There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, there is no password or security whatsoever for Bluetooth, and there is no way to turn Bluetooth off. It is always in pairing mode. One of my neighbors' laptop keeps connecting to them, sometimes late in the night when we were watching TV with line-in audio. This interrupts the audio by switching to Bluetooth. Although we tried to turn the power off when not in use, there is no way to stop someone else connecting to Bluetooth when we were using the speakers.
EDIT: An instruction I found online, which claims to be from Edifier support, is to press and hold the volume key for 15 seconds to disable Bluetooth. It does not work for my speakers. I could still connect to Bluetooth after doing so.
FINAL EDIT: +2 Stars for excellent customer service. I replaced them with a pairs of Edifier R1850DB . Basically the same speakers, but with a better remote and seperate input selection, and Bluetooth 4.1. And the Bluetooth can be turned off.
First off to give a little perspective I rarely venture outside of Klipsch products. I have plenty of experience with all sorts of high end audio equipment from B&O to reference HK, NAD receivers, so on and so forth... so my amazement with these speakers is not due to never hearing any high end equipment.
So why did I even take a chance with these? My little sister wanted a record player setup so I got her an Audio Technica LP60 to start her beginner setup. I wanted a pair of bookshelf speakers for a clean setup and I wanted the speakers to be powered so she didn't need to mess with an amp. That ruled out the Klipsch bookshelf speakers at this price point and unfortunately I couldn't use the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 system (best bang for my buck of all time, have had them for over 10 years now) as it has a separate sub and too many cables for it to be attractive with her setup.
Aesthetically, these are knockouts considering the price point.The fit and finish is excellent, they have a healthy weight to them and no one would suspect that this isn't real wood. I personally very much like the look with the speaker grills off. It presents itself as a speaker pair only acquired with a higher budget.
The important part - sound. They blew me away when I first set them up. They are bright, distortion free and have a surprising amount of bass. In fact, even though I am normally a bass fanatic these satisfy me in nearly every genre of music outside of EDM. They do run out of steam when playing Odesza for example but it is not a bad sound, the mid just starts to pull away and take over. Also, these things can get LOUD. More importantly, there is very little distortion up until max and the separation in instruments/vocals remain.
I do not know how many this will help but as I am typing this review I have the speakers sitting directly beside my Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 system. It has been a gold standard for me for over a decade in terms of price vs. performance and while this is not exactly apples to apples (2.0 to 2.1) it may provide some relative insight for similarly priced often computer speaker systems. The Klipsch sounds bigger as if a wider sound stage but this may be largely due to the powered subwoofer. Obviously, the Klipsch wipes the floor in terms of bass performance because of the sub and with the horns in the speakers it does often sound a bit brighter. The Edifier however consistently sounds warmer and a bit tighter. When comparing the two systems side by side the real determining factor is how much bass you need and/or if you need a bookshelf setup as with 95% of media they both perform beautifully. It is only in the bass heavy applications the similarly priced Klipsch system pulls ahead.
Additionally, the bluetooth works very well and there is very little lag or interference. The range is great, too.
All in all, for a pair of speakers I would have never even considered if it weren't for this budget system I am putting together, I am incredibly impressed. So much so that I may cheat on Klipsch and purchase Edifier's higher end bookshelf system and really see what this company is capable of.
In the snobby ecosystem of audiophiles and sound enthusiasts your name rings as clear as a cinderblock dropping in a foggy marsh.
"Hey Matt, what are those beautiful speakers laying upon your desk?"
"Oh these? These are just my Edifiers"
(Crickets, sneeze, baby crying)
But your audio craftsmanship of your speakers could go toe to toe with my roomate's Klipsch's and Harmon Kardon's at a fraction of their overpriced nature, and you're completely free of the douchery that sometimes exists in the audio world. Look, we go to the trusted, crazy high priced brands because we see them as a guarantee of quality. (Except Beats, those are just... Well you know.) However, here we have an anomaly in a sea of monotony, a clear champion of a balance of clear highs, resounding mids and sweet sweet solid kicking bass in a polished beautiful faux woodgrain facade.
The bluetooth connectivity changed my life after coming from some POS speakers I've had since freshman year.
10 audiophile tears out of 10, I love these speakers so much.
I love you.

I expected that these speakers would be ok for that purpose once in a while.
Boy was I surprised! I found that listening to Mozart's clarinet concert I was filled with Man's desiring, and a new appreciation for life due to the clarity of low frequency response I did not expect from 4" bass drivers!
