Jays d-Jays review

£69 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Jays

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The Jays d-Jays earphones are the latest product from the Swedish manufacturer to pass through our Test Centre, and they provide excellent sound at an affordable price.

Headphones vendor Jays is managing to stand out from its competitors by offering quality product after quality product. The Jays d-Jays earphones are the latest product from the Swedish manufacturer to pass through our Test Centre, and they provide excellent sound at an affordable price.

Like the a-Jays Two and t-Jays One, the d-Jays headphones have an ergonomic and slick design. They are available in black, white, sea blue or maroon red.

Like all of the Jays' range, silicone rubber sleeves are used. These earphones aren't as good as headphones with active noise-cancelling technology, but the d-jays successfully reduce background noise to an acceptable level.

Four pairs of sleeves are included with the earphones: XS, S, M and L. Other accessories included in the box are flight adaptor, carry case, stereo splitter (to listen with a friend) and an extension cord.

Audio quality is excellent: warm bass is balanced with detailed treble tones. Perhaps the only department where the earphones are let down is mid tones, but audio still satisfactory. Incredible detail is audible: sounds that weren't previously noticed in particular songs became apparent.

The Jays d-Jays earphones, much like all of the other Jays products, certainly impressed us with balanced sound and great quality build. Jays also does the little things well, such as including useful accessories in the box. If you're looking to purchase some earphones that give you some grunt but won't drain your bank account dry, the d-Jays will get the job done.

  • JAYS t-JAYS One review

    JAYS t-JAYS One

    The JAYS t-JAYS One earphones are small and light buds that employ silicone rubber sleeves to form a seal in your ear canals. This seal is responsible for creating a deep bass response that can not only be heard, but also felt.

  • Jays a-Jays Three review

    Jays a-Jays Three

    Swedish company Jays has produced a smash hit with its a-Jays Three headphones. Excellent bass response, a wealth of included accessories and an attractive design that features a flat, tangle-free cord mean they are highly recommended.

  • Jays a-Jays One review

    Jays a-Jays One

    The a-Jays One headphones are the entry-level earphones in Jays' line-up, and they offer plenty of value for money.

    Nocs NS600

    The Nocs NS600 in-ear headphones make a good first impression. But good sound quality doesn't follow.
