Jays q-Jays

 

Very small size, comfortable fit ; Should fit most ears ; Plenty of accessories ; Good clarity

Decent amount of cord feedback ; Fragile cord ; Poor bass ; Overly bright highs at times ; Expensive

Jays has really created a set of unique earphones in the q-Jays that feel almost hand-crafted for a specific set of user.

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...

Overall the q-Jays will be the very best in-ears for the price surpassing even the more pricier headphones out there. Never underestimate the small nature of the q_jays as they pack a massive punch delivering life-like sound quality with all the right...

JAYS q-JAYS Dual Armature In-Ear Earphones Review

 

We present to you q-JAYS – the world's smallest in-ear headphones. Though small, the q-JAYS pack huge audiophile-grade sound. JAYS, a Swedish born headphone company, has managed to squeeze dual micro armatures and sound isolating technology into these...

Small, full of rich detail, natural sounding, noise cancelling, includes slew of accessories

Light on bass, short cord, cord extensions weighs down buds, carrying case is too small

q-JAYS are without a doubt an impressive set of earbuds. They are the smallest ear buds out there and yet manage to squeeze two micro-armatures in each bud and block out most ambient noise. The audio is very clear and extremely detailed. Both the black...

Q-jays features Today we are going to take a look at  a new set of earphones from Jays. Jays have been a leading earphone manufacturer for a few years now in Sweden and have started to also get a stand on markets all over the world. Todays review will...

Superb sound ; Comfortable ; Small ; Good accessories

Price ; Thin cord

I like these earphones, I have found nothing to complain about really except that they are a bit pricey and mainstream users wont pay 180$ for earphones.

Review: Jays q-JAYS Earphones

 

Clockwise from Bottom Left: Single-Driver Shure SE110 and V-moda Vibe Duo; Double-Driver Jays q-JAYS and Shure SE420 Following up on our earlier reviews of Shure's lowest-end model SE110 and a competing alternative, v-moda's Vibe Duo with...

So why the sharp difference in our ratings? The answers are simple: pricing and comfort. Except in the treble department, we'd call q-JAYS a slightly superior earphone to the ER-4P-it's smaller and has better bass at a lower price, unless you shop...

JAYS q-JAYS Review

 

JAYS, the company formerly known as "Jens of Sweden", lately shifted their focus from manufacturing well-designed audio players to equally classy looking in ear phones. After their relatively inexpensive j-JAYS and d-JAYS models they now launched their...

Great clarity and detail, balanced sound response, refined across the whole frequency spectrum, Decent bass for a dual armature IEM, High impedance, low sensitivity - prevents background hiss on most portable audio players, Very small, stealthy, and...

Very microphonic cables (unless worn over the ears), rather unfavorable cable lengths, Somewhat difficult to remove from the ear canals due to their tiny size, They can sound a bit too bright and fatiguing on some players (without proper EQing),...

Calling the q-JAYS the "Volvo of IEMs" would probably sound rude. Yes, they're Swedish, they're well built, and they perform nicely. However, while Volvo's design is debatable, the q-JAYS certainly are very pleasing to the eye, even to the most...

Jays q-Jays review: These in-ear headphones have excellent sound quality

Tiny size, excellent sound quality and detail, wide variety of included eartips

We don't like the cord length, changing the eartips is fiddly work

If you've got a bit of money to spend on some high quality in-ear headphones, we'd definitely consider the Jays q-Jays to be a strong contender. They're on par with high-end performers from audio specialists like Ultimate Ears and have excellent sound...

Jays q-JAYS Dual Micro Armature Earphones

 

n the box are accessories for about every occasion you could think of

Great sound ; Lightweight ; Comfortable ; Ambient sound isolating ; Large accessory package

Expensive

Using our normal range of soundfiles (Mahler, Lee Perry and some live recordings), all played through our iPod, we got very good results across the spectrum. If only the price could drop by 50 quid or so, our wallets would come more readily out of hiding

Q-Jays Dual Micro Earphones review

 

There are earphones then there are serious earphones and the Q-Jay Dual Micro certainly fall into the latter category. Before you even get to use the earphones you'll be impressed with what's on offer. The packaging is great, as you'll find a wide...

Great sound, plenty of extras

Expensive, lightweight cable

The packaging is excellent and has the sound quality to match but you’ll have to pay for the privilege

Show your lugs some love with these sound-isolating comfort kings – just make sure you've got your credit card ready…

The q-Jays sound good and weigh nothing - only the premium price sounds a bum note
