| 2x Balanced Armatures | Triple Layer Titanium Driver | Bluetooth |
🎧 We are reviewing the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT, the Bluetooth wireless version of the ultra-famous 1MORE Triple Driver E1001.
The 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT features an advanced hybrid configuration with 2 balanced armatures and a triple layer dynamic driver with a titanium diaphragm.
As you might appreciate from the photographs, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT has a neckband/neckbud design with a wireless Bluetooth connection – like the 1MORE Dual Driver BT ANC, 1MORE Spearhead VR BT and the 1MORE Stylish Dual-dynamic Driver BT.
The neckband has a main section with a soft silicone finish which is combined with metal ends where the buttons, charging port, battery and Bluetooth module are hold. This metal ends have a polished and classy look with vibrant-red details.
The original 1MORE Triple Driver in-ear headphone gained such a massive popularity that the brand now offers 3 different flavors of it:

- 1MORE E1001BT – Bluetooth wireless neckband version (model being reviewed in this article)
The 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT construction quality and durability feels outstanding due to their all metal build. The housings are entirely made of aluminum alloy with a pearled finish while the cable that connects the earpieces to the neckband is rounded and rubberized.
This neckband model from 1MORE has quite a long name and this leads to some resellers and online shops listing them with shorter names or slightly misspelled ones. Among the most common names that refer to this same model you will find:

Accessories & Packaging
The 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT unboxing results in a soft pouch, a USB Type-C charging cable and 9 pair of eartips. The eartips included are: 1x 14.5mm (silicone), 1x 13mm (silicone), 1x 12mm (silicone), 1x 11mm (silicone), 1x 10mm (silicone), 1x 14.5mm (foam), 1x 13mm (foam), 1x 11mm (foam) and the silicone pair already placed on the unit.
The packaging has a similar style of the 1MORE Triple Driver Over-Ear Headphones and the 1MORE Quad Driver In-Ear Headphones, with a solid construction and magnetic side-opening design. Differently to these other 2 models, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT packaging does not have aesthetics that resemble a book (to see the book-styled packaging read our 1MORE Triple Driver Over-Ear Headphones H1707 review and the 1MORE Quad Driver In-Ear Headphones review)
Important note about sound characteristics of the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT: Placing the unit as deep as you can, the vent hole near the nozzle will, most probably get blocked, unleashing a gigantic amount of bass – this alters the perception of their whole sound signature. Therefore, our 1MORE Triple Driver BT review includes a “double-review”: one with the vent blocked and one without the vent blocked.
This ventilation hole phenomenon has been seen several times in many other headphones through our reviews.
Bass & Sub Bass
Vent not blocked
With the ventilation hole not blocked, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT has a very punchy mid-bass and abundant deep sub-bass but is not exaggeratedly profound.
The personality is fun and clearly energetic with the ability to cover any music genre without issues. Do not expect a conservative nor an anemic bass response from the 1MORE Triple Driver BT. Nonetheless, their bass does not take ownership of the whole sound signature, allowing space for mids and highs without making them a bass-only headphone.
Overall, their lower frequencies are full sounding but very well-balanced.
Applying an EQ, there is a noticeably deeper sub-bass response but not a radically punchier style.
Once the vent gets blocked, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT disengages a monstrous amount of bass that is remarkably powerful, with a beefy mid-bass and crazily profound sub-bass.
The profile is now super energetic with plenty of punch and depth to fulfill, absolutely, any bass requirements – even for EDM and any basshead track.
The bass tuning of the 1MORE Triple Driver BT E1001BT (with the vent blocked) will make happy listeners looking for intense bass that can reach humongous levels of punch and depth.
Applying an EQ, the already huge amount of bass delivers insane punch and depth.

Mids & Vocals
Vent not blocked
With the ventilation hole unblocked, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT have warm, full bodied mids with crisp higher mids, alive and cozy lower/male vocals and hardly-ever congested lower vocals.
Their upper midrange does not exhibit problems with harshness.
Overall, 1MORE achieved a charming tuning of their midrange.
With an EQ, any hint of mid-bass bleed gets erased, adding clearer lower vocals.
Higher mids can be pushed for an extra-crisp style but we do not consider that they need this EQ path for their upper midrange.
If the vent hole is blocked, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT midrange will be very warm with present mid-bass bleed that adds congestion to their lower midrange.
Higher mids will not sound recessed, still offering a crisp and clear sound.
People looking for a non-harsh nor forward tuning and a very full-sounding, cozy midrange will like them in this mode.
With an EQ, their midrange gets exceptionally refined with way cleaner lower mids and male vocals, nearly no mid-bass bleed and a sparkly higher midrange. Overall, with an EQ, their mids (with the vent blocked) gets more inline with their unblocked-vent sound style.
Highs & Treble
Vent not blocked
With the vent not blocked, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT highs have an excellent balance of brightness and detail – not an overcooked-bright earphone but a compelling amount.
Piercing and fatiguing peaks are not an usual problem while sibilance is mostly smooth and rarely present.
An EQ, applies a huge increment of brightness and a much more open sound, also some additional detail is resolved. Piercing highs remain under control and sibilance does not get empowered.
Once the vent hole gets blocked, the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT highs show a generous amount of detail and offer sufficient brightness for average consumers. Their highs are not overly recessed but do exhibit a darkish tint that is mostly generated by the massive bass response that colors the sound signature.
Piercing peaks do not show up, likewise sibilance is not present.
EQ’ed, their highs show a phenomenal improvement, revealing a much brighter, detailed and open sound with a strong reduction of their darkish tint.
To be fair, with the vent hole blocked, their highs response is not being modified but it is the dominant and powerful bass that interferes with the perception of their highs brightness, detail and style.
The sound leaking out of the 1MORE Triple Driver BT is a bit less stronger than most normal earphones. Their sound will mostly blend in during everyday city environments but might leak too much for library use.

The sound isolation provided by the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones E1001BT is very noticeable and substantially stronger than most average earphones.
Partial isolation is immediately achieved at any given volume setting and offer the potential to become near-absolute when dialing up the volume of your music listening sessions.

The nozzles of the 1MORE Triple Driver E1001BT are angled (like seen in many other models in our 1MORE headphones reviews and Xiaomi headphones reviews). This angled nozzle design has proven to be offer a comfortable, secure and deep fit.
Moreover, the silicone neckband makes the unit very stable without risking to slide nor tilt to one side while walking.
The 9 different types and sizes of eartips that range from 10mm up to 14.5mm provide a better comfort and fit for any ear’s morphology.

Response to Equalization
The response to EQ of the 1MORE E1001BT was highly efficient with a fine-tuning of their midrange and highs by clearing up lower mids and brightening & opening up their highs while not introducing fatiguing nor harsh peaks.
