If you're seeking value and enjoy over-ear comfort, the 1More Sonoflow offers good sound quality and is notably more affordable. They are versatile with both wireless and wired options, and their closed-back design provides nice noise isolation, which is ideal for travel. On the downside, they may not be the best choice for gaming or TV due to poorer performance in those areas. Bang and Olufsen Beoplay EX, while more expensive, excels with excellent audio quality and is geared towards a luxurious experience, including features like an app equalizer and aptX Adaptive codec for high-quality wireless audio. These earbuds are also great for exercise, as they are sweatproof and dustproof. Consider the latter if your focus is on premium sound and you need something for an active lifestyle. 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."

"If you’ve wanted truly wireless headphones, but couldn’t pick them up because they sound terrible, these will be the headphones that win you over. If you’re the kind of person who would consider spending $400 on headphones, these are the right truly wireless headphones for you."
