[Amazon.ca] 1more Triple-driver IEMs - 80$

Not an all time low according to CCC but still a darn good price for a darn good pair of IEMs. When I bought my last pair they were over 100$.

They do sound good but build quality is terrible. Went through 3 pairs - first the braided cable frayed, exposing the wire underneath. Still worked fine but got it replaced through warranty - then left earphone started failing and was noticeably quieter than the right. Replaced that and few months later same thing happened with the second replacement. By that time no longer covered by warranty.

Agreed with above comments. Poor build quality and below par sound for the price point.

Another vote for poor quality here. If these had a removable cable, they would be quite decent at this price point as most of the issues I’ve experienced are with the cable or ear tips (which can be replaced).

These buds were highly regarded a couple years ago due to the RFD hive mind effect

Most of those who reviewed it, or other similar products mainstream in the US or on Amazon, really are ordinary, non-audiophile writers who don't know anything about IEMs, so you have to take anything they say with a huge grain of salt. The same kind of impressionable individuals who think Beats is for audiophiles.

funny how people on here are complaining about poor build quality for the price point but they're triple driver headphones for around $100! In any case, I bought a pair about a year ago and didn't find the sound quality that great and the buds were sort of big so they were uncomfortable in my ears even with the smallest foam tips. I guess I should try silicone tips. I ended up giving them to the missus. Definitely didn't knock my socks off. Went back to sennheiser cx300ii which I've used for at least 10 years but now using bomaker sifi as of the last few months and am very satisfied.

I also don't recommend this. I seen enough companies selling iems to know this product is overly marked up and just all about the marketing and packaging. Definitely a formula for a successful crowdfunding product but not something that can compete with average Sony jvc you get from bestbuy. Doesn't matter if theres 3 drivers if the sound range and balance is still flatter than competitors who aren't sporting 3 drivers

Kinda expensive to try and most likely return

Sony/JVC? 80 bucks expansive? Been watching Back to the Future? I cannot recall either company making any recent decent regular wired consumer IEMs and God knows I buy IEMs like some people buy cupcakes. I still have my old Sony XBA-3 but I am afraid they have seen better days (they are on sale for a mere half-million dollars on Amazon: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/offer-listing/ ... dition=all but thank God with free shipping, now that is "kinda expansive"Smiling Face With Open Mouth).

These are not meant to be studio monitors or something the peeps on headfi will rave about but for the average consumer, they are a very nice upgrade over stock earbuds.

These have been around the block and, aside the iffy build in some cases, are very well rated.Even if the build quality is iffy, you will have no issues getting a replacement within the warranty. I have had two pairs, one that kinda survived a washing machine trip, and am now using the Quads which I got for 99$ around Christmas 2018 as my main IEMs.

It's not that they're expensive, it's that there are other IEMs that offer better sound for around the same money, or even significantly less.

The Blon BL-03 can be ordered for around $36 CAD and will have very good quality as well.
Where do you recommend ordering these IEMs from?

I just ordered them on Amazon for 50 bucks taxes and shipping included. Be careful to order the ones with the mic. Should be here Monday.

Please note that these are worn around the ears which I am not a big fan of.

i probably should have just spent the effort to quote the ones "i feel" would be better than the 1more. the following has been sold at bestbuy and london drugs for years and often on sale during boxing day. they are cheaper in price and offer better quality (personal opinion)

Sony In-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones (MDRXB50APB)
https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/so ... b/10291083

jvc HAFX1X Xtreme-Xplosiv Headphone
https://www.amazon.ca/JVC-HA-FX1X-HAFX1 ... WB7QJQWMAJ

i just noticed the jvc one is not listed on bestbuy or londondrugs atm (i've bought from those places before for those iems) but amazon still sells it and is well reviewed.

i guess i just want to point out to other potential buyers is to not buy into a $80 dollar iem product. if you were, there'd probably be only a handful of reputable ones and plenty of ones trying to appear "premium"
