1More's Triple Driver Over-Ear

After coming home from school for winter break, I found waiting for me this package. I’ve seen a lot of prior attempts at multi-driver over-ear headphones, but in full candor, they mostly suck. The drivers always seem haphazardly and nonsensically arranged in some arbitrary geometry, and that randomness is usually reflected in the acoustic qualities of the headphones. But, I’d heard a lot from 1More in the past, almost entirely good, so I suspended my prior experience as best as I could and went in with the clearest head that I could muster.

Campfire Audio's Polaris

Before I even received these headphones, I reached out to Caleb Rosenau, Campfire Audio’s Vice President, looking to get a little wider perspective into the acoustic and aesthetic design of these headphones. With everything that CA says in terms of marketing (e.g. their T.A.E.C. and Polarity Tuned Chamber), I wanted to have more detail into what those terms actually meant, in terms of both acoustics and physical design. Thankfully, Caleb was very open to this and with me, and I came out having learned a lot about Campfire Audio has done that makes their headphones so, evidently, unique.

Comparison: 1More's Quad and Triple Drivers

The break down will be by frequency range first, followed by a general comparison of sound signature in summation, by both general characteristics and by soundstage/imaging/etc.

1More's Triple Driver

1More sent me an evaluation sample of both their 1More Triple Driver and 1More Quad Driver, and I've spent the past 3 or so weeks with them. After the full respective reviews of each, I'll run them A/B as close as I can and post a direct comparison of the two, so that those that are stuck between the two can have a (hopefully) better perspective as to their differences.

iFi Pro iCan

This review has taken me much longer than average to get written out, and the reasons, I think, will be evident through reading it. This product is absolutely jam packed with features, and every single one is precisely, nigh-perfectly, executed. I give massive props to iFi for managing to put out something as rock-solid as this, given how new they are as a company. I think that this is phenomenal introduction to their "Pro" line, and I am very excited to see what else they put out under that title.
