1MORE Launches Penta Driver In-Ear Headphones for Audiophiles

James Frew 10-01-2019

Purveyors of premium audio products, 1MORE, announced their new in-ear headphones at CES 2019. The Penta Driver in-ears expand their range of high definition headphones designed for both audiophiles and casual listeners alike.


The Penta Driver in-ears will be available in Q1 2019 and priced at around $300. As the name suggests, the Penta Drivers are equipped with five audio drivers: two bass, two mids, and one treble.

Unlike many headphones on the market which use micro-USB ports, the Penta Driver comes equipped with a USB-C connection. This allows them to transmit data and charge the headphones from a single cable.

The digital data transfer, rather than the more universal 3.5mm analog jack, means that the headphones can receive near-lossless HD audio; that is if you have lossless or HD audio and a capable player.

While high definition audio is a priority for some, many of us want to open Spotify, connect our headphones and get listening. The Penta Driver in-ears connect wireless to your smartphone with Bluetooth 5. There is even support for all the major high-quality Bluetooth codecs like AAC, AptX, and LDAC.

The design of the Penta Driver is undoubtedly eye-catching. Instead of two in-ear buds connected with a small wire, the buds are both attached to a neckband, used to stabilize the earphones while in use. The neckband is also where you can find all the hardware controls including volume, play/pause, and power.

The physical appearance of the headphones is an important factor when purchasing any wearable products. However, the actual audio quality is even more essential. Unfortunately, 1MORE didn’t have a demo unit of the Penta Driver at CES, so we weren’t able to say for sure just how good these CES Innovation Award winning headphones really are.

      As sometimes happens when companies announce hardware, the products are either a long way from launch-ready or sometimes don’t happen at all. This is often known as vaporware. There’s no suggestion this is what’s happened to the Penta Driver, but it may well be...
