If you're looking for the best sound quality for music, the 7hz Timeless earbuds have a higher music score and exceptional soundstage, ideal for high-fidelity audio enthusiasts. They are, however, pricier, require a wired connection, and aren't suitable for exercise. In contrast, the Skullcandy Hesh ANC headphones offer active noise cancelling, wireless connectivity, and are better suited for a wider range of activities like travel and exercise due to their design and portability, but they don't match the 7hz Timeless in pure sound quality for music listening. Choose the 7hz Timeless for the best music experience or the Skullcandy Hesh ANC for versatile use and noise cancellation benefits. Give Feedback

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."

"Skullcandy’s Hesh ANC are compact, wireless over-ears for everyday use that are tuned for bass and designed to suppress or amplify ambient noise as required. In addition to Bluetooth 5.0, optional tracking via the Tile app is supported so that these headphones can be found if they get lost."
