[Tech] Sudio VASA Earphone Review

When it comes to choosing a good pair of earphone, I'm kind of a picky person. I always request for earphones with clear tunes with a natural bass which can really bring out the instruments, harmonizers and beats of each song. I guess it's all because that I'm a dance person who loves to listen to the bass of a song, cause each beat does inspire me to do certain movement, and that's how I normally choreograph my dance moves!

So recently I've been trying out a pair of earphones that a lot of bloggers and friends have been sharing about due to its elegant look and great quality sound - the Sudio VASA Earphone.


Sudio stands for elegant products with studio quality sound and exquisite quality. The Sudio VASA has been named after King Gustaf Vasa, who lead the Swedish War of Liberation against King Christian II of Denmark during the 16th century.

VASA is one of Sudio's premium models, to which a new generation 10.2 mm driver has been developed. This new driver was said to be by far the best driver from Sudio and with this, everyone are now able to hear every detail, in every instrument, in every song, giving a unique unforgettable sound experience, just as if you were inside the recording studio.

Well, how does this awesome thing work so well and, is it really that good? Just keep reading and we'll see.

Owner's Manual & Quality Assurance Card that looks prestigious.

Overview of Sudio VASA


It's an in-ear earphone, and the flat cable doesn't make the earphone tangled easily.

As I said that I love to listen to the bass of the music well, so I always go for the in-ear type of earphone because the sound will be transferred directly into my ears. The comfortable soft earbuds makes me feel even more enjoyable to listen to my favourite musics.

This earphone has a gold polished ring which gives it a very premium feel. 

In case you don't really understand that how does the 10.2mm driver makes this earphone special, the driver is wider so that it's able to deliver a wider range of frequency response to your ears compared to normal earphones. This is why Sudio promises that you will be able to hear every instrument in your favourite songs, just as if you were inside the recording studio.

Here's a simple example for those who still can't understand the science behind it. A narrow space can only transfer the basic 3 colours - Red, Yellow and Blue, but a wider space are wide enough to fit 7 colours - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple, instead of just 3 colours. I hope this doesn't sound confusing.

The 'L' and 'R' signs to differentiate the sides.

The earbuds fits comfortably into my ears.

Sudio VASA has a full-feature of control module with 3 buttons and a built-in mic for Android and iOS.

Love this feature very much cause I can easily skip songs or answer phone calls when I'm busy.

It has right angle audio jack, good when using your phone horizontally, like watching videos, where you won't bend the cable and lead to damage.

My Thoughts


In terms of the sound quality,
  • The bass is well pronounced, not punchy but leaning abit more towards full.
  • The mids are slightly above average. When playing bass-heavy songs, the vocalist is abit overpowered by the bass, but when playing acoustics songs, instruments can be heard clearly and are quite detailed.
  • The highs lean towards being a little pitchy at times, nevertheless it handles most pop songs well.
  • The earbuds are comfortable and the seal provide a notable amount of noise cancellation giving a more immersive sound experience.

All-in-all, it's a well build in-ear earphone. With a balanced sound of the bass, mids and highs with notable slight edge with the bass. With features like the control module with mic, flat cable, right angled jack and a premium look, it make a perfect outdoor go-to earphone for people aiming for a somewhat well balanced sounding that looks good.
