It cracks me up how pro terminology leaks into the mainstream. IEMs are in ear monitors. Not ear buds with a 4 conductor compatible remote hanging off of your left ear. Most IEMs are terminated in mini-XLR or quarter inch stereo plugs. Not 1/8th" 4 connector plugs. But it's part of that whole prosumer thing. People are happy to spend half their paycheck on items that they think are 'pro level', even though they are just goofing around.

From pretty much everything I've ever seen regarding the topic... when it comes to consumer products IEM means that it fits snugly in the canal while buds sit in the outer ear. Calling these earbuds would provide no differentiation when there's a huge difference between something that goes into the canal versus sitting in the outer ear.
Aaaw, kudos to all the fawning audiophile fanboys/girls...
Awesome to see these on Massdrop. I've had them since launch (I actually had them pre-ordered) and they are great. Basically the only IEM's I use anymore.
I've had a pair of Quads for a while. They arrived about the same time as my Massdrop Plus Universal IEMs. I like both very much. I like the sound quality of the Quads a bit better, but they are nowhere near as comfortable as the Plus Universals. I think the current drop is a good deal. The Quads, the Plus Universals, Thinksound USP1s, and my RHA T20s are my favorites although all sound somewhat different and all feel different, but I like them all. I suppose that statement suggests that I have no judgment, but I offer these thoughts to provide something to gauge whether you might like the Quads.
If 1MORE would ditch this terrible housing shape I might give more of their IEMs a try. I used a set of their early 3 driver IEMs and couldn't stand the screechy peak in the highs almost as much as I couldn't stand the shape of the IEMs.
If they started making a comfortable over ear set, they'd get back on my radar...
Heefty
Never had an issue with my Triple or Quad drivers with any screachy peaks or bad design...
Selling my quads if anyone is interested.

Nice to see another ME player!
Hi, does anybody know if the cables can be removed from the earphones in case there is a problem? Thanks, koochykoo52
koochykoo52
The cables are not detachable.
I don't get it what is 1MORE has against international shipping!!! 🤔 as long as I remember non of their drops was ever internationally shipped, yet they sell the same IEM advertised here to you in amazon at double the price in my case (Australia) triple the price @ A$ 312.00 . Maybe this is how they recoup the money they lose as bulk discount to massdrop 😏

Agreed. Ship to Australia for goodness sake.
I got my pair actually from 1MORE, but I just wanted to say that these are one of my go to pairs of IEMs, and I collect IEMs! At a savings of $30.00 over Amazon, this is well worth buying.
Hey there, I'm a fan and have a few Sony BA earphones (XBA-40, XBA-A2, and a few more). I was wondering if anyone had a comparison. If these have a little more bass than the 40's and are a little brighter than the A2 that would be spectacular for me! haha
I owned both these and the triple driver. Very similar sound signatures, both quite 'v' shaped. The quad driver did have a bit more refinement and air over the triple and was a bit more balanced sounding from what I recall. I'd say it was an improvement, and this is a pretty good price (I bought my pair on Azon for $149). However, you can pick up a triple driver over there for $79. Not sure if these are worth almost double the price. Build quality on both was excellent. However, in the end I returned both. That v-shaped curve just got to me after a while.
I have the triple, I like the Sq and flavor. But I think the nozzle(?) diameter is a tad too big for me. My other iem fits better, but this one I really have to push in and I feel the pressure. I think this one has similar diameter
Cons
I think the nozzle is still big, take a look at the pictures here https://www.unboxbear.com/1more-quad-driver-review/

Yup, they do look very similar, and I would not be surprised if they are the same. I barely use the triple because of this, at least not for longer sessions Of course this is subjective but just a heads up to the people who are interested.
Probably the best IEMs money can buy!! They sound terrific.

"You may prefer a $1000 pair compared to a $140 pair."
Thanks for the insight… ◔_◔
Sound IS extremely subjective. I think what you call natural is actually called shrill, and natural is what some call dark. Hearing a string quartet in person is not the same as hearing a string quartet on a "flat" headphone.
Not a bad pair of IEMs. Energetic, but the treble sounds slightly artificial, bass is pretty satisfying, mids are kind of sucked out. Not my preferred tuning, but gets some things right.

