Real Life Experience


Welcome to the Regancipher review of the Tranya T10. Tranya made big noise about upsetting the applecart with their beefy 12mm drivers dwarfing the typical 6mm drivers seen in TWS, and with the Qualcomm chip allowing low latency and charge case supporting Qi charging, the T10 are very impressive...on paper, at least.

The Unboxing - 7/10


Tranya have neatly packaged the T10 in a small, understated cardboard box with a cutout for the case and the tips and charge cable inside another small box that sits at the bottom. They've added a foam layer for protection in transit, and all in all, it's a nice unboxing that doesn't feel like it cost £29.99.

The Case - 8/10


Solid, if unremarkable. Larger than most TWS cases, it has a quality feel to it. With 4 lights indicating case charge, it has a practicality that many cases skip nowadays. The magnets snap in pretty solidly which makes chances of losing the buds during a transaction slim - a good thing unless you are trying to yank them out in the dark!

With few cases supporting Qi at this price point, this is a definite big plus point, especially for those short on space. The case, whilst larger than the average, iswell proportioned. It's not as portable as the tiny FIIL T1XS, or the similar-shaped Edifier TWS NB2, but it won't weigh your pocket down like the Wizzer E3. It also supports USB-C and quick charge.

You get 3 extra charges from the case, giving you a total playime of 24 hours - above average, and enough for most people..

Ergonomics - 6/10


The achilles heel. Tranya have angled the bud to maximise noise isolation and best accommodate the larger driver, which, rather than following the shape of my ears, jabs into them and sticks out quite a bit, since you can't insert them deeply into the ear canal.

This could suit some people, but it ruined a good set of buds for me as the plastic top of the bud pressed against the cartilage in my ear. The discomfort became apparent after about 30 minutes to unbearable after an hour - a real shame.

A recommendation would be to provide a rubber surround like FIIL. The rubber causes less pressure on the ear and thus negates the discomfort. Or modify the curvature of the design like the Alien Secret QCC010.

Regardless, it should still not be a reason not to try the T10 - everyone's ear shape is different, but they didn't fit mine well.

Passive Noise Isolation - 8/10

No active noise cancellation (apart from on the mics - see call quality) but passive NC is really good. Many earbuds have followed this design of late but Tranya were one of the first. The PNI is better than the ANC on many of the earbuds I've tested this summer, so hats off to Tranya here.

Audio - 7.5/10 price weighted, 6.5/10 Raw Score

Actually very good for the money and an improvement on previous Tranya models that suffer with notched top ends- these are much clearer at the top and the bottom. If you like bass these come into their own, and the frequency response in general is good for the money. Baritone voices are rich and well separated and blend quite well into the darker tones of RnB tracks - often a real challenge for lower quality earbuds.

Unfortunately like every Tranya model I've tested, female vocals can get a little lost on some tracks. On the T10, they are weaker on female vocals on dance tracks. Some tougher tracks that trouble most headphones are exposed with FLAC on Windows. St Etienne - Only Love Can Break Your Heart - is not going to blow your mind on these, as you would expect at this price point. That said, most genres are comfortable and easy to listen to.

Call Quality - Indoors: 8/10, Outdoors: 7/10

Call quality on the Tranya T10, considering they are all-rounders as opposed to stem-based conference call specific models, is excellent - indoors in particular is clear and crisp, and whilst outdoors as usual suffers a bit with traffic and other similar-frequency sounds, the cVc 8.0 is uncharacteristically very well implemented.

The mic array is as you would expect, with one ambient mic on the outside middle and one voice mic on the bottom. This is how an all rounder should be. It makes for decent quality all-round and it got good scores on all the tests.

Connectivity, Controls and Other Features - 8/10

Connectivity was very solid. Expected distances and no interference. A little latency, but no more than usual. I have seen some reviews claiming that connectivity is poor - this was not the case when I tested them, it was very strong indoors and didn't suffer in the pocket.

Qi wireless charging is a nice feature that will please many. There is no app support.

Controls are decent. I don't really like them at the best of times but the basics - volume control, answer calls and pause - work well. A beep signifies successful application of the action. Note - no voice assistant on these. No multipoint and no quick switch between devices.

BT Tweaker revealed the usual array of proprietary codecs and defaulted to Aptx on Windows and Android.

Battery Life - 7.5/10

Battery life didn't quite live up to what was advertised - but still very strong for its class. I got over 6 hours from a single play, which included calls. Very impressive at this price point.


Tranya don't release buds too often, and aren't an especially prominent name in the chifi space, nevertheless this isn't a bad attempt. The build quality is good enough. The sound quality, whilst not amazing, is good and improving with every iteration. Call quality is also impressive considering the form factor.

Whilst these are very decent for the money, the key metric for me is use-case, and with these that's where you run into problems. It is difficult to find a use case other than 'commuter'. They aren't really suited to conference calls due to comfort (although may work for some, this is entirely subjective) although have excellent mic quality, they aren't exercise headphones, they aren't audiophile headphones. I guess you could call them commuter headphones - useful for quick bursts, jack of all trades, master of none.

Tranya have come out with a new version, the T10b - shipped 2 months after I ordered it, and it sounds even better. It does have more bass, but the whole frequency range holds together much better than the original. A new favorite. :)

The 2 pair I ordered came in the original T10 box, but the sticker on the back of the box says "Tranya T10b"
