Edifier Soundbar USB Review

Rating: 8/10

Best Price:  £39.99 here.

+ Nice aluminium finish
-      Overly complicated volume control
+ Keeps wires to a minimum

What it does: The Soundbar is an all in one micro speaker powered by USB with full audio streaming capability designed to sit on your laptop just in front of your screen.  

First Impressions:
            Ease of use – Set up is easy, just plug in and play. However the volume control is overcomplicated. The volume is controlled by a button on the side of the bar. To turn down the volume you have to hold the button down and to turn it up you have to push it multiple times. It would be simpler surely to have the same button but make it twist like a conventional volume dial.

-          Design – The Soundbar is cased in elegant brushed aluminium with a sleek and slim design.

-         Sound Quality – Good for its size, but don’t expect any great depth or breadth of sound from such a small system. Listen to a recording of the sound bar here.

What’s in the box:
-         Soundbar
-         USB Connector
-         Aux Cable
-         Carry Pouch
-         Manual

Tech Specs: - Speaker Dimensions (W x H x D): 261mm x 36mm x 44mm
-         Full specs here.

A nice looking micro speaker system ideal for those times when you are watching films away from your desk and need to boost the usually pitiful volume of your laptops inbuilt speakers.
