TOZO T10 TWS Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds 2020 Detailed Review.
TOZO T10 TWS Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds: It’s a shame, but there’s no such thing as the perfect pair of earbuds. Because everybody wants different things from their audio equipment. Some people are willing to settle for mediocre sound quality if it means they’re capable of getting an enormous battery capacity. Some people are willing to live with a 2-hour battery if it means they can better audio.
TOZO T10 TWS Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds
The TOZO T10 TWS Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds are a little strange. It’s like someone started making athletic earbuds, and then changed their minds half-way through. From a sound perspective, these are clearly athletic style earbuds. Even the physical quality of their construction suggests a slant towards athleticism.
The charging case is about 1.3” tall and 3.6” long. A good way to visualize the length is by thinking about three quarters, placed side to side. Because a couple of coins is the total length of the case. Additionally, when you’ve got the earbuds inside, the entire case weighs only a couple of ounces.
It’s generally a breeze to shove it in your pocket, stick it in a glove compartment, or otherwise carry these earbuds along with you.
On the front side of the case, a simple analog button helps pop-open the top. The hinge and the button are pretty simple, but as long as they’re not subjected to intentional abuse, there shouldn’t be any problems.
The design of the hinge does suggest that with greatly extended use, it’s possible the case will develop a squeaking noise when opened and closed, similar to old flip phones.
Build & Design
Each bud measures about 0.9” tall and 0.7” wide. That’s pretty close to average, though marginally smaller than many of the bulkier buds that are coming into fashion lately. Additionally, the T10 are constructed with an IPX8 waterproof certification.
That’s pretty much the best waterproofing certification you’ll find on any pair of earbuds. It allows them to survive a full meter of submersion for about half an hour.
You certainly won’t encounter issues when it comes to sweat, rain, or similar forces. The IPX8 certification provides protections against sand and debris as well.
The TOZO T10 create wireless connections with the help of Bluetooth 5. That allows the T10 to support HFP, A2DP, AVRCP, and HDP. You can get stereo sound in your calls, and it means pairing is basically a one step process.
Pop the earbuds out of their charging case, and they’ll automatically pair with each other. At least, after you’ve undergone the initial setup process for the first time.
Thanks to Bluetooth 5 support, you’ll can also get a battery indicator displayed on your Windows, iOS, or Android devices.
Because these are in-ear headphones that do not rely on wing-tips or ear-hooks to secure themselves against your ear, finding the right fit for silicone ear-tips is even more important than usual. Even a small discrepancy in size can lead to some problems.
The TOZO T10 includes two sets of ear tips in three sizes: small, medium, and large. It also includes a thicker and wider ear-tip that’s better for noise isolation.
The standard ear-tips are intended to provide reasonably good noise isolation, but nothing more than ordinary. The wider pair provides a little more noise isolation.
The TOZO T10 is constructed with 8mm audio drivers, which are only marginally larger than the 6mm drivers that are so common for earbuds of this type. But the tiny size difference provides a significant improvement with respect to sound quality. Sometimes small changes can have a big impact.
Bass’s performance is a little boosted but has overall natural quality. The treble range feels a little stunted, perhaps because it’s being contrasted to such well-articulated bass. But that’s actually a pretty common fault for any pair of earbuds that were tuned for athletic performance.
When you plug in the case and begin charging up, three little blue LEDs will light-up within the case. Those lights can give you an idea about the status of your charge. Likewise, a small red LED will come on when the buds are charging, and then notify you when they’re ready.
Most of the time, earbuds are either made specifically for calling, or they use calling features as an afterthought. In the case of the TOZO T10, you’re looking at a pair of earbuds where calling features were pretty clearly an afterthought.
In fact, there’s virtually nothing special about the included microphone at all. Or microphones, rather, because there’s one on each ear earbud.
Who Should Choose the TOZO T10 TWS Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds?
It’s strange. People looking for athletic earbuds often prefer ear-hook headphones for extra security. Other times, they prefer earbuds with winged tips, which press against the inside of your ear bowl. These earbuds don’t deliver on those kinds of extra layers of security, and yet they’re still built with an athletic sound profile.
If you’re relying on the earbud to stay in position without any extra assistance, and you plan on doing athletic activities with these buds, you’re at the mercy of finding a great fit with the silicone ear-tips. You’ll probably be able to do it because statistically speaking, most people’s ears will match up to the included ear-tips.
If you’re willing to wear ear-hooks or use ear-fins, then it’s hard to recommend the TOZO T10 for athletic activities. Because you’d probably be better off with those more secure alternatives. However, if you strongly prefer the simplicity of classic in-ear buds, the TOZO T10 can probably deliver exactly what you’re trying to find. In terms of value, it’s hard to do better without spending more.
