I reviewed the excellent Sudio Vasa BLÅ back in 2016. At the time they offered a designer look, premium build quality for a reasonable price tag of £69.
Sudio have now followed this model up with the Tre, which are priced at £79 but you can get them with 15% off if you use the promo code mightygadget taking the price down to £67.15. The official blurb from the site states:
The Tre sound signature is well-balanced with each tone represented clearly for an even listening experience. Tre offers full sound transparency, meaning the user can still hear their surroundings without having to remove the earphones. You won't be caught off guard by unexpected street noise and conversation, even while listening to your favourite tunes.
As with the Vasa, the Tre headphones come in a premium looking package, you get a little metal clip, a leather carry pouch, a credit card style warranty card and even the manual feels fancy. Overall the packaging and accessories are far superior to far more expensive headphones such as the Bose Soundsport.
They maintain a similar design to the Vasa pair I reviewed. The main cable is a flat rubber material with two plastics boxes sitting slightly below each ear. On the right-hand side, this box has the controls and microUSB port, while the left-hand side has no apparent function, so I will assume that is where the battery is housed.
The Vasa headphones used a traditional style earbud then was inserted inside your ear canal, the Tre headphone differ by using a flatter earpiece that then has a protruding funnel where that sits inside your ear (my pictures provide a better explanation). It also has a hook which anchors the earpiece into place. This design feels less intrusive than inserting a standard earbud style one into your ear, and will no doubt be preferable to some.
Pair the headphones up is as simple as any other Bluetooth device, you get a few beeping noises to indicate the status, and away you go.
