TOZO T10 Review: The Best Under $30?
If you get the most recent version of the TOZO T10, you’ll have a pair of true wireless earbuds that work well and don’t break the bank. There’s a lot of extra bass, and the battery life isn’t great, but that’s not enough to make the whole thing bad.
Since a while ago, TOZO has been making cheap but reliable true wireless food. The TOZO T10 is another inexpensive product from the company. This time, it has a low profile and is built to be waterproof. Is that enough for it to be a good workout partner?
Note from the editor: This is the first draft of the article. As the market changes, we’ll let you know.
This is a review of the TOZO T10: We put the TOZO T10 through its paces for a week. Since there isn’t a companion app, there’s no way to find out what firmware version the earbuds use. For this review, SoundGuys bought the unit.
How is it to work with TOZO T10?
If you’ve used true wireless earbuds before, the TOZO T10 should be easy to figure out. This item is made of black plastic and is very simple. There is no active noise cancellation and no app, so there aren’t really any other features. Each earbud has a touch-sensitive panel on the side, but other than that, you get what you see.
The TOZO T10 is pretty simple to put together. It has a typical stemless look and is made of smooth plastic. The earbuds are comfortable, but they don’t have a physical feature like a hook or fin to keep them in your ear, so it’s important to find the right size ear tip. TOZO comes with five more pairs of ear tips in different sizes and shapes (XL to XXS for a total of six), but if you’ve always had trouble keeping earbuds in your ears, this is probably not the product for you.
The earbuds have an IPX8 rating, which means they are waterproof enough to be submerged for up to 30 minutes in a meter of water. Moisture protection like this is more than enough for a sweaty gym session. However, if your earbuds tend to fall out, you probably shouldn’t do exercises with a lot of head movement. When I run, I often have to reach up and adjust them.
How do you make the TOZO T10 work?
The TOZO T10 are good headphones that are truly wireless. Their sound is heavy on bass, which is good for fans of EDM or hip-hop, but some people may find it too much. They don’t have a companion app, so you can’t change the way they sound or how their controls work. They’re not very comfortable, and the buttons are hard to press, which means that when you do press them, the earbuds may get pushed too far into your ear. Their battery life of 3.5 hours isn’t great for truly wireless headphones, but their case can hold up to four extra charges. On the plus side, their charging case can be charged wirelessly, which is rare for headphones at this price point. Both the case and the earbuds are rated IPX8, which means they are waterproof, but we don’t test this yet.
The TOZO T10 has a variety of controls on the earbuds. Since there is no app for the earbuds, there is no way to change them. The tap controls are easy to use, but the touch-sensitive panels are not very responsive. I usually have to try more than once to skip forward or back in a song, and it’s even worse when my hands are sweaty at the gym.
How do I connect the TOZO T10?
Surprisingly, these headphones do a great job of blocking out noise. Even though they don’t have active noise cancellation (ANC) like some more expensive options, they do a good job of blocking out background noise if you use the tips that come with them. They do a great job of blocking out both mid-range and high-range noises, which will help with background chatter and noise from AC units. They might not be the best at blocking out the low rumble of bus or plane engines, but they do a better job than most earbuds that don’t have ANC. The TOZO T10 Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Earbuds leak very little sound, like most closed-back in-ears. Most of the leaked audio is in the high frequencies, so it will sound very thin. These are a good option for using at work without bothering others, since even at moderate volumes, the leakage should be covered up by the other noises in a typical office or home.
The TOZO T10 has the same basic ways to connect as most of the latest truly wireless earbuds. The earbuds connect using Bluetooth 5.3 and support both the SBC and AAC audio codecs, which are needed for a device to be Bluetooth 5 or higher. There are no fast pair, multipoint, or low latency modes here.
How long does the battery in the TOZO T10 last?
Depending on where you look, TOZO says the T10 can last up to 6, 8, or 10 hours, but in our tests, we found it to be on the very low end of that range. When real music was played continuously at 75dB (SPL), the earbuds lasted for 6 hours and 32 minutes on a single charge. This is pretty good for a truly wireless product, but it’s a big difference from some of the numbers that have been given. The case seems to hold enough charge for 35 more hours of listening, and nothing we’ve seen during the review period has made us think otherwise.
This is fine as far as battery performance goes, but it won’t set the world on fire, at least not in a metaphorical sense. The environmental cost of true wireless earbuds is pretty high, and the TOZO T10 is no different. Since these earbuds have to be charged and recharged all the time, they probably won’t last more than a year or two.
How good is the TOZO T10 at blocking out sound?
The TOZO T10 blocks out some noise, but it doesn’t do a very good job of it. Even if the seal isn’t great, you shouldn’t miss much of what’s going on around you with these in your ears. Since there is no active noise cancellation (ANC), the only way to get this good of a result is to make sure you have the right size ear tip. It’s a good thing TOZO gave you so many to choose from.
How do you play the TOZO T10?
The TOZO T10 sounds like a lot of cheap earbuds. Our tests show that the frequency response has a lot more emphasis in the bass and high-end ranges. This doesn’t necessarily sound bad, but if you’re not looking for a lot of bass, it could be pretty distracting. It’s a long way off from our internal target curve both below 200Hz and between 4Khz and 12Khz.
Can you make phone calls with the TOZO T10?
You can make phone calls with the TOZO T10, but I wouldn’t suggest it. Every time I talked to someone on the phone about these earbuds, they immediately told me how bad I sounded. The T10 microphone sounds muffled and quiet, and the speech sounds like it was processed in a way that you can hear. It works, but you may have to repeat yourself to be understood, so it’s best to keep things short and simple.
In conclusion, the TOZO T10 review shows that the TOZO T10 Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Earbuds can be a great choice for running, showering, working out, and using in and around the pool. They have an IPX8 rating. So, they don’t let sweat in and don’t let water in.
We loved everything about these tiny wonders, from how well they fit to how comfortable they were to how durable they were and how good they sounded. The portable charging case makes them easy to carry. These earbuds are right in the middle of the TOZO T6 and TOZO T12 Wireless Earbuds, so they’re almost perfect in every way.
Another great thing about these earbuds is that they don’t hurt your wallet. They are much cheaper than the Apple AirPods or the Jabra Elite Active 75t, but they sound almost the same. Even the bass is pretty good; it’s not too boring or too loud.
We never planned to use them every day, but now that we have them, we do. You can also walk well in them. We thought they would fall a few times. But if you can find the right ear tips, these headphones won’t fall out even once. Also, the battery life is great. The TOZO TOZO T10 Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Earbuds are easy to use, comfortable, durable, affordable, have good sound quality, and are waterproof.
