If you prioritize sound quality and soundstage for music listening, the 7hz Timeless would be the better choice, but keep in mind they have a cable and are not suitable for exercise due to lack of sweatproofing. On the other hand, the JLab Jbuds Lux ANC headphones offer features like active noise cancelling, wireless connectivity, and a much longer battery life, which are great for air travel and general portability. The JLab Jbuds also have a built-in microphone of better quality, making them more convenient for calls. They're less expensive, too, but their overall sound might not match the 7hz Timeless. If you're on a budget and value features like noise cancellation and wireless convenience over top-tier sound quality, the JLab Jbuds Lux ANC could be the way to go. However, for audiophile-grade listening where sound richness and detail are crucial, and where budget is less of a concern, the 7hz Timeless are the recommended earbuds. 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."
