After a few days of experience, I can really feel that the 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini is a very not simple true wireless earbuds. In this very compact earphone, 1MORE has applied almost all the functions on the market today, which really makes people feel that 1MORE has reserves in terms of technical strength. After the launch of the 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini, known as “the smallest noise cancellingearbuds”, I believe it can make the already fiercely competitive true wireless earphone market even more intense. It should be noted that the ANC effect of this headset is average, at least not in the first echelon.

Unboxing: “Small and Beautiful” exquisite experience (Design, Comfort, Battery life)
In our usual impression, the design of 1MORE headphones will use sweet colors and bright textured materials to create a very sweet feeling. This time, 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini deviates from 1MORE’s consistent design style in appearance design, and presents it with a low-key and restrained design style that is more in line with oriental aesthetics. 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini adopts the design concept of “small and beautiful”, and earbuds adopts a simple design style of solid color. The solid color appearance is matched with an oval charging case with a matte skin-friendly coating, which has a simple appearance and a good touch. The charging case gives a rounded and soft impression, showing Zen and wisdom from the East.
The biggest highlight of 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini is its earbuds. Usually true wireless earphones that support ANC are large in size and have a certain weight, but 1MORE will greatly reduce the size and weight of the very “huge” noise cancelling true wireless earphones. The weight of a single earphone is controlled at 3.7g, which is 18% lighter than a piece of low-density A4 paper.
The appearance design of 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini earbuds also uses many modern advanced technologies, such as: 3D real-life optical modeling, Ai simulation ergonomic design and other means to ensure the wearing experience of the earphones. After such operations, the 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini has a very good wearing feeling. And the earbuds can fit the ear canal well and be firmly fixed in the ear canal, so that the user no longer has to worry about the earphones slipping out when wearing. It is worth mentioning that the 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini also supports IPX5 waterproof, so it can be used without any problems in sports sweat or light rain.
In the case of a substantial reduction in size, the 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini earbuds have not sacrificed battery life, which really makes people feel the progress of the product solution in recent years. 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini earbuds can listen to music for up to 6 hours when fully charged, and can reach 24 hours of comprehensive battery life with the charging case. Even when the noise cancelling mode is turned on, it has 5 hours of battery life and an overall 20 hours of battery life. And this earphones also supports wireless charging and fast charging, charging for 10 minutes, you can use it for 90 minutes.
User experience: “small but strong” actual performance (Control, APP, Noise cancelling, Calling)
The operation logic of 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini is very smooth, and all the commonly used functions are operated by touch. Only the charging case retains a physical pairing button. Users can perform operations such as play/pause music, previous/next, volume-/+, wake up the voice assistant and switch the noise cancelling mode by double-clicking, triple-clicking or long-pressing the touch area of the earphones. An operation that requires multiple touches to execute an instruction can minimize the possibility of accidental touches. And users can customize the operation of earphone through 1MORE MUSIC APP to meet diverse usage needs.
On the 1MORE MUSIC APP, in addition to customizing the operation of earphones, you can also switch the noise cancelling mode according to your own needs. 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini still uses the self-developed QuietMax dual-feed intelligent noise cancelling. Each earphone is equipped with feed-forward and feed-back dual microphones, combined with intelligent algorithms for instantaneous noise cancellation, the maximum noise cancelling depth can reach -40dB. The APP provides three modes of noise cancelling (depth, comfort, anti-wind noise), transparency mode, and noise cancelling off, allowing users to choose easily and freely.
After the actual experience these days, I can feel that the 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini is still good in noise cancelling (although the noise cancelling ability is not in the first echelon). The moment the noise cancelling function is turned on, most of the surrounding ambient noise is effectively filtered. After switching to the deep noise cancelling mode, ComfoBuds Mini earbuds can also have a relatively obvious filtering effect on the sound of low-frequency vehicles and the noise of engine vibration, and can also have a relatively good suppression of human voice. But for the high-frequency noise emitted when the subway car rubs against the rails, active noise cancelling will be a bit laborious. These high-frequency noises still need to rely on the physical isolation of the headset itself or passive noise cancelling to help. (1MORE ComfoBuds Mini’s ANC mode is not very good at handling high frequency noise)
1MORE ComfoBuds Mini also put a lot of effort into noise cancelling. ComfoBuds Mini earbuds are equipped with two microphones each, which integrates the DNN (deep neural network learning) intelligent algorithm to enhance intelligent recognition by continuously picking up the voice of the caller. While eliminating most of the ambient noise in real time, it can accurately pick up the caller’s voice. In the actual test, the two sides communicated smoothly when making a voice call in the noisy environment of the street. The other party said that only a small part of the ambient noise can be heard during the call, but it does not affect the actual call quality.
Sound quality of 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini
1MORE ComfoBuds Mini earbuds use a 10mm dual magnetic circuit graphene dynamic driver. It is often said that the sound quality of headphones depends not only on the unit, but also on the tuning. The 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini are tuned professionally by Grammy-winning recording artist Luca Bignardi. The blessing of master tuning has laid the foundation for the sound quality performance of this earphones.
In terms of actual listening experience, 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini is a relatively thin sound style as a whole. It sounds like the image is far away, there will be a certain sense of space, and it is a relatively refreshing sound. The low frequency of ComfoBuds Mini has a certain sense of volume and good elasticity. There is a certain sense of layering in the mid-frequency, the details of the instruments are clear, and the vocals are clean and clear. The resolution of high frequencies is slightly inferior, but it is still rich in details. In general, the 1MORE ComfoBuds Mini is a very good choice for listening to vocals or ballads.
Of course, if you don’t like the original sound tuning style, 1MORE gives you the greatest degree of freedom, and you can choose different sound styles according to your own preferences. In the 1MORE MUSIC APP, there is also an option called SoundID. In this option, after a series of listening style preference tests, users can adjust to the sound style you like to meet the diverse needs of users.
