The Jockey 300 is iDance’s middle-of-the-rung offering in its jockey head phone range. The DJ-style supra-aural headphones incorporate a pair of 44mm neodymium drivers in plastic closed-back cans. Strangely, it also includes an inline microphone replete with a call answer button. The build quality is nothing spectacular, but it isn’t flimsy either. The ear cushions are soft, but the adjustable steel headband exerts lot of pressure. On the bright side, its light-weight and well cushioned headband mitigates the discomfort of long-term usage.
The small white body, however, looks uncharacteristically lithe for a headphone that’s marked as a DJ headset. The sound department seems equality confused. Despite bearing relatively large drivers, the bass is neither tight nor does it possess enough extension. The highs are rendered at noticeably lower levels and tend to roll of at disappointingly lower ranges. Needless to say, these aren’t for those who seek a lot of fine detail in their music. The mids are pronounced, but the closed cans tend to color the sound a tad too much. In a nutshell, what you have here are aesthetically average headphones sporting mediocre performance. This shouldn’t have been concern if they had sported an average price as well. However, at a price tag of $48.34 mediocrity doesn’t cut it anymore.
