Which one is better?

I haven’t tried out the laster version of 1More True Wireless ANC with THX certification, from the sound perspective, Sony WF-1000XM3 is winner, but if the first gets the THX certified and everthing improved from sound to ANC performance then it’s harder to decide which one, since once two are matched up for sound, I’m more attempting to pick 1More.
