Both Bowers & Wilkins PI7 and Tozo T10S have stereo speakers
Tozo T10S are rated 1meters any depth more than that they will be spoilt. Devices that have a higher depth rating are better for swimming.
ANC makes use of advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Bowers & Wilkins PI7 have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
Tozo T10S stay tightly in place, creating a sound seal that tones down background noise well as preventing the device music from leaking out .
Both Bowers & Wilkins PI7, and Tozo T10S have passive noise reduction which implies that they tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
The Tozo T10S have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, its size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
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 find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Tozo T10S's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, 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 make sound with a juicier bass than the Tozo T10S
The Tozo T10S's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates high human frequencies and if it 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
The Tozo T10S's battery life is 8 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Bowers & Wilkins PI7's battery life is less than that of Tozo T10S by 3.5 hours . Every 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 charge of 28 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging 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
It takes 2 hours to fully charge the Tozo T10S's battery. It is recommended to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
