If you value comfort and built-in controls for ease of use, the 1More Triple Driver is a great choice, also offering better sound quality for gaming along with a lower price. However, if noise isolation and build quality are your top priorities, and you're willing to invest more, then the Etymotic ER4XR would better suit your needs, despite not featuring a microphone or built-in controls which might affect their convenience during calls or controlling your music. Neither option supports wireless connectivity, so both are better suited for wired use cases. 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."

What HiFi?

What HiFi? | May 2015
"The Etymotic ER4XRs' top qualities are the detail and definition of the midrange, rewarding the closest listening. While the soundstage is large rather than gigantic, the excellent separation and spatial precision mean you can dive deep into music just as much as when wearing a pair of full-size open-backed headphones."
