Edifier S350DB review

Edifier has an old-school looking, but modern sounding speakers series that can seriously enhance your listening experience. The Edifier S350DB is a 2.1 speaker system that can easily connect to any system available around.


For my testing I had these speakers connected to my Amazon Fire TV via optical cable. This provided an immediate improvement in our TV watching. The small speakers in our TV were instantly replaced with these bookshelf speakers and subwoofer, providing clear sound for dialogs, special effects and music track.


This immediate improvement comes thanks to a built-in amplifier that provides a dynamic range control, enhancing quiet sounds, making dialog clearer and giving deep bass tones when needed.


The output for each bookshelf speaker is 15W (treble), 25W (midrange and bass) plus 70W (subwoofer). This combination provides  frequency response in the 160Hz - 20KHz (LR) and 40Hz - 160Hz (subwoofer). This means you can easily fill a medium sized room with a lot of sound that actually sounds good wherever you are.


And here is the main thing: you want a set of speakers that will make your time more enjoyable, be it listening to music or watching a movie - and in this regard the Edifier S350DB delivers.


When I say you can connect to "any system", I am serious about it. The Edifier S350DB can connect via Bluetooth, coax, aux and optical medium. For those connecting via Bluetooth, support for Bluetooth 4.1 aptX means you get a higher quality sound than the standard A2DP connection. This also means you can connect your smartphone, tablet, smart speaker or laptop wirelessly to the Edifier S350DB and get  great sound without fuss.


The remote control sports an interesting design - although I am not completely fond of it. Because it's shaped like a disc, it means sometimes you get to point the wrong end to the speaker - but other than this I found it responsive at good distances. You also get feedback (source and actions) on a small display on the right speaker. You can use the remote control to power on/off , change volume and source.


You will also find volume, bass, treble knobs on the side of the right speaker. Except when adjusting how I like the treble/bass levels on first install I had no reason to use these - all the operations were through the remote control. 


In terms of design, the Edifier S350DB sports a classic bookshelf looks - with wooden sides and black front panel. This should go well with a modern decor or a more traditional one. The speakers are not small - 222 height x 127 width x 156 depth for the satellite speakers and 312 height x 265 width x 298 depth for the subwoofer.


The Edifier S350DB sounds like (no pun intended) an ideal option for anyone looking to get a better sound out of their studio or lounge setup, without going through the exercise of a more expensive setup that needs more space.
