The AKG K712 Pro, being at a premium price, offers superior overall sound quality, a more expansive soundstage, and is better for critical listening sessions due to its open-back design. These headphones are ideal for a more immersive music and TV/video experience but are not suitable for loud environments or on-the-go use since they don’t offer noise isolation and are not portable. On the other hand, the JLab Go Work Wireless at a budget price, provides good sound quality, a boom mic for clear calls, and features like Bluetooth connectivity and built-in controls that are convenient for work and casual listening. They also offer better portability and can be used in noisier settings due to their closed-back design. If budget is a constraint or you need versatile headphones for work and moderate exercise, JLab Go Work Wireless would be practical, otherwise, for the best audio fidelity at home, the AKG K712 Pro is a superior choice.

Headfonics

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."

Headphone Check

Maike Paeßens | 2021
"If you are going to criticise the JLab Go Work, it would be for the cables, which are to some extent too short for their intended use, and for its rather harsh treble reproduction above moderate volume levels in music mode. However, the call quality during telephone calls and video conferences in voice mode via wireless and via cable is impeccable. This handy Bluetooth headset also scores points with its excellent battery life and support for multipoint connections."
