JAYS launches microphone, earbuds for Walkman phones

JAYS Mic and Earbuds

JAYS said late yesterday that it has unveiled two new audio accessories to help owners of Sony-Ericsson's Walkman phone better enjoy their music without sacrificing quality. The m-JAYS music adapter (pictured, right) is designed to let any standard 3.5mm earbud or headphone set plug into the proprietary connectors of most Sony-Ericsson music-capable cellphones while retaining the ability to place calls. Using an answer button, a microphone built into the adapter can handle outbound voice without demanding that users lift the cellphone to their head, the company says.

Accordingly, JAYS has also revealed the j-JAYS (left), a set of in-canal earbuds meant to properly enhance the sound from cellphones using the m-JAYS adapter as well as any other portable music player. The earpieces have an exceptionally strong level of bass but use 9mm drivers that maintain the quality of high- and mid-range frequencies, according to the company's claims. Both the j-JAYS and m-JAYS will be available in black or white; the former is expected to ship in December for $49, while the latter will follow in January for $29. Versions of the m-JAYS for other phone manufacturers will follow soon afterwards.
