Langsdom A10
ø10mm Dynamic Driver

After the pretty good (but quiet) i8, this time I tried the more expensive A10. This one is a noticeable improvement over the i8: the bass quality and depth were drastically improved and the mids and highs are much clearer. The perfect loudness makes these earphones awesome even on low-powered sources.

Pros
Cons
  • A fantastic sound quality, especially the lows - deep and kicking with excellent sub-bass, and the highs - sharp and detailed.
  • Very nice build quality, with a rather unique and durable rectangular cable with proper strain reliefs.
  • The mids are slightly overwhelmed by the massive bass response.
  • The included accessories are quite useless - the case is thin and fragile, and the cable roller is a bad idea - don't ever roll your earphone's cable tightly.

Comfort & Fit

The housings are comfortable, but I had issues with the included tips - they are slippery, so I had to use ROCK Zircon's wide-bore tips, which fit perfectly.

Lows / Bass

Very punchy and deep with plenty of sub-bass to keep your attention. Not muddy and no noticeable distortions.

Mids / Vocals

The mids are relatively laid-back and slightly off-tone, dark-ish even. No too bad, but not dramatically good either.

Highs / Treble

The highs are loud and crisp. Just a step below being piercing or harsh. Detail level is about average. But really, it's a truly enjoyable sound, for the non-picky ones.
