i got these for $168 singapore dollars.
Packaging - It has the the most accessories out of the 3 models of t-jays. it has 6 pairs of sleeves of different sizes. It also comes with an airline adapter and a splitter. There is also an extension cord. Everything is packed in a stylish pull-out box.
Build - The wires that the earphones are attached to is about 0.6m long and is a Y-cord. The wires are standard consumer grade, i.e. pretty thin. The earphones itself has a rubbery feeling to it, not the smooth plastic that are found on most other phones. This makes it easier to grip the buds for insertion and taking out since they sit pretty flat inside the ears.
The buds itself sits flat in the ear when worn, sleeping in them should not be a problem. They are extremely comfortable and light.
Sound Quality -
Treble is present and clear. It sounds pretty crisp. Neither too forward nor absent. Sibilance can be heard in only in the extremes, I'd imagine it wouldn't be a problem for most people. The highs are not analytical like the etymotics or any armature that tends towards an analytical sound.
Mids are pretty good as well. Vocals blends well into the music and does not stand out like other mid-centric phones.
Bass extends fairly deep. Bass details are average. The bass sounds a tad boomy.
Soundstage is average. There is discernible left right sense of space, but its not very "3 dimensional".
Conclusion - I'd say the t-jay three are ok for the price. There are other phones out there which are cheaper and has better sound quality (subjective), such as the hifiman re0. But if good sound and extreme comfort if your priority, I think you wouldn't go wrong with the t-jays three.
