Pros

  • Well-balanced sound
  • Highs are not overly bright
  • Large variety of eartips
  • Strong cable

Cons

  • Inline remote feels cheap
  • Average sound isolation

Bottom Line

While the sound isolation is not the best, the 1More Triple Driver in-headphones drive a well-balanced sound that has impressed many users.


The Status Audio CB-1 over-ear headphones have received positive reviews for their great price and the great audio quality for that price, with users describing them as having a flat frequency response suitable for critical listening. Users said that they are easy to drive and do not require a powerful audio source. Users also liked the included cables, pointing out that they come with a coiled and a straight cable. However, some users found that they can make the ears feel warm after long periods of use. Some pointed out that they look cheaply made, and suggested that their durability is questionable. Others also pointed out that they are not the best at isolating sound. For the price, the Status Audio CB-1 drives a good quality sound, but that comes at the expense of comfort it seems.

    The Status Audio CB-1 are a mixed bag throughout, but subtract the bad from the good and you’re still left with a very good-value pair of headphones. Their scale of sound is the top feature, provided by large 50mm drivers.
