A worthy successor to the T6.
Reviewed in the United States on November 27, 2021
Tozo is the undisputed king of the value wireless earphone set. Don't believe me? Then believe the over 126,000 reviews they have for their T6 or the over quarter million (yes folks you read that right, over 260,000 for the T10) . And while I love the T6, these are better.
Tozo makes a wide variety of headphones that provide fantastic value for money. Their NC series even offers active noise canceling for under $100 bucks.
They also offer a wide variety in sound signature. The NC series tend to be warmer and more bass heavy, especially with active noise cancellation turned on. The T10 and T12 also share similar bass heavy profiles.
But I've always preferred the T6 for it's fairly balanced sound profile with just a bit of a bass kick, to sound full, but not muddy.
These T9's share that same ear pleasing profile. Like the T6, these don't have active noise canceling or "transparency" mode. This results in a more balanced sound signature, than their offerings with ANC. This also makes them significantly less expensive. These fit better than the T6, as the L and R sides of T6 are nearly identical, and are easy to get mixed up. This can't happen with the T9. Also, the touch controls are much less finicky.
The carrying case is well constructed, with stronger magnets to keep the earphones in place. Be aware, however, a good shake or jolt with the lid open will cause the earphones to come out. When the lid is shut, this isn't a problem.
The case supports wireless charging as well as USB C, so that is a plus over the T6's micro USB port.
The pairing is also much easier with the T9, and once paired,connection speed is very quick, with the earphones powering up and connecting before you can fit them in your ear.
The T9 comes with 6 pairs of silicone tips, which should be more than sufficient to get a good fit.
Call quality was also good. The mics provided nice clear voice aquality, and calls were easy to understand.
A CON however, is that Tozo doesn't have an app which allows for firmware upgrades, or custom EQ, so your stuck with what's in the box. Luckily what's in the box works and sounds great. Especially considering their sub 50 dollar price tag.
The market is saturated now with sub $100 wireless headphones, so it's unlikely that the T9 will get anywhere near the reviews the T6, but the T9 is better than the T6 in every conceivable way.
No, these won't have Apple, Bose, Sony, or Seinheiser, shaking in their boots. But these they sound amazing, especially for the price. And they are perfect as a workout pair, or to take with you when you don't want to risk your more expensive pair.
Or, if you don't want to spend a lot, and still want a nice set of earphones, these will work out nicely.
