Jays d-JAYS Black
For listeners wanting good ear canal headphones without selling a kidney, upstart Swedish manufacturer Jays Acoustics have introduced an affordable line of Jays in-ear earphones. The D-Jays sonic signature has a clean bottom-end and a well-extended albeit slightly forward treble range response. For the fussy listener, we could say the mid-range might have used better detail presence but at this nice price who wants to get all fussy? Overall, the D-Jays have impressed the geeky HeadRoom crew by providing great sound quality, personalized fit options, and good noise-blocking all at a consumer-friendly price.
The D-Jays use a mid-profile, unique-looking micro armature construction technology based on a classic Harry Egerton design patent from 1918. They come available in black and white color schemes and are outfitted with 4 differently-sized silicon rubber eartip sleeves (Extra Small/ Small/ Medium/ Large) which manage a pretty solid degree of ambient noise attenuation. As always, the tighter the fit the better the ambient noise seal and the better the bass response will be. The D-Jays efficient 40 ohms impedance assures good performance from virtually any audio source with no dedicated headphone amp required. The D-Jays accessories kit is nicely furnished and contains the aforementioned eartip sleeves, 2 detachable / joinable mini-cables (which together allow for about a 4.5 foot cable length), 4 replacement earpiece filters, and an adjustable 'Y-cord' slider. The cord can be worn either looping behind the ear or straight down as preferred and is terminated to a 1/8" [3.5mm] gold-plated stereo mini-plug. We have encountered that the D-Jays require significantly more user on-board filter replacement compared to any other earphone brand. We HIGHLY recommend purchasing an additional set of filters with any Jays earphones -- you'll need them. Extra eartip sleeves and additional detachable cables are also sold separately under our 'Headphone Accessories' link. D-Jays earphones are also available in white color.
