Today I’m reviewing the AWEI T10C Bluetooth Earphones. These earphones are completely wireless and feature an ergonomic design like high end audio brands.
Positive selling points include a splash proof outer case, touch sensitive user controls, and noise cancellation.
The AWEI T10C feature a Bluetooth V5.0 wireless connection that’ll work across any Bluetooth enabled device.
A rechargeable 300mAh battery case ensures a quick charge (1 hour) and the earphone will last around 2.5 hours.
But are they any good? What is the sound like? Time to test them out.
Packaging and Contents.
The AWEI T10C Bluetooth Earphones come packaged in a plain looking Brown cardboard box with no product images and has an underwhelming feel from on the onset. The box measures 11.0cm x 8.5cm x 3.5cm and weighs 100G.
Upon opening the box you’ll find the following; 1x Pouch, 1x Earphone Battery Case, 1x Pair of Earphones, 2x Additional Ear Tips, 1x Micro USB Charger Cable, 1x Chinese/English User Guide.
AWEI T10C Bluetooth Earphones.
The AWEI T10C Bluetooth Earphones are Black in colour and are made from plastic with Silicone ear tips. Each earphone measures 4.0cm in length and weighs 4G each.
To charge these earphones you need to align them into the battery box but remember to remove the film that’s covering the charging pins on each earphone.
Once the film is removed you need to put the earphones into the battery box, observing correct positioning of the left/right earphone.
Charging takes around an hour and you’re able to recharge the earphones several times until you need to recharge the battery box itself, this is done via a Micro USB port on the back of the box. Simply use the Micro USB cable (Which measures 32.0cm in length) and power it up using any 5V DC power source. To see the remaining battery level indicator of the battery box just put in the earphones and Green LED’s light up from 1 light to 4.
Pairing and Setting Up.
To pair the AWEI T10C Bluetooth Earphones you need to ensure your device is set up and ready to accept Bluetooth devices. Simply perform a search on your device and pair to the option ‘AWEI T10C’ both earphones will be paired to your device. Once this action has been completed each time you remove them from the battery case, they’ll automatically pair for you.
Once paired you’re all set and ready to listen to your music.
You might need to change the Silicone ear tips before you start listening to music, this is not only for comfort, but also helps reduce unwanted background noises too!
But this is where things get a little tricky. The AWEI T10C are a pain in the arse for changing ear tips. They’re so tight that putting on a new pair of tips means you need to stretch and slide the Silicone at the same time. I thought I’d managed to do this task (I’ve reviewed many earphones on this site) but the Left earphone fell out and left behind the tip in my ear canal. A little scary to be honest! I had to get it removed using a pair of tweezers as it had become wedged.
So be careful changing ear tips.
You get two additional pairs of tips, so should be able to find a comfortable fit.
Using the AWEI T10C.
The AWEI T10C Bluetooth Earphones are touch sensitive, meaning you can control track selection on the earphones themselves. But they’re over-sensitive and the lightest touch will cause you to pause/play your music library constantly without meaning too.
Each earphone features different options and to be honest, they’re over-complicated too, hard to understand and certainly hard to remember the process whilst in use.
So, I’ll give you an insight into each function below.
Touch once to pause/play music, touch once to answer a call (When incoming call), touch and hold for 2 seconds to reject a phone call, touch for 1 second to end a call.
Touch and press to increase/decrease volume, double tap to skip/go back on a music track.
I told you they’re over-complicated!
The AWEI T10C Bluetooth Earphones sound OK, nothing too special and nothing that’ll blow you away. The sound certainly feels more on the budget end of audio quality. Noise Cancellation is something that is advertised on the AWEI T10C Amazon product page, but to be honest most earphones can achieve this feature by simply replacing the ear tips.
Now the noise isolation is OK, you’re still able to hear unwanted background noises and this is something of a disappointment for me, I like to be fully immersed in my music, I don’t want to hear distracting background noises.
Upon increasing the volume to around 1/2 – 3/4 the earphones start to crackle.
Another big disappointment is the Bluetooth quality, having a Bluetooth V5.0 signal advertising a 10M range I was expecting a good quality signal, but they’re terrible. The realistic distance is round 5M before transmission starts to fail and fade in/out.
So, to summarise they sound is what you’d expect from a low end budget pair of earphones. Think pound shop and you can imagine the sound quality.
The handsfree calling feature is total crap too!

The AWEI T10C Bluetooth Earphones are utter crap. The sound is budget and the whole process of changing an ear tip is a complete pain in the arse. In fact, the phrase ‘Pain in the arse’ just about summarises my whole experience using these earphones. I normally enjoy reviewing audio products, but on this occasion this isn’t true.
I honestly cannot recommend these earphones. Also, if they’re faulty AWEI only give you a 15-day guarantee, so take that information as they’ll probably fail within the first month of purchase. Either they’ll fail on you, or you’ll smash them to pieces in frustration.
If you still wish to purchase the AWEI T10C Bluetooth Earphones for yourself (did you even read the review), they’re available only on Amazon. The RRP for these earphones are £32.89.
