Edifier is a Chinese manufacturer that’s known for delivering value-focused bookshelf speakers and wireless earbuds, and it has gained a lot of momentum in recent years in the sub-$300 category.

The R1280DBs is an updated model of the R1280DB, a stalwart in this category. The R1280DB launched back in 2017 and immediately became a hit thanks to its sound quality and feature-set, and with the R1280DBs, Edifier is adding better Bluetooth connectivity and a few extra features, like the ability to connect to an external subwoofer.
