I wanted to start my acquaintance with Edifier with the initial version of wireless headphones called Edifier TWS1.
In this article, I will introduce you to design, sound quality and I will tell you my opinion about the main disadvantages and advantages.
At the moment, you can buy Edifier TWS1 headphones at a low price of about $30.
What can the initial headphone model boast of? Inside the case, a Qualcomm QCC3020 audio chip with support for aptX codec is installed. Also, the good battery life on a single charge for about 8 hours and much more.
As for its price, TWS headphones are very attractive, so if you are interested, I propose to start a detailed look.
Edifier TWS1: Specifications
Edifier TWS1: Unboxing
The standard square box is white in color, where on the front part are headphones with the name of the model and company.
On the back of the box are the main technical specifications.
Inside the box, I found a charging case and the headphones themselves, which were protected by foam and film. In addition, a short micro USB cable for charging, instructions in English and three pairs of ear pads.
The earpads are made of quality material, they are soft and very pleasant to the touch. For me, this time the smallest size of earpads came up.
Edifier TWS1: Design
Edifier offers two versions of the TWS1 model – black and white, I ordered myself a white one.
The headphone case is made of good glossy plastic, which is assembled without any defects. Fingerprints on a white gloss are not as visible as on black and this is a plus for me.
The case of the Edifier TWS1 is quite lightweight, only 4.5 grams each channel of the headphones and in the ears sit well.
Even with physical activity, the headphones stay in your ears without any problems.
On the front of the headphone is touch control and for its class and price is a very rare occurrence.
On the side faces, there is a headphone hole with a charge and notification indicator, and a channel designation is also present.
The inner part received two contacts for charging with a magnetic connection.
The budget model of wireless headphones has IPX5 standard protection against water, which allows you to play sports in the rain or snow.
The charging box is similarly made of glossy white plastic and has a fairly compact size. For example, it fits in a small pocket of jeans without much difficulty.
On the back of the case, there is a micro USB port for charging.
There will be no fast charge, but considering its price, it is difficult to expect a fast charge.
I have no complaints about the quality of the assembly of the charging case, as everything was done and assembled well for its price.
Edifier TWS1: Connection and Control
The wireless headphones received a Qualcomm chipset and a Bluetooth 5.0 connection, which has a high-speed transmission of speeds up to 3.0 MB/s.
During testing, Edifier TWS1 kept in touch well even through two walls in the apartment. Also, I did not find interruptions or loss of communication.
The connection is the same as most wireless headphones – simple and intuitive.
The same applies to control, with one-touch – play/pause, double-tap next or previous track, and triple touch – call voice assistant. The downside is the lack of volume control. As I already mentioned, the headphones have touch controls, which are easy to get used to and random touches will be minimal.
Edifier TWS1: Sound
An 8mm dynamic emitter was installed inside the headphone housing, which is larger than the older brother Edifier TWS5 with 6mm.
Thanks to the good 8mm driver size, the Edifier TWS1 sound exceeds its expectations. The low frequencies and bass got a solid middle, also the bass is middle level – not strong and weak, just for me it is perfect.
The mid frequencies have a good supply of sound quality. Detailing is not the highest, but for every day listening to music or movies, it will be enough.
The high frequencies are likewise not ideal, but given their price, I can’t say that they are bad. The sound at maximum volume does not ring and does not wheeze, generally good.
In terms of volume, for me personally 60% of the volume was the maximum figure, as my ears started to hurt louder. That is, the volume margin is even higher than you want.
The quality of the microphone is average, but you can calmly talk with the other person and it will hear you without any problems.
Edifier TWS1: Battery
The main feature of the Edifier TWS1 wireless headphones is a 60 mAh battery capacity and, according to the manufacturer, the battery life will be 8 hours.
During testing at maximum volume, TWS1 headphones worked for 8 hours and 20 minutes. These are the longest-running headphones I’ve tested.
You can also charge the headphones through the box 3 times, which will get a total operating time of about 32 hours.
The charging time will be approximately 2 hours.
Edifier TWS1: Conclusions and Reviews
With the Edifier TWS1 budget headphones, I was really surprised both in terms of build and sound quality for this money.
Given that the TWS1 model received a Qualcomm QCC3020 chip with support for the aptX codec, the sound very surrounds and it is a pleasure to listen to it.
Also, another positive aspect is the battery life on a single charge – almost 8.5 hours.
Edifier TWS1: Price and Where to buy cheaper?
At the time of writing, Edifier TWS1 is priced at $31.49 and you can buy at a 30% discount.
Once again, I am convinced that even budget wireless headphones show themselves on the positive side than the middle segment of this category.
