The 7hz Timeless offers a more detailed sound experience, ideal for audiophiles who appreciate the nuances in high-quality audio recordings. They are also built with planar magnetic drivers that tend to have a faster response and hence could better articulate the details in complex music passages. However, they are more expensive, which can be a significant consideration. On the other hand, the Sennheiser CX300S provides a good balance of sound quality and affordability. They are a solid choice for everyday use such as commuting or casual listening. If budget is a concern, the Sennheiser CX300S offers the essentials without a hefty price tag, but if you are after a superior audio experience and are willing to invest more, the 7hz Timeless could be the better option.

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."

Carroll Moore | April 2019
"Sennheiser offers impressive bang for your buck when it comes to the CX 300S. Built like a tank and sounding surprisingly good for such a budget-minded earphone, the CX 300S out-classes many of its would-be competitors. Functional but beautiful, it’s the perfect in-ear listening solution for anyone who wants to hear everything and look good doing it."
