TOZO OpenEgo Review

TOZO has a big selection of Bluetooth earbuds and introduced their first open-air earbuds with the OpenReal, and OpenBuds. The OpenEgo is the latest pair of open-air earbuds in their open-air product line. These earbuds have been rather inexpensive, and then OpenEgo follows that with its $49 price tag. Let’s see how the OpenEgo handles its open-air design.

Look & Feel

The OpenEgo earbuds are true wireless, with ear loops that hang on your ears. While they’re good looking earpieces, the feeling of wearing them can be quite distracting. They’re not uncomfortable, but the way they hang off of your ear makes them constantly move around. You can combat this with the provided rubber sleeves that you can attach to them, but it doesn’t make them completely stationary.

Design & Functionality

The OpenEgo uses 16.2mm dynamic drivers supported by TOZO’s OrigX technology. While these are large drivers in comparison to most wireless earbuds, it has a quieter output. Using the tap controls is very handy though, as the touch sensors are very responsive. The TOZO app also gives you access to extra features like EQ that has 16 different presets and other sound personalization modes.


You can expect a highly stable wireless connection with the OpenEgo thanks to Bluetooth 5.3. Only standard CODECs are available.

Battery Life

After some quick charges from the case, the OpenEgo should last you around 30 hours before you need to recharge them. This is definitely a solid amount of battery life for the price.

Being open-air earbuds gives the sound a few benefits, namely the soundstage. With that, the OpenEgo doesn’t feel like it has any apparent barriers in its stereo field. Your music is presented linearly but extends wide and into a naturally open headspace. It doesn’t quite feel like listening to speakers, but its ability is definitely impressive for wireless earbuds. There’s no real height or depth to it, but the specific sound elements are still localized naturally. It’s a flat space that provides enough separation and blank space for the sounds to occupy in a balanced form.

Low End

A common factor that I’ve experienced with some of the recent open air earbuds I’ve tried is their lacking bass. It’s hard to convey a sense of weight or impact with this design, but the OpenEgo does its best to give it shape. While the bass lacks significant drive, there’s a layer of bass here that reads as good enough. It propels the mid-bass frequencies it can toward that front to give the timbre some form of identity, but the results are few and far between.


There’s a surface to the midrange that offers space for the instruments to convey their tone. While the OpenEgo struggles to reproduce midrange frequencies with any real energy, the surface has a clean timbre. Instruments are pleasant, and presented with admirable clarity for the price. You won’t find any color to it, even in vocals, but the balance is consistent with most genres.


The frequency content of the treble is a lot richer than the rest of the sound signature. You can sense a lot more flavor to the tone, as the highs come through with expressive shimmer. There’s a crisper edge to the timbre, but it doesn’t form any excessive brightness. Everything is well controlled, and it only results in a more colorful instruments.


I like seeing how these brands can further develop open-air earbuds designs into some exciting earbuds. While I’ve liked quite a few, the OpenEgo reminds me that there’s a lot of work to do before they can compete with in-ears. On its own, the OpenEgo are a good pair of inexpensive earbuds. Certain sound properties are flawed, but it does enough to be easy to enjoy, which is all you can really ask for. It gets what it needs to mostly right, however, the comfort is still not the best. It might be something that you need to get used to overtime, but the OpenEgo providing accessories to fix this still highlights its shortcomings.

Pros Cons
  • Wide soundstage with good separation
  • High frequency detail
  • In-app EQ
