If you want a more affordable option that still offers quality sound and active noise cancellation, the 1More Sonoflow could be a good pick, especially since it supports LDAC for high-resolution audio. However, if you're primarily using the headphones for gaming and don't mind spending more, the EPOS PC38X's open-back design provides a wider soundstage and better directional audio, which can enhance your gaming experience. The PC38X also features a boom microphone, making it superior for multiplayer interactions, whereas the Sonoflow has an integrated mic that might suffice for casual calls but is not specialized for gaming.

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."
