Sudio has released their latest product – Sudio Regent Wireless Headphones. We managed to get hold of a unit for review. Instead of writing about how we feel about the product, we’ve decided to do something different this time and get a female blogger (poisonvine.com) to share with us her experience after using this product.
Q1. Have you heard of Sudio? What’s your first impression when you first got hold of the Sudio Regent?
I first got to know about Sudio until they launched the Sudio Vasa Blå. It left a very strong impression on me because the earphones looked stunning!
Sudio Regent exemplifies the Sudio’s design philosophy – minimalist, elegant and timeless. It’s definitely a beautiful headphone that you would want to show off to your friends.
Q2. Which genre do you usually listen to? And does the sound profile meet your expectations?
I listen to a rather wide variety of genres so it’s a bit difficult to say. For instrumentals, I prefer artists like Kenny G, Keiko Matsui, Kaori Kobayashi and Jessy J. For vocals, I like Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Il Divo, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige and Toni Braxton.
Anyway, I find that the Sudio Regent generally performs well for instrumentals, there is good clarity and balance. Unfortunately, the bass is a little weaker than I would like. For vocals, I find that the sound quality tends to be a bit airy.
Q3. What’s the best (or worst) experience you had while using this product?
I like that the Sudio Regent offers both Bluetooth and wired option, which makes it very versatile and is ideal for travelling. The headphone is light and foldable, making it very portable. In addition, you can change the caps on the headphone and match the headphones to your OOTD.
The headphones sits on the ear and is generally quite comfortable. However, after prolonged usage, the headphone will start to feel a bit too tight for my head (maybe because I have a big head?) But for commuting I would not expect to wear this continuously for over an hour so it’s not a big issue.
Q4. Considering all factors: Design, features, sound quality and price, how do you rate the product?
I would give it a 6.5/10. It is definitely worthy of a consideration if you are in the market for portable headphones.
The Sudio Regent is available in two colors, black and white and retails for S$229.
If you are in Singapore, you will get a 20% off that price because of tax rebates. After the 20%, it becomes S$183.20.
Using my promo code “neodimension” at their site, it will give you an additional 15% discount. So in total, you pay just S$155.72 for the Sudio Regent.
On top of that, you will receive a free express shipping and a phone case.
