While Dynamic driver plays an important role for the rumbling bass and dynamic sound, Balanced Armature (BA) drivers define the clarity in certain ranges. Earbuds in ear headphones today are taking advantages of both these drivers, either they are build with dual dynamic drivers or a hybrid – one BA and the other Dynamic. Here are 5 best possible dual driver earbuds you could buy for any budget.
The Sony XBAH1 is the best value for the money of all Sony in ear headphones, considering 3 factors combined, which is build quality, sound and comforts. Though they feature large housings that possibly don’t fit everyone’s ears, once they fit right into your ears, you would get the most out of its potential sound.
The sound of Sony XBAH1 overall is dynamic and detailed.
1More is successful with their 1More tripble driver earbuds that has topped the list for best $100 earbuds for many years since they were introduced in 2016. Their recent release, the 1MORE Dual Driver is also favored by head-fi community. My first impression about this pair of dual driver earbuds are the great build quality. The housings of 1MORE Dual Driver are made of aluminium, they are quite well-built and lightweight and compact. We found its size is smaller than most dual driver earbuds on the market.
MEE persists the design of IEM PRO series with transparent housings, so everything inside are exposed. The nozzles are a bit longer than average earbuds so the earbuds go deeper into the ear canal, which impoves fit and sound isolation. The L-shaped jack is solidly built the cable is constructed of 3 layers, rubber, metal and silicon, the inline-control with mic is also transparent.
Bass: powerful, solid and punchy, not just deep but speedy too.
Treble: refine and feel extended, sparkling but not edgy
Mid-range: would be shiny and more pronounced
There are a few dual driver Bluetooth earbuds you may be interested in Phaiser BHS-790 Bluetooth Dual Graphene Drivers and AWEI neckband Bluetooth headphones, both these earbuds look quite similar, but the later has longer lasting battery.
Since TIN Audio T2 Dual driver was released in 2017 – it was a symbol of rock-solid build earphones.
Though earpieces are a bit heavy and not for everyone’s ear – it does sound good. I also like the detachable cable that somtimes I tug the cable it will reduce the chance cable breaking or frying.
