If you prioritize sound quality and want earbuds that are generally more affordable, the 1More Triple Driver would be a better choice; they have a reputation for excellent audio performance. However, the Beats EP, being on-ear headphones, may offer a more comfortable fit and potentially greater noise isolation. The design choice between earbuds and on-ear headphones is also a consideration: earbuds are more portable and inconspicuous, but on-ear headphones sit on your ears and can be more stylish and stable during activities. Neither have active noise cancellation, so consider your need for quiet listening environments when making your decision. 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."
