1More announces its latest Dual Driver wireless in-ear neckbuds with ANC
1More is an audio peripherals company that often acts as an ODM to Xiaomi. However, it also markets earphones under its own name, some of which have high-end specs and, according to it at least, are "expertly tuned by Grammy Award winning sound engineer, Luca Bignardi". The Dual Driver ANC Pro Wireless In-Ear Headphones are the latest example of such products.
These accessories are of the "neckbud" form-factor, and are thus equipped with an "ergonomic neckband" to limit wearer fatigue. Unlike their predecessor the Dual Driver BT ANC, they also feature Bluetooth 5.0 and '2-step' ANC settings, so as to adapt somewhat to the environment and the severity of ambient sound to block out.
This is facilitated through dual ANC mics, as well as a dedicated DSP. The Dual Driver Pros also get their name from 13.6mm dynamic drivers with a "titanium composite" diaphragm. There is also a balanced armature involved, although it is an in-house one rather than something more standard such as the Knowles design.
These Wireless In-Ear Headphones are also estimated to have up to 20 hours of battery life, and charge via USB type C. They also have an IPX5 water-resistance rating and the useful magnetic-clasp neckbud feature.
The Dual Driver ANC Pros are set to launch on May 25, 2020, but can be preordered now for US$149.99 on 1More's own site, or 25% less than this with the discount code ANCPRO (functional until May 20, 2020).
