1More is a California-based company that has recently entered the Indian market with a range of headphones and earphones, which again ranges in different price segment. Well, we will review 1More’s latest budget end earphones – 1More Piston Fit.
Before we go further, we want to let you know that, We used Xiaomi Mi A1, Mi MIX 2 and OnePlus 5 for testing this earphone. Although there is not much of difference in sound quality, the earphones remain same.
1More Piston Fit: Design
The Piston Fit comes with a fairly simple design, with an aluminum casing which makes it light and sturdy. It also comes with ‘CD lining’ textured surface, which makes it look good, but attracts microparticles making it tough to clean. The ear tips are tilted at a 45-degree angle, which makes it comfortable for a long run.
Well, the cord is 1.25 meters in length and the gold-plated 3.5mm audio jack also has the CD lining texture. Unlike many other earphones on the market (under Rs 1000), this comes with an inline microphone and a single button remote for answering calls and controlling media playback. The drivers on this have an impedance rating of 32 Ohms.
1More Piston Fit: Audio Quality
This earphone is remarkably comfortable to wear, thanks to its tilted ear tips. This earphone seals your ear canals, although it doesn’t provide good noise isolation, it is pretty good considering price range. The Piston Fit sounds very good with tracks that have a heavy bass, but coming to low-end punch it gets too boomy.
The inline control works well and has a single press, double press and triple-press options to play/pause, fast forward or rewind. A long press will pop up your voice assistant. The voice quality through inline mic is quite good (not the best) and in outdoors, the mic cracks up the voice making it useless, but again, considering the price it is decent.
This earphone was tested over a period of four weeks, so the conclusion is clearly appropriate. The 1More Piston Fit is one of the lightweight earphones I’ve ever used. And thanks to its tilted ear tips, it fits in perfectly. The audio quality is quite good considering the price.
So, if you are looking for a good pair of earphones under Rs 1000 budget, you can’t possibly go wrong with the 1More Piston Fit Earphones. This is priced at Rs 999 at the time of writing. If you could spend some little extra, you can also go with 1More Piston Classic (review).
