1More Evo... Reviewed!

Before we jump in... let's unbox!
Shout out to the team at 1More for supplying this product for a review. My opinions are my own.
_______________________________________________________________

1More is back at it again with their latest flagship earbuds... the 1More Evo. These just look and feel like... luxury, like something you would see Rick Ross wearing in a music video. That said, let's jump in to see how these fashion-friendly earbuds actually measure up for the price.

Quality + Comfort: The 1More TWS headphones came to mind initially when I took the 1More Evo out of the box. I love those earbuds, but... the 1More Evo is a smarter version (I'll get back to that in the features segment below). I was able to slip these into my ears without changing the ear tips, but the smaller size fits even better which improves the quality of sound (because they actually fit the way they're supposed to). 

By the way, you don't just slip these into your ears, when you place them in... tilt the top part of the headphones back and push the silicone ear tip into your ear further. I mention this because you will notice that they fit more securely once this is done and the sound will be even better.

One thing I noticed during this review also is that I haven't had to prepare to catch these or push these earbuds back in my ear to make sure they didn't fall out. I won't say that it can't happen, especially while out in the heat for a longer period of time... but I haven't experienced it yet (even after breaking a sweat).

My tolerance for these earbuds is solid, and this is someone who came from the position of not enjoying earbuds at all. It's certainly based on the type of earbuds and their ear tips because... I enjoy them now. I've been able to wear these headphones for hours, at least 5 to 6 hours. I've literally slept with these in my ear for ASMR action and found myself laying partially on my ear at times with no discomfort. There was a bit of pressure laying directly on them, but I haven't found earbuds that eliminate the discomfort completely.

When it comes to the headphone case, you can tell or easily assume that the earbuds are quality. The case is metal with a matte black finish with 1More etched in gold on the top of the case. When you open the case, you see the left and right earbuds that look like jewelry. It's a clear reflective exterior as you see here with a gold outline + the 1More logo in the middle. You get the standard durable plastic body on the rest of the body, which works... because if it were like the face of the exterior it would be a slip n slide fest. Like with the 1More TWS headphones the case is a similar tall flatter case that slips into your pocket which works great for placing it in or out with ease.

The only thing I can poke at in terms of comfort is something simple, (don't laugh) it takes me a few tries to get these out of the case. I feel like I get a good grip and then they slip right back inside, there's a certain way to shift them to take them out... but I have to get used to it.

Another thing that you will find that's quality is the actual case, it's quite sturdy and contains the final sketches on the interior of the box (which never gets old because they're different for each product).

Sound: When it comes to sound quality, the 1More Evo knocks it out of the park (damn good sound). Shout out to Luca Bignardi (Grammy Award-Winning Sound Engineer) for tuning these headphones to the degree that he has. By the way, (and i'm not crapping on these other headphones but) Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 has a 7mm TrueResponse dynamic driver, and the B&O Beoplay EQ has a 6.8mm Electro-Dynamic driver, while the 1More Evo has a 10mm Dynamic Driver with a Balanced Armature.

Again, I'm not crapping on these... and I really enjoy B&O (I just tested tech in the new Ford Edge Titanium that had B&O), but dollar to dollar I have to give it to 1More (and I haven't gotten to the price tag yet). I haven't found anything in regards to the lows, mids, and highs to really point out where anything could use some work to be honest. If audio is bad, it's the recording (I had to search for a few tracks because you can tell when someone did a bad recording), you have a frequency response from 20Hz to 40kHz in these headphones and the audio I've experienced has been sweet.

I went on a sound spree listening to various music tracks, DTS + Dolby Demos, movies, and games with these earbuds that build upon the THX Certified dual driver design (on the 1More TWS). I was able to enjoy these without interruption by activating the ANC, which eliminated the sound from the AC and the PC so nothing got in the way of my audio experience. Explosions and audio are things i'm definitely a sucker for when it comes to my audio, but... I also love my ASMR that puts me at ease as I sail off into dreamland thinking happy thoughts of tomorrow.


Join me on this sound spree:

Rick Ross - Little Havana
Steely Dan - Black Cow
Busta Rhymes - Calm Down ft Eminem
Gerald Albright - What you see is what you get
Kanye West - Life Of The Party ft Andre 3000
Kendrick Lamar - The Heart Part 5
Windbound
Pinball FX
The Gunk
Tunic
Snake Eyes: GI Joe Origins (even though I didn't care for the movie)
The Hitman's Bodyguard
Stargirl: Summer School
Batman (2022)

I can't forget about the call quality. My voice is on the deeper side, but I don't have to raise my voice with these headphones. The call quality isn't bad, but the quality has to also be on the other end... even though that's not on the earbuds.


In the box + Features: As seen in the unboxing... you get the 1More Evo Earbuds, charging case, USB-C cable, 4 additional sets of silicon ear tips, the 1More sticker, and the manual.

Features include:

QuietMax ANC Technology
3 Mics Per Earbud + Deep Neural Network Algorithm
Bluetooth 5.2
LDAC / AAC / SBC Codecs
L/R Simultaneous Transmission + Dual Device Connection
Auto Pairing
Waterproof - IPX4
Touch Control

Battery Life 8hours without the charging case / 28 with charging case
Qi-Certified wireless charging
10mm Dynamic Driver + Balanced Armature
Noise cancellation depth up to 42dB 

Going back to the dual device connection, it's definitely a plus. If you want to connect to another device like your PC, tablet, or smart TV... it's a plus to be able to do that easy shift. The 1More Evo allows you to connect without having to switching one connection for another, and the features are truly a noticeable step up from the 1More TWS even if those are excellent earbuds. By the way, Cameron from the 1More team gave me the steps to make the dual device connection possible (since it doesn't do it right out of the box at this time, you have to turn on the feature):

Instructions: 
  1. Connect earbuds to phone with 1MORE Music App
  2. Tap on the 1MORE logo on the upper right hand corner
  3. Tap on Experimental Features
  4. Toggle Dual-device connection
  5. Connect earbuds with other device

I can't forget about the touch features in these headphones because it's not just tap (though taps will be included here): 

Answer Call: Double tap

End Call: Double tap

Activate Voice Assistant: Triple tap  

Play/Pause or Remove/Reinsert Earbud: Double tap

Press Finger On Earbud: ANC (On), Transparent, Off


Price:
 Pricewise, the 1More EVO comes in at $169.99... which is solid, zero complaints. You can get it in either black & gold or white & gold. 

Other competitors have a few more colors than what you have with these headphones, but... in terms of quality and price, I can live with these colors (especially since they look nice). $169.99 (plus you can save for a limited time at this link), compared to $399 B&O Beoplay EQ, the $249.95 Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 3, and even the $279.99 Sony WF-1000XM4... it's honestly a no brainer. 

No hate on the other options, but... money doesn't grow on trees, parents have to take care of x, y, z, college students don't always have money like that, and professionals that I know... aren't buying for the name they want the quality. What does that boil down to? Well... I present to you... the 1More EVO Earbuds.
