The 7hz Timeless earbuds produce a high-quality sound for music but do not include a microphone, making them less suitable for calls and meetings. They're wired with a detachable cable for a stable connection and include cable ear hooks for a secure fit, which may not be ideal for exercise. Though having a higher price, they can provide an immersive listen to music with a good soundstage. On the other hand, the Jaybird Vista 2 is wireless, with a more affordable price point, offers active noise cancelling, sweat and dust proofing, suitable for use during exercise and travel with a secure fit from silicone fins. They also have features like a built-in microphone for calls and an app with customizable equalizer and controls. If you value convenience, exercise-readiness, and call quality, Jaybird may be preferable; for an audiophile focus on music quality, consider 7hz Timeless despite its higher price. Give Feedback

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."

"Compared to the original Vista, the Jaybird Vista 2 adds some key features including ANC and SurroundSense to control how much environmental noise you hear. If you're an athlete and are looking for rugged earbuds with tons of customization options, the Jaybird Vista 2 makes for a good option—but only if you are able to achieve a proper fit from the proprietary ear tips."
