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.
The biggest concern (is also the selling point) is the flat tangle-free cable. My biggest concern with them is the white noise it generates. The surface area really has a toll on the amount of white noise.
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.
The flat cable is very worrying for me, especially how it is terminated. The plug just seems like it is just waiting to fail because it just looks, and feels, very cheap and fragile.
Microphonics is another major issue.
Summary: The reason why i bought these earphones was just the special offer I found about 2 years ago.
They were sell in bundle with a 16GB pendrive for about 45€, so I paid them less than 30€ or something close.
For that price there can't be any remorse.
The box is just splendid, inside you can find a strange circular small case for the eraphones (actually not that handly), airplane adapter and a splitter, built in great quality.
Pros: Aestethics, nice flat cable, fast and nice basses, huge step forward from a bundle earphone, survived to a go in the washing-machine, package.
Excerpt: I really liked the flat cable design they literally NEVER got tangled. The cord was a bit too long for me, though, and kept getting snagged on things and ripping the headphones out of my ears-- but this could be just the way I use them (in a coat or trouser pocket). There's no clip but it...
Summary: I have owned these headphones for 6 months now and they have broken 3 times. sure jays have given me a new pair each time but should they really break that much? apart from that the headphones are great.
"Great sound quality, but the design does not work in the real world"
6 December 2010
Summary: Had these earphones for a few months now. While the sound quality is outstanding, the practical use is very disappointing. The 'no tangles' ribbon cable does reduce tangles, however, this is at a massive cost to real world application. The increased surface area of the cable creates two problems when using the earphones while walking, or moving in any way. 1) The cable transfers amplified bump sounds up into your ear with every tiny movement.
Pros: The sound is amazing.
Cons: The ribbon cable may stop some tangles, but the cable bump noise and the earphone being constantly pulled of my ear makes the ribbon cable more annoying than any tangle.
Excerpt: в целом не плохие наушники за свою цену, но не покидает желание поменять на что-то лучшее в плане звучания.
Pros: - дизайн - цена (брал за ~1600р) - совместимость с iPhone - в целом не плохое плотное звучание, особенно хороши для тяжелой музыки (и не только)
Cons: - сильно заваленная верхняя середина - частотная характеристика заметно изменяется при регулировке громкости (с уменьшением громкости исчезают высокие частоты) - при шевелении провода слышны помехи - качество звука при телефонном разговоре уступает оригинальным наущникам iPhone 4s
Conclusion: Kjempe gode propper til den prisen, er veldig fornøyd! Mye ekstrautstyr i esken, ulike størrelser på propper, dobbel/enkel aux og oppbevaringsboks. Bra lyd, men kan bli litt forstyrrelser i lyden dersom det er mye bevegelse i ledning, f.eks ved løping. Men her får du veldig mye for pengene!
