The PLEXTONE G10 are a direct competitor to the popular Razer Hammerhead Pro (V1). Although the bass is as powerful as the successful PLEXTONE X41M, the G10 fall short when it comes to the sound clarity and precision. Nevertheless, these are extremely good earphones for the price they ask for it, and were favored by most people who bought them.
The G10 are quite similar to PLEXTONE X53M in terms of sound quality.
Boomy and powerful sound, perfect for electronic music.
Extra-long cable for maximum gaming comfort.
The remote has support for both legacy and modern mobile phones.
Great package contents, and you even get a free earphones/microphone splitter cable for use on your PC, which is a rare gift, especially for the overall low price of these earphones.
The splitter and the remote are the same thing here, which means the mic is too far from your mouth, which is weird since these are supposed to be intended for gaming.

Comfort & Fit
About what you would expect from a pair of ordinarily-shaped earphones. However, if you take into account that you get legit memory foam tips with them makes these earphones very much comfortable!
Lows / Bass
These earphones were designed with a boomy bass in mind. The bass is so powerful and overwhelming that you barely care about the mids and highs, especially if you're listening to electronic music. These earphones are just plain fun to listen to, if kicks and bassline are your thing. About the same bass response as the X41M. For those looking for a balanced bass response - these won't do.
Mids / Vocals
Although the mids and vocals aren't the most detailed I've heard so far, even not as clear as X41M, they are still quite excellent in most cases, especially for pop and dance/electronic music. Obviously not precise, but are very fun to listen to.
Highs / Treble
The highs are not highly detailed, and slightly darkish, but at least they aren't harsh or piercing. They are quite comfortable to listen to, but those who are looking for more impressive detail should look elsewhere.
