These Edifier Prisma e 3350BT are Bluetooth speakers of very good quality, sound and, at these prices (retailing at £79.99), value. The Prisma is the younger sister of the Edifier Spinnakers that were exceptionally excellent in respect of Bluetooth sound quality.
I’ve been listening to these Prismas from my iPhone in the kitchen but they run and are designed as a 2.1 speaker solution for laptops with low desktop clutter. I have done this too and from the laptop they are a really nice solution, playing music from the likes of Spotify seamlessly. Whilst retaining the flexibility of Blutooth and ease of set-up from the box, pairing is exceptionally easy, these Prismas are lacking the bass definition you might prefer despite having the sub-woofer separately from the two side speakers. The bass level is adjustable but I have had the bass level turned up to maximum and have been a fraction underwhelmed.
In respect of design, there is a quality feel to this product. The subwoofer in white looks like a Star Wars Storm troopers helmet and is modern stylish. The top of the ‘helmet’ shows red when the device is on standby but glows blue when Bluetooth is connected. The range of the device to a Bluetooth source is claimed at 10 meters and I can certainly confirm a 7-8 meter range without drop-out. The cables between the sub and the side speakers are of a good length so the soundstage is large if required. The volume control is connected directly to the sub (unlike the Spinnaker) and this module has a headphones and Aux input for non-bluetooth sources.
In summary, a very nice Bluetooth speaker solution and, if you don’t crave bass, a good value for money solution for laptops and kitchens alike.
