Ajit, an avid JAYS lover was kind enough to share with us his views on the a-Jays Five Android. As we read his review, we couldn’t agree more.


Design & Build


Firstly, I loved the packaging. Its very sleek, stylish and all black. You know its a quality product when it almost screams at you. It includes the earphones in a plastic carry case, a clip and extra silicon tips, all encased in black foam. For a first impression it looks fantastic.
This wasn't my first Jays product. I have been acquainted with the a-Jays Two in the past, and thus expected the packaging to be brilliant. Must say, and it didn't disappoint.
The carry case is slightly large, so it may not appeal to everyone. It works for me and looks good. It has silicon tips in every size you'd need. Overall, all the extras are great. The earphones feel great in your hands. They are made of this soft rubber, which seems sturdy, looks great and fits in your ears beautifully. The flat cable means no tangling, and lesser chances of snagging, the pin is a 90 degree pin, and looks strong. I don't see connector problems coming my way. 
I'd like to mention these are probably the most comfortable pair of earphones I've ever used. They stay put, and offer great isolation without putting too much pressure on your ear. You may find the earphones falling out occasionally, only if you take the pair to the gym, or out for a run. Otherwise its a treat.

Audio Gear Used

I've tried these out with the Fiio Kiliminjaro DAC, which added gain and bass boost.
Other wise I use the Jet Audio pro music player on my phone and utilize its various sound effects options. This really compliments and gives me the best out of these earphones.

Sound & Performance

They are loud, offer incredible clarity and the soundscape is brilliant. The bass is terrific, like most commercial earphones these are slightly bent towards more low end, but brilliant mids and sharp highs offer a great overall sound.  A little tweaking around on my equalizer and I had these earphones blowing my mind.
It's everything I expected from the pair.  Great sound isolation, great response, good definition and clarity in the soundscape makes me feel good about investing so much in a pair of earphones.

Final Verdict

Good build, slightly pricey, great sound quality and great comfort.
Brilliant overall product.
I'd recommend these to anyone who wants to enjoy their music, and really experience it.
