If price is a major concern, the 7hz Timeless earbuds are a more budget-friendly option compared to the premium-priced Bose Quiet Comfort Ultra Headphones, offering very good sound quality and a planar driver which is appreciated by audiophiles for its balanced audio. However, the Bose headphones have best-in-class comfort, excellent noise cancelling, wireless capabilities, and a dynamic driver which is versatile for different types of audio content. They also feature low latency, making them suitable for TV and gaming. The Bose model is optimized for both Android and Apple devices and comes with an integrated microphone with good quality, unlike the 7hz Timeless's poor mic quality which might not be ideal for calls. If you travel frequently or work in noisy environments, the Bose Quiet Comfort Ultra may be the better choice. However, if you mainly listen to music in quiet settings and prefer a wired connection, the 7hz Timeless could suffice. Give Feedback

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 Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones are a credible step up from previous Bose ANC headphones, and they're built to hang tough with the competition for years into the future. No waterproofing is a bit of a letdown, but these headphones have the technical chops to make most quite happy."
