The Sudio T2 is a new pair of True Wireless Earbuds with active noise cancellation, the latest offering from the brand that combines the words “Swedish” and “Audio.” Does it live up to the “Made in Sweden” promise of exceptional sound quality?
The Sudio T2 has been designed from the ground up to deliver immersive sound with next-level comfort. It comes in an oval-shaped charging case with a strap, a much-appreciated touch. The case and earbuds come in a matte, soft-touch plastic that looks and feels plush. You flip up the magnetic lid to access the earbuds, which are snugly ensconced in their magnetic charging slots. The brand name is etched on the front of the case. At the back is the USB-C charging port with a tiny LED indicator below. On the bottom surface is a discreet reset button.
The earbuds themselves have been designed to offer perfect balance, fit, and comfort. The ear tips are newly shaped to prevent the earache that comes with wearing in-ears the whole day. Going beyond the usual S, M, L ear tip size options, there is an extra pair of XS ear tips to accommodate all ear shapes and sizes.
Four color options are offered — black, white, jade, and sand. It also comes with a color-coordinated charging cable.
The Sudio T2 touts its feedforward active noise-canceling technology, which works by analyzing ambient noise and generating anti-frequencies. The 8mm dynamic drivers on each earpiece are the centerpiece around which the earbuds were designed, to ensure that sound quality is not compromised. Each earphone also has a dual microphone setup with one mic pointing out to capture ambient sound and the other mic directed at your mouth to capture your voice. It then processes the sound waves and reduces ambient noise, so your voice comes across loud and clear.
User Experience: 4/5
Fresh out of the box, the Sudio T2 looks and feels like a top-tier device. To pair it with a device, all you need to do is take out one of the buds and pop it in your ear. It then tells you that it’s ready to pair with your chosen device. The pairing process is so quick and smooth I wasn’t quite sure it had actually connected the first time I set it up. No buttons to press, no waiting for the device to show up on your Bluetooth list.
Initially, I was disappointed that the Sudio T2 does not support simultaneous multi-device connections. I prefer multi-point Bluetooth headsets so I can pair them with my phone and laptop without having to connect/disconnect. While the Sudio T2 is unable to do this, its ability to quickly pair with my chosen device makes the process less onerous.
Through all the Zoom meetings over the past 18+ months, I have gone through quite a number of headsets — wired, wireless, over-ear, in-ear — none have been quite right, until the Sudio T2. I love how I can pop in one earbud or both, and actively participate, being able to hear the discussion clearly (depending on the audio quality of other attendees) while having the assurance that I am also coming across loud and clear. Its active noise cancellation feature is also a big help so I am not disturbed by the dogs barking, or the home stereo blaring.
When it’s time to clear my inbox, reply to email, or do some editing, the Sudio T2 does a great job delivering an immersive music-listening experience. Audio output is balanced with good left-right sound separation. The drivers deliver weighty but not overpowering bass, well-defined mids, and bright trebles. Even with the volume turned up really loud (not recommended), there is no crackling or hissing. Unlike other high-end headsets, the Sudio T2 does not come with an equalization app. Still, I’m happy with its overall sound quality.
Another important consideration: does it last the whole day? YES! You can get up to 7hrs 30mins of playtime on a single charge, less an hour if you have ANC on. With the charging case, you have enough power for up to 35hrs of use. And if you do run out of juice, a 10min charge gives you 2hrs playtime. It takes only an hour to fully charge the Sudio T2.
And YES! The fit is so comfortable you’d hardly notice that you have them in your ears — literally the whole day.
Carrying a PHP6,500 price tag, the Sudio T2 is not a budget audio device. There are many cheaper options price-wise, but I always say you get what you pay for, and I’d very happily part with my money for this pair. As a testament to its product quality, it comes with a 3-year warranty.
