If you prioritize sound quality for music and an immersive experience for TV and video, the AKG K712 Pro would serve you better despite its higher cost and need for an amplifier for optimal performance; keep in mind they are open-back and don't offer portability or exercise suitability. On the other hand, if you need something affordable, suitable for exercise, and with good battery life, Jlab Go Air Sport earbuds are more practical, offering sweat resistance and a secure fit with ear hooks, but they compromise on sound quality and isolation from ambient noise.

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."

PC Mag

Tim Gideon | April 2022
"If you want seriously bass-forward earphones for the gym, you'll be hard-pressed to find a pair more affordable than the JLab Go Air Sport. We like their long battery life and solid water-resistance rating, though we aren’t fans of their finicky on-ear controls and the case’s hardwired charging cable."
