I have been using the lightweight v-JAYS headphones for two weeks now and they turned out to be a really great pair of headphones. Come inside for our review of the v-JAYS.
The v-JAYS come in a package that is just a bit bigger than the headphones itself and there isn’t anything more than an extra pair of earpads, the headphones, a 70 cm extension chord, and short paper instructions in several languages inside the box. But that is exactly what you need so there’s nothing negative about that.
The build quality is quite sturdy and it feels like these headphones easily will last a couple of years without breaking. The cable is also quite thick and all cable extensions is gold plated. So even though they might look like the earphones you get on an airplane to wath the in-air flick the v-JAYS feel more robust and durable than the cheaper counterparts.
When you aren’t using the headphones, you can fold them up as in the photo above. They aren’t ultra compact but at least they feel somewhat protected when you fold them.
I have been listening to lots of different types of music with the v-JAYS and even though I think they are best used for modern music with lots of bass, you still can enjoy Beethoven and Bach with these headphones. I used the equalizer quite a lot though to get the exact sound that I wanted.
The v-JAYS deliver rich and open sound, with lots of punchy bass and smooth sound all over the frequency range. You can turn up the volume really loud and it still delivers a great sound experience. A lot more than you probably expect by just looking at them, as they look a bit like cheap airplane headphones.
Everything with the v-JAYS ain’t positive though, one of the problems with the headphones is that the sound doesn’t only reach the person who wears the headphones. A lot of sound leaks away and that might annoy your colleagues if you are using them in an open landscape. This is of course a problem with most open headphones and apart from that I can really recommend the v-JAYS. They are a great catch, and I don’t say that just because I’m a Swede (Jays is a Swedish brand you know). Highly recommended. You can get them in a shop near you for around $100.
