After trying out the Sennheiser True Wireless Momentum, JBL Live 300TWS, Apple Airpods Pro, Jabra Elite 75T, B&O Beoplay E8 and Sony WF-1000XM3, I have a clear and distinct image in my head regarding what really good wireless Bluetooth headphones should cost. Today that image has been deleted. Swedish Supra has destroyed it, completely. The fact that Nero-TX can be bought today for £90 must in every conceivable way be described as pure madness. You will never find a better priced headphone in your life.
In terms of design, Supra goes for something a bit smoother and simpler than most competitors. The charging box is of the simpler kind, the headphones are unassumingly anonymous in terms of shape and colour and it does not immediately feel "premium" when you unpack them, which should not be the case considering the price. The headphones also have to be Bluetooth-synced in a certain order, which feels a bit old-fashioned compared to how competiting devices work.
None of this is a problem, though. No downsides, but still things I wanted to point out. In fact, I'm having a lot of trouble trying to come up with some real minuses here. The fit is superb and the headphones are light, small and fit very well in all ears. It comes with three different types of rubber cups (large, medium, small) and I have, among other things, exercised with Nero-TX in my ears a number of times and experienced that they have a comfier fit than both the Sennheiser True Wireless Momentum and the JBL Live 300TWS.
The charging box is also tiny and clad in the same matte rubbery surface as the in-ears themselves. Sound-wise, for me, all I can do is surrender completely, here. Nero-TX sounds fabulously good. Better than any other Bluetooth wireless headphone I've ever listened to, even those that cost up to four times as much. Supra delivers a warm sound image and it fits (as you probably know) me very well. This is without compromising on control in the midrange and it has a very fast and tight, clear and dynamic treble.
The stereo separation is brilliant, too. The resolution is superb and there is a lot of sense of space here, which is not possible to say about, for example, the Audio Technica ATH-CKR7TW or the Apple Airpods Pro. The battery life is also phenomenal. I have gotten six hours out of the headphones themselves and 14 charges (!) From the tiny little charging box. It is not an industry leader but also not very far away from being just that.
Supra has previously been criticised for lack of durability and given that these are sold at budget price and manufactured in China I had my reservations, but after handling my Nero-TX relatively carelessly over the past month and not noticing any problems, I would also like call them sustainably functional and extremely reliable.
The headset-quality is not great, I will admit that. But for £90 you cannot get perfection anywhere, we all get that. There is not much more to say than that the all-Swedish Supra shocked the sound world with what I consider to be an absolute must-buy. The price must of course be included and then there is simply nothing that can measure up to this complete package.
