1More Comfobuds Mini Review: All the Essentials


1More is one of those brands that have managed to put out impressively affordable and good-sounding audio products, and in the past few years the company has managed to cultivate a following thanks to its line-up of audio gear. In particular, the company’s Comfobuds device range offers a ton of different earbuds for different price brackets, each with their own set of features and functionality.

For this one, we’re going to take a look at the 1More Comfobuds Mini. The earbuds come with some nice specs and features, and if you’re interested in picking up a pair of considerably affordable earbuds that don’t compromise much on sound quality, then you should definitely check these out. Let’s get started!

ANC Functionality

Right off the bat, an awesome feature that the Comfobuds Mini come with is Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), which is something that you’d usually find on more expensive earbuds beyond the hundred-dollar price range. A lot of the time, many wireless earbuds compromise for the lack of ANC by using environmental noise cancellation, which sometimes isn’t all that effective especially when compared to ANC.

With that said, the Comfobuds Mini feature both ANC and even a transparency mode, in case you’d prefer to hear what’s going on in the environment around you. These can be turned on or off via the official 1More app, which you can also use to modify the touch/tap controls for the earbuds. The app also allows you to download and install firmware updates for the earbuds.

One thing to take note of is that environments with really loud external noise can be a challenge for the built-in ANC. It still works, but you can sometimes still hear very loud ambient noise such as when you’re standing right next to a loud engine, or an industrial exhaust fan for example.

Sound Quality and Sound ID

When it comes to audio quality, the Comfobuds Mini sound good. Of course, given the price there’s a bit of compromise, but overall the earbuds have a satisfying sound, with very audible bass, which is oftentimes lacking on affordable earbuds. Additionally, the bass sound doesn’t overpower the higher frequencies and mids, giving you a well-rounded listening experience.

In case you’re not satisfied with how the earbuds sound by default though, they are also compatible with Sonarworks SoundID. Simply put, SoundID is an intelligently-designed way to get a more accurate balance of how your music sounds, and it;s actually been used by 1More for a lot of their wireless earbuds.

SoundID works by using the 1More app to give you a series of several music samples, all with varying degrees of loudness and clarity. You can then pick which equalization you like the best based on all these choices, and the app creates a finalized sound profile based on all your choices.


The Comfobuds Mini are called that for a reason – they are rather diminutive in size, especially when compared to other wireless earbuds, which themselves are already small. The earbuds come in a case that actually resembles the egg-shaped charging case that the Google Pixel buds come in. The case features a USB-C charging port, an LED charging indicator in front, as well as a button on the side for syncing the earbuds. The entirety of the charging case is covered in a matte coating, and comes in black and white versions.

The earbuds are as minimalist as they come. There are no lengthy stems here, no fancy metallic trimmings or glossy plastic. If you’re after a very discreet-looking pair of TWS earbuds, these are definitely something to look into. Thanks to their small size, they also fit comfortably in my ears, unlike other wireless earbuds that tend to fall out or get too uncomfortable after a while because of their larger size.

Additionally, the earbuds come with an IPX5 rating, meaning that they will be safe for use in light rain, intense workouts, and such. Just don’t go dunking them into a pool or glass of water, though.

Battery Life

In terms of battery life, the 1More Comfobuds Mini are equipped with 34 mAh batteries in each earbud, while the case comes with a 440 mAh battery. The earbuds can provide a total of six hours of playtime before needing to recharge in the case. You can then top up their battery inside the charging case for a total of 24 hours. Of course, if you constantly use ANC, you might get slightly less battery life. But for most trips, the earbuds will be able to last you the entire way. The earbuds also support fast-charging in the case, so a ten-minute charge can get you up to an hour’s worth of playback time.

The charging case also supports wireless charging, so if you have any wireless charging pads lying around, they’ll be able to replenish the battery inside the case. If you manage to fully drain both the earbuds and case, 1More says that it will take around 70 minutes to fully charge the earbuds, and around 90 minutes to fully charge the case via USB-C.

The Good

  • ANC and transparency modes are great features
  • Wireless charging support
  • Great battery life, IPX5 rating

The Bad

  • ANC has trouble with extremely loud environments
  • Small size might not be for everyone

The Bottom Line

For a price of around $99.99 in the US, the 1More Comfobuds Mini can be a bit expensive, although they do occasionally go on sale. This puts them in similar pricing with other affordable earbuds from brands like Edifer and Anker’s Soundcore line of products. For the price though, you do get ANC, good sound quality, great battery life, IPX5 water resistance, as well as a minimalist design (though that is a subjective matter) – basically, the earbuds cover all the basics that you’d expect from a pair of modern TWS earbuds.

If these hardware specs fit your needs, then you should definitely check out the 1More Comfobuds Mini.
