Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 18, 2021
The picture of the earbuds on Amazon’s and Tozo’s website should be updated to give a more accurate depiction of the earbuds. The pictures on each of the sites give the outside of the buds a jeweled appearance rather that what is the actual appearance. I bought this headset with the intent of returning it if it looked too much like jewelry. The appearance of the actual buds is much better than what is portrayed in the pictures. I might have purchased the black ones if I knew it wasn’t going to look like jewelry.

So, on to the review:

The case feels sturdy because it has a slight weight to it. There is a magnet in the cover to prevent it from popping open when it’s bouncing around in a backpack. The 1” wide beveled edge in the front gives enough space to get both of your thumbs on it. So unless you have hands like Shaq, opening the case should be simple. The same is true for removing each bud from its cavity. You can return them to their cavity on the first try instead of fumbling multiple attempts to get them to properly align to the charging contacts. Immediately after contact is made, the case’s display gives you a percentage readout of how much charge remains with the case and a 4 bar display for each of the buds to indicate how much charge remains. After 6 seconds, the display turns off and the only way to see it again is to remove one of the buds. It would be nice to have the ability to use the touch sensor on the buds when they are docked to activate the case display temporarily. It would be even better to have the option to toggle the display on and off through the touch sensors on the buds when they are docked.

The touch sensors are truly touch sensors, rather than large buttons that require you to press down on them until a physical click occurs. You only have to make contact with the sensor in order to issue your command.

The buds come with 6 pairs of tips of different sizes to ensure you have a good fit for your ears.

The buds can also be used as a single ear setup.

Function cues are given in a pleasant female English UK voice:
“Primary” “Secondary” (the voice saying secondary sounds as if she suffered a stroke)
“Your headset is connected”
“Maximum volume”
“Minimum volume”
Pleasant “bloop” sound when increasing or decreasing volume. The “bloop” remains at a constant acceptable volume independent of the music volume
“Power off”
“Power on”
“Your headset is connected”
“Disconnected”
“Pairing”
“Reverse” - which means skip backward
“Forward” - which means skip forward

CLASSICAL
Symphony No.6 in B minor, Opus 74 – Tchaikovsky, Teodor Currentzis

These small earbuds have some big shoes to fill if it is going to play a Tchaikovsky symphony. Some in-ear headphones cause sound reproduction to sound narrowly funneled into the ears as if you are just pressing a speaker to your ear. It’s no way to experience music. This headset sounds immersive. It can surprisingly achieve expansive orchestral sound that performs beyond its $40 anticipated sound quality. Crash cymbals splash at a nice distance on both sides, the brass sound brassy and the timpani boom. The pizzicato on the cellos are voluminous with a warm hum. Sound reproduction is great across the board for orchestral sounds.

- Satisfying for any classical ears. *Erik Satie buys 27...Beethoven crosses arms*

ROCK
Spirit!! - BAND-MAID

It’s a great song to put these headphones to the test since there is such variety with the music, vocals, and backing vocals. Expansive sound even with a 5 piece band. Akane’s quick double kicks and awesome control of the drums in a quick tempo come through cleanly. The headphones are able to reproduce the niceties put into the mixing of the song, so it allows the cymbals to be heard slightly distanced on both sides and the drums sound centered. You get a big, beautiful sound to rock-out to. The headphones allow you to experience the guitars, bass, and vocals being directed to specific stereo fields to add some nuances that don’t get washed out at higher volumes. You can hear the audio of specific notes of instruments being weighted heavier to the left or right as accents to add more richness to the total sound quality. Misa’s growling bass and fills spill out nicely while Miku’s distortion is nice and crunchy.

- Adds extra energy to your cardio and is waterproof.

EDM
Hold Me Close – Flux Pavilion

A nuanced big bass torture test. After being impressed with the booming sound of the timpani in Tchaikovsky and withstanding the energy of Band-Maid, it was time to bash these babies with some serious bass. I put the volume all the way up, leaned forward in my seat and let the sound of the intro buzz into my ears with no degraded audio quality detected. I braced for the bass and didn’t know if the headphones would handle it. Thump, thump, thump into a crescendo and a pause. WE HAVE LIFT OFF!! The bass hit with a tenacity and boom as if this was a cake-walk. Yes, I got goosebumps. The electronic notes still stung cleanly despite all of the beautiful chaos going on with percussion. No muddiness, warping, or distortion.

- GREAT BASS. DAVIE504 would approve.

DEATH TEST
Stepchild of Laceration – Disarmonia Mundi

The only thing left to do is see if these earbuds will hold up under the pressure of the death test. Killer vocals and rapid double bass with heavy riffs and melodic sections. Regardless of how fast the drums played, the speakers were responsive and didn’t begin blending notes. I jumped to another song (by Infant Annihilator) with ridiculous 32nd notes on the drums and the sound remained clean. Jumped back to Stepchild and picked up where I left off. The screams retained their sinister quality even at full volume.

- Impressive audio for your inner demons.

Given the audio quality, features, construction quality, and battery life, this product performs above its price of $40.
