Sudio Ett Wireless Active Ear Buds

Sudio’s listening devices have always fit right into my lifestyle and, for that, I have worked with them for years to review their earphones and ear buds. Aesthetics is definitely the first draw for the new Sudio Ett but in this season, I appreciate good quality earphones. It’s a pity that influencers are positioning this earphone as a lifestyle product because, I feel that Sudio has really come up with a pair of earbuds that is not just good looking.

SOUND BALANCE

For years, I start my Sudio reviews with Design, because that must be their most attractive selling point, but this time, I’m starting with sound quality because I’m quite happy with it.

I’ve always indicated that the treble in Sudio earbuds is too high. Music sounds floaty, somewhat sharp out of their earlier earphones or earbuds, but sound from the Sudio Ett finally has sufficient weight and the overall sound balance is quite good.

ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION

Sudio has always provided a very good range of silicon ear tips in matching color. They already do a pretty good job at passive noise cancellation I must say and holy, the Sudio Ett comes with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).

It took me a while because I didn’t read the manual but to activate ANC, you just need to hold the button on the earbuds for 2 seconds and you will be notified with an announcement that goes “Noise Cancelling” when ANC is activated. I can’t hear the background at all when ANC is activated.

VOLUME

Some readers informed me that Sudio’s earbuds at its max volume is still soft when connected to their phones. Volume was good for me when I was using a Google Pixel Phone, but when I switched to a Samsung Note 10+, I finally got what they meant.

That is why, I am very pleased with the Sudio Ett. There are no such issues, volume range is absolutely sufficient even for the deafest of us all.

COMPATIBILITY WITH OTHER APPS

The Sudio Ett has dual-microphones, with transparency mode activated during phone calls for enhanced sound quality. Sounds good, but I wanted to know what it really means in use, so I tried it out using the most popular apps in Singapore now.

Whatsapp Call

I hardly call people to talk, but for this review I asked my friend to test out the connectivity / voice clarity over a Whatsapp call. I’m not particularly loud when speaking but he said he was going to go deaf at the 100% mark, the most comfortable being around 50-70% volume.

Zoom / Microsoft Teams / Skype Call

My colleagues confirmed my connection is crisp and clear with no nasty background sounds. Connection can be wonky when I share my desktop for presentations during calls, but I’m not sure if its because of the earbuds or the application, or my laptop.

全名 Party

If you are unaware, 全名 Party is a KTV app that is extremely popular now, especially now that none of us can go out to sing.

I find it most comfortable if I didn’t have to hold a wired earphone mic and be restricted in movement by the wires. Although I have encountered instances where others in the KTV room can only hear my singing and not the music, the Sudio Ett works if I log out and log back in again, some times for a few times. However, it is unfortunately not the most ideal for singing because there is always latency present when you use all bluetooth earphones for singing on an app. 

Siri & Google Assistant 

I use google assistant when I am driving to switch locations sometimes, or even for directions to go home. All I do is say “hey google, go home” and the map is turned on. The convenience.

CONTROLS

The Sudio Ett has multi-function buttons for controls. You can’t adjust volume via the earbuds themselves, so you will have to do so on your device, but you can do the following on the earbuds.

2-second single press : Toggle ANC on/off, Reject Calls
Quick single press : Play / Pause Music, Answer / End Calls
Double Press : Play next Song
Triple Press : Play previous Song

CONNECTIVITY

Like all Sudio products, it is very easy to connect the Sudio Ett. But unlike other Sudio products, the Sudio Ett connects automatically to my devices when I lift them out of the cradle. There is no longer a need to press and hold. To connect, simply:

  • Turn on bluetooth device
  • Take Sudio Ett out of cradle
  • Select Sudio Ett to connect

WATER PROTECTION

IP rating is the marking that describes the level of protection against particles or fluids provided by the enclosure of your earbuds. The Sudio Ett has a rating of IPX5, which means it can survive small water jets. Perfect for jogging, even in the rain.

COLORS

Sudio makes the most beautiful earbuds hands down. This time the Sudio Ett comes in four colors: Black, White, Green and Pink, all in muted finish.

The earbuds have a classy, muted finish and comes with a stem which ends in a single line of chrome finish at the end. 

I struggled to choose between the green and the pink earbuds. Muted green is my weakness, it is so special. I would have gone with it but eventually, I found it a tad too masculine. Pink won me over because this particular shade is there but subtle and incredibly attractive. 

DESIGN

My hands are small but I don’t like earbuds so tiny, that they’re hard to find and a trouble to use. The Sudio Ett is small, but not inconveniently so. It is light in weight but not unsubstantial and I find it comfortable to wear for long periods of time. 

I am so glad that the carrying case is no longer a big round thing. The cradle or carrying case is a minimalistic box with clean lines that is moulded to do exactly what it needs to, without superfluous designs or features. It is very attractive to me. The Sudio Ett fits into all my tiny bags. If we could still go out, I’d bring them out daily so that I won’t feel the anxiety of running out of battery on my ear buds.

PLAY TIME, BATTERY LIFE & CHARGING

Playtime: 6 hours without ANC, 4 hours with ANC
Total battery life: 30 hours, 4 extra charges with the carrying case
Wireless charging & quick-charge with USB-C (15 mins for 1 hour play time)

I appreciate that the USB-C charging point for Sudio Ett is located at a place that enables you to charge it upright but I appreciate even more that the Sudio Ett can be charged wirelessly. I appreciate it most that quick charge is available on the Sudio Ett. All my charging dreams come true.

  • a charging / carrying case in matching color

  • a USB charging cable in matching color

  17. Now that we’re stuck at home, most social connections have moved online. I’m meeting my colleagues online to discuss projects, as well as meeting friends online in the evenings to chat and to play games. When my parents and siblings are all doing the same exact thing in the same house, sounds overlap, and it can be quite hard to hear people speak over the laptop, and it’s also a distraction and disturbance for my family to hear the game sounds and the crazy shit laughters my friends have. The Sudio Ett Wireless Active Ear Buds with its Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) function seems like the perfect solution to that 🙌🙌🙌, AND being wireless, it allow me to walk around the house abit while listening in on the discussion so that I don’t have to be stuck to the laptop all day 💯💯💯 Cheers to clear and immersive sounds, and no more exchanges of “huh”s over digital screens 🤖🤖🤖

    1. Emoticon game strong 💪 Good luck!

    One great feature about Sudio Ett is it’s IPX5 splash proof, rain proof and sweat proof. That being said, i do not have to worry that the earbuds will be soaked in my sweat when working out in the gym or running in the rain.
