The 1More Triple Driver earbuds are generally appreciated for their exceptional sound quality due to their triple driver design, offering detailed and balanced audio. They suit music enthusiasts looking for portable, high-fidelity earbuds. The Soundcore Life Q20 headphones, on the other hand, have active noise cancellation (ANC), enhancing the listening experience in noisy environments by reducing background noise. They are better suited for commuters or office workers who value a quiet listening space. However, the Triple Driver earbuds are likely to offer better sound clarity than the Q20, while the Q20 provides the additional benefits of over-ear comfort and longer battery life due to their larger size. Consider your priorities: if sound quality is paramount, go for the 1More Triple Drivers; if you want noise cancellation and potentially better battery life, the Soundcore Life Q20 may be the better option.

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."

Sound Guys

Christian Thomas | January 2022
"As far as headphones that cost under $100 go, the Anker Soundcore Life Q20 is a really solid option. Like any good tool, it does the job well without much guff, and it’s affordable to boot. Sure: it’s not going toe to toe with any of the higher-end models of ANC headphones out there—but the headphones do well enough for commuters that it’s a good stand-in if you were never planning on spending a bunch of money anyway."
