After more than a month of interspersing and using all kinds of running/sports headphones of all kinds, this time I bring you the review of the JVC HA-A10T (yes, the name can be improved). These headphones belong to the “ Truly Wireless ” segment that has grown so much in recent years. What does this mean? They are independent, each unit (left and right) is wireless and therefore we forget about cables and obtain maximum freedom of movement.
The headphones are presented in a very simple box with the typical: the HA-A10T themselves, their case (and charging box), a micro USB cable to charge said case, and an assorted pack of pads of different sizes and materials (now we come to this ).
JVC HA-A10T review: 4 hours of battery life per charge
Starting with the box, it is essential in this type of headphones, because with it we charge the headphones themselves. In this case, the case of the JVC HA-A10T is made of plastic, light (about 40 grams), although its shape is bulky. It does not have any buttons (they are on the headphones themselves), on the back we have the micro USB connector and on the front, a good detail: 4 LEDs indicate the remaining battery of the case.
That battery is 10 hours. In other words, we have a total of 14 hours of autonomy if we add those 10 hours of the case to the approximately 4 hours that the headphones last on a single charge.
He commented that the case, despite being light, has bulky dimensions for example to carry it in tights or sports pants. Personally, what I do is not take the case with me during workouts, because we really don’t need it (the case doesn’t have Bluetooth or connect to anything, everything falls on the headphones). So, at home, I put on my headphones and go for a run, or at the gym, I just leave the case in the locker and that’s it.
JVC HA-A10T Headphones Controls and Adjustment
The JVC HA-A10T Bluetooth headphones are of the in-ear type, therefore they are inserted into the auditory pavilion and create certain isolation from the outside. In addition, this also improves the fit and prevents them from moving or falling during the sport we practice.Here comes into play, as I always say, the choice of pads. Typically three different sizes of classic silicone ear tips are included, but JVC also adds two sizes of foam ear tips.
This is not usually anything common, but the foam pads (or memory foam ) have a higher level of adjustment because before inserting them into the ear we flatten them with our fingers and when we insert them they expand and adapt their shape to our pavilion.
Bluetooth connection and sweat resistance
The connection process of the JVC A10T is not complicated, basically it is like any Bluetooth headset. Once we take them out of the box, the pairing begins and from the Bluetooth Settings menu of the mobile (or the device we use), we select and that’s it. From that moment on, every time we take them out of the box they will connect, and if we put them back in the case they will disconnect and start charging. The typical.
You can control playback by pressing the physical buttons on each earbud:
- 1 tap on any of them: Play/Pause
- 2 touches : we raise or lower a volume point, depending on whether it is the right or the left.
- 1 long touch (press for 1 second) goes to the next song (if the right one is pressed) or to the previous one (if the left one is pressed).
If they call us while we have the headphones on, with a touch on any of the buttons we can answer the call (they have a built-in microphone) and with another touch we hang up. And finally, pressing 3 times quickly on the left one activates the voice assistant on the smartphone (for example, Siri on iOS/iPhone).

JVC HA-A10T review
After these weeks, the experience with the JVC HA-A10T sports headphones has been very satisfactory. The fit is good , I have run with them, outdoors and on a treadmill, I have used them on the bike while I did roller at home, I have used them to catch up on podcasts during the day (outside the sports field, I mean ), in the gym, leaving my mobile phone on a bench and moving freely around the machines without connection problems (as long as the 10-15 meters without obstacles are respected)…
Also, as I said at the beginning, they are 100% resistant to sweat so we should not worry in that regard. They are IPX5 certified , which is equivalent to resistance to pressurized water jets, so no problem with sweat or if it rains in the middle of training, but they are not submersible (and if they were, it would be of little use because Bluetooth technology is useless you’re welcome under water).
