If you prioritize sound quality for music and have a higher budget, consider the 7hz Timeless, which offers very good overall and music sound quality along with a planar driver for a balanced sound, but lacks wireless convenience and is not recommended for exercise due to poor sweat resistance. On the other hand, if you seek affordability, versatility, and features like sweatproof certification, wireless connectivity, and app support, the Baseus Bowie MA10 is suitable, especially for use during exercise and air travel, despite its lower sound quality for music. The Bowie also supports AAC codec for better sound on Apple devices and has a longer battery life, which could be crucial if you're often on the go. Give Feedback

Headphonesty

Kazi Mahbub Mutakabbir | May 2023
"7Hz picked a bold name for the Timeless and frankly, got very close to justifying their word choice. Most importantly, the Timeless are good to go in stock form, so you don’t have to worry about source-matching and such. I can recommend the 7Hz Timeless to those who do not mind a dash of brightness up top, want a taste of planar in IEM form, and want one of the most resolving pair of earphones in the $150 - $300 price range."

Simon Cohen | August 2023
"Even if the Bowie MA10 only had some of the features and performance they offer at double the price, they’d be a helluva good value. But given that they far exceed any other earbuds at this price, if you’re looking for an ultra-affordable set of wireless earbuds and you don’t mind their big charging case, you just can’t go wrong."
