Advanced Features

The 1More iBFree sports headphones are more of a basic pair of headphones but they do offer a couple advanced features that you might not expect from a product like this.

They have a water resistance rating of IPX4 which means that you will not have to worry about them becoming damaged from the moisture of your sweat. You do not want to have to worry about the headphones you wear to workout being damaged because you are working out. You are not limited to only sweat resistance though. If you are in the middle of a run and it starts to rain you will be covered as well, no need to take them out and protect them. Some light splashing will also be ok, they will survive. That being said, they probably will not last through submersion so it is not recommended that you take them in the pool with you.

The earbuds themselves have ergonomic angles that are designed to go along with the natural curves of your ears, helping to give you a more snug fit for added comfort and for a better overall listening experience.
Sound Qualtity
Sound Qualtity

Sound Qualtity

For the most part, customers seem to enjoy the sound quality they receive from the 1More iBFree wireless headphones. Of course, there are a few reviewers who would disagree with this statement but the vast majority enjoyed the sound they heard while wearing them. The headphones, as with many sporty ones, they perform well with songs that have high sub-bass content, but these will not distort the sound when you get into the dangerously high volumes. Reviewers mention that the highs and mid-highs are sculpted and boosted. The problem lies with the deep bass, customers said that they sound a bit dialed back and it seems the treble is a bit too high when compared to other similar products on the market.

These might not be the best earbuds for those who consider themselves audiophiles, but for the average joe who is not too picky, these are a great choice.

These headphones do have a built-in microphone located on the inline remote, but customers are not too satisfied with the location of the mic nor the quality of their phone calls. A few reviewers mentioned that it seems like the microphone was too high on the cord, that mixed with the microphone being on the back side of the remote makes it so it picks up all the background noise around you, making it rather difficult for the person on the other line to hear you. Additionally, when there is no background noise your voice still comes through muffled. Customers just do not like the hands-free experience they get with this product.

Durability
Durability

Durability

The 1More iBFree Bluetooth earbuds have mixed reviews when it comes to durability. They are made out of an aluminum alloy, not plastic, so they are not going to break as easy as some others might. However, the cord is kind of thin and not very sturdy which can cause them to break easier than one would like. On the other hand, there are many customers who commented that these were super durable and they had no problems with them at all. It appears to be a case of how you are using them and taking care of them. If they are being used hard and frequently then it is expected that they are not going to last as long as they would otherwise.
