The AKG K361 boasts superior overall sound quality, which results in a more immersive listening experience for music enthusiasts; balanced by its lack of wireless connectivity, it's better suited for a stationary listening environment. On the other hand, the JBL Tune 710BT offers wireless convenience and a significantly longer battery life, making it ideal for users who prioritize portability and flexibility, despite a marginal compromise in sound quality. Additionally, the JBL's integrated microphone and control options enhance its usability for calls and general multimedia purposes, aligning well with a lifestyle on-the-go. Keep in mind that while the AKG K361 is generally more expensive, its robust build is matched by higher sound and comfort scores, potentially justifying the expenditure for dedicated listeners looking for a premium experience primarily in stationary settings.

Medium

Alex Rowe | November 2019
"The K361 retains much of what makes the K371 such a winner, though it has a leaner sound, and the build changes made to trim the price down are immediately apparent. Still, it’s another excellent offering from AKG, and other companies in this fight should either be very worried or quickly designing updates to their old models."
