When comparing Moto Hint vs 1more Triple Driver, the Slant community recommends 1more Triple Driver for most people. In the question“What are the best in-ear headphones that come with a microphone?” 1more Triple Driver is ranked 2nd while Moto Hint is ranked 6th. The most important reason people chose 1more Triple Driver is:
There are two balanced armature drivers which handle the production of high frequencies, resulting in highs that are really detailed and have a lot of sparkle and detail to them. The 2 BA drivers are complemented by a dynamic driver (hence the triple driver designation) which handles the mids and the lower frequencies. Mids are smooth and clear while the bass is powerful yet at the same time is well controlled.
