The 1More Sonoflow is more affordable and offers a closed-back design, wireless and wired connectivity, decent overall sound quality, and is relatively portable with good battery life, making it suitable for casual listening and use while exercising. Conversely, the Audeze Maxwell might cost more but provides superior sound quality, excellent comfort, better call quality, active noise cancelling, and superb scores for gaming and TV/video, with the tradeoff of being heavier and less portable. If cost is a concern and you need good all-around headphones, the 1Mores are practical; if you prioritize audio fidelity and feature set for home use, the Audeze Maxwells are the better option.

Headphonics

Michael | January 2023
"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."

Sound Guys

Christian Thomas | August 2023
"Despite a few caveats, the Audeze Maxwell is one of the best-performing gaming headsets on the market and should top the ranks for a few buyers — provided the budget (and neck strength) is there. Gaming headsets have their work cut out for them, and their audience is historically unkind to performance flaws. If you’re an older gamer with some cash to blow, you should be pleased with the Audeze Maxwell."
