If you're considering price and don't mind sacrificing superior sound quality, the Creative Labs Zen Air offers good value as a budget option. For listening to music, the 1More Sonoflow’s very good sound and noise isolation make them stand out, but they might not be optimal for gaming or TV due to poorer scores in these areas. The Sonoflow headphones also boast long battery life and are suitable for air travel, while Zen Air's stem form factor is beneficial during exercise, and it supports wireless charging, which Sonoflow lacks. Consider Creative Labs Zen Air if cost and exercise use are priorities, or 1More Sonoflow for better music and travel experience. Give Feedback

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."

Headphone Check

Maike Paeßens | February 2023
"The Creative Zen Air’s weak points are its low battery life and rather short Bluetooth range. On the other hand, the strengths of these weatherproof True Wireless in-Ears are the sound and the wide attenuation of the Active Noise Cancellation. Considering the price range, the speech intelligibility during calls is also exceptionally good."
