Choose the 7hz Timeless if sound quality, particularly for music, is your top priority, as they have a more expansive soundstage and slightly better overall sound quality. However, they lack wireless connectivity and are less suitable for exercise due to their size and cable. On the other hand, the Skullcandy Dime 2 are a budget-friendly option with wireless convenience, better portability, and sufficient quality for casual listening. They are also better for exercise and calls, but may not match the 7hz Timeless in terms of detailed audio reproduction for critical listening. 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."

"With the low price, it’s a low-risk investment. The Dime 2 is a decent set of backup buds for those times when you don’t want to risk your more upscale buds. If it weren’t for the lackluster battery life, I’d say everyone should have a pair as a spare for music."
