These wireless earbuds from TOZO use the latest and most advanced Bluetooth 5.0 protocol for connection, offering true stereo sound and fast and stable transmission, all without getting tangled in a cord. Music lovers will be over the moon about the hi-fi stereo quality sound. These earbuds were engineered to offer an authentic sound and impressive bass performance with an 8mm speaker driver. The earbuds also happen to be fully IPX8 waterproof – and the same is true of the included charging case, too. In fact, the nano-coating makes it more than possible for them to withstand an estimated one meter of water for up to 30 minutes – all while lasting more than four hours on a single battery charge.
