1More Piston Classic in-ear headphone: Unboxing, In-depth Review 2017
What happens when you get more, cheers reflects on your face. Similarly, 1More is the new audio company which aims to deliver more features than the present competitors. Unlike other companies their promises limited to their words but here in case of 1More, the scenario is different. Their work not only limit to their words but they do hard work and we say so because we have seen their effort as one of its earphones named 1More Piston Fit, ranked 1st in the list of the best earphones under Rs 1000 in India.
Their effort not only ended here but it has already won many awards in the field of Sound and design. Also, you will be surprised to know that-
Did you Know: Xiaomi’s popular piston is designed by the 1More.
Recently, one more product came out of the house of the 1More, 1More Piston-Classic earphone. And today we are going to review this earphone and tell you how is it performing on every stage. Under this review, we will judge the earphone with the priority order of sound quality, build quality, comfort, design & price.
So let’s dig out the user experience of the 1More Piston Classic earphone and let you know about it.
1More Piston Classic earphone: Price and Availability in India
Actually, 1More Piston Classic in-ear headphone was priced at Rs 1,999 but right now it is priced at Rs 1,499 and it is available for sale on Amazon India.
Now let’s move to the 1More Piston Classic in-ear headphone’s depth review.
Let’s us tell you that what we found in the box during unboxing it.
- 1More Piston Classic Earphone
- Three Extra silicone ear pieces of different sizes i.e., XS, S, and L.
- Warranty card that holds 1-year warranty.
- A shirt metal clip.
- A user manual.
1More Piston Classic was encased in a box and it’s packing was good & compact. Well, let’s move forward. When we take it out of the box, Piston Classic looks similar to the Xiaomi Piston- up to down same design, even same inline remote controller. Moving from 3.5 mm Jack to earphone, it has a gold plated 3.5 mm audio Jack and from 3.5 mm jack a strong kevlar fibre is used till the inline controller. This black colour Kevlar fibre is strong and add more value to the product. The inline mic controller consists of three buttons which give you control over call, & music.
Further, the soft thick rubber wire is used till the earphone. We check wire’s strength and surely its durability will long last. An extra rubber covering is provided at the joint of the wire and earphone to ensure its durability. Cylindrical shape given to the earphone makes it simple in look but it’s finishing we make you fall in love. Unlike other brands which use plastic, 1More uses aluminium body for earphone. The earphone fits easily and comfortably into the ear but if you are running or doing any exercise then it will fall off from the ear. Thus, it looks very simple but strong enough for the rough use.
1More Piston Classic: Review on Performance
We tested it playing various Hindi, Punjabi & English songs of various genres (Rock, Metal, Classical, pop etc). Before going to the depth review of sound quality, We want to tell you that if you are a lover of a well-balanced bass then definitely you will love it but earphone is not for the powerful bass lover.
We played Tushar Lal’s Pirate of Caribbean and I found that each & every node of the instrument (Flute, Tabla, Stereo Piano & Sitar) was clearly noticeable. With this, I can say that
Clarity reflects in Piston Classic
Till now, We can say that “For sound quality, this earphone is the best buy earphone under 1500”. Now its performance on the frequency then We conclude that Lows, Mids & Highs are well balanced. A song from Jai Paul’s Jasmine which is good enough to test ultra low frequency sound and stereo separation. This 1More Piston Classic handles all the stress easily. Even at the higher volume, it didn’t hurt much.
After the sound quality, isolation is an important factor and here in case of 1More Piston Classic, it is above average. Mean when you are at home or office, noise of talking, shouting or any else will not disturb you but when you walk on street, the noise will come inside and practically this much noise cancellation is good and necessary.
The audio on the microphone was clear. While we usually have difficulty with some earphones/headphones and are sometimes forced to hold the microphone in the right position and closer to my mouth, but we didn’t experience that at all with the 1MORE Piston classic, and we were able to talk into them naturally without any issues. Also, its mic has compatibility with the iOS/Android which add more value to the product.

It is the perfect choice for those People who are in search of well-balanced bass earphone but it is not for powerful bass lover. Also, its build quality and simple look add value to the product.
