Jays to launch Windows Phone dedicated earphones

Swedish accessory manufacturer Jays will be launching the a-Jays Five series of earphones this summer, with a version for each mobile platform supported - iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Sporting flat, tangle free cabling, a handy clip and MEMS microphone, every Windows Phone owner will find the new kit useful when out and about.

The earphones will come with a three-button control setup, which will function differently per operating system. As one can see from the image above, they're gorgeous looking too. As well as Windows Phone, the buds will also play nicely with any Windows 8 tablet, with answer / hang up on calls, play / pause / skip songs, manipulate volume levels and more. 

We'll be sure to get a set to see how these new earphones perform with Windows Phones and tablets. Consumers will be able to pick a set up for €90 in black or €100 in white. More information, including US pricing and exact dates of availability will likely come soon.
