Sudio - VASA BLÅ Wireless Earphones!

Posted on Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Though I am a bit of a tech noob, it's not that I didn't know that bluetooth earphones were an actual thing, but more like I didn't know they came so... pretty! Christopher from Sudio Sweden (@sudiosweden) sent me a pair of their premium earphones - the VASA BLÅ, which comes in 4 different colours: black, white, blue and pink; and true to Swedish design principles, they are super simple but super sleek.

The earphones come in 4 colours (black, white, pink and blue) and all come with Rose Gold accents, a shade I am crazy about. Especially now with the new iPhone 7 not having a headphone jack, these are all the more a great option if you're going wireless.

What do you get?
Inside the box I got the earphones themselves (of course), along with 4 pairs of interchangeable ear buds in different sizes which is great of because I have small ears (true story). There is a super useful genuine leather (yum) carry case - also with a rose gold button accent; the carrying clip (I don't really use this, but pretty); the charging cable; and the Owner's Manual + Quality Assurance Card. Needless to say, I may have had too much fun unboxing everything, haha.

Setting Up
Pairing my earphones with my iPhone seemed kind of daunting at first but it was amazingly easy - less than half a minute and I was done - no drivers or installations necessary. Here is a video on how to do it if you are still confused!

Sound Quality
Ok, I am not an earphone connoisseur and I am currently using this other cheap ass pair that I got from a goodie bag for free so I found these good and generally pleasing. Good high notes, great bass, but the mids do tend to get a little lost. Sound cancelling is good once you get the buds in the right size, and I'm not a fussy person when it comes to my earphones so I don't know what else a person could ask for!

The battery is meant to last 8 hours if you use the earphones actively, or 10 days on standby. I suppose it is only slightly inconvenient because I sometimes forget how many hours I have used it for and there is no monitor indicating the percentage of battery there is left :(

Shipping & Returns
Sudio Sweden has Free Shipping worldwide if you purchase from them online! Mine came within a matter of days via DHL (it varies where you are), and they have a 14-day no questions asked return policy if you are not happy with your product.

Final thoughts
If you're someone like me who isn't too snobby about music quality and feel that it is worth it to pay just a little more to have a piece of technology that reflects and ties in with your lifestyle, then this product is for you! While I don't run (because I am a lazy ass), I can imagine that these will be perfect to go jogging, or to pick calls on the move as it has a built in microphone as there is so much freedom of mobility with these.

Each set of VASA BLÅ earphones retails at USD165.00, but if you quote "LOVESUMMER" when checking out, you get ~30% off (15% from the code, and 20% for tax rebate for online purchases), bringing the total to... USD112.20 just for this summer + a free Sudio summer tote!

Anyway yep I just typed this whole post out while lying in bed, using my earphones with my laptop on my tummy and generally not helping this whole double chin thing because of the position I'm in, so write y'all later while I enjoy the rest of "Summer" here in Singapore!
