The JBL Tune 710BT offers a longer battery life which is ideal for extended use without frequent charging, and they include a detachable cable for versatility between wireless and wired use. However, the Sennheiser HD 250BT outperforms in terms of sound quality and includes low latency support, making them a superior choice for gaming and video enjoyment. Additionally, the Sennheiser comes with app support that allows for sound customization and control, enhancing your experience especially if you use a smartphone. Both are closed, over-ear headphones with similar comfort and noise isolation, but for longer battery life and wired option, go for JBL, and for better sound quality and low latency, choose Sennheiser.

Headphone Check

Pete Scholßnagel | 2020
"As a lightweight, robust audio provider with a long battery life, the Sennheiser HD 250BT offer a lot for their price: very good Bluetooth codecs, an app connection and an extremely understated design. These headphones may not be among the most comfortable, but they deliver adequate sound – without overdriving or distortion."
