The 1More Triple Driver earbuds are significantly less expensive than the Apple AirPods Max, providing good value if budget is a concern. They are earbuds with a closed design and include a microphone, but lack noise canceling. On the other hand, the Apple AirPods Max are high-end over-ear headphones with better sound isolation due to active noise cancellation and generally offer higher sound quality. The AirPods Max also have a microphone and are suitable if you're looking for premium headphones with advanced features. Consider the 1More if you need something affordable and portable, or the AirPods Max for top-tier audio and noise-cancellation in a headphone format. Give Feedback

Adam Molina | April 2022
"For under $99 USD this has a good sound that, when paired with the build quality and design, makes for a solid pair of everyday buds. Should you get them? If you’re tired of buying cheap earbuds and want to treat yourself to something a little nicer, I say go for it."

"Objectively, the AirPods Max is a spectacular pair of headphones. I appreciate the smart features like auto-pause and the transparency mode are super practical. It also sounds great, is well-built, and has solid battery life."
