Having looked at, and quickly dismissed the massive outlay for a pair of Dr.Dre head/earphones, I settled for these a-Jays. My choice was a good one, bearing in mind that I would be using them with my iPhone, and not a high spec Bang & Olafsen system. I feel things have to be put in context.These earphones are comfortable, coming with a selection of rubber grommets of different sizes, and sound excellent. One minor niggle was changing the rubbers. A brain surgeon would probably be dexterous enough to undertake this challenge. For me, with my fat, shakey fingers and diminishing eyesight, it was a battle of wills. Taking them of is simple...putting them back on was a nightmare.
We all know that earphone cables come to life when we're not looking, and coil themselves into the most extraordinary knots and tangles. The flat cables on the a-Jays however, do not seem to present this problem, and have a very robust, rubbery feel.
Do watch out if you have a case on your iPhone. The jackplug on these earphones is angled at 45 degrees to the cable, and could be impeded by a small aperture in the case. I have an Otterbox fitted to my phone, and the plug pushes home far enough to give a good connection.
Please also be aware that there is no microphone on these earphones, something I didn't notice when ordering them. The more expensive models do have a built-in mic.
For the price paid, I certainly cannot fault these little beauties, and would say that unless you want 'state-of-the-art', they are well worth considering.

One nice feature about these earphones which no one else seems to have mentioned, is that they have a flat back, which effectively leaves then flush with your ears rather than jutting out.
This makes then extremely comfortable to where whilst lying on your side in bed as you are not lying on them and muffling the sound.
The new a-Jays series gives you a listening experience far superior to that of the standard earbuds packaged with your phone or MP3 player. Featuring an 8.6mm dynamic driver, the a-Jays One earphones offer a rich, deep bass response alongside crystal-clear treble.
Flat, tangle free cable
With the a-Jays series you needn't worry about knotted cables. The 5mm wide flat headphone cable is specially designed to resist tangling, so you can store them however you want and pull them straight out, ready for use when you need them.
Includes replacement buds for the perfect fit
Another product innovation from Jays is the inclusion of five pairs of silicone sleeves designed to give you the the best possible earphone fit. Not only will this provide maximum comfort, but also the ultimate in sound quality.
What's in the box:
a-Jays One heavy bass impact earphones
4 pairs of replacement silicone sleeves
*Phones without a 3.5mm headphone socket will require an adapter (sold separately)
