On our comparison wheel today, are two audio companies which come from different origins but yet meet each other at the same price bracket. 

The Swedish brand has innovated the ultimate a-JAYS Five, a solution for your Android or Windows smartphone with their custom drivers, durable aluminium and thermoplastic materials. Whereas, The Sennheiser CX 275s combines serious bass response with a light and secure fit design


CUTTING THE LONG STORY SHORT

"If a whooping 3 year warranty and a plethora of accessories are in your mind, then the RHA MA350 is the best pick in this price bracket.

But, If you want no further than an earphone with mic then you should go with the SoundMAGIC E10C

DESIGN: JAYS - A-JAYS FIVE vs SENNHEISER - cx275s

After a lot of research, JAYS has carefully designed these earphones to be comfortable for longer periods of usage. The fit is secure, and the angular shape of the earphones make sure they rest comfortably in your ears, isolating external noise. By combining different materials into the build, and covering precision-turned aluminum with a flexible thermoplastic form, they were able to create compact, soft and flexible earphones with great acoustics.
Everything about the a-JAYS Five speaks highly of JAYS' sense of aesthetics. Let's just say, we're not surprised that their made in Sweden. Available in colours of black and white, these earphones are really very easy on the eyes.
JAYS - A-JAYS FIVE's MINIMALISTIC DESIGN VS SENNHEISER'S SECURE-FIT DESIGN

Sennheiser aptly describes the 275s' design as intuitive, highly-aesthetic, and ergonomic.The CX275s features a simple, lightweight design, with dark, metallic grey earpieces and black, ridged accents; and the thin black cable with an inline remote and microphone that descends from the left ear's cable, hanging just below the chin. The Sennheiser CX 275s combines serious bass response with a light and secure fit design. The body has been clearly built to look clean, without attracting too much of attention . 


USABILITY: JAYS - A-JAYS FIVE vs SENNHEISER - CX275S

The a-JAYS Five is a very impressive mobile headset. A three-button remote control is provided on the cable and each button is customizable using the JAYS Headset Control App. Which, by the way, is available for free on the Google Play Store. Want to auto-start a favourite app? Or call your girlfriend in 3 quick button presses - these earphones will let you do that and much more.
Let's talk about fit. JAYS has, in its exquisitely packaged a-JAYS Five supplied a whole bunch of silicone eartips - 5 pairs, if we're not wrong. If you have dwarf-like enormous ears or tiny baby ears, you should be able to find the right fit. And achieving a right fit is the golden key to achieving good noise isolation! Oh, and a nice touch is its hard carry case that you can flaunt in bag as you cruise through the streets.
The cherry on the cake has got to be its tangle free cables. Honestly, if someone has a JAYS in hand, you can probably tell from a mile away. These flat cables are really durable to the touch and feel like they would last forever.
TANGLE RESISTANT CABLE VS TANGLE PRONE CABLE
The Sennheiser CX 275s comes with three pairs of black silicone ear tips, a cable adapter, and a small black carry pouch. And although touted to have a universal remote,these in-ears may not be compatible with older devices. 

However, the cables are very thin and the lack of tangle-resistance is a disappointment.

The noise isolation is decent but not great, assuming you can get a decent seal with the 3 different sized silicone eartips however using ComplyFoam eartips definitely improves isolation to a certain extent if not much

Coming to the warranty, JAYS - A-JAYS FIVE offers a 2 years Manufacturer's Warranty and so does SENNHEISER

There has never been a more affordable way to get yourself immersed in the world of in-ear headphones; the new a-JAYS Series gives you a listening experience that is far superior to that of the standard earbuds packaged with your MP3 player or phone.

It’s all about the Rhythm. The a-JAYS Series gives you a rich, deep bass response and will help you to rediscover your music all over again. The rhythm sections in your favourite tunes will be uplifted and reinvigorated; music has never been so much fun.

RICH BASS VS HEAVY BASS

On tracks with serious bass, the CX 275s provides ample boom, that too without distortion, even at high volumes. The CX 275s does manage to maintain a decent balance between lows and highs to some extent.

Sometimes, however, there is a  strange mid to high boosting. In specific areas, the highs are so boosted that there is a strange mix of elements that stand out dramatically.

Certain electronic percussive sounds can seem far too bright, even a bit harsh or tinny. You will find that these in-ears may get muffled in the pursuit of pumpy audio delivery.

Bottom line, this is the earphone for people who enjoy the added sheen in their music.
