If you prioritize overall sound quality and a wider soundstage for an immersive experience in music listening, you may prefer the Audio Technica ATH M30X. They lack a microphone, which might not be ideal for calls, but their closed, over-ear design provides good noise isolation for listening in various environments. However, they are bulkier and less portable than earbuds. The 1More Triple Driver earbuds offer balanced audio but with a lower overall sound quality compared to the Audio Technicas; they do include a microphone, making them versatile for calls and better suited for use during exercise due to their lightweight, compact design. Neither option supports wireless connectivity, so consider the convenience of wires in your usage. 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."

Soundguys

Jasper Lastoria | August 2023
"The Audio-Technica ATH-M30x is a great choice for anybody that needs a decent set of over-ear studio monitors. While the frequency response is not totally spot on, it works for basically every situation reasonably well. The sound quality and reasonably good comfort promote its candidacy as a great pick for $69 USD."
