If you're prioritizing sound quality for music, the 1More Triple Drivers might be a worthier investment due to their higher overall sound quality; however, the Koss Porta Pro headphones may provide you with a more satisfying soundstage, which could enhance your listening experience. If you often engage in calls or meetings, neither option excels, but the 1More includes a mic whereas the Porta Pro does not. On the comfort front, the 1More boasts a perfect comfort score. For gaming, TV, and video, the 1More is recommended. Neither are suitable for high-intensity exercise or air travel, yet the 1More might offer slightly better noise isolation, although not by a significant margin. 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."
