What is Special About Edifier R1850DB Speakers?
There are so many things special about these Edifier R1850DB speakers. The first one is they are Bookshelf Speakers themselves! The second one is, they come with BLUETOOTH CONNECTION, next, there is a WIRELESS REMOTE to control its sound as per your need. Also, don’t forget about the optical cable and Subwoofer output that it comes with. The speakers look so good as they are made of medium-density fiberboard that feels good and sounds good! The sleek piano finish black color helps them blend easily so you can place them anywhere because they are super adjustable! Now you might be wondering why they are called bookshelf speakers? They are somewhat significant to fit into your bookshelf; however, they look right in there! Even if you close the fabric over to keep the speakers from dust, the 10-degree angle at the front will let out a decent sound that you can hear from every corner of your house. 

Even if you remove its front cover it won’t sit loosely on the mounts, so you don't have to worry about that. You are getting a 19mm bass and treble driver along with a 4-inch mid-range and woofer driver. You can either choose to play it over the cover or without the cover, that’s your choice. It looks good in either way since it has a second Edifier logo underneath the cover. You will be surprised by its sound quality, as good as it seems, it also sounds excellent, loud enough to reach every room of your house, and crystal clear quality is just so attractive (squeak)! Moreover, when you increase the volume of the speakers, you won’t hear any vibration or annoying rattling sound thus, you are going to encounter the well-balanced speakers that look good, feel good, and sound excellent.

Unboxing Edifier R1850DB Active Bookshelf Speakers
We all get excited when we buy something and unboxing the product is the best moment ever! The Edifier R1850DB Active Bookshelf Speakers come with everything you might search for in a good quality audio speaker. You are getting an optical cable and an RCA to 3.5mm as well. So you can quickly hook up your speakers to enjoy the music. You are also getting the Subwoofer output of 3.5 mm with the box, so if you want, you can connect to the subwoofer too. There is an interesting fact about  R1850DB Active Bookshelf Speakers, you shall find on the back panel of the R1850DB is a 300ma specification at 240v. These are also marked for 600ma at 120v which helps them maintain their 70w capacity.

Moreover, setting up your Edifier R1850DB speakers is super convenient regardless of whatever device you want it to be connected with. You can turn on your phone’s Bluetooth settings, and your smartphone will easily find the device. Even if you don’t want to connect it to a smartphone, you can join it to your laptop, tablet, iPhone or whatever device that supports Bluetooth connection. The RCA jacks are a super easy way to connect to your PC; however, the Coaxial and Optical can be a little more complicated since they require PCM at 44.1KHz or 48KHz, but that will be easier for anyone who has digital outputs.

The Edifier R1850DB Are the Perfect Speakers with BLUETOOTH V4.0 Connection
The WIRELESS REMOTE is used for volume control that you can apply to each of the speakers. As mentioned earlier, there is a 15 feet long optical cable that will help you connect the two speakers with any audio player, a 3.5 mm AUX to RCA cable that is going to be suitable for an old fashioned audio player too. The remote has sperate volume control inputs along with the quick-hit buttons. The back of the speaker quickly takes care of the AUX, RCA, optical, and coaxial inputs as well as you can connect your smartphone or other latest devices via Bluetooth. The speaker comes with three dials that help you control the treble, bass, and volume manually.

It does not take more than 10 minutes to set up the speaker. Starting from unboxing it to playing sound, everything is super easy. However, you may find it a little bit difficult to figure out where you want to place the speakers. As the size is enormous, you have to choose a suitable place for it. Then enjoy playing movies, songs, record audios as well. You can connect it to your mobile to listen to music, or link to your laptop or LED TV to enjoy movies. You can use the speakers confidently since they are offering you a two-year warranty.

Edifier R1850DB Speaker Remote and Performance
I better talk about the Edifier R1850DB remote since it is a little bit different than other remotes, anyways. The remote comes with all the standard features that you would expect including the power track and convenient single select input control. The volume key works separately on each speaker, which you may find a bit turn off. That also means you will have to control the sound of both speakers individually even if you want to adjust their volumes in just one push of the button, you can’t do that.


When you talk about its performance, you would have to admit that it provides abundant and full sound and that too without any annoyance. The Bluetooth audio device provides you with super clear sound and absolutely in no comparison with small Bluetooth speakers! Thus, if you are looking for something extraordinary, don’t miss the Edifier R1850DB Active Bookshelf Speakers, it might be your only suitable Bluetooth speaker. 

Are You Going to Buy These Bookshelf Speakers?
I have already bought them and liked them. So the question is, are you going to buy these Edifier R1850DB Active Bookshelf Speakers too? The Edifier R1850DB Active speakers are most of the time placed on bookshelves; however, it is not going to be absurd if you put them anywhere else. You can place them on either side of your TV, with your record player, at the hands of your monitor, or wherever you want. But of course, that is depending on if you wish to buy these set of speakers or not. If you are looking for some quality speaker sets, the Edifier’s R1850DB system is just the favorite choice.

Since the speakers offer a good look, full and loud clear sound, buying them is the option. The speakers are well-built with a beautiful black finish and also provide you a two-year warranty. You might feel that it needs a little more bass, but you can use the subwoofer output to complete the need.

The disadvantage of the Edifier R1850DB Active Bookshelf Speakers
There is nothing to dislike about these speakers. Edifier has designed them in a way where they look standard yet straightforward, provide loud yet precise sound, costs $200 yet cheap. I know, some readers are wondering of what I said, reasonable price! Yet since there are so many speakers available on the market less expensive than these Edifier R1850DB Active Bookshelf Speakers? The truth is they are not giving you as many features and quality as Edifier R1850DB Active Bookshelf Speakers.

If you are looking for a real downside of the speaker, then I would say it is the bass. If you need a little more bass, then bad luck for you, but the speakers are providing you with so much quality I think you will forget that you ever met a downside of this speaker. Moreover, I already told you that there is a subwoofer output included so you can quickly turn the 2.0 setup into a 2.1 structure.
