1MORE Dual Driver BT ANC Review: Truly Premium Sound And Design

1MORE Dual Driver ANC BT Headset

1MORE is quickly becoming a very solid and reliable player in the headphones and audio segment. Every one of their products has thoughtful features and design. They have been consistently pushing out great products one after the other. I recently spent a lot of time using the 1MORE Dual Driver Bluetooth Active Noise Cancellation in-ear headphones and here is my review of this headset.

If you are looking for a pair of wireless in-ear headphones that have nose cancelling to totally immerse you in your music? The 1 MORE Dual Driver BT ANC are a great buy. Not only do they have noise cancelling built-in they also have a handy pass-through mode that helps you quickly let outside sounds in – ideal if you’re waiting to hear an announcement at a train station or traffic noise when crossing the road. The neckband design ensures you can pop the headphones out of your ears and not worry about losing. As an extra layer of protection, the ear buds are magnetic and will even clip together.

ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) is a feature that is usually found on large over the ear headphones and that too in the premium segment. 1MORE’s latest dual-driver BT ANC is amongst the first neckband style wireless headphones to offer ANC and that too at a great price.

Now, let us get to what all this means for you when you are using the 1MORE ANC BT in-ear headphones. Because, at the end of the day, the proof is in the pudding. So how does the sound from the 1MORE ANC BT In-Ear headphones match up?

This headset has very pronounced and good physical dynamic impact (kick factor/slam). With that very smooth signature you also get a longing for more depth to the response itself over time and I could see that this one delivers brilliant depth to the response.

I’ve found that this one remains relatively smooth up to +4dB. And that is a good thing if you want your smoothness factor.I was unable to detect any bleed into the mids and no serious problems at all when boosted. You can get a smidgen more, but not much, when EQ’ed. What that means is bass and mids are clearly differentiated and delivered. And for you, it’s like rediscovering your music library again.

If mellow is the genre of sound or music that you enjoy, well, look no further. This is a fantastic headset for kicking back and relaxing with some old school vocals, Big Band genre types and  some good old Sinatra if you get what I mean. Quality is sublime for the price and it amazes me how 1MORE has been consistently delivered over time here. Fidelity is great and impressive for this headset in the mid-range, clean and crisp. This headset very definitely gets a massive thumbs up for offering a nicely subdued, calming effect when listening to mid-centered music. I like it.

1MORE seems to ensure that you get the tune with style and class, and the subtle flare is also impressive. With this headset, the dynamic slam is low, which then leads to the set feeling  getting more relaxed. And that is a good thing. The quality factor for the price is just impressive to say it in one word. Absolutely no complains at all. Very nearly perfect.

If you are an audiophile and someone who believes that your headset is your window into clear and crisp musical experiences, this one is definitely for you. At a price of ₹ 10,749  the 1MORE ANC BT is undoubtedly the Best-in-class headset with active noise cancelling. It has my vote for the best one I have used so far.
