CCA C10 – Review

CCA C10

| 4x Balanced Armature | 10mm Dynamic Driver |



🎧 We are reviewing the CCA C10, an insanely affordable 5-driver hybrid earphone.

The CCA C10 must be the cheapest-priced penta-driver earphone on the market right now, dethroning (pricewise) some of the most affordable 5-drivers headphones so far, like the:

The CCA C10 features 10 drivers (5 per side) with 4 balanced armatures and 1 dynamic driver with a diameter of 10mm.

The CCA C10 drivers configuration is the exact same as the KZ ZS10 with a 10mm dynamic driver, 2×30095 balanced armature and 2x 50060 balanced armature.

CCA is a brand that has appeared only a couple of months ago with their first model, the CCA C04 an hybrid dual driver earphone. The CCA C10 is their 2nd release positioned as their mid-tier model right below their flagship CCA C16 (16 drivers).

The CCA C10 looks pretty much like a KZ ZSN or KZ ZST PRO but with a different back plate, made of metal – we can even risk to say that the main housing is exactly the same as the aforementioned.

The cable of the CCA C10 is detachable with bi-pin 0.75mm connectors like all KZ earphones with detachable cables.

The cable design, looks and construction is identical to every latest model from KZ but the connector ends of the CCA C10 offers a better build with metal materials instead of plastics and colored rings on each end to easily recognize each side.

If you want to get the most ridiculously affordable 16 driver earphone on the market do not miss out our exclusive coupon for the bigger brother of the CCA C10, the CCA C16 coupon available further ahead in this same review.

Bass & Sub Bass

The CCA C10 sub-bass gets seriously deep and mid-bass punches strong and firmly.

This is clearly an energetic sounding earphone that will fulfill any listener requisites with high demands for intense bass.

As with most bass-intense earphones, you should expect a sound signature with strong inclination towards the lower frequencies and some out of control mid-bass.

On the other hand, users in search for vivacious mid-bass and sub-bass will be happy with the CCA C10’s tuning.

Applying an EQ, their lower frequencies get a hugely deeper sub-bass and noticeably punchier response.

Mids & Vocals

The CCA C10 mids have alive male vocals which are not distant but might show congestion along with lower mids due to some mid-bass that extends over the lower end of their midrange but mostly to their highs tuning (read later on the Highs & Treble section)

Higher mids are very crisp and clear but can get harsh too when spikes are present on some tracks.

Expect super warm mids with full sound and some congestion.

With a basic EQ knowledge, some of their mid-bass bleed can be sedated but male vocals might start to sound akward, also higher mids can easily turn harsh so do not dial them up.

A deep and customized EQ can make the CCA C10 shine and reveal it’s true potential but it will not be an easy task for most users.

Highs & Treble

The CCA C10 highs are fairly bright and resolve some detail, still, there is some “sound stacking” that makes them feel narrow sounding.

Despite their slightly bright tuning they present, at the same time, a dark tint over them due to a rolled off response on the upper end.

Piercing peaks will show up but sibilance might be less pronounced on some songs – yet, both of them will be present on fatiguing-prone tracks.

The CCA C10 obtains a great benefit from an EQ regarding their soundstage with also additional brightness and detail.

Sound Leak

The sound leaking out of the CCA C10 is a tiny bit lower than most earphones – not a day and night difference but a slight margin to crank up the volume a bit more before they become too hearable by nearby people.

Sound Isolation

The sound isolation provided by the CCA C10 is strong and efficient at any volume setting.

Users wanting a stronger than average isolation might be happy with this earphone.

Comfort

The housings of the CCA C10 is practically the same as the KZ ZSN and KZ ZST, this makes them also inherit the same comfortable fit that both KZ models showed in our past reviews.

The earpieces are neither too big nor too small, adapting to most ears without significant issues.

Response to Equalization

The CCA CA10 are significantly responsive to custom equalization.

If things get accurately done, the CCA C10 will respond with a much brighter and cleaner overall sound.
