I’m regularly on the lookout for impressive earphones in the market. This doesn’t mean that I’m always scouring those that cost an arm and a leg.
Good (or even great sounding) earphones need not be expensive… you just have to know where to find them. Or you can just follow my blog and check out my recommendations. That’ll make things easier for you.
That being said, I found quite a gem just recently… it’s Jays entry-level headphones – the a-JAYS One.
The a-JAYS One comes in a really cool (and quite large) plastic case. The case makes for great storage at home to keep your headphones protected but you might find it a tad difficult and bulky to carry along.
One thing you’ll immediately notice about the a-JAYS One is that instead of the customary round type cables found in other headphones, this model sports 115cms of flat black cable. I particularly love this feature since I tend to tangle my cables every so often. It’s sometimes too tedious to meticulously coil up your headphones, wouldn’t you agree? The flat cable of the a-JAYS One makes it practically tangle-free.
You’ll also notice that inside the package of the a-JAYS One are sets of different-sized silicone sleeves ensuring you that no matter how big or small your ear may be, you’re guaranteed a perfect fit.
Performance of a-JAYS One
You’re probably wondering how well the a-JAYS One performs considering that this is merely an entry-level model. I guarantee you’ll be as pleasantly surprised as I was when you use ’em. Unlike most earphones in the same price range, this pair doesn’t sound cheap at all. You might think that the flat cables of the a-JAYS One is all there is to it… but once you place these babies in your ear, that’s when you’ll realize how well these headphones perform.
The a-JAYS One headphones according to Jays are tuned for bass frequencies and sports an 8.6mm dynamic speaker with a frequency range of 20-18,000Hz.
True enough, these headphones sound rich and particularly heavier on the low register regardless of the type of music that’s played back. The a-JAYS One produces an overall punchy sound which I actually enjoyed a whole lot. These earphones are incredibly comfortable once you find the right size ear buds. Also, a very good amount of noise is cancelled once you put these on. I actually couldn’t hear my wife calling out to me when I tried the a-JAYS One for the first time.
If you’re looking for a very good pair of earphones that will go easy on your wallet, it’s quite impossible to make a mistake with the a-JAYS One. You’ll also realize how unbelievably easy it is to pocket these earphones without having to worry about the cables getting tangled up. I actually kinda wish that all headphones would switch to flat cables instead.
The a-JAYS One is great for everyday use. It’s easy to bring along, good-looking and performs well above par.
In a nutshell, the only thing flat about the a-JAYS One is its cable… not the sound.
