Two speakers in each side
Engineered like a set of reference loudspeaker monitors, q-JAYS feature dual speakers built into each side, one for low frequencies and one for midrange and highs. Each speaker renders its dedicated frequency spectrum relaxed and naturally reproducing perfectly accurate tones. Thanks to its custom drivers and a new crossover filter, you will enjoy a seamless frequency response without irregularities often found in many larger multiple driver systems.
Exchangeable cables for longer life
q-JAYS are the world’s smallest earphones made with exchangeable cables. Despite its small form factor, they have managed to implement reliable, custom-made threaded connectors in each housing. With options for dedicated cable modules for Audio Only (without remote box), iOS, Windows or Android, choose the solution that best fits your needs and get to enjoy a pair of earphones that last longer.
Solid stainless steel for durability
Bigger isn’t always better. q-JAYS housing is designed to be remarkably small and sturdy. The durable and precisely manufactured fine-tolerance stainless steel housing brings out every last detail of the drivers with absolute accuracy. A matte proprietary scratch-resistant anti-fingerprint coating gives the q-JAYS their charcoal black look.
The Whole Nine Yards (from the back of the box)
Uncompromising excellence. That is the distilled essence of the q-JAYS reference series.
In setting out to create the pair of high-performance reference earphones that can reproduce the most authentic and detailed sound possible, our team had to thoroughly evaluate every last design and engineering detail, selecting only the optimal materials best-suited for each part. Built with a relentless focus on precise audio reproduction, combined with the application of state-of-the-art development techniques, the q-JAYS reference series delivers first-rate, highly-defined acoustics that puts it in a class of its own.
The acoustics is without question the most remarkable feature in the q-JAYS. Brimming with rich detail and nuances, it is well-balanced, flat, and neutral. The sound is reproduced as it is intended to sound: with minimal coloration. Its incredible spatial representation and high transient speed also helps to recreate a sense of space around and between instruments, all of which come together to play a part in its agility and precision in pace, rhythm, and timing
Under the surface you will notice the consistent dedication to precision that contributes to the q-JAYS' extraordinary output. Our custom dual balanced armature drivers are, to date, one of the most advanced ever made: built with a woofer driver, a midrange/tweeter driver, and a brand new crossover-filter which ensures a seamless, low-frequency blend that practically makes disruptive irregularities or phase shifts undetectable. In addition, a tailor-made acoustic filter washes off any sharp sibilance while the balanced vent port keeps the bass tight, rapid and deep.
Its curved one-piece body has been constructed from high-strength metal injection-molded stainless steel for structural integrity, followed with a vigorous polishing and sandblasting treatment. The process is then completed with the proprietary Physical Vapor Deposition - one of the industry's toughest coating techniques which binds with the stainless steel on the molecular level to create a high-strength and corrosion-resistant surface, characterized by its signature solid matte-black look.
The sound tube features almost transparent acoustic properties, made possible by machining a removable and washable protective filter from solid aluminum, which also serves to block out dust and debris efficiently. This involves a high-precision laser-cutting technique to cut out 55 miniature holes within a 2 mm diameter.
To further enhance its acoustic quality, q-JAYS' module system has been assembled around JAYS' precision-machined, threaded, gold-plated SSMCX connectors.
Finally, to increase both its lifespan and versatility, JAYS also provides a range of exchangeable cables and various cable modules compatible with iOS, Windows, and Android (iWA) so that enjoying exceptional sound on the go is possible no matter which smartphone you use.
Meticulously engineered and simplistically designed with absolutely zero compromise on both performance and form-factor. This is what JAYS mean by uncompromising excellence.
