Dedicated Windows Phone earphones, a-JAYS Five now available for pre-order

Swedish accessory manufacturer Jays has started the pre-orders for the a-Jays Five series of earphones. Sporting a version for each mobile platform supported - iOS, Android and Windows Phone; flat, tangle free cabling; handy clip and MEMS microphone, every Windows Phone owner will find the new kit useful when out and about. How much are they going for? €89.99 ($120).

As noted in our previous coverage, the earphones will come with a three-button control setup, which will function differently per operating system. They're pretty decent looking, available in both black and white. As well as Windows Phone, the buds will also play nicely with any Windows 8 device, with the ability to answer / hang up on calls, play / pause / skip songs, manipulate volume levels and more.

Nokia is also launching its new line of earphones and headphone accessories (partnering with Zound), which are aggressively priced - well worth checking out if you're looking for a bargain. We'll be sure to get a set of a-Jays Five earphones to see how these new buds perform with Windows Phones and tablets. Will you be picking up a pair?
