If sound quality for music is a priority and you're willing to spend more, the 7hz Timeless earbuds provide a very good audio experience with their planar drivers compared to the fair sound quality of the Sony MDR-ZX110 headphones. However, the Timeless lacks wireless capabilities and active noise cancelling, and isn't sweatproof, so they may not be ideal for exercise or travel. The MDR-ZX110, while not offering sound quality as high as the Timeless, is foldable and thus more portable. Both lack a microphone for clear calls, built-in controls, and are wired, which may affect convenience. If budget is a concern and you want something more portable, the Sony MDR-ZX110 is the more affordable choice. 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."

"My opinion about Sony MDR ZX110 is they are the best budget headphones of Sony with top-class sound. Clear vocals, great bass, and balanced sound with low sound distortion. The treble could be sharper, but it's ok. 30 mm neodymium dynamic drivers give clear and precise audio, and an inline remote with a mic give decent call quality. Closed-Back Design also helps to improve sound performance."
