Jays v-Jays

 

Jays' v-Jays headphones offer quality audio performance at moderate volumes in a simple, lightweight design that's affordable.

Solid overall audio performance, with crisp highs and a rich, tempered bass response. Simple, well-implemented design. Comfortable fit

Very minor distortion occurs at top volumes on tracks with seriously deep bass. No inline remote or microphone for mobile devices. No carrying pouch

is comfortable, delivers deep bass without too much boosting, and with no distortion, even at top volumes. At $60, however, the v-Jays represent a solid, no-frills option for music lovers craving a crisp and clear audio performance without giving up on...

JAYS v-JAYS (Black)

 

Swedish headphone maker Jays isn't exactly a newcomer to the market, but the company's products had yet to make their way to the CNET Reviews desk until quite recently. The first pair to earn the privilege is a sleek on-ear model with a...

The Jays V-Jays Headphones offer a stylish design that is compact and lightweight; they stay securely on the head; and they offer clear and fairly balanced audio.

The Jays V-Jays Headphones don't seem terribly durable for the price and may not be comfortable for all users. The foam earpads are flimsy, and the headphones suffer from noticeable sound leakage. Bass response is lacking.

For those who can't stand the thought of putting earbuds into their ears, the Jays V-Jays Headphones offer a nice alternative in the ultraportable headphone space.

Featherweight Headphones Hit With Heavyweight Bass

 

Want a great pair of headphones for not much cash? The no frills V-Jays deliver on sounds for a price tag that's only double digits.

Surprisingly deep bass. Capable of ear-thrashing loud volumes. Lighter than a bag of helium. Somewhat portable

Headphones don't fold up very compactly. A little dull on higher frequencies

Jays v-Jays Headphones

 

From the same icy lands that bring us flat-packed particle-board furniture, savory meatballs, and chewy candy fish, a company by the name of Jays set up shop in 2006 producing premium headphones. (We're talking about Sweden, by the way.) Though Jays...

Lightweight ; comfortable fit; clean ; punchy bass; sharp highs and midrange; sturdy build quality

Nearly worthless without included headphone extension; no slider to adjust left/right cord split

Ditch the wannabe earmuffs and grab a pair of these powerful welterweight champs.

v-Jays Heavy Bass Speaker Headphones Review

 

Today I am looking at a set of headphones from v-Jays called the Heavy Bass Speaker Headphones. If you are like me and want bass in your music and your movies these headphones might be perfect for you. If you want to know if the headphones actually...

Bass, Bass, Bass ; Very comfortable ; Folds for storage

No remote for track control

If you aren't a fan of ear buds, want deep bass, good looks, and comfort in a set of headphones, the v-Jays Heavy Bass Speaker Headphones are a winner.

Ultra Portable Shootout: PX100, PX200, PortaPro, K404, V-Jays, Tracks, Oldskool, and HD238

 

When I first discovered IEMs, ultra-portable headphones such as the PX100 suddenly has lost its meaning and purpose. Over the years, however, I started to find a fun factor on portable headphones that I don't quite

I find the build quality of the HD238 to be a bit short than even the PX100/200 models. Somehow, the housing feels hollow and fragile, and the entire build doesn't inspire confidence for rough handling on the outdoors. This is one of the biggest...

“Bass is very strong and clear, Nemo,” he said. “Much more than I've heard before. These must be expensive headphones.” Not especially, I told him. They are priced under “Bass is very strong and clear, Nemo,” he said. “Much more than I00.

Jays v-JAYS Headphones Review

 

v-JAYS by Jays are the most sleekest and most simple headphones I've seen and used by far. The v-JAYS are on-ear headphones and are extremely lightweight and portable. The v-JAYS also fold up by collapsing each side except for the headband making them...

The v-JAYS sound really great. The sound quality is amazing and very clear. The v-JAYS pack some nice tight and very noticeable bass. Nothing seems to distort or muffle out any of the sounds which is fantastic. The v-JAYS have fantastic crisp highs and...

Review: JAYS v-JAYS Heavy Duty Bass Headphones

 

v-JAYS are similar to c-JAYS in styling, featuring an old-fashioned plastic expandable headband with a light layer of foam on its inside, extending plastic arms, and square, pivoting on-ear speakers that have been covered with a thicker foam. Unlike...

As much as we enjoy JAYS' industrial designs, and have watched with interest as the company played with on-ear products, v-JAYS strikes us as only a decent product-a pair of nice-looking on-ear headphones that we wouldn't use instead of Apple's...

Reviews: JAYS v-JAYS II Headphones

 

As a brief primer on the v-JAYS family, it suffices to say that Swedish designers JAYS came up with the original version as a lightweight, foldable headphone with an unusually slender headband and flexible, foam-padded square earpieces—an...

Back in 2009, v-JAYS merited a C+ rating: it was a nice idea with less than thrilling execution for too steep of a price. Today, v-JAYS II scores higher primarily because it’s been right-priced for what it offers: an inexpensive but nice-looking,...
