The Tranya T10 earbuds are straightforward truly wireless in-ears that come with a portable charging case. They're compact and stable in your ear, making them well-suited to wear to the gym. They have an excited, V-shaped sound profile that adds an extra boom and punch to keep you motivated during your workout. Unfortunately, they don't really block out bass-heavy sounds like bus or plane engines, and they don't have a lot of customization options. That said, if you're looking for a simple pair of headphones in the budget range, they're a solid choice.

Our Verdict

6.7 Mixed Usage

The Tranya T10 earbuds are alright for mixed usage. Their portable, stable design makes them suitable to wear during your workouts. They have a nine-hour continuous battery life, and their portable charging case makes it easy to bring them on-the-go. While they can isolate against voices and other sharp sounds, they struggle to block out the sound of bus or plane engines, so they may not be the best choice for commuting and traveling. Also, their excited sound profile isn't ideal for neutral sound.

Pros
  • Portable design.
  • IPX7 rating for waterproofing.
  • 9-hour continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Not comfortable for all users.
  • Don't really isolate against bass-heavy sounds.
5.8 Neutral Sound

The Tranya T10 earbuds are middling for neutral sound. They have an excited, V-shaped sound profile with a boomy, punchy bass that may be overwhelming for some listeners. Their mid-range is quite balanced, however, so vocals and lead instruments are still clear and preset in the mix. There are also two different EQ presets available: 'Normal' and 'Bass Boost'. The 'Bass Boost' is the default sound profile, but it performs pretty similarly to the 'Normal' preset.

Pros
  • Two EQ presets available.
Cons
  • Closed-off soundstage.
  • Boomy, muddy bass.
7.4 Commute/Travel

The Tranya T10 earbuds are decent for commuting and traveling. They're very portable, with long continuous battery life and a hard charging case for when you're on the go. However, they struggle to isolate against bass-heavy sounds like bus and plane engines. They're decently comfortable, but some listeners may not like their in-ear fit.

Pros
  • Portable design.
  • 9-hour continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Not comfortable for all users.
  • Don't really isolate against bass-heavy sounds.
8.0 Sports/Fitness

The Tranya T10 earbuds are great for sports and fitness. Like most truly wireless in-ears, they're very compact and portable. They also have a stable in-ear fit, so they shouldn't fall out of your ears during your workout. They even have an IPX7 rating for waterproofing, though we don't test for this. Unfortunately, they sit a little deep in your ear, which may not be comfortable for all users.

Pros
  • Portable design.
  • IPX7 rating for waterproofing.
Cons
  • Not comfortable for all users.
6.5 Office

The Tranya T10 earbuds are fair for office use. They don't leak a lot of noise, so you can crank up the volume on your favorite tunes without annoying your coworkers. They can also block out background noises typically found in an office setting, like your coworkers' voices. Their nine-hour continuous battery life can easily get you through your workday, and their charging case offers around three extra charges for longer days at the office. These headphones are pretty comfortable, too, but their in-ear fit isn't ideal for all listeners.

Pros
  • 9-hour continuous battery life.
Cons
  • Not comfortable for all users.
4.9 Wireless Gaming

The Tranya T10 earbuds are compatible with Bluetooth-enabled PCs, but their latency is too high for wireless gaming. They aren't compatible with the PS4 or the Xbox One.

4.7 Wired Gaming

The Tranya T10 earbuds are truly wireless headphones that can't be used with a wired connection, so they aren't suitable for wired gaming.

6.1 Phone Calls

The Tranya T10 earbuds are acceptable for phone calls. Their integrated microphone transmits your voice clearly, though it sounds a bit thin. It also struggles to separate your voice from background noises, so it's best-suited for making calls in a quiet environment. Also, while these headphones can block out background chatter, they struggle to isolate against bass-heavy noises, which may be distracting if you're trying to focus on a call.

Pros
  • Mic transmits voices clearly.
Cons
  • Don't really isolate against bass-heavy sounds.
  • 6.7 Mixed Usage
  • 5.8 Neutral Sound

The Tranya T10 are fairly standard-looking truly wireless earbuds. They're made of matte black plastic, and they protrude a bit from the ear like the Anker Soundcore Life Dot 2 Truly Wireless.

These headphones are decently comfortable. They're lightweight, and they don't put too much pressure on the ears. Thanks to their touch-sensitive controls, you don't have to push them further into your ear to register commands. However, they sit deep in your ears and they're a bit bulky, so they may not be comfortable for everyone.

These headphones have okay controls. Both buds are touch-sensitive, and you can adjust the volume, skip tracks, and change the EQ setting by tapping either earbud. You can also power the buds on/off and pair them by holding down on either bud. While there's a lot of feedback, including voice prompts and beeps, the control scheme isn't the most intuitive and it may take you some time to get used to it.

Build Quality

The Tranya T10 earbuds have a good build quality. They're mostly made of plastic, which seems solid and durable. They're also rated IPX7 for waterproofing, but we don't test for this. On the downside, the silicone ear tips are a potential weak link, as they seem like they could tear.

Stability

These headphones are pretty stable. They should stay in your ears during moderately intense workouts. Unfortunately, they don't have stability fins.

These headphones have poor bass accuracy. While the entire range is quite flat and balanced, it's also overemphasized, resulting in a thumpy, punchy sound. Fans of bass-heavy genres like EDM may appreciate the extra boom, but other listeners may find it overwhelming.

The Tranya T10 have good mid accuracy. There's a slight overemphasis in the low-mid, which can add a muddy quality to the mix, while the balanced mid-mids makes vocals and lead instruments clear and present. The overemphasis in the high-mid can make those same frequencies a bit honky and harsh.

The Tranya T10 have fair peaks and dips performance. The peak in the high bass adds extra boominess. The dip in the mid-mids pushes vocals and lead instruments towards the back of the mix, while the peaks in the high-mid and low-treble can make those same instruments harsh and painful. The dip in the mid-treble makes sibilants like cymbals dull and lispy.

The Tranya T10 have a fantastic imaging performance. Weighted group delay falls below the audibility threshold, resulting in a tight bass and transparent treble. The L/R drivers of our unit are well-matched in amplitude, frequency, and phase response. As a result, objects like voices and instruments are accurately localized within the stereo image. However, these results are only valid for our test unit, so your experience may vary.

The Tranya T10 have a terrible passive soundstage, which is typical for in-ear headphones. By design, they don't interact with the outer ear, which is one of the key factors in creating an immersive, speaker-like soundstage. Sound is perceived as coming from inside your head, rather than all around you.
