It's quite rare to find earphones that offer superb balanced sound quality and offer accurate frequency response at the same time. Most earphones either offer one of the two or often compromise on build quality.
However, 1More's triple driver earphones break that myth and offer all of these factors in one package.
It's our favourite earphones to use at the moment and there's a good reason for it: nothing comes close to these earphones right now. We used it for casual podcast listening, music and gaming and it performed well in all scenarios apart from a few minor caveats.
Here's our review of 1More's Triple Driver earphones:Packaging
Normally, we don't talk much about the packaging of an earphone as it's quite generic; even for high-end headphones. However, 1More gives you a box that is filled with accessories and overall justifies its premium aura. It comes with a hard faux-leather case for your earphones, a metal shirt clip, an adapter for planes and a set of 10 ear-tips.
No other brand in India gives you so many ear-tips that cater to your personal liking. There are three pairs of foam tips and seven silicone tips giving you the freedom to use what suits you best.
The box is also shaped and designed as a hard book. It has magnets that keep it closed and the interiors have sketches of the earphones. It's by far the most premium looking packaging we've ever seen and 1More deserves a point just for making that extra effort.Design
1More is a company that designs all the earphones for Xiaomi. In fact, you will see the same design language in some of Xiaomi's products today. The 1More triple driver has an aluminium shell that is shaped like a cone with an angle.
Due to this design choice, it sits perfectly in the ear to give the best sound experience possible. The cable is also made of braided fabric that makes it easier to manage and does not get easily tangled.
Overall, the build quality is top notch as it feels quite durable and sturdy. The cables will remain intact even if you use it quite roughly thanks to the braided fabric. The earbuds feel extra comfortable even when we used it for prolonged periods of time. We tested the earphones while gaming and the sheer comfort was able to add a few hours in game time.
The supplied pouch is also a handy thing to have as it makes it easier to commute with these headphones. You can easily store this headphone in the pouch to protect it from getting damaged in your pocket or bag. The pouch comes most handy when you are travelling on planes as you can store the adapter in the pouch as well. You can use the adapter on planes to watch content and have a far better experience than those lousy headphones you get in the flight.How Does It Sound?
The 1More Triple driver earphones consist of two armature driver and a dynamic driver in each earbud. These deliver a superior sound experience as the balanced armature drivers can host multiple drivers in a compact body.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the sound from the earphones and this pair also happen to be THX certified. So if you love to watch movies on the go, these earphones will also deliver a surround sound experience.
In terms of sound, the 1More Triple Driver earphones deliver a very precise, clear and rich sound. The bass is not too heavy leaving enough room for the mids and highs to be balanced. This combination makes the sound a little less muddy even when you turn up the volume. The slight mid-bass bump also results in a very balanced and warm tone that is quite rare to find on in-ear headphones.Is It Worth It?
In India, the 1More Triple Driver earphone costs Rs 7,349 on Amazon and is worth every single rupee. To be honest, these earphones should be priced way higher for what it offers in terms of sound and build quality.
It's actually quite hard to think what other earphone sounds betters than the 1More Triple Driver at an unbelievable price like this. It's got luxury level packing, full accessories and a sound that is to die for.
If you are serious about your music, just buy these earphones as soon as you can.
