Average purchase, there are some things to complain about.

We got headphones with a defective jack. Because of this, when they tried to insert it into the phone (Samsung S7), they got stuck and bent the contact in the phone, which is responsible for the microphone and buttons. Now the native S7 headphones do not adjust the volume and the microphone does not work. Moreover, everything is fine on the tablet, that is, the problem is not in the native headphones, but in the fact that the phone contact is damaged. Upon closer examination, it turned out…

  • Stylish design, but a friend says that orange "mushrooms" do not go well with rose gold :)
  • The sound is raised in high. Due to a large fungus, I could not put it in my ear normally, because of which there was no bass at all, as well as medium frequencies. A small "fungus" needs to be unpacked, and we have a copy of the headphones with a marriage, so let's go change, so I didn't unpack. But if you press the headphones, then the bass appears.

The product is good, there are only a few minor flaws.

Headphones are normal, at a cost of 1k (1000). These will last 1-2 years with proper care. Some pros: Pleasant both in terms of design and tactile. Bass needs to be warmed up, it is not enough and is blurry in places. Not an expert on high low and medium frequencies, but I will say that everything seems to be normal, the sound does not cut, the volume reserve is large, very loud. The kit comes with a case, interchangeable nozzles (I don’t remember what they are called: D), documents and the…

The quality is top notch and I recommend the product for purchase.

I bought these headphones to replace the Sennheiser CX200 and VJJB V1S, I ordered them on ebay from Japan. The price was 836 at the rate of the dollar, which is cheaper than ours. Package contents: headphones, pouch, instruction (including 2022) and 3 interchangeable ear pads. Many people forget that "sound" is an individual matter, I really liked the sound, clear bass, high and medium in sufficient quantities. I mainly listen to club and dance music and have not been disappointed. The cord of…

Not exactly what I wanted, but basically everything is fine.

Do not take T290. Better take t210. Or Zenkhi cx300-II, in Zenkhi at least the noise reduction is better. And more bass. I was once a fan of Dzhubileev, but the further you go, the more disappointment. And general advice. If you want to save your ears - don't take ear plugs "" 2.5k. Even Philipps for 400 do not sound much worse. Yes, there is more porridge in places, but the ears are not so tired .

  • From the pros: 1) Build Quality 2) Design 3) Soft carrying case 4) Price
  • One of the most controversial headphones in my life. Although I'm lying. Too often made a discount for the brand. This time I won’t: it’s hot! 1) The sound is very whimsical, like the whole brand. You constantly have to play around with the equalizer so that the blood from the ears does not go from the abundance of treble and midrange. Moreover, the high frequencies are quite clean, but the medium ones are a hodgepodge. Only Cloud listen to repchik and some electronics. In rock and more Dr. The genre of vocals is stupidly indistinguishable. 2) The ear cushions are OK, but the ears themselves are too big. But they do not fall out, as many write. And do not cut the ear. I just wore a much more comfortable model.

Switched to this model with JBL t110bt. I immediately changed the complete ear pads to the old ones, from Philips headphones. My subjective opinion is that the native ones are too rigid, therefore they do not fit snugly and let in extraneous sounds. In general, after changing the ear pads, the sound became much better, and, accordingly, they are more stable in the ears. Compared to the t110bt, I like the sound more.

  • Sound quality; Build quality; Wire length; Pouch included; Acceptable price.
  • The quality of the ear pads from the kit, which is why the sound quality suffers and the headphones themselves are unstable in the ears.

A valuable purchase, some advantages!

With apprehension I bought to replace the JBL T110 Blue, which worked for a little more than a month (the plug itself died - it works when it is not completely immersed in the laptop and completely refuses the phone). Brought an hour ago. They also sit, outwardly very similar. But the sound is much better. I would say it's vastly different. The T110 had trouble with the mids. Here the vocals and guitars sound clean and rich. At the time of writing this review, I enjoy Rory Graham's vocals. Bass

I thought it would be better, but overall not bad.

The problem with the ear pads was solved by replacing them with ones bought on ebay (those with an inner diameter of 4mm came up) Got pros: Loud. The sound is balanced at all frequencies, clear. Bass is present. Normal for its price (took for 1199) Some cons: Unusable (apparently too hard) ear pads, all three sizes did not fit well in the ears, they were poorly soundproofed.

I'm completely satisfied with the product, it works.

