Today I am going to review a pair of bluetooth speakers from a company called Edifier a small national company established in Beijing, China in May 1996 that initially focused within the China domestic market, where it is a market leader today selling varies sound products. Just like the Exclaim and Luna speaker reviews I reviewed from them These bookshelf speakers are just as powerful as anything Edifier sells while still looking great to put on a bookshelf . This speaker costs about $149 USD but could be lower depending on where you buy the product the speaker also comes with Free shipping if bought direct from Edifier or Amazon US , so that’s all you will pay. So not bad for the price but how does it perform? That’s what this review intends to show you, so read on….
Product Name: Edifier R1700BT Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers
Provider: Edifier USA
The packaging, is a larger sized box then the Exclaim box which opens from the top to a cardboard box insert and is kinda like how Apple packed my Macbook Pro neatly packed inside is the product. The front box cover shows the Edifier R1700BT on the box for retail purposes as well as features and specifications of the Edifier R1700BT
The speaker does have a few identifying marks on it which is the Edifier logo on the bottom-front of each speaker There is also volume dial which doesn’t have a set dial like the bass and treble dials do There is also a power switch so you don’t have to hold a button to turn off you can switch from 3.5 to blue on the remote or dial unlike other speakers you will need to switch to bluetooth mode in order to pair the speaker which still isn’t a problem for me. The Edifier product name and tech specs on the back of the right main speaker and each speaker has rubber feet This speaker indeed lives up to the fresh design in my opinion…
The speaker comes with a limited warranty, Instruction manual in a few different languages of course English is one of them there is a 3mm aux to red/white audio cable to use on most flat screen tv’s for when your tv doesn’t have bluetooth (like how I use my speakers) for the best and easiest home entertainment system setup Something these speaker lacks and I wish they could build upon is the remote it’s all black so you can barely see what you are pressing unless you memorize the buttons.
On the right speaker you will find the attached Power cord to power the speaker as well the spot for your aux cable to go into from your tv also you will also find on the left side the port to connect it to right speaker.
This speaker is very easy to pair just turn on the bluetooth setting on your device then make sure the speaker is and in the bluetooth mode (blue light)
I used these Fall of last year and still do like most other speakers from Edifier I found this speaker to be (um how do I put this) AWESOME! I watched several movies and my daily tv shows on my tv and paired it up with my phone to listen to spotify with these speakers
So yes the speaker comes with price tag that for some budgets might be high, but is it even worth it? I would say Yes compared to most other high-end big bulky tv entertainment speakers out there So in all it’s not bad for a bluetooth/ home entertainment speaker
The final score averages out to be a 10 out of 10, but that takes into account everything over the year I’ve reviewed this, but as you can see below it the pros out do the cons by a long shot.
|+ Decent Price
+Well made and Looks perfect on a bookshelf
+Sound is superb and lives up to being a exceptional speaker to use with your tv and paired with your tablet/phone/laptop
|–Yes make the REMOTE with readable text and not a BLACK remote with black small text|
