Never heard of Tozo? Thousands of Amazon shoppers are beyond impressed — and they rave about the company’s earbuds with almost 30,000 glowing five-star reviews.

Here's one from a shopper who bought the A1s for his niece: “They stay in her ears and produce excellent sound quality and a great price! … These are durable and high-quality. The touch features work great, she loves that she can control the volume and pause what she's listening to/watching without having to touch her tablet; this makes it easy to mount the tablet on the headrest so she doesn't have to hold it on long car rides.... These are great earbuds, especially for a first pair, because if the kids lose them or break them, they are not expensive to replace.”

In fact, one of the shoppers who gave the A1s a five-star review was so impressed that he bought his wife the slightly more expensive T6 earbuds: “She loves that she's no longer tethered to the laptop.… The earbuds are really comfortable and stay in place extremely well for her!… She used them to listen to music yesterday while out in the yard and says the sound quality is the best that she's ever heard. These give great all-around sound and have great bass, especially if you set your sources’ EQ properly! The touch controls are excellent!… The battery life is incredibly long — she uses these all day for work calls, only charging them for 30 minutes during lunch. The case she charges once every three days.”

Even better, he notes, is how durable they are: “She dropped one in her cereal while taking it out of the charging case. We turned it off, washed it with soap and water and wiped it dry, turned it back on, and it still works like new! These are very water-resistant!”

This customer says the “bass is punchy and resonant, high end is very clear and crisp. The mids may be scooped a little, but it's not bad.” He adds that they “sound way better than any normal wired earbuds I've owned, and not having a wire tying you to the phone is really nice when you're trying to listen to something and cook or do other tasks.”

"Virtually indestructible," raved a reviewer who put the T12 to the test. "I have been a liker of Tozo for a couple of years now.... After today's incident I will never buy anything else. I was at work and listening to music close coworker dropped [the earbuds] into the oil fryer. Our oil fryer is at 350°F, by the way. They immediately panicked and drained the fryer... Believe it or not, but [the earbuds] played perfectly fine... Tozo T12 is apparently 350°F fryer oil-proof!"
