The 7hz Timeless earbuds are a premium choice with a higher price but offer better sound quality for music enthusiasts, a more immersive soundstage and excellent build quality. However, they lack a microphone for calls and are wired, limiting their use during exercise and portability. On the other hand, the JBL Live Pro 2 are less expensive and come with a microphone, making them suitable for calls and meetings. They are wireless with active noise cancelling, and their lightweight design and sweatproof certification make them a good match for use during exercise or travel. If budget is not a concern and you prioritize sound quality primarily for music, go for the 7hz Timeless; otherwise, for versatile use including calls, exercise, and travel within a budget, the JBL Live Pro 2 would be a more practical choice.

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? | February 2023
"The JBL Live Pro 2 TWS occupy an interesting space in the wireless earbuds market. They’re a step up from cheap wireless earbuds and allow you to access better sound quality without having to make the jump to more premium options from the likes of Bose, Sony and Sennheiser. They’re an entertaining listen, easy to use and manage to pack in a lot of useful features. We think they’re well worth a listen."
