I'm not a headphones expert, I'm deciding between t210 or t290, what is the difference between them?

Asked by: Fernando1977
Hi, Thank you for the question. They are almost the same, expect that the housing of the earphone are different, where T290 is aluminum material and T210 are metallic, and the sound will be a bit better on T290. If you need more help, please contact our customer service.

Does it supports android phones n which one is better t110 or t290

Asked by: Steven2k18
Our headphones support both android and iOS products. The T290 would be better since it's made of sturdy materials.

My first question is: Is there an overall db rating? And also can jbls 8.7mm drivers keep up with lower quality brands that have 10mm or even 12mm driver? im sure i wouldnt be dissapointed ive come to love jbl because of my jbl xtreme i purchased

Asked by: Chris259
The T290 overall can produce an average of 85-110 decibels. The quality of the driver unit is what makes a to the sound. The bigger the size of the driver unit doesn't necessarily mean better. Our T290 have high quality 8.7mm drivers in comparison to other competitive brands that may have larger 10 or 12 mm drivers, but not necessarily higher in quality.

i understand that your sport ear buds would be ideal for physical activity, but I want sound quality as good as the T290's. Is the sound quality of the T290 similar to the Inspire 300? 500?

Asked by: ishishi
The T290 has a driver of 8.7mm, the Inspire 300 has a driver of 14.2 mm while the inspire 500 has a driver has a driver of 15.4 mm. The bigger the size of the driver unit does not necessarily mean better, it is still subjective to the user's evaluation. If you have any more questions, we would like to work with you directly to help you with your issue.
