In-ear headphones that come in at under £100 are increasingly improving in quality but there’s already a pair of in-ear headphones from 1more that is the quintessential balance between being premium and affordable. The word “budget” is only applicable to the actual price; everything else just exudes quality. For the price point, it’s simply unthought-of that you can get a product of such premium build quality. Perhaps the best thing was discovering that there are no noticeable corners cut to meet this price either. Put frankly, if I didn’t know the actual price beforehand, I would easily just assume this pair of in-ear headphones was somewhere in the £200+ range.
Who is 1More?
1MORE is a premiere consumer electronics audio company headquartered in Milton Keynes,UK.and an affiliate company of 1MORE Inc which is dedicated to introducing 1MORE headphones to customers in the UK and European countries.With Nordic design of simplicity and elegance,superior quality and affordable price,we aim to provide the best customer experience through online and offline.

It’s immediately apparent that 1More has taken considerable care to the packaging that these 1More triple driver in-ear headphones arrive in. Put frankly, I’ve never seen a product packaged with such premium quality at this price point. These earbuds come packaged in a high quality ‘book’ style of packaging that’s very clean and attractive. In terms of functionality, this also packs with it the carrying case, wires, clothing clip, different ear tips etc. in a very clean fashion. The carrying case, in particular, was welcomingly high-quality leather with a magnetic closure mechanism.
Not only is the overall presentation slick, it borders on luxury. Seriously, for under £100, this could easily be mistaken for a product worth upwards of 5 times that thanks to the packaging. Everything from the style down to the magnetic latch just exudes an amount of premium that was previously unthought of at this price.

First of all, it’s mightily impressive that the E1001 model here from 1More makes use of triple driver technology. This is absolutely key in delivering a loud and engulfing sound whilst also maintaining the intimacy of the sound. With more drivers dedicated to covering specific portions of the audio frequency spectrum, you get a much richer sound. I think the biggest difference you might notice between a pair of Triple Driver headphones like these and dual or single pairs is the difference in the mids and lows, something which ensures a fuller and richer sound. If it’s possible to deliver this high-fidelity triple driver sound at under £100 then that’s nothing short of an absolute steal.
Look and feel
One this is absolutely certain with the 1More triple driver in-ear headphones; everything about these earbuds feel extremely premium. Even at the price point they retail it, they easily look and feel like a much more expensive product. There’s a perceptible luxury to these earphones with a beautifully finished aluminum casing and Kevlar-reinforced cable assures that these things are built to last. The materials are of a high quality and the overall build quality is pristine. These things aren’t going to be flimsy or break anytime soon, that, I can assure you. The design is elegant and I have to say I’m still stunned that 1More have managed to pack so much luxury into this pair of in-ear headphones with zero noticeable cutbacks, it’s a marvel of their manufacturing.
Ultimately, there’s not a bad thing to be said about these in-ear headphones. Where other competitors make cutbacks aplenty to reach an attractive price point like this, the 1More triple driver makes no such cutbacks and delivers incredible sound in a tight, clean and elegant package. It’s a real treat to see in-ear headphones that, upon first glance, I might have assumed to be easily hundreds of pounds more, are actually retailed at <£100. This is easy; if you’re in the market for a new pair of in-ear headphones, absolutely buy the 1More triple drivers.
