Jays V-Jays headphones sleek, flimsy

For those who can't stand the thought of putting earbuds into their ears, the Jays V-Jays Headphones offer a nice alternative in the ultraportable headphone space.

Swedish headphone maker Jays isn't exactly a newcomer to the market, but the company's products had yet to make their way to the CNET Reviews desk until recently. The first pair to earn the privilege is a sleek, $98 on-ear model with a superlightweight and compact design dubbed the V-Jays. These headphones offer reasonably balanced sound and an understated style that will surely appeal to the eye of many an earbud hater, but flimsy elements and an anemic low-end response will turn some potential buyers off.
