What’s In The Box / Design

The packaging of the EVO Pro does feel preminum giving a enjoyable unboxing experience. The black box, adorned with appealing illustrations, features a front flap that is secured by magnets. Upon opening, you’ll discover an inner foam mold that securely holds the cradle. Also included are 5 sets of silicone tips . The user guide is thick and provides instructions in multiple languages. Additionally, you will receive a short charging wire, a warranty card, and a 1More audiophile teddy bear sticker.

The Evo earbuds by 1More have an aesthetically pleasing design. The oval-shaped body is tapered to perfectly fit inside the ear. The shiny touch panels and gold accents enhance their premium appearance. 1More has discreetly placed the talking mic below each bud. The build quality is exceptionally durable, ensuring the buds can withstand accidental drops onto concrete. Moreover, the Evo is IPX4-rated, making it resistant to sweat and water. They’re quite good looking but some might complain about the slight thickness of the earbuds, and once my teenage son commented that they looked like Frankenstein’s Monster’s bolts I couldn’t get the image out of my head, that said when your wearing them you don’t see them.




The EVO case  is made of polymer materials  covered in a thick anodized white aluminium outer shell. The bottom has a rubber pad that makes it non-slip. The hinge is a polymer material and my only wish was that it was made of metal for durability’s sake. The case measures 66.60 x 28.61 x 38.65mm and weighs 46.9 grams. The total gross weight of the case with the earbuds tops off at 58.3 grams which is not bad. Rounded edges all around make the cradle more pocket-carry-friendly. The internal battery is rated at 450mAh and it can be charged in two ways. One is through the rear-mounted USB-C female connector and the other is via QI wireless charging. The battery according to 1More gives the user an average of 28 hours of total playback time and charges up in an hour. One aspect I must pick on is that it’s rather tricky to remove the earbuds out of the cradle because there’s not much to grab onto. But the battery life was more than adequate and well rated at the specified 5.5hours and 4 hours on ANC.

I got a total of 20 hours versus the posted 28 hours. That time can improve if you unlike me you turn off the Active Noise Cancelling and moderate the volume some.


1More App

The 1More Music app serves as the central hub for accessing all the extended functionalities of the buds and is readily available for download on both iOS and Android platforms. Here you can view battery levels for each bud and the charging case, changing listening modes and activating the SoundID function. ( more on that later)  Once you have paired the Evo’s to your phone, which was an absolute breeze, open the case and the pairing option appeared on scrren just like airpods on the Apple ecosystem

and connected it to the app, you will see an app screen that shows levels, and controls that let you choose between ANC, pass-through, and off. There is a switch to turn on the high-definition codec if you are streaming high-def audio.

The app is well-designed and easy to use. It is a great way to customize the sound of your earbuds and to get the most out of them. The Sound Options panel gives you access to a dozen EQ presets, including: Default Bass booster Classical Deep Hip-hop Pop Bass reducers Acoustic Podcast Electronic Lounge Vocal booster You can also create your own custom equalization and save it for future use. The EQ presets are a great way to quickly and easily change the sound of your earbuds. If you’re not sure what settings you want, you can start with the default preset and then adjust the settings to your liking. The custom equalization is a great way to create a sound that’s perfect for your ears. You can adjust the settings to emphasize the frequencies that you like and to reduce the frequencies that you don’t like. The Sound Options panel is a powerful tool that can help you get the most out of your buds


One feature included is SoundID, here you listen to piece of music, with a slider where you can change between version A and B and then select which suits you best, once this is completed a number of times, your personal sound profile is created and uploaded and saved to the earbuds. I found this really made a massive difference to the listening experience, the sound quality was head and shoulders above any of the pre-sets.



