JAYS of Sweden brings a rare, but welcome Scandinavian approach to personal audio products. The Stockholm-based company offers headphones which along with being well-made, sport an affordable price.
Quite frankly, my only experience with Scandianavian-flavored headphones has been trying out Bang & Olufsen headphones in a store. The goodies from the Danish company are well known for their quality and design, but also come with hefty price tag. In the case of JAYS of Sweden, I got a chance to try out the a-JAYS One+ and the a-JAYS Four. Both headsets are priced slightly above the $50 range, which was enough to get me curious. Read more »

The Motorola Atrix HD entered our battery test track right after we crowned our new champion – the GSM flavored, Android ICS booting Motorola RAZR MAXX. The AT&T exclusive device packs a truly impressive spec sheet, but is powered by a relatively modest 1780mAh. That’s why we were cautious with our expectations towards the Kevlar dressed handset.
The Motorola Atrix HD did fairly well in the telephony section of the battery trial. Read more »