Needless to say I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend these speakers for people who enjoy similar pursuits.

This speaker set aims to please from the get-go. From the unboxing to the first glimpse of the gorgeous faux-walnut to the ease of setup, the R1700bt is flawless in those regards. Volume levels went from whisper quiet to neighbour-waking loud, so no complaints there either. However, that was where the fun ended as some odd frequency response could be heard when different tracks were played. After about a 5-hour burn in, the sound signature settled down enough for an audition. For the remainder of this review, I will focus on my experience with the sound quality as I don't care much about other factors such as aesthetics or packaging when I purchase speakers.
First thing I noticed was the very sibilant and bright highs and vocals. The closest thing that I've heard to this is the virtual surround effect that some DACs offer. It's not an unpleasant effect when used in moderation and I think Edifier did a great job here. Vocal tracks were stunning for a <$200 speaker set. For pure vocals, the R1700bt beat every other computer speaker I've ever owned/auditioned: Edifier E3200, Simple Audio Listen, Fluance Fi30, Logitech Z533, and Tivoli Model Two. Secondly, the volume went much higher than I would likely ever play my music even in a largish 60ft2 room. The last thing about the R1700bt that put a smile on my face was the openness of the sound when tuned to -2 Treble/-4 Bass. There was very little box-like boominess, which is just the way I like it. It allowed the music to really be turned up without distortion.
However, after noting those strengths of the speakers, I also noticed several glaring weaknesses that no other review mentioned (even so-called professional reviews online). The first and most obvious is the complete lack of low-end bass; by which I mean <60hz. To challenge any of those aforementioned reviewers, I ask for them to please simply play "The Imperial March" from the ubiquitous Star Wars series. When I read all those reviews that stated "very nice", "strong", "full" bass, I expected the bass to at least beat the Tivoli Model Two 2.0 system that employs only single 3" drivers. But after just the first 30 seconds of "The Imperial March", I realized either all those reviewers didn't listen to any orchestral music with large drums or my speaker set is broken. "The Imperial March" became "The Imperial Walk" with barely any of the deep bass making its way to my ears. Much MUCH worse than my Model Two with their 3" drivers.
The second significant flaw that those "professional" reviewers failed to mention was the utter mess of the soundstage. Both the Tivoli and Fluance Fi30 handily beat the Edifier R1700bt when it came to highlighting the melody/focal point of the muscial score and separating the different harmonic parts into their individual strands. What actually came out from the R1700bt when compared to those speakers sounded more akin to a 2D painting with a cacophony of sound all intermixed and unrelated to each other. After some more careful listening, I believe this is in part due to the R1700bt having a flatter response curve than the Tivoli or Fluance and thus giving each instrument/vocal more of an equal representation. Whether this is good or bad is subjective: for me, I want to enjoy my music and not be distracted with overly harsh cymbals or annoying sizzles and pops from the accompaniment. Nonetheless, the result is a soundstage that is unable to "place" each instrument/vocal on the stage at all; everything comes out as one unit.
Before I conclude this review, I feel the need to emphasize that I DO like these speakers even with most of my review devoted to pointing out flaws. Hence the 4 star rating. However, it is even MORE important to add "for the price" to this conclusion. These are great speakers for the price, which I feel is what most reviews gloss over. No, the sound is NOT "golden", "perfect", or even close to "joyous" on an absolute value. It is merely wonderful for the lack of better competition. I know what good sound sounds like: B&W 802 hooked up to Moon NEO DAC and custom tube amp serves as my reference. Of course I don't expect a $200 bookshelf speaker set to come even remotely close to that setup. But for me to state that the R1700bt has solid bass, full mids, and clear/crisp highs would be a blatant lie. Kudos if you have reached this point of this review! My parting words for you will be to not expect much better sound that what this speaker set costs; there is no miracle yet.
have been spoilt by my earlier logitech setup (miss the subwoofer and low thundering sound). For the purpose I bought them (listening to music), they do justice and go beyond. Love them. Should you buy them? My Answer - Hell yeah!
Date : 10th November 2019
I have been listening them for more than 1.5 years. The sound quality is still fantastic and no problem at all. Most people who come home, and if I like them enough, I give them a demo of these incredible set of speakers and all I get in return is mesmerised faces! Thank you Edifier for making this possible.
I'll keep updating this review.
