Thoughts: on Sudio Vasa Blå and LoveSummer Promotion

Sudio is founded in Sweden, and it represent elegant products with studio quality sound and exquisite quality, offering trendy, wireless earphones for those who are constantly on-the-go.

*****

The Sudio team offered me a pair to try.  What came in the mail:


– a neat Sudio gift box and canvas Summer Tote Bag (minus the sunglasses, personal item)

And what was in neat gift box:


– a pair of gorgeous Vasa Blå in Rose Gold Black, a Rose Gold clip, Leather Pouch for the earphones, 4 pairs of changeable sleeves for comfort fit, Guarantee Certificate certifying authenticity, Owner’s Manual and USB cable for charging.

*****

After 2 weeks with the earphones, here’s my take on it:

Design: A coated finishing on ear piece, flat band cable, slightly big battery unit (left), remote + on/off button (right) and a quality leather pouch to keep them in. Stylish as an accessory, pairing it with outfit or for daily use and suitable for sports too, easy cleaning due to its rubber material. It too, feels somewhat timeless, in black.

Pairing / Ease of use: Quick, effortless on my iPhone 6 and Sony Xperia Z3 compact. Hold the ‘play/pause’ button for 5 sec (you’ll see blinking lights, to indicate it’s on and ready for pairing), switch Bluetooth ‘on’ on your mobile devices and select ‘Sudio VASA BLA’ to connect.

Sound (music): Excellent with vocal based, acoustic or instrumental music. Bass, decent but probably not enough for head-banging rock music lovers. I was pleasantly surprised by the clear vocals and instruments / background music while listening to Foo Fighters, Mayday, Thelma Aoyama and Ayakara Hirahara on Apple Music.

Sound (calls): Decent, works well as a wireless mic for calls.

Charging: Charging is via USB point, under a rubber flap on the battery unit. The quick charging will take about 10 mins and a full charge will take around 2 hours.

Battery: Stands true to its 8 – 10 hour battery life. I tend to leave it on overnight but reflected close 1/2 or 3/4 batt in the morning.

Weight: 14 grams (slightly leaning to the left, perhaps due to battery unit). Unnoticeable weight, if you were to leave it by your shoulders / necks the whole day. That’s what I do when it’s not charging.

Things I notice: There may be slight fuzzing during music play if you toggled often between apps but it will only last for a couple of sec.

Conclusion: Well designed, well made and quality sound. I love it 🙂

News: Logitech K780 Multi-Device One Keyboard for Any Devices

Logitech announced its Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard, the first fully-equipped computer keyboard with a 10-key pad that also works with smartphones and tablets. With the touch of an Easy-SwitchTM button, you can easily switch between any three connected devices.

Kinda like the K480 but more, with a full keyboard (including number pads!)

The K780 Multi-Device offers quiet and responsive typing. The keys are large and carefully scooped for typing comfort and precision, while a convenient 10-key pad makes it easy to enter numbers. An integrated rubber slot with a soft finish securely cradles a variety of mobile devices at a perfect reading angle, from smartphones to the 12” iPad ProTM. The keyboard is slim and solidly built, designed to look good in a modern home or office environment.

The K780 Multi-Device adapts to your devices, so whether you are using a Windows PC or iPhone, the key layout is familiar and you can even access your favorite shortcuts. With both a Logitech Unifying™ USB and Bluetooth Smart technology, you can choose the best way to connect to your computer, phone or tablet.

With a power-saving idle mode and an on/off switch, the K780 Multi-Device offers up to 24-months of battery life – plenty of time to get used to a new way of multi-tasking, by typing on all your devices with a single keyboard.

The Logitech K780 Multi-Device Keyboard is now available at a retail price of S$129.00.

Image and product press release as shared by Logitech Singapore.

I can imagine myself sticking my phones and iPad on it, like those busy professionals doing big deals. That actually made me giggle, cos I’ll most likely ‘look busy / busier’ than intended.

A nice idea and sleek looking product, for those with multiple devices and still light enough to bring it out (875gram).
