Edifier S350DB 2.1 Bookshelf Speaker and Subwoofer Review
The Edifier S350DV 2.1 speaker set offer a versatile system that can be used up close on a PC or further away on a TV when watching films.
This is a weighty set of speakers that arrive in a single, well packaged, box that you may require help (or a trolley) to carry.
As well as the left/right speaker and sub woofer you get all the cables to get setup. The cables are a good length for the average user to use this with a PC or TV.
Unlike the recently reviewed Edifier Spinnaker speaker system the S350DB speaker set takes a more traditional approach to it’s look, with a black front that exposes the speakers that are encased in a nice red wood enclosure.
As well as the speakers and cables you also get a round remote control. The remote takes a CR2025 battery (included with the speakers) and it allows you to change which input is used as well as the volume.
The right hand speaker also has controls for volume and input as well as additional controls to adjust the treble and bass levels. It also features a small screen which displays the input source.

Once powered up your ears are in for a treat whatever the source, the S350DBs are great for music, movies, TV or gaming. They’ve a great volume range, low enough to be comfortable sitting close up (for example using them with a PC), loud enough to fill a room with music or entertain you on the sofa while you watch the latest blockbuster.
Connection via Bluetooth was very simple and great if you’re using these with a portable device such as a mobile, tablet or laptop. You’ll see a laptop playing a game in the video below, this was connected to the speakers via Bluetooth and there wasn’t any noticeable lag in the audio compared to the on screen action.
Sound quality is very good, personal preference meant the bass and treble were set to the max to produces a lovely clear, and thumping, sound. The speakers handled the thumping bass of Sugar by Editors, to the guitar backed harmonies of Turin Brakes without any issues at all. Lyrics were clear, the bass, where required, kicked nicely and there was no noticeable distortion when turning up the volume, easily filling the room.
