The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
The 1More Evo have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.

Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
1More Evo driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 driver unit is 9.2mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of 1More Evo by 0.8mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
1More Evo's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component generates low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, this implies that Bowers & Wilkins PI7 produce a juicier bass than the 1More Evo
The 1More Evo's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device makes high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that 1More Evo can generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Bowers & Wilkins PI7
1More Evo's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's battery life is less than that of 1More Evo by 3.5 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the vendor, and the 1More Evo's case has a full charge of 20 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's charging case has a battery life of 18 hours, less than that of 1More Evo by 2 hours
It requires 2 hours to fully charge the 1More Evo's battery. It is recommended to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds when they have been in storage for extended periods.
