The 7hz Timeless earbuds offer exceptional clarity and detail in music, making them excellent for audiophiles who prioritize sound quality and are willing to invest in higher-priced audio gear. However, for gamers or those who need to multitask, the EPOS PC38X headphones might be the better choice due to their open-back design that provides a broad soundstage, good positional audio cues for gaming, and includes a microphone for communication. If your priority is portable listening with top-notch sound reproduction, go for the Timeless; if you want versatility for gaming and need a mic, consider the PC38X despite a possible trade-off in audio fidelity.

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."

"Lightweight and comfortable design, Mic arm with mute, Excellent tuning, Highly natural midrange voicing, Clean and separated bass, Solid soundstage dimensions. Combining all day comfort and integrated coms with a balanced and spacious sound from essentially any source, it is hard to deny the versatility and value provided by the PC38X."
