Tozo Golden X1 review: wireless ANC headphones with customizable audio

The Tozo Golden X1 earbuds provide audio customizations and deep bass — even if you don't have deep pockets.

While Tozo might not be a widely recognized name, it has a dedicated following on Amazon, where some of its products have garnered over 300,000 ratings. Among their budget-friendly offerings is the Tozo NC9, a pair of wireless earbuds with decent performance.

For those seeking a more premium option, the Tozo Golden X1 delivers rich sound quality and additional features. Whether you're enjoying music on your iPhone or watching shows on your iPad, you may find the performance of the Tozo X1 earbuds pleasantly surprising.

However, despite working well with Apple devices, the Tozo X1 earbuds do not provide the same audio experience and integration as the AirPods Pro. These wireless earbuds might be a good alternative if you're not focused on features like spatial audio and Apple's Handoff.

Tozo Golden X1 — audio performance and customizations

Although the Tozo Golden X1 earbuds lack the Apple Handoff feature, they do offer multipoint connectivity, allowing you to connect to two devices simultaneously. This enables seamless switching between your iPhone and iPad.

The Tozo X1 earbuds lack in-ear detection capabilities, so they won't perform the AirPods' neat trick of playing music when you put them in your ears.

Nevertheless, the Tozo X1 earbuds deliver excellent sound quality and feature active noise cancellation (ANC). The ANC functionality underwent testing across different sound environments, demonstrating impressive reduction of ambient noise.

These earbuds boast 12mm dynamic drivers capable of reproducing treble up to 44.1kHz and bass down to 12Hz. They were evaluated with a range of music genres on Apple Music, producing remarkably clear treble and robust bass.

Additionally, users can enhance their experience by downloading the Tozo app and taking an auditory test called the Earprint test. This test allows for personalized audio adjustments based on individual hearing needs.

The auditory test involves listening to a series of low to high-frequency beeps and indicating whether you can hear them. It only takes about a minute, but doing so can improve your listening experience because the earbuds will compensate for any hearing deficiencies.

Also, you can choose from 16 EQ presets or create your sound profile. You can select from six noise reduction modes and change the touch controls according to your preference.

Although you are not required to download the Tozo app or take the auditory test, these are excellent options if you want more control over your listening experience.

The earbuds have environment noise cancellation (ENC) microphones that help filter out background noise. They were tested during a 2-hour call, and there were no issues with interference or latency the entire time.

Tozo Golden X1 - comfortable for all-day use

The Tozo X1 earbuds have a short stem. This design puts the microphone closer to your mouth while staying out of the way during daily activities, like washing your face or putting on makeup.

While these earbuds are not waterproof, they are IPX6 water-resistant and can withstand some water or sweat exposure.

To ensure proper ANC and all-day comfort, you must wear the correct size of ear tips to create an appropriate fit in the ear canal. The box includes six ear tip pairs for you to choose from, with sizes ranging from XS to XXL.

The earbuds were very comfortable to wear for hours without causing any discomfort or fatigue.

Tozo Golden X1 — battery life

According to Tozo, these earbuds can last up to 8 hours on a single charge, and up to 32 hours when used with the charging case. There is a USB-C port on the charging case, and you'll also get a USB-C cable, but you can also charge these wirelessly.

One drawback is that the earbuds do not support fast charging, so you must be mindful of how much battery you have left throughout the day. Thankfully, these earbuds make it easy for you to keep track of battery life.

The inside of the charging case has an LED display that shows each earbud's battery level. You can also check the battery status on the Tozo app.

Since Tozo offers a broad range of low-priced earbuds, you might be surprised at the comparably higher cost of their X1 earbuds. Although they might be cheaper than other high-end earbuds with similar features, you may still prefer to spend your money on well-known brands in the market.

The Tozo Golden X1 earbuds are a solid choice if you want rich audio tailored to your hearing needs and sound profile. That is, if the lack of brand recognition doesn't deter you.
