"Unboxing Jays' little u-Jays on-ear, my first impression was that these headphones look and feel are distinctly better than I'd expect for $120 (with free shipping on Amazon). I popped 'em on my head, they sounded really nice, so I kept listening. Checked the price again, yup, it's $120. So I listened some more. [...]
It sounds pretty refined with classical and jazz, lows are plenty deep, midrange is natural, and the highs are clear. On-ear designs can sound somewhat claustrophobic or cramped inside my noggin, but the u-Jays' soundstage was admirably spacious.
Kicking back with Dinosaur Jr.'s "Farm," the u-Jays wasted no time establishing their rock credibility. The sound was nicely balanced, not too bright or grating, but there was no shortage of detail. This headphone isn't the least bit fussy about the sound of your music, it's friendly to all genres."
"The higher tones of the mid-range and treble is where it’s at. It delivers the kind of rich and realistic tonality that few IEMs have proven to be capable of, giving credence to Jays’ claims of a true reference earphone. And while this makes acoustic instruments on mids really pop out, it is the vocals that are given a stronger presence thanks to its forward effect."
Editors Rating: 8/10
"Holding my reviewer’s breath long enough to do a pictorial closeup on the Jays’s latest headphone is no mean feat. The reason is simple: the u-Jays is, in my opinion, Jays’s best and most cohesive-sounding product. It shares the brilliant warmth of Nuforce’s HEM2, which sweetens every spin of New Order, of Iggy Pop, of Joy Division. But it follows it with fractionally more high-frequency extension and stereo detail. The smooth is balanced with the scrupulousness. In now way am I suggesting that audiophiles looking for reference quality pick it up. It’s not that phone. But where it comes to HiFi sounds, u-Jays knock it out of the park."
We're happy to introduce our first Bluetooth® headphone! u-JAYS Wireless is an addition to last year’s applauded launch of the u-JAYS Series and is expected by the end of 2016.
The new wireless headphone is, like its wired counterpart, crafted with emphasis on quality and attention to detail and complements the much appreciated qualities of its predecessor with wireless freedom.
u-JAYS Wireless connects to your device using Bluetooth® and offers a hassle-free wireless user experience with 25+ hours of playback and full-feature touch controls. The touch area allows the user to tap and swipe through their favorite songs at ease and also features a lock that secures the controls to avoid unintentional interruption.
“The market is transforming and wireless was the natural next step for us. We are happy to present u-JAYS Wireless and believe that we have created an outstanding wireless experience, and look forward to see the customer response” says CEO Rune Torbjörnsen.
u-JAYS Wireless is currently in pre-production and is expected to ship by the end of the year. Like the wired version, u-JAYS Wireless comes in combinations of black or white and silver or gold.
“The u-Jays are sleek and comfortable, they are best all-around comfy on-ear wired headphones you can get out there”
"One of the sound design intentions is that u-Jays are capable of producing higher quality audio at a lower volume, which is certainly the case. Listening to a more nuanced artist, where many layers of music can be present at one time, the range becomes apparent, and it is worth noting that with the u-Jays, on certain songs, I did notice elements in the middle range that I had not when listening before on other headphones. The sound dimensionality is very strong, and opposed to similar market headphones that seem to be obsessed with music-distracting heavy bass, u-Jays find a sweet spot in the low-middle.
The design of u-Jays may lend itself best to quiet listening, but I find them perfectly sufficient for street and subway use, they are not noise canceling, but the firm ear cushion fit allows for a warm, surrounding sound; I found this is especially evident when listening to talk podcasts, which have a tendency to sound one dimensional and flat, but with u-Jays, you feel in-the-room.
All things considered, u-Jays do a first-class job at both looking sharp and producing complex sound."

"Everything nowadays feels disposable, particularly our tiny, seemingly impossible to repair electronics. But it doesn’t have to be that way, and here to prove that are Jays’ q-Jays Earphones. [...] The earphones themselves are of course built to last with a CNC-machined and laser-cut housing that’s finalized with a tough physical vapor deposition finish, and sound quality competes with the best of them thanks to precisely tuned dual balanced armature drivers in each side, tailor-made acoustic filters to clean the sound, removable laser-cut filters, and multiple sizes of silicone or foam ear tips."

"If there’s one thing our Northern European friends have taught us, it’s that you don’t need brash style or bright colors to create a handsome pair of cans. [...] brands like Sweden’s JAYS offer refreshing alternatives, making minimalist designs and understated style look good. The latter company has been following that same less-is-more philosophy since its inception in 2006, and Jays’ new u-Jays on-ear headphones distill the stark styling to its very core.
With sleek lines, perfectly circular earpieces, and not a single hinge or wire exposed, the new u-Jays are almost audacious in their minimalism. And lest you think these might be yet another pair of bass blasters in disguise, the sound follows the same principle, making these among the brand’s most balanced headphones we’ve encountered."
