If you prioritize wireless convenience and features like an app equalizer and active noise cancelling for a variety of environments, especially during exercise or travel, the Creative Labs Aurvana Ace 2 is a better fit. They are also less expensive and offer battery life with a case that supports wireless charging, suited for longer use without needing cables. However, if your main focus is on sound quality for music and a wide soundstage with a wired connection that reduces latency for gaming and TV, and if you don't mind spending more, then the 7hz Timeless earbuds would be the superior choice. Keep in mind, the Timeless lacks wireless capabilities and has no active noise cancelling, which may be crucial for some users. 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."
