  • #PassYourJAYS - Vitaphone

    2016-05-04

    Vitaphone

    From psychedelic lullaby to hysterical guitar chords, Vitaphone plays free and creative rock’n’roll. Every track questions the identity of this multi-faceted band, causing disco balls to fall off the ceiling and melt into boiling broth. A supernatural voice and flexible sonic material draw halos of green light around Vitaphone.

    After performning at JAYS Paris office for Record Store Day 2016 we just had to include them in #PassYourJAYS. On the question who Vincent of Vitaphone wanted to pass his u-JAYS On-ear headphones to - he responded:

    Vincent (Vitaphone) : "Hey Alice...are you happy with your headphone?"
    Alice (his partner) : "Well...not really!"
    Vincent : "So to Alice ! Why? Because we play in the band together! Because we play music together! And it's important that she listens music with professional headphone."

    Check out the video from their performance at JAYS Paris Office below - and follow #PassYourJAYS in social media for more tributes and shared love of music!

    "Quiet design - Stockholm

    Earphones and headphones are such small pieces of kit that you'd be forgiven for missing something as rarefied as Swedish design pedigree. Of course, the point of good design is not noticing it's there - and that's where JAYS, founded in Stockholm in 2006, comes in. New to the stable are the q-JAYS earphones and u-JAYS headphones that positively love anything you throw at them, as well as giving you a fresh skinny on your old favourites. Detail, depth and precision added to beautiful engineering mean a handsome new benchmark for your lugholes."

  • #PassYourJAYS - Ji Nilsson

    2016-04-29

    Swedish producer, songwriter and singer Ji Nilsson has collaborated with a range of artists during the last couple of years including Marlene, Up To No Good, Hjältar Mot Sin Vilja and Min Stora Sorg. Her first EP “Blue is the saddest color” came out in November and we’re proud to include her in our #PassYourJAYS initiative.

    “I would like to give my u-JAYS to music video makers Karolina Bengtsson and Joanna Nordahl aka BoomBossGäris whom I have had the honor to work with the last two years. Sound is a very important part of their job so it feels great to be able to give a good pair of headphones to them!”

  • q-JAYS x TrustedReviews

    2016-04-25

    q-JAYS

    "What’s so special about the q-Jays is that [...] the sense of high-resolution audio reaches down into the mid-range rather than just using bright treble to make the earphones seem conspicuously insightful. In this sense at least, these earphones can compete with much more expensive pairs [...]

    Having those mids nailed make vocals and instruments like guitars sound all the more realistic. This is what audio fidelity is really about. The mid-range isn't pushed forwards, which would make vocals and other middy parts in the arrangement seem close to your ears, as it's the treble that has that extra presence. As such, the q-Jays sound profile is slight and delicate, but not to the extent it seems flat-out thin."

    Thank you TrustedReviews for reviewing the q-JAYS Reference earphones!

  • #PassYourJAYS - Nisj

    2016-04-22

    Nils Svennem Lundberg

    Swedish producer Nisj originates from Umeå in the north of Sweden. Since his move to Stockholm some 10 years ago he has produced music with names like Silvana Imam, Michel Dida and many more.

    Earlier this year he was rewarded a Swedish Grammy as producer of the year. We’re thrilled to include Nisj as part of the #PassYourJAYS initiative.

    “I wish to give a pair of u-JAYS headphones to my friend, Karin Gyllenklev. We - together with Jesper Rönndahl and Katrin Kasström - made science radio together for almost 5 years. Karin is a very sharp person who succeeds in conveying dense knowledge in an easygoing manner. Where Karin lives, she is also surrounded by lot of woods, fields, small mountains and lakes. Ideal for long walks with good listening.”

    - Nisj, producer

    q-JAYS

    "Mids and highs on this headphone are wonderfully articulate and velvety smooth. Everything sounds exactly as it should.  The depth and separation to music takes on a whole new character – something I’ve never seen in earphones at this price."

    Thank you MajorHifi for reviewing the q-JAYS!

  • #PassYourJAYS - Cléa Vincent

    2016-04-13

    Cléa Vincent

    Cléa Vincent is a young Parisian capable of anything, like the release of her two electro albums in 2014. Electronic music is in her blood from growing up in the late 90's and the 2000's with a curiosity about the French repertoire from France Gall to Daho through Elli & Jacno. Naive, fresh and deeply addictive.

    As part of #PassYourJAYS Cléa would like to pass a pair of u-JAYS On-ear headphones to "Lucie, the singer from Bon Voyage Organization. She represents the musician singer and dancer wife; natural and sensual as I like."

  • #PassYourJAYS - Aldous Harding

    2016-04-08

    #PassYourJAYS - Aldous Harding - "Hunter" from JAYS Headphones on Vimeo.

    Hailing from New Zealand’s Southern port town of Lyttelton, Aldous Harding has received attention and accolades from some of the most illustrious corners of the music industry. Disarming in its desolate imagery and stark instrumentation, Aldous’ music deals with the raw materials of life: death, birth, grief and love. There are few happy endings, but the power is in how Harding enters into battle; with a dancer’s grace and a boxer’s stance.

    We met Aldous at Les Femmes S’en Mêlent music festival in Paris earlier this year and got the opportunity to include her in the #PassYourJAYS concept by passing a pair of u-JAYS On-ear headphones to her manager, Olivia, who ”deserves to hear the beats right.”

  • JAYS q-JAYS 2 – Marvel of Engineering

    2016-04-01

    q-JAYS

    "JAYS have managed to make the dual driver BA sexy again, and that’s no small feat on its own. Ignoring the driver-number game or the price war from China, I think many will agree that the new q-JAYS is perhaps one of the most refined and well-engineered IEM in a total package that $400 can buy."

    Thank you Inearmatters for reviewing the q-JAYS Reference earphones!
