The tune 130 comes more comfy with the ear tips though the pod itself is a monstrousity πŸ˜… The base, noise cancellation, ambient awareness and talk through modes are just way better. Pressure adjustments in the ears are quite well adjusted when you go from full noise cancellation mode πŸ‘ŒπŸΌβ€οΈ

Battery life - 8/10

Pros

This earbuds is clearly a good one with great sound quality. The noise cancelation works so good. The bass, mids and highs are extremely well balanced. And the battery life is simply great! The downsides are the build quality of the case and the JBL headphones app connectivity in android phones. Most of the time the app won't let me to get into the settings page for this earbud. But the app works well in IOS though. Apart from that, some features like auto proximity play pause, multiple device connectivity and per-gesture modification features are lacking in this model.

Pros

  • Excellent sound quality
  • Good Noise Cancelation
  • Well balanced EQ
  • The best battery life
  • TalkThru mode for while speaking in person with someone
  • Excellent support for voice assistant access
  • Custom EQ settings

Cons

  • Build quality
  • JBL headphones app
  • Lack of advanced features
