At first look the 1MORE Stylish True Wireless In-Ear Headphones make a good impression. I like the sleek, metallic finish and the fact 1MORE use an eco-friendly process to produce their coating. Because the coating is non-conductive there’s no signal interference, so it’s both practical and stylish. I chose the traditional black look, but you can choose pink, green, or gold instead so you can suit your own style and existing technology.
In the ear these feel comfortable, but they are compact and that made me feel they were coming loose which isn’t great. The true wireless experience hinges on a good, secure fit, and that can be hard to predict when shopping for in-ear headphones. It helps that the headphones have silicone 45-degree angled tips and an O-Hook, and you get three sizes of each for a choice of best-fit.

One attraction for me with true-wireless headphones is the battery life and 1MORE have put a lot of effort into this, with fast charging of the case which itself holds three full charges for the headphones. That means a total of 24 hours of battery life. The fast charging allows for 3 hours of use from a 15-minute charge time which has been a lifesaver at the office when I’ve forgotten to charge them overnight.
Automatic on/off toggling when removing the headphones from the case is useful but on occasion the headphones haven’t automatically connected. But as with most Bluetooth headphones it’s not hard to power off and on the earpieces to re-connect. By using the two earpieces, 1MORE have added more controls with phone call control on the left and media control on the right. This is a nice idea, but I often forget which side I need to click. It’s also annoying to only have the left one in use but then need to pause my media.
The sound experience on these headphones is good, with a 7mm dynamic driver delivering bass and detail in the compact earbuds. I have been impressed by the consistent signal when I used these over longer distances which means I don’t miss a word of my podcast when I’m making a cuppa.
1MORE have produced a nice looking product that performs. I don’t rate the feel or the fit, but they look great, and the tech inside has obviously been developed well. For me, they work very well for use at my desk and around the office.
