Edifier R1010BT Review (Page 4 of 4)

Page 4 - Conclusion

If I had to nail a certain personality with the Edifier R1010BT, I would say it is a speaker where what you see is what you get. There is no surprise hidden for what it is capable of doing. Beginning at the top, we can see the Edifier R1010BT gets off to the right start with its clean aesthetics and solid build quality. While this is not necessarily a pair of speakers that is a trendsetter, the simple wooden enclosure feels like a classic look. The Edifier R1010BT feels sturdy and has the right amount of weight with its MDF casing. On the connection side, it is good to see both wired and wireless options for connecting your devices to the R1010BT. When it comes to sound reproduction, the R1010BT actually fares decently in its price class, with the ability to produce quite a bit of sound for its size. Soundstaging is also good, with a nice amount of depth and width. On the other hand, there are still improvements to be made, especially in the sound reproduction. While we can accept the lacking bass due to its smaller size, the output seems to be lacking cleanness and clarity. All of the ranges just seem to be messy. Separation and cohesiveness of the three frequencies could also be smoothed out overall. Furthermore, the overall bright sound may be fun for some but not for all, so keep this in mind. Moving back to the R1010BT speakers, there are a few features I wish Edifier would add. This includes having digital inputs, a stereo line output to cover the lower-end with a subwoofer, and a remote control to make adjustments easier with the speaker set. Even so, for $100 USD, the Edifier R1010BT provides a satisfactory output for its price, making it a good pair of budget speakers. It may not necessarily blow punches with pricier options, but it would be fool-hardy to expect it to do so.
