Jays q-Jays

 

The q-Jays are a resurrected, new and improved version of what are in my mind one of the best pairs of headphones of the last decade. You may not have heard of the original Jays q-Jays, but they were quite special.

Jays q-JAYS

 

Hugely effective, the q-Jays sound good and weigh nothing. Only the premium price sounds a false note

Tiny; full-throated sound; effective noise cancellation

Cheaper rivals

q-JAYS Dual Micro Armature Earphones review

 

A pair of earphones that redefine what's meant by punching above your weight

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

Expensive

Great sound with a broad range of music, but prohibitively expensive

Jays q-Jays review

 

The Jays q-Jays are excellent in-ear headphones that have sound quality equal to other high end established headphone brands. If you are interested in shelling out more than a hundred pounds on high quality portable in-ear headphones, these should be...

Jays q-JAYS Review

 

The q-JAYS headphones offer superb sound in a compact case.

Well built, tiny, excellent sound

Bass lacks a little depth, supplied case is very small

You'll be impressed with the sound quality and comfort offered by this tiny set of headphones. They're lightweight, so it's easy to fit inside even the smallest ear, and while they may not be the top choice for bassy playback, the quality of the...

Jays q-Jays in-ear headphones

 

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 Review

 

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 has really created a set of unique earphones in the q-Jays. They feel almost hand-crafted for a specific set of user, which is fine. But at a price tag close to $200 we feel that there are some better models to choose from for the...

Jays q-JAYS Reference In-Ear Monitors Reviewed

 

Ever hear of Jays earphones? Me neither. But after meeting with the company at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest and trying out its new reference in-ear monitors, the q-JAYS (starting at $279), I decided that we should get better acquainted....

The q-JAYS are very well made ; The fit of the q-JAYS can be very comfortable with a little bit of effort ; The q-JAYS is easy to drive with a smartphone, which can't be said of every IEM in its class

It can be difficult to tell the right earphone from the left during initial assembly ; The cable is moderately microphonic ; The black, plastic travel case is easy to lose, due to its color and size

If you are looking for a well-designed, well-made, fine-sounding pair of universal fit in-ear monitors and your budget is under $300, the q-JAYS are a very attractive purchasing option.
