The World's Smallest Earphones

Earphones hardly ever break. 

Short of sitting on them, trapping them in a door or dropping them down the loo, the tiny little speaker inside an earphone bud is rarely the first thing to go. A slight wiggle will usually confirm your worst fears - that after one-too-many rough trips in your pocket, the thread-thin cable has given up. 

That's part of the reason why JAYS has spent an enormous amount of effort creating exchangeable cables for its 2cm-long, high-performance q-JAYS earphones.

Using a bunch of clever, complicated building techniques like metal injection moulding and laser cutting, the Stockholm-based headphone manufacturer has managed to perfect its design of the world's smallest earphone to feature exchangeable cables: rather than having to buy separate adaptors for full integration with iOS, Android or audio devices, you can simply screw the compatible cable into the bean-sized q-JAYS. And you won't have to fork out for a new set every time you ruin a single cable.

Made from solid stainless steel, each bud of the q-JAY contains two tiny speakers, engineered in like a loudspeaker: rather than having one speaker to create both low and high-to-midrange sounds, the dual speakers of the q-JAYS are able to produce more naturally balanced tones. 

Set to cost around £296 (€399), you'll be able to save yourself a heap of cable hassle when the new q-JAYS arrive later this year. Until then, best take the time to treat your existing earphones with the respect they deserve, okay?
