JAYS updates a-JAYS Five with all-new design in three versions
Swedish audio maker JAYS has released the latest version of its popular a-JAYS Five series earphones. Unlike the previous model that came in one edition, the new lineup comes in three discrete models, each individually tailored to iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. Each of the three models features its own three-button remote that supports all the remote functionality of each type of smartphone running each OS.
Users can use the remotes to answer/hang up calls, play/pause music and videos, skip songs, change volume up/down, and carry out voice actions. The new earphones also feature an all-new design that feature a one-piece design. According to JAYS, the angled form factor is designed to improve wearer comfort by using a soft outer body that makes them flexible, reducing cable stress.
The trademark flat, tangle-free cables have also been redesigned to be more robust. JAYS has also developed a new driver for the a-JAYS Five that it says significantly improves the audio quality over the previous version. The new a-JAYS Five for iOS, Android and Windows each retail for $100 and are available in white or black.
