The QCY T20 package meets the price standard.
There is no shortage of accessories. The package contains the following:
- QCY T20
- Charging case
- USB Type-C cable
The build quality of the QCY T20 meets the price standard.
The fit is good, but because of the inner-ear design, the sound can easily change with the fit.
I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with AAC.
I don't know, I haven't been in crowded places, but it is stable in my home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. When the sound was interrupted by an obstruction, the sound was momentarily interrupted, but it quickly returned and could then be heard consistently.
There may be a small amount of white noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

Sound quality description
QCY T20 is typically "low-frequency biased". However, it is possible to control the amount of low-frequency range in inner-ear models, since the amount of low-frequency range is easily affected by the wearing comfort.
The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with an AAC connection.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Sound quality general comment
- Original sound fidelity: D+
- Recommendation: C
- Personal preference: A+
These earphones are hard to recommend to anyone other than the most eccentric low-frequency fanatic who is looking for an inner-ear type earphone that lets him or her hear more bass.
Fortunately, the low frequency range is quite adjustable depending on the wearing comfort, so if it sounds too cushy, just loosen the earbuds a little and it will be fine.
There are surprisingly few inner-ear models that produce a solid low frequency range, so if you are looking for such a model, these may be a good candidate for purchase.
Sound quality features
- Deep low frequency range
- Sense of depth
- High live sound
- High groove feel
- Sense of envelopment
- Significantly lacking in high frequency extension
- Easily sounds caged
- Sound tends to change with wearing comfort
- Lacks in resolution
The QCY T20, as the brand describes it, is a typical "low frequency idiot" with powerful heavy bass, a sound that I don't think is suitable for everyone. Personally, though, I like it a lot.
