1More Piston Fit In-Ear Overview

The Build quality has a premium segment look thanks to the aluminium (Anodized metal surface) build, which helps to shed weight as well as makes it a solid product which is sturdy and looks sharp.

The 1More Piston Fit’s style is a mix of the Piston Classic and the Triple Driver. The looks are a little similar to the Classic, but the angled-ear tips design of the Triple Driver. They are in-ears, so they aren’t very flashy or bulky.

However, Piston Fit look more high-end than what the price suggests.
The make of ear tips has a nice tilted angle of 45 Degrees that makes an easy way to slip into your ear canal and hold its place, which is a comfortable position of any ear tips being in ear canal and doesn’t bother the user even if they wear it for a long time. Piston in-ear are very portable headphones due to the in-ear design and it doesn’t have any latency issues since they are wired.

The finishing of ear tips has a nice highlighted diamond cut which brings out a rich look to the product. Clear L/R label on the bottom of ear tips and the streamlined SR tube wire protection to protect against wear and tear. 1More Anodized iPhone colored surfaces are fingerprint resistant and made to last. 1More offers the Piston in-ear headphones in four different versions when looking for colours as Space Grey, Silver, Pink and Teal.

The Space Grey variant looks more subtle and stylish, the other color variants look trendy and attractive. The four colors go really well with the latest mobile phones and their colors, may it be leading Android mobile phones or iOS-based iPhone or iPad. The colors compliment the overall look very well.

The Piston Fit variant from 1More has 1.25-Meter-long cord which is made of soft-rubber and as claimed the cable consists of interior enameled copper wrapped around Kevlar fiber to greatly increase durability and is coated with TPE for softness and comfort. Coming onto the most important thing that every headphone user face is the entangled cord, in this case due to the construction of cable it doesn’t tangle easily and has a mid-cable splitter.

The 3.5mm gold-plated headphone jack is another eye catcher, Piston Fit has an inline microphone and a single button remote to control media playback or answering calls which is supported by both Android and iOS (iPhone/iPad) which allows you to take calls without cross-talk or background static.

The drivers have a frequency range of 20Hz to 20,000Hz, an impedance rating of 32 Ohms and sensitivity of 100 dB/mW. The patented dual layer driver consists of titanium and PET. The PET diaphragm provides deep bass while the titanium diaphragm provides enhanced response time, detailed mids and sizzling highs.

As 1More didn’t want to leave any stone unturned they approached Grammy winning sound engineer Luca Bignardi to perfect the final tuning so as to deliver a precise representation of your favourite artists intended sounds.

The most practical use of any headphones is on a daily basis where you use it for handsfree calling purposes or maybe music on the go. Like most in-ears, the 1More Piston Fit are very breathable as they don’t trap heat. They won’t make your ears sweat more than usual when exercising, making them a decent choice for physical activities and long listening sessions may it be call or music. 1More Piston Fit is an extremely comfortable in-ear headphone for the regular use. Even if you stay on a long conference call it doesn’t give you any issues and the light weight makes sure you don’t feel something hanging inside your ear and the sound isolation is pretty decent. The Piston Fit comes with different sized ear-tips in box so as to fit in every type of ear canal so that you can perform physical activities without any worries of it slipping out due to lack of size compatibility. The three variants of ear-tips included in the box is a big help to consumers.
The Piston Fit when used with right sized ear-tips performs very well and the audio really comes alive.

The sonic signature is nicely balanced with detailed mids, clear highs and great focus on the bass. Tested with different genre tracks the Piston Fit performs quite well, for when tested with instrument heavy tracks the instrument layering’s and vocals of the track come out really well with bass in the optimal level. When listening to EDM’s Piston Fit delivers an ear pleasing warm tone with vocal levels crystal clear, when tested with the genre where you’ve vocals and bass all at higher levels like a hip-hop/rap track then you’ll hear the heavy bass quite well and the sub-bass is handled well and the low-end punch doesn’t get too bloomy in the Piston Fit.There are no spikes in the treble at higher volume levels, overall the sound staging is very good in Piston Fit.
The inline remote control has a very smooth functionality with voice calls and causes no strain for you to stay handsfree. A single press, double-press and triple-press will play/pause, fast forward or rewind your music. A long- press will bring up your device’s voice assistant: Google Assistant on Android and Siri on iOS.
