If you prioritize wireless convenience and longer battery life for extended listening sessions, the JBL Tune 710BT would be better for you as they offer these features along with integrated controls and a foldable design for greater portability. On the flip side, if you prefer a richer soundstage and an open-back design that typically provides a more natural listening experience, the Koss Porta Pro might be more to your liking. However, they lack a built-in microphone, so they wouldn't be the best choice for calls and meetings. Neither model is sweatproof or dustproof, but the JBL has some noise isolation due to its over-ear, closed-back design, which the Koss Porta Pro lacks because of its on-ear, open-back design.

"We are facing headphones that are comfortable to use with a foldable and lightweight design, which is combined with 40mm dynamic drivers and a multipoint Bluetooth connection, which makes them versatile and a good option for day-to-day use, whether for listening music, podcasts, audiobooks, or videos."

"It’s clear to see why these have been such a popular choice amongst listeners for nearly four decades. It’s a charming pair of headphones that delivers a truly enjoyable listening experience and one that I think punches well above its weight."
