The TOZO T6 are a decent pair of truly wireless headphones. They're small and lightweight, and their decently comfortable fit should be suitable for extended listening sessions. Their out-of-the-box sound profile is somewhat well-balanced and should be well-suited to a fairly wide range of genres. They last nearly 5.5 hours off a single charge, and their case holds an additional four charges, so you'll be able to get a full day of use out of them provided you take a small break for a recharge. The case can be charged with any Qi-enabled wireless charger, which is a very nice addition at this price point, and the headphones are rated IPX8 for waterproofing, though we don't test for this. Unfortunately, not everyone will be a fan of the touch-sensitive controls, and they don't have a companion app for any customization options.

Our Verdict

7.0 Mixed Usage

The TOZO T6 are decent truly wireless in-ears for mixed usage. They last just over five hours off a single charge and their case provides an additional four charges. They're stable and comfortable enough to take to the gym, and you should be able to wear them for longer periods without feeling too much fatigue. Unfortunately, they won't help block out train or bus engine noises during your daily commute, though they'll help with blocking out background chatter. On the upside, their sound profile is fairly well-balanced, and they should be decently suited for a wide range of genres.

6.6 Neutral Sound

The TOZO T6 are alright headphones for neutral sound listening. While their sound profile is somewhat well-balanced, it isn't the most neutral and will likely be a bit too punchy for fans of flat and neutral sound reproduction. They likely won't be the best match for genres like jazz or classical, but should be decently well-suited for most popular genres.

See our Neutral Sound recommendations
7.6 Commute/Travel

The TOZO T6 are a good option for commuting or travel. They're decently comfortable, and their 5.3-hour battery should be fine for most commutes and shorter flights. Unfortunately, they don't block out the low rumble of bus or plane engines very well, though they'll help to block out the chatty person in the seat next to you. Their charging case feels well-made and is fairly small, so you should be able to easily toss it into most pockets or bags without any issues.

See our Commute/Travel recommendations
7.9 Sports/Fitness

The TOZO T6 are a very good pair of truly wireless headphones for taking to the gym. Despite not having stability fins, they should stay in your ear quite well during most runs or workouts, and their control scheme is easy to use, so you can easily change tracks or pause your music without interrupting your workout. They're also rated IPX8 for waterproofing, though this isn't something we currently test for.

See our Sports/Fitness recommendations
6.7 Office

The TOZO T6 are a decent pair of headphones for the office. They leak almost no audio, so you should be able to blast your music without bothering your colleagues. They also do an excellent job at blocking out chatty coworkers, so you can stay concentrated on your work. Unfortunately, they won't last an entire work day off a single charge, though you can easily charge them up in their case on your lunch break to get you through an entire day.

See our Office recommendations
5.1 Wireless Gaming

The TOZO T6 are Bluetooth-only headphones that aren't compatible with PS4 or Xbox One. While they'll connect to a Bluetooth-enabled PC, they aren't recommended for this due to their high latency and sub-par overall microphone performance.

See our Wireless Gaming recommendations
5.0 Wired Gaming

The TOZO T6 True Wireless Earbuds are Bluetooth-only headphones that cannot be used wired.

6.5 Phone Calls

The TOZO T6 are okay for phone calls. They have an integrated microphone so you can easily take calls while on-the-go, but their microphone isn't ideal and your voice will sound thin and hollow. It'll also be very difficult for the person on the other end of the line to hear you in even moderately noisy environments.

Test Results

Style

The TOZO T6 are fairly standard looking truly wireless earbuds. They look almost identical to the TOZO T10 Truly Wireless, but have touch-sensitive controls instead of physical, clicky buttons. The earbuds are covered in a matte plastic, except for the touch-sensitive area which is glossy. While we bought the black model, they're also available in white or rose gold.

The TOZO T6 are decently comfortable. They come with six different sizes of tips to help you get a good, comfortable fit, which is great. While they fit similarly to the TOZO T10 Truly Wireless, they're slightly thinner and smaller in certain areas which makes them more comfortable in the ear. They also have touch-sensitive buttons, so you won't push them painfully into your ear when you press buttons, like with the T10.

The controls of the TOZO T6 are alright overall. They have touch-sensitive controls that are quite easy to use and follow a control scheme that makes logical sense. You can tap once on either earbud to play/pause, tap twice on your left or right earbud to skip tracks back or forwards, respectively, and hold the left or right earbuds to adjust volume down or up. You can also pull up your phone's voice assistant by pressing three times on either earbud. Their touch buttons don't offer as good feedback as clicky physical buttons, but you do get voice prompts or beeps to let you know when it's registered your commands, which is nice.

