Hey gang, Valkor here. And we're back with one more review from the gang at 1More. This round we'll be taking a look at their Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones. And I'm mixed because on different devices I get a different experience. But overall, while not packing the same punch as the Stylish True Wireless, you're getting a pretty decent set of headphones at an affordable price.
The Triple Driver Headphones are of the wired variety and sport a sweet design with the buds angled inwards when placed in the ear for a solid fit. The bulk of the connecting cable is fabric, but upwards towards the remote and the buds the cord is plastic. Yes, there's an in-line remote/mic that will allow you to play/pause, raise/lower the volume, and make/receive calls. But what's most impressive about the headphones isn't the headphones at all, it's the box they come in. Talk about being extra (not a negative), you get a wooden-style box with everything neatly laid out. Even the extra tips are nicely lined up with a label on the type of each tip. Any other company just tosses them in a plastic bag and call it a day. But this layout is a thing of beauty!
So let's dive right into the testing portion of the review. And I went with two devices, which initially started out as one. I started out with the Galaxy Note 9, and it was here that I wasn't feeling the buds. Depending on the quality of music, the clarity wasn't all the way there, especially at the higher volumes. The audio was still pretty sweet if you tuned the volume down just right, especially the bass. But it wasn't the experience I was expecting when dealing with a 1More product.
Afterward, I switched over to my laptop and here is where the Triple Driver headphones shined. It was still not the perfect, immersive experience that I was used to but everything sounds so much better. The bass is where it hits and the best example of that would be Ariana Grande's “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored” (such a title); I've had the song on loop for an hour. But then I realized it would sound so much better with the Spearhead VR. And that's when I got all kinds of off track from this review! So, how does 1More Triple Driver headphones ultimately fare? Let's find out in the TOV Breakdown.
I've been hooked on Bluetooth headphones for quite some time. But occasionally it's alright to dip back into a more traditional pair. And while 1More's Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones won't blow the roof off of my eardrums, they're still pretty decent. And they'll get you from point A to point B in a sweet audio bubble. Sound quality wise, the Triple Driver headphones offer up an adequate audio experience with a nice level of bass and its pretty clear on the vocals. But that's if you keep the volume in the mid-range (especially true with the Note 9). Anything higher than it distorts. However, I didn't get that when I plugged into my laptop, which offered up a richer bass and better clarity on the vocals. Overall, the Triple Driver headphones are great for your commute and is an excellent choice for as a backup pair.
First up, you can't take the volume up to high, especially on a mobile device. At least that was my experience with the Note 9. It could be the quality of my MP3s (yep I still use them), but even the higher quality tunes didn't sound so great. Second, vocals came across a little muffled; this goes on either device (mobile or laptop). Finally, quality wise, things sounded a little canned. This is more on the Note 9, but some songs were a little canny on the laptop as well.
In the end, if you're looking for a pretty decent pair of headphones to keep on hand for a commute, a chill day at home, or even if you're about to take a trip, you'd be in good hands with 1More's Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones. I might have tossed in a few negatives, but I still enjoyed my experience. And should anyone decide to pick up a pair, I doubt you'll be too disappointed. So, out of TOV 5 stars, I'm giving 1More Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones 3 stars.
