Ever since smartphones started losing their 3.5-mm audio jacks, wireless headphones have been drawing a lot of interest from users who listen to music on the go. In fact, they're currently one of the bestselling and fastest growing products in all of tech, which nobody would have dared to predict just two or three years ago. With that being said, it should come as no surprise that 1MORE decided to upgrade their famous Triple Driver In-Ears (reviewed here) with Bluetooth connectivity and reissue them in 2018. In case you missed them last year, you'll be interested to find out that they're widely regarded as one of the best choices for anyone who's after a pair of wired in-ear headphones in the $100 price category.
Aside from the aforementioned Bluetooth connectivity, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ears offer almost everything else you might need from a good pair of wireless in-ear headphones. They're based on a neckband design, come with a hefty bundle, are equipped with a quick-charging feature, and can communicate with the sound source by using LDAC—the most advanced Bluetooth codec for audio transmission. In case your phone doesn't support it, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ears will automatically revert to the SBC codec, or AAC, assuming they're connected to an iOS device. Compared to the wired Triple Driver In-Ears, they're twice as expensive (or 40% more expensive if you're buying them in Europe), coming in at $199/€140. Let's find out if they're worth it!
1MORE traditionally takes exceptional care when it comes to the design of their product boxes. This one is no exception. The 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ears are packed inside a sturdy, foldable white and gray box whose front and back show off the headphones and specs.
The inner side of the foldable flap is covered in sketches that give us a bit of an insight on how these headphones came to be. This is standard practice for 1MORE, and I've grown really fond of!
Here's everything you'll find neatly organized inside the box: the headphones, a user manual, some stickers, a carrying pouch, USB-C charging cable, and grand total of eight replacement ear tips, lined up by size and material.
