If excellent sound quality is your priority, you might prefer the Etymotic ER2SE, as they offer superior overall sound and soundstage. These are ideal for a critical listener preferring accuracy and detail in their audio. However, they lack a microphone and don't have wireless capabilities. Also, note that they provide intense noise isolation, which can be great for travel but less suitable if situational awareness is important. On the other hand, the 1More Sonoflow headphones are more versatile with both wired and wireless options and have a built-in microphone, making them convenient for calls, and they are better suited for use during exercise due to their design and durability. They also feature active noise cancelling and a more convenient foldable design that enhances portability. The battery life allows for extensive wireless use, making them suitable for long periods without needing a recharge. Therefore, if convenience, flexibility, and features like a microphone and wireless connectivity matter to you, and you’re content with fairly high sound quality, the 1More Sonoflow might be the more suitable option.

"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

Lily Katz | April 2022
"Etymotic isn’t playing around: it takes audio seriously and has mastered the art of the noise-isolation earphone. Sure, the fit of the earbuds looks silly but it’s a signature Etymotic thing and could be considered charming by some. If you’re looking for best-in-class audio for a realistic price, the ER2SE is it."
