The 1More Sonoflow has better overall sound quality, which will enhance your music listening experience, and superior noise isolation, which is useful for commuting or being in noisy environments. They also offer high-quality codecs like LDAC for better audio transmission. Meanwhile, the Soundcore Life Q20 provides a more balanced soundstage which could be preferable for movies and gaming, and it is rated slightly better for comfort. If you make a lot of calls, the Life Q20 has a higher mic quality score, which could be beneficial. Both models offer active noise cancelling, detachable cables, and foldable designs for portability, but if long battery life is crucial, the Sonoflow lasts longer on a single charge. Consider your priorities in sound quality, mic performance, comfort, and battery life when making your decision. 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."

Sound Guys

Christian Thomas | January 2022
"As far as headphones that cost under $100 go, the Anker Soundcore Life Q20 is a really solid option. Like any good tool, it does the job well without much guff, and it’s affordable to boot. Sure: it’s not going toe to toe with any of the higher-end models of ANC headphones out there—but the headphones do well enough for commuters that it’s a good stand-in if you were never planning on spending a bunch of money anyway."
