The 7hz Timeless earbuds offer a premium sound quality with a strong performance in music listening, but they lack a built-in microphone which might not be ideal for calls or meetings. They also have a wired connection, which can limit movement compared to wireless options. On the other hand, the Beats Powerbeats Pro, being somewhat less expensive, provide a wireless experience and are designed with a secure fit for exercise, as well as having a built-in microphone for calls. However, the Powerbeats may not match the sound quality of the 7hz Timeless for dedicated music listening. If you prioritize exceptional audio for music over convenience for calls and exercise, the 7hz Timeless could be the better option, despite the higher cost and lack of wireless functionality.

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."

"Sweat resistance, actual noise isolation, and a secure fit in your ears make these the true wireless earphones you want in Apple-land. Android users may find other options they like better, as these only support AAC."
