    u-JAYS On-ear headphones

    "Packing a great dynamic sound with a midrange that doesn’t cut corners [...] these headphones offer a sound that can adapt to just about any genre. For $199, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better-sounding on-ear model. Even over-ear options would skew one direction or another, and you’d miss out on the whole package offered by these headphones."

    Thank your Carroll and MajorHifi for reviewing our u-JAYS On-ear headphones!

  • JAYS Pop-up at Make Musik Sthlm 2016

    2016-06-13

    JAYS Pop-up at Nytorget, Stockholm

    For the 7th year running, musicians take over the streets of Södermalm in Stockholm during one day in June for Make Musik Sthlm. What makes the festival unique is that most concerts take place on the streets, squares and parks of the city – making the music available to all.

    JAYS were invited to take part of the festivities and set up a pop-up store in the center of activity. Wanting to always be close to and encourage creating music we were happy to also run a contest offering whoever posted the most engaging Instagram photo of a band during the festival a pair of u-JAYS headphones, and for the band in the photo a full day in #StudiobyJAYS.

    See you next year!

  • #PassYourJAYS - Brisa Roché

    2016-06-09

    Brisa Roche

    Brisa Roché was born in Arcata, California. Having a rural and somewhat secluded childhood she developed an assertive and unique personality. Her music career started as she moved to Paris and frequented the bars to play jazz piano. In 2005, signed to Blue Note, she released her debut album “The Chase” earning her a hasty comparison to Björk.

    Dissatisfied with her debut, Brisa decided not only to leave her previous label but also to shift from jazz to the folk rock genre – almost like something out of San Fransisco in ’67. To celebrate her latest release “Invisible 1”, made between California and Paris, we are happy to include Brisa in #PassYourJAYS.

    When we met her at Les Femmes s’en Mêlent music festival earlier this year and asked who she wanted to pass on a pair of u-JAYS to, this was her response:

    “To my manager! He is always there for me and he has given me headphones before. Also, I know that he doesn’t have any at the moment and that he loves the brand JAYS.”

    Check out the new album here.

  • Versatility With the Right Kind of Kick

    Technology Pep u-JAYS On-ear headphones

    "u-JAYS excel in keeping the discipline wherein many other streetwear headphones fail to do and that is to have a taut bass. It has the punch. It has the power. However, these don't overpower the other areas of the sound spectrum. Therefore, ti doesn't infect higher frequencies which would otherwise make the overall sound to be cluttered"

    Thanks Technology Pep for reviewing the u-JAYS!

  • #PassYourJAYS - Helluvah

    2016-05-19

    Helluvah

    Born in 1982 in Paris, Camille Warmé goes on the adventure Helluvah via a demo of 5 songs recorded at the end of 2005. After two albums well received and one EP noticed, Helluvah is back in March 2015 with her new album Long Distance Runners, released at Dead Bees Records. Passed by folk accents then by a second album more rock, Helluvah took a turn more electro-pop, without sacrificing the raw and nerve guitars.

    "Helluvah expands her universe by creating post industrial atmospheres that her singular voice manages to make mysterious and bewitching." - Télérama

    "Catchy, heady, warm or even hot" - Tsugi

    "Camille Warmé directly ran through the third gear without to clutch, and however she controls a hypnotic and dancing vehicle out of control." - Indiemusic

    Camille is more than welcome to our #PassYourJAYS concept, passing on a pair of u-JAYS On-ear headphones to her friend since 17 years, Magali, who ”courageously accompanied me on stage for the first time today, especially for Record Store Day!"

    Check out the video from their performance at our Paris Office for Record Store Day, and follow #PassYourJAYS in social media for more tributes and love of music.

  • u-Jays Review: An exercise in minimalism

    2016-05-16

    u-JAYS On-ear headphones

    "Tuned for laid-back listening sessions - Sonically, the u-Jays are clean and present crisp sound ideally tuned for longer listening sessions. If we had to force an analogy for better understanding, the u-Jays’ sound signature can be compared to the taste of a slow-cooked smoked piece of meat; you need a fair bit of patience to appreciate its quality. In a nutshell, the apparent lack of attack on the first few listens is soon taken over by the comfort of the u-Jays’ laid-back sound."

    Thank you Gear by MySmartprice for reviewing the u-JAYS On-ear headphones.
