If you prioritize over-ear comfort and higher sound quality, particularly for an immersive experience in music or active noise cancellation for quiet environments, the 1More Sonoflow may be worth the higher price. However, if you're looking for something lighter, more portable, and suitable for exercise with a stemless design, the Creative Labs Outlier Air V3 could be a better, more affordable choice. The Outlier Air V3 also offers sweat resistance, making them more suitable for active use. Note, the Sonoflow offers LDAC support for high-quality audio over Bluetooth, which the Outlier Air V3 lacks, but it does not have a water-resistant design like the Outlier Air V3. 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."

Trusted Reviews

Kob Monney | July 2022
"The V3 present the best version of the Outlier Air series yet. The new features such as Active Noise Reduction and Ambient mode are integrated well; the performance of both is as good as you’ll get below £100. The design is less bulky and more comfortable thanks to being smaller and lighter, and the Outlier Air V3 eke out more clarity, detail and definition from music."
