The 1More Triple Driver earbuds are wired, providing a reliable connection, and they're praised for their comfort and build quality; however, they lack wireless capabilities and have modest noise isolation. Alternatively, the Beats Powerbeats Pro are wireless, offer better sound quality, and are suitable for exercise due to sweatproof certification, with a longer battery life that enhances portability. The Powerbeats also have better controls and are optimized for Apple devices, which could be beneficial if you're in that ecosystem. Your choice should depend on your preference for wired vs. wireless, sound quality, budget, and intended activity use. 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."

"Sweat resistance, actual noise isolation, and a secure fit in your ears make these the true wireless earphones you want in Apple-land. Android users may find other options they like better, as these only support AAC."
