Super light style with heavy bass from Scandinavian headphone pioneer
STOCKHOLM, Sweden and UK – 30th April 2013: Swedish headphone designer and manufacturer JAYS aims its latest high-style, high-quality headphones at the style conscious audio connoisseur who prefers substance over branding.
Classic Scandinavian minimalist style combines with ultra-light Mylar plastics and advanced speaker technology to create a treat for both eyes and ears. Weighing just 59g they’re one of the lightest headphones in their class and extremely comfortable to wear but don’t be fooled – the v-JAYS are one of the hardest-hitting pairs of portable headphones you’ll ever hear.
There’s no mistaking the v-JAYS – standing out by dressing down in a world of loud and brash look-at-me headphones. Their all-black livery and understated design featuring those distinctive square ear pads is a lesson in class – style that doesn’t have to shout to get noticed.
Extended bass depth is made possible by the V-JAYS’ unique speaker drivers. Each of the two 40mm Mylar speakers is finely tuned to create a really heavy bass impact while retaining all the subtle detail needed for high-end listening. The core construction uses a powerful Neodymium magnet and a copper clad aluminium coil and impedance is as low as 24 ohms, making these speakers extremely powerful.
They’re easy to carry too, thanks to the two robust joints that allow them to be folded up for easy carrying in pocket or case. The speaker cushions can also swivel on specially designed ball joints up to an angle of 40 degrees, ensuring excellent fit whatever the shape of your head.
Gareth Gibbard, of JAYS, said: “We honestly believe that the v-JAYS are the best sub-£40 over-ear headphone on the market. Their mix of sound quality, comfort and style make them ideal for hi-fi buffs and style gurus alike. They’re compatible with virtually any mobile phone or MP3 player and offer an elegant alternative to the brash style of some popular headphone brands.”
The v-JAYS come with two spare ear pads and a 70cm extension cable with gold-plated iPhone-compatible stereo mini plug. They’re on sale now for £39.99.
