TOZO OpenEgo

Can these TOZO OpenEgo open-ear headphones compete with in-ear models? Is there a reduction in audio quality? Are they comfortable? All will be covered in today’s review for the TOZO OpenEgo.

Recently there’s been an explosion of open-ear type audio gear, air conduction technology has really improved over the last couple of years, now, this once exclusive technology has filtered down to the affordable audio consumer market.

So, how does air conduction work? Sound transmits (via sound waves) and the vibrations are picked up by your ears, this is then transferred to tiny bones in your ears, they send the signal to your brain, which records it as sound. This then leaves your ear canals clear to also register environmental noise, such as traffic, making air conduction audio ideal for outdoor and exercise use.

That’s all the science stuff done. Now, back to the review for these TOZO OpenEgo headphones. I’ve been lucky to review a few things for TOZO now, they’re an awesome audio brand in my opinion, producing brilliant sounding products, but at a reasonable price.

As expected with TOZO, the TOZO OpenEgo headphones come with fantastic features such as a dual microphone noise cancelling feature, to make clear calls. An extra long battery life of 30 hours, IPX5 sweat-resistant and you’re free to choose from 16 different equalizer modes from within the supported TOZO app.

Packaging and Contents.

The TOZO OpenEgo headphones come packaged in a cardboard box, which shows product images and specifications printed on it. The box measures 10.0cm x 9.0cm x 4.0cm and weighs 162G.

TOZO OpenEgo.

The TOZO OpenEgo headphones come in either black or white. TOZO sent me the white pair. Each headphone measures 58.5mm x 36.0mm x 19.0mm and weighs just 11G each. A funny thing happened when I was photographing these. I thought I had lost them, I was searching around frantically trying to locate them, only to discover they were on my ears all along. That’s how comfortable they sit on your ears, you forget you’re wearing them, never has that happened to me previously. So, 100% comfortable and perfectly balanced on your ear.

The battery case measures 75.5mm x 68.1mm x 29.1mm and weighs 87G (this includes both headphones too). You get a single USB-C charging port located on the back. On the front you get LED charging status, behind a chrome designed band, which I think looks pretty cool!

They also sit really cool in the charging case too, although this does take some getting used to. I spent far too long and multiple times switching them around, upside down, back around again, turn them over, back to the beginning again, then boom, got it right. As soon as you close the battery case lid, they automatically charge.

Charging and Wearing.

The TOZO OpenEgo charging case takes around 2 hours to fully charge, each headphone takes 1.5 hours to fully charge too. You’re able to charge both simultaneously. Once charged you’re able to enjoy upto 30 hours of audio, although this is a little bit cheeky of TOZO. The 30 hour playtime is based on both left and right headphones being used separately. So, in reality you’re actually getting 15 hours on a fully charged charging case when used as a pair, which of course you’ll be doing.

The battery remaining level of each of the headphones can be checked on both the charging case, and via the TOZO app.

Once charged, you’ll be jumping to wear the TOZO OpenEgo headphones, they slide over the ear. You then rotate them slightly so the speaker area is aligned with your ear. You can also use the supplied silicone braces if you find them moving about whilst wearing. These braces add a little friction to prevent slippage, although I found both headphones didn’t move for me. But, the option is there if needed. As mentioned above, the TOZO OpenEgo headphones are incredibly comfortable, they’re so perfectly balanced on the top of each ear, well, for me anyway.

The TOZO OpenEgo headphones utilises Bluetooth V5.3 technology, with a 10M signal range.

Multi-Function Control.

The TOZO OpenEgo headphones come with multi-function control on each earbud. The touch-sensitive multi-function control area is very accurate, with very minimal accidental errors. You’ll find the touch area located on the TOZO logo of each headphone.

You’re able to control the following:

  • Volume Up: Press and hold the right headphone.
  • Volume Down: Press and hold the left headphone.
  • Skip Track: Double tap the right headphone.
  • Previous Track: Double tap the left headphone.
  • Play/Pause: Single tap either headphone.
  • Answer a Call: Single tap either headphone.
  • Hang Up a Call: Press and hold either tap either headphone.
  • Reject an Incoming Call: Press and hold either headphone.
  • Activate Voice Assistant: Tripe tap either headphone.

You’re also able to change any of these options via the TOZO app.

Sound Quality and App.

As you’d expect from TOZO, awesome sound quality. I wasn’t sure if the same audio quality could be replicated from your typical in-ear TOZO product would be the same for open-ear models. But, I can confirm it’s the same. Sound from the TOZO OpenEgo headphones is clear, whilst still being able to hear background environmental noises too.

TOZO OpenEgo features a 16.2mm diameter driver which provides high-fidelity audio, with around a 30% larger motor coil than conventional types, delivering translucent highs and immersive lows. TOZO OrigX Acoustics goes even deeper into the details of the sound, bringing a more breath-taking listening experience.

The TOZO app is a great addition to all TOZO branded products, you can control so much, all within the app. You’re also able to download software updates, with TOZO promising lifetime updates for the OpenEgo.

The TOZO is free to download and available to both iOS and Android users, you’re able to choose from 16 different equalizer functions, you’re also able to customise your own sound effects. Within the TOZO app you’ll also see the battery percentage of both headphones too.

Wanting to make or receive a phone call? No need to worry about sound quality with the TOZO OpenEgo with in-built dual microphone, calls are clear, with no signal loss.

Latency isn’t the best, but the OpenEgo isn’t designed to be used for audio/visual or gaming, so you get the expected lip sync delay issue.

Conclusion.

I’m very impressed with the TOZO OpenEgo headphones. I was surprised that a pair of air conduction audio items from TOZO has the same quality as I’ve come to expect. But for me the biggest selling point of the OpenEgo headphones is the comfort, literally, you forget you’re wearing them, and i’s not because of weight, at 11G, they’re not the lightest audio gear around, but it’s all to do with how the weight is perfectly balanced on the top of the ear.

I have no issues in promoting these headphones, and would highly recommend them, especially if you’re out and about and need to to still be aware of your surroundings.
