If you prioritize outstanding music quality and a larger soundstage, the 7hz Timeless earbuds are a superior choice with their planar driver design known for clear, detailed sound. However, for extended wear, you might prefer the Rode NTH-100 headphones, which are generally more comfortable and also slightly less expensive. Both lack features such as active noise cancelling and wireless connectivity, but they are praised for their build quality and come with detachable cables which are useful for longevity. The 7hz Timeless is less suited for exercise due to their size and fit, while the Rode NTH-100 provides slightly better isolation for use in noisier environments. Neither is sweatproof, so if you're an active user, consider this limitation. 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."
