Jays U-Jays Headphones (black)
What we think in the Inner Sanctum:
*** NOTE - Price reduction from Jays! The u-JAYS are now only $119 (previously $200). A good value has turned into a crazy-good deal! ***
The u-JAYS are among the coolest looking headphones we have ever seen. And we should point out that their ultra-modern design aesthetic is matched by their comfort and brilliant sound.
Perfect for being out on-the-go, u-JAYS are a minimalist masterpiece - sleek lines, light weight and a 3-button remote and microphone for taking calls. We love the matte black Darth Vader vibe, too.
The sound is rich and detailed, with a clarity in the treble that is very rare at this price point. Overall, with its new lower price, the U-JAYS are a flat-out bargain.

The acoustic system
u-JAYS is designed to let the earcups and ear cushions work together as an acoustic system. In addition to the custom developed 40 mm dynamic speaker with Japanese Silk-diaphragm, vent holes covered with acoustic tuning filters are evenly distributed 360° around the speaker. This feature optimizes the air-flow through the system, resulting in greatly improved details and a deeper bass response.
Exchangeable ear-cushions in stunning metal finishes
The viscoelastic ear cushions conform to the shape of your ears and remain comfortable over time. Together with the spring-steel headband, they create a tight and fitting seal that improves sound quality and limits sound leakage. Being exchangeable, you can replace them over time. Designed with a soft Korean leather-like material and a striking touch of metal.
Full feature remotes
