If you’re looking for cheap Bluetooth earbuds, you’ll probably come across the EDIFIER brand sooner or later.

EDIFIER W280BT: Design and Appearance

The EDIFIER W280BT are pretty classic Bluetooth earphones. That means these are not completely wireless like most competitors, but the left and right earplugs are still connected with a short cable.

Only the communication with the smartphone is wireless. Qualitatively make the EDIFIER W280BT a good to the very good first impression.

EDIFIER relies on a rather solid and high-quality aluminum housing, whose back even has a milled texture.

Also in the back magnets are embedded, which allows the stitching of the earphones. A feature that can be extremely practical in practice!

This allows the earphones to be worn like a “necklace” around the neck when you take them out of your ears for a short time without having to worry about the loss.

The front part of the earphones is of course not made of aluminum, but with silicone sheathed, which should ensure a more comfortable wearing.

The cable which connects both earplugs is a normal, but sufficiently thick, round cable, which is pleasantly flexible.

A little under the right earplug is a small wired remote control with three buttons, the microphone, and micro USB charging port.

The three buttons are on the one hand a universal button, which serves the power as well as the play/pause function, and a volume up and down button. If you hold down the latter you can also fast forward or rewind.

The integrated battery is charged as usual via micro USB. According to EDIFIER in our test, the battery lasts up to 6 hours. Practically, between 4 and 6 are more realistic, depending on the volume.

Bonus points are available for IPX4 certification! IPX4 is protection against not strong jet water. A use during sports or in the rain so nothing stands in the way.

EDIFIER W280BT: Comfort

The EDIFIER W280BT in our analisis are in-ear earphones and therefore the wearing comfort fails. In contrast to normal in-ear earphones, the W280BT are slightly larger, of course, in this is slightly more electronics installed.

Does this affect the wearing comfort? Yes, of course, larger and heavier earphones are never good, but EDIFIER uses so-called “ear hooks” to compensate for this.

Ear hooks are small silicone straps that should wed something in your ear. This is to prevent the falling out of the earplugs.

This in combination with the slightly angled ear canals ensures quite a firm and comfortable grip. You can feel that you have something bigger in the earphones, but at least I have no bruises or problems with falling out.

Therefore, I would judge the wearing comfort with a 4-.

EDIFIER W280BT: Sound

Let’s get to the sound, the reason why earphones are primarily bought after all. Unsurprisingly, the EDIFIER W280BT sound very good!

It’s really amazing how good the sound is, for $25. But let’s start at the beginning. The EDIFIER W280BT in the test are well-balanced Bluetooth earphones, which sound sufficiently fun, but not too much in the “bass over everything” direction.

The heights are clear and clean, but not overly keen or exhausting. I mean to be able to hear in the lower treble or upper midton range, a somewhat unusual lowering, but otherwise no complaints.

As with most Bluetooth earphones in this price range, the tonal focus is not necessarily on the mids. These are qualitatively okay. It does not seem like it lacks sonority. Voices and vocals are well represented, but those who put too much emphasis on extra full vocals will probably still be rather mediocre. But in this price range, you can not have everything.

The W280BT already do a very good job. This also applies to the bass. The EDIFIER W280BT are not “absolute bass bombers”, but the bass has already been raised quite a bit!

If you are looking for a fun sound without the bass completely covering all other frequency ranges, then this is the place to go. The bass and generally the entire low-frequency range sounds lively, dynamic and natural!

Many cheaper Bluetooth earphones are a bit of a sensation, especially when it comes to the bass. Here, individual frequency ranges are drawn deeper than these are actually to create the appearance of a, particularly high bass power. This is not what the EDIFIER W280BT does!

The bass is powerful but sounds as it should. This fits quite well as a general description of the earphones. These sound lively and fun, but still quite natural.

Otherwise, the maximum volume is sufficient, the level stability is also okay and the spatial representation “standard”.

The Bluetooth quality is also inconspicuously good. This refers to both the range, but also the quality. Compression artifacts are not anticipated or are not obvious. The shielding of outside noise is medium.

EDIFIER W280BT: Conclusions and Reviews

With EDIFIER Bluetooth earbuds in our review, you do not go wrong, this also applies to the EDIFIER W280BT! These offer a very good workmanship, a good wearing comfort and of course not last a good sound!

EDIFIER W280BT Review: Budget Wireless Bluetooth Earphones 2018

The EDIFIER W280BT offer a natural to fun sound with good highs and a strong bass. However, the W280BT are not absolute bass monsters, which I consider positive. Too much bass is also not good and can affect this significantly negative depending on the music.

The W280BT Bluetooth earphones are the great all-rounder and feel good in all genres! The most important thing is that the earphones still do not sound flat or boring. It’s fun to use!

EDIFIER W280BT: Price and Where to buy cheaper?

At the moment you can buy EDIFIER W280BT earphones right now for a good and low price for only $26.

It is always impressive how much sound you get now for around $25! For thumbs up and of course a recommendation for the EDIFIER W280BT.
