MOGCO M10
ø8mm + ø5mm Dynamic Drivers

MOGCO's latest M10 proved to be the most comfortable over-the-ear style earphones I ever had the chance to wear. Far more comfortable than the excellent but blocky KZ ZS5. Their shape is perfect for ergonomics. The sound, however, will mostly suit electronic music styles, rather than complex vocal-based or instrument-rich genres.

The mids are quite recessed, while the highs are slightly colored and have a somewhat harsh tone. The bass is punchy and deep, provides a very enjoyable experience for electronic dance music. The bass, however, appears to swallow higher frequencies, especially on low-powered sources.

Pros
Cons
  • Powerful and fun bass response.
  • Extremely comfortable to wear, literally takes a second to insert and seal.
  • A robust build quality and design.
  • The mids are relatively recessed and are overpowered by the bass.
  • The highs are slightly harsh (in tone, not loudness).
  • Even though it's not audible, the channel matching isn't great, especially at high frequencies.

Comfort & Fit

Probably the first over-the-ear style earphones that I found extremely comfortable and very easy to get a seal with. I didn't have to struggle with them for a few minutes to get a perfect fit, like I usually have to do with other earphones of such design. Even while moving or pulling on the cable, the earphones never budged from their position. Very impressive!

Lows / Bass

Not exactly deep, but there is a noticable emphasis on the mid-bass. On neutral and bright sources, the bass sounds powerful and lively, and complements the mids quite impressively.

On bassy and weak sources, the mid-bass can result in overly bloated bass and muddiness of the sound. The lows seem to leak into the mids quite significantly and there's a consistent low-frequency "hum" sound wherever there is bass content.

Mids / Vocals

Honestly, the mids aren't that bad, especially if EDM is your thing. They are, however, somewhat muddy, bloated with mid-bass, especially when used on low-powered sources. Thus, for acoustic music, rock, metal, etc. these earphones are a big no-no.

Highs / Treble

The highs are OK. Slightly artificial in tone, somewhat harsh, but not exaggerated and thus not fatiguing. Level of detail is about average, no micro-detail whatsoever.
