The 7hz Timeless earbuds excel in overall sound quality and are better suited for music enthusiasts, offering a higher level of audio detail and a wider soundstage, with a detachable cable for added durability. The Beats also fold for portability and have integrated controls, but their sound quality, while good, doesn't quite match the 7hz Timeless. Consider your budget and whether your priority lies in sound fidelity or in features like wireless convenience and portability. 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."

"The Beats Solo3 Wireless is an old set of headphones but still works reliably well with iPhones, due to W1 chip integration and AAC support. The Beats Solo3 Wireless holds up well today with just a few features showing its age."
