Sudio NIVA, true wireless earphones from Sudio Sweden
Did you ever have a messy moment when you accidentally tripped or got caught up in the messy wired earphones when you were enjoying your music from your smartphones? I knew I had quite a few of those moments which usually caused nasty drops of my iPhones. Well since we have now evolved into a more and more wireless environment, our earphones now too are able to be truly wireless too. Take a look at the Sudio NIVA, a true wireless earphone from Sudio Sweden. This elegant pair of wireless earphones is so easy to use, it is now my go-to earphones whenever I want to put on my favourite Spotify playlists.
Packaging & Design of Sudio NIVA
Sudio NIVA came in a minimalist square box, inside the box it holds the Sudio NIVA wireless earbuds and charging case, a micro-USB charging cable, a user manual and extra eartips for different sizes (altogether a total of 3 pairs of eartips for large, medium and small sizes).
The charging case is compact and light, shaped like a face powder case with a leather string for easy holding or clipping it to anything that you like. On the charging case body itself, it has the blue coloured LEDs on the front that signifies the case’s battery level, a micro USB port at the back.
How to use the Sudio Niva
To power on both earbuds, just hold the buttons on the earphones for 3 seconds until the blue light flashes. Then, select Sudio NIVA in the Bluetooth list on the phone/device.
Once the Sudio NIVA is paired with your phone, you can press the button on either of the earbuds once to play or pause music, and double-pressing skips to the next track. I wish that there were an option to rewind a song as well.
You can use just the right side of the earbuds for phone control (as it has a built-in microphone), whereby you can answer a phone call by pressing the button once or switch back to the phone by pressing and holding the button for 2 seconds.
As to powering off the earphones, just simply put the earbuds back in the charging case, or hold the buttons on one or both sides for 6 seconds.
Sound Quality & Battery Life
I love the sound from my Sudio NIVA. The bass is strong and when I turn the volume up I can’t hear any of the noise from the outside world. The vocals, mid and high sounds are pretty decent too in my opinion, but generally I’m not that picky when it comes to earphones, so long the sound is great with a good kick of bass.
When fully charged, Sudio NIVA can last up to 3.5 hours of play time, while the charging case can hold 4 times of full charge on the go. Also, you can quick charge in 10 minutes while fully charged in one hour.
Since I’m travelling a lot on the road, Sudio NIVA is the perfect lightweight companion that I could easily carry in my bag whenever I go.
How to Purchase a Sudio NIVA?
For RM425/US$109, Sudio NIVA comes in White, Black, Blue and Pink colours to choose from. I thought the price is very attractive being a true wireless earphone. To make it even more attractive, Sudio Sweden is giving a 15% discount code when you purchase with my discount code: ALLISON2018 at www.sudio.com/my. After the 15% discount, Sudio NIVA will only cost RM361.25/US$92.65 which is even more attractive. Mind you Apple AirPods is now selling at RM649/US$159 (originally at RM800). Furthermore, Sudio Sweden is having an exclusive promotion now that they give FREE Pack of 4 Swedish Design Coasters and FREE Delivery to Malaysia and many other selected countries.
