If you prioritize sound quality and are willing to invest in high-quality audio reproduction, the 1More Triple Driver earbuds would be a better choice, as they generally offer superior sound with richer details and deeper bass compared to Apple Earpods. However, if you're looking for a more affordable, straightforward solution for casual listening without deep concern for audiophile-level quality, Apple Earpods may suit your needs. Keep in mind that the Earpods will integrate more seamlessly with Apple devices, offering convenience if you use these gadgets. On the other hand, the Triple Driver earbuds may have additional features like multiple drivers for improved sound, which could justify the higher price for avid music enthusiasts. Give Feedback

Sound Guys

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."

CNN Underscored

Michael Andronico | May 2023
"Apple’s wired buds sound just fine for the price, and their handy inline controls and clear microphone give them an edge on wireless earbuds that are much more expensive. Plus, you never have to worry about running out of battery — or worse, a stray earbud going missing."
