I recently received the Sudio Vasa Bla from the good people of Sudio, Sweden, and I would like to thank them for letting me have the opportunity to review the Vasa Bla. I’ve tested out the Vasa Bla over the past 2 weeks and if you’re looking at purchasing a wireless earpiece, read on for my experience!

Sudio Vasa Bla

What is it in a nutshell?

It is a wireless in-ear model with 8+ hour battery life, rose gold detailing, and studio quality sound. 

Sound Signature

The Vasa Blå sound signature is delivered by a carefully tuned driver and amplifier. The combination of driver and amplifier is able to separate the sound of every instrument in every song, thereby giving the listener a true studio experience.

Handmade

Making earphones is an art of craftsmanship. While machines continue to revolutionize the modern world, we feel that humans still conquer machines. This is why Sudio has chosen to continue with handmade details for the majority of the production process.

Receiving the Vasa Bla!

So I received the earphones via DHL which took just 3 days to arrive, thats like the same speed as local mail! On top of that, their shipping is FREE OF CHARGE with tracking.

I chose the white Vasa Bla but there is also black, pink or blue, all with rose gold details.

For those of you that are OCD, fear-not the Vasa Bla! Everything is consistently rose gold.

Operating & setting up the Vasa Bla:

First thing to do is to charge it: Sudio provides the charging cable in the package, but any android charging cable will do too. A quick charge takes just 10mins and a full charge takes 2hrs.

  • To turn it on: hold the middle button (pause/play button) for 3s till the blue light comes on.
  • To set up the bluetooth connection to your phone: just hold the middle button (pause/play button) for 7secs till the light becomes red, and then go to your Bluetooth settings in your phone, turn Bluetooth on, and click connect to Vasa bla.
  • To turn off: Hold the middle button (pause/play button) for 3s, or it turns off automatically after 10secs when it is not paired.

 

My Thoughts:

I like how Sudio thought through every single detail from including a leather pouch, a metal clip, and even to different sized sleeves. This makes it a hassle free purchase because it comes with everything you’ll need for a wireless earphone.

The Vasa Bla itself is a good length, just enough for it to look sleek behind my neck. And the short wire means no tangles! I’ve had so many instances fearing that my non-wireless earphones will break when i tried to untangle them.

Also sometimes I feel like I’m tied to my the charging port when I have my earphones on because my earphones are connected to my phone and my phone is connected to the charger. It has deterred me from moving freely around my desk at many times. Now, i can move around my desk freely thanks to the Vasa Bla.

I can imagine that it would be great for use on a flight as your phone can be stowed away  in your bag under the seat, or kept in the seat pocket, while you listen to music.

PROS:

  1. It does not tangle !
  2. Lightweight at 14gm only
  3. Easy to carry / keep away as the cable is short.
  4. Excellent sound quality
  5. Hand made details instead of machine made
  6. Aesthetically pleasing design that would even go really well even office wear.
  7. Everything you’ll need for the Vasa Bla is included in the package; even a sleek leather case and different sized sleeves.

CONS:

  1. The connection range is stated as 10m but for me it was around 5m when the sound got distorted.

Overall:

The Sudio Vasa Bla will be perfect for you if you want an aesthetically pleasing wireless earphone with excellent sound quality. The feel good factor of these earphones are certainly 100%! I absolutely love them and they have become my daily earphones now.
