Product Q&A

Does it have a slider clasp to hold the wires going to each earbud? I bought the Tune 205 headphones and they do not have a slider to help manage the wires.

Asked by: jb1234
I would still prefer to have a slider clasp so that one earbud isn't hanging below my waist when I put the other one in my ear.

whats the difference between the T290 and the t210? im planning to buy either one of these but what maked the t290 more expensive?

Asked by: _kk_
Hi The JBL T290 headphones feature solid metal housing for the speakers. The T210 has a metallic "look" only. The sound signature on both is slightly different, where the T290 produces a different bass, mainly because of the more rigid housing. You would have to try the both of them, to be able to hear the difference. Both the T210 and T290 are excellent, and recommending one over the other, for us, is not possible, since how sound is perceived is very personal.

Please tell me the difference between T210 and T290

Asked by: T S REDDY
Hi. The difference is in the mechanical construction, where the T290 has an all-metal cast body, and T210 has a plastic main frame, with metal outer shell. The drive unit and specs are the same, but audio is more precise in the T290 due to the sturdy construction.

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.

T290 would be best if you're using bluetooth. T205 would be good if you want to listen on wired connection.

Since this one priced similarly with the T280A, what is the difference and which one is better?

Asked by: GerryR
Thanks for your interest. The JBL T280A is the better one between the two with its High Performance 9mm Drivers. It's more louder compared to the JBL T290.
