If you prioritize a more immersive music experience and are an Apple user, the AirPods Max provides greater soundstage and is optimized for Apple devices. However, they come with a heftier price tag. 1More Sonoflow offers a solid overall sound quality and comfort at a lower cost, plus they have a significantly longer battery life and are also foldable, making them more travel-friendly. AirPods Max stands out with better build quality, active noise cancelling, and an integrated microphone for clear calls and meetings. For gaming and TV usage, remember that neither of these has low latency, making them less ideal for those applications. 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."

"Objectively, the AirPods Max is a spectacular pair of headphones. I appreciate the smart features like auto-pause and the transparency mode are super practical. It also sounds great, is well-built, and has solid battery life."
