Two months ago we unboxed and checked out the 1MORE Colorbuds 2. They’re a pair of true wireless earphones that offer so much bang for your buck.

So much so that when 1MORE asked if we could do a follow up for the holidays, we said sure!

We could easily name 9 reasons to gift it to someone special or to yourself.

1. Value for Money

For under $100, the 1MORE ColorBuds 2 offer so many features exclusive to more expensive wireless earbuds.

You get active noise cancelling, transparency mode, fast charging, wireless charging, and so much more at just $79.99.

And if you’re feeling lucky, you can win a pair just by joining our giveaway:

2. Active Noise Cancelling

The 1MORE ColorBuds 2 offers two listening modes: Active Noise Cancellation and Pass Through.

It’s easy to get lost in your own world when you have ANC on, which is helpful when you’re on the subway and want to get things done despite everything that’s going on.

Pass through is great for when you’re biking or running or just doing errands and just want your very own soundtrack to your life.

Also, for the best noise cancellation you need a good seal. The ColorBuds 2 ship with three different sized foam tips so you can get a good fit.

3. IPX5 Rating

Speaking of fit, the ColorBuds 2 stay in my ears through my runs, where I end up sweating a lot.

But no worries, these buds have an IPX5 water resistance rating.

So unless you intend on spraying them with a nozzle, the Colorbuds 2 will still work despite the sweat from your most rigorous workouts.

4. Pocketable

The 1More Colorbuds 2 come in a small charging case. That’s because the Colorbuds 2 themselves are pretty small compared to your average in-ear noise-cancelling earphones.

So for users with small ear canals who struggle finding earphones that fit, this pair is something you’d want to check out.

Because of its size and pebble-like shape the case is so easy to bring just about anywhere: pop it into the pocket of your shorts or your purse with your other essentials.

5. Long Battery Life

What’s small that lasts long? Yep, the ColorBuds 2.

Unless you don’t sleep every night, you probably won’t find yourself in a scenario where you’ll be using your earbuds the whole day. In case you do, with its case, the 1More ColorBuds 2 offer a total of 24 hours of battery life when not using active noise cancellation and up to 18 hours with ANC enabled.

That’s more than long enough to last through your commute, the entire work day, and even a workout.

6. Fast Charging

Probably even more impressive than its long battery life is the ColorBuds 2’s fast charging feature.

With only a 15 minute charge, the ColorBuds2 can deliver two hours of playback.

7. Wireless Charging

I’m all for fast wired charging through and through but wireless charging support is great, too.

I love that I can just plop down the ColorBuds 2’s case on any of my wireless chargers.

If you own a phone that supports reverse wireless charging like the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, you can charge the case on the back of your phone, too!

8. Sound ID

Despite its size and price, the ColorBuds 2 is packed with technology that makes listening to music an even more enjoyable experience than usual.

Together with award-winning audio technology company Sonarworks, 1MORE integrated Sound ID into the 1MORE music app.

With it, you can tune the sound coming from the earbuds depending on your preference.

So whether you want more bass or higher treble, you can customize your settings on the 1MORE music app through a quick in-app test.

A little fun fact: SoundID is based on the same tech used to record music in over 70,000 recording studios around the world.

It’s also the same tech used to record the music of some of popular artists like Lady Gaga and Adele.

9. Color Options

Apart from personalized sound, you also get three color options to suit your style.

There’s Midnight Black, which is a nice classic color. There’s Frost White for those who like it clean and pristine. Lastly, there’s Twilight Gold, which is another neutral color that’s just a little bit more chic.

Those were 9 reasons you should get the 1MORE ColorBuds 2 this holiday season.

If you want to try your luck, don’t forget to join our giveaway! We are giving away three pairs so you can win a one for yourself or for your loved one.

OnePlus is building its own mechanical keyboard

To celebrate its 9th anniversary



It’s OnePlus’s 9th anniversary. For almost the entirety of December, the smartphone brand is holding a plethora of events for its fans. Naturally, one of those events involves new products coming to OnePlus. Teased officially, the company has revealed what’s coming: a mechanical keyboard.

Besides smartphones, OnePlus also has a wider lineup of other devices like smartwatches and earbuds. That said, a mechanical keyboard is an all-new department for the company.

Based on the small landing page for the keyboard, OnePlus is creating the device with Keychron, a notable brand for the segment. Unfortunately, the page does not reveal much more about the keyboard. If anything, Keychron’s involvement confirms that the company means business.

As with most mechanical keyboards these days, users can customize the upcoming device’s keycaps. With that, another mystery is whether the brand will sell custom keycaps of their own, or users can buy their own.

Thankfully, interested users don’t have to wait long. OnePlus is scheduled to launch the new keyboard on December 15, right in the middle of its grand celebration for its 9th anniversary.

Since its inception, OnePlus has moved from flagship killer to selling flagships itself to now expanding beyond just simple flagships. Now, the brand is looking beyond.
