It has been quite a while since I reviewed a 1More product, and I was very pleased to review something new from them for the holidays. The 1More company is very good at making headphones and earbuds that are of a higher quality than the standard, and the Dual Driver LTNG ANC In-Ear Headphones are of that great standard.
So where to begin…hmm. Let’s start with ANC, and what it stands for, which is Active Noise Cancellation. It seems that 1More excels at this, and it is made for reducing noises on an airplane, car, or train. For those that care about these numbers, it has a frequency range of 50-2000 Hz with 20 db Reduction. Apparently, they have five-stars in noise reduction performance and multiple environments, and yeah, I took that from their website.
It all boils down to some terrific sound that is expected from this company. Then there is the dual driver sound with a one balanced armature along with one dynamic driver which works like a mini-tweeter and dynamic driver respectively.
There is also a feature that includes a 5-in-1 controller that feels really unique to me. For a call, you just hit it in the center to answer/hang up, and press and hold to reject a call. As for the music, you hit it in the center to play, toggle left for the previous track, and toggle right for the next track. You can also control the volume and take phone calls.
All of this is put in a very great design package with lightweight alloys and made specifically with the Apple Lightning connector in mind, which is why it won a design award this year. You should be able to purchase them on the 1More Site for $149.99.
Well, we have one more 1More product to review, and instead of earbuds, we have the MK801 Over-Ear Headphones with In-Line Microphone and Remote. This one is for those who want to be more closed off with the music or audio content, as the over-ear headphone design blocks out the ambient noise. Yes, it is pretty good. by the way, the earcups rotate in four directions, allowing for maximum customization.
The headband is made of some TR-90 titanium steel, and I am told that it has an ergonomic design plus made for the “stretching required for daily use”. I suppose that some stretching is going to happen when you use this, so use a very quality product, for gosh’s sake!
It also has the dual-system in-line remote control, allowing for control on Apple and Android. Then that Grammy Award winning mixer Luca Bignardi, helped with the final tuning.
About the only thing I can suggest for an improvement is to make it Bluetooth. That might be a product for another time. If you want this wired product now, it is available for about $79.99 on the 1More site and Amazon.
Well, it looks like we have another chance to try out 1More products, so I’ll go with the Multi-Unit Ear Headphones. Unlike the Triple Driver that I reviewed yesterday, this one is a dual driver. I’m told that they have a patented triple layer diaphragm constructed with aerospace-grade metal for high resolution sound and balanced frequency ranges. That is similar to the Swarvoski crystal earbuds that I reviewed two days ago.
So, yes, there are a lot of similarities between this pair of earbuds and the other two that I mentioned before. For example, it is designed in collaboration with that Grammy Award winning mixer Luca Bignardi, plus it has that intelligent control technology with both Apple and Android devices. Oh, and it has that oblique angle for precise ergonomic design.
I would say that the sound is the same, but honestly, my ears aren’t fine-tuned mechanical instruments. So I’ll just go with what they say: “achieve full-freqeuncy range by combining a dynamic driver for powerful bass and a balanced armature for refined mid range and treble”. Yeah, that sounds about right.
Well, tomorrow, we are going to review some actual headband-type headphones. You can purchase it at the 1More site and Amazon for about $79.99.
Time once again for us to revisit 1More, and this time, I’m going to talk about the Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones with In-line Microphone and Remote.
It’s going to be had for me not to compare these earbuds with the Swavorksi that I reviewed yesterday, and I will say that they were tuned by the Grammy Award Winning Sound Engineer Luca Bignardi, and that will probably be the last time that I say that if the other two products that I review say the same thing. Oh, it also has the in-line remote control for both Apple and Android, and the Kevlar cable that is probably another 1More standard.
Let’s talk about the three drivers, with two balanced armatures and a separate dynamic driver. Yeah, they work together to produce what I call “pretty cool sound”. Yeah, I could probably use some other adjectives and adverbs, but needless to say, it has the 1More quality. It also has a lightweight aluminum alloy body that helps out the design as well.
This would be a good time to talk about the Ergonomic design, as they have an “oblique angle” made to “naturally match your ear canals”. Yeah, I quoted that, but can you blame me? Look at the angle they are at within the image that I included here.
Anyway, if you like it, click here to find out more information, and it is possible to order it on Amazon as well.
Well, this week will be a week of 1More, because I am reviewing one of their products per day, seriously. I’m not certain why they are called 1More, but I will say that their first product that I will be reviewing, the Dual Pack Swarovski Crystal In-Ear Headphones has one more pair of headphones.
That’s right, there are two. What differs between the two of them are the Swarovski crystal colors: one pink and one black. They crystals have what is called “chessboard faceting”, meaning it is a lot of squares like a chess board.
Not only does it look good on the outside, but it is made of some aerospace-grade metal composite diaphragm for all kinds of music with a cool frequency range and some great bass. I might as well take this time and talk about how the headphones were tuned by a Grammy Award winning mixer named Luca Bignardi.
The wiring is also a winner as it uses Strong Kevlar fibers for some excess durability which promises to increase the lifespan, and it reduces tangles as well as that “stethoscope effect” that happens with noise interference. By the way, there is an in-line remote control that is compatible with iOS, but might do something odd depending on your Android model of smartphone. Of course, this type of control is pretty standard for most headphone/earbuds these days.
You can find out more information about this product here, and order it there or on Amazon for about $79.99.
