Unlike the Soundcore Liberty 4 with stem-based design, the Soundcore Sleep A10 earbuds have compact profile.

Combined with the adaptive noise masking function, the headphones can block up to 35 decibels of noise level according to Anker.

In terms of audio output, the in-ear headphones use a dynamic sound driver instead of a magnetic type. This makes it suitable for white noise and sleep-inducing sounds because of the low frequency output. There's also a Smart Switch feature that automatically switches to white noise when the earbuds detect that you fall asleep.
Besides managing sleep data, users can access free libraries or stream sleep audio tracks from the Soundcore mobile app. Additionally, the sleep earbuds work as an in-ear alarm clock that can be set from the app. Connection to other sources is also available through the Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. Supported audio codecs are limited with SBC and AAC.
Battery life and pricing of Soundcore Sleep A10
Soundcore's Sleep A10 headphones get up to 10 hours of battery in sleep mode and much lower when playing music. The charging case itself adds an extra 40 hours of playback for a total of 50 hours. Unfortunately, wireless charging is not supported. But you get a USB-C port that can fully refill the case's juice within 2 hours.
The new Soundcore Sleep A10 sleep earbuds are listed for $180, which are considerably more expensive than the Soundcore Space A40 or Liberty 4 at $100 and $150, respectively.
