Earbud-style get high marks internationally
Swedish headphones company Jays has announced that its headphones will soon be available in the US, leading off with its latest creation, the a-Jays Four for iPhones and other smartphones. The in-ear earphone boasts a "fully" compatible keypad, high-quality microphone and tangle-free flat cord.
Among the main features of the a-Jays Four headphones is its ability to interact fully with the iPhone, including calls as well as pausing and skipping tracks. The headphone connector is in a L-shaped configuration to let it lay flatter on the top of the iPhone's surface, and comes with five different sizes of earbud to help ensure the best fit.
The headphones are rated with a frequency response of 20-21,000 Hz, an impedence of 16 Ohm at 1kHz and a sensitivity of 96dB at 1kHz. The a-Jays Four should launch at retailers this month and are expected to list for $70.
