Given your consideration of cost, the 1More Triple Driver earbuds are significantly less expensive and could be a great choice if you're on a budget. They offer excellent comfort, sound quality, and are suitable for wired use, which is perfect for high-fidelity listening or if wireless connectivity isn't a priority for you. However, the Bowers and Wilkins Pi5 S2, while more expensive, provide superior noise isolation, battery life, and are wireless with features like active noise cancelling and sweatproof certification, making them more versatile for travel, exercise, and uninterrupted listening. Although their overall sound quality is rated higher, the Bowers and Wilkins might not be necessary if you don't need wireless features and want to save money. 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."

Major HiFi

Chris Golembeski | January 2023
"Bowers and Wilkins isn’t looking to make an obscure, premium wireless bud catered specifically towards audiophiles. Instead, it seems apparent that they’re going for the crown: a cool and popular look, an easy and comfortable fit, and an engaging stage with a great balance that is perfectly suited for mainstream listeners and audiophiles alike."
