The 7hz Timeless offers superior sound quality with more accurate reproduction of music, which may be important if you're an audiophile or use your earbuds primarily for listening to high-fidelity recordings. However, if your concern is cost and you need features like a microphone for calls or virtual surround sound for gaming or watching videos, the JLab JBuds Work Wireless might be a more practical choice. They are also likely to be more versatile for different uses, though their sound quality may not match that of the 7hz Timeless. Consider your primary use and whether the higher cost of the 7hz Timeless is justified for you based on their premium audio performance. 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."

PC Magazine

Tim Gideon | February 2022
"The JLab JBuds Work is an affordable headset-headphone hybrid that you can use to listen to music in stereo and communicate on video calls thanks to a retractable boom mic, and we particularly like its convenient mono and passive wired modes. You won't find any frills here like you will with the costlier Jabra Evolve2 65 or Plantronics Voyager 4220 UC, but for less than half the price, the JBuds Work is an effective lower-cost alternative."
