Why We Love the 1More Piston Fit BT Earbuds

One of the most fun parts of panel testing for earbuds comes at the very end of the process. After our experts have spent time listening, comparing, and giving me their initial feedback, I occasionally like to do a gut check: “What do you think these cost?”

The answers can be illuminating. Mostly our experts are spot-on. (After all, they are experts!) Sometimes testers guess that expensive headphones cost far less, based on their performance. But on rare occasions, a truly excellent pair outshines its price range.

The 1More Piston Fit BT is one of these audio white stags—an under-$50 pair of wireless earbuds that sound great and work well. When asked, one panelist guessed they cost $80. Another said $100. Their jaws dropped when, like the host of Price Is Right, I revealed the $30 sticker price.

Over the past seven years, our audio experts have tested more than 200 different under-$50 pairs of earbuds. We think the 1More Piston Fit BT pair is the best overall value for the dollar. This is why we love these earbuds:

Their sound quality outperforms that of wireless earbuds in the $100 range.
The solid build quality feels more expensive than that of any of the competition.
A decent microphone means your voice sounds clearer to callers than with other cheap earbuds.
We love that this pair is so light and easy to stash in a pocket.

The Piston Fit BT earbuds typically go on sale around the winter holidays and Black Friday—and we still see regular lightning deals down to $20. Try to hold out on buying these until they’re discounted.
