You might not realize it when you look at a pair of tiny in-ear headphones or earbuds, but it’s an extraordinarily challenging engineering task to squeeze all the elements necessary for quality sound reproduction into such a small device. A big speaker has its own challenges, of course, but miniaturization is incredibly tough. Which is why it’s so remarkable how 1More‘s design team has managed to get not one, not two, not even three, but four different drivers (basically tiny speakers) into each of the ear pieces of the brand-new quad driver in-ear headphones.
But not only have they figured out how to make some sweet sounding, full, rich in-ear headphones, but they come with the traditional 1More packaging. It’s not just earbuds in a tiny plastic box, it’s in a gift box with leather traveling case, 9 different ear tip sizes, 1/4-inch and airline adapters and even a matching shirt clip for the wire.
I couldn’t resist making a video review where I show exactly what’s included and talk about the splendid sound reproduction:
Let’s look at the engineering a bit more, however, with this breakaway illustration from the company. It’s interesting, but it’s also really cool, showing just how much is squeezed in:
Ultimately it’s all about the sound, of course, and I can only say that they’re some of the best in-ear units we’ve had the chance to audition here at AskDaveTaylor HQ.
