Edifier M1380 2.1 Review
:Good sound quality for price. Solid build.
The Edifier M1380 2.1 speaker system features two full range satellites tuned, calibrated and matched with the subwoofer to form a balance of clarity, richness and full audio output. Equipped with a wired remote that includes a headphone jack and an auxiliary 3.5 mm stereo input on the unit, the M1380 can be used solo or easily connected to any host device.
Having tried other Edifier PC speakers in the past, I have always had them in my book of high expectations and like I once mentioned my current PC speakers, the Logitech versions I currently use is very adequate with good bass, treble and some adjustable control behind the subwoofer. The Edifier M1380 would definitely stand a good chance when compared to some of the pricey desktop speakers on the market today..
- Wooden MDF enclosed subwoofer with front bass reflex port that delivers rich and detailed audio.
- Two full-range satellites tuned, calibrated and matched with the subwoofer
- 3.5mm stereo jack and RCA input
- Wired remote controller with Headphones jack
- Magnetically shielded satellites and subwoofer
Unboxing and First look video of the Edifier M1380
The M1380 features two full range satellites tuned, calibrated and matched with the subwoofer and can be connected to just about any device with 3.5mm port. The subwoofer is housed in a MDF wood casing giving it a solid result when it comes to bass and attached to the subwoofer is a remote control which comes in handy for stand alone control instead of tweaking PC volume or source volume all the time.
Overall design is very nice and stays very stable and sturdy on the desk; the paint work will withstand dust and regular cleaning. The satellite speakers also looks the part and compliments the subwoofer’s musical and modern look.
If you watch the video above and hear the sound quality, although it does not fully justify the quality and performance but you can see that at high volume the bass sounds solid and the treble doesn’t sound over-tuned; there are no crackling or interference from the mobile device connected next to it and that is what its all about.
The bass reflex port was pumping out bass adequately and with a song I am familiar with how it should sound, it definitely lives up to its features and specifications. At the price point from £45 from the likes of Amazon or Currys here in the UK, you can not go wrong with the M1380.
