The 1More Triple Driver earbuds offer a solid overall sound quality and superior comfort, which is excellent for extended listening sessions. They also have a built-in microphone with a decent quality for calls. On the other hand, the Etymotic ER2SE earbuds deliver outstanding sound quality and superior noise isolation, making them great for immersive music experiences and environments where you need to block out external sound. However, they might be less comfortable over long periods due to a deeper insertion into the ear canal. Neither option supports wireless connectivity, but both are highly portable. If you prioritize comfort and call quality during use, the 1More may suit you better, whereas if sound quality and noise isolation are your top considerations, the Etymotic ER2SE could be the right choice, despite being somewhat more expensive.

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."

Sound Guys

Lily Katz | April 2022
"Etymotic isn’t playing around: it takes audio seriously and has mastered the art of the noise-isolation earphone. Sure, the fit of the earbuds looks silly but it’s a signature Etymotic thing and could be considered charming by some. If you’re looking for best-in-class audio for a realistic price, the ER2SE is it."
