IP ratings is the rating of protection offered by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance 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..
Compared to the Tozo T10S, Sony LinkBuds S have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Sony LinkBuds S has a lower liquid rating than Tozo T10S
The Tozo T10S have a weight of 10g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to transport.
Sony LinkBuds S, at 9.6g are lighter than the Tozo T10S by -0.4g
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, Tozo T10S are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a major difference as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the 2 earbuds .
Sony LinkBuds S also is true wireless since it doesn't have wires connecting the pair of earbuds together.
Tozo T10S have sweat resistance
Sony LinkBuds S's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
Tozo T10S have stereo speakers, what this means is that Tozo T10S's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Sony LinkBuds S 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 can withstand more water pressure are better for diving.
ANC uses more advanced technology to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
The Sony LinkBuds S have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
The Tozo T10S stay tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that reduces your environment noise well as preventing the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that both limit ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
Tozo T10S driver unit is 8mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the device.
Sony LinkBuds S driver unit is 5mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Tozo T10S by 3mm , as many tend to believe 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 indicate that they deliver 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 audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Sony LinkBuds S's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that both devices can make sound with equal bass
Tozo T10S's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio device generates high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
Sony LinkBuds S's highest frequency is at 40000Hz, this means that Sony LinkBuds S can generate a clearer and crispier treble than the Tozo T10S
Sony LinkBuds S have neodymium magnets, if used in audio devices produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, using high magnetic flux.
Tozo T10S's battery life is 8 hours, a device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chanrgings.
Sony LinkBuds S's battery life is less than that of Tozo T10S by 2 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and Tozo T10S's case is said to have a full charge of 28 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge the case itself.
Sony LinkBuds S's charging case has a battery life of 14 hours, less than that of Tozo T10S by 14 hours
It requires 2 hours to fully charge the Tozo T10S's battery. It is highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for extended periods.
Sony LinkBuds S takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the Tozo T10S
Tozo T10S have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the earbuds has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging state of your device and charging case.
Sony LinkBuds S too have a battery level indicator, these enable you determine the charging state of your device, whether fully charged, or the battery is running low.
The Tozo T10S use USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
Sony LinkBuds S too use 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 allows data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Sony LinkBuds S has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, equal to that of the Tozo T10S . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Tozo T10S have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Sony LinkBuds S have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Tozo T10S
Tozo T10S support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Tozo T10S will work well with your MacBook. If you are planning on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Sony LinkBuds S support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
Sony LinkBuds S support LDAC, a codec developed by Sony which allows streaming high-resolution audio over Bluetooth connections at up to 990 kbps at 32 bit/96 kHz. It is capable of a very high bitrate of 990kbps, providing high-resolution audio.
