TOZO OpenEgo Review: Best Wireless Earbuds for Workout & Regular Use

About a week ago, we reviewed TOZO Tonal Fits T21, which, according to us, is a true Apple AirPods competitor. You can read our full review here. However, due to their design, they might not be suitable for a workout because they are more likely to fall out of the ear.  

A few weeks ago, we received an email from TOZO stating they sent us one unit of TOZO OpenEgo to review. We received these earbuds about two weeks ago and have been using them regularly since then. Here are our thoughts on this product.

Tozo Openego - First Impressions

At first glance, they have a peculiar and unique design that not everyone will like. We were pretty skeptical about how they would feel on the ears, especially how to wear them properly. But in our case, we needed no twist action while wearing them; we just slid them on the top of the ear, and surprisingly, it was quite a perfect fit. However, we think that not everybody will feel this way about it.

Tozo Openego - Earbuds

We received the White color option for the earbuds. The plastic quality is premium, and we think it will retain its color and not turn yellowish like some cheap alternatives, but only time will tell.

The earbuds are plastic on the outer part, and the inner part is made of some rubber-plastic mixture that will ensure that they do not slip while you are wearing them. (At least, that is what we think)

The charging case is huge (almost 2.5x) compared to Apple’s AirPods. However, it is lightweight compared to its size. The stainless steel finish around the case makes it stand apart from simple white plastic cases. You can use a USB C cable to charge this case, but no wireless charging is available for this one.

To review the product fairly, we updated the earbuds to the latest software version using the TOZO app. We will discuss the TOZO app in the latter section of this review.

Comfort

These are hands down the best open buds we have ever tested. We said this earlier about the TOZO OpenBuds, but this is relatively better despite being cheaper.

You can forget that you are wearing them unless you are using them. We cannot say the same for any other earbuds we have used or tested so far. These are the REAL all-day earbuds.

We think they are better suited for people involved in outdoor activities, which also require outside awareness. They are best for running, jogging, cycling, working out, and similar activities. They are IPX5 sweatproof, so you needn’t worry. However, the IP67 or IP68 rating was best for these earbuds.

For additional grip, as well as to make the earpods easier to remove from the case, the silicone tips are provided for both earbuds.

Sound Quality

Since we are dealing with an open-ear design, it is obvious that they will lack bass. Despite the drivers being 16.2mm, the lows of the earbuds cannot be compacted with the earbuds, which go into the ear canal and block them completely.

However, surprisingly enough, the mids are of very acceptable quality. Considering the open-ear design, these might be among the best mids you can get at this price.

As per our testing, the highs of these earbuds sound excellent. The notes are very crisp, and everything is well-controlled.

You can tweak the EQ from the TOZO app, but it won’t make a big difference when it comes to the lows and the bass. Multiple EQs include Bass, classical, Dance, Deep, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Piano, and more. You can set it according to your music taste and preference.

Battery Life & Case

In our testing, the earbuds lasted about 5 hours, and with the case, they will last approximately 30 hours. The case can charge the earbuds back to 100% about 5-6 times.

The case provided with the earbuds will show you the charging percentage of the case and whether the individual earbuds are charging or not.

Tozo Openego - Case

The case can be charged with the USB Type-C port provided at the back of the earbuds. However, we do not get wireless charging like we do on TOZO Tonal Fits T21.

App Features

Like all the other TOZO earbuds, the app will help you manage the latest updates, EQs, Touch Controls, and other features for the earbuds.

Tozo Openego - Tozo App

The basic EQ presets are available on the TOZO app and can be customized according to music taste. The other thing that can be customized and can come in handy are the touch controls. You get four different touch options: tap, double-tap, triple-tap, and long tap. These options can be customized for each earbud, providing you with eight different touch actions.

Moreover, we found that TOZO regularly pushes OTA updates for their devices, and this app will help you run the latest firmware on your earbuds.

Conclusion

If you are looking for earbuds with an open design that are good for everyday use, including workouts, and are IPX5 sweatproof, then this might be an ideal option for you. However, do note that these earbuds do not have very good bass due to the design, and the case is comparatively larger than other devices on the market. You can buy TOZO OpenEgo from here.
