Every little sound detail counts, especially if you love your music and movies a little too much; and because we know how much we dislike replaying a scene or track to get right, Sudio Nivå’s amazing sound system makes sure you don’t need to hit that rewind button, not often at least.

So Sudio sent us a pair of these babies to try out. After careful testing, here’s what we think about it.

Just In Case

The super stylish yet compact casing doubles as a charger. Just place the earphones back into the fully magnetic-operated case and it’s good to go get powered up. We had the option to go for a quick 10-minute charge during rush hour but a full one-hour charge is always recommended to prolong the battery’s life. That got us a good three to three and a half hours of playtime. Note that you should also leave it to charge for eight hours after unboxing.

Sounds Great

These wireless earphones deliver clear and crisp sound details, making it easy to identify every sound beat and bass. With each of us having different tastes in music (from ballads to Hip-hop and R&B), NIVA did not disappoint - the sound in every type of music is projected perfectly.

The earbuds, on the other hand, are designed to drown external noises, giving a nightclub-like experience. Surrounding sounds would completely be shut off and we would hear nothing but our own music. It also has a filter that smoothens out all sound beats without compromising any details, so you wouldn’t have to worry about sharp and piercing sounds which may cause discomfort.

It’s Not Going Anywhere

I went all out to test the stability of the ear sleeves. From jumping around during a HIIT class to hanging upside down on a pole while doing vigorous head flings - nothing could separate us. Yes, I was sweating profusely but that did not affect the relationship between my ears and the earphones.

The ear sleeves come in three sizes to better fit my ear canals comfortably. Made of high-grade materials, they stayed in without moving an inch, making my intense exercises a breeze. They’re so lightweight, it’s like as if they weren’t there.

Best Travelling Companion Yet

It’s a universal rule to have your headphones on when you are travelling. Nine out of ten times, we end up accidentally yanking on the wire and uncomfortably pulling the earphones, followed by dropping our bags, phones and papers. The best thing about the Sudio Nivå - no more making a hot mess out of ourselves.

One Click Is All It Takes

Taking calls and playing music can be done with just one click on either side of the earphones. You guessed right, there’s a built-in microphone and it’s surprisingly clear on the receiver’s end. Just note that you would need to hold the button down for two seconds to switch from phone to music mode - still perfect and convenient for those who are always out and about.
