i10, i10s and i10 Pro TWS Wireless Headphone Review

ByFields Corrielus 2019-08-28 3767

The idea to make an overview and instruction manual for i10 TWS wireless headphones arose after I saw a lot of positive feedback from their owners on Gearbest. TWS i10 literally blew up the entire Russian Internet as the best Bluetooth analogues of Apple AirPods. However, after checking AliExpress, I found out that there are several different modifications of headphones called i10. I don't take into account any i11, i12, i13, i14 and i19, which have a different manufacturer. However, they turned out to be so popular that there are even fakes directly on these copies of AirPods. Yes, as strange as it may sound, there are "original" TWS i10s that really sound great, and there are some low-quality fakes.

i10, i10s and i10 Pro TWS Airpods: Technical specifications

● Bluetooth version 5.0

● Distance - up to 10 meters

● Talk time is about 3-4 hours.

● Music playback - about 2-3 hours

● Waiting time up to 100 hours (i10, 10s) and up to 20 hours i10 Pro

● Charging time is 1-1.5 hours

i10, i10s and i10 Pro TWS Airpods: Appearance

Externally, the Bluetooth headphones TWS i10, i10s NEW and i10 PRO combine the fact that they all have the same size. It is as compact as AirPods' Air Plus 3,HOCO ES20,LK TE8 and M9X2. Another resemblance is that all the inserts are like two drops of water, similar to the original Apple and have a touchscreen control. However, the details are different.

These are the "most original" of the i10 TWS. They have proven themselves as cool wireless headphones, not inferior in quality to Apple Airpods. They don't have any buttons, unlike the original. And the neckline on the lid is not straight, but slightly rounded.

Also on the front side of the case there are 4 green light indicators, which show the battery charge level. A new USB-C connector is used to power the case.

There are no light bulbs inside under the cover, as well as on the i10 wireless headphones themselves.

They look like the Apple AirPods 2 design. The contact base is made as two semicircular connectors

i10s TWS (NEW)

TWS i10s Bluetooth headphones are called "NEW" by the Chinese themselves. That is, it is an updated version of the past. The upgrade is that they already support wireless charging - just like AirPods 2.

In addition, red and blue LEDs have appeared on the inserts themselves. They flash when they are waiting to connect to the phone after you remove them from the case. And they turn off right after the connector.

The outer shape of the headphones and the case are the same. Only the bulbs have changed their color to blue.


The PRO version attracted my attention by the fact that it is one and a half times more expensive than the others. And they have much less similarities with them, so the manufacturer is obviously different.

The case of the i10 PRO is more similar to Apple AirPods 2. Only it is a little more elongated than the original and other analogues.

And so - the same shapes of the cover cutout and there is a button. Only it is located not behind the original, but at the front, under the charge level indicators. By the way, you will have to press it every time when you want to put the headphones on charging. Let me remind you that the other TWS i10s start to power up as soon as you place them in their cases.

There are also 4 LEDs here. They are blue or green in a more advanced version with an apple recognition chip in your phone. But the wireless headphone connectors are no longer semicircular, but rather as point cutouts - just like cheaper fakes.

And the inserts themselves are larger in size and location of the cutouts for the speaker and microphone do not exactly repeat Apple. The Lightning cable used for charging is the same as the AirPods cable, not the USB Type-C.

As for the ability to control music playback, the functionality of PRO is wider than that of "just" i10 and "S" -ki. Here you can also adjust the volume of the sound using the sensor. A double tap on the right earpiece will increase it, and on the left one will decrease it.

There is also a newer version, which I mentioned above. It has a special W1 chip built into it, which automatically detects the headphones in the iPhone when you open the lid of the case.

And once connected, the screen will display the current state of the headphone batteries and case. Just like Apple AirPods. You can buy headphones for 30 bucks and surprise your friends at

This model can be distinguished by the green indicator on the case.

i10, i10s and i10 Pro TWS Airpods: Sound quality

The sound quality of i10 and i10s is the same. Apparently, changes were made only to support wireless charging and LEDs on the inserts. The audio chip remains the same - it's all the same cool headphones that sound evenly and accurately in the entire range. But PRO, which turned out to be from another manufacturer, clearly pumped up. I can't say exactly what the problem is, but the quality and purity is much lower than that of the competitors. Though they can give them a head start on volume reserve.

TWS i10, i10s and i10 pro: pros and cons

TWS i10 and i10s: pros

● That sounds great.

● Single mode capability

● Good build quality

● Charge level indication

● Automatic pairing

● Automatic charging when placed in a case

● Small size, one to one like Apple.

● Low cost

● Wireless charging support for i10s

TWS i10s and i10s: cons

● Case design is not exactly the same as AirPods

● USB-C cable

i10 Pro: pros

● Ability to work in mono mode

● Good build quality

● Charge level indication

● Automatic pairing

● The design of the case is very similar to that of Apple

● Support for wireless charging

● Lightning cable

● Auto-recognition and display of battery level in iPhone

i10 Pro: cons

● Higher cost

● Intermediate sound

● Case size is a little bigger

● Press the button again to recharge the battery after placing it in the case


How can we deduce from this? TWS i10s is a truly advanced version. The main thing is that they have added wireless charging support. The rest is basically the same. The sound is great and comparable to the original Apple AirPods.

The TWS i10 Pro stands a little apart. With the exterior resemblance of the case with the original, the disadvantages of using the case are much greater than the pros compared to a couple of others. So in this fight, they are a clear outsider. Their only advantage is the ability to control the volume of music. And for iPhone owners it will be convenient to use the Lightning connector, as it will be possible not to think about where to find an additional power cord for them.

The Type-C, which recharges their brothers, may not be suitable for everyone. Still, most inexpensive smartphones still use the good old micro-USB, and there are no problems finding an extra cord at all.

If you decide to buy new wireless headphones that look like Apple AirPods, it makes sense to take only TWS i10s. If you already have a previous one, there's no point in changing it to a new one.
