If you prioritize high sound quality, especially for music and an expansive soundstage, the AKG K712 Pro is a superior choice, favored by audiophiles and professionals but note that it lacks a microphone and built-in controls, making it less versatile for calls or gaming. In contrast, the JBL Tune 760NC offers good sound quality, active noise canceling, and extra convenience like built-in controls and a microphone, making it a more well-rounded option for everyday use such as calls, travel, and exercise. Consider the AKG if your main use is critical listening in a quiet environment, and the JBL if you need versatility and noise cancellation for a variety of environments and tasks. Give Feedback

Michael | October 2013
"AKG has created a mini-masterpiece in my opinion. I enjoy this headphone a great deal and it will become my go-to reference headphone for the time being. She is slick, sexy, well-balanced, and crazy comfortable."

Major HiFi

Staff | May 2023
"The JBL 760NC offers quite a solid and moderately-above-average sonic performance for wireless headphones in this price tier. As usual, JBL outperforms more conventional big names like Apple or Beats. Listeners are given a clean, detailed, and mostly neutral sound that, typical to Harman, holds a universal appeal that seems unlikely to offend."
