The 7hz Timeless earbuds have a strong focus on music quality, with excellent sound and a good soundstage, but they lack features like a microphone or active noise cancelling, making them less versatile for calls, meetings, or noisy environments like air travel. On the other hand, the Bose 700 headphones provide superior comfort, a built-in microphone with good quality for calls, active noise cancelling for quiet listening in various settings, and are optimized with app controls. If you prioritize a wireless option with multipurpose use, including good isolation and better features for calls and travel, Bose 700 might be the right choice, despite being somewhat more expensive. However, if you're looking for a wired experience with a focus on high-quality music listening and can forego features like noise cancellation and a microphone, the 7hz Timeless earbuds are a strong candidate at a slightly lower price.

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

Adam Molina | June 2023
"Bose took active noise canceling and made it mainstream but eventually, the market caught up. Well, it seems like Bose was listening, because the Noise Canceling Headphones 700 is a complete redesign of its iconic product. The Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 have a new design, improved sound quality, a touch-sensitive gesture pad for playback controls, and even USB-C charging."
