The 7hz Timeless earbuds, being more expensive, offer a high-quality music experience, superior build quality, and are wired, which means no battery concerns but less mobility. They don't feature a microphone, so they aren't suited for calls. The "Nothing" Brand Ear Stick is less expensive, designed for convenience with wireless connectivity, and optimized for use with both Android and Apple devices. They include features like a microphone with high ratings for calls, low latency mode for gaming, and are rated better for use during exercise given their sweatproof and dustproof design. Consider the 7hz Timeless if sound quality in music is your priority, or the Ear Stick if you need versatility and use your earbuds for calls and physical activities. 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."

Sound Guys

Jasper Lastoria | December 2022
"If the Ear (stick) fits your ears, its light weight means you can easily wear it until the unimpressive battery life totally drains. The IP54 rating of the buds lends some confidence that it’ll survive some light abuse too. Finally, for the person who only wears earbuds at their desk, the Nothing Ear (stick) with its decent microphone could offer a reasonable Zoom meeting solution."
