Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great sound in the worst package I was excited about this pair but the left earbud quit working after two weeks, at the beginning I heard an annoying plastic noise moving every time i tried to adjust the earbud in my ear canal, and it ended exploding and all i could hear is the noise of that piece of plastic moving inside the left ear piece trying to reproduce music yes its own music, stay away from this as they are a quality fiasco and complete waste of time and money. P.S: the retailer told me i have only 48 hours warranty....

i understand that your sport ear buds would be ideal for physical activity, but I want sound quality as good as the T290's. Is the sound quality of the T290 similar to the Inspire 300? 500?

Asked by: ishishi
The T290 has a driver of 8.7mm, the Inspire 300 has a driver of 14.2 mm while the inspire 500 has a driver has a driver of 15.4 mm. The bigger the size of the driver unit does not necessarily mean better, it is still subjective to the user's evaluation. If you have any more questions, we would like to work with you directly to help you with your issue.

My first question is: Is there an overall db rating? And also can jbls 8.7mm drivers keep up with lower quality brands that have 10mm or even 12mm driver? im sure i wouldnt be dissapointed ive come to love jbl because of my jbl xtreme i purchased

Asked by: Chris259
The T290 overall can produce an average of 85-110 decibels. The quality of the driver unit is what makes a to the sound. The bigger the size of the driver unit doesn't necessarily mean better. Our T290 have high quality 8.7mm drivers in comparison to other competitive brands that may have larger 10 or 12 mm drivers, but not necessarily higher in quality.
