Based on your preference and the price factor, if you are looking for more affordable earbuds, the Beats Studiobuds would be a better option as they are less expensive than the 7hz Timeless. However, the 7hz Timeless earbuds are known for their exceptional music quality, so if you prioritize sound quality and are willing to pay a premium price, they may be worth the investment. The Studiobuds offer better features for calls and meetings, use during exercise, air travel, and are more portable due to their wireless nature. They also come with active noise cancelling, which the 7hz Timeless lacks. On the other hand, if having a wired connection and a potentially better soundstage is more important to you, the 7hz Timeless with its planar driver might be the better choice. 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."

Sound Guys

Chase Bernath | May 2023
"For less than the price of the AirPods, the Beats Studio Buds delivers a good fit, great sound, and active noise cancellation. This is also the first set of Apple-owned Beats earbuds to feature quick pairing with Android devices, albeit at the expense of some key features for Apple users."
