TOZO NC9 Earbud Style:

When unboxing the TOZO NC9 True Wireless Earbuds, one of the first things that stand out is the sleek and quality packaging, similar to Apple with a nice white box.

The earbuds look very interesting at first glance as they seem bigger than the TOZO T6 and have a bigger driver.

TOZO NC9 Earbud Build and Comfortability:

The earbuds are structured pretty solidly, with the exterior mostly of plastic, resulting in them being lightweight.

The earbuds also fit pretty snugly into the ears, which is a huge relief compared to other earbuds in the market, which seem to have a huge problem with staying in one’s ear.

One cool little thing that TOZO has done with this is that they have included up to 6 different ear-sized for further user ease and accessibility.

TOZO NC9 Sound Quality:

Regarding the sound quality, the TOZO NC9s have a good mid-bass, and consistent bass throughout a song. So consistent with the bid drivers, these earbuds have a premium deep bass with the mids, lows, and treble all great.

So, in terms of bass and deeper sound, you should go for these earbuds if you’re listening to a lot of hip-hop.

Does TOZO NC9 have active noise cancellation?

And the answer to this is, yes, it does. When you move on to the main features of these earbuds, there is no better place to start than the TOZO NC9 True Wireless Earbuds’ impressive Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation feature, which uses a 3-layer Noise reduction.

So, the way this feature works is that two microphones are used, both on the inside and the outside, while at the same time, the ear cups are also involved in passive noise reduction on their own. So, when it comes to the noise cancelling feature, the earbuds do a pretty decent job given the price, blocking out a wide range of noises, although higher pitch noises may still get through.

Definitely there is no match for the Sony or Sennheisers, but for its price point, the ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) feature of TOZO NC9 is pretty great.

TOZO NC9 Connectivity and Compatibility

The connectivity and compatibility aspect of these TOZO NC9 earbuds is quick and efficient. After taking them out of the charging box, the pairing process is pretty simple, with easy identifiers for both right and left earbuds.

You just have to turn on the Bluetooth on your phone and tap on your earbuds, and within a few seconds, your earbuds are paired to your phone.

TOZO NC9 Control Options

Regarding the controls, the left, and right earbud control many of the same things.

The only major difference between the left and the right is that in the right, you’re skipping forward, and in the left, you’re skipping backward, and if you’re holding the right or the left, you’re going to either decrease the volume with the left or increase the volume with the right.

Essentially, it becomes really easy to adjust volume this way. So, you also have your basic play and pause buttons, as well as skip and forwards/backward buttons at your reach.

Furthermore, you can also alternate between the transparency mode and the ANC mode by just pressing once on the left earbud.

Now the transparency mode on here is very nice as it does a good job of picking up sounds around you, allowing you to carry out conversations without having to take your earbuds off. So basically, you get a full feature of the apple air pods pro with these TOZO earbuds at fraction of the price.

Another great thing about these earbuds is that they are touch-enabled and have a nice flat surface, so they will easily register your touch every time. You’re not going to have to feel around to see where the area is located, which can sometimes become a hassle, especially if a person is exercising or running outdoors.

Moreover, people who prefer to walk around with just one earbud will be happy to know that you can use either the right or left as well.

TOZO NC9 Earbud Case Charging and Battery Life

Unfortunately, the TOZO NC9s don’t have wireless charging, so a cable is used to charge them. For this, the packaging box also comes with a 6-12 inches USBC charging cable, and this ample length when it comes to the cable can be really handy in a lot of situations. When it comes to battery life, the TOZO earbuds perform exceptionally well. The earbuds can be used for up to eight hours, while the charging case can also be used for up to 24 hours.

Considering the noise cancelling feature, such a hefty battery life will surely make many people happy!

With regards to the charging case, it’s pretty generic, with the USBC input being on the back, with four indicator lights on the front, which help the user gauge roughly how much battery life is left in the case

TOZO NC9 Earbud Water Resistance Rating

The TOZO NC9 earbuds are water resistant, have an IPX6 water resistant rating, and come with Nano-coating. However, there is the absence of an official IP rating. Therefore, one should be a little careful while handling these near water, and, although the coating will protect against sweat, rain, and little splashes of water, definitely do not submerge these underwater for sure!

NC9 vs NC7 vs NC2: which one is better?

After thoroughly reviewing these earbuds, it can be safely said that in terms of sound quality and comfortability, the NC9 is definitely better than the TOZO NC7 and TOZO NC2. In terms of bass and deeper sound, the quality of the NC9 is probably the best in TOZO’s range, and that’s saying something considering the budget range of these earbuds as well.

When it comes to the cons, there are really only two minor ones. The first would be the absence of a wireless charging case. It would have been much more convenient and attractive to many users who always use such earbuds. The second con would be, as mentioned above, the absence of an official IP rating, and that’s more just to feel a little bit safer while using the earbuds and not having to worry about water.

Why my TOZO NC9 earbuds won’t pair together?

If this occurs, then most probably either your earbuds are off, or they are not in pairing mode. Even if one of the earbuds is off or not in pairing mode, both earbuds won’t pair together. The simple solution is to reset your earbuds and pair them again.

Why are TOZO NC9 earbuds not charging?

The simplest answer to this would be that there might be an issue with either your adaptor that you’re using or your USBC cable. Check both of them by connecting with other devices and if the problem persists, try hard resetting your earbuds and leaving them in charging mode for a few hours.

How do you reset TOZO NC9 earbuds?

You have to take both of your earbuds out of the charging case and then hold the buttons of both earbuds until a red light flashes, indicating that the earbuds have turned off. Then you have to hold the touch panel on both earbuds till a blue light flashes, and then you just have to press the touch panel on both earbuds twice quickly and reset your earbuds.

How do you wear TOZO NC9 earbuds?

This one’s pretty simple. If, for any reason, your earbuds keep falling out or don’t fit your ear, what you can do is look into the packaging box and there switch the ear-tips with any one of the six pairs that come in the box. Choose whatever suits you best and try to wear the earbuds naturally in line with your ear shape and not force them too much.

Wrapping up

All in all, the TOZO NC9 True Wireless Earbuds are a great deal at their price. If you’re somebody who listens to different genres, these earbuds handle each one very well with tons of detail and a nice punchy low-end, resulting in just an excellent sound overall.