The case for the TOZO T6 is good. It feels slightly more premium than the case of the TOZO T10 Truly Wireless and is quite a bit smaller, closely resembling the case of the Apple AirPods. In addition to plugging in a USB cable to charge, you can also charge the case by simply dropping it onto any Qi-enabled wireless charging pad, which is a nice addition. There are four lights on the case itself to let you know how much battery you have left, and the case is rated IPX8 for waterproofing, though this isn't something we test for.

Build Quality

The build quality of these headphones feels good overall. They're made out of dense plastic and feel solid and able to withstand a few accidental drops or bumps. Both the earbuds and the case are rated IPX8 for waterproofing, though this isn't something we currently test for.

The TOZO T6 True Wireless Earbuds feel quite stable in the ear. Even without having stability fins, they should stay in place for basic workouts or light runs.

The TOZO T6 have a decently well-balanced and excited-sounding sound profile. They will add a bit of extra pop and kick to most genres, though their recessed mid-treble range means they may not be the best choice for fans of jazz or classical music.

The frequency response consistency of these headphones is excellent. Once you achieve a proper fit with the included tips, you should get the same audio delivery every time you use the headphones.

The TOZO T6's bass accuracy is quite decent. The entire range is almost entirely flat, and while it's slightly overemphasized, it isn't by too much, so bass shouldn't sound overpowering or boomy.

The TOZO T6 have excellent mid-range accuracy. The entire curve is almost entirely neutral, except for mid-mid which is slightly recessed. While this will push instruments and vocals slightly back in the mix, it likely won't be too noticeable to most people.

The treble accuracy of the TOZO T6 is mediocre. Low treble, responsible for the presence and detail of instruments and some vocals is slightly over-emphasized, though it shouldn't sound too harsh or painful. The dip in high low-treble and mid-treble will result in instruments like cymbals sound dull and lispy, which may bother fans of genres like jazz, classical, or pop. While the sharp peak immediately following the dip may cause some sounds to be sharp and piercing.

The peaks and dips performance of the TOZO T6 is decent. Their most noticeable dip is the large one in mid-treble. This will cause instruments like cymbals to be lacking in brightness and presence. While this may not be completely apparent to everyone or with all types of music, it'll likely make instruments in some genres like jazz or pop sound slightly dull.

The imaging performance of these headphones is excellent. Their weighted group delay graph shows that the entire response is well below the audibility threshold, ensuring tight bass and transparent treble. The left and right drivers of our unit were also well-matched in frequency, amplitude, and phase response, which is important for the accurate placement and localization of objects (voices, instruments, video game effects) in the stereo image. However, these results are only valid for our unit and yours may perform differently.

Like most in-ears, the soundstage performance of the TOZO T6 is terrible. This is because creating an out-of-head and speaker-like soundstage is largely dependent on activating the resonances of the pinna (outer ear) but in-ears are designed in a way that bypasses the pinna completely. They're also closed-back earbuds, so their soundstage won't feel as open as that of open-back earbuds like the Apple AirPods 2 Truly Wireless 2019, Google Pixel Buds Wireless, or the Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless.

The weighted harmonic distortion performance of the TOZO T6 is good. They tend to distort a bit more in the higher frequencies, which can be a bit more noticeable, but it's still within good limits, and most people likely won't have any issues even at louder volumes.

The TOZO T6 have great noise isolation. While they don't have an active noise cancellation (ANC) feature like some more expensive options, they passively block out background noises quite well, providing you achieve a proper fit with the included tips. They do an excellent job blocking out background chatter and the high-pitched noise of an AC unit. While they don't do the best job overall in the bass range, they block a fair amount in low-bass, where the low rumbles of bus or plane engines sit.

Compared to other headphones

Comparison picture

The TOZO T6 are a fairly standard pair of truly wireless headphones, though they do pack a few extra features that most in their price range don't. Their case can be charged wirelessly via any Qi-enabled charger, which is convenient, and they're rated IPX8 for waterproofing, though this isn't something we currently test for. They're very similar to the TOZO T10 Truly Wireless, but with a smaller case, more balanced sound profile, and better battery life. See our recommendations for the best cheap wireless earbuds, the best earbuds under $50, and the best cheap earbuds.
