Jays launches c-JAYS
Headphone manufacturer Jays has launched the c-JAYS, its first external headphones with numerous adapters to make them compatible with a variety of popular consumer electronics. The headphones can otherwise be customized to users' tastes with three, differently-sized included foam ear cushions. The headphones feature an Elastic Multi Layer (EML), 1.6-inch (40mm) speaker diaphragm for good sound isolation with a Neodymium magnet at their core. The c-JAYS' sensitivity is rated at 99 dB at 1kHz, while frequency response ranges from 20Hz to 20kHz.
The c-JAYS are also meant to be portable, and feature a folding glass fiber-reinforced nylon construction with extendable arms and two different types of joints. A carrying case is also included. For sound delivery that is claimed to be 100 percent free of cross crystal distortions, Jays used single crystal copper wires and 3mm TPE coatings for the headphone cable. The standard cable is nearly 24 inches (60cm) long, with a near 28-inch (70cm) long extension provided as well. Jays also includes gold-plated adapter plugs that fit the original iPhone and new 3G version, as well as a large 6.3mm jack for use with home theater audio receivers.
The c-JAYS, available in black or white, are now available and priced at the equivalent of nearly $120 in the UK. [via Pocket-lint]
