1More is a company that has glowing reputation for making best bang for the buck products. With many requests for this review, I contacted 1More myself many time but received no response so I am going to give it a terrible review ! Jokes aside, I was fortunate enough to have one of my dear friend in the audio industry lend me their pair for the purpose of this review. I am skeptical of these cheaply priced multiple driver iems or headphones as much as I am skeptical of the expensive ones. With that being said, I did not expect much going into this, given that these were only $99 with triple drivers inside. I mean, imagine the corners they had to cut to bring the price down that much and still make profit. Short story shorter… they did not cut that many corners.
This unit was lent to me by a friend in the audio industry for this review. I will be crying when I return them.

WHERE DO I BUY IT?
*Note: I was not provided with the full packaging and therefore do not know what else is included*
Pros: Aluminum housing with angled tips that feels premium in your ears.
Best carrying case for practicality and durability.
Cons: Tip may not fit for small ears, but if noble x or lz a4 fit you, it will be fine. nondetachable cable.
For $99, best build quality I’ve seen, period.
THE FIT: Fits perfectly for my ears and I have average ears. Very comfortable in your ears, does not penetrate deep into your ears but stay in its place without falling off or being unstable
SOUND ISOLATION: Sound isolation is as good as the fit. If you can a good fit, these will isolate great. Outside noise isolates well too.
PAIRING: These are not hard to drive, they are driven well with a phone or a digital audio player, with latter being preferred due to better sound quality.
SUGGESTED USE: You can use these anywhere as you please, just not anywhere near your mom when she’s talking to you as you will get smacked for not answering.
LOWS – punchy and well extended. Clean and fast. Does not extend as much as the LZ A4 but goes head to head with the punchy and clean bass that the noble x has.
MIDS – Present but not midcentric like the noble x or lz a4 (with certain filters)
HIGHS – Well extended with a sparkle and airiness. Not the best treble by any means but first in this price range to give that wow factor.
- Sound stage is inmate but imaging and separation is excellent and excels at this price range.
For what you pay for, you are getting a well rounded iem that does not excel in particular areas comp
