I have been a big fan of Edifier speakers for a few years now. Previous speakers, soundbars and earphones/headphones that I have tried before I have always found to be of excellent build quality and they always sound perfect. Therefore, I was delighted when the Edifier S350DB turned up to try out.
Edifier’s S350DB is a 2.1 wired/wireless bookshelf speaker system. They come in a dark wood colour and look great with a classic old school appearance. The speakers and subwoofers together weigh around 19kg. As for the most important feature; the sound, they really do bring films and music to life!
The S350DB comes with a massive subwoofer and 2 smaller bookshelf speakers plus a nifty remote control (it’s round and looks cool). They have various audio output connections; Bluetooth, RCA, optical, coaxial and AUX.
As they have a few different connection types I had a variety of options that I could connect them to; television, phone, mp3 player, tablet etc, making them extremely versatile. I decided to use them via Bluetooth (Bluetooth 4.1 aptX Wireless Sound) with my tablet and by the 3.5mm and optical cable on my television. It doesn’t matter what connection you use, connection to your chosen device is straightforward and simple and you can select the connection on the remote control.
I love the way they look, simple and elegant, but the most important thing is the sound! And the output from the S350DB is perfect. Featuring an 8-Inch Booming Subwoofer and Titanium Dome Tweeters the sound is loud, full of bass and extremely clear. You can control the sound via the dials on the side of the speaker or by the remote control. With 150w power output the sound is perfect for all rooms in any house and doesn’t distort, even at the highest volume (with music, games and films). The amplified 8-inch subwoofer even comes with enhanced side panel bass reflex port to enhance the listening experience.
The Edifier S350DB also uses digital signal processing and dynamic range control for amplifying quiet sounds as well as reduce loud sounds that may cause clipping and unpleasant sounds.
Overall, I think the Edifier S350DB system is perfect. I love the old school look and the dark wood but most of all, the sound is crystal clear, loud and enjoyable – a real pleasure for the ears and eyes. Using them with music and films really does make the watching and listening experience so much more enjoyable.
As with all the Edifier equipment I have used to date, the build quality is of a very high standard and these speakers are worth every penny of their £250 price tag.
They have a very impressive look with an even more impressive sound.
