a wealth of included accessories and an attractive design that features a flat, tangle-free cord mean they are highly recommended.
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. The packaging and range of included accessories are borderline premium, and at the $89.95 price point this struck a pang of doubt in my worried head.
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
