Ingress protection ratings is the level of protection given by a casing, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX8, the Tozo T10S's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they are protected against the effects of continuous immersion in water, ingress of water in quantities causing harmful effects shall not be possible. Conditions should be more severe than for numeral 7..
In comparison to the Tozo T10S, JBL Live Free 2 have a rating of IPX5 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Tozo T10S has a higher liquid rating than JBL Live Free 2
The Tozo T10S have a weight of 10g . We take in account a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to move with.
JBL Live Free 2, at 9.8g weigh less than the Tozo T10S by -0.2g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no wires linking any part of the device together, Tozo T10S are true wireless for this matter since they don't have cables. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds .
JBL Live Free 2 also is true wireless because it doesn't have wires linking the pair of earbuds together.
Tozo T10S are resistant to sweat
JBL Live Free 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
Tozo T10S have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JBL Live Free 2 and Tozo T10S have stereo speakers
Tozo T10S are rated 1meters any depth more than that they will be spoilt. Devices that can withstand more water pressure are better for swimming.
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero hence "diluting" the noise.
JBL Live Free 2 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
The Tozo T10S sit well in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces your environment noise while preventing the earbuds voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that they tone down ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
Tozo T10S have a unit size of 8mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
JBL Live Free 2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Tozo T10S by 3mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
Tozo T10S's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Free 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal bass
Tozo T10S's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Free 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Live Free 2's measurement is 102dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The 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 given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
JBL Live Free 2's battery life is less than that of Tozo T10S by 1 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case 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 allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge the case itself.
JBL Live Free 2's charging case has a battery life of 28 hours, equal to that of the Tozo T10S
It requires 2 hours to fully charge the Tozo T10S's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Tozo T10S have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the earbuds has a low battery. The battery indicator lights display the charging state of your device and charging case.
JBL Live Free 2 too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators allow you determine the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or the battery is running low.

JBL Live Free 2 too support USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug is part and parcel of most current electronics.
The Tozo T10S have Bluetooth version of 5.2, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
JBL Live Free 2 has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, equal to that of the Tozo T10S . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Tozo T10S have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
JBL Live Free 2 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Tozo T10S
Tozo T10S support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Tozo T10S will work well with your iPad. If you intend on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Tozo T10S have 2 microphones.
The JBL Live Free 2 microphones are 6, more than that of Tozo T10S by 4 . More microphones result in better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out background sounds.
JBL Live Free 2 have a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are made to filter out background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
JBL Live Free 2 support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient sound to still be heard even while wearing the earbuds
