Szkoda ze JBL wprowadzil serie Tune 290 po bardzo udanej T290 poniewaz wielu sprzedawcom myla sie obie a roznica pomiedzy nimi jest bardzo znaczaca. T290 ma wspaniały soczysty bass i soprany, sluchajac dzieku przez te małe suchawki nie chce sie wiezyc ze "pchełki" tyle moga. T290 sa fantastyczne i mam je juz od 4 lat.
