If superior sound quality for music is your priority, consider the 1More Triple Driver earbuds, which are praised for their audio performance. However, for multitasking and versatility, the Soundcore Life Q30 headphones, with their active noise cancelling feature, make them a more suitable choice for air travel and noisy environments. The Q30s are also wireless and have a significantly longer battery life, which provides convenience and freedom of movement. They have a foldable design for portability, and if you use smartphones, the Q30's app compatibility for customization might be appealing. The 1More earbuds are wired, making them ideal for minimal latency in TV and gaming, but less convenient for exercise and movement-related activities. 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."

"Every once in a while, headphones with an excellent price/performance ratio arrive that truly deserves all attention. Anker Soundcore Life Q30 are one of those headphones. Of course, they aren’t perfect, but they do most things better than their competition. Or they give you the option to make them better."
