The 7hz Timeless earbuds offer excellent music quality with strong soundstage and imaging, making them a fine choice for immersive music experiences, though they are less suited for calls and exercise due to lower scores in those areas. If you opt for the Sennheiser 560S headphones, you'll enjoy a higher overall sound quality and a better experience for TV and video due to their open design, which also contributes to a more natural soundstage. However, being open-back, they don't isolate sound well, making them less ideal for noisy environments. The 7hz Timeless might be more expensive upfront, but they come with a detachable cable, a feature the Sennheiser 560S also has, albeit with a differing driver type. Neither are wireless, so you should consider this if mobility and freedom from cords are important to you. Give Feedback

"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."

"Sennheiser made a near perfect pair of studio monitors with the HD 560S. Flat bass response? Check. Neutral and uncolored midrange? Check. Extended treble with a bit of lower-treble emphasis to highlight mastering flaws? Check. Fairly easy to drive? Check. Good soundstage and imaging? Check, and check."
