When In Manila and you’re looking for a perfect earphone for your Apple/iOS device. Look no further, you’ve got the a-JAYS Four. Specifically made to match Apple devices.
Just look at that packaging. Props to JAYS for this.
Packaging: I’ve always been intrigued by the packaging of JAYS. They’re not the usual box type or plastic type packaging that we often see with other products of the same category. I began noticing and being curious with JAYS products ever since I saw them in local distributors. When you see them, you would definitely think that these are premium products due to the elegant packaging. The packaging is nicely done that I actually wanted them to be a potential case for my other things and gadgets.
You get the basic packaging of extra tips for the proper fit.
Upon opening, the a-JAYS Four comes with 5 basic sets of ear tips to allow you to find your own fit. I ended up using the largest tips since my ear canals are fairly big.
Ain’t it a beaut.
Build/Design: Upon opening the a-JAYS Four, I was met with a beautiful white set of earpieces. My initial thought was “wow these are beautiful set of earphones”. I got the white version and they definitely are well crafted and designed. The microphone/buttons on these are also integrated well with the design, and the build quality is superior. I noticed how the earphones were nicely designed and how the packaging matched this very well. As I took the earphones off the box, Upon taking the a-JAYS Four out of the packaging, I was me with how durable the flat tangle-free cables are on the JAYS. I’ve had and encountered many other products having the same flat tangle-free type of cables, and I must say, the JAYS gave the most durable impression with them. They don’t feel flimsy and they don’t feel like they will snap from sudden tugs. Upon wearing them, I noticed that the cables are slightly heavy although, it is no deal breaker since the earphone’s housing design allows for a snugly fit deep in my ear.
Even the writing is nicely integrated to the design.

I’ve had a 15mm driver in-ear earphone before that boasted powerful bass and I must say that the a-JAYS Four had very good controlled and deep sub-bass. They don’t have extreme ear shaking bass, but they are more than enough and goes deep well. The bass doesn’t disrupt other frequency ranges much, unlike other in-ear earphones on the same price bracket.
I really really love these a-JAYS Four in-ear earphones! I own much much much more expensive earphones, headphones and amplifiers, and I’ve always looked for an earphone that I could bring and just plug on my iPhone without any amplifier needed. A daily beat-up or walk-around earphone per-se. And I think, really really think, that I have found that walk-around, beat-up earphone that I need when I have no space to bring my hifi cables and amplifiers with these a-JAYS Four in-ear earphones. I throw any song at it and it fits the bill. It’s not an audiophile grade earphone, but it’s the best consumer earphone I have tried up to date. Not to mention that it looks cool and doesn’t tangle in your pocket. And of course, Apple device controls! Instead of wasting money on those overpriced Beats in-ear earphones, you should definitely grab these instead. You will thank me for the tip. a-Jays Four SRP: P4,499
In-line mic/controls for Apple devices.
Cable restrains show that it can take quite a beating.
All JAYS items carry a 2-year limited warranty. How more awesome is that?
