I saw a review on youtube.

They look amazing but apparently not very good for the price.

What do you think of them?

Are the Atrios better?

BTW do you have livewires

Do you have a link to that YouTube review? (EDIT: I guess it's this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvrEJfDyhcE )

I think they sound very fine, as far as I can tell on the first day.

Those are completely different sounding phones than the Atrios, it's hard to compare. Usually I'm not a fan of balanced armatures (Super.Fi, Shure, Etymotic), but the q-Jays certainly do a lot right. It's almost magic, the bass coming out of these microscopic thingies, combined with the clarity of an Etymotic IEM.

Kramer5150 is not so random, he's one of the top-10 posters over at Head-Fi...

I got them directly from Jays in Sweden.

Oi mate, me cockney accent isn't trained well enough to catch your drift.

People assume that if you thought they sounded bad, you would not have put up pics.

My question was rhetorical (hence the smilie), but well... go to http://jays.se/ enter your country, and you'll see how much they drain your wallet.

Dfkt have you had any experience with the j-JAYS?
BTW: Do the j-JAYS come with a headphone splitter or case?

No, the q-Jays are my first IEMs from Jays. Never heard their earlier models.

The huge array of accessories that comes with the q-Jays is pictured above. You probably can find out on Jays' website what accessories come with the j-Jays.
