Review: Sudio Wireless Earphones
Whether its for your commute, you gym session, or just blocking out the office din, a high quality pair is earphones is vital. Granted, some among us are more than happy with whatever random headphones were provided with their phone, but what about those who want a little more than just basic functionality? There is where the Sudio Vasa Bla Wireless Earphones come in.
Small, portable, well design and (most importantly) rose gold, these earphones are quite literally a thing of beauty. The moment I seen them I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pair! So when the Swedish firm offered to let me do this review, I jumped at the chance.
Sudio Vasa price when reviewed: $94.09
First thing’s first – the Sudio Vasa Bla Wireless Earphones are beautiful. Forget cheap looking plastic and cumbersome tangled wires, the Vasa Blå have a stylish, minimal design: matte black, rose gold, non-tangle cable – what more could a girl want?
On one side of the unit you find the microphone and remote allowing you to control the volume, pause your music, skip tracks and use Siri. On the other is the battery and charging port. Weighing only 14g in total, the unit is equally balanced making the earphones comfortable to wear and ensuring they won’t tug or fall out your ears. You also get numerous earbuds, a security clasp, and a leather case to keep everything safe in your bag or pocket. My only gripe is the earbud sizes available – only the smallest pair came close to fitting my ears. It would definitely help to make smaller buds available, especially if children were to want a pair.
Setup and Ease of Use
As easy as 1, 2, 3! (1) Make sure your phone’s bluetooth is off. (2) Hold the ear remote’s centre button down until you see red and blue blinking lights (about 7 seconds). (3) Switch on your phone’s Bluetooth and select “Sudio VASA BLA”. Job’s a good ‘un.
Well designed or otherwise, headphones are useless if their sound quality is poor. Thankfully, however, the Vasa Blå does not disappoint. You get clean, warm sound, a clear bass without too much boom and an equally strong, clear middle and top. And, importantly, this held true regardless of what music or video I threw at them. They do leak sound slightly, which is generally expected of any earbud that isn’t precision fitted. Thankfully, however, this was minimal compared to my Apple earpods and only really noticeable at high volumes. On that note, the fit and clarity meant I was listening at almost half the volume of my regular headphones! Goodbye ringing ears – finally.
Day to Day Use
I’ve been using the Vasa Blå for about a month now. During this I’ve been travelling on busy trains, bustling through crowds and making the occasional sprint when I was running late – so they’ve certainly had a good test run!
Firstly, the non-tangle cable is a sanity saver. And the leather case means no more yanking cables out of my bag as they wrap around everything. So practical!
In terms of battery, Sudio claim that you’ll get 8 hours of use or 10 days on standby. I tended to give mine a quick charge every other day and never had to deal with them running out of battery (although I was careful to switch them off when not in use). And, most importantly, I had no embarrassing disconnections on the train which left my music playing aloud to a carriage full of angry commuters, which is always a worry with any non-cabled tech.
Sudio Vasa Bla Wireless Earphones: The Conclusion
This one is short and sweet: go for it. If you want both form and function, you’re onto a good one here. These have instantly become my go day to day headphones. Light, well-designed, stylish, and not tying me to my phone? It’s a winner for me.
