Wonders of Audio World Sennheiser and JBL … Both companies are highly reputed and acclaimed for their product Quality & trustworthy brands.
Comparing Headsets is Subjective task which is difficult for a single person to talk for. So in big R&D departments (Like the one I work for with over 1200 people task-force) we have Jury established containing many experts who rate the different important aspects on the scale of 1:10, Sum of which will finally decide the result.
However in this case I can’t afford to have sound experts for evaluation & I fully rely on Basic technical data & price-point available for Sennheiser CX 180 Street II Vs JBL T150a.
I am also not sound expert, but only a good music lover, to me the Sennheiser CX180 have a better overall tonal balance while the JBL T100A have better rendition at certain frequency ranges. [That does not tell you anything unless you goto shop and use both the headsets yourself !]
