If price is a major factor, you may lean towards the 1More Sonoflow, as they offer good sound quality and comfort at a lower price point compared to the Sony WH-1000XM5. However, if active noise cancellation and advanced features such as touch controls, app support with equalizer settings, and superior call quality are important to you, the Sony WH-1000XM5 may justify the extra cost. They are also known for being top-tier in terms of noise cancellation technology. Keep in mind that the Sonys may offer a more premium build quality and potentially better long-term durability. Consider how you prioritize each of these aspects to make the best choice for your needs. 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."

Kazi Mahbub Mutakabbir | February 2023
"The Sony WH-1000XM5 are the best Sony Bluetooth headphones so far and one of the most well-rounded Bluetooth headphones around. Look no further if you need class-leading ANC with a mostly inoffensive sound signature. Just be ready to pony up the price premium."
