a-JAYS One+ Earphones Review

I wouldn’t call myself a sound buff, but every now and then a manufacturer ships me a speaker or a set of headphones to test out. Most of the time they don’t impress me, but I have to say the a-JAYS One+ earphones blew me away for the money. In an age where high end earphones/headphones can cost well over $100.00, these seem well worth the money at $30.00.

The packaging is really cool as them come in a black plastic elliptical-like container. In fact you might say it’s a little bit of an overkill because I’m sure it isn’t cheap.

Inside you will find the earphones and four additional silicone sleeves to properly fit your ear. The cable is flat which makes it a lot harder to tangle and it includes a one-button remote for various functions.

Each earphone has a 8.6mm speaker with a frequency response of 20Hz-18KHz. The a-JAYS One+ was pleasure in my ears. Even at higher volumes, there was basically no distortion. Other specs include: Sensitivity: 95dB @ 1kHz and Impedance: 16 Ohm @ 1kHz. Of course, nothing is perfect, so if there is a minor complaint, it would be bass was a little lacking, but you really had to listen hard to notice.

JAYS also offers an app for your Android phone. Its called JAYS Headset Control which works in conjunction with the one-button remote. The app lets you program it the way you want. For example, pressing it once will start/stop your music, but you can also program various functions according to certain key press patterns. For example, you can set it skip to the next song if you tap the button three times.

The one-bottom remote can perform any of the below functions:

Music Options

  • Play/Pause
  • Next Track/Previous Track
  • Volume Up/Down
  • Launch App

Call Options

  • Answer/End Call
  • Decline/Mute Call

I highly recommend the a-JAYS One+ earphones, and if you are a major audio buff, you can check out their other products. This is actually an entry level pair, but they deliver an incredible performance. They also offer the a-JAYS Two and the a-JAYS Three. Hit the source links below to find out more.

    Yeah you probably want to mention that the model you are testing with a mic and controls are not the a-Jays One, but instead the A-Jays One+. And they are $50 not $30 dollars. I have been trying to give you guys second changes cause i like the android news but your stories are almost always inaccurate.

      Yes, you are right.
      But you forgot to mention that the only difference between a-Jays One and a-Jays One+ is this remote. Music output/quality is the same in both of them.
      So they sound very good for 30 bucks. (if you don’t care about the remote).
