If you prioritize sound quality and are willing to manage a cable, the 7hz Timeless offers a balanced audio experience and allows you to purchase specialized cables for even better sound. However, they lack wireless convenience and features like active noise cancellation (ANC). In contrast, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are more convenient with their wireless design, feature ANC for noisy environments, and have an integrated microphone for calls. They're also more portable and offer features like 'find my earbuds' that the 7hz lacks. Choose the 7hz Timeless for audio fidelity in quiet environments, or the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro for versatile use and features in everyday life. 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."

"Consider the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro as your next pair of buds for its excellent active noise canceling (ANC) of low frequencies and comfortable fit. For Samsung users, the integration with your devices is handy and good for productivity."
