If you value comfort and sound quality for music and gaming, the 1More Triple Driver earbuds are an excellent choice, especially as they are somewhat less expensive than the Beats Solo 3. They offer a wired connection, which provides a more reliable audio signal with no latency issues. However, for portability, battery life, and convenience, particularly if you prefer wireless technology and an optimized experience for Apple devices, the Beats Solo 3 headphones would suit you better. The Beats also fold for easy transport and have active noise cancelling, making them a better choice for traveling and use in noisy environments. 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."

"The Beats Solo3 Wireless is an old set of headphones but still works reliably well with iPhones, due to W1 chip integration and AAC support. The Beats Solo3 Wireless holds up well today with just a few features showing its age."
