If you prioritize overall sound quality and microphone performance during calls and meetings, the HyperX Cloud II headphones would be the better choice as they also have virtual surround which enhances gaming and movie experiences. However, if you desire something lightweight and more portable for on-the-go listening, the 1More Triple Driver earbuds would be your pick, since they are also better suited for exercise due to their form factor. Keep in mind, the 1More Triple Driver lacks noise cancellation and might not block out ambient noise as effectively as the closed over-ear design of the HyperX Cloud II. Both have a similar price and wired connectivity, so your preference for form factor and specific use cases should guide your decision. 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."
