If superb sound quality for music listening is your primary concern, the 7hz Timeless earbuds would be the better choice, as they offer exceptional performance in this area. However, if you're looking for versatility and additional features such as active noise cancelling, wireless connectivity, and longer battery life, the Soundcore Space A40 may be more suitable for you. The A40 also offers better portability and noise isolation, making them more convenient for travel and exercise, all at a typically much lower price. Keep in mind, the 7hz Timeless earbuds require a wired connection, which can limit mobility and convenience compared to the wireless A40. 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."

Sam Smart | May 2023
"The Anker Soundcore Space A40 is an excellent deal if you want affordable noise canceling earbuds with great sound. The baseline frequency response is enjoyable, and the many EQ presets to choose from plus the ability to customize your sound profile makes it good for pretty much anyone. The noise canceling is quite good, and the many ear tips to choose from ensure a good fit for the noise canceling and isolation to do its job."
