#1 1MORE E1001 Triple Driver headphone

About  $100.00

The 1MORE E1001 Triple Driver portable earphones have an isolating ear-insert design. These iPod/cellphone-centric earphones have a 50-inch audio cord with a modified stereo, 4-contact mini-plug that works with iPods, iPads, iPhones, and some cellphones, but may not be compatible with other audio devices. The earphones have an inline microphone and inline remote with and integrated volume, music player function, and call connect/disconnect controls. The E1001 Triple Driver comes with nine pairs of ear pieces in various sizes and types, a mini-plug-to-airplane-jack adapter, a removable shirt clip, and a carrying case. It is covered by a 12-month warranty.

Detailed Test Results

Design and features:These earphones have medium sensitivity so they can provide satisfying volume levels when used with home audio equipment and all but the lowest-powered portable audio devices. The E1001 Triple Driver has an integrated microphone and music player function control that are compatible with iPads, some iPods, and some iPhones and some other cellphones. The call connect/disconnect button can be used with some iPhones and some other cellphones. These earphones may not operate properly with some non-Apple/non-Android mobile devices or other audio equipment. This model comes with nine pairs of ear pieces in various sizes and types, a mini-plug-to-airplane-jack adapter, a removable shirt clip, and a carrying case.

Sound quality: We found the E1001 Triple Driver delivers sound quality that falls in the excellent range; while no headphone is perfect, the sonic shortcomings of this model are minor. The overall sound can best be summarized as fairly clear and nicely balanced. Bass (as in bass drums, bass guitars, stand-up bass, etc.) has good impact, detail, and goes deep, but is slightly prominent. The midrange (voices, guitars, horns, etc.) is fairly even but a touch hazy and grainy. The treble (cymbals, the upper range of violins, etc.) is extended but slightly uneven - the mid treble is a bit prominent while the upper treble is a bit subdued. The sound has a good sense of liveliness and is somewhat open (sound-wise it almost seems like you don't have anything plugging your ears). The sound is very similar to that of the 1MORE Quad Driver, but the bass and treble are not as even.

Comfort: We found that these earphones fit and stay in place with no problem, but they produce a sense of pressure in the ear opening that might be uncomfortable for some.

Detailed Test Results

Design and features:These earphones have medium-high sensitivity so they can provide satisfying volume levels when used with home audio equipment and even lower-powered portable audio devices.

The sound is very similar to that of the 1MORE E1001 Triple Driver, but the bass and treble are more even.

#3 Audeze iSine 10 headphone

About  $350.00

The Audeze iSine 10 portable earphones have a non-isolating ear-insert design. These earphones are primarily intended for use with newer Apple mobile devices, but they can also be used with standard audio devices. It has a detachable 57-inch audio cord with a Lightning connector plug and inline remote with a built-in microphone and integrated volume, music player function, and call connect/disconnect controls that work with iPhones, iPads, and iPods equipped with Lightning connectors. The remote control also incorporates a digital to analog converter (DAC) and digital sound processing (DSP) amplifier. The iSine 10 comes with three pairs of ear pieces in various sizes, two pairs of removable ear bowl supports in various sizes, two pairs of removable ear hooks, a detachable 57-inch long standard audio cable, and a removable shirt clip, and a carrying case. It is covered by a 12-month warranty.

Detailed Test Results

Design and features:These earphones have high sensitivity when connected with either the Lightning connector cable or the standard audio cable, so they can provide satisfying volume levels when used with newer Apple mobile devices (with the Lightning connector cable) or home audio equipment and even lower-powered portable audio devices (with the standard audio cable). The iSine 10's detachable 57-inch long Lightning connector cable has an integrated 24-bit digital to analog converter (DAC) amp with digital sound processing (DSP), a microphone, and volume, music player function, and call connect/disconnect controls that are compatible with Apple iPhones, iPads, and iPods that use Lightning connectors. The Lightning connector cable does not have its own battery; the power used to run its electronics is drawn from the Apple mobile device it is connected to, and we found that it can significantly reduce the connected devices' battery life. In continuous use tests with a 6th Gen iPod Touch with the screen, WiFi, and Bluetooth turned off we found that the iPod's battery life when used with the iSine 10 with the Lighting cable was reduced by more than half when compared to use with other headphone in our ratings. Although the effect on battery life of the iSine 10 with the Lightning connection will differ depending on what Apple mobile device it's used with and how that device is used, this is something to consider, especially for users that find that find themselves needing to recharge their device often when they use it with typical earphones. This model also comes with three pairs of ear pieces in various sizes, two pairs of removable ear bowl supports in various sizes, two pairs of removable ear hooks, a detachable 57-inch long standard audio cable for use with audio devices without Lightning connectors, a removable shirt clip, and a carrying case. The free Audeze app download that's available for Apple mobile devices has a 10 band graphic equalizer tonal balance adjustment, can save two sets of tonal balance adjustments to the iSine 10's Lightning connector audio cable memory, and can update the iSine 10's firmware.

Sound quality: When we used the Lightning cable connected to an Apple mobile device we found the iSine 10 delivers sound quality that falls in the excellent range; while no earphone is perfect, the sonic shortcomings of this model are minor. The overall sound can best be summarized clean and clear with slightly empathic bass. Bass (as in bass drums, bass guitars, stand-up bass, etc.) has good impact and detail, and goes deep, but can be a bit prominent with some program material. The midrange (voices, guitars, horns, etc.) is detailed, but a touch lean and can sound clinical on some material. The treble (cymbals, the upper range of violins, etc.) is even and extended. The sound has a good sense of liveliness and is open -- sound-wise it seems like you don't have anything plugging up your ears. We noted a very faint high-pitched whine that's audible for a several seconds after an audio track is paused; it can also be heard between tracks and possibly during some audio passages. The 10 band equalizer in the app has a noticeable effect on the sound. When using the standard cable the sound becomes soft and hazy and the overall sound quality falls to the bottom of the good range.

Comfort: Our testers found that this model was clunkier than the typical earphone. As typical of in-ear models the iSine 10 produces a sense of pressure in the ear canal opening that might be uncomfortable for some; some users might also find that the ear pieces insert uncomfortably deep into the ear canals. For users with medium or larger ears this model stays in place with no problem when the ear hooks are used, but it takes a bit of fumbling to get them in place and the ear hooks might interfere with the behind the ear fit of eye glass temples. Some users might be able to get a secure fit when using the ear bowl supports, others will not; use with the earbowl supports also results in fumbling for proper placement. Users with smaller ears might find that this model does not fit well (the earphones will only be held in place by the earpiece extensions into the ear canals, which will not hold them reliably in place; the ear hooks don't provide support, and the earbowl supports might not fit into the earbowls correctly). Regardless of ear size, the earphones are not stable if the ear hooks or the earbowl supports are not used. The weight of the in-line remote/DSP amp/DA converter is noticeable unless it is supported by the shirt clip.

The sound has a decent sense of liveliness and is generally open -- sound-wise when the audio program is playing it seems like you don't have anything plugging up your ears, although the upper midrange/lower treble does sound a bit dry (a little bland and lacking in reverberance).

Comfort: We found that these earphones fit and stay in place with no problems, but they produce a sense of pressure in the ear opening that might be uncomfortable for some.
