The 1More Triple Driver earbuds are significantly less expensive and are a more comfortable, portable choice with good sound quality for their price, which makes them suitable for daily use, calls, and music enjoyment. However, if you prioritize the best sound experience for music and video and don't mind spending more, the HifiMan Edition XS headphones offer exceptional sound quality and an open-back design, but they are less portable and not as versatile for exercising or traveling due to their larger size and open enclosure.

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."

Headphonesty

Eric D Hieger | January 2023
"The Edition XS easily compete with headphones in their price range with a very high price-to-performance ratio. The XS are an amazing value and offer performance not far off from headphones more than twice their cost. These will be a mind-blowing revelation for enthusiasts and music lovers who have only heard standard big-brand mainstream headphones."
