TOZO HT2 Review

I am often very distracted in busy environments. A more positive way to put it is I am focused on too many things at once. In a busy room or place, my eyes will constantly be darting around, depending on what I hear or what is going on around me. Sometimes, I quite enjoy being able to focus on many things, which means I do not miss specifics or what is happening in a room in my line of work, but it makes it extremely hard to work well in a busy environment. Instead of working, I will constantly be looking around taking in what I hear or see. It is not too much of an issue with some of my responsibilities, since it can be low-focus work that is easy to do, but some of my activities require intense focus, and I cannot do it without it being quiet around me. I am sure many of us are like this, where a busy environment feels like mental clutter -- almost like working in a messy room does not provide the best place to focus. I was at a conference recently and had to get some stuff done. While I was there, everywhere was busy. I had the TOZO HT2 headphones with me, and it was an excellent opportunity to test out its active noise cancelling capabilities. Perhaps the TOZO HT2 can be helpful to my focus problems in busy environments. Read on to see how well it worked!

The TOZO HT2 was shipped from Mississauga, Ontario all the way to us here in Calgary, Alberta via Canada Post. The retail box was covered in bubble wrap without any other type of box keeping the contents safe. It was packaged quite well, but simply having the bubble wrap around the retail package could result in some damage to the product. Any impact could potentially damage the internals without a different box to contain the retail package. Thankfully, everything arrived in great condition for our review today.

The retail packaging is fairly straightforward. The box is mostly white, with the front mostly being taken up by an image of what the headphones look like. In the bottom left corner, we find the name of the product and its main selling features, such as it having active noise cancelling. On the back of the box, we find some more information in many different languages, which highlights the other selling features. The sides of the box indicate some other miscellaneous information, including other colors the headphones come in.

Before we move on, here are the specifications for the TOZO HT2:

After removing the outside packaging, we are met with a small white insert. Inside, we find all the manuals and other documentation. Below the insert, we find the headphones settled in soft foam. The foam keeps the headphones from moving around, preventing any accidental damage. In a small box off to the side, we find the rest of the contents in the form of two cables. One of them is a charging cable with USB Type-A to USB Type-C, and the other is a 3.5mm aux cable. The Type-C cable is for charging, while the aux cable can be plugged in for a direct line to whatever you are listening to. Overall, the packaging for the TOZO HT2 is excellent for keeping the headphones and other contents safe.
