The cost of a good pair of headphones has been steadily declining over the past few years, just as we’ve all started spending more on headphones. This apparent contradiction is explained by a shift in expectations: where we previously spent a pittance and expected little, we’re now being more generous in our pursuit of greater convenience and enjoyment, which in turn is stimulating companies to invest in new and more economical ways of making better products. One such company is Shenzhen’s 1More, a five-year-old outfit without a marketing budget or much of a profit margin that hopes to win just by offering superb sound at an unbeatable price. The company’s best-known product to date is the 1More Pistons, which Xiaomi licensed and sold at a ridiculous $20 price (now selling for $10).
Now, Xiaomi has licensed another 1More listening device and this time, it is the Xiaomi 1More E1026BT – 1 Wireless In-ear Earbuds which is selling for a meager $69.19 (of course when you considers what it offers). This Bluetooth earpiece comes with high-speed transmission and crystal clear sound quality for iOS and Android devices. All the good ergonomics that about this Bluetooth earpiece is associated with its titanium composite dynamic driver. The travel case is the same, both pairs come with an abundance of tips (including soft foam ones), and the extra driver doesn’t add anything to the weight.
It uses a 7mm dynamic driver with titanium composite diaphragm which balances powerful bass and exquisite detail. It produces crystal clear sound in an ultra-compact design for enhanced efficiency. With the associated high stability MEMS microphone + DSP technology, you can communicate in loud environments as if you were talking face-to-face. Interestingly, the LDS antenna ensures that you experience less signal interference and transmission with a smooth connection for music and phone calls.
With the dual Bluetooth pairing modes, you can utilize standard Bluetooth pairing with both earpieces for an immersive music listening experience, or single Bluetooth Pairing with the right earbud convenient for phone calls or smartphone usage. The 45-degree oblique-angled nozzles naturally match the curve of your ear canals for a tight and secure fit. In addition, a silicone O-hook provides a more stable fit when you are on the move. Finally, we look at the battery, it uses a 55 mAh battery while the charging bin offers another 410 mAh power.
