If you prefer earbuds and are looking for a more budget-friendly option, the 1More Triple Driver offers a good balance of sound quality and comfort for music listening, but may not be ideal for calls and meetings or exercises. Conversely, the Bose Quiet Comfort 45 headphones are pricier but deliver superior noise isolation, making them excellent for air travel and environments where blocking out external sound is important; they also have active noise-cancelling technology and longer battery life, which enhances their utility in various settings, including calls and meetings, although they might be less suitable for gaming and watching TV due to possible latency issues.

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."

What HiFi?

What HiFi? | November 2022
"If you want a set of wireless over-ear headphones you can put on, deploy noise-cancelling on your commute or at your desk and largely extinguish the outside world for up to 24 hours, the Bose QC 45 has the edge over most of the competition at the price."
