Description

As discussed in the introduction above, the original S12 pro are marginally different from the original S12 in these areas: The S12 Pro’s low-end focuses on the mid-bass, with just moderate sub-bass extension. Bass is north of neutral but not at bonafide basshead levels. the imaging is a little fuzzy but I don't listen to much music where instrument direction really matters my go-to is listening to music by joe Hisaishi for imaging To conclude, this iem is great for everyone who can live with its slightly less mid-bass punch and find its comfort to be good enough. Of course, using a quality equalizer can help as well!!

The Tin Hifi P1 was the first entry-level planar to gain real momentum in the audiophile community and it still has a lot of loyal fans to this day. The most immediate difference between the P1 and Timeless is, obviously, the bass: the TImeless has a much stronger bass presence, in particular in terms of sub-bass. However, the P1 has better mid-bass definition and cleaner leading edges. Fortunately, the 7Hz Timeless can take EQ like a champ. If you want some extra grunt and physicality in the bass, try adding a +4dB sub-bass shelf from 150Hz downward. This noticeably improved the slam factor and did not drown out the mids either due to fast transients and the low distortion driver. Adding some sub-bass shelf to the 7Hz Timeless. Midrange IEMs with planar drivers handling the bass frequencies generally have rapid bass transients but do not move air or decay as much as traditional DD drivers, which is the case with the S12 Pro. The T01 module has better pairing overall, expands the stage, adds more details and the treble peaks are more controlled. Life lessons aside. I don't really get it. What does speed mean? You can't play a note faster than it's meant to be played, so what does that leave us? An accurate sound with minimal resonance. Well this daddy likes resonance. And pretty much every type of speaker can play a note as it was meant to be played. So you don't get point for also being able to do it.

The S12 Pro are a bright pair of IEMs; make no bones about it. They have moderate treble extension, sparkle, and air, but for longer listening sessions, treble-sensitive folk might have an issue. Somewhat odd design that I wouldn’t really like wearing in public because of the big disk that protrudes out of the ear For a magnetic planar, 7Hz Timeless offers good airy timbre as compared to TIN HiFi P1 (which sounded almost airless), FOSTEX T40RP MK3 and Monolith M565c. Again, I am hearing something which is more common to Dynamic Drivers or Electrostatics (true Electrostatic). But of course, not as much but enough to feel the sensation of air between the notes.

The Timeless have a two-piece shell design. The seam where the two pieces join can be felt with fingernails and is uneven in places. The outer shell has a coin-like shape that gives a distinct look to the IEMs. The inner-shell meanwhile, has a more traditional IEM shape. The Timeless just can't get there on it's own. It gets close, but doesn't hit the sweet spot which is disappointing.

Treble - High hats can come across as a little hot as the treble is forward along with the mids. It isn't distasteful but it does stop you from driving the Timeless to higher volumes to get more of those mids. . . . If you can. Tests were done with a Khadas Toneboard DAC -> Schiit Asgard 3 amp, E1DA 9038, Questyle M15, Colorfly CDA M1, Tempotec Sonata HD Pro (BHD firmware mod), smartphone, and Sony NW A-55 DAP (Walkman One mod) using FLAC and WAV files. The 7HZ Timeless AE has a pretty airy soundstage atmosphere that offers a slightly bit more headroom compared to the Original Timeless. The separation and placement of instruments and vocals across the stage is fairly realistic. The soundstage of the Timeless AE shows an adequate level of wideness, while the depth and height is on a moderate level. Soundstage & Imaging. What can I say? I am floored with this 7Hz Timeless. The staging is wide, spacious and with great depth and height for a magnetic planar IEM. Such a stark contrast vs the narrow-ish TIN HiFi P1. At times the 7Hz even made my FOSTEX T40RP MK3 sounded confined in! But this largely depends on the prowess of the source and amplification. On my Sony Phone, there’s nothing to talk about, the soundstage is rather almost “meh”. However, it is a different story with the combo of TempoTec Sonata E44 feeding 4 Vrms of Line-In AUX to VE RAP5 amplifier and driving the 7Hz Timeless. The headstage offered headphone like experience with lots of air and sense of space. What remained consistent, spatial imaging is very holographic especially for song that are optimized for such listening experience. Power it right and there’s great soundstage awaiting.

Also worth noting is that out of a computer or laptop the Timeless is giving you a much better sound. On desktop- N6ii LO and A30s (Burson V5i D) and XDUOO MT602 Sylvania tubes ( beautiful pairing but then low gain on N6ii and also volume at 05 ) have been used. While there are no protruding or awkward edges, the S12 Pro’s nozzles are pretty short. Thus, those with bigger ears may encounter the shell pressing on the concha, leading to slight discomfort, especially when it comes to longer listening sessions. YMMV. Internals vs Audeze iSine 10​Without the Cipher cable the iSine 10 sound horrible. They are an uncontrolled, peaky mess from analog sources and are practically unlistenable. The story changes drastically with the Cipher cable. In terms of negatives, the S12 Pro may be a tinge bright for treble-sensitive folk, and vocal and midrange lovers might need to consider alternatives due to a depression in the lower mids.

7Hz Eternal Specifications

Without the Cipher cable the iSine 10 sound horrible. They are an uncontrolled, peaky mess from analog sources and are practically unlistenable. The story changes drastically with the Cipher cable. In terms of quality, bass texturing is pillowy and sometimes can sound undefined, but bass speed is lightning fast and can cope with complex bass movements. There’s just a hint of mid-bass bleed, but thankfully the bass does not encroach much into the midrange. Midrange
