The 1More Sonoflow provides wireless connectivity, active noise cancelling, a longer battery life, and is suitable for air travel with its portability and noise isolation. However, the Audio Technica ATH M20X scores higher in overall sound quality and soundstage, making it better suited for critical listening and TV and video experiences. The ATH M20X lacks a microphone and built-in controls, whereas the Sonoflow supports those features. If wireless convenience, active noise-cancelling for noisy environments, and extra features like a mic are important, the Sonoflow is more fitting, albeit at a higher price. For a budget-focused buyer prioritizing sound, the M20X offers better value. 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."

Soundguys

Jasper Lastoria | September 2023
"Audio-Technica positively defies what you can expect for around $50. Ultimately, Audio-Technica did not design the ATH-M20x to go on the subway with you. It’s for the budget-conscious, do-it-yourself producer, podcaster, or studio that needs to buy tracking cans in bulk. If you don’t need the most deluxe, comfortable headphones, maybe you’ll like the ATH-M20x for its spartan functionality. The headphones are aimed at giving you the minimum requirements without it feeling like a sacrifice."
