Sudio Nivå – Affordable Truly Wireless Earphones + PROMO CODE

Ever since Apple had released their true-wireless earphones – Apple AirPods, several companies are rushing to release their version of true-wireless earphones. Sudio, a Sweden headphones company had also jumped onto the true-wireless earphones war with a rather neat, clean, minimalist design, which I really like!

Sudio Nivå comes in 3 different colors – Black, White, and Pastel Blue. This brand-new true wireless earphones feature Bluetooth 4.2 (with an estimated range of 10m) and can last for about 3.5 hours.

The round storage case is packed with a battery pack that has 4 charges to give your Sudio Nivå an extra usage of up to 17.5 hours. The storage case is nicely designed to fit into your jeans pocket. I really really love the minimalist design of the entire product!

Apart from the storage/charging case, the package comes with a micro-USB cable, extra silicon cases (in different size).

The sound quality for Nivå is good for the price tag of only S$169. The treble was alright, and surprisingly for its size, the bass of Nivå is not bad too! Overall, you still be able to enjoy your tunes in good immersive stereo. It is also quite useful to be used for exercise (e.g. running, cycling etc) but it doesn’t come with any water-resistant specification.

If you ask me, I would say that Sudio Nivå is a good-buy, with the affordable price tag, and above average sound quality.

Leasany – A Buddy That Helps With Your Travel

Recently my trip to the U.K. got better with the help of Leasany! What’s Leasany? It’s actually a Singapore start-up that aims to help Singaporeans by renting and selling essential-but-costly equipment for their travels. So in long, will help minimize the risk of owning and the cost of traveling. Furthermore, Leasany also has a blog section where you could find tons of travel blogs which will definitely assist you in your planning for your upcoming holidays.

A visit to their website will give you an idea of them being a ‘buddy’ for your travel, as you could rent and purchase items that are essential!

Under the ‘Rent’ section, you can find affordable items like Walkie-Talkies, Fujifilm Instax Mini Camera, Xiaomi Powerbank Charger, GoPro Action Camera, American Tourister Luggage, Unicorn Ring Float, DJI Osmo Mobile 2, Insta360 Camera and even DJI Spark Drone. Their rental charges range from S$1 to S$24 per day, and there’s promotion for longer rental periods.

As for ‘Shop’ section, the items you can find here include wet tissues, toothbrush travel kit, plasters, face masks etc. Which I think it would be useful for busy Singaporeans who have limited time to purchase and prepare these items prior to their travels. And… That’s where Leasany comes into the picture, to the rescue!

Upon deciding on the items you would like to rent from them, simply order it! There are 2 options – Delivery or Self-Collection & Return, I would recommend meeting them up for Self-Collection, as their friendly staffs will talk you thru your product before handing them to you. What’s more, you will be able to meet them at your preferred location to collect the rented items! Upon returning the item, the staffs will meet at your preferred location and deposit will be refunded to you directly via the same payment mode once we’ve acknowledged the returned item condition.

I had rented a GoPro Hero 6 with them, and I got to say that the entire process is so smooth and quick! From ordering the item, till meeting up with the staff, and returning them the item. I am really happy with their service and their product’s quality was really good.

Sudio Vasa Blå Earphones Review: Perfect Starter Bluetooth Earphones

So previously I’ve reviewed on Sudio TRE earphones which are not bad, especially for actives! And now, I’ve received Vasa Blå earphones from them to try it out! Really would take this opportunity to thank Sudio Sweden for constantly providing me with their awesome products!

For those who wanna find out how’s their TRE earphones are, click HERE. And just a recap for those who don’t know what’s Sudio. Sudio is a Sweden company that recently got more and more popular with its affordable, yet good quality earphones. Their products are very stylish too! So to the main review…

31400950_10214782423250073_8275296566479159296_n

Wireless is almost everywhere, and everything is going wireless. Vasa Blå is actually Sudio’s first attempt of a wireless in-ear bud earphones, and I personally think that it isn’t bad at all for a start! With the price tag of S$119 with free shipping, it’s so damn affordable and comes in 4 different colors – Gold Black, Rose Gold White, Pink, and Blue.

Sudio is now one of my favorite earphones brands now, and it won’t take long to know why! Upon receiving your package, you will be greeted by a beautiful white gift box with red bow and ribbons. So one point for packaging! Next, you will find your earphones, a beautiful leather pouch, USB cable for charging, instruction manuals and a few extra silicon ear tips (of different sizes).

Using the earphones is simple and direct, with 3 buttons remote on the wire, you can easily sync it with your smartphones and change the music you are listening to easily. It can support Bluetooth 4.1 with a range of 10m and it weighs 14g only! Battery life will be 9 hours of active usage and 10 hours of standby, which is longer than some smartphones! Charging time only takes 10 minutes for a quick charge, and 2 hours for a full charge.

In terms of sound, it uses 10.2mm dynamic speakers that produce clean treble sound and a certain level of bass. Even though its an in-ear bud earphones, it doesn’t exactly provides noise-cancellation, but when you use it in a quiet environment, the music it produces is just… beautiful.

So overall, I’m still quite impressed with Sudio Vasa Blå earphones, considering the affordable price and the sound quality it manages to produce, which is why I would encourage people around me to give them a try, and so should you! Oh and not forgetting, shipping time will only take 3-4 days by DHL Express delivery!

Sudio Vasa Blå earphone is wireless, but it still comes with a wire that connects both earphones, with a speaker and charging port. For those who want a truly-wireless earphone, I am delighted to tell you that Sudio has also recently released their brand-new earphones – NIVÅ. I hope I will be able to review it in the near future for you guys!

Finally, for you guys who wanna get one for yourself or people around you, simply head over to Sudio website HERE and make your purchase! Do remember to use my promo code <thehypetraveler> for a 15% OFF discount!
