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.)

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
I highly recommend the Dynabook Portégé® X30L-G notebook for everyday business use, it is a benchmark setting notebook of its generation in the lightweight category.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
