q-JAYS are built with the same technology used in our awarded d-JAYS, but we have managed to shrink the armature size drastically. Despite a housing size almost the third of the d-JAYS, our top model fits two micro armatures in each earphone – one tweeter that delivers precise highs and one woofer that creates rich lows and mids. Furthermore an AirBooster enhances the low frequencies and gives an even deeper bass.
Smart earphone design and a soft silicone sleeve, available in five sizes, enables the earphone to fit snugly in any ear. The sleeves are washable and allow you to keep them clean at all times.
JAYS Sound Isolating System reduces the background noise of modern life. With this silent setting you can experience an amazing sound experience even at low volumes.
q-JAYS cord can be adjusted both in length and with different input connectors. q-JAYS comes standard with a 60 cm (~24inch) long cable with a straight 3.5mm (1.8 in) Mini-Plug Stereo connector. It is delivered with two 90 cm (~35inch) extension cords, both with 3.5mm (1.8 in) Mini-Plug Stereo connector, one L-shaped and one I-shaped.

I've tried too many IEMs and full size headphones. It's fun but pricy and one tends to focus on the qualities of the sound rather than the sound itself.
These are best IEMs I've had or used. (No, I have not used any triple drivers such as the SE 530 and assume they would sound better). For the price, though, I bet these can't be beat.
Put these in your ears (incredible how small these and their two drivers are) and detail/soundstage amaze. Treble and bass are good --- but more importantly the sound is addicting and distortion is at a minimum. Also, no hiss unlike many other IEMs. (Note: despite the lack of hiss they
are easy to drive and are a perfect IPOD companion).
I compared them closely to a pair of SE210s. (About the same price.) Some songs sounded good on both. I very much like the modest brightness of the Q-Jays over the loudness of the 210s. More importantly, some songs sound really distorted with the 210s --- especially highly compressed songs. That is, bass and vocals sound off. For example, the pretenders new "Chinese Plastic" song and "Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes. I played the same songs with the Q-Jays and the distortion was not apparent. Like day and night.
Remembering back to other IEMs I've had (Ety 4p's, Ety 6i's, Shure 3c's. Sony 71s), these are the best. The second driver apparently pays real dividends.
This is how I would, somewhat subjectively, rank order them (partly based on memory and partly based on price):
Highly recommended. Well packaged and good accessories --- the pouch is a bit small, but no big deal.
If this fits your price point, buy them without fear. Sometimes a company just gets a product right! You'll enjoy them and your music.
