Build quality

The build quality of the exterior meets the standard of the price range. The recent evolution of CCA's molding technology has been remarkable, and the design is more sophisticated than that of a low-end earphone.

Sound quality description

In this review, I use the standard eartips size L and drive it with the FiiO M15.

 

The CCA CA10 has a V-shaped sound signature that is designed to be neutral. There is an emphasis on the upper midrange, so the sound can easily sound a little hard and bright. It has a rather high construction, so you may get the impression that the midrange is clear, but it has what is called a "tinny" sound, where the piano sounds strangely congested, and the snare tends to sound too hard with too much attack and lacks elasticity. It has a V-shape, but the high frequencies are quiet, so it is less stimulating.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original Sound Fidelity: B
  • Recommendation: D-
  • Personal preference: D-

 

Some of you may have recently found that KZ's tuning has gotten so good that it's no longer interesting. If you are one of those people, I have good news for you! If you buy the CCA CA10, you can listen to KZ's usual out-of-tune tuning.

 

This is not a product that orthodox audiophiles and the general public should go near.

General comment

If you want to taste a weird, sort of psychedelic, freaky, junk food sound, CCA CA10 is not to be missed.

 

A brand with true talent doesn't think outside the box. From these earphones, I can hear the "sound field? Localization? Coherency? Tonality? Fuck it all!" Maybe it's because I've been tuning too much rationally lately, but I can feel KZ's pathos emanating from this CCA CA10 for the first time in a long time. I can feel the dark side of the Force in this sound.
