These Bass-Heavy Bluetooth Earphones Sound Great & Are Better Than OnePlus' Bullets Wireless

1More has a stellar lineup of earphones that offer superb sound quality at an unbeatable price. The company's most popular products till date include the 1More Pistons, which Xiaomi licensed and sold at a ridiculously low price, and the 1More Triple Driver earphones, which we think is worth every penny.

Now, it looks like 1More is on a quest to make a wireless variant of all its popular wired ones, so we decided to check out their Dual driver BT earphones. I am not a huge fan of neckband-style earphones as they don't fit into my lifestyle. I'd rather go fully wireless and use something like the Bose SoundSport Free or just use a wired pair of earphones and completely avoid the hassle of dealing with cords.

But I've been using the 1More Stylish Dual Dynamic Driver BT for a week now, and I have to say that it's indeed a winner. To my surprise, I fell head over heels in love with this pair, and let me tell you why.

Here's my review of the 1More Stylish Dual-Dynamic BT earphones:

Design

As I said, I am not a huge fan of neckband-style earphones in general, but I was ready to make an exception for this mainly because my first impressions were fairly positive. Unlike some pair of neckbands, this one has a soft silicone band that blends into the plastic sound chamber. The band itself is not that thick or heavy, so they felt comfortable for the most part. The left chamber houses the button layout which includes a power button and a volume rocker that also doubles up as the previous/next track function. The buttons are clicky and are very easy to get used to, so no complaints there.

The wires, which connect to the earphone housings, are fairly thick. I always prefer thick cables like these as they tend to age well over the thin ones. The earphone housing themselves are bigger than average and they protrude out of your ears when you wear them. The protrusion, however, is given considering the fact that they include two drivers inside.

Thankfully, 1More bundles a bunch of silicone ear-tips inside the box with which you can find a snug fit. Trust me, that's very important because it can make or break your experience of using this pair of earphones. The medium-sized ear-tips, with which the earphones ship with, weren't good enough for me. It wasn't a snug fit and I couldn't hear the base at all. But switching to the large tips did the trick for me, so it's really important that you find the right fit. I can't stress that enough.

How Does It Sound?

This particular earphone, just like many other 1More earphones, is tuned by Grammy award-winning sound engineer, Luca Bignardi. Not that it should influence your purchase decision, but it's definitely something to consider. If I have to put it in simple terms, then I must say that these earphones sound great.

The passive noise isolation, to begin with, is pretty good. I used them primarily during my metro commute and I am happy to report that I couldn't hear all the annoying chatter and announcements around me. Honestly, it made all the difference to me as I could focus on my music at all times.

The drivers are warmer sounding, thanks to the base bump. It's more pronounced in electronic, pop and rap music, and they're all very enjoyable to listen to. The mids are well-presented as well. However, I found them a bit muddy at times. The high, however, are well-detailed and the earphones have a great sound stage with which I was able to make out individual instruments. That's not really a surprise given 1More's reputation. Their products are known for quality among the audiophile community after all.

If I have to compare this pair of earphones with the likes of, say, the OnePlus Bullets wireless or Skullcandy's Ink's Bluetooth wireless earphones, then I'd say I like the 1More's dual-driver BT earphones better. It offers great soundstage, thumping bass, good clarity and everything in between.

It's not all roses when it comes to the sound quality though. The microphone definitely needs some work. The call quality is below average and I found myself switching to phone's earpiece almost every time since the other person couldn't hear me properly.

Charging & Connectivity

The 1More Stylish BT has decent battery life. The company claims that you can listen to music for about 6 hours on a single; however, I was only able to push it to maybe like 4 hours on a single charge. Yes, it's not that impressive, but I am willing to give it a pass mainly due to the fact that it supports fast-charging. Also, it uses a micro-USB cable for charging, which is not a deal-breaker, but definitely worth noting.

You can fully charge the earphones in just about 50 mins. That, in my opinion, is pretty good. But even if you don't have about 50 minutes to spare, I'd suggest you charge it for like 10-15 minutes to get around 2-3 hours of music playback at, say, about 75 per cent volume. Again, that's not too bad given the fact that it packs two drivers to push. That being said, I highly suggest you keep an eye on the battery level of your phone since the voice prompter is very unreliable, and it alerts about the battery being low until it's about to die.

Also, I had paired the 1More Stylish BT with an iPhone XR throughout my testing. These earphones run on Bluetooth v4.2, and I found the connection to be fairly reliable. You can literally leave your phone and move up to 30ft away and still be able to listen to your music. Not too bad, right? I didn't experience any latency issues either while listening to music or while watching videos, so that's great as well.

Is It Worth It?

The 1More Stylish BT is currently retailing for INR 5,499 (https://india.1more.com/collections/earphones-headphones/products/1more-dual-driver-stylish-wireless), which makes it slightly more expensive than the likes of OnePlus Bullets Wireless and the Skullcandy Ink wireless, which I talked about previously. But is it worth the extra money? Well, I'd say yes, especially if you're looking for a pair of bass-heavy neckband-style earphones.

For me personally, these earphones check all the right boxes in the checklist of what makes a pair of wireless earphones good. Yes, it may sound like an expensive proposition, but it's got great audio quality (better than others in this price range), it's nice and comfortable to wear, and it keeps your music isolated from the din of the outside world.
