When choosing between the 7hz Timeless and Sennheiser 450BT, consider your preferences and usage scenarios. The 7hz Timeless, despite its premium price, offers excellent music quality with high marks for overall sound and soundstage. However, it doesn't have a built-in microphone, making it less suitable for calls and meetings. On the other hand, the Sennheiser 450BT is more affordable and features good mic quality, active noise cancellation, and a long battery life, which makes it versatile for calls, travel, TV, and gaming due to its low latency feature. However, sound quality for music specifically is higher on the 7hz Timeless. If portability and using headphones during exercise are important, the 7hz may not be the best as they are large earbuds with no dustproof or sweatproof certification, while the Sennheiser headphones are foldable and come with their carry case, although they do not specify exercise suitability either.

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."

"The Sennheiser HD 450BT is a very good pair of headphones for the price, noise canceling is good and sound quality is great—quite rare at this price point. Like any product, this headset isn’t without its faults."
