If sound quality is your top concern, you may prefer the 1More Sonoflow, as they have a higher sound quality score. They also edge out for noise isolation and are suitable for air travel due to their build and portability. With a longer battery life, they are also advantageous if you don't want to charge them frequently. However, if you prioritize features like a great microphone, the Bowers and Wilkins PI7 offer higher mic quality and superior earbud comfort, making them suitable for calls and meetings. Furthermore, the Bowers and Wilkins have active noise cancelling and are optimized for Apple, which the Sonoflow lacks. These features might justify the higher cost for you if they align with your primary needs, such as for frequent video calls or travel in noisy environments. 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."

Sound Guys

Chase Bernath | April 2022
"The primary selling point of the Bowers & Wilkins PI7 is the charging case that can transmit audio from any analog source to the earbuds. If you have a very specific and clear need for that feature, then the Bowers & Wilkins PI7 is for you."
