The 7hz Timeless earbuds, despite usually costing more, do not have wireless functionality like the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II, which may be important for convenience and mobility. If superior overall sound quality and an immersive music experience are top priorities, the 7hz Timeless might appeal more to you; however, for calls and meetings, the Bose provides a better score. Those who intend to use earbuds during exercise or travel might find the sweatproof certification, active noise canceling, and higher scores for use during exercise and air travel of the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II advantageous. Additionally, the Bose earbuds offer app customization features which the 7hz lacks, enhancing the user experience for those who value tailored sound settings. 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."

What HiFi? | September 2023
"Bose’s flagship wireless earbuds were never going to be cheap, but the question was whether they’d be competitive in an area of the market where rivals have never been more capable. The fact that the company has not only managed to implement a successful redesign, but also push the envelope for noise-cancelling and sound quality in such a highly competitive category simultaneously is truly impressive."
