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.

Hi The JBL T290 are not waterproof, so these may not be perfectly suited to use with sports activities. We sadly cannot inform you of which type of magnets are used in our products. This information is not available to us.

Hi. since I'm unable to find the answer in the specs section, what is the TOTAL length of the ear-phones? this is the only issue I need to verify before purchasing them.

Asked by: GGGG7
Hi, and thank you for your interest! The cable is 126 cm long, including the plug, but without the body of the headphones being included. The body adds about 1.2 cm.

Are the JBL T290 compatible with Lumia Phones please ? I have a Lumia 950XL and Lumia 540. Thank you.
