If you prioritize high-fidelity music listening and are comfortable with a wired connection, the 7hz Timeless, though more expensive, offers superior sound quality and build. However, for daily use like calls and casual listening, or if you need wireless convenience and water resistance, the Soundcore P20i is a budget-friendly choice with decent audio, added portability of a wireless design, and sweatproof certification for exercise.

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."
