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.
Swedish headphone maker Jays has updated its a-Jays One earphones. The new One+ model maintains the same basic design, but adds a single-button inline remote and microphone that enables users to switch between music and phone calls when the earphones are connected to smartphones. The remote/mic combo is compatible with a wide range of platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry.
Swedish headphone maker Jays is already introducing a new product for the just-announced iPhone 4. The a-JAYS Four iPhone is based on the company's existing a-JAYS line-up, and the a-JAYS Three specifically. It has three built-in buttons with a grip placed inline with the cord. The remote will adjust volume, answer and end calls, navigate through audio tracks and record voice memos.
Sweden-based earphone maker Jays has introduced a new range of earbuds, with thet-JAYS. The three models, called simply One, Two and Three differ by their sound character and included accessories. All share the same 8-gram earphone that contains a dynamic speaker with a 10mm Neodymium element and a detachable 2- or 4.3-foot Kevlar cord.
Swedish headphone and portable media player accessories maker Jays on Thursday introduced its latest product, the s-JAYS in-ear headphones. The headphones are the company's first to use SIREN armature technology, which is said to offer a wider acoustic range than before, with precise highs, more pronounced mids and deeper bass. In addition to the new design, the headphones sport the company's sound isolating system to provide clear sound at any volume level.
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.

Cirrus creates Lightning-headphone dev kit
Apple supplier Cirrus Logic has introduced a MFi-compliant new development kit for companies interested in using Cirrus' chips to create Lightning-based headphones, which -- regardless of whether rumors about Apple dropping the analog headphone jack in its iPhone this fall -- can offer advantages to music-loving iOS device users. The kit mentions some of the advantages of an all-digital headset or headphone connector, including higher-bitrate support, a more customizable experience, and support for power and data transfer into headphone hardware. Several companies already make Lightning headphones, and Apple has supported the concept since June 2014. http://bit.ly/29giiZj

Apple employees testing wheelchair features
New features included in the forthcoming watchOS 3 are being tested by Apple retail store employees, including a new activity-tracking feature that has been designed with wheelchair users in mind. The move is slightly unusual in that, while retail employees have previously been used to test pre-release versions of OS X and iOS, this marks the first time they've been included in the otherwise developer-only watchOS betas. The company is said to have gone to great lengths to modify the activity tracker for wheelchair users, including changing the "time to stand" notification to "time to roll" and including two wheelchair-centric workout apps. http://bit.ly/2955JDa
