About the IEM
- Good enough fit, even for longer periods of time
- Small scope of delivery, only 3 different tip sizes (1 type) and a mediocre cable at best
- EST resp. MST-driver (magnetostatic) as unique selling proposition and innovation at this price-point
- Subbass virtually non-existent
- Pleasant, relaxed treble ➡️ attributable to EST/MST-driver?
- Unnatural timbre, sound feels somewhat artificial and robotic
- Lack of detail, especially on male vocals
- Overall relaxed, not very intrusive sound
- Relaxed sound
- Fit and comfort
- One (if not the) best sound KZ /CCA IEMs
- Relaxed sound
- Mids and Vocals
- Relaxed, pleasant sound
- Fit & comfort, even for longer periods
- Position and weight of vocals
- Pleasant treble
- Innovative driver configuration in this price segment
- Cable & packaging (although ok for this price)
- Details and resolution clearly too low
- Unnatural timbre
- Subbass almost non-existent
- Somewhat uncontrolled, blurred bass
- Inaccurate imaging
- Average soundstage
The CCA NRA isn’t necessarily a bad product. I’d just prefer a couple of other IEMs at the same price over the NRA. Blon’s BL03, KZ’s (CCA’s sister) own DQ6 or Moondrop’s SSP are all similarly priced but offer a more complete and mostly better sounding package.
The NRA might still be a nice experience for interested buyers, offering a somewhat unique driver configuration at such a low price. Especially the treble region really profits from the magnetostatic driver.
All in all, the NRA aren’t a must-have IEM for every collector like the BL03 might be, but they surely are worth a look if you’re looking for something (technically) different. The sound isn’t disappointing but also not overwhelmingly amazing.