Thanks! Will check them out. Cool. Em sound better with a dac amp?
KrisBali
For the most part, iems sound good out of decent digital audio players, but yeah, a good dac/amp never hurts.
My fav in-ears I have ever had and/or tested unbeatable in price/performance ratio IMO
Interesting. I've heard good things about the 1More Quad Driver and have been interested.
At this price I might of gone for it, but I just picked up an iBasso IT03 for $190 (literally two days ago) and I don't think these are quite on the same level. Besides I'm not really a fan of the Quad's design and non-removable cable.
This is a good price though for the Quad's. If not for my recent purchase is be considering these.

TBH, and IMO, the sound quality doesn't warrant the expenditure. I could spend the same money for those improvements and get more pairs of iems that I prefer more.
Squee
That's also an option 👍
I'm here in Toronto and got these a month ago. I dunno if there are shipping charges applied from US to Canada (which might bring it back to original price) BUT I recommend these headphones. I couldn't wait since my dailies broke but the fidelity is in these buds. I recommend you get em.
For those curious, here's a good resource for a side-by-side of the Triple and Quad, frequency plots and all: https://www.rtings.com/headphones/tools/compare/1more-triple-driver-in-ear-vs-1more-quad-driver-in-ear/432/469.
Drat, requested this, and now it's here, I see its limited to USA and Canada - what about the UK? We want access to these drops as well!
ColRMMC
Agreed. I want it and I am in Malaysia.

Australia :(
3/21/18 Update: this quad driver + a Topping NX1s on high gain/reg bass = kick azz combo. This little amp kicks up the sonic bliss a full notch!!! For the past several days, I haven't had the urge to pull out my HD800/Woo WA22 and HE-6. Highly recommended...
koiloco
How do these compare to your hd800 in detail retreival?
Oh I missed this! What was the final price for the quads? Any ideas on wheb to expect another drop?
Just received mine today. Wow, I am extremely impressed with the packaging, build quality, and most importantly, the sound quality/tuning. I was about to purchase the SE846 again but this IEM will do just fine for now. 100% worth the $$$. Actually, I believe it's a bargain... Well done 1More...Highly highly highly recommended.
I bought these 6 months ago on amazon, they definitely need at least 2-3 weeks full time burn in. They are so worth the wait. Mids are a little recessed, but bass, treble and soundstage is amazing! Imaging is good but not the greatesT. Do not buy these for gaming as they do not provide a good sense of 3d surround. They are somewhat revealing to music so a good dac and source can definitely male these sound better. They dont sound very good on my iphone 8 but they do sound better on my macbook or my receiver. Don’t hesitate to buy these and give them a good burn-in! The company service is crap, I sent them about 10 emails and they never replied,.
To save anyone the trouble if you want to watch the video, skip to 29:57.
Can we have different color like this one?

mrbinary
They only come in 1 color which is the one in your picture
I have the triples. Is it worth it to upgrade to the quads?
brownsox
I have upgraded myself from triple to this and I absolutely loved this for few reasons. 1. I find these are much more comfortable and erogonamics fits to my ears 2. The soundstage is definitely wider and much more improved than triple 3. Triple has too much treble , this are mellow, warm sound signature and amazing low end with rammed highs
but to get best out of this, you have to use with decent dac like I am using with iFi Micro DSD Black
Getting ready to pull the trigger on the quads, by chance has anyone who has these had the Sony MDR EX600 by chance? Curious if they're worth the upgrade.
Currently on SE215s, would this be a substantial improvement over it?

I will accept both of your assessments on the se846. At the price point of the Quad Driver, it's a good value
Anticipated what will come out next from 1More.
Is there any plans in the future to get the quads with the lightning cable with the dac/amp like the triples? I think $200 is a good price for them WITH that lightning cable as around last holidays the triples were like $70 and the quads were I believe only like $120 on that sale WITHOUT lightning cable which was a good price that had a lot of success and my gut tells me 1more is going to be coming out with new iems or atleast new versions sometime this year which I am very interested in. The guy on beginner audiophile podcast love the triples and quads as well as many people on amazon 👍
