iTWire – The 1MORE ColorBuds 2

While you might not be familiar with 1MORE, this sleek San Diego and Shenzhen-based electronic audio company might have the perfect headphones for you in the attractive and feature-rich 1MORE ColorBuds 2.

There is a lot to be said about the 1MORE ColorBuds 2. This is a pair of good looking headphones that come in three colors – black, white and light pink, weigh 4.9g each, have active removal of the noise (ANC), four microphones, a long battery life of 24 hours and are IPX5 water resistant to handle rain and sweat during your workout.

Yet, this is only the beginning. The headphones pack a Qualcomm QCC3040 chipset, Bluetooth 5.2, fast charging, wireless charging, 55mAh battery on the headphones and 410mAh on the charging case and a wireless range of 10 meters. The units support aptx, aptx adaptive, AAC, and SBC.

On the noise canceling front, you get ANC with pass-through modes so you can hear the world around you when you need it. Conversely, the four microphones also handle environmental noise cancellation to eliminate background noise when talking to others. You and the people you talk to get crisp, clear sound without being distracted by the background. And, of course, you can disconnect from the bus, train, or your ride and enjoy a world of music or audiobooks, the sound comfortably enveloping you.

Plus, headphones allow you to customize the way sound is delivered to you through SoundID. This is an application test from SonarWorks that measures how your ears individually perceive sound at different ranges and frequencies and is essentially an audio imprint of your ear. The result is sound personalized for your specific ears and hearing to give you the best results, no matter how unique your ears may be.

Much thought and effort has clearly gone into the performance of these headphones. The company’s sound is tuned by its in-house sound engineer, four-time Grammy Award-winning Luca Bignardi. In fact, the ANC is powered by 1MORE’s proprietary QuietMax technology.

The headphones fully charge in 70 minutes, and with the ANC on, that gives six hours of audio and an additional 12 hours on the go thanks to the included carrying and charging case. With the ANC off, this changes to eight hours and 24 hours, respectively. That’s plenty of time to get you through the day and night no matter what you’re doing.

The tiny earbuds weigh 4.9g and measure 27mm x 21mm x 20mm, while the case is just 34.5g and 60mm x 30mm x 38mm. It is easy to carry them in your bag or pocket.

Of course, numbers, specs, and features are one thing. How they adapt and behave is quite another. In iTWire, we could walk quietly in an old converted tram near my home. It’s a four kilometer walk each way, and although there are a few streets to cross first, it quickly becomes a peaceful path behind the retreat villages and alongside the acted horses.

I try to do this ride several times a week, and it was a great opportunity to try the ColorBuds 2. They fit comfortably, and it doesn’t matter if I was playing music, making calls, or listening to podcasts and audiobooks, the bluetooth connection was seamless, the sound was crisp, and I could most definitely block the rest of the world. The ANC and the tight fit combined to form a cocoon of my own pleasure. At no time did I feel that the headphones were going to fall off, or that they were thin.

There’s a lot going on with the 1MORE ColorBuds 2, but it all sells for US $ 79 and they’re available from 1MORE and Amazon.