However, good headphones, aluminum is felt - in the cold. About black. Often they knock against each other, from which small white cracks are visible. Pros below: Good sound (bass just surprises me, like a subwoofer in my ears), build quality, no tangles. Has cons: Plug. Still, the first such headphones lived for 1.5 months, which is very little. I don’t like the wire a little because it’s kind of crooked, which is why the plug has kinks and that’s it, there is no sound from the left / right…

The purchase was not worth it at all.

To replace the Sony EX-310LP, I bought these ears. The sound is good, VIPer FX finishes well. Unfortunately, they did not last long: only 1 month. They broke like cheap Chinese noodle ears break - they bent at the plug.

I do not recommend spending my money on this.

They lasted about half a year. One fine day, one earphone stopped working, the wire broke near the plug. The problem is frequent, in principle, for headphones, but I thought that this company would be better, but it turned out like everyone else. There are no complaints about the sound, they sound decent.

For their price, the headphones are great, the sound is perfect, but, as I described above, after six months the left earphone stopped working. Pros: Perfect sound for me. Flat cable, earphones do not get tangled. Aluminium case. Has some cons: Six months later, the left earpiece stopped working, it seems to me that this is the problem of my copy.

A good product, I advise you to try it.

I compared with other headphones of this format, and this is the best sound so far. For the sound, I forgive brittleness, so my assessment is good headphones. With its pros: Very good sound, soundproofing. For the money, the sound is simply amazing. Cons: Not the most comfortable shape of the "plug" for my ear, but this is a common problem with all headphones. The main drawback is that JBL headphones in this price category fail in 5-8 months, the cord just bends. My girlfriend and I use it, the

disappointed. Different pros: comfortable, good design, soundproofing, microphone, flat cable, easy to unravel Has some cons: after a few months, the sound quality began to die, after six months the left earpiece stopped working, it became unbearable to listen to anything.

The product did not disappoint, the quality pleases.

Pros below: 1) unrealistic sound quality, did not expect this, for such a price 2) great bass 3) when compared with air pods, then jbl t290 is much louder 4) the design looks quite aesthetically pleasing) Cons: The only thing is, since I have them recently, I'm not sure how reliable they are. Well, they are not very comfortable in the ear, but over time you get used to it.

Not worth taking this, doesn't meet any standards.

I do not advise these headphones, I had jbl t100 so they lasted for 2 years, the sound is slightly worse and they differ in the presence of b, but they also cost half as much. It is better to buy them, for your money t100 top. And the t290 is , for this price it’s better to byp it and take a sony or senheiser

I do not understand who writes laudatory reviews for these headphones. Sound . Even after warming up. Quiet, flat, without accents. The declared Pure B technology is not a hint. I speak as a musician who understands sound. The quality of the materials is fabulous junk. Soundproofing - just no. Wasted money and disappointment - that's what this vaunted Jbl t290 is. I will not speak about other headphones of the brand - I have not tried them. I return to the favorite sound of KZ and Sennheiser…

Bad product, not worth the money.

In the comments, everyone was divided into 2 groups: those who are delighted with the sound and those who consider it disgusting. It's strange, but when I plugged these headphones in after the next dead TX1 philips (enough for exactly a year, there were two of them), I thought what the . Some kind of flat mishmash of b, and other frequencies, no detail. I got upset, listened to them for 2 hours and, strangely, it began to seem that they were playing normally. Though I guess I just got used to…

  • Quite comfortable for me
  • Something is wrong with the sound

Bought for 1.5k. There is no b at all, through the equalizer this is not solved in any way. They died after 3 months. The ears from these ear pads start to hurt after 30 minutes. So that they normally lie in the ear and there is no feeling that they are trying to out your brain, you need to crawl with them for about 5 minutes and it’s not a fact that you will be able to achieve this. You will have to listen to your favorite music without b and the desire to kill yourself from the fact that you

  • The wire does not get tangled, price, metal case, appearance.
  • Lack of woofer constantly fall out of the ears due to simply disgusting, uncomfortable, too hard and just clically bad ear pads by jbl. The black paint started peeling off after a month.

Used for about 4 months, during this time they did not disappoint once. Recently lost, had to order new ones. No matter how much I wool the Internet, I didn’t find it better in this price category. I think I'll tighten this time in heat shrink so that they live longer. Gentlemen, those who like to complain about fragility: “droplets”, or “sticks”, rarely live longer than 3 months. Alas, there are no eternal ears (. I strongly recommend to buy!

  • Loud, and great sound quality. In the kit you will also find a bag, which is generally fantastic) for so many shekels.
  • Too cheap.
