Features & Audio Quality
The TOZO OpenReal stands out with its dual-mic active noise cancellation, effectively reducing ambient noise. However, it lacks support for connecting multiple devices, which could have been an additional advantage.
Pairing the earbuds via Bluetooth is simple: for initial pairing, just turn them on, and for pairing with another device, turn them off and back on while holding the power button for at least 3 seconds. A beeping sound confirms successful pairing.
When it comes to audio performance, the TOZO OpenReal impresses with its 16.2mm dynamic drivers, delivering balanced bass and clear sound throughout the spectrum. The performance is immersive and quite satisfactory for all kinds of music.
The noise cancellation works well for outdoor activities, providing effective isolation from external noise for greater immersion. However, at high volume levels, slight sound leakage is noticeable.

The TOZO OpenReal utilizes a 120 mAh battery and charges using a proprietary port. On paper, the headphones can provide up to 14 hours of playback with noise cancellation at 50% volume. In our test, we were able to achieve about 12 hours of usage.
For quick top-ups, a 10-minute charge delivers 2 hours of use. And the earbuds can be recharged back to full battery life in 1 hour.
