Wireless earbuds are still considered new technology. Unless you’re willing to shell out a bunch of cash, finding a pair that sounds like a dream, connects seamlessly, and doesn’t cost much at the same time can be quite tricky.
The Tozo T10 earbuds have made it to the market with their affordable price and advertised high sound quality. From a distance, the compact design and stellar charging case are eye-catching.
But what about their connectivity, audio performance, and battery? And most importantly, are they the earbuds you’d use for everyday listening or a sporty pair to take with you when running or working out?
We put them under testing in our full Tozo T10 Bluetooth 5.0 wireless earbuds review, and here are our impressions.
At a Glance
Tozo T10 earbuds provide the best bang for your buck. They may not excel in the sound controls or mic quality, but they do a great job in delivering clear highs and rich bass as well as preserving the nature of the tones.
The audio performance is impeccable, and the build quality is top-notch. However, they work better as an everyday pair rather than fitness earbuds. And although its short battery life seems like a weakness, the wireless charging case makes up for it.
- Impressive sound quality
- Comes at a competitive price
- High waterproof rating
- Secure fit
- Durable construction
- Ear tips come in many sizes
- Wireless charging case provides four extra charges
- Subpar microphone quality
- Relatively short battery life
- Lacks sound control settings
- A bit uncomfortable
Tozo T10 Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Earbuds – Detailed Review
After giving you our quick, humble opinion, let’s dig into the details and see if Tozo T10 lives up to the hype.
Style and Design
The first thing you’ll notice is that Tozo T10 earbuds don’t look like their price. Despite their low price, they look and feel expensive. The design is compact and leans more towards athletic, although function-wise, we’d consider the model better for commuting and casual use rather than sports use.
The build quality deserves a few points. Considering the low price, they’re not made of top-class metal, but the used plastic is well-constructed and not too brittle or cheap.
Moreover, they’ve got an IPX8 rating, which means they’re dust and waterproof. This is especially important for small electronics like earbuds as they can sink in the bathtub easily while you’re washing your hands or fall in a pile of dust while you’re walking. Also, you won’t have to worry about them on rainy days.
Fit and Comfort
For some reason, the manufacturers of earbuds tend to forget that people have different ear sizes, so they produce one-size earbuds, which can be a blessing for some and a nightmare for others. Thankfully, Tozo T10 succeeded in avoiding this issue.
They don’t come with ear hooks or ear fins, so they depend on the silicone ear tips to stay attached to your ears. To avoid the size problem, the model comes with four pairs of ear caps in different sizes from which you’ll most probably find your fit.
Comfort-wise, they can be a bit irritating. However, we can’t say it’s the model’s fault but rather the design of earbuds in general. You’ll have to press the buttons on their surface to accept a call or pause a track. This can be uncomfortable since the buttons are too small, and the process causes the buds to be shoved in your ears, which can be painful.
Jumping to the most critical aspect, Tozo T10’s sound quality is fantastic for their price. The incorporated 8mm audio drivers are the perfect size for earbuds. They boast an outstanding balance by reproducing high frequencies accurately while maintaining a clean bass.
The highs and lows are on point, and the sound volume is so great to the point that we didn’t feel the need to turn it to more than 50%. Also, to our liking, there isn’t a hint of synthetic sound, which is something common in earbuds at this price point.
The only drawback we have is the underwhelming sound controls. There is only one button on each bud to control your calls and pause/play a song. You can’t double-click to change or skip tracks. Moreover, there isn’t a companion app for sound adjustments, so you’ll have to settle for the default audio settings.
Battery and Charging Case
True to their words, Tozo T10 provides four hours of battery life on a single charge. However, it shrinks to 2.5-3 hours if you turn the volume to its maximum.
We wouldn’t call this an impressive playtime even with the extra four charges provided with the wireless charging case since you’ll have to leave the buds there for at least an hour to charge. Yet, you can leave one bud to charge and use the other, so getting through a workday won’t be a problem.
As for the charging case, it’s chic and portable. You can toss it in your pocket when you’re heading to the gym or work. Furthermore, unlike other cheap charging cases, it opens easily with a single push button and uses indicator lights to show you the charging status.
The model connects via Bluetooth 5.0, which offers a reliable connection from a long distance. The pairing isn’t much of a hassle since it connects immediately and in one step. It’s also compatible with a subset of Bluetooth profiles, including HSB, HFP, AVRCP, and ASDP, so you’ll be able to make use of all of your earbuds’ functions.
You’ll find the connection strong and consistent, provided that you’re sitting in one place or working out on a stationary treadmill. However, you may experience cuts in the sound if you’re jogging, running, or generally moving around a lot.
Initially, we had high expectations for the mic since the audio quality left a good impression, but our expectations were met with disappointment.
Apart from being a basic mic that works with mediocre performance, the amount of ambient noises it catches is unbearable. We tried completing a call with it, but the sound transmitted was barely clear, and the volume seemed to be below average.

User’s Reviews on Amazon
The overall Amazon rating for Tozo T10 is 4.3 out of 5 based on the reviews of a total of 135,735 users. 65% of the ratings are 5 stars, and less than 10% of them are below 3 stars.
Most of the positive reviews revolve around how good the quality and value for the price these earbuds are. Many have compared their build quality and audio performance to higher-end models, saying that they’re on par with big brands like Apple but at a much lower price.
Another feature that gained lots of praise is the different sizes of ear caps, which helped many users finally find their fit and have earbuds that actually stay in place. Their ease of use and the practicality of the charging case have also left a good impression.
While there are many positive comments about the connectivity being fast and strong for up to 30 feet away, some reviewers complained about either both earbuds or one of them cutting out from time to time. Moreover, the microphone wasn’t one of the model’s points of praise.
So, Are They Worth It?
Taking the whole picture into account, Tozo T10 isn’t the best pair of earbuds out there, but considering the affordable price and the number of features you get, they’re worth it.
We wouldn’t recommend them for users looking for superb microphone quality or athletes who exercise outdoors. However, they’ll do for casual users who want a pair of above-average earbuds for everyday use without breaking the bank.
