TOZO T6 True Wireless Earbuds 2020 Detailed Review.
TOZO T6 True Wireless Earbuds: Whether you listen to music on occasion or every single day, you likely know the importance of finding a decent set of earbuds. Unlike some headphones, earbuds are ideal for on-the-go usage since they’re much more compact than over-ear noise-canceling models.
But they typically come with a trade-off. Their smaller size means less sound can resonate, the fit must be precise, and losing them is a real threat.
If you’ve been on the search for your next pair, you may have come across the TOZO T6. They’re a “true wireless earbud” that has been designed in a way to incorporate plenty of attractive features while maintaining a relatively affordable price-point.
We’ll be taking a close look at their features and limitations in today’s review. Are they a good set to own, or do they fall flat and have us wishing for more?
You may have heard about TOZO when we originally reviewed their T8 and T10 earbuds in the past. If not, you may have never heard of TOZO as a brand, ever before. Truth is, they’re not exactly well-known in the mainstream market, but through Amazon.com, they’ve gained quite a decent-sized following.
Targeting an affordable price-point, thousands of consumers have chosen TOZO earbuds in the past couple of years. It goes without saying that the T6 isn’t a whole lot different in this regard.
They’re priced low enough for most to justify, but not expensive enough that they make people hesitant to purchase them.
Comfort and Fit
Placing the TOZO T6 in your ears for the first time, you’ll need to spend a couple of minutes to determine the correct ear tip for yourself. Included with three different varieties, the pre-installed rubberized tips can easily be removed and replaced with either a smaller or larger size.
At this time, we’d say it’s crucial to achieve a fit that’s snug yet not too tight. This will create a nice seal around them so sound leakage isn’t an issue. Once you’ve done that, you’ll know you have the right tips if you can wiggle your head vigorously without the earbuds falling out.
Charging Case and Battery Life
The charging case is just small enough to keep the earbuds contained without losing them. Roughly the size of the palm of your hand, it makes for a safe and reliable place to store them while not in use.
Best of all, when you place them in the case, the earbuds individual batteries are consistently being topped off. While this isn’t a unique feature to TOZO earbuds, it’s a nice included feature that typically means you’ll rarely need to consider consciously charging them.
The earbuds are advertised to last around 5 hours between full charging cycles. We were slightly hesitant with this claim so we decided to test this out for ourselves.
Upon a full charge, we removed them from the case and decided to listen to them consistently for as long as we could. With the volume set to about halfway, we received a low-battery warning at around 3 hours and 45 minutes. Ultimately, this was a bit unsettling, but also quite understandable.
Now we move on to quite possibly the most important feature of the TOZO T6 – sound quality. Looking at the specifications, it’s clear that they’ve included some nice features to retain high-quality sound.
Utilizing Bluetooth 5.0, the T6 works in conjunction with HSP, HFP, A2DP, AVRCP sound profiles. These are some of the latest standards when it comes to wireless audio transmission, that play an important role in overall clarity and quality.
Although many factors are important, the range of wireless transmission should be taken into consideration. While we don’t think most will need to push the range to the maximum, we felt like it should be determined. Since TOZO doesn’t clearly advertise it, we didn’t know what to expect.
To our surprise, we achieved around 30 feet of range before lag and choppiness become a factor. This was 30 feet “line of sight”, meaning that no obstacles were in the way.
Roughly 30 feet of wireless range seems about the standard in our experience, and quite acceptable at that. Realistically, most listeners won’t need more than that, but we’re happy to have determined how far they can reach.
Most earbuds are designed to withstand a bit of abuse, but the IPX8 rating on the TOZO T6 is quite impressive. IPX8 is much better than the standard IPX6 or IPX5 that we typically see in earbuds in this price range.
What exactly does it mean though? Simply put, the earbuds and case are both rated for complete submersion of water. Although they can only withstand being 1 meter deep for about a half-hour, this is quite good. The earbuds and case both come equipped with a nano-coating that makes this possible.
Truth be told, we don’t have a lot of complaints about the TOZO T6 True Wireless Earbuds. They’re compact, fit well and have plenty of attractive features to make them a good choice for most individuals. While the bass is lacking a little bit, the sound clarity is quite good for this price-point.
Yes, they may not come close to competing with an expensive pair of earbuds like the Jabra Elite 75T, they’re plenty suitable for your average listener.
