In spite of the fact that the Edifier R1280DB is largely still an entry-level monitor, it still offers some incredible sound quality. Released: 17th June 2021. The R1280DB has the classic look you love with all new features of modern powered Bluetooth speakers. The clean wooden finish of the R1280DB bookshelf speakers leave a lasting impression of elegance and luxury. The upgraded specs accommodate a standard of professionalism while improving quality and performance. The naturally fine-tuned Bluetooth bookshelf speaker is enjoyable in just about any setting enhancing the style of your domestic living space. However what if you have to choose one as there are no clear differences mentioned. But no need to in this guide you’ll find out.

The Bluetooth, however, is kind of like the remote control. While, yes, it certainly has its conveniences, it ultimately comes across a little more like adding on for the sake of adding on.If you’re after a significant upgrade in power for your TV or PC monitor speakers, the Edifier R1280DB are a great option. They deliver Hi-Fi-like levels of power and warmth, all without the hassle of any extra equipment, and for a bargain price. Achieve HD audio with the help of the optical and coaxial inputs which are additions to the R1280DB Bluetooth speakers. We have kept the two RCA connections for both RCA and AUX connection. Also, wirelessly connect to your phone or laptop with Bluetooth. Edifier Bluetooth bookshelf speaker specs provide for the quintessential modern experience. Comprehension and control, all at your fingertips. You may think this a small issue but I found the volume adjustment to be overly smooth and subtle, such that it was quite difficult to immediately tell the difference, making it all too easy to press the volume button too many times before realising the volume had changed. The R1280DBs is designed to look like a premium product, and the build quality is similarly robust.

The Edifier R1700BT can deliver impressive audio considering the compact size and excellent price point. Of course, with an optical audio port and a coaxial input joining the T models’ dual RCA inputs, you can physically connect these bookshelf speakers to four different devices and appliances at the same time. That not only makes it a perfect addition to a modest entertainment center where there might be a PlayStation or Xbox, a vinyl player, and another media player on top of the TV, but it also makes your entertainment experience a lot more seamless. With the 70W RMS power, the R1850DB reaches up to volumes of around 102-104dB before any noticeable distortion.The Soundfield Spacializer does, however, make movies and TV shows a lot more cinematic. As it’s supposed to, as Edifier says, “produce a panoramic sound stage,” it isn’t surprising that it sounds better on videos than it does on music. We’d even go as far as to say that we prefer watching movies and shows with it on, as the alternative just sounds flatter. The performance of the Edifier R1280DB speaker in the connection of the high, mid, and low-frequency range is relatively natural. Its accurate sound phase makes us feel very comfortable. It seems that it is not a problem to play pop music in this kind of sound, which is at least enough to satisfy most users. Conclusion Instead, it can give us a perfect sense of hearing and ensure the performance of various frequency bands. That seems to be enough for entry-level 2.0 speakers. However, it can be honestly said that many other entry-level 2.0 speakers have not yet met this requirement. The R1850DB’s small but smart improvements across the frequency range, especially when it comes to the bass and mids, result in a more refined and complete listening experience compared to the R1700BT.

Thankfully, there are some monitors that are bridging that “middleman” gap and managing to cater to both sides of the ledger. Personally, I’m not a huge Bluetooth fan (I happen to like wired headphones, thank you) so this didn’t really do much for me one way or another. For an optimal listening experience, you’ll need to pair your bookshelf speaker with a good subwoofer. The R1280DBs come with a sub-out port which you can use to connect a subwoofer to enable the speakers to produce rich and deep bass. Side control panel Generally, the way it works is that the right speakers for you aren’t cheap and the cheap ones aren’t good. When it comes to connectivity, you’ll find that one speaker is Bluetooth and the other is not. The Edifier 1280db has Bluetooth, and the 1280t does not and that is the major difference between the two speakers.

When you look at the price, it really isn’t that much more expensive and I’ve seen it on sale multiple times. Given the size and heft of these speakers compared with most PC speakers, it’s reasonable to expect a powerful and full sound – and sure enough the Edifier R1280DB deliver the goods. There’s more than enough volume for any PC setup and plenty to fill a modest-sized living room too. Drivers: 1 x 4.57″ / 116 mm Woofer (per Speaker), 1 x 0.51″ / 13 mm Silk Dome Tweeter (per Speaker) The Edifier R1280DBs sports a side panel with all the controls you need to customize your sound output. The panel features controls for volume, bass, and treble for precision tuning and maximum convenience. An updated remote control is also included to allow you to switch between different settings/modes effortlessly. Classic MDF construction In terms of the Edifier R1280DB’s specs, it’s pretty much got everything covered. Hitting at a frequency response range between 55Hz and 20KHz, its lowest of lows hits pretty close to the average human’s bottommost hearing range (20Hz).

While these are two great speakers, I also wrote a full article on the best edifier speakers over here. Controls Winner: Edifier R1850DB Adjust the EQ using the on-board controls located on the active/powered Bluetooth speaker. Treble, bass, and volume knobs located on the side panel. The clear accessibility to on-board controls and modern functionality heighten the amiability of the R1280BD powered Bluetooth speakers. Clear and concise controls compliment the manual providing uninterrupted playtime. With a 19mm silk dome tweeter, the R1700BT delivers smooth treble and does well to avoid any harshness. Unlike the traditional tweeters used in most cheap speakers, the Edifier R1280DBs use high-grade silk dome tweeters to add a life-like tone to the higher frequencies. These tweeters are also capable of playing more accurately with less distortion. Moreover, the tweeters provide a wider high-frequency range, which gives you an extensive sweet spot to work with. Supports Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless connectivityAnd, while you’ll need either a subwoofer or a larger speaker if you want to really blast your music, for the vast majority of people – either casually or professionally – this is going to be plenty loud in closed settings.
