Review: v-Jays headphones
The v-Jays might be small and light but another word that can be used to describe them is powerful.
These headphones weight just 59g – one of the lightest in this category – and have an ergonomic design that will make you forget you’re even wearing them.
The v-Jays also have soft foam earpads and a thin adjustable headband so they can fit anyone.
There are also two folding joints to so users can easily fold them up and carry them in their picket when they’re not listening to them.
Each of the 40mm Mylar speakers are mounted on ball joints so they will always be comfortable and be positioned at the correct angle to deliver incredible audio output.
We were in shock the first time we piped some tunes through the v-Jays from our iPhone.
These small, light and affordable headphones had no right to sound this good but they did.
The bass response blew us away but wasn’t so overpowering as to detract from the detail in the other frequencies and prevent us from picking up all the subtleties of the music.
The only downside of the v-Jays was the fact that the music we listened to at a higher volume could easily be heard by others in a quiet room. But, hey, that’s their problem, right?
A mic and remote control on the cable would have been nice but that would also mean an incoming call could intrude on the amazing audio quality the v-Jays provide.
The v-Jays are priced at just $79.95 and are available now from Bing Lee, Harvey Norman, Wicked Digital and Headphonic.
If you’re in the market for an affordable pair of light, portable headphones that provide a sound that’s both surprising and delightful then the v-Jays are perfect for you.
Five stars (out of five)
