If you're on a budget and want something with a wired connection that provides strong sound quality for music and is great for comfort, the 1More Triple Driver could be your choice, plus they are noted for having excellent build and control quality. However, they are not suited for exercise, travel, or noisy environments as they lack active noise cancelling and aren't sweatproof. On the other hand, the JBL Live Flex 3 is pricier but has wireless capability with low latency and a sweatproof design, making it better for exercise and an active lifestyle. They also offer an innovative Smart Charging Case with touch display for controls. If you're looking for advanced features like app customization, wireless charging, active noise cancelling, and optimization for both Android and Apple devices, the JBL Live Flex 3 would be a superior choice, despite the higher price.

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."
