q-JAYS® Earphones

Retired

The smallest earphone in the world

With its astonishingly minute size the q-JAYS are the smallest earphones on the market. Despite this we have managed to fit in dual micro armatures and a sound that will blow you away. q-JAYS come in black and white and also in beautiful, vibrant Limited Edition colors for those who wants more color in life. If you thought you had heard it all – think again.

Great Looks, Great Performance

q-JAYS White Laying down

The q-JAYS contain one tweeter that delivers precise highs and one woofer that creates rich lows and mids in each earphone.

q-JAYS are constructed using the same technology as our award-winning d-JAYS, but we have worked to dramatically shrink the armature size.

Despite a housing size almost a third the size of d-JAYS, our top model manages to fit two micro armatures into each earphone.

An Ultimate Fit

Smart earphone design and soft silicone sleeves which are available in five sizes; enables the earphone to fit snugly into any ear. The sleeves are washable which means you can keep them clean at all times. q-JAYS also comes with a pair of foam sleeves for users who prefer these to silicone sleeves. Additionally, each sound tube houses a protective filter designed to keep your earphones clean from dust and earwax and prolong their life.

Award Winning

The media has given q-JAYS many ‘best in class’ awards as a result of their great performance in terms of sound and design. Once your ears experience their quality and clarity you won’t want to let them go.

Dual micro armatures

q-JAYS Armature

The q-JAYS armature

The dual micro armatures of q-JAYS are the smallest in the world. The technique is the same as d-JAYS but each earphone has one woofer for the mids and low frequencies and one tweeter for the detailed highs.

By dividing the frequency curve on separate drivers it is possible to get an even clearer sound than with single armature drivers.

Four different colors

Besides the two standard colors q-JAYS are also available in our Limited Edition colors Maroon Red and Sea Blue. Same inside different outside to fit your taste.
