Hey, I'm Justin Yu with CNET.com and these are the Jays A-Jays Four stereo earphones. At $70, they're an affordable replacement for the stock headphones that came with your iOS device and there's also a few upgrades that make it worth the price as well so let's check them out. So there's are a lot of headphones out there to choose from and it seems like the trend nowadays is for companies to offer a handful of bright colored choices that turn the purchase into a fashion choice, but the A-Jays Four have a subtle design that matches your iPhone 4, and doesn't attract much attention. Instead, they focused more on utility. The headphone cord, you can see here, is flat and it's coated in rubber so that makes it nearly impossible to tangle. That's really convenient when you're pulling it in and out of your pocket or your purse. You also get a remote control about 6 inches down from the earbud here. It has 3 buttons that you can use to control your music, you can skip and pause tracks on an iPhone 4 and it works on a 3G and 3GS iPhone as well, but you won't be able to manipulate the volume with those phones. As usual, the back of the remote has a small pinhole for the microphone that isolates your voice when you're outside in loud areas and making a call. That said, we do have a few complaints about the earbud covers. They're not supposed to be shoved all the way in your ears like in-ear canal headphones, but we still did struggle to find a comfortable fit even with the five earbud covers Jays includes in the hard case here. The earbuds themselves aren't very wide and they sit almost flush with your outer ear flange, which got uncomfortable for us after just half an hour of listening. As with all headphones, these buds may fit differently in your ears so you should see if you can try them before you drop the cash. Once you have them in, though, you will be satisfied with their sound quality. They're a big improvement from the stock Apple earbuds but their fidelity isn't quite on par with our favorite headphones. Those are the Klipsch S4is. On the other hand, those will run you double the price so we're happy with the Jays at this $70 range. That said, you can read more about these headphones in our full review on CNET.com and you can check out its competition as well, but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu, these are the Jays A-Jays Four stereo earphones and that sounds good to me.
The Jays A-Jays Three earphones look good and sound impressive for the price, but not all genres of music perform equally, and comfort will no doubt be a problem for some.
The Diddybeats earphones offer a great balance of style, durability, features, and sound quality, making them a good option for anyone looking for nice in-ear headphones with some character.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W290 is an excellent, well-balanced compact camera.
The Altec Lansing InAir 5000 produces well-balanced sound in an attractive package that will blow the roof off your room...if you can afford it.
If you can get a tight seal -- and that's a big if -- the British speaker company's new $200 deliver very clean, well-balanced sound.
The Sleek Audio SA6 earphones deliver above-average sound quality and an unprecedented modular design, but there are better earphones available in this price range.
The 2006 Acura TSX is a well-balanced, well-appointed car. Its four-cylinder engine is surprisingly stout, and cabin electronics are in line with Acura's high-tech focus, although the carmaker could do with outsourcing its audio systems.
The company brings better sound and some design tweaks to version 2.0 of its affordable wireless earphones.
The Candy Comfort Earphones are a fun replacement for stock earbuds that offer a reasonable upgrade in fit and comfort, but don't expect good sound quality.
The MEElectronics M6 earphones are a great value for bass-addicts, thanks to solid sound quality, a rugged design, and plenty of features.
Jays A-Jays Four Review
The good: The Jays A-Jays Four earphones have an executive, durable design, and come with a tangle-free flat cord and unobtrusive three-button iPhone remote.
