If you value wireless connectivity and the convenience of built-in controls, the 1More Sonoflow would be the more practical choice, especially if you're seeking quality at a more affordable price. They provide good noise isolation, decent sound quality, and are suitable for a variety of uses including making calls, listening to music, and watching TV. However, if you're looking for the best possible sound experience and have the budget for it, the HifiMan Edition XS with their planar magnetic drivers and exceptional soundstage might be preferable. These open-back headphones are ideal for critical listening and watching videos, but lack wireless capability and built-in controls, and are not the best option for calls or noisy environments due to their open design.

"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."

Eric D Hieger | January 2023
"The Edition XS easily compete with headphones in their price range with a very high price-to-performance ratio. The XS are an amazing value and offer performance not far off from headphones more than twice their cost. These will be a mind-blowing revelation for enthusiasts and music lovers who have only heard standard big-brand mainstream headphones."
