If you prefer wired earbuds with a focus on music quality and durability, the 1More Triple Driver earbuds excel in sound, build quality, and have a mic integrated for calls. They don't support wireless use but have excellent sound quality for music and TV. On the other hand, if you're looking for budget-friendly wireless earbuds, Creative Labs Zen Air may suit you. These are particularly suitable for air travel due to their active noise cancelling feature, have a convenient wireless charging option, and are sweatproof, making them a decent choice for exercise, but their sound quality might not be as high as the 1More for music and gaming.

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."

Headphone Check

Maike Paeßens | February 2023
"The Creative Zen Air’s weak points are its low battery life and rather short Bluetooth range. On the other hand, the strengths of these weatherproof True Wireless in-Ears are the sound and the wide attenuation of the Active Noise Cancellation. Considering the price range, the speech intelligibility during calls is also exceptionally good."
