Edifier Sound To Go PLUS hands-on
Appearing very much like a speaker, Edifier’s Sound To Go PLUS is a basic solution that’s sure to appease some people out there – albeit, it would’ve been something more if it were somehow Bluetooth connected. Regardless of that, it’s solidly constructed thanks to its brushed aluminum body, which we might add is also packing some serious weight! So much so that it can really knock out a person with a quick swing! On the front, the speaker grill tucks away its 2 channel stereo with 2 full range 1.25” drivers on each channel. Also, it’s worth mentioning that it features a built-on “Class D” amplifier to give your ears something to notice.
Along both sides of the speaker, there are circular sized buttons for volume up and down, which turn on the thing when they’re pressed simultaneously for 5 seconds. Additionally, a miniUSB port is used to charge its internal lithium-ion battery, while a 3.5mm auxiliary jack enables us to connect a wide array of devices to it – such as smartphones, MP3 players, and laptops. No doubt, its audio quality is extremely more robust and full bodied when compared to the meager tones put out by a Samsung Galaxy S III. Finally, it’s rated to provide 10 hours of battery time with a full charge, which is impressive to say the least compared to the lower times available with other wireless solutions. Therefore, when it comes down to it, the Edifier Sound To Go Plus will get the job done – albeit, we still yearn for a wireless option. Then again, at $49.99 online, some might see the value in it all.
