Both Bowers & Wilkins PI7 and Tozo T10S have stereo speakers
Tozo T10S are rated 1meters any depth more than that you are likely to lose the functionality of your device. Devices that have a higher depth rating are better for swimming.
Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) giving 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The Tozo T10S sit tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that tones down your environment sounds and also prevents the device music from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that both tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
Tozo T10S have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the loudness of the earbuds.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7 driver unit is 9.2mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Tozo T10S by 1.2mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The Tozo T10S's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component generates low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, this means that Bowers & Wilkins PI7 can make sound with a juicier bass than the Tozo T10S
Tozo T10S's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component makes high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
Tozo T10S's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's battery life is less than that of Tozo T10S by 3.5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
This is given by the vendor, and the Tozo T10S's case has a full charge of 28 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's charging case has a battery life of 18 hours, less than that of Tozo T10S by 10 hours