There is also a “Soothing Sounds” selection of 29 ambient noise options, including:
• Summer rain
• Medium fire
• Drizzle
• Thunderstorm
• Breeze
• Spring water
• Bamboo forest wind
• Snowing
• Underwater
• Outer space
• Gale
• Field
• Forest
• Waterfall
• River
• Ocean swell
• Tiny waves
• Desert
• Medium waves
• Mountain summit
• Volcano
• Jet stream
• Creek
• Flow
• Stream
• Train
• Creek
• Storm
• Downpour




In Use: 

The ceramic panels on these earbuds provide touch control functionality, allowing you to cycle through the ANC modes with a single touch and hold. Additionally, the 1More Music app allows you to customize double and triple taps for controlling features such as music pause, volume adjustment, and voice control. While the touch response is generally good, there might be a slight delay before the action is triggered. When it comes to sound quality, the 1More EVO wireless earbuds deliver performance that exceeds expectations. This has been a consistent trait of 1More headphones throughout my testing. Instead of using a standalone full-range driver, these earbuds utilize a hybrid system consisting of a 10mm dynamic driver and a balanced armature. The audio tuning is done by Luca Bignardi, an acclaimed sound engineer who has won a Grammy award.

The sound produced by these earbuds is well-balanced and clear. You have the option to customize the sound to your preference through the mobile app, which offers EQ presets, a customizable 10-band EQ, and the choice of using the optional SoundID audio profile from Sonarworks. When the ANC feature is activated, the low and mid-range frequencies become more pronounced, adding warmth and depth to the audio experience.

Despite being tuned by Luca Bignardi, like the Comfobuds and PistonBuds Pro, the 1More EVO TWS earbuds have a distinct sound signature. This could be attributed to the higher quality components used or the implementation of LDAC, or perhaps a combination of both. The overall tuning of the EVO is more aligned with the Triple driver earbuds. One notable characteristic of the EVO’s sound is its punchy bass and the presence of high frequencies. The bass is not exaggerated, but it adds a touch of coloration to the sound. The midrange section sounds smooth, but it is slightly boosted in output by a couple of decibels, resulting in a slightly V or U-shaped sound profile. However, the EVO offers a Hi-Res sound experience with ample bass, thanks to its well-extended frequency response, low distortion levels, and realistic tonality. The transient response of the earbuds is commendable, exhibiting a highly dynamic character with a pleasing attack and decay, especially for a true wireless system.

The 1More EVO exhibits a pronounced bass presence, delivering ample low-frequency energy. Fortunately, the bass remains clear and well-defined, avoiding any muddiness. It adds a touch of enjoyable bloom, thump, and coloration to the sound. The midrange of the EVO feels airy, but it maintains a contained spatial presence without projecting too far outward. The overall soundstage size appears to be medium. The high frequencies play a dominant role in the soundstage, occupying significant attention and space. The peak at 7kHz extends into higher frequencies, contributing to a slightly forward treble response in the EVO and explaining why the high frequencies have more prominence compared to the midrange. Overall, the EVO offers a soundstage size and precision that surpasses many other TWS models in the same category, though it may not be exceptional. The high frequencies create a sense of height and width, while the midrange provides some depth without much height. The bass, on the other hand, feels centered but also expansive to some extent.

The 1More EVO excels in another aspect: latency. While it’s possible that someone with a more discerning eye could detect a minimal amount of latency, I personally did not notice any significant delay. In fact, it performed better than average compared to other earbud sets. You can comfortably watch movies with dialogue without feeling like there is a noticeable lag in the audio. The lip-synching is accurate, and the impressive part is that this characteristic appears to be inherent to the EVO. There is no need to manually activate a sporting mode or low latency mode within the app. The earbuds naturally deliver an almost stellar performance in terms of latency, allowing for seamless audio synchronization.

Conclusion :-

In conclusion, the 1More Evo Earbuds  provide excellent value for their price. They deliver a high-quality listening experience, feature active noise cancellation, and boast a comfortable design. If you own an Android phone that supports the LDAC codec and enjoy high-resolution music streaming, these earbuds offer exceptional value at a very reasonable price point. While the Evo buds  are still a good choice for iPhone users, it’s worth noting that the performance may not be on par with that of an Android phone. For everyday use, the Evo Earbuds are an excellent option that definitely deserves consideration.
