Jays c-Jays Headphones Review

Introduction


Jays is the name of a Swedish headphone manufacturer that has evolved a lot over the past year. Their rapidly expanding line of products now also features their first set of supra-aural headphones. These new headphones are dubbed c-Jays and are the first headphones on the market to feature a SGSCC type cable, which is free of crystal dislocations. This should yield a better sound quality due to the fact that there is no cross-crystal distortion. Besides this special cable, the c-Jays also feature a customizable sound signature because you can change the ear pads. At the moment there are three types of pads made from different thicknesses and density foam. Albeit not new or revolutionary this is quite an effective way to alter sonic characteristics, Grado has done this for years.

The Package


The c-Jays ship in a plastic box. You can clearly tell if the unit has been mangled before opening it which is a good thing.


Jays has really gone out of their way to deliver the c-Jays with a decent bundle. If you do not feel sure about how to change pads you can always look in the manual.


You get a thorough bundle with each set of c-Jays. Besides the usual airline adapters you also get a 1/8" to 1/4" converter and a carrying pouch. The foam pads are made in three different designs that alter the sound signature of the headphones to a certain extent, these will be thoroughly examined later on in the review. There is also an extender cable in the bundle this is neat because the cable that is soldered to the ear cups is relatively short.
