Jays a-Jays One headphones
An inexpensive pair of Jays headphones that produce great sound
- Great audio quality, tangle-free cable, low price
- Slight noise leak at high volumes
The a-Jays One earphones are a great buy: they are comfortable and they have good audio quality and an appealing price.
Price$ 49.95 (AUD)
The a-Jays One headphones are the entry-level earphones in Jays' line-up, and they offer plenty of value for money. They sound great, have an easy-to-manage cord and they are supplied with five pairs of different-sized sleeves to make sure they fit into your ears.
The headphones look like a standard pair of earphones, except for the use of a flat cable rather than a thin and easy to tangle wire. They also have an affordable price tag: $49.95. But don't let that fool you; when it comes to sound quality, the modest little a-Jays pack the punch of a more expensive pair of headphones.
The a-Jays One are designed to plug in to your ear canals and much like the t-Jays One headphones, you need to make sure that you use the correct sleeve size for your ears, otherwise they might feel uncomfortable. Once firmly fitted in your ear canals, crystal clear notes from your music will flood your brain. The sleeves block out a lot of external noise and they also reduce audio leakage, so that your music can't be heard by those around you.
Housed within each earphone is an 8.6mm speaker with a frequency response of 20Hz-18KHz. They offer the same amount of power as the a-Jays Three headphones, although the high frequency response isn't as good (the a-Jays Three have a high frequency response of 22Khz). Regardless, in our tests the treble was spot on. Mid-tones were rich and clear and the bass didn’t overpower the mid- and high-range frequencies. At high volumes there was little to no distortion.
If you want deeper bass, however, then the more advanced t-Jays One headphones are a better proposition as they have a low frequency response down to 18Hz, but you will have to spend double the money.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
