Jays' t-Jays Three is a pair of in-ear canal headphones with removable ear sleeves. There are four different sizes included in the sales package, which ensures that you will find a pair that fits you. Good fit is important for this type of headphone, and so far all of the Jays range we've reviewed have come with extra sleeves and been super-comfy to wear! Sleeves that are too big will be uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time, while those that are too small will let more sound in from the outside world and the headphones will keep falling out. The different-sized sleeves included in the box means that everyone should be covered.
The t-Jays Three headphones are a real pleasure to listen to. Music sounded extremely clear; there was a lot of bass when needed and the headphones never sounded tinny. When we tested the t-Jays Three with an iPhone 3G, we were amazed to hear some parts of albums we had never heard before. This is evident even at really low volumes, where these headphones really shine.
What really sets the t-Jays Three headphones apart from competitors, however, are the drivers. They are placed at an angle to the in-ear part, which is quite different to how headphones are normally shaped. They look different enough that you might at first think that the 'L' and 'R' on the headphones have been misprinted. After you become more familiar with them, however, you will realise that this is not the case. The odd angle of the driver means that it will sit behind the tragus (the pointy bit of cartilage in front of your ear canal), rather than standing out past your ear. This lower profile allows you to comfortably rest your head on something without feeling pain or discomfort from the headphones being pressed in to your ears. The rubber covering on this part of the headphones also feels quite comfortable even when worn for extended periods.
Included in the sales package are four sizes of ear sleeves, a double adapter, an extension cord, a plane adapter, and a carry case.
The case for these headphones looks like something out of a science fiction movie. When you open it, it will fold entirely back into itself. This looks quite cool but unfortunately it is totally impractical. The size and shape of it means that you can only fit the headphones and the extension cord, or the headphones and the plane adapter. This is a shame for headphones billed as travel headphones. A carry case that was more rectangular shaped would allow you to carry both of those accessories and not take up much more room. While some of the cool factor would be lost, the plane adapter would be with you on your travels rather than still sitting on your desk as you board the plane for a weekend away. (Unfortunately, our attempts to expense another holiday were unsuccessful and we were therefore unable to test the plane adapter.)

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
