The 1More Sonoflow is more affordable and offers a closed-back design, which means better noise isolation, making it suitable for commuting or office use. It also has wireless functionality with a long battery life, convenient for on-the-go use, and supports a high-quality LDAC codec for better sound over Bluetooth, plus it's equipped with a microphone for calls. On the other hand, the AKG K712 Pro, while more expensive, delivers superior sound quality and a more expansive soundstage due to its open-back design, which is ideal for critical listening in quiet environments. The K712 Pro, however, lacks wireless connectivity and a microphone, so it's not as versatile for calls or mobile use. If you prioritize better noise isolation, wireless convenience, and need to use them for calls, go with the 1More Sonoflow. If sound quality and a wide soundstage for an immersive audio experience are your top priorities and you mostly listen in quiet areas, then the AKG K712 Pro could be the better choice. Give Feedback

"The SonoFlow is cheap and fun, without going too far into being overly warm or annoyingly grating, or sharp sounding. The ANC features are lovely with strong app integration and excellent battery life."

"AKG has created a mini-masterpiece in my opinion. I enjoy this headphone a great deal and it will become my go-to reference headphone for the time being. She is slick, sexy, well-balanced, and crazy comfortable."
