Pros I've tried many many sets of headphones. My main complaint that ALL headphones is that they all tangle really fast. The tangle-free cable on the A-Jays works great. The sound quality is superior and they are so comfy in your ears. They dont fall out.
Cons They take couple hours of listening to break in, otherwise no cons really.
After they are broken in which took me a day of listening to music, the bass is amazing. For the price, it can easily compare to $200 headsets. To me they are better than the Beats Tour and Diddy Beats. If your coming from Sennheisers or Skullcandys, you can immediately see the difference in sound quality after putting these in your ears. Out the package, there is a hiss at lower volume music. The bass is amazing but not overpowering. the mids are well pronounced. the highs could be better, but thats really no complaint
The earbuds themselves are extremely light. The flat cord isn't heavy and doesnt drag it down when you are running or working out. Depending on the type of earplug you use, it will not fall out your ears. You can hardly tell you're wearing them. The rubberized, pasta-like cord, feels like it will last a really long time. From the second you get the earphones, the entire package just feels expensive and top quality.
one word.. sexy. and thats an objective opinion.
I dont know what was wrong with the cnet reviewer. these are simply fantastic earphones for such a low price. you wont be disappointed at all
Pros LOUD BASS, they're not kidding when they said these are bass-earphones, which may be your thing. Sound is clear, the mids are slightly muffled compared to the Klipsch S4s, and the highs are very clear.
Oh and did I mention I LOVE the flat cables?
Cons LOUD BASS, which are a bit too loud for me, the bass is so overpowering it subdues the mids and competes with the high notes, not the most fine-tuned listening experience.
Apparently the a-Jays Three is the LEAST bass-heavy of the range, be warned.
Summary Overall very nice earphones for the price. When I brought the Klipsch S4 earphones I got used to its excellently-tuned experience, so now the flaws in the a-Jays seem quite apparent.
However these are still one of the best earphones in the price range, might even be better than some more expensive options. The flat cables were the things that brought me - they are durable and tangle-free, saving myself 5 seconds of tantrum whenever I wish to use these. Having said that, the connection between the cable and the jack/earplugs are NOT reinforced, and reviews have claimed these are easy to break, still, better than those thin, flimsy stringy cables.
There are microphonics when the cable is rubbed against your clothes, but hardly noticeable during music. The earbuds offer secure and comfortable fit (to most), and can reduce up to 40dB of background noise, perfect for commuters, not so much for joggers, as the microphonics and the slightly heavier cable may not be suitable.
Sleek design, LOVE the flat cable, very good sound and well worth recommending.
"Noisy when walking"on by BOSCO44
Pros Great design. Sound is better then expected for the price. love the cords.
Cons you cant move with these. They make an unbearable noise from the cords moving around.
Summary Basically i will never use them - i dont get how ive only seen one other complaint about the noise you get when walking around with these plugs!
Pros Nice price.
Great sound (when you are not moving).
Cons When walking around (don't try to run) the movements from the cable goes in to the earplugs making a "glunk" sound interrupting the music.
Almost impossible to get the xxs sleeves on. I got one on and gave up.
Doesn't work with all generations of Ipods.
Summary Great design, good price, lots of awards etc. etc. but in practical it fails. Must say, don't buy. I'm very disappointed.
Pros bass soo loud.. but not overleak. the trebble was controlled just nicely. I used to plays several genre of song such as rock, pop and rap. it just suit right.. A very good earphone for bass lover!
Cons so far, i don't see any yet.
Summary overall.. this is a very nice earphone especially to those who love the bass very much but don't like the overleaks of bass. this earphone just suit right for youalso the tangle free cable also is just nice! love it!
